Most of the desk calendars featured here are of the page a day type that allows you to tear off the page when the day is over. Those are good for entertainment and keeping track of the date, but not for keeping track of meetings or marking down Mom’s birthday, Aunt Martha and Uncle Herbert’s 50th wedding anniversary, or your son’s soccer game time.
