I just saw some chatter in the Erin Condren Fan Club regarding the monthly spread for March 2014. Here is 1/2 of the monthly spread in all of its festive green goodness! Look closely at the bottom left corner.
This cannot be happening!! Itty, bitty, teeny, tiny boxes….4 days worth?? NO!!!!
When I first got my planner and saw this, I promptly went to work and made some changes. I immediately used my Bic whiteout tape and covered the lines that divided the boxes as well as the numbers 30 & 31. This gave me full size boxes for March 23 & 24. Don’t mind how messy those boxes look. I had a disagreement with some uncooperative Washi tape, and it tore my pages just a bit. No worries, I can live with it.
After I redeemed the squares for March 23 & 24, I went back up to the top left of my monthly spread and used the first 2 boxes, and wrote in a 30 in the Sunday box and a 31 in the Monday box, and finished out my month.
This works for me.
I went through the rest of my planner and found the same issue in November 2014, only it affects just one box, instead of two. I do hope they will do something different in the 2015 planners. Having just a 1/2 box for a day will NEVER work for me!

Kristy, I can put your mind at ease: they will NOT do anything about this! I complained about it TWO years ago (2011/2012 planners), and just got the generic “we’ll look into this, thanks for your feedback”…
Thanks for your tip: I’ll do it right away!
I would definitely like it if they would change it, but if they don’t, I can live with it. I don’t mind the last day or two wrapping back up to the top. It’s a pretty easy fix and it doesn’t annoy me at all, even if I have to edit it myself to make it happen! Thanks for your feedback! I hope my idea works for you! ~Kristy
This is such an awesome idea and I’m definitely going to do this. The tiny boxes were making me crazy as well!
