Initially I used a standard month-at-a-glance calendar, but I found it a nuisance writing things inside of little boxes. Then I switched to a linear perpetual calendar (similar to this) - basically just a lined, numbered list - but found that in locating today on the page, I often don't know the date exactly, but rely on the day of the week as an indexing cue.
So what I came up with was a list format, but with the day numbers offset according to the day of the week. Here is this month's in PDF form: weekdays only, which is what I use, or with the full week. One of these days I may automate the generation of these, but in the meantime I'll try to post each month's as I generate it for myself.
