Thing-a-Day 01: Numbers version of Compact Calendar

Numbers Compact Calendar

Today’s Commentary

I got started on my product for the day rather late, but this was due to starting a couple of positive things in the morning! First, I assembled a new storage shelf for the basement, which doubles my shoebox filing capacity. Then I started doing a big sort of the junk that clutters my upstairs office. The goal: come up with the minimum set of everyday goodies that I need, and then file the rest of it by collection. The bigger goal is to clear out the living room completely so I can finally redo the floors for the Living Room Cafe Project. It feels good to get these things unstuck!

Today’s Product

Anyway, today’s project was the conversion of the Compact Calendar from Microsoft Excel to Numbers, Apple’s spreadsheet program.

I had to take a different approach to get it to work, and I don’t have hobbies or month delineation working yet, but it’s usable!
