After having the 2014 agenda, I knew that I wanted another one for 2015. After receiving the item, I have to say I was somewhat disappointed. There were several changes made that I didn't feel was for the better. I don't like small spaces where I have to write so small and then I can't read it. The overall size was smaller in width which makes a huge difference. The tabs are alot smaller which make it harder to flip through. Although I do like the entire month having the tab including on the page. It makes it easier to grab the whole month. The good thing was great color choices and the removable divider seems to be made better and thicker so it won't tear so easy. The other thing I don't like that they change was the first few pages. They are wider than the others and cover the tabs and makes it inconvenient to flip to page you want. I ordered online and if I had seem in store I probably wouldn't have purchased it. I don't enjoy the hassle of returning so I am just going to keep it. I have been buying agendas from Vera Bradley for years and this was the first time I was disappointed. I love the products. I also purchased the tech backpack for work and I love it!!!

No longer a great product. Sooo disappointed!!
Why oh why did you change this product? Like many of the other reviewers I have purchased this agenda for years and years, and every year in October would transfer the last few months' pages to the next year's binder. It was convenient to take pages out to keep handwriting tidy, and the inside pockets are a must have. Seeing the changes are SUCH a disappointment. Spiral binder, lower quality paper, no pockets, no thank you. Will now have to hunt for something comparable elsewhere - and if the only options are spiral, I will choose one at a lower price point. Will check back next year just in case this company responds to customer feedback, the sentiment appears to be consistent with many of your repeat customers. Thanks

Why change a GREAT thing?? Ugh...
Just as I do every October/November, I went to my local Vera Bradley store to purchase my new agenda for the year. I can not even begin to express how disappointed I am in this "upgrade" to the product. Years prior, the agenda came with a GREAT three ring binding, hard cover and interior pockets. I can not even begin to express how unhappy I am that they have decided to go with the spiral binding. Its the worst. Spiral bindings get caught on the things in your bag, bend and break. When the sales girl handed me the "new" agenda, I actually laughed at her. while I flipped through the pages, I could tell that even the quality of the paper has changed. I get that the company is trying to save money, but I don't see how you are going to sell any of this years agendas. Such a disappointment.
