  1. Buy in June.
  2. Filter by “2015” and “wall calendar” and the subjects “Art” and “Religion.”
  3. Sort by price. (Hint: some calendars display as $15, but they’re in the sort order in the right place because the 2015 price is $2.)
  4. VERY IMPORTANT:  Look at the backs of the calendars to make sure they are the FULL image, not “detail” shots.  The best “tell” is that they will all be different sizes.  Notice the good one below, followed by the bad one.

Every shot a perfect 12×12?  Not likely.

For example, there are a gillion Van Gogh calendars, but the 1.49 one HERE is the best.  See the white space?
