Whiteboard calendar with individual weekly magnets?

Looking for a 1-2 month whiteboard calendar where each week is a separate magnet.

The product I remember was a magnetic surface that could be mounted to a wall, and had magnets with a dry-erase surface. Each magnet was pre-printed with seven boxes, and a space to write in the day of the month. The unique thing was that each week was a separate magnet, so that at the end of the week, you could erase that week, slide the rest up, and put the blank one at the bottom. That would give you a calendar that always showed 5-6 weeks into the future, without turning pages, and without erasing and re-writing every week.

I saw something like this years ago at a store in Portland (Office Max or Fred Meyers, probably) but didn't buy it, and haven't seen one since, online or in stores.

I thought about making one, but it looks like that would involve buying a magnetic backing, individual magnets, and self-adhesive printable dry-erase surface to stick to the magnets. That's do-able, but if possible, I'd rather stick to off-the-shelf products. I'd like one that's 15 to 18 inches wide, but at this point, anything in any reasonable size would be appreciated.

Anyone have any ideas where I can get either just the pre-printed magnets, or a complete product? Looking for brick-and-mortar sources near the Twin Cities, or any online sources.

Best answer: I found these on Amazon.

I have four of the type daavviidd first linked to in his post. I got them at either Office Depot or Staples.

Response by poster: Thanks, Ddaavviidd, that first one's pretty much what I had in mind. SillyShepard, the Amazon one looks great, but I don't think it would work as well to stack a bunch of together.

Of course, if anyone has any other personal favorites, I'd be glad to see other options.
