My goal for 2013 is to try and get calendars and task lists on my iPhone and iPad synched and working. In the mean time, I just love actual paper planners.
I like the smell of new, bound paper. I like to write on fresh pages and flip through them like I mean business.
A new planner holds the promise of a new, organized year. Just think of what I might do: Exercise, clean on a schedule, create menus—The sky is the limit! All I need is the right planner.
I’ve tried many. My mood changes. Some years I’m feeling hardbound daily planner-ish. Other years I throw caution to the wind and go for a soft-cover month-at-a glance. Lately I’ve been feeling like I want a weekly planner. I like to take life in chunks—weekly sized-chunks feel right for 2013.
What about you? Do you live by your planner or do you prefer to go freestyle with nothing more than a to-do list and more short-term memory than me? Here are my all-time favorites and a couple that I’d love to try.
