    Planners

    A financial guy sent to us a paper planner for an Xmas gift.

    I haven't used a paper planner for a dozen years. I will cop to using a large wall calendar for events that DH needs to know about that I book, but those are few.

    I use a digital calendar to write appts, "to do" lists and events on.

    I don't know if I should be insulted because he thinks we are old and therefore paper based. ?? actually, DH IS paper based because he wants financial reports in paper. Maybe that's where our financial guy got this idea.

    anyway. How many of you use paper planners? Ive been kind of surprised to see that designing these is a regular little industry where personal coach gurus stamp themselves all over a planner and sell it as part of their package. I had assumed younger people use digital calendars and planners.

    I use only paper planners and rotate among different types depending on what I am trying to accomplish. I love the medium size but alas my eyes are giving out so I have gone last week to the 8 1/2 by 11 paper and am finding it a good fit for my home based lifestyle.

    When I had three kids at home with lots of schedules, I used a vertical day timer that was wonderful. But now I keep a lot of financial notes in there so I use a two page a day Franklin Covey refill.

    I have a leather looseleaf notebook and it makes me happy to hold it, use it, and look at it. I'm a very tactile person, a kinesthetic and visual learner, and I hate the way digital planners look. They irritate me, and always have since my first Palm Pilot.

    Very paper based. Have never found a panner I really like, so am constantly printing out "improved" pages or drawing lines in notebooks.

    I don't use any kind of planner, but I use a small pocket datebook calendar to keep track of bills. I like the idea of digital planners, but that's as far as it ever gets.

    I did solely paper because I could not sync to my work calendar to my private and I did not want work seeing my private calendar if I used theirs. Fine until a few months ago when I realized this really is not working for this household. Everyone has so many appts and only one person can drive. So I had to copy my needs into an email, wait for them to email their stuff and things started slipping through the cracks because no one was updating changes. So I started using the calendar app in Apple products, we all have Apple stuff. I showed them how easy it is to share a calendar and to enter things on it. That was a few months ago. I'm going all digital with or without them as of 1/1. I have to keep track of every appt, every test I have per the SSDI lawyer, make sure I get copies of it all, keep track of healthcare expenditures, etc. so digital is the way to go in this case. But I will miss being able to flip to that page where I know I wrote a note I'd need. But I just have to get better at using Notes.

    Does it have his name on it?
    Doubtful he was insulting you, but trying to choose the most useful, or all the cra*** advertising that they have to choose between.
