Shopping for a Planner?

In the last issue of Organize Magazine there was an ad for this planner created by professional organizer Julie Morgenstern and sold through Franklin Covey. Julie Morgenstern wrote the book Organizing from the Inside Out. Many of the people I work with already use or have need of planners and are just not interested in using a PDA. As a result, I am always on the lookout for a planner that fits the bill for an easy to use yet comprehensive planning tool. This planner has a clean-cut, sophisticated layout and looks very user friendly. It's daily pages have just what you need to organize your day. There's a nice two page spread with space for you to write your appointments in for the day and a whole page for daily tasks (a.k.a to do list). If your planner's just not cutting it or you're sick of all the separate lists you have going and you have no central place to keep track of your life, you really should check out this planner or take a look at this fantastic selection. I have to admitt--if I wasn't in love with my Treo I would get one of these cool planners. Once I saw all these cute planners I was actually tempted to go back to paper for a brief moment!

This looks fantastic! I am totally excited by this, but also wondering what the options are as far as electronics. What do they cost, what do you recommend, why go techno? Pros and Cons?


Take a look at some of my organizing success! (Photos and text used with permission.)

Client Feedback

I work out of a home office without any administrative support. I worked with Melissa to organize both my personal and professional effects as I prepared to relocate. I wish I had done it years ago. While organizing my office and paperwork Melissa identified my natural tendencies and created an organizational structure that was easy for me to maintain. When I began looking for a personal organizer, I mostly wanted someone else to come in and take care of the mess I had allowed to build up over the years. Working with an “uninterested” party during the purging process helped me lighten my load considerably. During the process Melissa provided me with simple intuitive skills that have not only allowed me to maintain my newly found order but help friends and family organize as well. I can honestly say hiring Melissa is one of the best things I have ever done for myself. Kelsi Reeves
