Sometimes Less Is More....

In an attempt to get organized last year I purchased a Pocket PC.

I will tell you that I'm glad I bought it, but for ALL the wrong reasons:


It does not keep me organized.

A few of my other attempts I have made are as follows:

Too bulky

(I found it funny that I was posting about organization when i took this picture. Notice all the clutter! lol...My ipod, my phone, a blue lighter from my work apron, and the workout pages THAT I WORKED OUT WITH! :)

& Not enough space to write on

After searching high and low and not saving a dollar in the process, I have finally found EXACTLY what works! :)

My $1.99 halfprice books bargain


Isn't it ugly!? lol But it is the BEST thing I've ever used! Color coordination makes all the difference!

Yep! Highlighting is wonderful isn't it! Each of my kids has their own "color" so I can keep track of who has what...

I had a PDA and never used it so I gave it to a friend.

I just write stuff I really need on my hand...lol

If it wasn’t for outlook and its incessant beeping to remind three days in advance every 15 minutes but an upcoming something or other, I would be totally lost.

Although you’re totally on to something with the colour coordinating thing…

The moral of the story? Cheaper is sometimes better. And the color coordination looks cool.

if it won't fit into my cell phone calendar, too bad. I have found it impossible to actually carry or keep a day-timer

now my gf has my phone tho, I guess I'm totally screwed.

maybe I'll try the hand thing

Sheri- YES! Favorite part of a new semester!

KV- lol! That's great! Totally adorable. :) I used to draw all over my legs when i was younger...then someone told me I'd get ink poisening. I believed them.. hehe

Karla- I used to be the same way...now I ignore it and it's pointless.

Kiminanda- Exactly! :)

Rayray- Weren't you supposed to be somewhere?? hehe

I am addicted to little books and planners -and pens. My husband and I are office supply junkies -we buys things sometimes without any intention of using it. It is shameful. However, I did buy and do use the clickable sharpie highlighters and colors.

I have a planner that I use and the calender in my Outlook. But the color's are cool and I think it's whatever works for you.

Jaime said...

Wow... you're really cleaning out lately! First the purse and now the organizer. :) It's the best feeling to be organized. Cleaning out a closet is like ultimate happiness for me. ;)

I love organizational tools so much! I get so excited about getting new ones. I can't wait until 2006 so that I can update everything!

Being organized is over rated...lol

I have over 60 full sized-books on my PDA. I have all my contacts and scheduals and everything else in it, and I keep it with me at all times.
It's four years old and held together with a little tape and a lot of prayer.
When it dies, I'll probably just have to sit in a dark room, because I won't know how to get out of the chair.

I've always wanted to buy a PDA...knowing all along that I really don't NEED one as bad as I WANT one. But I decided that "eating" and "paying the bills" was more important than scratching my technology itch. Dang you responsibility!

Kelly said...

At work, I am slowly trying to make the move from the old "At A Glance" desk calendar to Outlook. It is a challenge - and I don't like change!

Bekkah said...

Too funny, I have the exact Dell PDA that you have...got if for xmas from Ohio. I LOVE it! Fortunately, it works for me. Very happy to hear that you were able to find a calendar that works better for you!

I agree the simple, cheap things work best if you dedicate yourself to use it. My problem is--I never seem to dedicate myself to it. :)
