    Hi Hannah!

    So is this in addition to the Excel planner you convinced me to try? I’m on my second year with it and keep refining it to be more useful. I can’t imagine doing business without it!

    Have you gotten over the pad-on-desk Planner? That’s where I want mine, too. So far I’m addicted to large post-it pads but I’m up for something better.

    Hope all is well with you!

    Hi Jane, Yes, the Excel sheet tracks different stuff… this planner is more for day-to-day affairs. And, no I’m not quite over the on-the-desk planner. I’ve got an inefficient analogue-digital system going on right now. I hope to give into one of them before too long!

    As you know, I love my Planner Pad. But as I get ready to start a full-time job in an office, I can see the appeal of an electronic version – the Planner Pad weighs about a million pounds and is bigger than my purse. Don’t you miss writing those to-do items and checking them off by hand?

    I do, Helen, I do. Dragging to-dos from one place to the next is OK, but it’s not the same.
