I am a working Mom with older kids and I have struggled the last several years with a planner decision. I have tried and given up on a few paper choices. (Almost need a custom one.) Plus I would like something cute! Now I am thinking maybe software would be helpful to keep track of my work calls, follow up and To Do LIST.
What do you use? Paper or Software. Where did you get it? How long have you been using it? Thanks for your help. Lori

Have you tried google calendar? I use that and have it linked to my smart phone.

I second google calendar, synced to our phones. Good for reminders via text message too.

I struggle with the same thing. I am trying to use a paper calendar because it is easier to see the entire month than on my phone. I feel very outdated though.

I've tried to go digital with my calendar, but I just can't do it. I wish I could! Same thing with party-planning.

iCal synced with the laptop and my phone. I've used it for about a year and a half.
Looking back, I don't know how I kept up with the babies' +++++ medical appointments for there first year with a paper planner...what a disaster!
I've tried a number of to-do lists, but still use a simple word doc that I email to my phone every time I update it...a bit archaic but it works for me.

I'm able to see daily, weekly, and monthly with google calendar. Used to use paper calendar but by far I like using google calendar. I can also color code (multi jobs) and sync it with my husband's calendar so we can see each other's calendar.

|Posted: 1/23/2013 7:09:58 PM|Have to have paper! I have tried and tried the electronic versions and it just doesn't work for me.
I did the erin condren planner, and it was just too huge. This year, I've been using this planner. The stickers in the back are LDS themed, but since I'm LDS it doesn't bother me, and besides, I rarely actually use the stickers. I'm happy with the size of this one, but I wish the columns were different.
I'm with you, I need to have something custom-made!

watching this for good electronic alternatives. ..
For years and years I used the Palm Pilot calendar. Updated with as many events as I had available at the beginning of the month, then printed a copy to post on the fridge, copy to the Palm, copy to computer, updated as needed, and reprinted if necessary.
I keep trying various apple app calendar versions, plus moldy oldy palm version, and do not want to be dependent on Google (ack Google taking over the world!) so I keep searching.
