I need a new planner

I am a paper planner sort of girl. I know some are super electro with their calenders, but I need to scribble. I had a perfect 2008 planner from staples. It had monthly views and weekly with tons of blanks pages and spaces for my lists, but it is no more! I can’t find it anywhere.

I did find these:

..from here and they look pretty great, but I can’t see the month view…what if the cover is flimsy and the paper is cheap?

does anyone have any paper planners they love? or are all of you reading this post from your iphone and wondering what “paper” is?

Kristen - Is that the one from Papersource? It looks like it and if it is I had it all last year and LOVED it. I am actually getting another one for 2009. I highly recommend. and I highly recommend that we get together and catch up. I don’t support being strangers with you. I really don’t. There I said it.November 12, 2008 – 12:28 am

rachel thurston - yes! from papersource! I’m glad to have a tried and true opinion. maybe I’ll go for it….and I agree, what’s with the not being friends? we are much better at being friends than this. plus you’re pretty.November 12, 2008 – 1:03 am

Matt’s Blog - It’s time to move on….get an iPhone and watch things fall into place! :) November 12, 2008 – 5:25 am

rachel thurston - 1 for, 1 against. maybe I should create a voting poll….November 12, 2008 – 10:37 am

Kate - rach I have got just the thing for you…. just you wait till we see each other.November 12, 2008 – 5:12 pm

audrey - mmm i am in total agreement!!! good luck with the planner hunt. there’s nothing like the tangible pen and paper… i NEED to scribble. and i like my pens juicy. the pilot precise pens. drier pens seem to inhibit my brain flow… and makes my thoughts and lists look uglier on the page.

even though i have an iphone, i keep a planner and a teeny spiral for jots. i know, strange, redundant, etc., but like i said, i NEED to scribble.

by the way, meant to comment earlier–CONGRATS to you and grant!!!! though i’ve never seen you two together in person, by the chemistry in the photos, you two were MEANT TO BE. may you always have happily-ever-after images.

ps. who will be your wedding photographer?!November 13, 2008 – 8:23 pm

Becky - I have one from good old Wal Mart for $3! I love it though. The cover is harder so it doesn’t bend or fray like the paper ones do. i love it and you can’t beat the price.November 13, 2008 – 10:19 pm

rachel thurston - thanks for all the great suggestions! step one, buy an iphone. step two wait till thanksgiving to see what kate has up her sleeve and then step three is GET ORGANIZED! (this might take a christmas miracle).November 19, 2008 – 11:31 am
