My new organizer « Corrie Haffly. My history of organizer systems in bulleted list format: Early college years: Cheap DayRunner vinyl organizer with calendar refill and address bookLater college years: Leather DayTimer organizer that weighed about 50 lbs. with binder-ring style calendar, addresses, notepaper, etc., slots for ID and credit cards, zipper pocket, notepad, blah blah blah…Briefly: Hand-me-down Palm Pilot from my sister.

My new organizer « Corrie Haffly

Spent hours entering stuff into it, then stopped using it because the batteries got used up so quickly.Full-time employment years: Yellow legal notepad with tiny printed to-do items listed one after another, crossed off as completedInitial self-employed years: Cheap calendar notebook with preprinted monthly sheets, weekly spreads, and pages in between each month for tracking expenses (I used it for tracking invoices), notes, etc. Spiral-bound and custom photo and title/text printed on the cover. Pages 1-3: A long list of books I want to read. Handy whenever I went to the library. Write Damn Now: Handmade moleskine: a GTD notebook for creative writers. Make Your Own Moleskine-Like-Notebook. What we'll make: Your very own Moleskine-like-notebook/journal/sketchbook. The one we'll be making is 3.5 x 5.5 x .5 inches.

I use this size because it fits nicely into my back or front pants pocket. Strangely enough it is also the same size as the Moleskine notebook. For the pages we'll be using 20# bond paper (the same paper you use in your copier and inkjet printer). Don't be put off by the many steps involved. This particular notebook was developed over many years of feeble attempts to organize my thoughts, appointments and small sketches. I hope you enjoy making and using them as much as I have.

Table of Contents: Page 1. Materials Needed: 24 sheets of paper 8.5 x 11 inches (use 20# bond at first then you can try other types of paper) One 8.5 x 11 inch sheet of a "special" paper . Tools Needed: A bookbinders needle . Step 1. Deadline: Home. PingMe - What *Should* You Be Doing? 43 Folders. Getting Sandy in my Face. For quite a while now, Tasks Jr has been my task management tool of choice.

Getting Sandy in my Face

I switched to it from my own Tinderbox-based system after I decided that having access to my list from any 'net-connected system was important to me. But now I've switched again. Over time, the aesthetics of Tasks Jr's design, its limitations (which are resolved by the more advanced versions, I must admit), and the fact that a recent MySQL/PHP update at my web host caused problems made me think about finding another solution. So I've begun the great migration to Values of n's Sandy. Its integration with Twitter and the almost magical email-based interface are icing on the cake, beyond what Tasks Jr offered. The aphorism "out of sight, out of mind" could have been created with me in mind. But thanks to a comment here on 43Folders, I discovered Fluid. You can use Fluid with any web application of course, and there's a Fluid Icons group on Flickr where you can get images to use with the app.
