D*I*Y Planner Hipster PDA Edition. Welcome to the D*I*Y Planner Hipster PDA Edition 3.0, a series of approximately one hundred free productivity forms designed for printing onto index cards (a.k.a., the Hipster PDA). Designed especially for the D*I*Y Planner project by Douglas Johnston, the package includes a wide array of cards covering life management, project planning, calendars, notetaking, business development, and creative uses like writing, storyboards, mind mapping, and photography. These are a subset of our regular D*I*Y Planner forms, completely re-designed for the smaller size, and may be used in conjunction with a full-sized planner, alongside a notebook like a Moleskine, or as a stand-alone system.

[edit] Benefits There are a number of benefits to a Hipster PDA over a digital PDA: Cards can be arbitrarily resequenced, given away, and writing by hand is freeform and unrestricted Card size encourages concise notes Can be put into a pocket Won't run out of batteries More durable: won't be destroyed by water, coffee, dropping on floor, etc. The Hipster is also cheaper and smaller than the traditional planner, making it easier to carry and easier to keep stocked. A Hipster even has geek value: when everyone whips out their digital PDA, watch what happens when you whip out your Hipster PDA... [edit] Ingredients and Assembly How to assemble it: Clip the cards together If you use a larger size clip (medium), then you can clip a pen to the Hipster.
