Weekdate plannerI embrace paper for my to do list while choosing online calendaring. But these three paper calendars from Lifehack.org tempt me towards entirely analog planning. I can’t decide which one looks most fun and useful.

Perhaps the WeekDate, which uses an innovative design to handle recurring events, would suit:

One of the common drawbacks of using a paper calendar is having to write recurring events repeatedly, and then, of course, you have the hassle of erasing and updating all of them when something changes. One calendar has changed all of that. WeekDate is one of the most creative things I have seen in a while. You write in all of your monthly recurring appointments, all of your weekly recurring appointments, and then all of your specific day appointments on different folded-in “flaps” of the calendar itself, so that you can view them all at once and have no need to rewrite things.

Closed, the Weekdate planner measures 9.5″ by 4″, a bit smaller than a piece of office paper folded lengthwise in half. You can fit one in your handbag or man bag and choose from a variety of cover designs.

What’s your calendaring solution? Paper or electronic?

  4. Weekdate looks mighty tasty. I might have to try one of these. Currently using a Moleskine small weekly pocket. But it’d be great to have recurrings listed just once.

    And “Man Bag”. heh. That’s what my boys call my my Tom Bihn Medium Cafe Bag.

    Google Calendar – I’ve been off paper since 1989, when my boss always was asking my admin where I was. It’s the only way to go when others are dependent upon you.

    I use Yahoo and Google calendars because you can never have too much of a good thing!!!

  8. Excellent; sent my wife the link to Weekdate and she bought one; she’s been searching for a new portable calendar for the last few weeks. Now I can try before I buy!

  9. I moved back to 30 Boxes from Google Calendar. 30 Boxes is much more reliable (reminders) and dynamic and I don’t want to use too many Google services.
    If only 30 Boxes would remember the selected style sheet…
