For the last several years I’ve kept my schedule and all appointments on my cell phone. This year I’m loving the idea of using a paper agenda/calendar again. There’s something about not having my phone, constantly beeping reminders, that’s very appealing to me… as I try to simplify my routines.
The month & week-at-a-view, Scene Stealer Desk Diary from Henri Bendel includes a section for telephone numbers, travel information and a world map. I love their classic brown and white stripe. A bit too big for carrying in a purse but it would look chic on your desk or counter.
This kate spade new york agenda spans 17 months, has an elastic closure, internal pockets and monthly tabs with witty comments.
“surround yourself with the things you love. discard the rest” I wholeheartedly agree!
The Trunks & Locks small ring agenda from Louis Vuitton is small enough to carry in your purse and has slots to hold up to 12 credit cards. It will hold a refillable calendar, address book and notepad. These covers are very sturdy and last for years. I love the detail of the vintage trunk on the front of this one.
The pocket sized agenda from Anne Taintor has a zippered pouch, month-at-a-glance, week-at-a-glance, address pages and a section for notes. How they pack all that into this tiny package, I don’t know, but it sounds pretty handy. Her quotes are described as sassy…probably true.
I haven’t used this Agenda since 2010. Its fun to read back through what I did that year. I certainly don’t have that info stored in my Iphone for 2011, 2012 and 2013. I’m ordering a 2014 insert today.
Do you use a high tech calendar or a paper one?
I wonder if going back to paper and pen will save me time or not.
