What to Love about the Planner Pad
Even in the digital electronic age we are in, there’s still a lot of love for a paper planner. There’s especially a lot to love about the planner pad. Here’s what’s most valuable about this paper planner.
Consolidate your list and your planner
It’s easy to scribble notes on random pieces of paper. The planner pad has a slot for this! You create lists in categories at the top of the planner pad. These lists keep tasks, ideas, websites and even cat food purchases easy to find. Creating these lists makes it easier for you to write stuff down, do your work, and be productive.
Month and week at a glance features
It’s great to view both the month and week at a glance as you are recording dates. Having these two perspectives helps you prioritize and keep accountable. Recording in both calendars insures your mindfulness of activities and actions.
Easy to carry
It’s easy to carry your phone and your planner pad. Since there are many different sizes and configurations, you can choose what works best for you.
Use it as a planning tool
I am a big fan of GTD and the weekly planning time. The planner pad is perfect for this type of processing. The center section in the week at a glance section helps you consolidate your tasks, errands and projects by helping you commit to a time to do this work.
Available as an app
So you may be a digital person and love planner pad too! It’s now available as an app. I recommend using it on a tablet to view and add information easily.

I absolutely adore my planner. People tell me all the time that they don’t like having to carry something like that around, and I can understand that, but to me it is small and slips easily into my purse. I love having my calendar and “to do” on facing pages. Also, since I often schedule appointments on my phone, I like not having to toggle between screens.
I just googled this and saw that there is an app available! How cool is that? I will check this planner out. I’m using the Happy Planner this year. So we will see how it goes!
@Autumn – It’s a great tool too!
@Seana – I have just recently converted to planner pad. It’s a transition but well worth it!
