every year I can a shiny new diary and a calendar and every year it barely gets used! why do I do it!? I think I would be better just jotting things down in a note pad or something, I use the calender a bit I guess, I like to see the whole month, having a page for everyday makes me feel a little lost I guess..

D you do this at all?

I really have to time manage this year as I have a lot going on but I am just no good at the diary thing, but I love them!

As I had more children and life got busier yes I used a diary. I only use an electronic one now but I have to use it or I would be lost.

I have a diary at work which I use solely to record professional development activities. Otherwise I use the calendar on my email and phone.

I am lost without my diary. And I am super fussy about my diary. Week per view, vertical format.  They are getting harder to find every year. No idea why. They are the bomb!

I have an electronic one now, but yes, I love it and I'd be lost without it.
I do get nostalgic at this time of year for lovely, leather-bound diaries though.

I would be lost without my diary.. With 3 kids, one of who is into Calisthenics (read lots of dates to remember)as well as she has heaps of medical and Dr's appointments. A dad who had medical issues that I need to attend some not all appointments with him (he can get forgetful or not admit he hasn't understood what is being said) plus things for me. if it isn't in the diary then it doesn't happen..

I so need a wall calender so I can put everything down to be able to look at it at a glance. I just can't get into popping things in my phone, doesn't feel right

It is great seeing it all out there though. My diary is a week to a page and I can see when I need to be where and plan around it. I like it that way.

I would be lost without my agenda.

I have a debden personal size one (cheaper version of the filofax). I have sticky notes, post it notes and sticky tabs. I use the sticky tabs so they stick out on important dates when the agenda is closed so I don't miss them.

I have a month on 2 pages, then monthly tabs with the week on 2 pages, then my notes tab, to do tab, health/fitness , finance and then addresses and business card section. I have a zipper pouch at the front which has paper clips and pens and what not in. Sounds a bit obsessive, but it's not.
