While I definitely love my gadgets, when it comes to calendars, I still prefer paper. There’s something about being able to see everything in my own handwriting, laid out in front of me all at once. It goes a long way toward keeping me organized, especially when it comes to my blog.
This year, I’m continuing my practice of using a desk calendar for my blog’s editorial schedule. I opted for the 2014 calendar from House of Doolittle pictured above. It’s 18 1/2″ x 13″ and includes large boxes for planning and a note section on the side. It’s one of quite a few calendars and planners available on Shoplet.com, and as I’ve worked to get my blog organized for the year, it’s been a huge help.
I typically use my Google calendar to keep my family organized, but the more I use the large desk calendars, the more inclined I am to take one and mount it to our bulletin board. I’ll still have my digital calendar when I’m on the go, but it might help to have a walls-eye-view of our month to keep us on our toes. (I’ll keep you posted on that.)
In addition to the desk calendar, I also picked up the House of Doolittle Weekly Business Planner. It allows you to view your week all at once and keep track of business expenses. Like the desk calendar (and all other House of Doolittle products), it’s printed using 100% recycled paper with 100% post-consumer fiber, and soy ink. It sells for $16.72 and the desk calendar is just $8.80.
You can grab both calendars and a ton of other great office and organizational supplies online at Shoplet.com. Stop by and see how they can help you stay on track. If you find something you like, be sure to pop by and tell me a bit about it.
