I know I am not alone in my love of office supplies - pens, markers, sticky notes and the lot. Planning and plotting our lessons, meetings, conferences and life in general is more fun if you have a snazzy organizer to do it with.
Of course there are the digital planners and Google calendars with all the bells and whistles. I use those. There is something about the act of writing it down and jotting notes and looking at it on paper that makes the paper planner a helpful, soothing option for me in addition to the digital options.
I have been known to buy the planner and use it for only three or four months before abandoning it.
Because I am planning a conference things are a bit more complicated now. I hope this new toy will help me keep it together.
