The last few years I used electronic planning for my schedule and to-dos. I still keep track of some major tasks that way, but this year I've returned to good ol' paper planning. Actually, it's more like a planner, journal, and scrapbook condensed into one book. (I mean, who in the world has time to keep one of each?) When I want to record something quickly, I stick on a particular color or pattern of tape across a time slot to mean something (dark green for shopping, purple for art-related tasks, fork and spoon tape for meals, etc.). Sometimes I have time for more than just sticking on tape and I get fancier with it. I have tons of stickers on hand for my art student kids anyway so some of those get incorporated too. It's totally colorful and juvenile. I love it.
