    I love your desk!
    And I love that I´m not the only one with the same neurosis. See, what helped me is that I penned down what I truly need and want. All binders aside, what is the function. What do I need for a planner / calendar / organizer. See, I have certain restrictions as to what to carry and the A5 Balmoral does weigh a small nation. I also often wished that I wanted the calendar part detachable from the binder, for easier portability and easier reference. Now… I just might have the perfection when it comes to this system. I have a separate A5 calendar with a day/page and I LOVE IT! It´s spacious, paper is quite nice and thin which makes it very portable. I also keep my A5 Balmoral going as a home plan, budgets, nannies, contacts, projects, shopping lists, cleaning lists etc. It´s very easy to reference now with two planners that are separate from each other. Then I have a one insanely tiny calendar that travels in my wallet, if I go grocery shopping or whatnot. If a telephone rings and I need to know somethin

    … something happened. Annyhoo… continuing
    or jot down something, I have the tiny one in my wallet to reach to.
    Long story short- I found out what I needed by writing it all down in a sense ” in a perfect world “. We all have our perfect worlds and this system happens to be so very good for me. What tickles your fancy?
    And yeah, that´s beyond vote.
    Besides, you know what is best for you.

    @wrs: very good points & a very good question. perhaps this weekend i will jot down a lit of my “deal breaker” needs in a planner and see what i come up with. and, as you said, it may end up being 2 separate entities…one that stays home & one that comes with. at least it’s a fun thing to figure out ; )
