Day planners are a basic organizational tool for keeping track of appointments, commitments, deadlines and goals. Many people have switched to using electronic to-do lists, but paper-based planners remain very popular. If you use a three-ring binder-style planner you can make your own pages and save money on refills. You can also customize your daily sheets to suit your needs.
Things You'll Need
