April 15, 2024

Today’s episode features a planner peace submission that was so intriguing that it warranted an entire episode! Our listener Erin has a lot on her plate (full time job, 2 kids, volunteer work, caring for relatives, and more!) — and she has put together and incredibly comprehensive system that brings her to a current state of Planner Peace! Rather than a stack, she’s combined digital and physical elements from her favorite tools to create a streamlined system.

Products Discussed:

1) The Remarkable2 Tablet

2) Day Designer Monthly

3) Organize 365 Sunday Basket

4) Artful Agenda (she syncs with Google Calendar):

5) Trello

6) MaskeLife

7) Clean Mama

    LOVED hearing about use of the R2 – I got one as a birthday gift in Feb b/c I had an ever growing collection of the physical “notebook of everything” for work/volunteer/personal stuff, but it’s so helpful to be able to categorize those notes rather than all mixed in from chronological use and keep them available on hand when I couldn’t cart around all of my past physical notebooks.

    I haven’t nailed the template thing yet so I’ll have to look into how different templates could be helpful for different types of meetings and planning. Would love to hear from your readers on what templates they use and for what.

    I Love Love Love my remarkable2! I used it all the time and have a great planner template that I use, as well as notes and reading webpages without distraction. I have the keyboard, but really don’t use it too much.

      Susan, would love to know where you found your planner template/where you look for good templates! I feel like I’m missing out on a couple of useful aspects of my r2!
