Electronic devices may peek out of pocketbooks, or perch on lap or desk to offer speedy organization. What’s working for you? In this forum let others know how your organization system works with your favorite technology.

I bought a new iPhone, the 16g in white. The app store in iTunes has wonderful programs for the iPhone, including SplashID and SplashShopper, so I was finally able to retire my PDA. My purse is much lighter now!

On my desktop, I use Entourage in MS Office for Mac. Good program!

I'd love to use my PDA for all this stuff. I used it well before I went back to school. I just can't seem to figure out how to add in homework. Any suggestions would be welcome! I have a Palm Z22.

I used to love my pda for my organizational tools and stuff, but my battery is so old that i hardly hold a charge then i end up losing it all anyway. I have found, anyway, that the only thing that works for me is a good old list on paper, BUT if someone has a program for the PC that might help or can send me to a website or something that would be great.

Have you looked at facebook's calendar? It's an application called 30 boxes. Once you fill in dates and times, you can have it email you reminders.

Ducky: are you having trouble finding time to DO homework? Or do you need help knowing when things are due? I think just scheduling in a specific homework time and making it non-negotiable would be the only way for me...and entering in due dates (with the alarm set!) would help me with the other. Hope this helps...

The problem is quickly entering homework assignments at the end of class as I'm headed out the door to the next one.

With my paper planner, I just have it out on the table, ready to write in throughout the class. With the PDA proffessors prefer me to not have it out. So, I end up with a bunch of sticky notes that I forget to enter in later, or I've written the assignment who knows where....and I can't find it to enter into the PDA.

Of course, now I can't find my PDA.....dangit!

This is an amazing site!! It has a great calendar you can personalize, shopping lists you can text or email to people or your phone. Journal to keep people updated. Photo album to share the memories.

It's wonderful!

Ducky this is off topic but I giggle when I see your avatar. I flash to all the antics of Donald Duck.

LOL, I really relate to Donald's character. He's going along smoothly then everything seems to blow up in his face, then he blows his top. :lol:
