6. Just the Right Size
There are perfect situations for desk calendars, but carrying around a binder or full-size calendar while you go about your day probably isn’t ideal. Jalbert explained that recently smaller planners have been trendy. “Planner sizes have shifted from the larger three-ring binder varieties to sleeker pocket-sized books,” Jalbert said.
7. Paper Products
Technology can enhance calendars and planners, but that doesn’t mean paper products will disappear anytime soon in this category. “Technology is wonderful, but we believe there is room for both paper and electronic calendars,” Jalbert said. “More and more people are coming back to paper planners as a companion or replacement for electronic calendars. Our quality planners have quite a loyal following with orders that return year-after-year. What’s not to love? They are crash-proof, a signal or battery is not needed to quickly flip through our pages and it is so easy to record information quickly on the go.”
Jalbert also explained that using a paper planner might actually be better for you in the long run. “Studies have also shown that the act of handwriting information improves memory and cognitive function—another great reason to flip.”
