I bought my new day planner.
I use an academic calendar, one that follows the school year, usually July-July. Yesterday, I spent a good chunk of time going through last year's calendar and transferring info over. Phone numbers, birthdays, anniversaries, that sort of thing.
Then, I safely tucked away my old planner in my filing cabinet with those of years past. Why do I keep them? They're little slices of history. I love going through old planners to see what the family was doing during a certain time period. Some days are so full of activities that info spilled out of the square. Doctors appointment, flight times, band concerts, meeting a friend for lunch, birthdays, trumpet lessons... Those planners are almost like little pictures into my kids' pasts--and one day I know I'll be really glad I kept them.
Do you use a day planner? Do you keep them, too?
