Discbound Planners and Notebooks.

Don't listen to Bumble Bee, the caps are what you want; get the one with the cap.
Also these are the fat boys, they are 1.0 mm, not 0.7mm.

These feel so good in the hand but they have high dry times; just not worth it.

I use these for drawing lines. Dry times are not bad, but there is a dry time.

Thank you for sharing.

I love the way people like you all stay so organized. I have struggled with organization all my life. I have tried everything from cheap planners to Franklin (expensive), with little success. I eventually converted my Franklin planner to keep flight notes and checklists from my general aviation days. The best I can do now is using Google Calendar, Google Keep (Please keep the flames to a minimum), and good old steno pads for note taking (From which I transcribe the important bits later). Thank you for sharing so much excellent advice. You both ROCK!!

Interesting topic

I enjoyed this like Trey. I have note-taking down at work but realized (again) with this episode, like Trey that notes&planning for my personal life is lacking. I like the idea of using a planner for both the planning and note-taking, and may try that.
