I don’t think I will ever find either a datebook or a handbag I like *sigh*

I'm beginning to think there are two things in life I just may never get right. "Just two?" you say. Well no but two that constantly nibble at me. They are in no particular order...calendars/planners and handbags (or personal totement devices).

As for planners/diaries, I tried Moleskine planners. I love the form factor and hate the paper, pencil smears badly on their paper. I've been using a Quo Vadis academic year diary since August, love the paper but not so nutz about the size. I wish Clairefontaine made datebooks in some format...their paper is the best, love the french-ruled notebooks.

What planner do you use?

The handbag thing is a similar issue. Seems I can never find a comfortable to carry bag that holds what I want it to hold. I hate huge bags, I've carried one for years. I need to find a comfortable and spiffy backpack bag that isn't huge but holds what I need...that would be cool. I have this great Ameribag Backpack that will hold a computer but basically only that. Why they don't make a backpack as usable as their handbags is beyond me. *sigh* Gritch gritch gritch.

I have the exact same problem...I got the planner figured out (I went digital) but the bag thing--drives me nuts. Big bags hurt the shoulders or make one look like a third grader, and the small bags don't hold enough. If you find one that actually works, please please please let us all know.

And BTW, I know you've been asking for this info from me for about a year and half, since we met in London. I've left you my blog link, and I'll see you in Bielefeld!

I've tried digital but haven't been successful with them...them being Palms. If you have another flavor that you like let me know. I'm open to most anything.
