Free, print n’ make personal organizing tools

I don’t know about you, but every new year, I come out of the gate with a new commitment to be more organized and work-efficient in my never-ending, nerfarious plans to take over the world. In searching out new organizing tools, I found this line-up of eight print, fold, make paper tools at Unplggd. I’ve been using the Hipster PDA version of the D*I*Y Planner (seen above) for years and still swear by it. I’ve also used the PocketMod and the printable graph paper.

And while we’re on the subject, my fave electronic organizing tool for ’08 was Evernote. I LOVE this app!

    Also check out GTDTiddlyWiki Plus @

    It’s a customized TiddlyWiki that’s been altered to help with personal organization, and prints out Hipster PDA format sheets.

    I used GTDTiddlyWiki for several years and loved it; even wrote about it in MAKE Volume 05 (page 135). Now I’m using OmniFocus (on both Macs and my iPhone) and totally digging that.

    There used to be a program for customizable graph paper. Nowadays those sorts all cost a fair amount of money.
