Merlin Mann at 43 Folders popularized the idea of the “Hister PDA,” the idea of using plain old paper instead of a Palm or Blackberry to track your appointments and todos. PagePacker makes it easy to create your own paper-based organization system.
Here’s how it works: You choose 8 pages from a catalog of 84 charts, calendars, and graphs. For example, you might choose a monthly calendar, four weekly calendars, a todo list, and two sheets of graph paper. PagePacker will print these 8 “mini” pages on one sheet of Letter size (or A4) paper, arranged so you can fold it and put it in your pocket. (See the screenshot below for more information.)
This could be a handy way to get organized (was that one of your New Year’s Resolutions?) and it doesn’t cost as much as a PDA.
