Out with the old, in with the old

I may be the only person left on the planet who still uses a Palm Pilot - or did until this week.  My husband bought it for Christmas 10 years ago when I had a sales job and needed a way to keep track of my contacts.  This was when my cell phone weighed more than the Palm Pilot and didn't do anything but voice.

And with all the advances in technology, I'm actually going back to the little pocket calendar.  I did customize the cover.

Since I'm closing my business, I really don't need to keep a lot of information at my fingertips. Also I've found since I frequently take my parents and my aunt to doctor's appointments, I need to be able to jot down the next appointment fast and not have to click my way through menus to enter it into an electronic device.  Sometimes the old way is just the simplest.

So my little faithful Palm Pilot goes in the drawer.  That space in my purse is now occupied by my camera so I can capture my photo a day for Project 365.

Actually I'm already liking the ability to see the entire month of January at once or not have to wake up my computer to see where I'm supposed to be.  Normally, I love technology but there are a few things that are better for me the old fashioned way.

Thanks for stopping by today!

  1. I have heard of a palm pilot, but never knew what they were....I am way behind you in technology, teehee.
    I love my papers and pens :)
    Your altered date book is so pretty.

  2. Very cool! Yes, it's amazing what our phones will do now, just about everything. But even today, I found myself writing a phone number down in my address book.

  3. I had to laugh when I read your post! I actually had 3 Palm Pilots all of which I used until they fell apart. I haven't used one in years though. I actually went back to using a planner. Believe it or not. I really like being able to see an entire month with stuff written down on it. Just can't break the habit and have no desire for a Palm Pilot anymore.

    Love your customized cover though.

  4. I agree! I just picked up my cheap, purse-size calendar at Dollar Tree this week, since I'm technologically challenged. ;)
