What do women use to stay organized on the move ?

I still use an old day runner but I see women running around with blackberries .
Isnt that primarily a phone ? isnt it expensive? I am afraid to ask the young kids to explain it , they will laugh at me .
I really am tired of lugging this notebook around but somtimes I have a list for a project Or at the store I want to remember the ingredients to a recipe .
KWIM?

  • I still like my dayrunner. Call me old-fashioned, but it doesn't run out of battery power!

    I am old school, though...I refuse to get a blackberry or iPhone or the like, and I do not text.

  • I use my Iphone. I no longer have to keep up with three different emails and 2 different calendars. I can access everything at once.

  • My husband has an iphone and uses it as his arganizer. He has everything in it. I don't think he would have it if it wasn't a company phone. Before that he had a Blackberry and a Palm. I've inherited his old Palm but don't use it. I'm a fan of pen and paper and also still have an old fashioned Day Runner.

  • I still use a day planner. I say use what works and what you can afford. I'd rather spend $10 on a day planner yearly than $50 a month for a blackberry and internet when I have internet at home. Maybe I'm still living in the 80's.
