What's Your Calendar Organization Style?

Pin it button big

There was a day when we all carried some type of paper planner and referred to them religiously. Then there was the palm pilot, remember that? Now, there are so many ways to keep organized I have a hard time compiling my various methods into one master calendar! My resolution for 2011: simplify my calendar with a master organizing method...

The only question is which style of calendar should I commit to? There are so many options:

1. Calendar as art, just to keep track of the date.
2. iPhone or blackberry calendar
3. Desk paper calendar to write long notes on and every detail of the day
4. Day Planner that you carry with you and refill every year

Since I'm right-brained I tend to gravitate towards color and large visual cues scattered about my workspace. My husband, the left-brained, has everything in a calendar on his iPhone and constantly sends me invite requests, which I never respond to further complicating our organizational differences.

How do you get your dates in a row these days? Do you have any plans to redefine your organizational calendar style in 2011?
