Time is your most precious resource. So, it makes sense to plan your daily tasks to get the most out of your time. Well kept personal organizers, planners and accessories can be just what you need to organize your life. By using a day planner or organizer to structure your day, you can more efficiently use your time and fit in more of the activities you enjoy. Here are five of the more essential features of personal organizers and how they can help you take control of each day.

Personal Organizer Essentials:

  1. Durable exterior: Since you'll be taking your personal organizer virtually everywhere, it'll be exposed to the elements. Protect the valuable information that you've recorded in you planner by choosing a personal organizer with a durable, zip-closed cover. Preferably, you can choose a water-resistant material, like leather or vinyl.

  2. Section for blank notes: You may want a place to brainstorm ideas, make plans or do simple calculations. A personal organizer with a small blank notepad is a great place to write miscellaneous notes.

  3. Useful planning pages: Personal organizers have pretty standard day planning pages, but some have useful to-do sections and reminder boxes on each page. Depending on your planning style, you may find a few of them useful, so check out several styles of refill pages before you choose a personal organizer.

  4. Included software: Software doesn't help much when you're on the go with an analog organizer. But some personal organizers include a CD-ROM with programs that can teach you to get the most out of your organizer features. If you want to learn a few tips and tricks, customized for specific organizers, included software can be a bonus.
