No, this won’t organize your papers.
But, it is a cheap alternative to having an easily outdated PDA. As much as I love my old PalmIIIc, I have to admit, sometimes, a low-tech approach to this stuff is best. So, if you’re as cheap as I am, the free, disposable personal-organizer, PocketMod, might be just right for you. You can use this little baby to make yourself a little, paper organizer that you won’t even mind losing all that much. It’s simple to use and, if you’re afraid the website will mysteriously disappear, you can download the offline standalone version. That way, you can keep it forever and ever and make as many throw-away organizers as you need. Pretty cool, isn’t it?

Well, cool enough for a Friday Fun link, anyway. And, considering the technological horror last Friday, it seemed appropriate!



  1. I must say…this is cool. I just made one. Simple, easy, and lots of variation possible.

    Since I’m a bit of a hacker, I’m wondering how to use the back of the sheet…I’ll let you know.

  2. Double-sided:

    I found a simple solution that works for me.

    I printed generic medium grid and storyboards on one page and printed it. Then I made a more specific, organizer-like format and printed on the reverse of the 1st sheet.

    Fold normally.

    When you need/want more room, simply unfold and refold on the reverse side.

  3. Well, I’m glad this was such a hit! One never knows with the somewhat rarified audience that frequents this site.

  4. “rarified” if not eclectic.
