The Hipster PDA is a do-it-yourself organizer that involves 3x5" index cards and any sort of pageholder you want to use. (This could be a binder clip, a hair band, or a carabiner!) The Hipster PDA hit the blogosphere a few years ago and has spawned a whole series of articles and websites that offer tips, templates, and how-tos.
The benefits of the Hipster PDA are numerous:
1. It's cheap (index cards are exceptionally inexpensive).
2. You don't have to worry about your PDA crashing or losing battery power.
3. It is more portable than a regular paper planner.

I'm an old-fashioned, pen and paper sort of gal, and one of the only people I know who doesn't have a PDA. But I'm also sick of carrying around clunky date planners, so I love the idea of something that's smaller and more portable. Thanks for the advice!
