  1. I would like information about The Plannet Pad. Is it available for 2019 yet, where do I order it from and how much is the cost? Do they ship to Canada ?

  2. Hi, Cathie. The link for Planner Pad is above ( They do ship to Canada, right now they have start dates of July 2018, October 2018 and January 2019 and the price is dependent on the size you get. (You can see the prices on their website.)

    Thanks for listening to the podcast!

  3. Thank you for the link and testimonials about Right now I keep all my appointments (including appointments to listen to this podcast) on my Google calendar. Since I shift my schedule around a lot, I find that tracking events digitally works best for me. But I am intrigued by the Planner Pads. Helping me to categorize and prioritize tasks might be helpful. I have a system in place which I learned from Karen Kingston, and it is working for me. I always like to tweak different systems to get them to work for me. I have placed an event on my calendar for mid-November to investigate whether buying a Planner Pad is in the cards for me.
