DodoPadler of the Day: Laurie

Hallooo dear DodoPadlers!  Miss Peabody here!

We have a special treat today here on Miss Peabody Writes!  DodoPadler Laurie is an American living in Scotland with her family.  Laurie uses a Dodo Wall Acad-Pad to keep her family informed of everyone’s comings and goings throughout the week.  She was happy to share some details with me of how she uses her Wall Acad-Pad along with the Save The Day reminder stickers.  Here is what she has to say about her Dodo Pad:

Laurie's Wall Acad-Pad

“I hang my Dodo Wall Acad-Pad on the messageboard in the kitchen so that everyone can see it.  I’ve included a couple of photos of a recent week as an example.

I use the top page for To-Do lists, and this particular week my son added his representation of a Dodo, complete with stickers for the mouth and hats on his head!

Here is a close-up of the weekly grid so you can see how I use it:

Weekly grid

You can see that I use the first column in the grid as Today, which is for things like holidays, trash collection vs recycling collection day, or on Monday of this week our house guests were leaving that day.  Then each person in the household has his or her own column, so I can see who is doing what and when all week.  My kids love the Dodo stickers because they are cute and because they allow them to know what’s going on since they can’t read yet.  I like that this system allows them to be a part of planning the week for the whole family and encourages organization from an early age.

In the left margin I write the dinner menus for the week so that I can plan my shopping and I never have that awful feeling of looking into the fridge at 5:30 pm wondering what to make for dinner!

I also use the Dodo Pad diary A5 Filofax insert in my Filofax, which is wonderful for adding fun to my day.  In it I use the grid to block out different categories of tasks for each day: Appointments, Household (where I write my cleaning schedule), Homeschool, Work, Personal (where I record daily exercise and other goals).

I love Dodo Pad diaries because they are so fun and engaging and, they are different every single week of the year.  They are proof that time management doesn’t have to be boring!”

Many thanks Laurie! It is so fascinating to see how different people use their Dodo Pads in different ways – I think the dinner menu on the left hand side is pure, but simple genius – I shall be telling cook to do the same here at Dodo Towers!

Would you like your Dodo Pad to be featured here on Miss Peabody Writes?  Please do tell us how you use your Dodo Pad diary, send us photos of your diary doodles, or tell us a story about your Dodo Pad.  We love to hear from you!  If you would like to share something with us, please post a comment!

I hope to hear from you soon!

Toodle-oo for now,

Miss P

2010/11 Acad-Pad and 2011 Dodo Pad Filofax-compatible diary inserts!

2011 Dodo Pad and 2010/11 Acad-Pad Filofax-compatible diary inserts!

Hallooo dear Dodopadlers!  Miss Peabody here!

I am dreadfully excited about the new range of 2010/11 Acad-Pad and 2011 Dodo Pad diary inserts for Filofax (and other compatible) organisers!  Now you can have it all together: the personal organiser you rely on to keep you sorted and the wit and fun of your beloved Dodo Pad diary.

I am gleefully using my A5 Filofax-compatible 2010 Dodo Pad diary insert for the very first time this year.  It’s an absolute joy to have my Dodo Pad diary insert and all the rest of my notes and papers safely tucked into my organiser.  With everything I have to keep up on, my Dodo Pad-Filofax combination is indodispensible! You know, it was little ole me who gently nudged his lordship last year in the hope of developing these insert refills – and he listened!

There are still a few 2010 A5 diary inserts left and they’re to be had for an absolute bargain if you click here and buy through Lord Dodo’s Ebay shop. Make him an offer – but be quick – there are not many left!

2011 Dodo Pad diary insert for the A5 Filofax organiser

This year, due to popular demand, the 2010/11 Acad-Pad and 2011 Dodo Pad diaries are now also available to fit the Personal size Filofax organisers!  This portable size is very handy for people on the go and the familiar Dodo Pad weekly grid will keep you organised wherever you are.

All the 2010/11 Acad-Pad diaries, including the Filofax-compatible refill, are available now!  Acad-Pads sell out every year you know, so I suggest you hurry to get yours to avoid disappointment.  This diary insert will surely be a powerful organisational tool for any student, teacher or anyone relying on the academic year.  It will keep you on track with your studies, lesson plans and busy social life and help you keep your sense of humour along the way.

2010/11 Acad-Pad diary insert for personal size Filofax organiser

The 2011 Dodo Pad diary inserts in both the Personal size and A5 size will be available very soon.  If you wish, you can pre-order yours now so you don’t miss out!

The Filofax-compatible diary inserts are identical in content to the Dodo Pad and Acad-Pad diaries, with some slight re-arrangement of page elements to accommodate the different page shape and size.  Take a peek inside the new diaries now to get a preview of Lord Dodo‘s clever wit and fanciful artwork.  You may be inspired to produce your own doodle masterpiece on your Dodo Pad pages!

As you well know, I am wedded to my Dodo Pad/Filofax combination.  Do you dear readers use and love a Filofax or similar organiser?  If so, do you use it for work, or play, or both? Do post a comment and tell us about it!

Toodle-oo for now!
