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

2010-2011 Acad-Pads Are Here! Save 15%!

Read further to save 15% now!

Hallooo dear Dodopadlers!  Miss Peabody here, with some very exciting news indeed!  I have so much to tell you about new products, discount codes and new ways to follow Lord Dodo in cyberspace.  Do read on!

The new, updated (and wonderfully-coloured, in my humble opinion) 2010-2011 Acad-Pads are now available!  These sanity-saving diaries and wall pad calendars have been loved for years by students, teachers, professors, families, and anyone on an academic-year schedule.  And as if that news weren’t exciting enough, now there is an entirely new form of Acad-Pad diary available!

Due to the pleas of those Acad-Pad users who are also enamoured with their Filofax personal organisers, this year for the first time ever Lord Dodo has created an Acad-Pad diary insert for your Personal size Filofax! Now you can have the fun, wit and delightful organisation of the Acad-Pad clipped into your Filofax binder!  I say, what will Lord Dodo think of next?

2010-2011 Acad-Pads are now available in a dazzling array of sizes and formats: the original Desk diary, the very visible Wall Pad, the Mini size diary for extreme portability, and now in the Personal size Filofax-compatible format.

Now you are spoiled for choice of sizes and formats of Acad-Pads, you’ll have no excuse not to be organised.  That is, unless you wait too long and miss out!  Acad-Pads sell out each year so don’t hesitate!  Miss Davinia Dalrymple (our Mistress of Stock Control here at Dodo Towers) urges you to avoid disappointment and get yours now.

Acad-Pad interior

The interior of the Acad-Pad has the same format as the Dodo Pad diary that we know and love so well.  The five columns per day are perfect for tracking assignments, noting deadlines and due-dates, managing your to-dos and keeping up with your lively social scene.  Opposite each week’s schedule is a page full of mirth, clever art, and plenty of room for your own notes (or doodles during boring lectures or down-time).

Now, also for the first time, you can peek inside this year’s Acad-Pad and Dodo Pad diaries, click here to search inside and preview the pages!

Each Acad-Pad is pre-printed with holidays (to help you plan those holiday breaks) and contains ever-so-useful pre-planning calendars and pages to note important data.  The Acad-Pad is your perfect companion to guide you through your academic year in sanity-saving style.

The ideal addition to your Acad-Pad or Dodo Pad desk diary is the new, “small but perfectly formed” A5 size Slimline Dodo Address Book which tucks tidily into the pocket in the back of your desk diary.  It keeps your contacts close at hand, and eliminates the inconvenience of re-copying your addresses year to year.  Lord Dodo’s sheer genius shines again!

Slimline Dodo Address Book

So many exciting new products!  I just love it when new Dodo Produce hatches.

Indodispensible for adding visibility to important dates and events in your Acad-Pad, Dodo Pad (or indeed any diary) are the Save The Day Stickers.  These colorful icons will draw your eye to those significant events when paging through your diary.

Save the Day stickers

And from now until midnight (UK time) on 30th April, you dear readers of my blog can get 15% off your purchase of ₤15.00 or more on Acad-Pads, the Dodo Slimline Address Book, and Dodo Organiser Stickers!  Just enter the code 10MP at checkout.  This cannot be combined with any other offer, and is only for a very limited time so do act quickly!

Now there are several ways to stay informed and find the latest happenings here at Dodo Towers.  You can follow Lord Dodo on Twitter, and become a fan on his Facebook page.  How terribly exciting!  I’ve also heard that he occassionally even ‘chats’ to Facebook fans – but this is a rare and very special occurence – so you have to be there to stand a chance.

Well my dear friends, I’m afraid I’m all in a tizzy now.  New products!  Dodelightful discounts! Lord Dodo in cyberspace!  It’s all so grand!  I must go and put my feet up.

Toodle-oo for now,

Miss P
