As previously stated, I AM OCD ABOUT ORGANIZATION. I have color-coded files, clips denoting deadlines, color-appropriate computer calendars, labels on everything, etc, etc... I LOVE my office products, I love my organization. Speaking of which, I look forward to each December for a multitude of reasons--one of which is buying my sparkling new planner for the upcoming 12-month period.
Lo, I couldn't find exactly what I wanted on the shelves of my local office superstore, so I stooped to splurge on a $4 Walmart version of what I was after. I was less than thrilled with my cheapy rendition, and the planning fairies intervened when I splattered some sushi-dedicated soy sauce on the formerly-pristine pages of Ms. $4 wonder. Therefore, I recognized this as my opportunity to invest in a better version of what I wanted (and thanked my lucky stars that the $4 version is what met its defeat in my portfolio bag), and stumbled across the highly-acclaimed Laurel Denise yearly planner.

Its kraft paper cover and super snazzy, crisp pages meet my every planning need. I am very pleased. And ready to transfer all those plans from the pages of the cheapy to the newbie.
Well, enjoy your afternoon... you know what I'll be doing for the rest o' mine!
