2016 Planners For An Organized New Year
Sometimes I feel this need to not indulge the retail world’s over-zealous, in-too-much-advance-of approach to selling goods. Like, can’t we ever just buy things when we need them, instead of four months before? It isn’t as if we’re going to sea and won’t spot a shore (or a store) for who knows how long so we better stock up and get ready!
Only, sometimes this defiance backfires on me. Like this year, when I went to buy myself a 2015 planner during the last couple weeks of December, 2014 and found the shelves picked dry (everyone out to sea, penciling in their boat-steering shifts, no doubt). No matter, I figured. They’ll have to restock come January 1. I mean, then it’ll actually be 2015!
On January 1, the selections were fewer. Online and in stores. Sold out messages started haunting my dreams–my planner is everything to me, guys.
In the end I found one that’s done the job respectably, but the learning has been clear: my on-time was retail-Late with a capital L.
Well, not this time.
Not this year.
