Synchronize Your Holiday Planning(NAPSI)-Preparing for the holiday season can be a delightful task if you plan ahead. Between holiday parties, card mailings, kids' recitals, shopping for gifts, family gatherings and planning that perfect holiday meal, organization is key.
Forget the sticky notes and to-do lists posted all over the fridge and thrown into pockets and purses on your way out the door. More people are turning to handheld devices or PDAs to remember things for them. A PDA is a great place to keep all the little (and big) things in your life together. Many say the best part is that it does most of the work for you. All you have to do is fill in the blanks. Suddenly it's smooth sailing with everything in one place.
A PDA can make a perfect stocking stuffer. It weighs less than many traditional paper planners and holds years of appointments, thousands of addresses, to-do lists, and a Note Pad. No need to worry if you forget to charge the battery and it runs out; all the information is safe-nothing is lost.
Do you remember a time when you forgot to buy a gift or send a card to a friend or relative? With a PDA, your holiday to-do list, schedule and contacts can travel with you. Just organize your contacts using the handheld and create a category for those who receive holiday cards.
For the avid entertainer,
