  5. Hi Jennifer, I enjoyed your video on setting up for 2014. I have been using a calendar on my computer for awhile now, but it does not seem adequate. I am trying to find a good balance between digital and handwritten. Do you use any kind of digital calendar (phone or computer) or do you strictly use a Filofax?
