Hipster Envelope

A simple cover for your HipsterPDA based upon the cover provided in the D*I*Y Planner Hipster PDA Edition.

Paper size: 
Index Card (3 x 5)
Usage advice: 

This came to me after seeing what some really creative people came up with as cases for their HipsterPDA's. Though cases break the basic philosophy of the Hipster PDA, as stated on the Hipster PDA site as "3. There is no step 3".

I know that forms also break the basic philosophy. But I am of the opinion that a form gives structure and in many cases help the data gathering process, so a simple cover or case was needed.

I think this one is simple, can be produced inexpensively, requires no clips or rubber bands or other hardware, and if you already use the D*I*Y forms you have all the skill need to construct one your self.

I have set up my Hipster as follows:

1. An envelope case

2. An index card with the Covey methodology on one side and the GTD methodology on the other. I had this laminated and trimmed it to fit.

3. An index card with the 2005 Calendar on one side and the 2006 Card on the other. This one is laminated and trimmed also.

This makes a case with three sections. In front are those cards I need to deal with when I get home. The middle holds other reference cards - Matrix cards with Blood Pressure, Shopping lists, checklists, whatever I need. In the back I carry lined index cards. I write big and this works well for me.

When I need to write something I pull a card from the back and use the envelope - with the laminated cards inside - to write on. It makes a nice surface to write on and fits in the palm of my hand.
