GTD Wallet for less?

I saw on the David Allen (GTD) website a very nice sized wallet with a notepad build in. However, at $89 it's kinda expensive. "The wallet’s compact 3” x 4 3/4 “ design features 2 compartments for holding up to 5 cards, with 2 additional full size pockets for cash , receipts, or business cards. The wallet fits comfortably in your suit, jeans pocket or bag. " Where can I find a similarly sized walled/notepad combo for less?

Dropped my planner in a puddle, this has got to end.

I'm about to buy my first briefcase, and I'm looking for advice. I don't need to carry a laptop, I just want something that will help me juggle a couple books, my planner, loose sheets of paper, a 3-ring binder, a newspaper, and my purse as I go between home, work and work-related appointments. It should be easy to carry, professional looking, good at organizing these things, and maybe it can replace my purse during the work day. What are the best features of awesome briefcases? What should I be wary of?

Specific to-do list needs.

I am looking for any online task list/calendar that meets the following criteria: 1)sync with Palm/using WinXP; 2)supports categories; 3)supports recurrence; 4)(preferably) has some way to be integrated into my Wordpress website.

How to most efficiently reorganize a filing system?

I am looking for a resource or advice on organizing files and folders on a shared hard drive. I am faced with 12 GB of files that need to be reorganized - many files and folders are out-of-date, irrelevant, or obsolete, and many were created by people who no longer work at my company for projects that are no longer active. I'm hoping to hear about a strategy that helps me methodically organize all of this data, archiving what's no longer needed and coming up with an intuitive filing system for what is. [more inside]

Hipster PDA Filter - How do you deal with phone numbers and contact info in a paper based system?

I'm interested in switching from my palm to a paper based calendar and to do list, but the one thing I can't seem to make work is my phone book. I've been using my palm for many years so, I have a good number of phone numbers built up in there that I want easy access to - and need to be able to add to. This may sound like a stupid question (use a paper book for phone numbers!), but I'm just interested in how people do this, if they eventually enter numbers back into electronic form to back up (one of the things i like about the palm system is that the couple of times that i've lost my palm, i haven't lost the numbers), etc. Any advice appreciated.

how to use GTD for computer files

I use David Allen’s GTD (Getting Things Done) system along with other productivity styles similar to it and spawned from it. I’ve organized many things in my life, but my computer files are still all over the place and don’t seem to have the same logic as my other implementations. I am curious if anyone has set up a GTD system for his or her computer files, or another system that works very well at retaining organization, short term and long term. I use Windows XP right now, but am curious about other operating systems as well such as Linux. I appreciate any tips or tricks that can be provided, thanks in advance.
