We user a Frankilin Planner, i found a small pic to give you an idea. These are nice planners. A starter kit cost us like $100 (a nice one), then every year you buy refills. At the end of the year, but them in a cheap binder, and store it...

I just jot everything down on the dashboard of my truck in pencil and sometimes on the visor so I don't forget. It's nice cus it's always there in front of me and I can erase it if I need too. Sometimes when my girl puts her feet up on the dash it screws up my route schedule but I deal........
