    I use to buy those planner note books sold at Office Depot and OfficeMax but they are no longer available and the ones sold at Walmart aren't as well laid out.  One was good for 40-50 games so over the years I might have brought fifty but I've only kept the last three or four.  Some times it would be nice to good back and see what I did the two times I missed winning the local jackpot by one number.

      I use Moleskine ruled journals.  They have 80 pages, but I use 2 facing pages for each draw, so one notebook covers 39 draws. 

      I have 10 or so of these in my bottom desk drawer and once in a while I haul them out to do research.  For example, based on the statistics highlighted in my notes, could I have identified the winner?  If so, what would the most efficient set of filters be?  Which statistic was most important in identifying the winner?

      I also keep a separate notebook for playing strategies, key statistics, systems, etc.

          One notebook for jotting down specific things regarding my state picks so I don't forget. Everything else is incorporated into spreadsheets.

                Ha ha...please. You're overrating me! It's not all that special, trust me...just a matter of being organized and knowing which program lends itself best to accomplishing what you want and it's all manual input. Anyone can do it. I maintain dates, draws, costs, and profits so I know exactly what's going on at all times. More or less like book keeping...even your check book. Can't speak for anyone else but, it's standard issue for me to keep track of ALL THINGS MONEY...and especially with gambling like this.

                Matchmaker...you really brought back some memories just then. I do make 'em 'Match, though. I promise. Hope everything is going well with your lotto program!!!!

                    In the beginning when I was like a fish out of water, I had about 10.

                    If we counting printouts, about 25-40.Confused

                    Now... I have 2 and my brain make 3 lol

                    The goal is to approach the Pick 3 & Pick 4 game sensibly and systematically!! Wink

                      I'm down to the brain...no notebooks.
                      One index card per day and I throw it away. Part of the problem with the notebooks was
                      too much stuff laying around. I couldn't stand it anymore.
