It's all about the person though. I never do good with pen and paper. Putting things on computer keeps me better organized.

This is true, and any tool that helps someone get organized is a good idea. And, I think that convenience does have some actual value that can be worth paying for (assuming the program makes things more convenient. For me, it would be worse. I'd fire up the computer, play SIMS or Civilization for an hour, surf the Fool, look at the program again, procrastinate some more...).

I still think I would advise taking a shot at doing this the old-fashioned way first, particularly if money is tight. If it doesn't work out, you can always try the software later.
