get organized.

Mug: Anthropologie Phone Case: Aeropostale c/o Notebooks: Target (similar| Planner: Vera Bradley 

I'm back into my school routine which is why my blog is suffering (again). This horrible winter weather doesn't help either. So instead of waiting around, I thought I'd incorporate more lifestyle posts! I'm sharing how I stay organized in college. 
Here we go! 


1. A large desk calendar. This works for me because I can put my very most important dates on it. I only put down long term goals so it isn't bogged down with daily homework assignments. This includes: sorority events, games, and exam dates. Color coding is also a must for me. 
I also do this exact same method with my planner for an at a glance look when I'm away from my desk.


2. As for assignments due weekly, I create to-do lists. Last semester I simply did this using a post-it note app on my desk top. This year, I found an awesome app called Todoist. I love it because I can see what I need to do day by day. However, the best part is it syncs to my computer as well. 


3. Lastly, as much as I like taking notes on my computer, I force myself to hand write for some classes. It helps me focus and not get distracted on Facebook. It also helps having some adorable notebooks and school supplies! 


It's really quite simple. I love having a big picture and detailed view of my week and month on hand at all times. It's worked for me well so far and eliminates deadlines or exams sneaking up on me. 

Until next time, stay warm!

  2. Yes to lifestyle posts! You're so good at them and I think they're great to mix in.
    You have the cutest things - jealous! I'm pretty obsessed with those little notebooks and all of your other cute desk supplies. I have to be super organized too. I make to-do lists for work, to-do lists for the blog, and use my planner for general life events now that I'm out of school :)
