THIS PLANNER IS FROM WAL-MART I BELIEVE I PAID AROUND $13
I'm an organized person at heart but when I started college I new I'd have to step it up. And that's what I'm going to share with you guys.
This is the inside, I LOVE planners that are big because I write everything and the small planners just weren't cutting it anymore.
Okay to get on to how I organize it.....
1. Organizing Classes
I write my classes out on each day, then leave a couple lines in between to write what were doing that day or homework assignments
As shown below, I use to have a color for each class in my old planner but I found that to be a pain so now I use whatever pen/pencil I have in my hand during class.
This is what a full week looks like in my planner A LOT of writing (to me anyways).
(picture didn't clear up like I wanted, sorry)
2. How I keep it organized with in my planner.
I Circle the important stuff such as test, assignments, or meetings
I also write on the day, that homework was assigned then next to it when its due.
And my most favorite, I high light EVERY assignment once it's done. I just started the high lighting this semester and I love it so much.
3. The TO DO List
Another thing I do with assignments is on the Friday day I make a weekend To Do List. I write on the day the assignments due/assigned along with on the To Do list. Then once I finish something I high light it off both places. This just lets me see it in multiple places and I'm a big check stuff off as I go kind of person.
4. Other Systems
My calendar and To Do list in my room is another way I keep everything organized.
The Calendar I bought from Hobby Lobby- if you use a 40% off coupon its $10 :)
The white board I bought from Wal- Mart, around $5 then decorated it (I have a tutorial how I did it once I post it to my blog I'll link it)
This system works because I get tired of looking at my planner when I'm at home. That's why once I get home from school I write everything I got assigned that day on my TO DO list. Then I get started on finishing it all. I usually write the day it ALL due really big and that becomes my goal.
Now I know every person is different in how they stay organized, but this system works very well for me. I've been using this system since I started College, a year and half ago. And have only missed turning in ONE essay. Other then that all my homework is turned in on time.
So give it a try, comment, or leave me some advice how I could improve it. I hope you enjoyed, thanks so much.
