Today marks week 2 of My (Attempted) Organized Life series, and this week is all about planning and scheduling!
If you know me, then you'd know that I am a big time planner. I love making lists and writing in calendars and planners. Although sometimes it still doesn't help me remember everything, I still definitely love the idea of writing things down to better remember them!
I have a few different calendars/lists that I use to keep my schedules as clearly laid out as possible.
I have a weekly dry-erase board to see things at a week's glance and see things up close and personal. I also have two monthly calendars--one that I keep on my desk and another that I have in my planner. The one on my desk is to see my plans in a cute way and separate from my planner. I have a daily portion of my planner too that divides the days by the times from 8am to 5pm. It allows me to See how much free time I have in between classes, meetings, and other things like that.
The last part of my planning and scheduling are these three notepads that I got from Target in their dollar section! I love it so much. There are three pads: to do, to buy, and to call. I use them on a day to day basis when I have a lot to do so that I can keep track of everything.
I love all of my planner-type stuff--I'm obsessed with planning! I also have a blog planner to help me plan out posts and stuff for this blog (although I am obviously not always keeping up with my schedule, like this post, whoops). It's a compilation of different blog planners that I like and I'm just trying to figure out what works best for me.
I don't have a video up for this week yet, but I will make one soon! (If not, I'll have it for next week, haha).
Until then, I'm trying to find a good planner for me to use! Although I love my current planner, I work better when my workspace is aesthetically pleasing (like my planner). I want one that is like the Erin Condren Life Planner, but much cheaper than that since I am currently on a budget!
How do you keep yourself organized when you plan out your days?
