First of all, yes. I got a makeover. I was getting a little tired of the old design. I loved the colors, but I was itching for something new! I also updated my about me and love story pages and I'm loving those. So anyway, if you're looking to makeover your own blog, I'd love to help! Visit my design site here.
Back to business…
Last October, I wrote a post on how I keep my blog organized. Well, I stopped using that stuff about
two seconds a few days after I wrote that post. It just wasn't working for me. While the printables are booming on Pinterest, they weren't for me. So, I thought I would do another post on keeping organized, this time for both my blog and school.
I have trouble focusing and keeping track of everything I need to do. If my planner has too much written on it, I get anxious and I miss things. I can't stand my planner being messy and unorganized. How'd I solve this problem? I have like four planners. Logical, right? I actually just have two planners (one for my blog and one for school), a wall calendar, and a notebook. But without those four things, I would be a mess.
school planner #1.
Ew, that page looks gross. But this planner is just a simple (and kind of ugly) planner from Target. Usually, I have it color coated or divided some way by class, just so I can keep everything separate and organized. But this is just where I write my assignments for the week. Whatever homework or reminders I have to do for my classes go in this one.
My school planner has a monthly calendar in it, but I never use that. Instead, I have this cute little wall planner from Target that I got for like 10 bucks. On this one, I only put the big assignments. If I have an essay due, an exam, or a final, it goes on this calendar. I have the big assignments separate from my normal homework because it's easier for me to track this way. I like having one place to look that's clean and organized so I don't forget any of my bigger assignments.
I know I've shared this one before, but please tell me this isn't the cutest planner you've ever seen?! I absolutely love this one from Sugar Paper that I got from Target. This particular planner doesn't have a weekly view, just a monthly one. It's perfect because it's light and pink and gold and perfect. Ugh. Anyway, this one I use to schedule posts, track sponsorships, and remember any important dates for link ups, giveaways, or whatever bloggy stuff is going on. On a good week I even have a whole week of posts scheduled and it looks like this!
I've shared this one too, but I love my cute little notebook. I use this one for anything blog related. I write down sponsors, current projects, post ideas, notes, or whatever I need to keep track of! It's perfect and it's literally the cutest.
So, the moral of the story: Target is the shit. Also, I'm crazy and I need a million ways to organize my life.
What do you do to stay organized?
