School Ready: Organization

Organization Tips for the Upcoming Year

Anyone who knows me knows that I am an organization fanatic.

I am all about everything having a place, matching and coordinating color schemes, neat and clean edges... you get the picture.

Whenever back-to-school time comes around, I think we all make resolutions of punctual time management and magnificent organization, but by the first quarter, things aren't quite as picture perfect as we have dreamt.

Here are 3 tips to stay organized, efficient, and on top of things this upcoming year:

• 1 •
Do not hoard! I am not even going to try and deny it: I LOVE WRITING INSTRUMENTS!
By the first month of school, I have pens, pencils, highlighters, and sharpies coming out of every bag in sight. I need to streamline and limit how much I bring with me each day!

• 2 •
Write down everything you need to do - school related or not. Do you have cards to write and mail? Errands that need to be run? Money that needs to be deposited? Whatever it may be, make sure to write it all down and cross it off.

Also, check out the app Swipes! Swipes is my lifesaver... Basically you type in anything and everything that needs to be done and it makes you a checklist. The best part: when you finish a task you get to swipe it off and it is the most amazing feeling in the world!!!

• 3 •
Save old papers for exam time. This was my biggest mistake freshman year. After the first semester, I emptied out all of my binders - and although I saved them, I never organized or referred back to them!! Definitely a fantastic study tip!!

I hope these tips will help you when gearing up for back-to-school. Let me know how your first days go! Mine is on Thursday!
