I know that it has been forever since I posted on my blog, but honestly school has been absolutely crazy these past couple of months. That’s why I thought a post on how I organize my life would be perfect.
My life is filled with classes, homework, exams, work, taking care of teddy, blogging, oh and taking time for myself! The only way that I can keep track of everything that I have going on is by using my planner. If y’all follow me on my Instagram you would have probably seen one of my many posts of my planner. I love making these and you gals love seeing them! It’s a win-win situation.
I get tons of comments and messages after I post a picture of my planner on what my favorite planners are and accessories and how I stay so organized. If you are one of those people this is going to be the post for you! I am going to break down everything that I use to make my planner keep me on track.
The most important part of being organized is by finding a planner that best suits your needs. If you need one that breaks down each hour of the day or you just want some writing space for each day, think about what you are in need of. I personally do not need a breakdown of the hours so I opted for a writing space for everyday.
Decorating my planner makes me happy and feel like I can take on anything! Using different pens helps organize my planner and make it look even better. I personally do not use a ton of different colors to write down everything I need to do. What I will usually do is write everything in black and will decorate my planner with other colors like pinks and grey’s. I have linked some of my favorite pens to use when decorating my planner!
When I finally started to use stickers in my planner it totally took my planner to another level! I love being able to add stickers that have adorable sayings or honestly just a cute sticker! The stickers help distract me from all of the other stressful things written in my planner. HaHa!
Honestly, that is all of the materials that you need to create an adorable planner every week! Now I am going to answer a few questions that I got regarding my planner so that you gals can know everything.
How long does it take you to fill out your planner every week?
All together it only takes me about an forty five minutes to an hour to fill everything out.
Do you spend time everyday filling it out?
Actually, no. I like to wake up early Monday morning and take time to organize everything for the upcoming week. This way I can have an overview of everything that I need to make time for the week.
What is your favorite part of planning?
If you know anything about me you know I am the least creative person EVA! I cannot draw for the life of me! What I love is that I can be so creative when it comes to my planner and I can change everything up!
Girl, how do you stay organized?
For me I have multiple calendars and my handy dandy planner. I have a monthly overview calendar that is in my planner and then I have a larger one at home. My planner literally comes everywhere with me (even on Target runs!) At the beginning of each month I write down everything on both calendars so I don’t forget anything. This is a life changer!!!
Do you have any tips of how to get organized?
First, don’t go out and buy a ton of different calendars and planners and accessories because you will get overwhelmed! Start off slow, I would suggest starting with a planner and carry it around with you to write down anything you have to do.
That wraps up my planner essentials and a little q & a having to do with how I plan and organize! I am curious do y’all use a planner? If so comment below so we can connect!
Have a great weekend babes!
