Tips For Organizing Your Agenda

Tuesday, September 16, 2014

I know back in this post I said I was using the Whitney English Day Designer, but at the last minute I changed my mind and switched back to my tried and true Lilly Pulitzer agenda (free shipping on all agendas right now!).

There are many different ways to organize your agenda and at the end of the day, despite what I tell you, the best thing to do is to really just go with what works best for you. This isn't a "my way or the highway" situation, but rather just some tips and tricks I've learned through the trial and error process that is organizing my agenda. 
  • Use a Binder Clip. I like to use a binder clip to section off the past months and weeks that I don't need anymore. Not only does this help keep yourself from accidentally looking at Sep. 13 instead of Oct. 13, it also makes flipping to the current day a lot easier. 
  • Color Code. I am definitely a major color coder. I color code everything from my binders, to my notes, but I have always color coded my agenda. I use a different color for each academic subject and then I use one color for all activities outside of school. This helps me save line space since I dont have to write down the name of each class for each assignment and it also helps me figure out where I need to allot my time "at a glance."
  • Cross out with a clean line. I used to do "pretty" curly-Q scribbles whenever I would cross something out in my agenda, but after a while I stopped and began just making once clean line through each task. I decided that my elaborate scribbling actually made my agenda look messier despite my efforts to make it "pretty." I also realized that by using a simple line to cross things out, I could easily refer back to things I completed without straining my eyes to read what I wrote. 
  • Use Post-It notes. Post-It notes are a life saver when you run out of room on a particular day or when you want to stick your to-do list inside your agenda. ( and Kate Spade have adorable sticky note sets.)
