My Lists and Planner

Starting off this post, I'm going to show what my planner looks like and then I'll go over how I decorate it, and then how I've written my lists. This is going to be a really picture heavy post with some explanations sprinkled in.

My planner has a large page with the whole month on it, and then the pages are broken up by the week (one week on 2 pages). I prefer the planners that have wide spaces for each day that are lined.

I've always loved writing lists and being organized. When it comes to school, I've been able to keep up with everything that's going on in my week by making lists so I don't forget anything! I typically spice things up a little bit with washi tape and stickers.

I'll also write motivational quote, or other quotes that I like, in the margin around the month and date on the weekly pages. For the most part, I write them in during the week that I'm on so that the quotes can be kind of a reflection of that week in addition to my lists.

Now about my lists! The reasons that I prefer the wide, lined sections for each day is because they're the easiest for writing lists! I'll split the section for the day into two parts - the things that are going on that day, and then my to-do list. Just to give you an idea of what I mean - Here's my section for Tomorrow in my planner. 

In my to-do lists, I'll put in the classes that I have as well as whether or not I work, and then I'll add anything that I still need to do to that list as the day goes on. For example, I've already done the homework that's due tomorrow because I had those things on my to-do lists on different days. I'll do the same thing with tomorrow's list when I look over the next few days worth of assignments that are due. I'll also put in things like study times, when I need to go to the store, when to change the filter cartridge for my tank, cleaning, and even when food I have expires and I need to throw it out! 

I hope this post was informative! These are the ways that I stay organized and keep up with everything in my life. My lists and my planner keep me from going crazy trying to remember everything that I'm meant to be doing!

What do you do to stay organized? Let me know!

I'll see you on Tuesday.


  1. I love you planner!! I have a Laura Ashley week by week calendar tear off pad with a to do list attached that stays on my desk to keep me organised. I also have a really pretty diary I write all my blog post ideas in! I like the idea of a motivational quote each week!
