How does everyone stay organized?

I am so picky about my school work and staying organized. I have tried using store-bought planners, and I can never use them for more than a couple weeks in a row without getting bored. I have been using a bullet journal that I made, but it's hard for me to keep up with consistently!

I live and die by Google Calendar. I'm able to create different labels on there so I know if there is something that I am doing with my family or fiancé and would need some extra time to get ready for!!

Have you tried a wall calendar? It works pretty well for me. I bought mine few years ago at Target, but I found this option on Amazon . I hope it helps you.

Outlook calendar works for our family, but for the Summer I bought my 10 year old the biggest desk calendar I could find and put all of her camps and activities on it so she could see "what, when, where" at all times without needing the ipad or computer since she is on that enough. Lol! I bought her stickers too and she can decorate it to her heart's content!

I am someone that has to write it down to stay organized vs. using an online calendar. We use the At a Glance large desk calendar. I like the large boxes and our motto is if its not on the calendar, its not happening! lol!

Definitely an old school Hit List for me pen to paper, but lately been printing a weekly Hit List and put on our fridge of ALL of our To Do’s so it’s in our face. Also Microsoft To Do list syncs across devices with check lists is awesome for example a Packing list or shopping list ... my husband I sync

I love writing things down in a planner. It’s different when you actually write it. I usually color code and use different pen colors to help organize the different activities I have to do.

Family Dollar sells non-dated paper planners for like $5 that so far have been my favorites and I actually used (the other ones were basically = to burning my money haha)

Being a person that struggles with taking the time to write things out by hand, I love keeping events in my Google Calendar! You can color coordinate different events and organize them by time of day

I create a monthly, weekly and then daily to-do list. That's the only way I am able to keep track of tasks and get things done.

Personally I have to write everything down or I’m not going to get it done so I’m a huge list person! I suggest maybe getting a “knock knock pad” that’s has a “To-do” list portion and a full day view based on the hour. I also really love happy planners. They have interactive parts and add ins that you can get to change it up every once in awhile and get you excited to plan! Or maybe that’s just me who gets excited to plan lol. You can also get them at Walmart for a reasonable price!

I stay on a time schedule and keep alarms for everything. I also plan for things ahead of time, about a week in advance if I can, so fhat when the time comes I don't have to think about it I just do it.

Franklin Planners are amazing. You can buy inserts each year and always keep the things you want.

I have the same problem. I just take a blank sheet of paper and write down assignments/tests due for that week. I check them off as I go through the week and when I'm done, I throw it away! Very helpful
