Happy New Year! To ring in the new year, I’m sharing my organization system for college. It’s no secret that I like organizing. A lot. And organizing my school stuff saves me so much time each day because I don’t waste time searching for things I need. Here is the system I use.
I love my Lilly Pulitzer agenda. I received several packages of stickers for Christmas (thanks mom and dad!) and they’re so helpful. I love that they come with fun stickers too, like “me day” and “mani-pedi”. It’s just as important to schedule fun stuff as it is to schedule time to study!
I use a small notebook to take notes and make study guides for each class. These notebooks are from the Greenroom line at Target, and I love them. I carry the notebooks I need in my tote bag to each class. These notebooks don’t take up much space, and they’re so cute!
I labeled each notebook with stickers that I found at the Target dollar section.
I use one folder for all current handouts, and I bring the folder with me to every class. When I’m studying for a test, I use binder clips to attach all the handouts for the class together. When the test is over, the packet of handouts goes into my binder.
I keep a binder for each year. Once a test is over, I put the handouts from before the test into my binder. Before finals, I go through all the handouts and throw away the ones I don’t need. I put the handouts that I do need into sheet protectors, and use the binder to study. This way, I have the handouts organized so I can refer back to them for later classes.
How do you stay organized for school/work?
