how i manage

Mar 31, 2013

I consider myself organized. Very organized.
I am a full-time graduate student taking four classes, yes four, and on top of that, I work a full-time job. I live approximately 50+ miles from my job, so a round trip consists of at least 100 miles a day. I spend about 2.5+ hours driving. And I am a dog mom to my awesome baby girl Fifa.

How do I manage?
A planner. I know technology can make this a lot easier but seriously, being able to write things down and check them off feels so good!
The colors make everything so much more fun.
This planner is amazing. I don't know what I will do when next year I won't be able to get it. Why? Well, because it's from Thailand.

Aside from this nifty planner, I do use post-its to remember what groceries to buy, the assignments I need to get done that day, and a variety of other things.

I feel so accomplished when I look back on the weeks.

How do you stay organized?


  1. Your post made me think. Did you see 30 days of Lists??

    My sister-in-law gave it a go, check out her blog...

    1. I have seen that! I've wanted to try it but with everything else in life I def have to put it on hold until next time! :)

  2. I wish I could be this organized! Funny thing is I WANT to be organized, I feel better when I am, but I'm too lazy to keep up with it every day. Looking at your planner thought makes me think I need to just find the right system. And 4 graduate classes wow! You go!

  3. UGH sheesh! I'd move closer to your job ;).

    I too use a planner. I was using the gold planner from Target that you bought the silver one of, but Dominic got a hold of a marker... and well... I went to Target and bought a new one. I have to write everything down or I lose my mind. I also use my "Reminders app" on my iphone.

    Maybe your folks can send you a new planner next you if you remember what store it was from ;)
