Staying Organized

by Katie on October 1, 2014

in College Life

If you’re anything like me, you start the semester with the best of intentions.  You vow to stay perfectly organized and file everything in its appropriate place before you go to sleep at night… and then September rolls around, and you’re back to your unorganized, I’ll-deal-with-it-later habits.

If you know anything about Pinterest, it’s a wonderfully addictive tool that you can use to find lots of fun DIYs for college and for other projects.  It uses boards to organize pins (think: links to website articles or images that that interest you) and lets you go back to those pins at any time via your Pinterest profile.  Just sign up for an account and search different DIYs, or utilize their huge number of Pinterest board categories to search a broad amount of topics.

A big thing on Pinterest is their DIYs on organization.  I searched far and wide on Pinterest’s DIY boards (so you could save your precious study time!) and found the best, most convenient organization-DIYs for college students.  Smartphone apps are another great way to stay organized, so I included one app to very useful links for college students.  I often use my phone’s calendar for study prompts and reminders.  I also use AnyList (one of the apps listed in the 3rd link below) to make To-do lists, grocery lists, and any other important reminders.

Stay organized this semester and enjoy the following links!

For college there are two things I recommend getting besides the obvious textbooks. That is a planner and a flash drive. These two things will save your life in college. The planner kept me organized and reminded me of what I had to do each day and when assignments were due. I like to be organized and this was something I learned at a very young age and it went with me through college and probably the rest of my life. Now, a flash drive. It is a good source for saving your documents. Also, keep back ups. When I save items I usually save it to my flash drive, desktop, and dropbox/email. You never know when technology decided to fail. Next thing you know your screwed on an assignment that is due the next day and you had a couple weeks to work on it. Learn from my mistake and just be cautious.
