Whether you’re a student, working professional, or just looking to organize your life, having an agenda book can make a world of a difference. Fun fact; I still have every agenda book from high school and college. They are like mini-scrapbooks, am I right? When I started working professionally I found myself still wanting to use agenda books to organize my chaotic life.
You can spend $3.99 at Target or up to $40 with Kate Spade, Lilly Pulitzer, or Vera Bradley. I chose to take the middle road and purchased the medium sized Lilly Pulitzer agenda book with the Coronado Carb print (pink & greeeeen!!) which runs about $20-ish dollars.
I keep tabs on important events by using the monthly section of the agenda book. Any important dates, events, bills, etc., are noted here. I use tape to quite literally “tape off” important events. This is mostly of aesthetics but I suppose it does serve a purpose.
My weekly section has more details about the current state of my life. Blog posts, work meetings, deadlines, appointments, etc. My little purple post-it acts as a bookmark so I can easily turn to the current week. Paper clips also work very well for this function.
I suggest buying some gel pens and color coordinating your life. If Kate Spade can live colorfully, so can you. And there you go! How to you organize your life? Let me know in the comments, I’m curious.
