Oh hey, it is me! I just looked and I have not posted for over a year! My apologies. Yet, how many blog post about organization do you want to read?
I have finished my first semester of college and it was amazing. I give credit to my organization skills that made it so successful. I am going to post most of the ideas and tips I found helpful for college. I collected the tips from several Pinterest ideas. I thought I would be kind and put everything in one spot! How nice, right?
Well, a backpack is a vital item for college. It is your locker. If you are commuter this is basically your house! Anyways I looked for a while this summer and I found a Jansport backpack I really like. As you can see it has patterns, but it is neutral. I would definitely recommend it! It carries everything I need! I found mine on Amazon!
I am a mom when it comes to carrying my backpack. I have everything in a little compartment. I created this from collecting different items from different pins. Here it is in one place!
Backpack Essentials: Kleenex, Band-Aids, Fingernail Clippers, Hair things/bobby pins/headbands, Brush, Chapstick, Earbuds, Extra Charging Cord, Umbrella, Extra Gloves, Toothpicks, Hand Sanitizer, Tide Stick, Ibuprofen and TUMS, Gum
I love COLOR CODING anything I can! All my classes are color coded. That means my notebooks are color coded with the colored pen I use to write down homework in my planner. I also color a square on the top of each notebook signaling which class it is. This all helps me keep organized through the chaos of college. I label each of my notebooks/folders/binders with washi tape and then I put clear tape over it so it won’t fall off! When in doubt I write it in my planner. I think this is key! I use planner stickers also to make life a little more interesting!
I hate writing in pencil. When I can I write with color, I do! The brand I love best is Stabilo. They work really nice. I also have a fun pen case. Do you ever have that problem where you have to dig and dig to find the right color? Well, I have the perfect way to fix that problem! This pencil case came from China, but I really like it! I bought it from Amazon!
I work out at the gym on campus, but that requires a lot of packing the night before. I shower there as well. I buy little travel size containers and fill them up through the semester. As I mentioned before so I use washi tape to label those as well.
Lastly, college can get stressful, but I really like this essential oil blend called Cheer Up Buttercup! It is perfect for a rough day!
I am sure I am missing something, but this is all I have shared at the time! I hope this helps you have an organized semester!
