7 Back To School Organization Tips That Will Simplify Your Life

Organization is something you always have to adapt. Sometimes, the way you think will help you, it doesn’t, and then you have to try new ways. But no worries: one time you’ll find what type of organizations fits you. In this post, here are 7 tips to inspire you to organize your back to school. Keep reading! 

  1. 1. Color Code 

    Color code is a simple way to start organizing your subjects. You just need to pick a color for each subject and class, then stick with it until your classes are over. Here’s an example: blue is for radiojournalism, purple for economics and pink for philosophy.

    Another way is when you need to mark important parts in a text, so you choose a color for each category, like orange: title, yellow: definition and green: examples. It’s important to keep the colours you chose, because when you read a text more than once, you’ll know what each color means right away.

  2. 2. Weekly Planner

    Planning your week sometimes isn’t very simple, but it helps a lot, because you know when you have tests, some doctor appointment, dance class, gym, etc. You have to sit down in the beginning of the week and write everything down (I mean EVERYTHING) that you have to do on those days, so when you have to do something, you’ll know the day and time. Here is some printables week planners:

    C: tasks that are easy and quick to do;
