In honor of the new Lilly Pulitzer agendas coming out, (and already getting mine for the next year!!), I wanted to share how I am organizing my life this summer! I am determined to make this summer very productive while also being relaxing, spiritual, and filled with fun! I came up with a list of things I want to do at least once a week and wrote them down in different colors. Color coordinating is one of my favorite ways to organize pretty much anything especially when it come to my planner!
To do so this summer, I got the colored Paper Mate Felt Tip Pens which can be a little pricier for pens but they write so well and I love the way they look on paper! The bright colors make it easier for me to make sure everything that is on my weekly list is put in my calendar. Having it visually there for me helps me to remember to do little things like go to Adoration, clean my room, or even just go out to tan!
I make sure to write everything I need to do in order that it needs to get done or is scheduled to in the day by day part of the agenda just like this week:
This part of the agenda is what I look at the most because I always have the times of different appointments and I have more of a breakdown of the day whereas on the monthly pages I put bigger events. For me, the monthly pages make it easier to glance over my schedule and see what’s coming up! This picture is of June because I don’t have much on my July calendar yet!!
Obviously the colors I use in the weekly pages are the same in the monthly pages to make sure that everything is organized and easy to understand! When school starts, I keep the same pens for events that are outside of school work and then I use the colored Bic Cristal Ballpoint pens to write down all the homework and studying I have to do! I color coordinate my classes as well so it’s easier to have two different ink sizes so I don’t get Chemistry homework confused with my work schedule. And of course I have my favorite Kate Spade pens for notes and other things I need to write down in my agenda!
NOW last night I was looking through this year’s agendas and I’m LOVING the organization pieces of it! Here are some of my highlights in the new Lilly Agendas:
Ordered this one with the monogram from Swoozie’s! The link is at the beginning of this post.
AHH THE STICKER PAGE!! If you can tell, I couldn’t wait so I already put some of the holiday stickers on their pages 🙂 but I love the stickers this year! They are so cute!! Also the patterned page on the left is a page with a little pocket! I love that it has a pattern this year because last year it was plain white! I love putting sticky notes and page marks in the pocket to use when organizing school work!
The notes page of course! I used this so much last year to make lists of things I needed to get done and I loved having it right there in my agenda!
Names and addresses page will definitely be put to use this year since I will be at college and all my friends agreed to be pen pals at school! I’m so excited to use this to put all the addresses of my friends because there is nothing better than good old snail mail!!
Once again, the dates page will be put to use this school year so I can make sure to remember all the birthdays of my friends and different anniversaries from times in high school!
Packing lists are my favorite and I am so excited about the cute new design of the Lilly packing list pages this year!!
I’m using the April month as an example because OH MY THEY USED MY FAVORITE PRINT!!!! I screamed so loud when I saw it!! This year’s design isn’t different from last year!
Well I totally recommend getting a Lilly Agenda to organize your life! I LOVED mine last year and I cannot wait to enjoy this new one!!
Thanks for reading!
