You need a planner! No, seriously, hear us out. You probably think that planners are just for busy professionals or middle schoolers required to write down their homework. But we’ve got news for you: planners are for everyone! Weekly planners can help you organize your life while giving you a way to focus on what matters. They are one of the top items we suggest all college students have around. Not convinced? Here’s why you need a weekly planner and planner printables in your life.
Internships, meetings with TAs, class schedule changes, recital practice, social events…college life can get hectic!. And often times, we just don’t get the chance to put it in our phone.
Why leave all that important stuff to chance? Plan it all out in the most effective way possible with a weekly planner! By using a planner that is colorful, stylish, and full of great features (such as monthly calendars, notes, and/or pockets), you can take control of your life. And even better, you can actually become more productive.
Ready to start? The first step is to find a planner that you are comfortable carrying around. If you use a purse or a backpack, be sure to pick one that can be easily transported. Too large and you’ll probably want to leave it at home. Too small and you’ll be squinting to see your handwriting.
Then, start jotting. You can use your planner like you would a homework tracker or a scheduler. But you can also use a planner to write out a weekend to-do list or a goal sheet that lists what you want/need to accomplish throughout the week.
Your planner should be personalized to fit your needs, and that’s why we love planner printables. Bold and vibrant is our style – as it helps us highlight the important things (without having to carry around a highlighter or colored pens). We also love awesome shapes — such as hearts for date nights, flags for the important stuff, stars for evening meetings, and speech bubbles for notes to ourselves.
Using a planner can change your life for good! The more you use it, the more you’ll see just how essential having one is for your busy life. Check out our free planner printables and get on your way to organizing your days!
