This can be any calendar you want to use. Maybe you want a cheesy fireman of the month calendar to hang on the wall. Maybe you finally use your phone’s calendar to its fullest extent. Either way, using a map is a great way to get really organized with your obligations. It gives you a chance to see everything at a glance. If you put everything on a phone, you can get notifications to make sure that you never forget anything ever again.

Make Lists

Literally make so many lists. Make daily lists. Make weekly lists. Lists are a good way to keep track of what you have to do on a micro level. Being able to scratch something off the list as you do it is so satisfying.

Create A Plan

Plan everything out. Make plans for all of that things you have to do. There might be steps to get something done. Don’t jump in without planning it out because that could cost you a lot of time and headache. Be like your mami and always think things all the way through, even if it is annoying. Trust the process.

Buy A Planner

Reach back into those middle school days and get yourself a planner. Yes. An annoying, daily planner where you write things down and use stickers to highlight different categories. It will be both very helpful and incredibly nostalgic. Get those highlighters ready.

Don’t Overwhelm Yourself

This is the most important tip on staying organized. Do not over extend yourself this year. Commit to what you can handle and schedule. Don’t double book or give yourself crazy long hours. Always make time for self-love and self-care. You are too important to let yourself burn out from doing too much.
