Organization: How I plan my life

So last week I posted pics of my Erin Condren teacher planner. Well, I am linking up with Ladybug's Teacher Files and Fun in Room 4b's Optimum Organization to share two things with you: My Erin Condren Life Planner and a few ideas I have to help me be organized in my classroom.

First, my life planner. This baby is used heavily. 

These are my plans for next week. I am a serious write-it-down-and-cross-it-out-when-finished person. Even if I finish something but never put it in my planner, I will go back and write it down just so I can cross it off. Haha!

I am going to make one of these little things for next year. I already have the materials and it just needs put together. 


  1. I love crossing things off my list. I seriously do the same as you and write everything in my planner. When I first got my iPhone, I tried to just put things in the calendar on my phone, but it's not the same. I like writing it down and crossing it off! :)

  2. Girly, I can TOTALLY relate to your need to cross things off a list. Sometimes, I write things down on my list even after I've completed them...just so I can cross it off and feel more accomplished :)

  3. I seriously want to make one of those organizer too. Let us know how it turns out for your.


  4. I am definitely a list maker and cross-off person too! There is just something very satisfying knowing you have completed something. :) New follower!

  5. You will absolutely love your teacher toolbox. I'm actually making a second one this summer for my students to be able to use... If you want a template for adding titles to your boxes, I have one on a post from last summer. http://funin4b.blogspot.com/2012/06/ive-got-glue-gun-and-im-not-afraid-to.html

    Thanks for linking up with us!

  6. I have the materials to make one, too, but I can't decide if I want the contents to be visible or not. I don't know if I want to do it like Elizabeth's or Kristen's :)

  7. I agree with Elizabeth, that toolbox saved my life organizationally this year!!! Thanks for joining us, I can't wait to see how yours comes out! :)

  8. I am so guilty of adding things to my list after I've completed them just for the satisfaction of crossing them off! So glad I'm not the only one out there. I love my Erin Condren Life Planner too! This is my second year using it and I am hooked!
