How to Organize Your Agenda & Plan for Vacation
It’s that time of year when we’re taking our last summer dip in the ocean and heading back to school. We enlisted the help of one of our good friends, Abby, of Belle of the Ball, to share how she keeps the sunshine and vacation mindset alive while she starts off the college year. Abby has been using the Lilly agenda for years, and counts on it to both organize her life and plan for her next getaway. Read our interview with her below to see how she organizes and uses her agenda to make more time for FUN. xx
What year are you in college and what are you looking forward to most in going back to school soon?
“I will be a junior in college this year- I can’t believe how fast college is flying by! I’m so excited to get back to school and see my friends, and move into our house. Decorating will be so much fun! Another thing I love about being back to school is getting back into a routine. My Lilly agendas always help me stay organized and get everything done that I need to!”
How long have you been using Lilly agendas?
“I started using Lilly agendas my freshman year of high school! I’ve been using them every year since. Every year I look forward to seeing which agenda prints Lilly comes out with- all of the bright colors and stickers always make planning fun! It’s also fun to look back through my old agendas and see everything happening in my life at that point, and how my style of organization has changed as I’ve gotten older.”
How do you set up and organize your Lilly agenda?
“In order to keep my agenda organized I use highlighters to color coordinate my upcoming tasks. For example, last year I used blue for school work, pink for blogging tasks, and yellow for extra curriculars! As I complete the tasks I simply check them off. I like to keep the way I organize my planner simple so that it’s not too time consuming and I can focus on getting things done! The stickers in the agenda always add fun to organizing.“
What is your #1 tip for making time for yourself or planning a getaway?
“Just do it! If you need to take time for yourself, or need a trip, do it and don’t turn back. Taking time for yourself is so important and nothing beats a vacay!”
Do you have any fun trips coming up that you’re looking forward to using your agenda to help plan?!
“One of my favorite parts about Lilly agendas is how many fun features it includes to stay organized. The ‘escape plan’ pages are so helpful in planning a trip and making sure everything goes smoothly! I have a trip in the works for an early birthday celebration that I know my agenda will be super helpful in planning.”
