How I Organize Everything

So much of what I do on a daily basis happens online. Because of this, I’ve perfected a bunch of systems to keep me incredibly organized. As a self-employed person, I find it so so so important to be as organized as possible. There is often no one else to pick up the slack or…

Organize, please… Spring Cleaning Check List

Now that it’s technically spring, I’ve been working on my spring cleaning list. Honestly, it’s pretty boring. I clean my apartment thoroughly every weekend and do tidying up every night… but I’m doing a deep dive cleaning spree. Floors, walls, every nook & cranny. No stone left unturned. Besides the obvious “cleaning” that should be…

Organize, Please… GMAIL

I am a gmail addict and have a huge system worked out. I have a few email accounts.  An AOL one (I know, so 1990s) that I use for pretty much everything, my Georgetown address, and a few gmail accounts. (Speaking of email addresses, you can reach me at carly [at] thecollegeprepster [dot] com) Before I…

Organize, Please… School Documents!

I’ve discussed a little bit about how I’m a little OCD about how I organize my laptop. Because the semester is beginning to pick up speed (already, I know), I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to share just how detailed I organize my documents. But first, I want to say something to Microsoft…

Organize, Please… Desks (again)

I was obviously trying to be conscience about the space available to me, but the kitchen table seriously doesn’t cut it! My new…

Inbox Zero

I take email very seriously. It’s definitely the most influential form of communication right now and I think it’s something that should be managed in a professional way. But it’s overwhelming. Unlike phones (calls, text messages, etc.), everyone can get in contact with you. Getting an email address is super easy if you know particular cadences…

Organize, Please… New Semester

 I’ve had a few classes already for this semester, and I thought this would be a perfect time to do a little semester organization post.  Most of us are back in school, or heading back fairly soon… there is no better time to get organized for the semester than now.  Don’t put off the organization, or…

Organize, Please: Travel Bags

I feel like this is the first ten day stretch where I’m not going somewhere. Packing is normally not my forte. (I stress out about it and always forget something despite seriously overpacking.) One thing that I have down pat from all my recent travels is packing toiletries. I actually feel like packing toiletries is one of…

The Best Way to Organize Your Life

Okay. I have been trying anything and everything to stay organized, but it’s turned into a muddle of papers, notebooks, sticky notes, Google documents, and email drafts. I love my Google calendar and it’s really the best thing since sliced bread; I wouldn’t be able to keep my schedule in order without it. But I had…
