Time to get organized and keep track of your projects, assignments, and tests in a Paperage spiral bound academic planner. With a calendar that starts in August, you’ll be able to start the school year right. It’s easy to think you’ll be able to remember all the things, but when it gets busy, assignments get lost and project are late. Set yourself up for success and follow these 3 Steps to Use an Academic Planner like a Pro.

Step 1: Make note of your class schedule

As soon as you know your classes, fill in the schedule at the front of your Paperage academic planner. With a quick glance you’ll be able to see where you need to be and when. Use the Paperage gel pens to assign each class a color – it will give you a bright pop of color for easy reference, plus it’ll put a smile on your face!

Step 2: Detail monthly projects and assignments

Using the color assigned to each class, add your important projects, assignments, and to-dos to each month at a glance tab. The notes section on the side is the perfect place to jot down who’s part of group assignments, supplies to purchase, or a class reading list.

Step 3: Keep yourself motivated!

The weekly spread is a great place embellish your planner with inspirational quotes or encouragement. Got a big test coming up? Grab a pink pen and leave yourself an encouraging reminder. Stickers and washi tape are another way to add a bit of fun and color to your planner.
