How I Organize My Lilly Pulitzer Agenda + Agenda Review

I love my Lilly Pulitzer agenda. It's by far my favorite item for school, and it's the item I use the most. This school year will be my second one using a Lilly Pulitzer agenda, and now that I've established a specific planning method for using my agenda, I'm excited to share it with y'all!

I got the agenda on the right for the upcoming school year (the monogram is from The Monthly Initial and you can read about it here), but today, I'm going to be showing pictures from last year's agenda, since it's all filled in and I've only had a couple weeks to start using my current planner. Both agendas are a size large - It's the perfect size for me, because I have just enough room for all of my school-related tasks and events.

I use my agenda primarily for school purposes. I don't really keep my social events on a calendar anywhere, because most social events are tied to school somehow (soccer, National Honors Society, etc.) so they're included in my agenda. However, since the Lilly agendas have a 17 month time span, I have started using last year's agenda for personal and social use.

I really want to get more into decorating my agenda this school year - it makes planning even more fun! Currently, I only use the stickers that come with the planner and some Emoji stickers I got for Christmas, but I would like to add in some washi tape and fun handwriting in my new agenda.

I have all of my subjects color coded. Each class has a specific color pen, and I also have a certain color for birthdays/holidays and a color for school-related events that take place after school such as soccer practice or clarinet lessons. I use these pens, and I'm in love with them. They are such good quality and have very vibrant colors.

This month, I was clearly very excited about Christmas and got a little carried away... but can you blame me?

On my monthly calendar, I have an overview of everything important - holidays, birthdays, tests, and due dates for assignments.

On each specific day in my planner, I keep track of daily homework assignments that I need to complete. This means that each day varies - one day might be completely filled with writing, but the next day might be empty. I will also occasionally place a sticky note on a certain day if I have an important reminder or task that needs to get done.

Overall, I love my Lilly Pulitzer agenda. It keeps me so organized, and it's a great tool for reminding me of all of my homework assignments. I've had other agendas in the past, but I've always given up on writing my assignments down by October. Something about this particular one is different, however, because I actually want to use it.

If you're on the fence when it comes to buying a Lilly Pulitzer agenda, buy it. I promise you, it will be a great investment. Not only do the colorful, bright pages make school a little more bearable, but it also makes organization incredibly easy. In the widget below, I've included a variety of different prints and sizes so you can choose the best planner for you.

Do you have a Lilly Pulitzer agenda? If so, how do you organize it? Let me know by leaving a comment!
