The smell of overly priced textbooks, Pumpkin Spice Lattes, and students crying over financial aid is in the air… Fall Semester is here!
Fall is my favorite season by far. With football, crunchy leaves to step on, and scarves… Or maybe it’s just that I live in the perfect city for all those to be an option for me. But seriously. Fall is my soul jam.
With this lovely season comes the daunting Fall Semester. Sure you had a summer of fun and shameless nights, but it’s time to get your head in the game (I may or may not have just watched High School Musical on Netflix… Sue me). I have noticed more and more people asking “How are you going to organize this?” “What do I get to organize this?” All met with somewhat half answered replies about how Michael’s has everything they need. STOP THERE! Yes Michael’s has everything your heart desires, but you have to KNOW what you’re organizing or downsizing before you can buy what you need.
For instance… Would you go out and buy a new dresser when you’re clothes are lying everywhere? Heck no. You would wash everything, evaluate whether or not you’ll wear it again, and either hang it up or put it in the donation pile. Simple as that, and that’s how back to school shopping should be.
Know what you’re getting into. If you’ve been in college before you probably know what organizational style works best for you, but if this is your first year you’ve probably been on Pinterest looking at organizational styles for the last 3 months since graduation.
That’s where this series comes in. I’m no expert on organization, and my closet is a fair example. But when it comes to my education, you better believe everything is color coded and bookmarked. I’m going to be putting a few posts up in this series that may help the veteran college attendee or help the shiny new Freshmen. So stick around, do some studying, take a break, and check out this series all throughout the month of September.
