Organizing with Post-Its - A Color Coded Calendar!

Here is a fun and simple solution to keep your calendar and family schedule organized!

Color Code activities and events with POST-IT flags!

Professional Organizer in Peachtree City, Georgia shows how to Organize & Color Code your Planner or Calendar with POST-IT flags!

Even with all the electronic options available for calendars these days, it is still my personal preference to have an old fashioned paper planner.

{The one pictured here is a very basic 'At a Glance' brand monthly day planner from my local Staples office supply store.}

I have always been a fan of color coding as it allows you to quickly and easily identify items or tasks. With just a glance, I can recognize who and what type of activities are scheduled.

I have experimented with simply using colored pens or highlighters in the past, but found that ink went through the thin pages of the planner which didn't look very nice when you turned the page.

 Also, in my work as a Professional Organizer, it occasionally happens that a client needs to re-schedule their appointment.  You can't erase pen and highlight.  I LOVE how easy it is to simply pull up the post-it flag and re-attach it to another day!  That feature is also super helpful for recurring tasks like a long term project or extra curricular activities for children - just keep moving those flags!

I have been using this system for about 3 months before sharing to make sure that I didn't have a problem with flags falling off, but so far it has worked beautifully!  I purchased all the supplies for this project at Staples in Peachtree City.

Here's my Current Color Code Rundown:

BLUE: Business - Mostly Client Appointments
RED:  Events Relating to Husband
GREEN: Events Relating to Children
YELLOW: Recreation / Entertainment
PURPLE: Personal Appointments / Reminders
