How to Keep Yourself Organized During Midterms

 

Before the blink of an eye, midterms are here! Those notes you've taken for the last two months will come in handy this week. Teachers are pulling out their best tricks to make these exams difficult and test how much you've learned thus far in the semester.

 

I've dug up a few things to keep you organized during exams. By keeping your mind clear of clutter and keep your space organized, your life itself will feel more organized.

 

 

First thing you need to do to remember when and where exams are is write them down. And though some of us were able to get the free UB Planner, not everyone had the luxury. I recommend using Anthropologie.com's: Looking Back, Looking Forward Planner. It's a small pocket notebook with vintage inspired illustrations and quotes throughout. It has a monthly and weekly section with a few checklist pages, which will help you get your thoughts in order. This $18.00 planner is well worth the money.

      Next, we have the 3M Rotary Desk Organizer with samples

This desk organizer available for $44.99 comes with Scotch Magic tape 810, Post-it notes and two packs of Post-it Flags. This do-all organizer is made out of 100% recyclable plastic and acrylic. This will keep you organized while studying late for that big exam.

 

Instead of keeping all of your books under your bed in a pile, or on the bookshelf on your roommates side of the room, how about a convenient book shelf to store your books and personal belongings on?

 

This Winsome bookshelf is $65.99 from homesupershops.com. The bookshelf is made from an attractive beech finish and can also be used as a side table. The best part about this bookshelf is the tilted shelve; it's great for displaying books and magazines.

Last but not least, there is this wonderful white alarm clock by Neewer.

 

After studying to the wee hours in the morning, we sometimes forget to set our alarm, which leaves us missing out on a hearty breakfast and showing up late to class. Here we have the Neewer Modern White LED White Wood USB Cube alarm clock for $11.30. This alarm clock is made mainly of wood, it's easy to set and powered by batteries. It's a cute little cube that would add pizzazz to your room. Despite living in the 21st century and having cell phones which can do the same thing as this alarm clock, nothing beats waking up the old fashioned way.
