Today is National Ban.do Agenda day!!! Ban.do is one of our favorite brands that we always turn to for something fun, and when it comes to staying organized these girls do just that… Make it fun! We love all of the delightful prints and accessories that they have created, each piece is unique and quirky, just like Ban.do!! With our busy schedules being moms, event planners, bloggers, etc we definitely need some organization in our lives and when you throw in some witty little additions that only the Ban.do girls could think up, you have us sold!! Today we are going to share our picks of the Ban.do 17 month agendas and tips on how we use them to stay organized!!
Ban.do always has such pretty and fun prints that it made it incredibly hard to choose which agendas we would want, but we managed!!
I chose this pretty agenda in Marble Jade… I saw that amazing color and knew it must be mine!
All of us Beijos ladies can agree that one of the main ways to stay organized is to make a list… I mean it’s pretty practical right?! Each week I start off with a big list of things I want to accomplish or get done, sometimes I’ll even do specific things for specific days if I want to get real down and dirty, haha! But seriously, I love my lists!! I don’t know about you but I’d be lost with out my grocery lists, I have to make lists for the grocery store or else it’s guaranteed I’ll forget something!! But holding myself accountable each week helps me to get things done and stay on top of what I need to do. Plus, checking off my list brings me such an insane sense of satisfaction, haha, it’s the little things people! And that’s definitely my type A coming out…
Next up is Leah who chose the ombre looking Magic Hour Agenda, which reminds us of a pretty summer sunset…
Leah is on the go a lot!! She has her two little girls and a little boy on the way so you can imagine she always has her hands full, and it’s about to get even crazier!! Her favorite part of the Ban.do agenda is she can take it with her wherever she goes to reference anything she may need. Another thing we all use is the calendar, which we reference constantly… Having a blog and running an event business we always need to make sure we have our dates and timing under control… We can easily check if we have a conference call with a client or a shoot scheduled before planning what we will do next. It’s also a great way to remember special dates like anniversaries or birthdays! Oh, and did we mention how much we love all of Ban.do’s fun accessories?! Using their stickers or tape makes it even more enjoyable to add to our calendars, and they have the BEST sayings ever…
Last is Abby who chose the very lovely Lady of Leisure Agenda, how pretty is this print?!
But Abby is definitely not a lady of leisure, she is one busy bee and she needs her agenda!! Something we must admit is that of course, we all use our iPhones to keep track of our calendars and lists, but our last tip is to still use your agendas… We can’t stress enough how physically writing something down can really help to make it sink into your brain… Plus when you have conference calls or are talking to someone on the phone, it’s much easier to reference something you have written down in front of you. Believe it or not we will double up the lists on our phone AND in our agendas so we can really keep track of everything we need to do.
We hope these organization tips helped you!! Our love affair for Ban.do continues with these amazing agendas and accessories which we can’t recommend enough! Let us know any of your organizational tips in the comments, we would love to hear any advice from our readers!!
