    So, after years of having separate plan books for each facet of my life (an Outlook calendar for work, a personal calendar, a school calendar, a daily plan book, a notebook for meeting notes... ), I've finally created a way to merge them all together. I just got a small 3-ring binder and some dividers and put everything in one place. DUH! I can't believe it took me this long to figure it out! :blush:

    I'm really happy with this new organizational system. I've basically incorporated 5 notebooks into one, and I'm able to move things around, add things, remove things, etc.

    Even though this works for now, I've got my eye on the circa system from Levenger (one day when I've got the bucks to shell out): http://www.levenger.com/pagetemplates/navigation/products.asp?params=category=326|level=2

    Care to share your organizational successes (or woes)?

    I have a school-year planner from the dollar store :) I like the cheapies because it makes them less precious.

    I have a large calendar on my desk, a lesson plan book for..well lesson plans and a "dayOne" planner by Franklin Covey where my personal calendar and addresses are in. The one on my desk is for school related activities, meetings, information.

    I agree, catsos! I have the gradebook from Target's dollar spot (the one with the wrong cover). I type out my lesson plans each week. I have a small desk calendar, but rarely refer to it. I have two lovely leather cases for a spiral bound planner, but I'm terrible at keeping up with them. The best calendar I ever had was the square Bad Girl calendar. It was the perfect shape and size, but they don't make them anymore. So, so sad.

    I use "The Teacher's Daybook" by Jim Burke for my planner. I like all of the "extra" stuff that the book contains - tips on how to balance your life, teaching tips, online forms, monthly and yearly goal setting forms, a monthly calendar as well as the weekly planning pages.
    Our personal calendar is a google calendar because my husband (who works from home) has to know which places the girls need to be when. I've found that since we've created a family calendar online, I stay much more on top of things.

    I use google calendar at school, and then it syncs with my outlook calendar at home. I also have a three ring binder that I put all my lesson plans in. I am a behaviour specialist, so I don't have grades or anything... other than that I just have a filing cabinet with hanging file folders on each student on my list where I keep all important files.

    I have a large 3 ring binder that I put by plan book, calendar, and then dividers with everything else I use at school in them. One divider each for the 2 committees I am on, one has grant information (grants I am waiting to hear back from and anything I think I might want to write a grant for), one divider has all the sub info I need - sub directions for phone and website, a list of subs, etc... It was the best change I made this year! I don't have to have separate things for each meeting I go to :2up:
