How I Plan (Color Coding)

Planning is one of my favorite things to do. It keeps me organized, on track, and focused. I plan out my blog posts, school things, and regular weekly activities by color coding. I love color coding so much! It makes everything pretty and super neat. I think it’s really important to separate all the things you have/need to do into categories. Like I said, I use 3 categories: blog posts, school things and regular weekly activities. In this post, I’m going to be sharing with you how I color code my for my week!

Categories + Colors

  • Blog posts = pink
  • School = brown
  • Regular weekly activities = green

I use an Erin Condren life planner. It’s my favorite planner. I use it for everything, even planning out my meals for the week. It has thick pages so I use the Erin Condren dual tip markers to color code. There are many markers or color pens you can find on amazon for cheap to use.


  • Write everything out for the week lightly in pencil separated by morning, day, and night.
  • Then I go over the pencil with the color marker that item belongs to.
  • Once that item is completed I will use the same color marker and just put a little check next to it.
  • If I have to move something to another date I will write it onto the notepad which is attached to the ruler place holder.

* I usually keep Friday, Saturday and Sundays blank and fill those in during the week. Those are my “floating days.”

It’s honestly so easy to color code and will make your life so much easier! I highly recommend doing this, give it a try and see if it changes your life! Happy Sunday everyone! Thanks for reading(:


Hello loves! My name is Theresa Marie. I am a 21 year old college student, living in NY. I love iced lattes, animals, the fall and winter seasons, fashion, beauty, diys and food!
I started this blog in January of 2017 so that I can share the things I love and have a place for my passion of writing. Theresa Marie Daily (TMD), is a place of comfort, where you can come for recipes, beauty tips/favorites, see my personal style, fashion tips, lifestyle tips/tricks, diys, and other miscellaneous posts. I have a category called “Talks With Theresa Marie” (TWTM), where each month, I post about an occurring issue, or something random that I just feel like talking about, and I give my opinion/view on it. TWTM, gives you a personal insight on who I am and my beliefs/opinions on certain things. I hope to inspire each and every one of you to go outside the box with your food, lifestyle and personal style, and just enjoy life. Thank you so much for following along and reading!
