Let’s get right to it!
Make life easy… use only ONE planner…
I own an Erin Condren Life Planner and I use it for home, work, and business. Having more than one planner is just too much to handle for me. Instead I have decided to simplify my life. 
I’ve personalized my own labels that I print on Avery Ink Jet Sticker Project Paper and then cut into strips. (Click on the picture to download a FREE copy for yourself.)
Besides my category labels, I like to use stamps and Avery color coding labels. I’m a very visual person so I need color in my planner. For my business I like to keep track of when I have a new blog post or when I post to Instagram or Facebook.
Here’s a more detailed look at my planner…
As a busy mom of 2, teacher, TPT’er, and Blogger, staying organized is a must! 
If you are interested in a Life Planner, EC is having a 25% off sale. Also, if you use my referral code you’ll receive an email with a coupon for $10.00 off your order.  

Give each of your students a number at the beginning of the year. 
I usually like to wait until the 2nd -3rd week of class since many changes usually occur during those first few weeks. I number my students alphabetically and if I get any students in the middle of the year I just add them to the bottom of my list rather than re-number my kiddos.
Why is this number system SOOOOOO WONDERFUL?
It makes finding out who has yet to turn in their paper much easier.
It helps organize my Parent Contact Log.
It makes filing a breeze.
Can be used as a quick way of recording student responses.
In addition, having a number system that is alphabetical comes in handy when you get a call from the office to line up your students quickly and in alphabetical order for vision and hearing screenings. In these cases all you have to do is line them up in number order.
Have a stash of parent letters printed and handy at ALL TIMES. I’ve found that whenever I’ve needed to write a behavior letter or important parent letter one of two things happens. Either my printer runs out of ink or I can’t find pretty stationary to write on.
To prevent this from happening, I print a bunch of letters at the beginning of the year and file them away. As I run out of copies, I make more.
