4 easy ways to organize with a notebook!

Before I realized the benefit of a paper brain I was always on a hunt for the best way to organize everything I had to do.  I was convinced that if I only found a good system I would be cured of my scatter brain ways.

The truth is that it really doesn’t matter what system you use.

It matters that you actually use it!  

I’ve tried all of these to-do list systems and I think they are all great options!
