One of the easiest way to organize your school life is by color coding everything! A color coded system is going to make finding and doing assignments so much easier.

I have been using this system for as long as I can remember and cannot imagine school without it!
If it was up to me, I would color code my entire life, but for now I will start with school.
Over the years, I have had completely digital classes, 100% on-paper classes, and a mix of the two. Needless to say, I have mastered the color coded class system for whatever the situation may be!
This post is all about a color coded class system!
This system is pretty self-explanatory: every class has a different color.
This is extremely helpful when you are taking a lot of classes. In my high school, I take six different classes, so I have six different colors (English, math, science, history, language, elective). That way, each class is assigned a different color.
Now that you have a corresponding color for each class, you want to use this color primarily in two other places: your notes and your agenda.
Color Coded notes
If you take paper notes, you will most likely have a folder, notebook, or binder for your class.
Make sure that whatever materials you use for this class are the “class color.” If you use binders, you also want to print a binder cover in the matching color.
If you take digital notes, everything should still be color coded.
For example, my classes on Google Drive each have a folder with a different color, which matches everything else.
Color coded agenda
If you use a paper agenda, write everything for each class in the corresponding pen color.
That way, instead of writing “chapter 1 math test” you can just write “chapter 1 test” in the math color. It seriously simplifies your agenda, makes it look like less work, and obviously looks so much prettier.
If you can’t tell, I love colorful pens 🙂

If you use a digital agenda or calendar app to keep track of assignments, the color coding continues there too!
When I used to use Google Keep, I had a note for each class in the corresponding color.
If you prefer a calendar, Google Calendar is also super easy to color code with this same system.
