Laptop Organization

I've shared with y'all how I organize for school and how I organize my agenda, but I haven't shown y'all how I organize my laptop. My school provides each student with a MacBook Air that we use in class and for assignments. I've pretty much found out the way to organize that is the most effective for me so I thought I would share!

First of all I have three different windows so that way I can have multiple assignments on my screen at the same time. I also keep my calendar in full screen all the time so I have easy access to it!

I currently have this cute print that says Happy Fall Y'all as one of my backgrounds. I keep three different to do lists in my sticky notes (one regular to-do, one for homework, and one keeping track of long-term assignments). Also, on the side you can see my folders that I keep all of my documents in!

I have one folder for each class, a folder for the Service Committee I serve on, and then a folder for everything else! (the desktop image is a Gossip Girl quote- it doesn't randomly say Girl!)

How I organize each folder really depends on the class as some of my classes I don't have a lot of online work or we use Google Docs for everything! I typically keep the folders organize by chapter (or in the case of AP Lit- by book).

 In addition to using my Lilly agenda to keep track of dates, I also use iCal. I color-code according to class and activity!

How do you organize your laptop? Let me know in the comments!


  1. Your laptop is so organized! Mine is just a jumbled mess but hopefully I can use these tips to clean it out.

  2. I'm so jealous, my laptop is the biggest mess ever. This winter break I have to take a full day to organize everything perfectly, and your method is great so I may follow it!

    1. Thanks Ane! Trust me it definitely gets messy, but I'm slightly OCD about keeping it clean!

  3. Love this post! Mine is super messy- I definitely need to clean it off!
