There are tons of sorority stereotypes out there--the majority of which are nowhere near the truth.
But there's one I'm willing to accept on behalf of the sorority population.
We are addicted to our planners-
For good reason.

Trying to balance a sorority, a job, and a college education isn't an easy task.
With that said, a little organization goes a long way.
And aÂ lot
of organization changes everything.
Why Sorority Planners?
Once you get into the habit of writing everything down, your whole outlook on life becomes more organized and you feel more productive.
Before, I put everything in my phone.
But that doesn't work very well for me.
Mostly because the notifications pop up just like any other notifications do - and it's very distracting.
Having your to-do list written down in a planner forces you to put the phone away and get working.
Now, it does take a bit of time to adjust from your phone to written format, but it's very possible.
Why else do we love our planners so very much?
Allow me to enlighten you.
They Help You Budget Your Time
As mentioned before, sorority women have a lot to balance.
Having some way to map out your day allows you to manage your time wisely and fit everything into a busy (but organized!!) schedule.
Not to mention, with the start of a new year, it's the perfect time to pick up planning!
They Help You Remember Your Plans
As long as I can remember, I've always been one to forget plans (ironic, isn't it?).
If you're anything like me, having a visual map of my plans to reference is ridiculously helpful in remembering what needs to get done.
I'm a very visual learner, so if I look at something enough, it will become ingrained in my brain.
They Keep A Record of Everything You've Done
It's easy to forget when and where you did what with who, and how (try saying that five times fast).
Keeping track of your life in a planner allows you to have a record of your days at your fingertips!
They're Also Just Really Adorable
