Organized: A Start

I'll admit it: Getting and staying organized is hard sometimes. Pretty calendars and neat lists sound exciting and those alone keep me going for a few days but then what?

I've made a three-columned list that helps me take organizing one day at a time.
I laminated my list so that each day, I can write down my tasks (in dry erase marker) and erase them the next day and start all over again.

How do I categorize and prioritize between the three columns?

The must do column is pretty self-explanatory. Here I write down the tasks that I must complete for the day such as homeschooling, Bible reading and such.

The should do column is comprised of the things that, if I have extra time, I should do (to get a head start on the next day's must do list.) It is not mandatory to do the things on this list.

The can do list is a free time list. If I complete my must do tasks, I can indulge in using my iPod or some other extra privilege.

So far, this method has helped me manage my time better. Before, the day would go by and I didn't have time to fully complete my important tasks with excellence. Now, I prioritize and everything gets done.

How do your stay organized? What method(s) help you? I'll take all the help I can get:)
