    Three tips from Bneato!

    YOU JUST HIT THE JACKPOT!! IN OTHER WORDS, YOU JUST PURCHASED A BAN.DO AGENDA. Well, NOW WHAT?! GETTING ORGANIZED CAN BE PRETTY DAUNTING, WHICH IS WHY WE RECRUITED BAN.DO GIRL GANG MEMBER, BETH PENN. SHE'S THE FOUNDER OF BNEATO BAR, A KICK-BUTT TEAM OF PROFESSIONAL ORGANIZERS WHOSE JOB IT IS TO KICK CLUTTER TO THE CURB! WE ASKED BETH TO GIVE US HER GO-TO TIPS on HOW TO stay organized using a BAN.DO AGENDA. HERE'S WHAT SHE HAD TO SAY: 

    OH HEYYYY! I AM ONE OF THOSE GALS THAT LOVE TO NERD OUT ON ALL THINGS BACK-TO-SCHOOL—ESPECIALLY WHEN IT COMES TO AGENDAS. I CANNOT GET ENOUGH OF THE FRESH, OPEN PAGES, JUST WAITING FOR ME TO PUT COLORED PENCIL TO PAPER AND ORGANIZE IT ALL TO A-T. THE BAN.DO 17-MONTH AGENDA IS ALL KINDS OF AWESOME FOR KEEPING SCHOOL WORK AND PERSONAL PRIORITIES IN SYNC. THE BEST THING ABOUT THIS AGENDA IS YOU CAN CUSTOMIZE IT FOR YOUR NEEDS. SINCE I LIKE ALL THINGS COLOR-COORDINATED, HERE ARE MY FAVORITE WAYS TO PUT THIS AGENDA TO WORK;

    • STICK WITH A FEW COLORS TO HELP CATEGORIZE YOUR LIFE. HOW ABOUT DIVIDE IT UP INTO SECTIONS LIKE; SCHOOL WORK, PERSONAL LIFE AND WERK TIME (AKA WORK). THAT WAY, AT A GLANCE YOU CAN SEE WHAT YOU HAVE GOING ON AND EASILY SLIDE INTO YOUR WEEK.
    • HERE’S A NEW MANTRA FOR YOU; “STICKY NOTES ARE MY BEST FRIEND.” I LIKE TO SUGGEST USING STICKY NOTES FOR INFORMATION THAT MAY CHANGE ON THE AGENDA (SINCE COLORED PENCILS CAN’T BE ERASED, sticky notes ARE LIKE HAVING AN ERASE BUTTON). THE SKY IS THE LIMIT ON HOW YOU MIGHT UTILIZE STICKY NOTES WITH YOUR AGENDA BUT HERE ARE A COUPLE OTHER OPTIONS; EXTRA TEXT THAT ISN’T AS SEXY AS YOUR TO-DO’S SUCH AS; BIOLOGY PAGES TO READ OR THINGS YOU NEED TO WRITE DOWN QUICKLY BUT DON’T HAVE A PERMANENT HOME YET IN YOUR AGENDA).
    • AND BECAUSE YOU’RE PUTTING IN A LOT OF EFFORT (I MEAN SCHOOL IS HARD WORK), UP THE FUN LEVEL EVEN MORE AND UTILIZE THE BAN.DO STICKERS. I LIKE TO THINK OF THEM AS A ’NOTIFICATION’ IN STICKER-FORM THAT HELPS CALL OUT ALL THE FUN THINGS YOU HAVE PLANNED. THAT WAY, WHEN YOU’RE ALL, “OMG, I HAVE A LOT ON MY TO-DO LIST,” YOU WILL EASILY BE ABLE TO SEE AND LOOK FORWARD TO THE EXTRA SPECIAL STUFF PLANNED THROUGHOUT YOUR WEEK.

    THE GREAT THING ABOUT AGENDAS IS THERE ARE SO MANY WAYS TO USE THEM FOR YOUR ORGANIZING NEEDS; BUT THE ONE THING THAT REMAINS CONSISTENT; CROSSING THINGS OFF A LIST; THAT IS THE ULTIMATE GOAL AND KINDA MY FAVORITE THING TO DO IN THIS WORLD. HAVE FUN ORGANIZING YOURS!!

    So NOW THAT YOU HAVE BETH'S TIPS, WE WANT TO SEE YOU PUT HER WORDS INTO ACTION. SNAP A PIC OF YOUR BAN.DO AGENDA ON INSTAGRAM AND HASHTAG #OMGBANDOAGENDA. IF WE LIKE WHAT WE SEE, WE COULD FEATURE YOUR PHOTO ON OUR INSTAGRAM FEED. AND MAKE SURE YOU CHECK OUT BETH'S WEBSITE: BNEATO BAR! AND one last thing...MAKE SURE YOU'RE FOLLOWING @bneatobar ON INSTAGRAM.

    Build Your Dream Desk!

    say hello to your ultimate dream desk! it’s your “i want my desk to look like that!” happy place that’s totally and completely y-o-u. it’s perfectly organized or perfectly messy, and piled with stuff you looooove. and we know that you dream really, really big, so we’ve gone all out to help you build the dreamiest space on the planet! 

    but first, coffee! after all, you are VERY busy, and busy people need caffeine. we revamped our fave hot stuff thermal mugs (disco, anyone?!) so you can stay fueled and fancy at your desk and on the go! 

    now that you’re caffeinated, why don’t you plan a ton of awesome adventures with a little help from our #omgbandoagenda? and once you’ve got your ban.do agenda, customize that thing! light up your big events in all the pretty colors with our hot spot highlighters, and mark important pages with our sticky note set. these stickies are so cute and complimentary (hey hey hey, you can do it!)

    stand out in a sea of emails with our hey girl hey greeting card set. send one to your bff, your mom, chris pratt, yourself... and seal it with a sticker!! all those notes got you feeling inspired? good! grab a girl talk pen set (hello, holographic!) and pour your genius thoughts into our new and improved rough draft notebook — now sporting a hard cover and gold spirals! — or a slim and sleek good ideas notebook set. all our notebooks have a bright centerfold waiting for you inside, and are decked out in the coolest designs. pick your favorite... or, let’s be real: favorites! 

    when you did your best and it’s time to put down your pen, stash it in a get it together pencil pouch along with a tiny unicorn, a couple of ring pops, and lip gloss — or whatever else you might need in a pinch. tuck love letters, magazine articles, and dance moves in our get it sorted file folder set, which also comes in some really pretty patterns, with fun messages inside! label ‘em, stack ‘em, and voila! you’re instantly organized. 

    at the end of a long day, kick off your heels, put up your feet, and pour yourself some bubbly. while you’re at it, slip an it’s the drinks talking coaster under your glass, clutch for catching spills. this is your dream desk, after all!!!
