Organize Your Life with the Nexus 7 and Moleskine Planners from Staples

Hi friends! I’m so excited to share my favorite new planning tools with you today – the NEW Nexus 7 Tablet and Moleskine Notebooks from Staples! What are your favorite tools to keep organized? I use a variety, from paper and pen to digital, on my laptop and now on the Nexus 7!

Moleskine Professional Notebook from Staples

By day I’m a project manager, so that means that I like to keep lists. And though I do this digitally, there’s also something about writing it down! A great notebook/planner is a MUST! Whether you’re planning out your family’s schedule, keeping track of things at work, or even planning out blog posts and making notes of blog to-do’s, Moleskine products have you covered!

Nexus 7 Tablet from Staples

Now on to the Nexus 7 review! I really like it! I was very interested in reviewing this product for a number of reasons. We have smart phones and larger tablets, but I have been on the market for a smaller, hand-held tablet that was more comfortable for reading and for portability. I’m just not going to toss our large tablets in my bag for on the go. And I was right about the Nexus 7! The 7-inch tablet was just what I was looking for. I have had it for the last couple of weeks and already I’m two books in (the blogging may suffer), and I’ve been able to take it with me everywhere. Which means, this is the PERFECT tool to keep organized!

So how do I use the Nexus 7 to stay organized? Well first off, it has all the social tools that I need to keep on top of the blog: Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and more. But there are also other apps that I’ve found that are already helping me to get more organized this Fall! Some of them are so great that I’ve put together a list, in case you’re on the hunt for Android organization apps!

    I use a combination of pocket-sized notebooks, basic iPhone apps like Notepad and Reminders and more advanced apps like Evernote and Dropbox.

  2. says

    I am an avid journaler and keep lots of lists in my notebook- which is currently a Moleskine notebook (watercolor notebook). I love all their products I have used their sketch books, graph paper notebooks, lined notebooks, etc., etc., their books are amazing and the binding is so sturdy and if you get the right type the pages are so smooth and thick. I’m a Moleskine fangirl so here is hoping I win this giveaway weee!

    I keep written “master lists” (mainly because I’m prone to forget if I don’t write something down immediately) plus I use my cell phone calendar for reminders, as well as appointments.

    Thanks for a chance at the giveaway.

  6. Sheltiemama says

    Honestly, I use plain old composition books more than anything else for organzing. My parents gave me a Nexus 7 for Christmas, and I call it My Beloved.

  7. Mellissa H says

    I still love my paper lists! However, I am adjusting to my android. I find it so helpful that I can sync my phone calendar with my computer. I use Google plus to back up my photos from my phone. I love it!

  8. Christine Smith says

    Congratulation to Bonny!
    I usually worked a lot on my PC and used Chrome for most times, and the best thing is there are so many wonderful extensions available for this great browser, the Google Task extension helped me a lot when listing To-Dos.

    Hi Kimberly, what a wonderful article! I’m particularly impressed that you have CamScanner on here, not many people know about it & it helped me get through PGCE as I had to give evidence in PDF format

    I’ve never heard of CloudOn, and I will be downloading that as soon I next pick up my Nexus 7, thanks for this amazing and concise article!
