Kill Jill is on a tight schedule!

Between working part-time, doing homework and having classes, I literally have to pencil friends in for a week in advance. I’m not even joking. I tell ya, it makes it hard to have spontaneous fun with the pals.

Reply to this post with your best idea for time management for college students and you could win a $25 gift card from BJ’s Wholesale Club. (This contest is open to US residents or anyone with a BJ’s membership.) Make sure to leave your name and email address so I know how to contact you in case you win!

This contest will close in 2 weeks, on October 9th, late in the evening. I’ll likely choose a winner that night and email the winner. The winner will have to provide their mailing address so I can personally send you a little note, along with the $25 gift card.

  1. Try to combine activities. If you are spending time at the laundromat, bring your psychology notes to study. If you are waiting in line for tickets to a concert, bring your biology flashcards to memorize.

  2. Definitely setting a schedule!

  3. (1) Don’t procrastinate long-term projects. Set goals of a certain amount of time each week to work on them so that you’re not trying to cram finishing it.

    (2) Set aside one night as “free” night, like Friday or Saturday night.

  4. 1) If you have to do a lot of rote memorization, those study cards that come on a ring are great. The smallest ones aren’t that much bigger than a USB drive (good for foreign language vocabulary); you can fit them in your pocket and bust them out whenever you have a free minute.

    2) Take advantage of small amounts of time. You don’t have to do your studying in blocks of four hours or more. Use that hour before work or between classes to study something that doesn’t require sustained attention.

    3) Don’t procrastinate big projects. You don’t know how long they will take, and you don’t want to be in the situation where you can’t get something done even if you pull and all-nighter or you need library resources at the last minute but now the library is closed because it’s the middle of the night.
