Running around like a chicken with its head cut off? Can’t find that important document that you need TODAY? Or maybe your room is just so cluttered you can’t stand to look at it. What ever your case may be there are a few simple ways in which you can turn your life around to be organized, clutter free, and motivating to yourself. Then you’ll never lose that important document again!
Here are 8 ways on how to organize your life!
This is one of the first major steps to organizing your life! Separate items into piles of give away, trash, and keep. I would even split this up and do it for different areas of your house such as your closet one day, desk, living room, office, etc. That way the task won’t seem as big!
2. 10-Minute Cleanup
Most of us don’t have hours to clean each and every day, but a simple 10 minutes is all you really need. Set your time and head to the messiest part of your home. For me that’s my closet (I like to just throw things in there!). By spending just 10 quick minutes picking up that messy area you’ll realize the drastic difference it has!
3. To Do List
Whether you like your to do lists on an app, paper, or in your planner just write one! Start first thing in the morning or the night before so that you’re motivated and ready to get things done. A little tip is to do the hardest thing on your list first so that it is smooth sailing after that!
4. Keep a Small Notebook With You At All Times
Having a small notebook tossed in your purse or tote is the perfect tool to keeping yourself organized. Maybe you see a date for an event you want to remember, jot it down! Or if you’re like me and you blog I tend to randomly come up with ideas when I’m out and about. Having the notebook keeps all my ideas that were floating around on paper and easily accessible.
5. Budget You Money
Budgeting your money isn’t as scary as it sounds, I promise. Whether you’re in high school, college, or an adult, budgeting will organize your finances and keep you on track financially. I suggest using an app and online website, Mint. It’s simple and easy to use!
6.When You Take Something Out, Put it Back
Easy enough right? Then why don’t we do this enough? I’m guilty of it. I take out tons of items for crafting or my blog pictures and then just toss them on my bed then come bed time I just throw them on the floor till I need them next time. If I would have simply put them back in their boxes my room probably wouldn’t be as big of a mess!
7. Use a Planner
This is one of the most simple and basic ways to stay organized. Whether you’re in school, at work, or even an adult, a planner can work wonders for keeping you organized. It’s the perfect place to write down all of your important dates and hours so nothing is overlapped or forgotten.
8. Make a Meal Plan for the Week
At the beginning of each week sit down with a piece of paper and pen. Check out your cabinets and fridge to see what food you have and what you can make for the week. As you’re creating your list and you need more items make a grocery list which you can take to the store. By using a meal plan you are making use of everything already in your fridge and keeping yourself from buying unnecessary groceries, which saves you money!
Being an organized person isn’t a huge task to take on, by switching small things in your life one at a time you can organize your life quickly and effectively. I hope these 8 tips on how to organize your life helped you and inspired you to get organized!
