5 simple ways to become the world’s most organised person

If you need some pointers in how to make your days run a little smoother then allow us to help you! They say the key to success is organisation, and they may have been onto something, we hate to admit…

A little effort on a Sunday evening goes a long way in making your working/study week go a lot smoother.

1. Paperwork
As we enter adulthood, we accumulate more and more paperwork. Not only this but we take control of our own finances, insurance and medical issues. To make this a little easier, invest in some organising folders and keep everything together, rather than in a bundle under the TV.

2. Clothes
Picking out outfits in the morning can be one of life’s hardest decisions. You pick a skirt and then realise the only top that goes with it is in the wash so you’re back to the drawing board. On a Sunday, take a half an hour to open your closet and create five outfits. Place them together on a hanger each and hey presto – five outfits done for Monday to Friday. We think that deserves an extra ten minutes in bed, don’t you?!

3. Cleaning schedule
To keep your home looking and smelling clean and tidy, make a simple schedule that will ensure each room gets attention at least once a week.

4. Meals
Again, a little effort on a Sunday will go a long way for the week. By making a batch of granola or a large soup/stew, you can easily have breakfast and lunch or dinner set for the week. That way, you will only have one meal to prepare every day. Relief! If you’re really dedicated on the rest day, you could get it all done…The freezer is your friend! 

5. Diaries and calendars
If you are the type of person who forgets what day you are meant to meet your friend and accidentally make other plans – this is for you. Hang a calendar in your kitchen and circle days you have plans and what they are. Equally, keep a diary and make lots of lists of things that need to be done each day. Even if you don't have a busy schedule. nothing quite beats looking at a completed list at the end of a day! Even if it just says "Eat Oreos"…
