10 top tips on how to be well organised


Give everything its own space – and stick to it.
If you can clearly see where something belongs, you’ll put it there. Whereas if everything is in a jumble in your room you’ll just go along with it. Create a system!

If you don’t need it, bin it
Holding on to things you don’t need will just create clutter, and it’s very hard to be organised when you’re surrounded by clutter!

Keep important documents in one place
Bills, birth certs, tax documents – all these things get lost very easily but are very important. Keep them all in the same place so you remember where they are.

Storage boxes
If you’re short on actual storage space you can always get clear plastic boxes and use them instead. At least everything will have somewhere to go when you’re finished with it.

USE your calendar
It’s not just there as a decoration you know (though Mr. June is looking VERY well). Make use of your calendar so you don’t forget important dates.

Make lists
We all love making lists, don’t we? They’re good stress relievers too because once you have it down on a list you don’t have to keep mentally reminding yourself of what you have to do!

Get a good handbag
They’re getting bigger everyday, so it’s easy to lose things in the depths of your handbag. Having one with different sections is a good idea as you can designate areas, and you won’t spend ten minutes looking for your purse when you’re at the check out!

What are your three most important tasks?
Identify the top three things that you absolutely have to get done in one day. Prioritising is the key to success people!

Learn to say no
If you find that your to-do list keeps getting longer because of requests from other people, learn to say no. You need to be aware of you limitations, and it’s nothing to feel guilty about.

Do it now!
Stop procrastinating! If it can be done today, do it today. Obviously don’t stress yourself out, but if you find yourself putting things off just because of laziness, then give yourself a mental slap, get up off the sofa, and Get. It. Done.
