5 top tips for getting organised

January 2018! New year, new month - and it actually started on a Monday which is perfect for everyone who 'starts on Monday' like me. I made 10 new years resolutions this year, one of which I thought I'd tackle today is getting my physical environment in order

Christmas has been and gone, and with it I've got lots of glorious new things that need a place to live in my room. I desperately need to get rid of a lot of stuff and stop hoarding too, so here are my 5 top tips if like me you need to start your spring clean very early

Top tips for getting organised


Inventory Everything
I don't know if it's just me, but whenever I decide to have a clear out I find things that I completely forgot I had! Fix this by using an inventory app on your phone like Sortly. As you're tidying your room take a picture, log where it is and you'll never forget again - this really helps me when I need to pack to stay anywhere I know what toiletries I've already got, I can easily pair outfit pictures together and know exactly where I've stored everything

Sell Sell Sell
One mans trash is another man's treasure! While you're decluttering make sure everything that can be sold is moved on to earn you a little bit of cash. There are ton's of places you can list items from Facebook's Marketplace to  Ebay, Gumtree to Music Magpie. List items and reward yourself for taking some organisational control

Konmari
Konmari is a tidying method that is the baby of Marie Kondo. It's a book full of tips for organising your life, but most importantly helping you reassess what's important. If you're a hoarder like me this is definitely worth a read! It made me have a proper think about things I've been keeping, whether they spark joy and whether they bring happiness

Pomodoro Time Blocking
Do you put things off? Do you have an ever growing list of things you'll get around to? A messy cupboard you'll tidy eventually... Today is eventually no more excuses! As humans we try and do everything at once, multi-tasking is a skill we pride ourselves on when really we need to be more focused. The Pomodoro technique gives you 25 minutes to complete a task, dedicate you full focus and attention on one thing and get it completed

Daily Upkeep
You're at the end, your home resembles that of an absolute neat freak and you've worked incredibly hard organising everything but this is not the end! Daily upkeep is required so you never end of drowning in mess again, simple things like putting your shoes away when you come home, making sure items are put back where they belong and constantly keeping on top of the serenity you now have in your home

How do you stay organised?
