5 Fresh Tips to getting Organized!

It is the start to a new year and that means New Years Resolutions!

Did you know the Top 3 Resolutions are the Eat Healthy, Save Money and Get Organized?

 

Here are my 5 Fresh Tips to starting out the new year on the right foot:

1) Develop Centers for your Food.

Group your foods together in the pantry — keeping like items together — for easy access and inventory assessment.  Getting organized with the many available products from Tupperware will keep your produce fresh for over a month, your staples fresh for over a year (yes, even cereal)  –  when you organize your life, you save, time, money, space and sanity !

*** Don’t forget the fridge!  Being Fridge Fresh makes a huge different too!

2) Give everything a Home.

Have a place to put your keys, purse, briefcase, and cell phone. Having a designated area will help you  and your family always know where they are and develop good habits for later in life.  If you have kids this is true for their play rooms as well.

For example, if you take it out, put it back; if you open it, close it; if you throw it down, pick it up; if you make a mess, clean it up; and so on.

3) Work at Home or Have a Home Office? Declutter your desk.

An clutter-free desk erases unnecessary distractions and helps keep your mind on tasks that need immediate attention. Keep only the items on your desk that relate to your current projects.

For me, I find if I take everything that has piled on my desk and place in a box, I am able to start my new day (and year) FRESH.  Then each day I take 5-10 Minutes to give what is in the box a home until it is empty.

4) Use one calendar.

There is  saying, ‘the man who wears two watches, never knows the correct time.’ The biggest mistake people make when using planning calendars is to have one for personal, another for the office, and yet another for the family. Keep personal, professional and family items on one calendar. It will help to eliminate scheduling conflicts.  Google Calendars are great for everyone to have their own calendar on a master calendar and it updates all at the same time.

5) Put things away each day and end it on a good note

Take time to put things back where they belong. Put things back immediately after you’re finished with them or set up a 15-minute appointment with yourself to put things back at the end of each day. Save your easiest tasks for the end of each day. You’ll be able to complete them, and end each day on a positive, rewarding note!   This includes organizing the thoughts in your head –  a Gratitude Journal you jot in every night can make a huge impact on your start each day.
