How To Keep Organised In 2014

I decided to share a little lifestyle post for you all and try something a little different on my blog. Sorry this post didn’t go up sooner but hope you enjoy my tips on how to make 2014 more organised....

1.) I recommend WhSmiths A4 planner/diaries for writing everything down daily. Personally I find having everything in one place helps me keep organised. I write to do lists, peoples info and anything other you can imagine in these things. I’ve been using the same planner design for three years running. Click here to buy on WHSmiths online.

2.) Having a calendar can be really handy too for making note of important dates and events. I find the ones with a line for each day works best for me.

3.) I also keep a separate notebook for major projects where notes won’t fit into my ordinary planner. For example when I’m working to a client brief or planning an important event.

4.) Keeping your workspace clean and clear can be super important to keep your thoughts organised and less stressful.

5.) If you work from home or have your own office it can be fun to shop for cute storage and things to keep your personal space pretty and ordered. I find B&M have some lovely stuff in there homeware section. Also try Wilkinsons, WhSmiths and Next.

6.) Sometimes it’s important to be organised while you’re on the go. Maybe you are travelling on the train or are out; having a mini planner can be good or if you are a techie a iphone or ipad can be super useful. You can get some good deals on places like Amazon or Argos.

7.) Stay connected on the go can be super important. Having peoples phone numbers and details on hand may be essential. 

8.) Make lists. I am a huge list maker. Its so rewarding to tick things off a list and you can go back to lists to make sure theres nothing that you’ve missed that needs to be done.

9.) Have fun with organising whether it’s joining social networking sites, decorating/customising notebooks etc.

10.) Make a goal to make your life more organised. Then maybe you could set mini goals making sure they are realistic and achievable.

Hope I’ve helped in some way; please feel free to add your own ideas in the comments below :-)

Lots of love,
