3 Tips To Get Organized This Year

Ready to get organized this year? Here’s 3 tips to help

This is the time of year that everyone will be getting organized for the new year.Organizing their homes, life, careers and anything else that we can get in order.Organizing has been an ongoing process for me, daily, weekly, monthly and yearly, I work at organizing my home.

Here are 3 Tips I use when it comes to organizing and I’m sure you can add to this list.

1.Take on a home organization challenge.There are many organization challenges going on right now. The advantages of joining these challenges…

You get expertise from experts that are pros when it comes to organizing their homes.
You don’t have to do the hard work of planning where to begin and how.

2.Use what you have.I’m an advocate for using what you have.We often think that we have to go out and buy everything new in order to get organized, but if we begin with what we have first, we’ll save money while getting organized.After we’ve used up all of our resources then if there’s some organizational items we need we can go out and buy them.

3.Be REALISITIC.Everyone wants to be a minimalist, BUT you may not be a minimalist.You may need to create and stick to a cleaning routine in order to get your house in order.Of course we can all do some purging and changing our hoardish ways.

Planners I’m Using in 2017 #ListSubjectToChange

It’s Personal

Give me a reason to buy a new planner and I’m down!First up on my list of planners to use for 2017 is The Happy Planner. I’ve been using the Happy Planner for a couple years now and it’s one of my favorites. The price is good cause I refuse to pay a lot for a planner… I refuse!The Happy Planner’s layout is appealing and you’re still able to alter your layouts without any predesign hinderances. Once I catch a good sale on the new covers they have out, I’ll purchase one to give my planner a binder style look.

Keeping up with important dates, appointments, meals and bills.

I’m using The Happy Planner this year for what I’ve used it for from the beginning, as a personal planner.Keeping up with important dates, appointments, meals and bills.Although I’ll be using another planner for blogging, I still keep important dates in my happy planner to make sure I don’t conflict with important dates.

Taking Care of Business

I’m also excited because in conjunction with my Happy Planner I added a new planner to my repertoire \0/. At the end of last year I picked up the recollections planner when they had them 60% off.My purpose for this planner is to use as my blog planner. I will not mix my daily task, meals, agendas etc. in this planner.Strictly blogging.

Isn’t she gorgeous?!

I chose the gold design with gold rings and added this adorable pom pom puff. The inside layout is perfect because this is the large planner and it has the horizontal weekly layout.

 

I haven’t used a horizontal weekly design in years with the exception of the inserts I created for my ARC planner.

 

I haven’t used a horizontal weekly design in years with the exception of the inserts I created for my ARC planner.I’m thinking the horizontal layout is going to give me room to jot down notes as well as brainstorm for upcoming blogposts.

if loving a planner is wrong, I don’t wanna be right

Lastly, although this list is subject to change after all I can’t seem to go an entire year using the same planner.Not sure what’s wrong with me, but if loving a planner is wrong, I don’t wanna be right.

I’m using my ARC planner to write blog post, goals and all that good stuff.So, let’s just say my Recollections Planner and the Arc Planner are a team 😉

Have you picked up a new planner this year or what planner are you using this year to keep your life in order?

Mama Minute: Kid’s Bathroom Caddy

Bathroom Traffic Jams

Since school has been back in session have you had traffic jams in your bathroom/s?Early mornings can be a bit stressful when you have multiple family members getting ready at the same time.Last school year I put together a bathroom caddy for my daughter and we’ve been using it ever since.

kid's bathroom caddy

Why A Bathroom Caddy

Everything in one place- Having a place where Jala can have all the essentials she need in the morning and or at night for bath time.

Easy to carry to bathroom- when the mornings get busy in our main bathroom the caddy makes it easier for my daughter to grab it and go to our other bathroom to wash her face and brush her teeth.

Help child become independent- Wonderful way to help your child become independent.

What Do You Need in the Bathroom Caddy?

The options are endless when it comes to what’s needed in your child’s caddy. However, here’s what we have in Jala’s.

1. A easy to carry caddy- I purchased this one from the thrift store on a half off day making it $1.
2. Towels- I like to keep clean face towels in the caddy and once she uses it she throws it in the laundry room.
3. Toothbrush
4. Toothpaste
5. Toothpaste Squeezer- this little gadget is optional, but I think it’s absolutely great for the kids.We have a hard time squeezing toothpaste out and the squeezer helps by not letting much go to waste.
6. Dental Floss

7. Mouthwash
8. Bodywash
9. Deodorant
10. Lotion

And again the possibilities are endless and depends on the needs and age of each child.

Multiple toothbrushes not caddies

The caddy is also great when you have multiple kids in the same age group. You wouldn’t need multiple caddies, but a tooth brush for each child. Below is a video you can watch with me sharing everything that’s in Jala’s bathroom caddy. Hope you received some ideas and inspiration to create your child their very own bathroom caddy.

Car & SUV Organization

So sorry to disappoint you if you came because you thought this was a ‘Pimp Yo Ride’ episode. Nope, just organizing my car. Recently my husband and I switched vehicles 🙁 He’s driving my car now and I’m driving his truck. It took me some months to get use to the idea of this being a permanent situation. So much so, that I refused to clean or organize it up until now.

If you’ve been trying to organize your vehicle, but don’t know where to begin? I suggest you start by writing down things that come to mind that’s needed as you drive your car. For instance, I’m driving somewhere and while in route I need kleenex. I add that to my car organization list and continue from there. On another trip I may need a drop cloth to haul something. That’s added to my list too. Before you know it you’ll have a list of things needed to help organize your car.

Check out the video below as I share how I organized the truck and hope you can find some ideas to help you organize your car or SUV.
