7 Steps to an Organised Life

Getting and staying organised is not a mystery although it can seem like that to some people.
All it takes is a few basic rules and then, of course, you need to do those things consistently.
Put these steps into place and you'll have an organised home and office in no time: 1.
A place for everything and everything in its place
Have a designated place for every single thing, especially before you buy it.
When you're still in the store, ask yourself, "where will this go?" and if you don't know, don't buy it.
2.
Keep your systems simple
Nobody is going to follow a 10-step plan for sorting laundry when they can just toss it into a basket.
If you keep your systems simple, you have a higher likelihood of success.
3.
Store items where they are used
Store coffee mugs near the kettle and plates near the stove.
In other words, keep things where you use them.
If you use scissors in the kitchen, bathroom and study, then have a pair in each room.
4.
One in, one out
Or better still, one in, two out! Seriously though, if you buy 3 new T-shirts, get rid of at least 3 of your oldest, ugliest T-shirts.
5.
Write everything down
A blunt pencil is better than a sharp mind.
The key to an organised mind is getting it all down.
You don't have to get fancy; a plain and simple lined notebook will do just fine.
6.
Labels are king!
Once you've organised an area of your home, how will you know what's there? Label everything - your shelves, storage boxes, drawers, etc.
For children who can't read, use pictures on the front of the drawers or storage boxes.
7.
Use every minute
We often wait until we have an hour to tackle a project.
Don't wait.
Use 5, 10 or 15 minutes whenever you can find some time.
A few minutes a day in each of your major areas equals an organised life.
Don't get overwhelmed - implement just one step in a room before moving onto the next.
