Today I will give you some useful tips on organising your life, and yes, I know not all of you are neat freaks, but that’s the great thing about these tips, they are for everyone, they are super easy and don’t cost you anything!
Tip no. 1
Make a list! This is so easy, but making a to do list for chores, a shopping list and even a to do list for homework can really turn your life around. If you want to go the extra mile you could even write down what time you’re going to do them.
Tip no. 2
Empty your room of rubbish. That’s right, clean your room. Grab a couple of garbage bags, turn on some sweet tunes and fill the bags up with all the trash in your room. If you have any clothes you don’t want anymore, donate them, if there is that present from your great aunt that you got for Christmas hiding in the back of your closet, donate it or give it away. There’s no point trying to be organised if the place where you sleep is full of junk!
Tip no. 3
Organise your mail. This includes post, email and any other kind of mail. If you don’t like having to read a newspaper that you’ve accidentally stepped on, or opening an envelope that’s been half-chewed by your dog, then your saving grace is a basket attached to your door, so when your post arrives it falls right into the basket. Genius! Another idea is to get some magazine holders or some small baskets or boxes and organise you’re post into separate sections, for example, bills, work, parcels, junk mail and newspapers. For your email, simply delete all the emails you have already read and delete all your spam and junk mail. Once that is done, colour code your emails with what they’re related to. For example, blue for work, pink for friends and red for spam and junk. Et voilà, a rainbow coloured inbox!
Tip no. 4
Clear your computer desktop. Clear your screen of unnecessary items, such as old photos and documents you no longer need. This will keep your screen tidy, but you will also finally be able to see your screen saver!
Tip no. 5
Label your outfits. For school and work, this is perfect, simply make a tag, saying one of the days of the week, and hang it on your clothes hanger with all your clothes, so in the morning all you have to do is take the outfit that you’ve already chosen! So simple yet so effective!
Tip no. 6
Tired of those meddly charging cables? Problem solved! Make a charging station for free using an old shoebox, an extension cable, a pencil and some pretty wrapping paper or spray paint. Punch holes with the pencil in the longest side of the shoebox, big enough for the cable to go through easily. If you wanted to wrap it, wrap it before making the holes. Next, do the spray paint. Make a bigger square shaped hole on one of the short sides big enough for the extension cable. Put in your extension cable and plug in your chargers. Close the lid and there you go, an instant charging station!
