Start the New Year Right By Organizing Now

Organizing during the holiday…it’s practically an oxymoron, right? I know with all the whirlwind that leads up to the first of the year, the last thing we typically think about is organizing. However, with the New Year just days in front of us, you may want to consider how to make the last week stretch a homerun.

Here are a few things that I believe are helpful. And, really, these can lead you into the New Year with a plan. It may sound simple but I like to plan on a calendar. My plan consist of having both an immediate calendar and a long term calendar.

My immediate calendar consist of things that I need to complete leading up to the beginning of the year. This may be items like “attend Aunt Mary’s party” or “purchase new basketball shoes for my son’s end of year tournament”. It could also include tasks like packaging the receipts that I need for my current year’s taxes to ensure they are separate from anything that I will be tracking during the upcoming year. Either way, you get the idea.

My long term calendar consist of items that I plan to complete in the next month to six weeks. This includes items such as; inventory my product line or replace any of my tools that may be wearing out or need updating. Other areas of focus could be organizing my suite or even repainting it.

I typically ask myself two questions when determining which list an item should go on. First, is this an issue of urgency that has a timeline for completion? If the answer is “yes” then I place the task on my immediate calendar as long as it must be completed prior to the end of the year.

The next question that I ask myself is “what level of importance does this item have?” If the item is important but not urgent, I place it on my long term calendar.

For me, being disciplined enough to go through this simple exercise helps to alleviate stress as well as keep me on track. Look at this as a gift to yourself. This week, take 20 minutes for yourself and make note of the items that are urgent and important, then designate them on to the appropriate calendar. And most important, don’t forget to have a wonderful holiday!

The Ultimate Guide to Organizing Your Beauty Products

Ugh, spring cleaning. That about sums up our sentiment toward a seasonally specific mandate to go through all the stuff that’s been collecting dust since the last time you swore you’d get rid of it (a.k.a. January 1). And when you’re a beauty editor, all that stuff quadruples: Night creams magically find a home in your desk drawer, lipsticks take up most of the real estate on your vanity, and sheet masks take the place of actual documents in your filing cabinets. (Hard life, we know.) We called upon Homepolish, a company of by-the-hour interior designers who are basically small-space masters, to help us organize our beauty products, among other things.

The Key To Organizing Your Life Is In These 9 Simple Steps

Just the thought of getting organized is enough to send the even most chaos-averse among us into a tailspin. But if you can push past the heavy sighs and long groans that often bubble up at the words “plan ahead,” you’ll find that a set of weekly organizational goals aren’t as hard to accomplish as they seem.

Behold, the baby steps that will help you do it.

The Goal: Make The Bed Daily

make the bed

The Shortcut: Eliminate The Extras
While throw pillows are adorable, too many can make the process of making the bed longer than it needs to be — and nobody has time for that. Another time-saving trick: Ditch the top (or flat) sheet if you don’t use it, so you have one less layer to worry about.

The Goal: Organize The Closet

The Shortcut: Buy Matching Hangers
Don’t worry about making those “keep,” “donate,” and “throw out” piles just yet. Before you can tackle the contents of your closet, tackle the way it’s set up. Streamlining your storage is one of the easiest ways to start.

The Goal: Keep The Bathroom Clean

straighten your bathroom

The Shortcut: Invest In Towel Racks And Hooks
Nothing (nothing) makes a bathroom look messier than a wet towel heaped in the corner of the floor or slung over the door. Designating a place for it will make a world of a difference.

The Goal: Keep A To-Do List

become a list person

The Shortcut: Buy A Notebook
Carrying around a place to jot down tasks and ideas throughout the day will put you well on your way to becoming the organized person you always knew you could be.

The Goal: Eliminate Clutter

The Shortcut: Assign A Spot For The Keys And Mail
Rome wasn’t built in a day, and all the odds and ends around your house definitely won’t find a home overnight. Start by picking a place to at least put the first things you always carry in your door on a daily basis.

The Goal: Grocery Shop Smarter

The Shortcut: Keep A Meal Plan On The Fridge
Going to the grocery store without a plan isn’t only overwhelming, it can quickly get expensive as well. Plan your meals in advance to save time and money. Or, at least, keep a list of things you need as you run out.

The Goal: Clean The Kitchen

The Shortcut: Clear Your Sink Of Dirty Dishes
What wet towels are to the bathroom, dirty dishes are to the kitchen. Letting them pile up gives the entire room a cluttered vibe. Make it a point to clear them up as you use them.

The Goal: Keep Dirty Laundry At Bay

tackle the laundry

The Shortcut: Quit Folding Your Underwear
Believe it or not, you can actually take your organizing habit too far. And folding your underwear when there are other staples to be hung and put away (like your shirts) is a prime example.

The Goal: Leave On Time In The Morning

leave on time

The Shortcut: Choose Your Outfit The Night Before
For most of us, it’s probably painful to think about the minutes (and maybe hours) we’ve wasted standing in front of the closet wondering what to wear. Having decided before bed will free up time and mental energy in the morning.
