Lil' Tips: Being Organised.

When I had this blog post planned, I'm not sure if I had anything in mind to say and now I'm quite lost for words (shocker). As a minor OCD person, being organised is what I love to do. In regards to work, personal life, social life or anything else - without a doubt, I'm always going to be organised about something. If you know me, I love a good list so why not share some organisation tips with you guys?

1. Colour Coding will be your best friend. I use this purely for my clothes as it makes it so much easier to put outfits together. Plus, if I'm looking for a blue skirt or a red top, it's pretty easy to find out exactly where it is. Bonus it makes the inside of your wardrobe look very pretty if you're that obsessed with visual aesthetics.

2. One thing at a time. I tend to not follow this rule as much as I should but when I do I get work done 10x quicker than when I jump from project to project. This is aimed more towards education or work environments, but I do guarantee that it is very effective when you finish one task completely before starting the next one.

3. Clearing out Storage comes in handy when the time is right. This can be done physically such as in your own home / personal space & online e.g. your laptop / phone. Personally, I despise having more than 200 pictures on my phone and I don't know why but an empty-ish photo album makes me so much happier than one with 1000+ pictures. I'm not saying to delete all your pictures all the time, but using a hard drive like I do saves you so much space for new pictures and memories instead :)

4. Everything has its own place, it doesn't just live on that chair. Everyone I know has that one chair where you just throw anything on it and hope that it doesn't pile up with junk when realistically it always does. I do it too, so I can't count myself out of this but it is SO EASY to pick up your clothes and either put it in the laundry or put them away. You'll thank me later when you have a chair to sit down and do your work on.

5. Weekly Organisers are super useful when used correctly! I use a year planner / diary to keep up to date with my week and to see if I've used the time in my days correctly. I find these to be really effective considering that I know what I'm doing with my week and this keeps me aware of my plans so nothing clashes with each other.

6. Keep Changing your lifestyle. Don't stick to the same routine 24/7 365 days a year. Switch it up by doing something different. I can't tell you what to do as we're not the same person who lives the exact same lifestyle. What I'm trying to say is that change is good and it can benefit you in many ways then one.

I'm the phone user on the right, what are you? ;)
