How to Organize Your Life, and Keep It That Way!

 

The kids need to get new shoes for school. The car needs a service. The kitchen tap is broken and you forgot when the plumber is coming to fix it! Does this sound like you? With so many things happening in your daily lives it can be hard to keep up with what you’re doing and what needs to be done. If you’re looking for a reprieve, you’ve come to the right place!

Get Online!

One of the best and most convenient ways to get your life organized is to take it online – and not the social media kind of online. If your struggle is more around what you need to get from the store, or what your kids’ school supply requirements were, signup for an online note taking service that can let you take notes and access them anywhere you are. One of the great advantages of these services is that you can add notes on the fly – say for example you’re at your child’s dance class and the teacher reminds you to get a ‘pink, size 5 pair of ballet shoes with a green flower on them’. You can quickly add this very specific item to your list right there and then and check it off your digital list when you’re at the mall.

Have the Work Done for You

Having trouble getting to the grocery store or find that you’re constantly getting home and realizing you forget some vital items? You’re not alone. Look for a reputable service such as Peapod that can do the hard work for you and take your grocery order online via your smart phone and have it ready to be picked up without you having to leave your car! These are the kinds of services that can speed up your daily errands.

Assign Your Tasks

You may have heard the word ‘delegate’ thrown around in an office, but that doesn’t mean it can’t apply to your life. If your kids have an important date coming up or a special requirement before class, put them in charge of it. Take some time to show them how you yourself manage their daily tasks and give them the opportunity to do it for themselves. Not only is this a great learning experience for them, it’s one less item that you have to think about as you rush around.

With just these three great tips you will be well on your way to reducing stress and ensuring your daily life runs a little smoother. Remember, they only work if you stick with them, so don’t be afraid to really give them a try and see how beneficial they can be.
