I often think back to my school days, bewildered. How did I make it through twelve years of school? Honestly, I was one of the most unorganized people I knew. Often times, I couldn’t keep keep track of assignments, important papers, due dates, and occasionally even textbooks. I didn’t know the importance of organization.
Flash forward to my first year of college, August of 2015. I knew I needed to make some serious changes and improve my organization skills. Before I even started classes I bought binders, folders, notebooks, and a planner. Each subject had it’s specific binders and folders. Everything had it’s place and was even color coordinated. All assignments were written into my planner by course and due dates.
Things began to click.
Today, I organize everything; receipts, bills, important documents, anything you can think of. All things have their place, and I ensure they make it to that place. Planners have also become a huge part of my life. Every year at the beginning of the year, I go out and purchase a planner. I begin by writing birthday’s, and other important dates. As the year progresses, I write in appointments, as well as dates bills are due.
Organization is a vital part of life no matter what stage of life you are in. If you are a student, you can use organization to keep track of your assignments and due dates. As a working adult, you can utilize organization to be sure you don’t miss work meetings or important conferences. Lastly, as a mom you can list your appointments and play dates all in one place. No matter where you are in life, organization will simplify your life. Never miss a coffee date with your friend, forget an appointment, or forget what it is you need to do next Tuesday.
Organization is vital to an easy, stress less life. Having things labeled, put away, and decluttered will keep your mind at ease.
What are YOU doing to stay organized in a hectic life?
