Easy Organization Tips

 

Before I give you some of the best organization ideas for Bullet Journals, here are some simple organization tips that are easy to put in place and will make a big difference in your life. 

  • Write everything down. Even if you think you have a fantastic memory, it can be very easy to forget something. 
  • Have a place for everything… and keep everything in its place. This goes for everything, from notes, plans, paperwork and shoes.
  • Create EASY systems. Only create systems that you can follow easily, otherwise they will end up ineffective. 
  • Declutter first. This goes for your mind and emails as well as your home and life. There is no point trying to organize a mess. 
  • Share the load. Delegate jobs, share your systems and involve those around you. 

The best way to do all these easy organization hacks is by using a Bullet Journal.

I actually have two journals. One is for things I like to keep personal such as personal goals and habit trackers, as well as password.

The other is one that’s kept in the home for everyone to see. This one makes sure everyone has access to chore lists, to-do tasks and a family calendar.

Find a system that works best for you and your lifestyle.

You may want a personal Bullet Journal, then a work journal? It may also take a little time for you to get your organization system just right.

Don’t be afraid to experiment, try new things and get rid of those systems that are not working as well as they could.
