The title of this post is a little ironic, considering my life is probably the most unorganised it's ever been. But we'll forget about that, pretend everything is totally fine, and crack on with the post.
Yeah? K? Cool. Thanks.
I'm the kind of person that at least needs to feel organised, even if I'm not. So sometimes it's the little things that, to me, make the biggest difference in keeping myself a little bit sane, and not running off to hide under my blanket to hide from everything that comes with being an adult. 'Cause who needs the stress?
So I thought I'd collate a little list of things that help me along on a daily basis.
2. Next, is to get yourself a diary. My memory can be terrible at times, so 'mental notes to self' aren't always the most efficient way of trying to get myself to do something. Particularly if it's something I don't want to do. Is selective memory a thing? If it is, I have that.
3. Basically, PLAN. I'm definitely a planner. I like to know exactly when things are, where they are happening, how it's gonna happen and what it is. I feel so much better if I have set plans in place, whether it's a work plan, a life plan, or just plans on the weekend.
I remember being sat in my GCSE maths class, when our teacher first came out with this absolute cracker of a quote; 'Failing to plan is planning to fail'. I can't remember how to use the sine rule to find the length of a side of a triangle, but I remember this. So at least there's that.
4. Budget. This is such a responsible adult thing to say, but honestly give it a try. Before you set yourself up a little budget, spend a week, or a few days noting down everything that you spend. And I'm talking everything. Every chocolate bar, every cup of coffee, every pretty notebook that you convince yourself that you need. You'll probably surprise yourself at just how much you do spend! I know I did! (Side note; would you guys be interested in a 'how to budget' blog post?)
How do you guys get organised?
