January 2019 - Tips to Make Life a Little More Organized




"A time to say goodbye and a time to say hello. A time to bid farewell and a time to look forward. A time to let go and a time to learn new things, that is what happens when the New Year rings in." 
- Catherine Pulsifer

I've put together some simple tips to make life a little more organized.

Some might look at them as "resolutions" but I think it makes good sense, year round, to get a little more organized from time to time.



1. One in - two out rule!

This time of year is perfect for this rule.
For each new item you received as a gift or purchased for the home, find two things around the house that you don't use or need and get rid of it! This can apply to any time of the year but this time of year is great for reducing your holiday decorations and décor anything you didn't use this year, you probably won't use next year.

Remember to donate or create a yard sale bin - if you price them now, you just have to pull it out when you're ready to have the yard sale.

2. Labels

If you have a hard time getting family members to put things where they belong, labels are a great way to organize and help family members keep things organized.  Shelves, boxes and totes are great places to add labels. It makes it easier for putting things away and for finding them later.

3. Schedule

To make organizing easier, especially for the kids helping out, make a schedule of when you do what:

Laundry is Thursday nights; bathrooms are Saturday mornings; trash is Tuesday nights etc.

Even if you get off track throughout the year, a posted schedule makes it easier to get back to it.




4. Make time for YOU!

If you find time to be good to yourself, you will benefit in all areas of your life. You are no good to family, friends and co-workers if you are run down. Make time for you as part of your "organizing".




“Caring for your body, mind, and spirit is your greatest and grandest responsibility. It's about listening to the needs of your soul and then honouring them.”

Resources for Teaching Online

Many schools already use products such as Google Classroom, Brightspace from D2L or Blackboard Learn but these are just a few examples of the Learning Management Systems (LMS) currently available.
