Being organised means you stress less, know where to find things and are prepared for a curveball if one happens to come your way. Some people are natural organisers however others struggle to coordinate effectively.
So which are you? Well if you can mentally tick of these seven signs you are one super organised person, but if not don’t worry it’s a great list to put you on track to your path to being organised.
1. Regularly decluttering
You’re far from a doomsday prepper or hoarder, rather you schedule regular dates in your diary to get rid of things you don’t need anymore. However it can be a daunting task, so if you’re not sure where to start take a look in your wardrobe for clothes that you haven’t worn in the past year. Just incase you’re finding it difficult to part with clothes, here some great ideas to help with your Wardrobe Spring Cleaning.
2. Always plan for tomorrow
Before you leave the office for the day or go to sleep you’ve already written a list of to-do’s for the next day so that when you wake up you can hit the ground running.
3. Label everything
You have labels on everything from shoeboxes to your filing cabinet. You will also probably have types of labels that you prefer such as Post It’s or multi-coloured tabs for easy recognition. Without a doubt you rarely have anything labeled miscellaneous, because after all everything has a place.
4. Buy less
You know what you have in your pantry and wardrobe, so impulse purchases aren’t an issue for you. You are also smart with your money and good at sticking to a budget. If you need help with budgeting, app-based Pocketbook is a great place to start to get your finances in order.
5. Coordinate calendars
You are never doubled booked for lunches and parties because you and your partner share a calendar and regularly update it. Syncing your calendars may seem scary at first, but rather a practical step that helps busy young families and couples plan their time more efficiently.
6. Routine and rituals
You have a regular morning and night routine which is executed daily (well at least on weekdays). You probably also regularly schedule in specific fitness times and date nights. Having regular routines allows you to wind down at night and in the morning efficiently get ready for the workday ahead.
7. Avoid problems
You’re the type of person that always carries an umbrella just incase it rains. But you’re also prepared for financial difficulties or any other unexpected or foreseeing problems.
So while it might seem to others that you sail through life, but really you are just super organised and should tap yourself on the back.
