How to Stay Organized in 2018

Hello and welcome back! I hope you all have had a wonderful winter thus far. I’ve been taking a short break from blogging and social media to really enjoy my break from school and spend time with my family. So much has happened this year and I can’t wait to see what 2018 will bring!

As you guys know, I love Sundays. Sundays are my day to hit the restart button and get ready for the upcoming week. So, how perfect is it that this New Year’s Eve is on a Sunday, and New Year’s Day is on a Monday!? I find this time of year so motivational. People are so happy and excited for the potential a new year brings.

I love reflecting at the end of a year and to think about what I want from the next. For me, staying organized in all aspects of life really helps me succeed. Today I wanted to share a few things that help me stay organized throughout the year!

My number one thing that helps me stay organized is my planner. I work a full time job, I’m a student, a blogger, a daughter, a sister, a girlfriend, dog mom, (you get the idea – I’m SO busy!) Having a planner helps me on days when I feel like I’m in a whirlwind. I can sit down and look at what is happening in my life. At the beginning of each semester in school, I write down the dates for the big assignments in my planner, so if I’m trying to make plans, I can plan accordingly. You can find planners pretty much anywhere. I always like having a planner with a fun or motivational saying on it. I found this really cute one at TJ Maxx.

Another thing that helps me keep myself on track is making lists. I’m a list person. I love making to do lists and crossing things off as I go. I feel so accomplished! I make a weekly list for the big things in my life and I write daily to do lists every night so I go to bed thinking about what the next day will be like.

  1. Good video! I’m excited to go get my planner now. I like your idea to have the day list be smaller, like read, take a walk, etc. I often don’t think of these as part of my to-do, but they are an important part of a happy life.
    Thanks for the meal planning tips. I save a lot of money on groceries if I shop once with a plan instead of lots of times at the last minute.
    As for excitement for the coming year, I’m excited about getting my work more organized so I can have more free time!

    1. I like writing down the smaller things for each day so I don’t forget to do things that are important to me. It’s fun crossing them off and remembering that I made time for myself that day. I’m excited to be organized and have more free time too!
