When I organise any space in a home, the aim is to always make that space work better. This fundamentally means to make things as easy as possible to use. That means easy to see what you have, easy to grab what you need, easy to maintain and easy to put back. If your things […]
Wanting to do something and actually getting the motivation to get it done are very different things. You may have the longing to get your home sorted (more organised, rooms decorated etc…) but the key to actually getting up and doing it is to have the drive to get you started. That’s where motivation comes […]
I write a lot of posts about how to get more organised, how to simplify life, and how to generally make things easier at home – that’s the theme of this blog after all! – but I wanted to take a little time out today for a slightly different post
I was sent this infographic the other day and liked it so much that I wanted to share it with you today. It’s all about small spaces and what you can do to help keep them more organised, which I get asked about a lot (and intend to write more on – watch this space!).
It’s so important when it comes to organising your home that you look at your home as it currently is. Working out what works can give you so many clues as to how to change that which doesn’t. Most of us like looking at other people for inspiration – whether you scan magazines, read books, […]
Are you forever finding new ways to sort things in your home? Finding the best storage solutions? Tackling how to fit more into every square inch? Do you need to?! It’s a question that we can sometimes forget to ask, especially if we try to get organised before we declutter (something my ADORE method wouldn’t […]
However much I love to live in an organised home (for so many reasons!) I am only human, and I tend to run a mile if anything takes too much time or effort on my part to do (see my “Why organised people are lazy” post from a while ago) – however good it looks!
Making it as easy as possible should be your number one priority when thinking about the how and where of storage in your home – and this is the reason why…. The need drives you on… When you set out to get a space organised, it’s usually because there is an issue in that […]
I often get asked whether there is a secret formula as to how to organise your life. If there is a simple answer to being organised and staying organised. Unfortunately there isn’t some quick fix or easy remedy to get things sorted, but there are key things that really make all the difference if you […]
Have you ever wondered why some people are more organised than others? Why they seem to get everything done without breaking a sweat each day? This post aims to help identify what daily habits organised people do that help them to be in control of their time, their homes, and their lives. Hopefully there are […]
I love reading about getting organised. Getting lots of different peoples perspectives can be really refreshing and I always end up learning something new that I can put to use in my own home which is a bonus! I wanted to share some of my favourite organising books with you that I have in my […]
Are you a perfectionist? This post is all about trying to aim for perfect and how this can work against you in your life if you’re not careful. As a “recovering perfectionist” myself this is something very close to my heart, so I hope that if this rings true for you, these words help you […]
This post is all about planning – why planning isn’t a dirty word, and how it can really help to create less stress and more productivity in your daily routines. It can help you to embrace planning and create plans that work for you so you can live a life a little more stress free.
We all have days where, no matter what we do, motivation just doesn’t come. A TO DO list longer than your arm looms, but nothing gets done, and it’s a horrible feeling. So, how can we overcome the lack of motivation we all get from time to time?
Following on from part 1 earlier this week, here’s the second and final installment of organising tips for you to take a look at. As with the other set, there are LOADS here, so feel free to have a read and see which ones take your fancy first. Getting organised is all about doing what […]
While meandering around Facebook tonight as I regularly do (finding articles to share with you mostly!) I happened across a decluttering article based around a new organising book from Japan that’s creating a stir around the world – it’s called The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying
This blog is, (as you’d expect!), packed full of organising tips for every different area of home and life – so I thought it was about time I put together a list of all these tips so that you can dip in and out of them whenever you want to try something new, or need […]
If you have read this blog for any length of time, or are a follower on Facebook or Pinterest, you will be more than aware of my love of quotes! As a result of this love, I often create pictures using quotes that I love, for you to gain inspiration and motivation for your organising […]
Organised people are lazy. No question about it in my mind at all. There – I’ve said it. Surprised? You shouldn’t really be – you see I’m not being rude here at all – after all I count myself amongst the organised (most of the time at least!), and being lazy is good when you […]
Today’s post is all about the opposite of a TO DO list – the DONE list – and why it is arguably more important and better for you than your TO DO list. TO DO lists are always there telling us what we haven’t as yet done, what we may not be finding we have […]
As you are more than aware by now, I love a good quote! As such, for today’s post I have pulled together a selection of motivational quotes that I think really help to get your mindset in the right place to tackle things that you may have otherwise been procrastinating over for a while now.
