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 […]

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 […]

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?

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 […]

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 […]

Do you ever feel like you are more stressed/disorganised/overloaded than ever, and start comparing your present life with your past, or with the lives of others, only to come out firmly at the bottom of the pile? This can certainly hold very true for getting organised – you can feel like everyone else is doing […]
Planning what goes where in your home, whatever its size or shape, will ensure that it works for everyone who lives there – and the lives that they lead. It is also key to having a more organised home, and therefore a more organised life. If you know where things live in your house, then […]
It’s all very well thinking about getting more organised, but when it comes to actually getting started – where should you start?
So many of us strive for a perfectly organised home – but do any of us know what that really looks like? It’s really hard to describe!
Having things that we love around our home is one of the pleasures of life, but saving them for best only is one of the few mistakes that I think we are all making to some extent in our lives.
Have you found loads of information and books on organising, but just not known what to do about it all? There is so much out there on how to do this and that, and what works for people. But you need to know (especially when it comes to getting organised!) how to quickly and easily […]
I was recently asked on my Facebook page a great question by a reader – and that was whether a maybe pile was OK to have when decluttering your home. When I wrote the post about how to declutter your home, and gave you the free category printables so that it made sorting your stuff […]
