WELCOME TO THE “GETTING STARTED” CATEGORY…
It can be really daunting to start getting organised – overwhelm can set in all too quickly – so I’ve created some extra categories to help you find what you want. Simply click on one of the images below to go to posts on specific things OR scroll down to find all the posts about getting started altogether. Hope this helps!

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 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 […]
