Dec 042015


This time of year is very busy! Between regular blog posts, all the kids’ activities and preparing for the upcoming Christmas parties, I am extremely busy most days. Without an organizational system in place, my house and my mind would get very cluttered very quickly. Luckily, I have found a few ways to keep all my responsibilities and tasks in order. From a useful Charging Organizer Station to a family calendar, I’d love to share with you my 5 Awesome Tips to Stay Organized Every Day.

5 Awesome Tips to Stay Organized Every Day

  • Keep a to-do list notebook. I rely on my notebook every day. Whether I have a play date for the kids on a particular afternoon or I need to pick up some clothes from the dry cleaners, I always like to put my daily tasks on my to-do list. Maybe it’s my engineering background, but I really love being able to see all my chores for the day in front of me- and being able to cross them off as I complete them.
  • Update a family calendar. In addition to my to-do list, I also keep a monthly calendar to stay on top of all my responsibilities for the upcoming weeks. Particularly for blog posts that are due over the next few days/weeks, I love being able to glance at my calendar and visualize everything. I also add into my calendar things like doctor’s appointments, meetings at school, birthday parties, etc. This makes it so easy when I am trying to plan something out for a few weeks- I simply check my calendar and I can see the perfect time to schedule something!
  • Declutter regularly. Whether it’s my kitchen junk drawer or the kids’ closets, I always find that a regular decluttering is necessary to keep things in order. I like to take everything out, throw away expired/damaged items, and then place everything back, grouping like items together. By doing this on a regular basis, I keep everything neat & tidy and prevent these drawers/closets from getting out of hand over the long run.
  • Plan meals. Sometimes, I find it can be difficult to figure out what to make the whole family on short notice, especially when I want it to be nutritious and delicious. So I like to plan my meals in advance. This allows me to make sure I have all the ingredients necessary for a well-rounded meal in the house when I’m ready to make dinner.
  • Find a place for everything. This is probably my most important tip to stay organized. I find that it’s crucial for maintaining an organized space. One thing that has recently helped me keep all my everyday essentials in a dedicated spot is the Bamboo Stand and Charging Organizer with Extension from CE Supply Store. This multi-tasking organizer is designed to keep cell phones, tablets, remotes and more all organized together in one spot. There is actually enough space to hold 3 smartphones, a tablet, a laptop, Bluetooth speakers, a notepad & more! Isn’t that incredible?! I love that it has cubby holes for small office supplies, too. Check out all the storage this unit offers!

It also has a deep base that fits standard Charging Strips, along with smart cable management that keeps all those wires out of sight, which is perfect because nobody likes seeing all those cables! This Charging Organizer is perfect for a kitchen, an office or a family room- anywhere you need some more organization & storage for your gadgets! I love how this unit has powerful magnets to secure the lid and ensure stability during use. You can see the magnets here in this picture.
