An agenda is one of the best ways to keep your life organized. Jot down notes of things you need to accomplish in any given day such as laundry, grocery shopping or even working out. Place a box next to these tasks and give them a fat check mark when they are finished. You can also use an agenda to remember social events such as school engagements, work meetings or lunch/dinner plans. Keeping an agenda is a great way to keep your life organized as writing down duties will make you more likely to complete them.

This is one of the best habits to stay organized. Take fifteen minutes each day to clean up a different portion of your house. Whether it’s sprucing up the living room, moving the dirty clothes from your/your child’s rooms or wiping down the kitchen counters, 15 minutes is all you need.
Cleaning feels like a chore to so many because they dedicate entire days to solely cleaning/organizing and it gets boring very quickly. When it is less of a time commitment you are more likely to complete it. By the end of the week your house will look extremely tidy!
One thing I am guilty of is destroying my closet in a frenzy of getting ready in the morning. Planning your outfit ahead of time can prevent this destruction, however that is not ideal for every person’s life. When you are getting ready in the morning simply take the extra 30 seconds to hang that dress back up or put your makeup brushes back where they belong. It doesn’t take up much time and saves major time when you don’t have to go back and clean everything up at the end of the day.
Along with using an agenda, having a family calendar is a great way to keep track of everyone’s lives all in one place. Use different colors for each member of the family and include sporting events, school requirements and social gatherings. You can even include in a different color dates when bills are due like cell phone, cable and mortgage.
