Top 10 Ways to Organize and Simplify Your Life

by Maria Gracia Join our newsletter to be notified when the newest Organizing Article is available. In the words of Henry David Thoreau, Simplify, Simplify. Here are the Get Organized Now!™ Top 10 ways to organize and simplify your life. 1. LESS IS MORE It's more important to have a few nice things that you truly enjoy, than to just have lots of stuff. Say goodbye to things that don't fit, are out of style or are unflattering. This goes for clothing, furniture, knick knacks, and other possessions you're not happy with. 2. CONSOLIDATE CREDIT CARDS Most stores take Visa, MasterCard and American Express. Pay off your other credit cards, and in the future use only one or two of these major credit cards. Or, if possible, use cash or your debit card for purchases. 3. COOK MORE Don't spend more time cooking. Just make more when you cook. Rather than cooking enough for one dinner, make enough for at least two dinners. Refrigerate and freeze the extra portion and you'll have another meal another night, with no extra work. 4. SCREEN YOUR CALLS Let your answering machine take all your phone calls, and return calls on your time. 5. DON'T SWEAT THE SMALL STUFF Don't allow trivial matters to aggravate you. If the milk spills, wipe it up and move on to more important things. 6. GET HELP Don't try to do everything yourself. Split up household responsibilities among family members. Delegate to your staff. Outsource projects, repairs and so on. 7. DON'T TRY TO REMEMBER EVERYTHING There's no need to store it in your memory. Write it down, and write it in one place so that you can find it easily. 8. WATCH TV ON YOUR TERMS If your favorite program isn't on at a convenient time, use your DVR and record it. Then, watch it when you want to--without all the commercials! 9. DON'T OVER-SCHEDULE YOUR CHILDREN Too many activities can cause a strain on your children, and you! 10. PLAN EACH DAY Spend 10 minutes each night, planning for tomorrow. You'll be focused and ready to take on the world each morning! Back to Organizing Articles Index
