I’m not at all about new resolutions when the New Year starts, but I’m really into getting more organized.
Resolutions aren’t really a thing for me, since if I want to change something in my life I’ll just do it all year long, but I won’t find something to change for the sake of the new year. On the other hand I decided around two years ago to be more tidy in general. So now when the new year comes, I do or get certain things to begin the new year with a fresh start.
Let me show you what keeps me organized all year long !
✘ GET A PLANNER ON YOUR WALL
I always get a new planner to start the year. Last year I had a weekly planner, and this year I’m going to try out a monthly one ! I write down exams, appointments, deadlines, projects… wall planners are great because with just a glance you know what’s coming up for the next weeks, that way you’ll be able to anticipate if anything comes up !

✘ REORGANIZE YOUR WORKING SPACE
Who likes to work in a messy space, where you don’t know where is that specific pen you’re looking for? I hate it, but unfortunately I’m a VERY messy person. So I need to cheat with a great organization tip : Drawer Organizers.
They’re amazing because with the drawers you can categorize your stationery items, and there’s no mess because they’re always closed !

✘ GET A DAILY SCHEDULER
To complement the Weekly/Monthly Planner, get a small scheduler to take with you everywhere, so when you need to write down something you just planned, take out your scheduler, and later at home copy the new event on your wall planner !

✘ USE NOTEBOOKS
Cute notebooks are always useful and help keeping your mind tidy : make some lists, write down ideas, keep track of habits … or even make a bullet journal ! The possibilities are endless.
Personally I started to use this notebook with white pages to draw some makeup ideas, as I’m too lazy to try them out on myself (what can I say ? I know I’m lazy).
✘ DO SOME CLOSET REORGANIZATION
Go through your closet, and make three pile of clothes : one to keep, one to give/sell, and one to throw away. I love fashion and getting new clothes, especially when the January sales are here. But I need to get rid of the clothes that I don’t wear that often to keep the closet organized, and to make space for the new fashion finds !
✘ EMBARK ON A PROJECT !
A new year is a great occasion to get a new objective, think of new projects, and carry them out ! Having a project keeps you motivated to be more organized for its sake. For me it’s my blog, but it can be a decoration idea, getting new skills, challenging yourself at work… anything !
I hope that you enjoyed this post !
