My Tips At Organising Your Life

organise your life tips

Let me start by saying, that by no means have I got this organising thing down to a T. 
But I’m obsessed with it.
Organising is life.

I love diaries and folders and books that promise to organise my life, and I frequently get that urge to write a list and/or file stuff away neatly and prettily.
I have the best of intentions but something always manages to slip up and before I know it I’ve fallen off the bandwagon and back into,

Where the ruddy hell has that very important bit of paper gone?


‘Where is my left slipper?’.

I have no idea what happens, but somewhere in my brain, sabotage takes place and as quick as I’ve become an organising Queen I become unorganised and messy again.

It’s not a fun circle.

So why on earth am I writing a blog post advising you on to becoming a more organised you?
In all complete honesty, I’m hoping this may give me the kick up the bottom I need. If I’m telling you guys I’m going to do it, then there really is no getting out of it!

Ok, Kate!

So without further ado, here are my tips for becoming more organised and in turn leading a stress-free life.
Hopefully, I may take my own advice!

1 Tidy Up Your Space

Tidy space is a tidy mind. I always feel restless and super unorganised when I’m surrounded by mess which is 80% of my life. So before you can even embark on your ‘turning into an organised Goddess’, your going to have to do your Cinderella duties. Spring really is the best time of year to be doing this, so you’re already one
step ahead.

Crack on some good music, throw open the windows and prepare to face the mess. Tackle one room at a time, and declutter as you go.

Things To Do On A Sunday

2 Paperwork

Once your house is tidy it’s time to crack onto the dreaded paperwork. If you’re like me and casually throw all bills (unopened!) under the sofa/any good hiding place, then a large G+T will help with this task. Treat yourself to some nice new folders (Poundland, Primark, Ikea)
and start filing.
Organizing paperwork is the absolute worst, but once it’s done the tension that you didn’t even
know you were carrying will unload. Or the gin would’ve gone straight to your head at least.

3 Food

Meal prep! This is the one thing that I do stick to.
And sadly enough, I’ve actually started to enjoy it.
Well doing the research for all my meals at least.
Save With Jamie is my go-to cookbook, with each chapter starting with a roast and then a section on how to use up the leftovers.
It’s seriously cost efficient.
Dedicating a Sunday evening to sorting your meals out will leave you not only feeling prepared for Monday Morning, but all the extra cash you will of saved will build up nicely, meaning that when Saturday comes around you can treat yourself to lunch out AND a little something, something.

3 Goals

Organising yourself isn’t just about having a nice home and filed paperwork, even though it does feel oh so good. It’s about you feeling overall more in control of your life.

Goals play a massive part in this for me.

As much as I would love to go with the flow, and take whatever life gives me, I know that if I’m not aiming for something then I can quite quickly stroll off track. Organising your goals, where you want to be in 6 months time or three or one, can really give focus to the mind.

4 Habits

Now our homes, lives and minds are in order (hopefully!) it’s time to turn all this into a habit.
Now I’m fantastic at picking up bad habits, I smoked (given up), I bit my nails and I spent money like running water (ok I still do that) but trying to teach myself a new habit is something that I never really thought about before.



Wish List


The new habit that I’m hopefully going to teach myself is staying on top of all of the above. To give me the boost up the backside that I need, I’m going to be keeping progress of this on Twitter using the Kikki.K hashtag #HABITCHALLENGE.
According to Google, it takes roughly sixty-six days to pick up a new habit, so with a bit of luck I’ll be spending my summer drinking cocktails and admiring my new organised home and tidy mind.

Will you be joining the #HABITCHALLENGE?

    I had to give up with paper diaries. I just suck at keeping them organised, which is silly for an organiser lol. I live by my MacBook calendar now, its so easily changed and moved, I don't know how I would function without it now!
