8 Tips to Become More Organized in Your Life


Keeping your things organized can have a lot of benefits and save you from many troubles. But there are usually times when we find it hard to keep things orderly, whether we’re used to it or not. So here are some tips for you to get up and organize!

Write everything down

Don’t trust your memory entirely and write everything down on paper. Write down your plans, ideas, and to-do lists in a piece of paper and put it some place where you can look at it anytime. You can use Post-its, well, that’s what they’re typically made for.

Try to not procrastinate

Organize things as soon as you can. Finishing your tasks as early as possible can save you from worry and unnecessary stress later on. Procrastinating makes it hard to keep organized because you keep things lying around, and eventually everything will come piling up on you.

Put everything in place

Assign a place for specific things. Clothes go to the cabinet or wardrobe and dishes go to the dish rack, these are the obvious ones. Keeping your computer files in specific folders neatly is also another. You’re doing this basically to keep things from getting mixed up and causing confusion.

Back up files

One clear problem that comes with having too much stuff is misplacement. This can be pretty annoying especially with important documents and pictures in your computer. Rather than keeping all your files amiss, back them up so that you won’t worry about them getting lost.

Keep clean

On the tip about writing things down on post-its: get rid of them if they prove no use anymore. Sure, you can write things to keep organized, but always remember to clean up and dispose of unnecessary things. Keeping organized comes from a great deal of de-cluttering and cleaning. And stuff don’t clean themselves, so get moving!

Put things away after using them

We’re used to leaving our stuff on the table even if we’re done using them. We sometimes fail to notice though, that things are already piling up and things are getting messy. To keep your place organized and spacious, it would be best to put things away immediately after using them.

Prioritize needs over wants

Aside from things that you really really want, don’t buy or get rid of things that you don’t really need. Having more items necessary will only lead to more clutter. You’ll have a difficult time sorting through mountains of stuff when you can actually save time if you only keep things you need and really want.
