I don’t think my mom ever had to tell me to clean my room because it always was. I’ve always been very particular about what my room looked like.
This later translated to me being very organized. Sometimes to the point of my own annoyance.
I keep track of my two jobs and miniscule social life on my iPhone as well as in a planner. I don’t carry the planner with me on a daily basis, but I keep it on our coffee table and reach for it to add my work schedule, interview times and appointments.
I’m also a huge proponent of lists. It’s something I inherited from my mom.
I make lists for everything—personal and work to-do lists, grocery lists, etc. I find it oddly satisfying to cross off a task once it’s been completed.
There are lots of other things I do to stay organized (you should see my closet), but I don’t want you guys to think I have OCD or anything.
But if you’re looking for tips, Pinterest is a great place to start. Follow my organization board for more ideas!
