The decade is over, it's a brand new year, and if you're like most, you have a slew of New Year's resolutions to adhere to. Aside from joining the gym and eating right, staying organized is one of the most popular resolutions people make every January. How will you stay organized this year? Read on for tips that will help you live your most organized life this new year.
KEEP THE KITCHEN CLEAN
Set up your home for organizational success with Table-Mate. One of the best things you can do to hone in on your organizational skills is to tackle the areas of the house where mess seems to pile up the most, like the kitchen. Use the Table-Mate as an additional space in the kitchen where your kids can do their homework, the little ones can color, or your partner can use it as a makeshift home office. The kitchen is the heart of the home, and as the hub, it sees many activities beyond cooking. With the Table-Mate, the days of your kids and spouse using the kitchen and island as their private workstation are over. You get your kitchen back, and they have a contained, organized space they can play or get work done. Worried about another gadget in your house creating clutter? The Table-Mate can be quickly folded up and put away in a closet for easy storage.
ORGANIZE YOUR CAR
It happens to the best of us; our vehicles are one of the first places to get filled with clutter, toys, or become our kid's personal garbage cans. Think about the amount of time you spend in your car, keeping that space organized will make your life on the go so much more enjoyable. To keep your car organized, try keeping old grocery bags in an empty tissue holder so you can quickly clean up any unexpected messes. If you have little ones, you can use a hanging shoe organizer on the back of the front seat to keep toys, snacks, crayons, diapers, or anything else you or they may need on the journey.
CREATE A DESIGNATED WORKING SPACE IN YOUR HOME
Whether you want to check your email, do a puzzle, Skype your best friend, or have a meal, use the Table-Mate in your living room to hold all of your essentials. Having a confined working area, no matter what your task at hand, will allow you to focus more. You can leave the Table-Mate open all the time and use it for extra storage, or if you have a smaller living space, only take it out when you need it.
WRITE DOWN IMPORTANT THINGS
While we may all be used to keeping track of our appointments on our smartphones and relying on our doctors to text or email us reminding us of an upcoming meeting. Consider implementing a paper calendar or planner in 2020 and doing a little digital detox. Having all of your forthcoming responsibilities in front of you will make it easier to plan and organize your weeks. Plus, if your family is always on the move, write down every sports game, birthday parties, holiday events, and school shows on the family calendar so that everyone will be on the same page.
Are you ready to make 2020 your most organized year yet? Stick to the tips above to ensure you get and stay organized in the new decade.
