Easy and Effective Ways for Mums to Stay Organised This Year January 7, 2015 By Lime Tree Kids Family comments Want to stay organised? Of course, you do!! Unless you have 4 pairs of additional arms and an extra brain to spare, being organised is the only way a Mum can get things done at home and away and still stay sane. So, here are our tried-and-tested and proven effective ways to stay organised with ease and no need for any extra body parts too! ;) 1. Plan Your Day Whether you use a digital to-do list or a gorgeous planner like the OTi Planners for Mums, using one will ensure that you don’t have to remember every.single.thing in your head. You have a handy list to check through, a calendar to review before scheduling one more playdate and never forget a birthday present. Bliss, right? 2. Stay Organised with Totes I love totes. Not only are they handy to carry when out and about but also because they keep stuff organised easily and ready to go. Have yoga class? Grab your tote with the yoga gear in it already. Going to the park for a picnic? Pick an already packed picnic bag. Toss in the things that got used the last time, but other than that, you don’t have to hunt for a mat, a towel or other such things! 3. Give the Kids Responsibility with their Schedules Giving children a calendar of their own will also be a great way to stay on track and follow a schedule as a family. The Doowell Magnetic Calendar is perfect for young learners with its visual elements and will help them remember what special events are lined up for that day. 4. Store Things Right “A place for everything and everything in its place.” If you just live by this, you can be sure that you’ll always be organised with ease. Storage cube furniture is my sanity-saver and it makes it SO easy to have homework, craft supplies, toys, books and all the other random things that need to be corralled away stored neatly in these. Wall organisers are another excellent way to keep books, magazines, and mail organised easily every single day. The fact that all of these are so gorgeous to look at makes them a surefire win in my book. How do YOU stay organised with ease, Mummas?
