Do you feel as though your life is just full of clutter? I’m not just talking about the piles of laundry that seem to multiply when you’re not looking. Or the sink that seems to NEVER be fully empty. I’m also talking about feeling like you must be losing hours in the day because you never seem to have enough time to get everything done. Then there’s also that feeling of mental clutter when you just have so much going on in your mind, that you can’t seem to focus on any one thing.
I can relate!
As a single mom, a homeschooler, and an online entrepreneur, I feel like I have cornered the market on feeling like my life is full of clutter.
Here’s a not-so-secret secret – I struggle with getting and staying organized. It’s just never been a natural talent. Nor have I mastered that skill set.
That’s why I am always on the lookout for tips, tools, and techniques that can help me get on track. Since I know I am not the only one who struggles with this, I thought that I would share some things that I’ve found helpful.
Do a Brain Dump
This is the main one for me. I have to write EVERYTHING down in one place. I’ve always been the type of person that would have 5 or 6 notebooks and just randomly jot down to-do items in all of them. I bet you can guess what happens when you do that, lol. You forget things and strokes of inspiration get lost in the mix. Having a master list in ONE place has really helped to cut down on that. It doesn’t even have to be something fancy. I use the notes section of my planner (it has several pages) or a 3-ring binder.
Once you have your master list cut down on the overwhelm by focusing on things you need to do ASAP and the big projects that you need to focus on. I know from experience that looking at a long list of things I want to do can be stressful. But when I sit down and really ask myself what I NEED to do, the list usually ends up significantly shorter.
No, this isn’t a typo, lol. It’s actually a Google Chrome extension you can use that allows you to block any websites that you know are time sucks. You can block them temporarily, during certain times of the day, or set a timer so that you can only browse them for a specific amount of time. I use it sometimes when I absolutely need to focus on something and know that I will be tempted to wander. Check it out here.
Work in Small Chunks
Another thing that I TRY to do is to work in chunks or batches instead of trying to do all the things at one time. One of my friends is a genius at this. She will dedicate one day to writing blog posts another to scheduling social media posts, another to creating graphics, another to doing photo shoots, another to packing up customer orders (she sells planners and planner accessories, and another to doing videos. It works for her and she is super productive. I haven’t yet pegged down a system, but am working on it.
Seriously, when you finally get to cross off that big project from your to-do list, don’t just move on to the next thing. Take some time to give yourself a celebratory pat on the back. Even if it is something like taking the evening off to binge watch Netflix, do something that makes you feel happy.
Announce Your Intentions
Another thing that works for some people is to tell other people what you are working on. Sometimes, the knowledge that other people may be watching and waiting for updates can be enough to keep you moving forward on your goals.
Budget Your Time
You know the saying “time is money”, right? It may be cliche, but it is true. Time is precious commodity. We, as humans, are always talking about time. We comment about how quickly our kids are growing and how the time we have with them is precious. We act surprised about how we are about to be 18, 25, 30, 40, 50, 65, etc. We talk about how the day flew by. Or complain about how we need more time in the day. If time is such a valuable (and finite) resource, shouldn’t we treat it the way we treat another similar resources? Yeah, I’m talking about money. Many of us are careful about how we spend our money. We track how we spend it and budget according to how much money we have. We should do the same thing with our time. I am definitely guilty of budgeting my time poorly but it is something I am working on.
However, I’m gonna be honest and tell you that even knowing these strategies hasn’t been enough for me to actually become organized. There’s still something missing.
Which is why I’m excited about this mega resource I came across.
It’s called the Conquer Your Clutter Super Bundle Sale.
This 5-day sale gives us the opportunity to get our hands on a bundle of 34 organizational resources that can help us to wrangle messes, gain focus, and finally feel like life is running like a well-oiled machine. I don’t know about you, but that sounds like something I could use.
Listen, I am TIRED of suffering from CHAOS (Can’t Have Anyone Over Syndrome). Not just because of the neverending laundry, but because I just don’t have the time. And I KNOW I’m not alone. I know me and a few of my mommy friends are always talking about how we need to get our collective sh*t together, lol!
And it’s not like I don’t try. I do. But I haven’t yet found the perfect system. And can’t afford to pay a ton of money trying to figure it all out. So I figure this bundle is my best bet.
The package includes 38 digital products on topics like how to organize your photos, decluttering, family systems, meal planning, time management, and much more. All together, it’s worth over $650!
Plus, it comes with two brilliant bonus offers worth over $40:
Of course, the thing I love about the bundle is the price. I am most definitely frugal, so knowing that the price is temporarily 95% off got me excited!
