This Organized Life: Organizing Tips for Busy Moms to Declutter, Boost Productivity, & Simplify Life

  • Tip of the Week- Organizing Your Medicine Cabinet

    20 MAY. 2024 · Hey Friends, Today’s tip came to me after Logan was rummaging through the medicine cabinet looking for allergy meds (geez, the pollen is bad this year!) May is a great time to go through your supplies to refresh and replenish things like: - Allergy meds - Bug spray - Antihistamines - Ibuprofen - Sunscreen - First Aid Supplies It’s always better to be proactive and have your staple supplies on hand rather than needing something and having to run out. Happy Organizing! Laurie P.S. If you have an organizing question, we’d love for you to be part of our show!  Check out our new Ask An Expert Series! https://simplyborganized.as.me/askanexpert

  • 5 Tips for an Organized Party | Ep 388

    16 MAY. 2024 · Hey Friends, Today we’re talking about 5 Tips for an Organized Party.   Monday’s tip of the week was all about my favorite party planning tool- Pinterest!  If you haven’t already listened, here’s a link to the episode. https://simplyborganized.com/2024/05/13/tip-of-the-week-organize-your-party-planning-with-this-simple-tool/ Whether you’re having a backyard bbq, or a full on bash-the strategy surrounding planning an event remains the same.  In this episode I unpack 5 areas that are key to streamlining the party planning process:  BUDGET- Determining your overall budget is essential to making sure that you don’t overextend yourself financially.  Once you have your overall budget, you can then allocate funds to the different areas: food, decorations, etc. THEME-Clarifying what type of party you’re having “casual, sit down, adults-only, family friendly” are all important pieces of the party puzzle. Once you nail this down, it removes a lot of the overwhelm and decision fatigue. ROLES & RESPONSIBILITIES-Establish who is only your team and what their job is. Are you outsourcing food or is someone in charge of the grill?  Who is doing the centerpieces? Do we need to order party favors? These are just a few questions that you’ll want to ask. TIMELINE-Every organized event, large or small, has a timeline that you’re working from. When do things need to be ordered? When do invitations need to go out? How long do we need to set up? You may not have all the answers off the bat, but it’s important to ask the questions early on so you are prepared. COMMUNICATE-One of the most important aspects to an organized event is clear communication with everyone involved. From vendors, to your team, and of course your guests!   Happy Organizing!

  • Tip of the Week- Packing Tips for an Organized Vacation

    6 MAY. 2024 · I love going away, but packing…not so much.  I am always on the hunt for a way to simplify and streamline the process to make it less overwhelming. If I am being honest, making sure that my bag or suitcase has room to spare is always in the back of my mind since there’s a strong likelihood that I’m picking up some sort of souvenir or gift during my travels. Below are 3 of my favorite packing tips: - My favorite packing tip is what I call NESTING. Essentially you’re taking a bunch of smaller items and “nesting” them inside a larger item.  Shoes, Boots, and Sweatshirts are great to hold anything from undergarments to toiletries. You will be amazed at how many socks you can fit inside a boot shaft! - If you’re doing any sort of air travel, I recommend keeping any MUST HAVE items with you at all times. This includes medicines and any other items that would truly impact you if they were lost.   - If you’re a chronic overpacker, try the 3 to 1 model.  For every 1 bottom, pick three tops that go with it. This allows you to mix and match without having to pack 3 separate outfits.
