    Find a Planner That Works For You

    Name a planner, and I’ve most likely tried it! This year, I’m going back to one of my favorites, The Day Designer. After a lot of trial and (mostly) error, I’ve realized that I am MOST productive when I give myself lists and schedules. Flying by the seat of my pants kinda became my motto for 2018, and I think it’s mostly due to the fact that I neglected the use of my daily planner.

    One of the most effective planners that I’ve used is The Day Designer because of the way each day is given its own full page. There is space for a full schedule, to-do list, notes, top three priorities – and even a space for gratitude. I got the flexible abridged version HERE for about $30, but there’s also a hardback full version complete with goal setting exercises available HERE.


    Invest in Acrylic Storage

    You know that phrase, out of sight, out of mind? Totally applies when it comes to your organization and storage pieces. I’ve slowly but surely started converting all of my organizers to being CLEAR. I’ve talked multiple times about these acrylic storage organizers on IG Stories, but they really have been such lifesavers! (I now have a total of 5 and use them for everything from makeup to skincare and jewelry to office supplies.) Cannot recommend these under $100 enough and even gift them regularly to friends and family!


    Color Coordination

    Seems so basic, but color coordination is one major way that I stay on task. I use specific colored pens in my planner and even use colored pouches for sorting tech accessories, jewelry, and miscellaneous items. Everything is assigned a color even in my business programs like Asana and Trello! I use colored tabs to keep projects and timelines organized. Rainbow pens and markers are my JAM.


    Throw it in the BAG

    I mentioned this above, but I have small colored bags to sort out things like hair accessories and jewelry. Instead of using one big drawer or box to throw all the things inside, I keep them separated in smaller bags or pouches. Even when I travel, I will have multiple smaller bags inside my main backpack/tote. I always know which one to grab for certain items instead of fishing around to find them.

    One thing I would love to get better about is keeping packable bags inside my car for grocery trips or while running errands. Even if it’s just sorting out all the junk that might accumulate in your back seat or trunk! I love these Baggu packable bags that I shared in the collage above, and this brand also has a ton of other color options to choose from.

    My Quick Go-To Summer Snack for All Occasions

    One of the things that gets me most excited about May is spending more time outdoors! Summer is all about enjoying the warm weather, indulging in a go-to summer snack, and basking in good company. I’m a habitual snacker, so I tend to reach for quick, easy snacks everyone can enjoy. When it comes to potato chips in our house, Jordan is obsessed with Cape Cod Potato Chips. (I swear it also has something to do with the fact that he played summer baseball in the Cape.) But really, whether you’re solo or with a group of friends, I don’t know anyone who isn’t a fan of classic potato chips!

    How to Get a Stain Out of a White Shirt & Avoid Laundry Mistakes So Your Clothes Last Longer

    Thank you to Tide for partnering on this fun learning experience and for sponsoring today’s post! As always, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

    I’m just going to come out and say it. When it comes to laundry – and household chores in general – I’m not the most experienced. In fact, up until about a month ago, we only had one type of detergent in our house which Jordan and I used for all types of clothing and stains. I found that the occasional stain from dinner just wasn’t coming out in my old laundry routine. Not to mention, our clothes – particularly Jordan’s workout clothes – just didn’t smell fresh after months continuing to wear and wash them.

    My trip to the Tide Lab in January changed my whole mindset about laundry – who knew I’d actually be EXCITED to wash my clothes now? Sharing some of the most common laundry hacks and why they are no match for Tide’s newest products in today’s full post!
