    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.

    EVERYTHING On My Amazon Baby Registry

    When I first announced that I was pregnant, I hadn’t quite let the idea of a baby registry sink in. But now that we are closing in on the third trimester, it’s time to research all the cute baby things I might need! There are quite a few big name websites that you can set up a baby registry on, and narrowing it down to the best option was quite a process. I was super lucky enough to get registry lists from friends as examples to go off of as a solid start. I ultimately decided that going with Amazon was a no-brainer because you can literally find everything in one place. Sharing some of the big items on my registry in today’s post!!
