How to have a successful month (and stay organized)

This is one thing I’ve really been struggling with and it’s staying organized and on top of my sh*t. Lately, I have not been and avoiding them at all costs.

Dry Erase Boards

I got mine at the dollar store for $4 and it came with a magnet to put on the fridge. Mine is set up with dates and when things are generally due and what events I have coming up. As this is on my fridge, I personally don’t put the totals owing. But I find it’s great for a quick glance and for those oh crap moments.

Daily Planners

I have my planner just like everyone else in the world. My 9-5 job has commissions involved so I also add those on the days I earn them so I know what to expect on my paycheck. I use my monthly view in my planner for the actual totals due and if I need to split up payments for anything. I also include my paydays for easy reference.

Habit Tracker

This is something I’m trying for the month of March, I found print outs on Pinterest and found one that seems to work for me I’ve listed the tasks such as:

  • water consumption
  • skin care
  • a “five minute” tidy
  • dishes
  • deep clean (once a week)
  • review finaces

Those are just some examples, but I didn’t want to start with an overwhelming list as part of the reason is to also get into the habit of marking it down.

A Budget

Now, this is actually going to be a whole separate post later in the month. Budgets are scary and being accountable is scarier. Start to really look at your fiances. I downloaded the Mint app, and set budgets through the app and it sends me notifications when I’ve over spent in categories.

  1. Love the “5 minute tidy”! I can sometimes get more done in 5 minutes tidying than what I would get done if I planned to tidy up lol! Thanks for sharing.
