I love to label pretty much EVERYTHING. From files, to spice jars to containers. Labels to me - make the world go round. But not everyone has the time or money to invest in creating labels for everything. However, a great system to use, is to keep a roll of masking tape on hand for labels. Masking tape is really easy to write on and it sticks to many surfaces.
Use labels for folders, kitchen containers, even the leftovers that you want to freeze. With everything clearly marked, it makes finding things in the long run, a lot easier!
My iphone is my life - it has *everything* on it that I need at any given time. It syncs with the contacts and calenders that I have in Outlook on my computer - making my life A LOT easier in many respects!
The iPhone also has many useful apps that can make life run more smoothly - there are apps for almost everything these days. My iPhone has most certainly been one of my best investments.
While still on the subject of the iPhone/smart phone --- Evernote is one of my favourite apps. It keeps notes, lists, pictures, receipes, you name it - easy to use when you're on the run. They have a free version which gives you many options --- try it out today.
Important information can then be transferred to the appropriate place when you get back to the office.
Post It Notes
I absolutely LOVE post its. But then again - I love almost everything that comes out of a stationery store. Post it's are GREAT for using as reminders around the office or house. You can use them in so many places - on boxes, magazines, containers, in the fridge - there is no limit!
To Do List
I would be lost without my to do list - and this will have to be a completely different blog post entirely - but I find that having a "To Do List" helps me prioritise my time and spend that time productively.
Enough about my favourite organising tools - I would love to hear from you. What tools help you to get and most importantly *stay* organised?
