A few things I do to make life easier

In my 28 years of being alive I have learned a few things to keep my life running as smoothly as possible. By the end of this you may think I’m crazy, but I promise my house is not intensely organized as this may make it sound, but it keeps it organized enough that we know where everything is and it looks nice and neat 😉

1. I clean throughout the week. I can’t concentrate if things are a mess and so I try to keep up with the tidying as much as possible. For example I will do a quick sweep and vacuum, tidy up our vanity, wipe down the kitchen counter…small things that make a difference. Also this way you’re not stuck with a major cleaning job at the end of the week…that would drive me crazy!

2. I never throw clothes on the floor. Seriously, I have never done this unless I am creating piles to give away, throw away, sell, and keep. Even as a kid I’ve thrown dirty clothes in the hamper and clean clothes wherever they go. I think side note to this is that I do try to put things back where they belong at least by the end of the day.

3. I get things together the night before. This could be for anything an interview, work, travel. For example let’s use work. I will prep my snack and lunch, fill up my water bottle, and get my scrubs out so I have to do as little thinking in the morning as possible.

These are just a few of the things I do to keep myself sane, but they go a very long way!

A long time ago I remember B saying something about doing things now that you will thank yourself for later. I am a VERY strong advocate of this! It might be unpleasant or annoying in the moment, but I know I always thank my past self for having the insight to know myself enough to take care of things.

What do you guys do that you thank yourselves for later? Leave it in the comments!

    These are such great tips! I do almost all these too (although clothes do find themselves on the floor- especially when I’m in a rush 😉 ). I know what you mean 100% about not being able to focus if the house is dirty & we leave the house pretty spotless right before bed even if it gets pretty messy during the day. I also feel like I sleep better when everything is tidy. Thanks for sharing, girl!
