I was amazed when I started doing just a few small organizational steps every day on how it made things so much better. I am sure many, if not all of us have had those mornings where everything we need is nowhere to be found. Be it our keys, wallet, purse, shoes, phone, phone charger and etc. After years of rushing around in the morning like a chicken with his head cut off, I decided to make a few changes, and what a difference. Now many people will say these are basic things we all should be doing anyway, I agree, but easy simple things we all should know and do are the things we all rarely do and that things that cause the most frustration.
So, I decided that every time I came in the house the keys went on a hook or in a bowl on the front table by the door. I have a central charging place, for me it is my studio where phones, laptops and my blue tooth are charged every single night. It has been such a plus to have this ease of finding stuff that nights where I FORGOT, I will get out of bed and make sure everything is where it should be. For many people getting dressed, not the act of getting dressed, but finding something to wear can eat up a ton of time in the morning. This may be time you do not have pending on the amount of times you and your snooze alarm do the morning tango. I have decided to make it easy and lay out my clothes the night before. Easy you say, yes of course, but how many mornings have you been late due to not having clothes ready or nothing to wear, or nothing that fit?
Packing a lunch the night before is also time saving, and money from your pocket saving because if you have nothing, you will most likely spend too much on food that will most likely be No good for you. So yes I will agree that these are the most basic organizational skills, but they are also simple things that when applied can make a hectic morning move much more smoothly.
