So summer is in full swing now – HOORAY! (I’m the biggest fan of Summer ever) – and although most of you will be back to work and the kids back to school, there is still fun to be had in the sun. So…..here are my top tips for keeping organised this year.
ORGANISE A SUMMER FUN BAG
Fill it with items you think you might need for a fun day out – such as sunscreen. your togs, a rug/towel, jandals, a hat, sunglasses – you get the idea. Just make sure that you empty it when you get home and restock it for next time.
I started menu planning for dinners this summer and it has made life a whole lot easier. Sit down with your recipes the night before you go shopping, consult the family and make a list. The menu then goes on the chalkboard for the week and there’s no “Mum what are we having for dinner tonight?” I shop one day a week and that’s it. It saves me time and money and much less waste. There are so many delivery food options now too that makes life easier, such as My Food Bag, Woop and Hello Fresh.
HAVE A GARAGE SALE
Summer is the perfect time to have a garage sale! With the warmer weather and longer days, it’s a great time to have a good old sort out of unwanted and unused items. Get the family involved and have fun with it. Check out my blog on “How to organise a successful garage sale” here.
GET STUFF DONE
Getting as much stuff done during your working week as you possibly can, means that you can relax on your days off and spend time with friends and family. And the more organised you are around this, the better the outcome. Being organised with your time gives you more time to do the things that really matter. What do you choose?
Lastly, have fun and a wonderful Summer 🙂
