Don’t you ever feel like everything is a mess all of the time? Living an organised life can have an effect on your mood and how productive your work.
Based on my own experience, when I see someone else’s messy room, I get a bit of a panic attack and my OCD kicks in.
In this post, I’ll share with you 5 tips for living organised. This includes:
- clearing space
- adding a fresh touch
So grab your mug of coffee or tea and let’s get right into it!
5 Tips for Living an Organised Life
1. Planners, more planners, and to-do lists
To be organised, it’s to think “mentally organised”.
How many times have you forgot to do some important project but realised that is it due in 3 days? The worst part, you haven’t started at all! I’m pretty sure most of you have.
Don’t worry, you’re not alone. Back then, I was a totally unorganised person. When exams were coming up, I would study in the last week when the date came. Don’t even ask me about my results! It was horrible to say at least.

If you leave pretty much everything clamped up, it could become a big messy disaster. No harm to use your free time doing house chores or throwing away old paper pins.
If once a week doesn’t suit your match, try 3 times a month. And, when you clean up you’ll find items that you were trying to look for in the past 5 weeks. After decluttering, you’ll feel relief and stress-free.

3. Clearing up your space for freedom
With a whole bunch of stationery, paper, and books on your desk, you won’t be able to BREATHE!
Maybe think about storing away or even better, throwing away stuff you don’t need and try keeping it as clear as possible. You could even put a small plant to keep you feeling motivated and inspire creativity. Think minimalist!
4. Adding a new touch
You would probably feel really bored, sitting in the same spot and staring straight at the picture you hung 2 years ago.
Try adding something new like succulent plants or small displays. Add new photo frames or buy a new chair to replace your old one.
5. Change the scenery
Same with the fourth tip, try changing your placements once in a while. There are ways to change your furniture’s new look. An example of one is if your desk was facing a wall, move it towards a window. Or you can try placing your photo frames in different cupboards.
Your storage could be placed in stacks next to your desk to easier reach maybe? It will feel like you’ve just moved into a brand new apartment.
After reading these room organising tips, you should try out these steps. You can always do these steps one at a time for a week.
