The Clutter Princess had some great advice to set everything up in the P.M.
My favs from her list were:
- Lay out your clothes – it may seem silly, but I waste a lot of time searching around for the right shirt that looks the best with a certain pair of pants.. and where is that one key piece of jewelry that would really make this outfit?
- Make your lunch – those 10 extra minutes to put a lunch together are crucial in the morning, the night before you can do it during American Idol commercials.
- Get your coffee ready – There's something magical about the coffee being set up when you are in need of it the most. (Janice, I need a programmable coffee pot too!)
So in the mighty year of 2010, I am going to proactively get it together in the mornings and achieve a calm sense of nirvana. I have heard that most people feel a higher sense of calm when they are not surrounded by clutter (which I'm still working on to achieve). Anyone else have any org tips they use to keep your blood pressure down?
(Btw, major shout-outs to Caty from Catalina Photography! She did the photo at the top to help illustrate the idea of laying out your clothes. Now doesn't that look calm, fashionable and inviting for something to see in the morning?)
