Top Tips For Being Organised in 2024

Planning on being better organised in 2024? We’ve put together some top tips to help you stay on top of your social diary, academic studies and family calendar.

Create a to-do list

Setting achievable goals is at the top of everyone’s list, but the key is to start small. Rather than take on the whole world quickly, try to break down your to-do list into smaller, easier-to-digest chunks. This way, your to-do list will look less daunting and you’ll be able to see your progress throughout the year.

✅ We love that satisfying feeling when you can cross a job off your to-do list!

Use Calendars and Diaries

Accidentally double booked? We’ve all been there from one time to another. Making a date with your diary or calendar and writing down all of your key engagements, from Birthdays to Anniversaries will help prevent those blunders from happening in the future, so you don’t need to worry about missing out on your favourite events.

If this sounds like something you’d like to take charge of in 2024, then Typo is a great place to start, with a large selection of quirky planners and diaries starting from as little as £3.50.

Colour Coordinate

Take your organisation to the next level with colour-coordinated stationery. Why not allocate each family member with a colour and mark them on your family calendar?  Not only will this look great but it will help you to visually spot who is working late or enjoying drinks at the weekend or attending a birthday party, so you won’t need to worry. You can pick up a variety of coloured pens and pencils from Ryman, The Works, Typo, Paperchase and more.

Journaling

Journaling has fast become one of our favourite self-care routines. It allows you to be mindful, writing down all of the great things that have happened throughout your day so you can look back on them with joy. Or, on the flip side, if you’re not having a great day, you can write all your thoughts down, getting them out of your head so you can sit back, be present and relax.

Typo provides a wide range of notepads and journals for everyone’s tastes.

Declutter

We’ve all heard the mantra ‘tidy space, tidy mind’. There’s something nice about having your belongings neat and tidy. Not only does It help you to find things for when you next need them, but it’s also great for when you want to do some work or study, as it eliminates distractions and promotes productivity.

Make Notes

Have you ever watched a TV show and seen a recipe you liked the look of? Make notes! Having a handy pad nearby so you can quickly write down where to find your ingredients and write your weekly shopping list will help you remember things and make your tea times more exciting, as you’ll have lots of new recipes to try out too!

Ryman offers a large selection of Pukka pads available in all shapes and sizes starting from as little as £3.99.
