:: Getting Organsized for 2015 ::

Before I start this post, I just want to say that I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. Mine was filled with holiday teas, Idina Menzel + Charlie Brown Christmas albums, and warm blankets.

Getting organized for a new year can be hard. I prefer monthly and weekly goals, they're so much easier to achieve. That being said, I still wanted to try to get organized for 2015. Here's how I'm getting ready:
1. A new calendar
Everything feels so new and fresh when you have a new calendar! This year, instead of going out and buying one, I printed out this gorgeous one. However, if you want space to write, I would suggest buying one. I have a calendar in my planner that I like to use.
2. Using my planner
I got my Ban.Do planner a few months ago for my birthday, and I absolutely love it! I'm not saying that you should go out and buy an expensive calender, but I find it really helpful to have a space to write down everything that you need to do or what is happening on a certain day. You can also print out this adorable planner from the Halfway Point. 
3.  Apps
Right now I'm using an app called TaskCat, and I find it really helpful. You can put everything that you need to do today on the front page, and it will have the little notification symbol on the app. I like this because it reminds me that I still have stuff to do! It also has other pages that I use for lists and such. I would suggest using some kind of organizational app because it is right on your phone, and you always have it with you!
4. Resolutions
I'm personally not a huge fan of New Years resolutions because I feel like you loose track of them really easily. However, I did make a few. Here they are:
♥ Exercise at least twice a week
♥ Keep doing the things that I love
♥ Make everyday the best that it can be
♥ Give myself time to relax + unwind
♥ Take better care of my hair + skin
I think that its best not to make to many. I made five, because I thought that it was a good number. If you want a printable, I made this one.

Here is the stuff from my photo: plannerDIY calenderresolution sheetpenguin sticky notesfox notepadstylus pen (similar)cat eraser.
I hope that this was helpful! I usually don't talk so much in my posts.

  48. I remember reading this post (I even installed TaskCat) and wondering what you were going to do for the challenge, but oki! <3 I should take a lot better care of my hair, too! (I'm actually pretty good with my skin because I used to have really bad acne (it's mostly gone now) and I want to prevent having it again! x)
