How many times has your professor given you a last-minute homework assignment/your boss given you a new deadline/you were invited to a party and the date suddenly had been changed and you either scribbled it on a piece of paper or inked it on the back of your hand? And then, of course, the paper gets lost in a purse or pocket or the ink gets washed off by accident. Well, I have a solution!
Try a planner! Day planners, week planners, month planners, year–you name it; there is a planner for you! I know there are places out there like the Franklin Covey site where you can get high-end planners and refills and customizable inserts, etc. I’ve checked there, and it’s a very neat site. The only downside is that the most affordable are not the best looking and such. However, Target has many really cute, refillable planners for around $12 that last for one year plus 3 additional months, and when it comes time to buy another, a refill is only about $8!
Keeping an organized account of when things are due, your dinner plans, your travel/vacation plans is a wonderful way to get into a habit of timeliness. Timeliness is an important aspect for a professional job–especially if you are working on several projects or are heading a project (or two).

If you’re like me, your closet is crammed and packed full of shirts, pants, dresses, skirts, sweaters, cardigans, jackets, and who knows what else. It’s hard enough to find something to wear much less try to hang things back up! Usually, my closet is a decent size so that I am not cramming when it comes to my clothes, but in college, the only closet space they offer is a 3x2x4 space inside a box. That’s supposed to house my clothes (my dressy ones at least), my shoes, and whatever else I need to hang up. The result? A closet space so mashed together, it made my room look messy if I left the doors open!
Messy, isn’t it? After growing sick and tired of always having to shove my clothes aside to either find an article of clothing or to hand one up, I went out and bought a box of Wonder Hangers. Now, you can use Wonder Hanger in any closet space–not just college dorm ones. You can also get them at CVS Pharmacy and Target in the “As Seen on TV” isle. They are about $5 a box, if I remember correctly, but boy do they work! One box comes with 8 hangers that hold 5 garments apiece, and they are ingeniously user-friendly! They can hold all sorts of hanger types from the wire ones to the really big, fat plastic ones used for handing up dress pants and heavy dresses. After maybe 5 minutes, I had organized my previous mess of a closet into a roomy, organized, easily accessible closet! I organized my clothes (mostly) from shirts to skirts to dresses.
Amazing! A few of my clothes (not including my jackets) didn’t make it into a Hanger because I ran out of them, but my closet looked so much neater, I felt that a few out-of-place garments wouldn’t get in the way. The only iffy that I have with these awesome Wonder Hangers is that when I used one to organize the hectic nest of jackets on the left hand side, the ring holding the Hanger to the bar stretched out, and I was afraid that it would break (I have some seriously hard core jackets). So, I just left them in their own side section. I hope this has helped you all! Thanks for reading!
