Get Organized for the New Year

Woman celebrating New Years

The New Year is right around the corner and there’s nothing better than starting off the year right. Getting organized will help you feel confident in your goals for the year and will help avoid anxiety and stress down the road. Here are some tips on how to get organized for the New Year to start off on the right foot.

Start Using a Planner 

Make planning out your weeks a routine. Sit down at the end of each week and write down in your planner what needs to be done each day for the next coming week. You can also write down any important dates to remember in your planner to avoid missing important birthdays or special events. It’s not enough to just buy a planner – commit to using it! Planning small tasks and goals each week and achieving those goals will make you happier and feel more accomplished.

Clean Your Entire Living Space

Nothing says a new year like cleaning out your entire home, including getting rid of junk that you definitely don’t need holding you back. Start going through each room of the house and make two piles – donation and trash. Don’t forget lots of Lysol and a duster to get into the nooks and crannies of your furniture. Getting rid of clutter that you don’t need will feel so good and a weight will be lifted. You’ll also have more room for some new items you’ve been eyeing for the New Year.

Plan your Vacations Early

Grab a calendar and mark down the days that you know you and your family will have time off. If you know you’ll be going on vacation this New Year, start planning right away. The earlier you plan your vacation, the better deals you’ll get and you’ll feel extremely prepared when it gets closer to travel time.

Organize your Vital Documents

You should always make sure you have all of you and your family’s vital documents in order in the beginning of the year. This includes birth certificates, marriage certificate, social security cards, and passports – just to name a few. These documents are extremely important to have when you need them, and there’s always an incident throughout the year where they come in handy. New schools, new jobs, getting a license, and renewing your passport all require having these documents. If you’re missing a birth certificate, you may be wondering – how do I get a birth certificate?
