There are definitely some organizational systems that create a positive impact on daily life, while others are a nice touch, convenient and helpful at times. It is always important to first focus on your daily routine, and put together stations or systems that fit that routine and phase of life. From there, slowly chip away at those random bins in the garage and boxes in the attic.
Today, Megan is stopping in from Honey We’re Home to share four systems she uses on a daily basis that ultimately streamlines her routine. Just putting in 15 minutes here or there to create simple stations can truly reduce stress instantaneously. I really hope that seeing her simple stations will make you stop and think about your day, and consider areas of your home that can be set up for smoother mornings, afternoons and evenings. It really got me thinking about what solutions in our own home have helped us more than any others, and what hot spots we still need to tackle. And while Megan and I have you thinking about your daily stations, I will also be back tomorrow to chat more about specific actions and steps that can be taken on the weekends to combat a busy week.
I sometimes opt for tea, so I keep those tea bags handy in a small decorative bowl, along with some sweetener. Since my hubby uses sugar in his coffee, we keep that decanted nearby also, along with the to-go cups he likes to use on some mornings. The little fox spoon rest is a cute decorative (and functional) touch that keeps the coffee drippings contained after a good stir.
We dedicated one drawer to diapers, wipes and burp cloths and now we can easily access them when needed, but they are out of site.
My name is Megan and I am a lawyer by day, design and decor lover by night, and Mama to the sweetest 2-year old boy you’ve ever seen. I’m passionate about fitness (and chocolate!) and could not live without my relationships, girl talk, and my morning coffee. I’ve been blogging for two years over at Honey We’re Home, sharing my love of keeping things organized and beautiful at our house. My efforts to live in the moment and cook more are an adventure in progress.
