Today I want to talk about my four favorite essential tools to keep your life organized.

Maintaining an organized life is easy, but sometimes getting started can seem monumental. You will need some tools to help you out, and it will take time to set them up and get used to them. It’s worth it in the end.

Here are my favorites:

Paper Planner

Although almost everything is done digitally these days, a paper planner can still be in your organizational toolbox. There are a zillion (yes, that’s a technical number) options to choose from. Picking one that works for you might take longer than setting it up!

Paper planners are great because writing things down can help cement the events or items in your mind. I use my paper planner daily, and even though gel pens are cute and fun, I only use pencils. Things in my life change too quickly, and I’m usually erasing something at least once daily. But if you want to go the pen, sticker, and washi tape route, have at it. If it makes it more fun for you and will keep you using your planner, I’m all for it. Find a planner and accessories that work for you and your lifestyle.
