I am pretty on top of schedules, but there are times I can be pretty absentminded. There are also a couple of instances where I just don’t want to do something and put it off as much as possible.
Strike that. A lot of instances.
Here are some things that I do to keep organized, healthy and looking on point. Always.
I have spoken about how much I love organizing via tech, but you can also do this with a physical planner.
1. Schedule, automate and issue reminders for (weekly) tasks.
There are some chores I do that are beauty-related every week, namely washing my makeup brushes, deep cleaning my sponges and brushing and washing my hair brush.
Yes, that’s right. I brush my brush.
I usually remember, but on weeks that are more hectic, I can leave these chores by the wayside.
I have a special “beauty” calendar for these things that sync up to my Google Calendar on my phone and my computer. Every time I feel like I’m about to shirk a beauty chore, I only have to look at my phone to feel guilty and get my butt in gear to do what needs to be done.
Some of these reminders rock!
Some of these suck to read.
All of them are useful.
2. Schedule reminders to go shopping for replacements and toss out products.
I talked about the importance of tossing out products, and a main purge on a previous Organize October post so I’m just going to gloss over this tip. I input expiry and replacement dates on my phone as soon as I open a product. I also issue reminders a week before so I can take the time to reflect and evaluate whether I will repurchase the product or something similar.
It is quite possibly the single most amazing thing that I have ever implemented. When I did that, my life became infinitely more organized.
3. Schedule out monthly/occasional reminders on your phone and computer for big clear-outs and organization maintenance.
Do you have a storage system in place? Do you want to put one in place? I like to schedule the time to clean out my stash, my storage systems and give each product a solid evaluation. Toss out expired goods, allocate things to give to other people and input each product in my beauty inventory system.
Do you keep a beauty calendar as well? Or are your rituals done whenever
you can find the time? Let us know in the comments or via social media!
