When my apartment and office becomes unorganized it causes me stress! On the reverse, if I'm stressed, a organized apartment or office makes me feel so much better. There's nothing worse then coming home after a long day at work to a disaster apartment. Here's 5 ways to keep your life organized.

1. Keep your apartment clean. If your anything like me, a clean, organized apartment makes me happy. Read my Spring cleaning tips, it's never to late to Spring clean!

2. Update your calendar. No one can remember every appointment and birthday. Utilize your iPhone calendar and/or your agenda. I'm the type of person who has to write everything down so I have a daily agenda I keep in my purse but I also add everything to my Gmail calendar that syncs with my phone. Some may think that's a little OCD but I have the worse memory. Read my tips to organizing your planners.

3. Plan your meals. If you have your meals ready to go in your fridge, your less likely to go through the Wendy's drive through. I am loving these mason jar salads. They are easy to make and you can store a week's worth of salads in your fridge.

4. Make a to do list. Depending on your schedule, you should make a to do list every morning or before you go to bed. The items you hate doing or aren't as fun, put those at the top of your list so you can get them out of the way first thing in the morning.

5. Say no. People always say "say yes more, you will have more experiences" and that can be true. In the world of business, it's not always the best to say yes. If your already stressed, taking on more work isn't the answer. Taking on more responsibility is a great thing but you have to pick and choose the additional tasks you take on. Don't take on more than you can handle just because your scared to say no or you feel guilty.
