Another Martha Stewart favorite I keep in my purse is this little zipper pouch. Perfect for all of those loose ends that can get lost. (I bought both of these items at Staples but obviously any file and small pouch would work!)
I always keep lots of lip gloss and chap stick with me. Along with floss or toothpicks, mini scissors and nail clippers. Can’t begin to tell you how handy these things have been! With my kids I’m always needing to snip or clip something and I love having floss or toothpicks when I’m running from place to place after lunch. The best part is that when I need one of these things it’s so easy to reach for the pouch vs. trying to hunt for my lip gloss in a big bottomless purse.
The other thing I strive to stay on top of is my inbox. I start to feel overwhelmed quickly when my inbox is flooded with e-mails. Then I forget to RSVP to a birthday party or to answer a question someone is waiting on or to put an important date on my calendar. No good comes from a flooded inbox! I finally came up with a folder system that has worked so well for me and I’m happy to say that I have been able to stay on top of my e-mails. (You can read about my 3 steps for getting my inbox under control here.)
So that’s it! My top three things I strive daily to keep organized. If I can keep my purse organized, my inbox under control, and my kitchen counters clean each day I feel like I’m on top of things.
