Our focus the next two weeks is taking care of YOU when you’re pressed for time! We’ll share useful insight to take some of the burden off your back. After today’s crash course on next-level tips for simplifying and organizing, you can be sure to shave 15 to 20 minutes from your morning routine.

You won’t find the traditional layout your outfit the night before or don’t hit snooze on the alarm advice here.  We’ve made the rounds and compiled this advanced article providing realistic time savers to deflect fights between you and your rushed morning routine.  Here is what we’ve learned from some of the most organized people.

Organization is a key component for time efficiency…period!

  • You don’t want to waste time looking for things.
  • You do want to make items visible for quick decisions and easy access.


If handbags are your Achilles heel, trying to find just the right handbag as you are rushing out the door, one of these easy to implement ideas may be right for your space.

Use empty wall space to hang your purses on a curtain rod.




Place strap bands on empty wall space or a closet door to utilize vertical door space.




How much time is spent deciding how to accessorize with the perfect necklace and bracelet! Save precious moments every morning while eliminating tangles and messy piles with one of the following solutions. You may even find that favorite piece at the bottom of a drawer after you thought you had lost it months ago!





Create a jewelry display by adding hooks to your favorite frames.





Hang jewelry on a peg board with individual hooks that are easily spaced to suit your needs. Personalize it with a simple frame or paint it with a soft, inviting color.




When you’re rushing to leave on time, hair and makeup application are the most common delays. Speed up your routine and get out the door on time with these ingenious finds.




Organize makeup with magnets. Glue magnets to your daily favorites and stick them on a magnet board for quick access.





Create a hair station by affixing small bins with adhesive strips on cabinet doors. This is perfect for convenient access to brushes, hair ties, and hot tools. A magnetic strip keeps bobby pins and tweezers from getting lost at the bottom of a drawer.   

TIP – Set a limit to the number of grooming products you use on a daily basis. Between all the moisturizers, hair products, deodorants, perfumes and dental hygiene products, it is easy to get carried away.   

Fall is just around the corner and too much time is wasted trying to iron out the creases in your sweater or attempting to fix the shoulder bumps left from the hangers. Follow the steps below to avoid both situations.



Step one: Fold sweater in half. Lay hanger as seen in photo.




Step two: Fold bottom half over top first bar and under second bar



Step Three: Repeat step two with sleeves

More packing tips:

  • Wear your bulkiest items on the day of travel! This can really save space in your suitcase.
  • When packing a beach bag, pack items inside and then pack the bag in your suitcase
  • If you’re wanting to pack a sun hat and don’t want to wear it on the way to your destination, make sure to pack small items (like socks) in the center of it to keep it from getting squished. Then, pack items around it to keep it stable.
  • Are you packing for a humid climate? Add dryer sheets inside your suitcase to keep your clothes fresh and smelling clean.
  • The last step before you close your suitcase is to cover the top of your clothing/items with a plastic dry cleaning bag. This helps ward off wrinkles.
