I am feeling a summer of sorting and simplifying coming on. The millennial adage of your brain having too many tabs open seems to resonate with me at the moment. Too many ideas are running around in my head and getting them marshalled is like trying to herd cats.
Stuff needs to be sorted - from the day to day chores like ordering groceries to the "big stuff" such as tackling that box with the vague and slightly worrying label "pensions".
I'm making a start at setting up some simple systems to help keep life under control and I've become a bit obsessed with planners. This one has really caught my eye, mainly because I love the colour palette, but also because it seems like something I would actually use. The pocket for receipts and vouchers and the clip on pencil make it extremely functional too.
I've also been quite fancying a chalk board wall but I've never had the nerve to use the paint. Imagine how many coats it would take to cover over if it doesn't look right! Well - looks like you don't have to worry - chalk board comes in a roll or a sheet that can be stuck on and peeled off. There are lots of option here, from a blank roll to pre-printed sheets.
It may be a while before I come up with perfect solutions but I think it's going to be fun trying things out. If you're looking to simplify your life too then what ever you do will be a start.
