Giveaway: Lilly Pulitzer Organiser

For the past three years I’ve been using the Kikki K financial year diary as my day planner and life organiser. I recently watched this video by Organize Like Jen and decided that I wanted something bigger and better to help me organise my life and the various projects that I have planned for this year. I’d seen the Lilly Pulitzer agendas on Glitzy Glam before and had considered purchasing one because they looked so cute. As luck would have it, as soon as I started thinking about them again Elle Fowler tweeted that the new season agendas were in stock so I headed on over and bought myself one. It arrived a couple of weeks later and I fell in love. So much so that I decided to buy a second one to give away to one of you! To enter the giveaway simply leave a comment on this post giving me your best organisational tip. Please note that this giveaway is open to Australian residents only. The winner will be drawn at random on Saturday August 18th. Good luck!

19 Thoughts on “Giveaway: Lilly Pulitzer Organiser

    I like to organise my high-rotation lipsticks into an old wooden box, meant to hold 5mL essential oil bottles. Storing them upside down means I can readily see the shade names, and it looks so pretty on my dressing table 🙂

  2. Lunch organisation! Making up little bags of cooked chicken and freezing for school and work lunches – as per a post I did once.

  3. Mine is simple but the only thing that helps me- write everything down! If I neglect to write down an event or to do list, you can bet it’ll fly out of my mind for good. I have my diary with me almost all the time, but if I don’t and think of a post idea or get invited out somewhere I jot down a note in my iPhone note app and fill in my diary when I get home that evening. Without my diary I would lose my fricking mind!

  4. My most simple organisation tip is to colour code! I use different colours to code appointments, to-dos and social events. I make sure I allocate tedious must-do tasks in a pretty colour so they don’t seem too bad. By colour-coding your organiser becomes colourful, bright and a happy sight!

  5. I usually list everything I have to do in the Epic Win iphone app, makes chores/life/etc almost fun heheh

    Oh dear lord how I could put this to use… work full-time, in my third year of completing an online degree full-time as well as moving in the next six months. Too much… just too much 😀

    My best organisational tip isn’t that great of a help to everybody but studying and working full-time I find it so useful at the start of each new semester to create my own calendar complete with important dates happening at work and assessment pieces due (mini goals within each). To keep it simple I use a table within Word and use colour shading to help keep things in check. I print out multiples copies – one for the fridge (yes… the fridge) and one for the diary. I’m definitely after a new organisational system. Fingers crossed… 🙂

    The best thing i find is to colour code things in my diary, that way its easier to find things when i am trying to look for a specific event or appointment 🙂

  8. I like to organise my headbands by streching them out along my bed head…in the morning when I am thinking up a style they are visible, in reach and I remember to pop one in my hair for a polished look!

    An organisational tool for work I find invaluable is a priority matrix. I write down all my tasks for the week and assign them to the appropriate square in terms of urgency and impact. My focus in on those task that are having medium to high urgency and medium to high impact. The low impact, not time dependent stuff can wait!

  10. My best organisational tip is to invest in a label maker, I (before mine broke) would use it to label foods with the date I opened them/put them in the fridge/freezer so they wouldn’t just sit there for too long. It’s saved me so much money, I can tell when a 1/2 used can of something needs to be put into a container and frozen before it goes bad

  11. My best organisation tip is to colour code everything in order of importance. Pink things are always my top priority so things like bills erc are always marked with cute pink post it’s etc!

  12. My best organisational tip is not to let it overwhelm you when things get busy – Evernote and to do lists are a girl’s best friend and I love using Google calender to stay digitally organised wherever I am. Not to mention a good bit of acrylic can keep any makeup organised!

  13. My iPhone is like my life saviour – I’m a massive list maker too – but if all else fails, if I have my iPhone with me – I can write notes in the notes app, add appointments in my calendar, use my tasks app for to-do’s (which you can mark urgent and rank in priority) and I also use my camera on my iPhone all the time to take photos of things I see in magazines etc that I either want to research on the internet, or put on a wishlist, or anything! Seriously – iPhone = organisational winning. It really makes the organised Taurus within me sublimely happy.

  14. Plastic storage boxes are the key! Providing that you can hide them away somewhere, because pretty they are not!

    File everything away, put everything back where it belongs. Do it on a daily basis, don’t slack off or your papers, etc. build up and you have a mess.

    I’m at my most organised when I’ve made a list of all the things I need to get done, then slowly work down the list ticking off everything as I’ve completed it. I’m so easily distracted this is the only thing that works!!! The organiser would come in very handy – would help me with my ever expanding lists!!!

  17. Lists! I write so many lists. To-do lists, shopping lists, wish lists, don’t-forget lists, people-to-email lists, you name it I list it! =)

  18. The only way I can remember everything I have to do is to write everything down! Once I have it all listed in front of me then I can get everything done!

  19. Containers! I have baskets, plastic tubs and little boxes all over my house, and everything looks immediately more tidy and organised if it’s gathered up in one of them. It’s great if you don’t have a lot of ‘hidden’ storage and you can choose colours/styles that add more interest to the room.
