LIVE: Organize and Energize - Make Life Less Chaotic

Saturday, February 25, 2017

 

Organizing and efficiency expert Kristin MacRae says when you are organized, life is less chaotic. You can save money and life will be less stressful in the long run if you start getting organized.

“I always talk about getting organized as a lifestyle change,” MacRae says, “you’re saving time, you have more money, you have less stress, people have more confidence in you, so all those benefits come into play.”

She also says getting into a routine and doing prep work can help make things less chaotic. 

“Meal prep, less than an hour on a Sunday. That hour on a Sunday can help you through the week,” MacRae says. 

MacRae says getting organized is a process but think of it as a long term commitment to being a happier and healthier you.
