Top 5 products to help you get organised this year, including an iPhone and a trusty Filofax

If your New Year’s resolution is to get organised then this post may be worth a read. It’s one of my biggest downfalls, when I’m good at organisation I’m very good, when I’m bad, it’s very bad and a bit of a mess.

So, this year, along with many other resolutions, I vow to be more organised. I have scoured the internet for the best stationary, gadgets and gizmos to help you become a more organised this year, so you can spend less time worrying and more time having fun.

And there’s one more thing you should add to your New Year’s resolutions – sign up to Give as you Live and start raising money for your favourite cause now!

Without my iPhone I am nothing, without me my iPhone is nothing. That’s how strongly I feel. It has helped me to be so much more organised , to the point where it reminds me to paint my nails when I get in. With voice recognition technology, along with all the apps you can download, it is worth the investment. Check out the top apps you can download for you iPhone here .
