I can't be the only one who, after the Christmas decorations are packed away, plans how I can be better organised or at the very least a little bit tidier than last year!
I am blessed in that I can switch and change my noticeboards around the house at fairly swift notice but I do think I got it almost right last year. I have stuck to pinboards in the office, strategically placed, one by my desk and one huge one up on the large wall above the fireplace where it acts as very much a mood board of ideas.
I still have my pinboard with hooks on the inside of one of the wardrobe doors where I keep all my necklaces. Wasn't it Trinny & Susannah (back in the day!) who said have them on show and you are more likely to accessorise with them? Sorry ladies, I am a complete shocker as I must have twenty or so hung up and I generally stick to my favourite three or four. I'm such a bore! Right! That's one for me in 2023 isn't it - note to self - be far more adventurous with your jewellery Emma!
Then there's the utility. We had altered ours prior to Christmas and installed new cupboards and boot shelves etc, so I think I might design one for in there. Maybe just a whiteboard so I can jot down notes and reminders.
The kitchen noticeboard? Well that's probably the only thing that will evolve this year. My other half likes to use the current one so both clipboard holders are constantly full of work papers and I have to say what once was a tidy pinboard is now a little messy! So, I plan to keep those behind the door and keeping the pinboard with it's handy pocket on the front. I'll let you know how I get on!
Our organisation needs do evolve as we go through life as do the notes and reminders that appear, so there is no need to stick with that same old pinboard. Let us refresh your kitchen noticeboard, create an organisation station or provide your little ones with somewhere to keep their little bits and bobs.
A noticeboard is such a useful thing and we can make yours look beautiful.
