I talk a lot about how to organize your home so that it functions for you, but one area I truly struggle with is organizing my phone. To be honest, it’s a hot mess! I’m a hot mess! I’d love to say my New Year’s resolution is to spend less time on my phone, but my business requires me to spend a considerable amount of time using it.

Get Organized in 30 Days

Instead of letting myself down, I’m going to be realistic and organize it so it simplifies my life, rather than adding stress to it. As we’ve all become increasingly reliant on our phones as our way of keeping in touch, calendars, shopping lists and more, I thought it was equally important to organize. Want to join me on the journey? Let’s do this!

Organizing your phone is quick and easy. In fact, you can do it in 15 minutes or less! Are you ready?

  1. I’ve created my own “Yellow Pages” for any non-friend/family numbers that I need/use. Instead of inserting their actual name in the “First Name” location, I start with a lower case “y” and then the category and then place their name/store name, etc. in the “Last Name” location. For example, “y Doctor”, “Dr. Smith” or “y Restaurant”, “The Little Inn.” I’ve also used a location as the first indicator – “y Cape May” and then the hotel/restaurant placed in the “Last Name”. It has made my life sooooo much easier; especially when you can’t remember a name but know the category. I only have to scroll through the “y” not the entire alphabetical listings!

    1. Click on an icon and hold it down, then click “edit home screen”. If you drag and drop items on top of one another, it will create a folder that you can rename. Enjoy!

  2. Well, This is interesting info, only I do not understand most of it, What bar and where is it. Drag and drop? I guess if I do not know about it then I don’t need it? What do you think?
