My 3 Favourite Tools To Help Shop Owners Stay Organized During Busy Seasons

No matter what you use, keep it simple and be consistent. Don’t overcomplicate it!

 

Avoid having little pieces of paper and notes everywhere to keep you focused and organized (even if you don’t feel focused and organized). This just makes it harder to find what you need and way more clutter.

Here are the top three organizational tools that I recommend for this upcoming holiday season, and any busy season:

 
1.) Planner Pad – my favourite planner for creative/multi-passionate shop owners. I’ve used this one for years and many of my shop owners swear by it as well. It’s a shop owner’s favourite!
 
 
2.) Whiteboard – keep high priority “at a glance” weekly tasks on a whiteboard, for yourself and/or your team.
 
 
3.) Old Fashion Notebook – but, a different one for big topics (shop to-do’s, orders, your squirrel ideas, things you are learning from coaching or podcasts, family stuff, etc.). Or use a 3 or 5 subject notebook.

 

Simple wins to keep us organized.

 

I also use google docs for sharing, as well as Canva for templates and ease.

Remember, running a retail business doesn’t have to be so hard, so don’t overcomplicate it!

 

You’ve got this!
