1. Print Pictures Monthly
On the first day (or sometime during the first week) of the month, I download all my pictures from the month and have them printed. I have most of my pictures printed at Costco but if Snapfish Homepage has a deal on prints, I will print them there. I also download all of my Instagram pictures and print them at Persnickety Prints.
2. Organize your supplies in one spot
I bought this organization box from Live Your Stories on Etsy. Not only were they fast, but they were extremely pleasant to work with. I bought the Large Desk and Scrapbooking Organizer (pictured below), but they also have a small one. I have two full kits in the large one below and still have room to spare!

3. Write out details soon after an event
After any specific event or just a random day, I try and take some notes. I usually take the notes in my iPhone so that it is date stamped and then write it out later. Since I print and do an entire month at a time, this is helpful for keeping dates and notes in order.
4. Stay up to Date on Journaling
I bought this Mini Zipper Pouch from Thirty One and it is perfect for holding 4x6 cards, 3x4 cards, and a few journaling pens. I can sit down anywhere in the house and use this to start journaling. This way I am not doing it all while putting my pages together. This is also helpful if you want to take a few quick notes while out and about.
5. Monthly Collage
When looking back and putting together the last month, it is helpful for me to have a monthly collage with a picture of each day. This helps me keep my weeks in order and helps me with making sure I don't forget anything. I use the Collect Photo App and I absolutely love it!
