Are you feeling like maybe you missed the class on 'How to Function as an Adult'?
Many of us enter adulthood without a clue of what to do. In other words, we’re winging it. Soon enough, life moves faster and everything becomes harder. Our minds begin to race, our weekends fill with life admin and our jaws become permanently clenched.
So what’s the antidote to this modern life? It’s simple: we need to focus on what we can control, so we have more space to deal with the things we can’t control.
When we learn to do this, we have time to take a breath, we feel more in control and we experience less stress. We can finally become the best version of ourselves.
Get Organised is designed to take you there. It’s the complete framework that untangled each area of my life, so I could think, work and feel better — now I’m sharing it with you in this highly practical and actionable self-paced program.
From freeing up space in your brain, to breaking bad habits & building new ones, to tidying your environment, to becoming that productive person who can avoid distractions and seems to have more hours in the day than everyone else. We cover (and achieve) it all.
Life stops for nothing. Not even a quick Instagram scroll. Every day, we have one million (and one) things to do, feel and think. It’s no wonder that we feel rushed, anxious, frazzled, behind, unbalanced and overwhelmed.
I often get asked “can this program help someone like me?”. If you’re nodding your head to the below, it’s a big YES.
• You need an extra 8 hours a day
• You lose sleep thanks to your racing mind
• You wish you could hit pause to get your life on track
• You’re always chasing your tail at work and home
• Your to-do list doesn't appear to be getting smaller
• You’re forever in need of a holiday to *magically* solve your problems
• Free up so much space in your mind that you no longer feel overwhelmed, indecisive or forgetful
• Be your most productive self and create more FREE time
• Have habits finally stick - not just for a few months, but life-long habits that allow you to be the person you would love to be
• Streamline every task that doesn't require your manual input
• Automate your finances so you no longer have stressful surprises
• Learn how to make your environment work for you
• Create effortless routines that allow you to rely less on willpower
I can tell you now, it feels incredible and Get Organised will help you with all of it.
Small wins motivate us to tackle the big, scary stuff. So, Get Organised is designed with this in mind: first we action the simple things that make us feel better instantly, before moving onto the bigger, more complex topics.
Get Organised is extremely actionable and you'll be able to apply things instantly, even if you're completely pressed for time.
Here's what you'll learn:
Through reflection activities and in-depth worksheets, you’ll design your ideal life — even if you don’t quite know what that is yet. Dreaming (and building) a crystal clear vision starts with you, but I’m here to help you on your way.
In just five lessons, you’ll go from overwhelmed, stressed and forgetful to calm, prepared, and relaxed. How? By taking the pressure off your brain and hand-balling the responsibility over to paper.
Forever leaving things until the last minute, or swear you don’t have as many hours in the day? Whether you’re a student, parent or serial procrastinator, Get Productive is jam-packed with my go-to productivity strategies for life and business too!
Between exercise, making our own meals and getting to bed at a reasonable time, adulting can be a full-time job. But what if everyday life didn’t require so much structure and discipline? Here, you’ll walk away with the 7 key steps to finding the best habits for you — and then set them for life.
Here you’ll learn (and implement) my biggest hack for saving time and freeing yourself from financial stress. Thanks to automation, you’ll finally avoid unwelcome surprises, approach bills with a 'set & forget' mentality and reduce annoying life admin.
Ever noticed how in control you feel when you make your bed, or how cleansed you feel when you clean your home? Let's expand that feeling across your entire life. Your surroundings are directly linked to your mental health, and by creating outer order, we'll achieve inner order, too.
First, I’ll help you find your own foolproof 24hr formula, before you put it into action with life-changing results. Imagine having more than enough time in the day, productive work days and a full cup, all of the time? It all comes down to your morning, evening, weekly and monthly routines.
A place to ask questions, feel supported and stay accountable as you work through Get Organised.
And I’ve always been intrigued with how things work.
As a kid, I was the one constantly asking “why?”. As an adult, this curious trait helped me to solve some complex health conditions (scoliosis and chronic fatigue).
Stress was a constant, yet out of everything, it was my ‘everyday’ life causing me the most anxiety — I felt like I was never taught how to ‘adult’ and struggled to keep up.
So for the next two years, I streamlined, organised and took control of my life. Then I compiled everything I learned and created Get Organised, so you have an express route to where I am today.
A life with far less stress & anxiety, and more time, space, clarity, control, peace & joy.
Don’t let the title fool you: this isn’t pages and pages of organisation tips — it will help you automate and manage every area of your life. How are your stress levels? How do you cope with curveballs? If you could improve, Get Organised is for you.
Well it sounds like you’re the perfect student. Get Organised is designed to help you gain control over your life and steal back hours in the day as quickly as possible. If you’re really ready for a positive change, you’ll find the time to start.
I recommend getting the hard copy. Get Organised is specifically and purposefully designed to be a physical workbook that you can hold, highlight & revisit for years to come.
With over 170 pages, the ring binding was chosen so you can lay the workbook completely flat & write in it with ease. To my left handers, I've made sure it's still easy for you too!
The paper is very high quality so you can write and highlight without ink bleeding through.
The digital version exists as an option for those who live overseas and would prefer to save on shipping or anyone who is hoping to keep their personal belongings to a minimum and would rather digital access.
This is completely up to you.
"I revisit this book every week, I devoured it instantly and now I go back weekly and implement something new." - Cara
"I have LOVED the book so far. I’m taking it slow and only reading a few pages at a time so that I really get the most out of it and implement the practical tips as I go." - Sigourney
"I’m choosing to read through it first and then go back and execute. I can already imagine what a lighter and more intention-filled life is going to be like for me." - Donna
Absolutely. Get Organised is for everyone and I specifically kept you in mind whilst putting the program together.
A common concern for shift workers is the topic of routines. We cover this in 07. Get Yourself Sorted. Before we tackle routines I help you find your own foolproof 24hr formula. As a shift worker your 'timing' of mornings and evenings might be different but the actions will be the same.
Eg. If you work 7pm-7am, your 'morning routine' may start in the afternoon and your 'night time / before bed routine' may start when you get home from work.
Sure do, you are welcome to use Afterpay.
Iv worked through Get Organised and finished it, but then life suddenly flipped the script and I lost track and now I'm going to work through it again. That's how great it is, you can always go back to it and refine what you've worked through! There is always room for self improvement
Repeat every year or life change
Lots of these tools I knew but had let slide so was a great refresh and reminder to go through. My favourite section was the how do I want my life to look, going into each aspect including clearing out your car which was the one area that I just wasn’t paying attention and then do a big overhaul small changes make a big difference. Elle reached out to ask how I found GO and it reminded me that going back through the course has so much more to gain from it and am in a totally different phase of life that needs focus and strategies that I didn’t need last time but do now. Thanks heaps for actually caring Elle
Like a life coach, but in a book!
Elle has curated this book in a way that allows you to naturally flow through each section building on the exercises of previous chapters. Starting from the very first chapter, it really set me up to be in the right mind frame to make the most of the rest of the book. It challenged me to stop & think hard about the specifics around how my life currently is & what I want it to be like, but also honing in on myself as a person & where I am at currently vs where I want to be as an individual. It isn’t something I had ever taken the time to consider before, especially so in depth. I found it to be really interesting, thought provoking & effective to do that kind of a check in at the start & really break down & articulate present me vs future me rather than just glancing at myself from a broad/overview perspective. The level of clarity this book gave me was incredible & something I am so grateful for, not to mention it is a tool you can keep going back to & revisiting at various stages in your life for a timely refresh!
The adulting guide YOU NEED!
I cannot express enough how amazing Get Organised is. It has quite literally changed and shaped my life for the better and I’m not even finished yet - I should be but that’s the beauty of it, you set your own pace to work through it. I started it as a SAHM and now am a part-time SAHM, and holy am I glad I had started implementing Get Organised into my life before I tried to attempt the chaos of toddlerhood and working life! It is incredibly well written, and the time and love poured into this is evident on every page. As you work through the program, you feel the support and understanding through every step. It is a true testament to Elle and I will be forever grateful that she decided to share this with the world. On a complete side note, my husband has also flipped through it and I swear he is secretly working through the program as well! Thank you. Just thank you. And if you are on the fence about Get Organised, honestly, just do it! It’s an investment in your self and your future.
This program is so good I had to take a two-month hiatus because I was sad how quickly I was getting through it and wasn't mentally ready for it to end!
I'm a messy teacher. I always keep lots of things "in case I might need it later" (fellow teachers, You know what I mean ). My husband couldn't stand seeing my stuff all around the appartment and told me numerous times that it was enough. Last may, I celebrated my 30th birthday by offering to myself "Get organised" after questionning myself on that way of living. I was dreaming my home to be so clear and inspiring as Elle's ! What's better than learn from her directly ? Living in Belgium, it took almost a month to get to my mailbox but this day was better than christmas for me ! I already read it once, to discover all the tricks, I was so absorbed into it, couldn't stop reading to apply right away. Now, I read it again but more slowly, to apply, one step at a time, all the precious advices ! I'm happier and -believe it or not- my husband too I'm not fully organised yet, but I'm getting at it at my own pace. Thank you so much Elle, I'm slowly getting my sh*t together and it feels soooo good ❤️
I haven’t officially started Get Organised yet, but am incredibly excited to! It’s clear how much time, effort, and thought went into the creation of this program, it’s just lovely both aesthetically and content wise (especially with the hand written note inside, you rock Elle). Can’t wait to begin!
Made me feel like a proper grownup!
Such a great book with lots of details to help you become your best self!
Get organised has improved my organisation to be able to live in the moment and not worry about the future. Allows me to enjoy get bendy with less stress! Thanks Elle!
Firstly Elle is amazing, she is quick to communicate and really focuses on having proper conversations with you to address any questions. Secondly, this is a product that everyone needs in their life!! There is sooo much to unpack in this guide, from budgeting, to organising your physical space, to creating new habits. The part I love the most is how you are given the information, and then provided with a space to instantly apply it to your life - which motivates you to implement whatever habits she is suggesting. You can also implement things instantly, which I really liked as I worked through the book. Could not recommend it enough, well done!!
Changed my life - literally
First of all, I got the hard copy and it’s sooooo aesthetic, you can really see how much time and effort went into making it! Secondly, Get Organised isn’t something that I would usually buy - I like to think that I’m pretty on top of the practical stuff in life. But at the time, I was thinking about leaving my job in law that I really hated, and I think I kind of needed a sign that actually that job wasn’t allowing me to make my life how I wanted, and I had a dream of becoming an athlete that I would absolutely regret if I didn’t pursue it (regardless of outcome). I think Get Organised was part of the push I needed!! The first chapter where you write down your ideal life, I was writing things down and realising how far away from that I was, when I’m looking back at it now to write this I can just see how deep in stress I was! So that was amazing, and for the practical stuff - literally that day I bought a new bed frame online and even just that changed the whole feel of our apartment to be so much better, i automated all the bills, I did the whole barefoot investor sort your accounts thing, I made habits like always eating breakfast - so basically, I already wanted to do all these things but Get Organised really made me reflect on why, and gave me the push I needed to actually do them!! So thank you Elle for creating such an amazing guide to life! ☀️ I would say that before working through it, my life was just a whole ball of stress and it felt like I was trapped in the middle and couldn’t find a path out. Afterwards, it felt like I had been able to find myself a clear path out of the stress and even if the steps were difficult ones, it was so relieving to know that, actually, I could get out of that point of life where I didn’t want to be.
A game changer
I revisit this book every week, I devoured it instantly and now I go back weekly and implement something new. It’s been like a ‘how to be a grown up, independent woman guide’. I bought Get Organised because I felt I was turning the page on the next chapter on my life (both kids at school and starting a new career) and I needed tools to help reinvent myself. Honestly, it’s the simplest things that have made the biggest difference. Like, clean the car out after every trip (which for a real estate agent with kids.... is so important to keep on top of). However, I think ‘getting it out of my head’ has been the best tool for me as a chronic forgetter with an overwhelmed mind. I now feel so much ease not having to hold everything in my head and wear a million hats at once. I’m much calmer now when it comes to the daily admin of running our home, two kids lives, and my own. I’ve made huge improvements in my day to day, the way my week runs, and the progress over the last few months is having a huge impact on my family, my relationship and how I feel about myself and where life is headed! I used to be a chronic ‘buy the book, feel good for a week and then forget everything and so spiral downwards again'. I think this is the first time I’ve read something (three times now) and genuinely implemented what I’ve read. Like truly! It’s been a game changer my friend! I’m so grateful honestly. I have a lot more confidence in myself now, I’m kinder to myself too. Just so, so good now I’m more organised. I couldn’t have tackled this next chapter without you, I finally feel like a grown up (in the ways that are important) which has given me the space to be a more chilled happy person. Thank you so much my friend. Now to get back to chapter five and seven
A lifesaver! Like talking with a friend
Get Organised is well written - it is clear, has humour and feels like you’re sitting down and talking to an old friend about your life. The tips that Elle gives aren’t massive - but they add up. They are things that don’t seem completely overwhelming, this gave me the confidence to actually give them a shot rather than being discouraged! I have been a student, and now work as a bookkeeper as well as in a restaurant and try to juggle my puppy and my partner at the same time - Get Organised has given me time to breathe and enjoy myself
I'm still working through this, however I am already noticing positive changes to my life. I'm prioritising my values, I'm a lot less stressed which is highly beneficial for someone with psoriasis and I'm happier as a result! W(elle) done Elle. Love your work!
So helpful and bringing me clarity
I read through this once in full and then went back to it to complete the workbook part. It is well-written, thoughtful, fun to complete, and I feel like I am being guided by a friend in my journey to get organised. I highly recommend it!
Hey Elle, I’m absolutely loving the Get Organised program! I’ve recently had a lot of growth in my small business in a short amount of time and Get Organised has helped me put some processes and actions into place to feel a little less overwhelmed with the growth. 10/10 would recommend! Thanks Elle :)
Do yourself a favour… get it!
I have ADHD. I’m in my fourth and final year of my degree (with an hour and a half commute to class every day), working, living in a quite hectic shared household, & navigating the first years of married life! Get Organised has been life-changing. I cannot believe what I’ve been able to do after going through this program. I’ve cut out the mindless scrolling - dropped my screen time from 5+ hours/day to under an hour most days. I’ve managed to make myself a sanctuary inside my home, something to keep me inspired & calm, focused on what’s to come & what I can control. Let me repeat that - I’ve been FOCUSED. Get Organised kept me engaged with exercises & challenges & was so wonderful start to finish that I’m going through it a second time now to really soak in all the wisdom It’s clear this program was made with so much love and thought & I will cherish it forever (Get the physical copy!!). This is 100% a purchase you will thank yourself for over & over again!
Don’t want it to end!
I’m currently up to page 95 of 183 and feeling sad that I’m half way through! I have LOVED the book so far. I’m taking it slow and only reading a few pages at a time so that I really get the most out of it and implement the practical tips as I go. Elle has so much knowledge and wisdom and I’m really grateful she’s sharing it with us. At the start of the book she gets you to write about your ideal life and that was a surprisingly emotional and powerful exercise for me! You won’t regret buying this book. Thanks for making my life clearer and more organised Elle <3
Brilliant brilliant brilliant!
Firstly the book is absolutely gorgeous! It is a joy to hold and read. I’m choosing to read through it first and then go back and execute. I can already imagine what a lighter and more intention-filled life is going to be like for me. Highly recommend this for any one looking to sort out their life. Elle’s writing is light and inspiring, filled with personal anecdotes and wrapped with her charming sense of humor. Well done Elle!
If you are a SAHM, Get Organized is for you too!
First off if you are a stay at home mom buy the hard copy version. Not the digital. Reasons being: 1. Your child will see you reading a real book and not looking at a device. 2. It is high quality paper and I can attest that *most* spills will wipe off. 3. It is easy to chuck down quickly when your small child is about to make a bad decision and not lose your page due to the awesome spiral bound. It won’t close on you wasting the precious 5 seconds you have to get back to your page. Other reasons that Get Organized is great: •Elle doesn’t waste your time with repeating her quotes. She bolds the important moments and moves on. (Honestly, a pet peeve of mine when others just bold a repeated statement) • Elle will make you laugh, and it’s honestly like talking (well reading) with a friend, and we all know as SAHM’s friends and adult convos are hard to come by. On top of all of the great thought and time put into making a quality product, the information inside is amazing, (I haven’t finished it yet) but it inspires you when you read it, it makes you look at how you can streamline your life so that maybe, just maybe, you can get ten minutes to yourself daily! But in all seriousness, I didn’t know if it was going to be useful as a SAHM but it has brought a lot of clarity, new habits, and brought forth conversations that needed to happen with my partner (aka budgeting) that has really truly been beneficial
