Get Organized this Fall at Manulife Centre


Whether you are getting your kids ready for back to school, yourself prepared for getting back into the grind or simply wanting to get your head in the game after the summer,  here are our top tips for getting organized (with a little help from our fabulous retailers).

 

LIVE THAT BULLET JOURNAL LIFE

It’s hard to exist in 2019 without having heard about bullet journaling, the journaling method developed by Ryder Carroll that uses dotted notebooks to provide a customized, flexible and incredibly personalized daily agenda. The flexible system allows you to customize your bullet journal for every situation, whether you are trying to get on top of your family’s busy schedule, launching a new product at work, managing homework or prepping for exams. If you’re looking to get into bullet journaling or you’re already on your 7th full notebook, Indigo Bay Bloor has an incredible selection of bullet journal-ready notebooks to get you started, including the preferred notebook of Ryder Carroll himself, the leuchtturm1917 dotted notebook, as well as a wonderful selection of pens, markers and highlighters to enhance your experience.

Want to take your bullet journal skills to the next level? Indigo Bay Bloor is hosting a special Brush Calligraphy Workshop on September 23rd at 7PM here at their Manulife Centre store. Details here.

 

MEAL PREP LIKE A PRO

There’s nothing like going into the week with a meal plan. This is especially true when you’re managing not just your job and your commute, but also the various activities and obligations of your family. Luckily Bloor Street Market is conveniently located here at Manulife Centre so you can fit in the grocery shopping when it suits you most, giving you more time to prep. Plus, their incredible and varied selection of produce and products will both ensure you can pick up all of your meal prep staples while also inspiring you to try something new.

Looking for a recipe idea for a quick weeknight supper? This One-Pan Greek Chicken and Potato Nachos recipe from President’s Choice is sure to satisfy even the pickiest of eaters. Bonus: you’ll definitely have enough for lunch the next day!

 

FIND A NEW EVENING ROUTINE

There’s nothing that will prepare you for sleep and the day ahead more than an evening routine that helps you wind down and provides a little self care while you’re at it. Fall is the perfect time to revamp your skincare routine, and there’s no better place to do it than at the Beauty Boutique at Shoppers Drug Mart. With their wide selection of high quality products, knowledgeable staff and opportunities to save big with PC-Optimum points, the Beauty Boutique will help you find your perfect evening self-care routine that will allow you to take a few moments out of the day just for you.

 

IMPROVE YOUR SLEEP

If the evening routine is not enough to improve your sleep, it’s time to pull out all the stops. Lull yourself to sleep with soothing sounds while blocking out any background noise (city sounds, your resident snorer, the hum of your dishwasher running overnight…) with the Bose Noise Masking Sleep Buds, available at Bay Bloor Radio. Their slim profile and soft materials make them comfortable to wear all night, and the accompanying app also serves as an alarm, so you can wake up early to start your morning routine without disturbing the sleep of anyone else.

The Bose Noise Masking Sleep Buds are $70 off at Bay Bloor Radio for a limited time, so be sure to visit their store soon to try them out!
