Okay, get to it!

By the end of the week your bag has become a black hole filled with random receipts, gum wrappers, loose change, and that random flyer the guy handed you on the way to work. Empty out all the unnecessary things you've collected and organize the important stuff so you know where everything is. It'll make your life seem a little more ~together~.

3. Go shopping for the whole week.

4. Prep lots of healthy snacks so you'll never go hangry.

5. Prepare Monday morning breakfast.

6. Throw some stuff in a crockpot.

7. Write your Monday-morning to-do list.

8. And make a weekly goals list of all the big things you want to accomplish.

9. Take some time for yourself.

10. And also make some time to catch up with family and friends.

11. Hang up your clothes and put your closet back in order.

12. And then check the weather forecast for the week, and plan out your outfits for the next five days.

13. And do the same with your gym clothes.

14. Find great pump-up playlists that go with every activity.

Set aside some time to create some awesome playlists that will help you finish all your tasks in no time. Or you can use apps like Songza, 8Tracks, or Spotify that have great options already put together for you – like "Shut Up and Clean With Me" or "We need a Montage".

Here’s how to put together a killer list of jams and here are 26 workout playlists for every human ever.

15. Empty all your garbage cans and get the trash ready for pick-up day.

16. Get outside.

This app challenges you to clean your place in 5, 10, or 20 minute intervals, and will reward you with rest breaks after finishing different challenges. It also uses a little profanity, shaming, and guilt to keep you motivated.

If that doesn't sound like your thing you can try these 22 tricks that will help you speed-clean your house or apartment.

18. Wash your sheets and towels.

19. Find something that inspires you to stay motivated throughout the week.

21. Set an alarm to remind yourself when to start powering down for bedtime.
