Organize 365 Podcast: Home organization |Paper management | Productivity | Professional Organizer Lisa Woodruff | Sunday Basket (general)

The last two weeks, I talked about how I have used a mentor/coach and a business bestie to grow my mind and my business. This week, I am talking about YOU.

This Organize 365 community is a family... at least it feels like one to me.

This podcast is another rambling one where I share how I got here and where I think we are all going collectively.

There are a whole bunch of links I mention in the podcast and you can find those all here: https://organize365.com/166

The book The Power of When will help you understand your body’s natural chronotype and how to use that information to achieve your personal goals in organizing your home and living a more productive life.

I used the information in this book to understand how and why the members of our family choose to do daily routine tasks at different times of day and how to best support my kids as they become adults.

Clean out and back up the cars - because we are going to FILL them!

Designate one car for donations and one for items that need to be delivered, returned or consigned.  

Next decide how long you have to work on this project at ONE time. 

If you have 2 hours or more - EMPTY the garage. You know it's true. Once the items are OUT of the garage it is as easy to donate them as it is to put them back in the garage. 

The garage houses all of the future projects we "think" we are going to do.

The biggest work you are going to do is DECIDE if you really are going to do those ideas and projects. 

In the podcast I talk about how I no longer have flower gardens, why I easily donate items we have purchased and never used and how we need better tools. 

It's a funny listen. And will keep you going while you declutter guilt and expectations in the form of flower pots and old sporting equipment.

Check your storage solutions.

Now is the time to invest in a few plastic shelving units to organize what you have left and buy organizers specific to what YOU have in your garage.

Keep going! You can do this!

Keep decluttering all the way until March 31!!

I want you to focus on decluttering and your Sunday Basket this month so…

The 100 Day Home Organization Challenge registration is closed. Join the wait list here and you will be the first to be notified when it reopens.

No one wants to go down here. I know.

If you haven't listened to the "How to Sort a Box" podcast. It is podcast #150 and goes along with today’s podcast #159

Ok. The basement.

In this space you need a leader who will direct the family. - Usually mom.

The leader goes down and starts sorting boxes and items into family members' piles. And then each family member (one at a time) will come down, make decisions and carry the donations up.

-HINT-

Preparation is KEY here! The more the leader prepares, the quicker the decisions go and the more gets donated. 

There is no denying that basements, attics and storage rooms ZAP energy and are the HARDEST areas to organize!

Everything is down there because you don't know what to do with it. ;)

So pace yourself. Each bag and box donated is a HUGE win!

Keep going. You can do this!

Don't forget to download the family and individual brackets to play along. View the get started post for "rules". :)

This is the LAST day to register for the Sunday Basket workshops.

Start tackling that storage room… one box at a time.

The 80/20 Sales and Marketing book By Perry Marshall is so much more than a business sales book. Even after listening/ reading this book 10 times I still cannot comprehend all the concepts Perry expounds on.

Understanding the 80/20 rule – that 80% of ____ is done/ achieved/ consumed by 20% of the people is powerful.

But Perry adds the 10x dimension to his understanding of the 80/20 rule and takes the possibilities of implementation to a whole new stratosphere.

If 80% of your time at home is spent in 20% of the rooms… what if those rooms were perfectly organized?

The first step in organizing the family room is to stop and think about what you really do in this space. 
 
Do you still watch DVDs or do you stream your entertainment?
 
If your youngest child is in 2nd grade it is OK to move all the toys out of the family room.
 
If your youngest child is in middle school all their toys can be in their room.
