Organizing Made Easy

Are these your drawers?

Are these your drawers?

Last night I had the pleasure of presenting Organizing Made Easy, in Harleysville, PA (just north of Philadelphia). If I had only known that the Phillies were going to be in the World Series, I would not have scheduled the seminar last night – it was game one of the World Series. My hats off to all those Phillies’ fans (including me) who attended.  Those who attended were able to learn how to get organized AND catch the end of the Phillies game at home. And you were rewarded with a win!

As usual, the participants were delightful. We had the typical audience with only one person having their spices in alphabetical order. They were quite surprised to learn that if you have a McCormick spice in a can, other than black pepper, it is over 15 years old. If you would like to see how old any of your McCormick spices are go to www.spicecheckchallenge.com

Only one person in attendance already stores her socks and underwear vertically in her drawers. I demonstrated how this simple vertical approach maximizes the space in drawers. They saw the huge benefit, but I’m not quite sure if they believe me that you can “retrain your socks.” Nevertheless, it is true and well worth the chuckle.

With laughter and jaws dropping, the 2-hours went by quickly. Before everyone left they received a package of 3M Command Strips™. If you have never used Command Strips before, you don’t know what you are missing! Command Strips™ allow to you decorate and organize damage free. If you would like a coupon to try Command Strips™, click here.

At the conclusion of the evening, many expressed an interest in attending two other upcoming seminars Paper Management and Time Management for Self-Happiness.  Be sure to register early as the seminars can sell out.

If you attended Organizing Made Easy , share your thoughts, questions, or successes. What was your favorite tip? What did you change first? How did you use your Command Strips™?

Moms & Mentors Getting Organized

Moms & Mentors Learning How to Get Organized

Today I had the pleasure of presenting “Organizing Made Easy” to Moms & Mentors in North Wales, PA (just outside of Philadelphia). I thoroughly enjoyed speaking to these 60 delightful women. They were an exceptional group.  With their intelligence, warmth, and humor, I could have spoken the entire day. I don’t know who had more fun, them or I, as laughter and learning filled the hour and a half that we spent together. I also was quite impressed with their lavish spread of food and beverage fountain – take a look at the photo.

In attendance we had those of different organizing calibers – those who had their spices in alphabetical order and those who did not (about 95% not’s). We had those who had their clothes in color order and those who did not (about 85% not’s). Everyone seemed to get a chuckle out of “retraining” your socks. We even laughed more discussing the “A” word when in comes to organizing.

Afterwards, a number of people inquired about attending additional seminars to get organized. The timing couldn’t be more perfect as I am presenting three more 2-hour seminars just around the corner from North Wales, in Harleysville PA. The seminars are each Wednesday, 7 to 9 PM, October 22th through November 5th. The upcoming seminars are:  Organizing Made Easy – Room by Room; Paper Management; and Time Management for Self-Happiness,

If you attended Moms & Mentors, share your thoughts and organizing successes! What was your favorite tip or topic? What made you laugh the most? What was the first thing you organized when you got home?
