Episode 22: 7 Top Home Organizing Questions Answered

You asked! I answered! On this week’s episode we change things up a bit. I am answering the 7 top Home Organizing questions that I have been asked lately. My goal is to help you as much as possible get organized so some of the following questions may be questions that you would love to have the answers to as well. The questions asked came from our community members of our Free Facebook group Organize for Success, our clients and those who attended a recent presentation that I held on 10 Top Organizing Tips that You can Start Doing Today.

The questions include:

I have numerous boxes and bags of paper. I have a small shredder and am always overwhelmed by what to shred and not shred. Taking it somewhere to shred is a good option but not in my budget. Suggestions?

What is the best way to organize clothes? Pants together, tops together, skirts together, or matching pants and tops together, everything by colour etc.?

My sewing room is overwhelmed with fabric, different textures, various colours, plain, printed etc. What is the best way to organize the fabric?

How are you trained? Is there any overseeing body such as a law society?

What are the steps to getting organized? Is it 1. Get rid of garbage, 2 sort, 3, declutter, 4 like with like and is 5 put away?

What should I do with all my photos and photo albums?

My mother passed away and I ended up with all her stuff. What do I do with it?

Don’t forget to join our FREE Facebook group “Organize for Success”. We would love to have you as part of our community.
