I’m so excited! I’ve wanted to start these Paper Organizing Retreats for years. When I began Organize 365 in 2012, I knew I needed...

More
It’s finally time to talk about the NEW Friday Workboxes! I’ve worked on the Friday Workboxes for a very long time (and by that, I mean three years), so I feel like they’re more than ready to go out into the world and start changing people’s lives! If you want to take a trip down memory lane with me and travel back to around two years and four months ago, that was when I first introduced the idea of a Friday Workbox with you. Time flies, huh?

With summer literally on our doorsteps, preparing your kids for the new school year is probably the last thing you want to think about – and I don’t blame you! You’ve got your vacation planned and you’re ready to start enjoying your summer break. BUT there’s just one little thing that you have to do first – clean out your child’s backpack! It doesn’t take long to clean out a backpack. In fact, I’m willing to guess that it shouldn’t take longer than 15 minutes per bag and, once you do it,...

How many times have you looked at a box of papers that needed sorting and thought to yourself, “If only Lisa could work her magic and organize my paper for me?” I’ve even had people ask me, “Can I just box up my papers and mail it to you? Like… seriously?” And the answer is YES! I can totally organize your paper for you, and no, you’re not dreaming (pinch yourself if you don’t believe me!) I’m excited to announce the launch of my new Complete Paper Organization Service, which is...

How To Eliminate Slash Pockets If you’re anything like me, you’re probably thinking about preparing your Sunday Basket for the summer! It’s an exciting time, isn’t it? There’s something oddly satisfying about starting a fresh Sunday Basket – it’s like a new beginning. One of the questions that I get asked a lot is: “What should I do with the slash pockets I rarely use in my Sunday Basket?” It's an excellent question for this time of year because, chances are, you’ve got a lot of...

New Binder Printables Over the last few weeks, I’ve shared my binders and revealed how I modified them to suit my personal needs and lifestyle. It’s important to understand that no organizational product is going to work 100% for your situation – and that’s okay! It doesn’t have to be perfect. My Sunday Baskets and the Organize 365 binders are built with YOU in mind, which means you can adapt and modify the binders however you like. Since you guys mean the world to me, I wanted to do...

Lisa's Binders Part 1 I’m so excited to have introduced you to the paper organizing binders in the last couple of episodes, but not having the right products is only one part of why we’re not organized. The other reason we’re not organized is because the task of getting organized is overwhelming and is multi-layered. This is why I love the Sunday Basket Workshops because they are not just for creating and doing your Sunday Basket, it’s the first step in getting all of your papers...

Organizing Taxes & Files On this week’s Sunday Basket Podcast, I share three things that I do to organize my files and tax documents. 1. Collecting tax documents Collecting, organizing, and preparing tax documentation is overwhelming. I think it is because the information you need comes to you in a trickle through the mail, your email inbox, and your own receipts. Little by little, every day for weeks like Chinese water torture.

How To Sort Paper Part 2 What To Do With The Paper You Have Saved Now that you have decided on the papers that can be recycled and those that can be shredded, it’s time to organize the paperwork that you need to save.
