160 - Decluttering Madness Week 4: the Garage
6 days ago
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.

Too much personal promotion
I really get a lot of helpful tips on organizing and even subscribe to the mailing list, but am often annoyed by the amount of promotion Lisa does about her books. I would be comfortable betting that 1/3 of her podcasts are promotions for her books. I literally don't listen to the last 1/4 of the show because of the self-promotion. I want to give this podcast 5 stars but the promotion just kills it for me.

One of my favourite, all-time podcasts!
Lisa is fantastic! I have listened to a bunch of "organization"-themed podcasts, and they can either be really slow-moving, obvious, or even sanctimonious, where the hosts can be really dry, boring or almost boastful about their perfect lives. Lisa, on the other hand, has a TON of great tips and systems, but more than that, she is really energetic, engaging, and talks freely about how she has tried things that haven't worked, and that organization is a process that needs to be revamped and updated as need be. I love listening to her podcasts, and I have found them to be really helpful. Her energy is contagious! Even in the rare case when I'm not really hankering to know about a certain topic, like car organization, I will generally listen to that podcast, and I will thoroughly enjoy listening to Lisa's voice, and hearing about her ideas, and without fail, I'll pick up some helpful tips, or new ways of doing things. I can't recommend her highly enough!
