173 - Everything You Want to Know About the Sunday Basket
2 days ago
I’m REALLY excited to share this week’s podcast episode with you. It’s been a long time coming. In fact, a few months ago I promised to make a whole episode about my Sunday Basket™ Workshops when I got them all figured out. Well, guess what. I did! This is the episode telling you everything that you need to know. The Evolution of The Sunday Basket™ Anyone who knows me, and all fans of Organize 365, pretty much must know about my Sunday Basket™. It's something that I’ve mentioned, oh, perhaps maybe once or twice! I truly believe that the Sunday Basket™ is a simple,yet revolutionary concept that can really help you run your house, stay on top of your to-dos, and keep track of your ideas. It all started 15 years ago when I was trying to figure out my own way to stop drowning in the ever-growing piles of paperwork, bills, lists, and everything that landed on my kitchen counter! My Sunday Basket™ concept has been the feature of many of my blog posts, podcast episodes, and a book. This spring, I launched my Sunday Basket™ Virtual Workshops and I was blown away with their popularity! Not only did their popularity blow me away, but something else really surprised me and that was WHY people were attending my virtual workshops. It wasn’t what I had thought! It wasn’t necessarily to learn what a Sunday Basket™ was, or how to use it, it was more for ACCOUNTABILITY. People were attending because they knew that they’d get the job done… there and then… and feel a lot better for it! This brought me back to 2012 when I ran paper organizing workshops in my home in Cincinnati, Ohio. Similar to the virtual workshops, people usually came to my in-home workshops for accountability and reassurance. Reassurance about their organizing habits and reassurance that it’s okay to get rid of things! In the podcast episode, I share with you a few funny stories about this! The Birth of the Sunday Basket™ Workshop Licensing System I had a light bulb moment. The virtual workshops have many merits and they work, but actually meeting and talking to people in person is much more impactful. So I established the Sunday Basket™ Licensing System, whereby licensees could hold their own Sunday Basket™ Workshops around the country based on l

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!
