What's in a Name?

Most people working in the Organising field call themselves Professional Organisers (or Organizers in America). And yet people looking for Organising help, often refer to them as Personal Organisers. So what’s in a name? I asked my fellow Organisers to offer their opinions on the title of “Professional Organiser”. Thank you to the 53 Organisers who completed the survey. Of these, 46 call themselves Professional Organisers, 1 Personal Organiser and 6...

What is a Recycling Station?

Recycling stations are drop off/collection points where you can drop off things to be recycled. I am always on the lookout for them. Officeworks were one of our fabulous sponsors at the 2013 AAPO National Conference. They have a strong commitment to protecting our environment and doing their bit to reduce waste to landfill. Taking prime position in their stores you will find a Recycling Station for ink cartridges and mobile...

Why I love what I do

12th May 14
It has been over three years now since I decided to become a Professional Organiser after a friend suggested I should undertake a career move from that of general management, project management and marketing. I still thank her for pointing me in this direction where I am able to help others achieve better organisation and balance in their lives. I love making a difference! As a Professional Organiser and a member...

Rethink, Reorganise Paperwork

Without a doubt, paperwork is the one organising challenge that comes up again and again in all aspects of an Organiser’s work. Whether in running a business, or a household, or your life, paperwork can be problematic. What do you keep? Where do you keep it? How long do you keep it for? Rumours and misinformation run riot. So here’s a very simple starting point for taking control of your paperwork...

Rethink Your Kitchen

The process of de-cluttering is not only a great way to de-stress and save time but detox your space. Today kitchens carry out many roles apart from the obvious of preparing meals; kitchens can house our laundry, our home office, entertaining and family meeting room. Yes things have really changed since the kitchen was tacked onto the back of the house; although they were simple, it worked. Maybe it worked because...

Make your Heart Sing

It’s not uncommon when I meet people for the first time, to discover that they feel unable to enjoy spending time on their favourite activities and hobbies, until they've got absolutely everything decluttered and organised at home. It can feel as if doing the good stuff is a reward for all the hard work; and if there is still work to be done, then there is no freedom to have any...

Get rid of the Black Hole of a Toy Box!

Yes the toy box can be a Black Hole: a complete set of a toy goes in, some pieces never see daylight again. The result is a frustrated child. Minimise the frustration of lost pieces by trying the following: Rotate the Toys Rotating toys allows for say half to be put away out of sight for a short while. The benefit is apart from less mess and fewer toys out at...

Reduce, Rethink, Reorganise Books

One thing I get asked about a LOT is books. I love books myself. But since downsizing to an inner-city apartment, I choose to devote much less space to them. So here’s how you can Reduce, Rethink and Reorganise books. Reduce the books you keep on your shelf. Once you’ve read a book, send it on to someone else who can enjoy it. If there are books you’ve never read, evaluate...

At what cost??

24th Mar 14
I hear so many reasons why people don't get organised. "I have no TIME", "I have no MONEY", "My stuff isn't HURTING anyone", "I might NEED it one day", "I can organise it LATER". TIME How much of your time is wasted looking for items like keys, important papers, lists, phones, shoes? Lets do a little exercise. Lets say you spend 5 minutes a day looking for items that aren't in...

How clutter can impacts your family's health

5.2 billion $ a year are wasted in Australia on food that’s bought but doesn’t get eaten. With a projected population of 30,074,387 for January2014 that is $172 per person per year. For an average family of four: $688 per year. A big enough amount of money to start thinking and changing something. A considerable amount of production cost, packaging and transport wasted. What’s the ecological footprint of that sum and...
