Collaborative Consumption - Sally Hart

25th Aug 13
The theme of Reduce, Rethink, Reorganise was whole heartedly embraced at the recent AAPO Annual Conference. National Organising Week gives us the opportunity to share this theme with you as Professional Organisers. With the sad statistic of 99% of all items purchased being landfill within 6 months we are using up the planet's resources at the rate of 1.5 planets per year--not sustainable! We need to Re-think! Lisa Fox, of Open...

National Organising Week - the perfect time to make an Impact

NOW is the time to stop, look around and think about how disorganisation is affecting your wellbeing. We all know that feeling of overwhelm; when life is full of “stuff” and out of control. Whether it’s because we waste hours looking for things we know we have somewhere, or spend money paying late fees on overdue bills or just that deflated feeling we get walking into room that looks more like...

The Power of Priorities

Definition of Priority = Prime concern, first concern, primary issue, most pressing matter Reacting to everything that comes across your desk as it arrives will result in chaos. The person who shouts loudest will get the most attention and often your most profitable clients who are quiet and patient receive the least attention. Working in chaos often results in running around putting out fires – you turn your focus to one...

Email Management

Who’s in charge? Here is how you can manage your inbox if you use Outlook 2007. The menu items in more recent versions would be similar – this information tells you what to look for! Manage You Block out a set amount of time to check and respond to emails and STICK to it, e.g. 10 mins every 2 hours. Prioritise what you need to reply to on the spot. Knock...

Reorganise to fit within our current footprint

When you have limited space to work with, don’t forget vertical space. Adding hooks, racks and rails to any room in the house lifts frequently used items up off your flat surfaces. Hang your utensils and crockery in the kitchen, tools in the garage, and newspapers and magazines in the living room. You can still see what you have but it doesn’t get in the way. Adding extra shelves to existing...

The cliché that one person’s trash is another person’s treasure almost always rings true, but how do you match your unwanted tennis gear with the right donation center so your old racket meets...

Energy Saving Light Bulbs

We have all forgotten to turn off a light and hours later we walk back into the room and curse ourselves. To help solve this problem look out for the "12 Minute Timer" bulbs from Ringgrip, they are great. After a light has been left on for 11 minutes it starts to blink, that tells you, you have 1 minute before the light goes out. They are great for pantries, wardrobes,...
