Under the sink areas are often highly under utilised. First and foremost get all that stuff out from under there! Give the shelves a clean. and you are ready to go. Consolidate the like items together. Bin any that are out of date or no longer used. Allocate those like items into storage containers.

Australian based research on organising has, in the view of the Executive Committee, been long overdue and thankfully some members also share this view. While in the very early stages, AAPO plans to set up a Task Force and initiate the first steps towards Australian based research and statistics and some of the many benefits include: AAPO and members will have the ability to talk with confidence about statistics within their...

Get a Head Start to the Morning

Mornings can be rough, especially if you haven’t had enough sleep things you need for the day ahead aren’t ready there are lots of people with lots of needs at your house or there are lots of people heading to different locations But mornings can be easier if you a) keep things simple, b) have a routine that works and c) start preparations the night before.

I want to be a Professional Organiser. What do I have to do?

Nothing. Well, ok, slight exaggeration. Of course Professional Organisers (POs) work hard, with most being solo or small business owners. The stats in Australia tell us that it takes between 2 – 5 years for a small business to be successful (profitable). We also know, that these 2-5 years involve long hours, hard work, lots of learning and adapting to an ever-changing market place. As a relatively new and emerging industry,...

Why I'll Never Have Another Garage Sale

I am not a fan of the Garage Sale. Let me tell you why. Firstly, the time they take to set up, run and pack down far outweighs any financial gain. Believe me, I can think of a million better ways to spend a day, mostly with the ones I love. Secondly, I resent the intrusion. I don’t like strangers poring over my things, haggling over prices, arriving way too early...

A Happy Ending by Susanne Thiebe

7th Oct 13
Last week in the Brenner household... we had the epic drama of loosing something. You see, we have three boys between the age of 10 and 15. The middle one bought himself a tablet a couple of month ago, but last week he didn’t follow rules regarding computer play time, and after a couple of warnings, the tablet was taken off him. And because these things always happen more or less...

With climate change, greenhouse emissions and every single person leaving a carbon footprint, you may think that nothing can be done to help our environment. But even the smallest amount of reusing materials designated for landfill will ensure we have a more sustainable environment for future generations, and you can be organised as well, helping the environment and being organised, a win-win situation for everyone. I love gift giving and giving...

Spring clean your garden

7th Sep 13
Just like our lives and our office or home, our garden needs a spring clean at this time of year. We have developed a checklist for you to ensure you get the most from your garden over the warmer months. In preparation for summer, mulch the whole garden to insulate it against the heat. Remove all weeds and encroaching grass first and ensure your mulch is 5cm thick. Use slow-release fertiliser...
