It’s Time for Another Org Junkie Video

Hey friends, thought I’d give you a peek into what my unedited videos look like.  I’m done with editing…blech.  Seriously, who has time for such things anyway?  Just kidding to all you editing geniuses, it’s all good :)

From now on though I’m one cut Laura, dorkiness and all!

So I’d love it if you’d chime in below with any video topics you’d like to see in the future.  I’m going to try to post videos more frequently, maybe.  If you tell me to stick with blogging and forget the videos well then I might do that too.  Want to see more, let me know!  Then let me know what to talk about :)  Gosh I’m bossy aren’t I?  Don’t answer that.

    Love it!! I posted some video book reviews on 5 Minutes for Books last year (, and I knew there was no way I was going to edit, so I just did it and posted!! I should do more.

    OMG I love this!!! You have inspired me to embrace my dorkiness!!! I cannot tell you the number of videos I did not post because I did not like the “dorkiness” of them. Awesome!!

    We love you for who you are! And you are an awesome inspiration to many. I’m really glad you decided to post this. Sometimes I think we develop these unrealistic ideals of who we *think* the people are behind the blogs. And we imagine them being perfect people. That’s just not the way it is! I think seeing the real you makes you much more approachable and likeable to everyone. I appreciate your ‘real-ness’ and I by all means don’t think you are a dork! I love your blog and the inspiration you give. Keep up the great work! :)

    Seriously, are you my sister? LOL! You are CRACKING ME UP! Okay you have to watch my dorky video. It has nothing to do with organizing but you’ll understand why I think we’re sisters. LOL!
    Keep doing videos! Love it!

      Too funny! I honestly didn’t even notice any lip smacking in your video at all but it sure drives me crazy when I watch my videos back and I think, why the heck do I keep doing that LOL.

      You are too cute!

    I love this! I have only done one vlog and I know I would be somewhat dorky too! Where are your other videos? I guess I can check on Youtube.

    I love your video. It’s important to be you not an edited you. As a new reader of your blog I appreciate getting to know you this way so please keep them unedited.
    Thanks for your inspiration – Karri

      Thanks Lynn! I hope it doesn’t take too much longer but I’ve been “working” on it for ages so we’ll see if I can get my act together :)

    Love it!! Was this a….”I look so HOT today! I look fantastic..I’ve gotta to get this on video?” lol

    I’d love a video on the steps you take in meal planning & saving money there not just the time-saver; laundry efficiency?..if you are on top of your laundry.

    You look great! Looking forward to more videos. : )

    Love the video! I think it’s great unedited. It’s more like you’re really just chatting with us. I’d say any topics that you blog about would also be good in a video post.

    Laura – I love you just the way you are!!! I think you should treat your readers to a video of you doing your hair with all your wonderful hair products – now that would be something to see!!

    Love it! Added this post with “link love” to my Monday Jan 30 post. Our readers will love it!

    Okay, I LOVE the “dorky” you, which is totally NOT dorky, by the way! Your laugh is my favorite part…absolutely contagious. Funny what you said about not editing so we could see the real you… I just made my first vlog and even WITH extreme editing and special effects, it’s an absolute freak show. The only thing missing is my signature cameltoe. LOL! I miss “seeing” you on a regular basis, now that the 52 Weeks program is over. :(

      Okay now I have to go check out your video for sure :) Forget the editing, who needs it!! So will you be joining the 29 Day Organizing Challenge in February? I hope so!

    oh dear it was like having you face to face and just loved your facial expressions! You make me laugh, my friend. Thanks for sharing and I love your blog and inspiration!
    How about organizing a chest freezer? I have thought about doing that. I have one and the other day I opened it and it was so full. I rearranged things in there and used a few things today. That helped. I tend to keep like items together but nothing but stacking stuff on top of each other. Bins probably would help, like dishpans to separate stuff? Some items in Tupperware. Just an idea! I did make a list of what I have which will help. And why is it so full? You may ask….well, found some great meal deals lately. BOGO meat deals at Safeway are great (buy one get one free–on certain meats listed in ad!) Have a good weekend!

    Okay, THAT made me laugh out loud. I loved the “What DO I want to know? ” lol I think leaving everything in one cut is great. I think the spots that are the best is when you have a fast-moving video, like having an outline of a topic you want to cover, and then just winging it like you were sitting down to coffee with a friend. Which is what I felt like. I hope you DO continue to post videos. But stop calling yourself a dork – clearly you’re NOT a dork, I read you. :)
