Take Note ~ May 20th


A few great links I’ve been saving up to share with you that I hope you’ll like.

Real Simple and The Container Store have teamed up to bring you The Organized Home Sweepstakes!

Enter today and every day (click on the button above) between now and June 15th for a chance to win $3,000 in organizing merchandise along with the help of a professional organizer!  Now that’s what I’m talking about!


The other day I read an excellent guide on Clutter Free Gift Giving, something I’m all for.  It’s available on the site of Professional Organizer, Paula Constable.  It is a FREE guide however you do have to sign up for her newsletter to access it.  Normally I wouldn’t promote something like that but it’s a great report with a great message so I’ll let you decide if you want to sign up to get it.  You’ll find the sign up box on the sidebar of Paula’s blog, Organizing Tips and Thoughts for Moms.


Aby Garvey from Simplify 101 has a new workshop starting on June 2nd.  In this Organizing 101 Online Workshop you’ll learn how to move from feeling overwhelmed to feeling motivated, inspired and empowered to get organized—once and for all.  Updated to add: I just found out that Aby is going to offer a FREE organizing workshop next week titled “Help! I don’t know where to begin”.  What a great way to see if you like the online workshop format.  Sign up here!


I discovered this link on the Girl Talk blog last week and just had to share it with you.  It is an amazing and powerful story of hope from a young 37 year old mother dying of cancer.  It touched me immensely.  Death is Not Dying: A Faith that Saves.  It is 55 minutes long but so worth it.


My friend Tanna from Complete Organizing Solutions is running a Paper Less Living Series where you’ll discover simple solutions for downsizing your paper pile up.  I know this is a trouble spot for a lot of people so I wanted to be sure to pass it along.


Finally, you might remember a couple of weeks ago I mentioned finding Gail Vaz Oxlade’s blog.  Gail is a financial guru and television host of Till Debt Do Us Part.  Recently I thought two of her posts were fitting to link from here.  When You Can’t Let Go talks about how hard it is to let go of our stuff and the three questions you can ask yourself to help keep you on track.  The second blog post called Try Versus Do is referring to getting out of debt but can certainly also be applied to organizing.  Are you trying to get organized or are you getting organized?
