Profitable Organizer's Black Friday Special Is Live!

Happy Black Friday everyone!  Hope you've already found some great bargains.  Just remember not to fill your home with "deals" that end up becoming clutter :)

OK, on to the post.  On Monday and Wednesday I shared links to Cynthia Murray's videos about why professional organizing is a great career and case studies of people who wanted to become professional organizers but weren't sure how to get started

Cynthia's 3rd video on professional organizing and her Black Friday special are now live!  

[Update: this sale is over, but you can still get free information about joining Profitable Organizer by clicking here.]

For those of you who have been waiting (with bated breath I'm sure!) for the kitchen post I promised yesterday, I'm sorry, but I've decided to put the series on hold until January.

An Advent "Calendar" of Christmas Books

Do you have Christmas books that your children enjoy reading at Christmas?  Do you sometimes run out of time to read them and pack them away for the following year unread?  Do your kids enjoy opening presents? 

We have lots of Christmas books that my kids enjoy reading together, but sometimes those books get overshadowed by all the other activities at Christmas.  

I knew I needed to organize a way to ensure that we actually made that time.  Here's what I did last year to solve this problem and we enjoyed every single one of our Christmas books!

Want to Get Paid To Organize?

I'll be publishing a post in a little while about my kitchen cupboards, but first I want to let you know about a brand new organizing video.

Organizing Ideas for the Weekend: Planning for Christmas

Happy Friday!  Ready for another organizing idea for your weekend?

Christmas is just over a month away!  Does that make you excited or stressed?  Maybe a bit of both.  Most of us want to be able to enjoy ourselves during this special season.  But we often have so many tasks on our to-do list and so many events on our calendars that we end up being overwhelmed and tired throughout the month.

In order to experience more peace and joy, it's important to plan ahead and simplify as much as possible.  I'll be sharing lots of ideas in the next few weeks about this, and I'm going to kick things off today by sharing some Christmas planners and printables to help you get organized.

Christmas Gifts in a Jar

Do you have some "hard-to-buy-for" people on your Christmas list?  Are you looking for gift ideas that don't create clutter for the recipient?

One of my most popular posts year round is Gifts in a Jar.  In that post I showed how our kids make jar gifts for their teachers.  Their teachers love receiving these jars because they are unique and clutter free!

Today, I want to show you the Christmas jars we made last year.  Hopefully it will help you fill in a few ideas on your Christmas gift list!

Organize Stuffed Animals On the Back of a Door!

Do your kids have stuffed animals all over their beds, dressers, bookshelves, or, let's be honest here, their floors?  I'm convinced those creatures make babies during the night.  And asking kids to part with them is like tearing out their limbs! 

Yesterday I shared pictures from my visit to The Container Store (A.K.A. A Little Piece of Organizing Heaven).  Today I want to show you what I bought there (that could fit in my suitcase and within my budget!) and how it has helped keep my kids' stuffed animals and other toys organized.

{This is not a sponsored post... I just had a really fun time here and want to share it with you :) }

I've Made Some Changes On This Blog!

You may have noticed over the last little while that I've been slowly making some changes to the layout and design of this blog.  If not, that's OK... you were probably focused on all the decluttering you were doing last month right?!

If you're a recent follower, first of all, WELCOME!  Second, I apologize if you thought I was changing things every day.  I don't usually don't do that.  In fact, I set up most of the design and layout initially on this blog when I started it a year and a half ago, and I haven't really changed it much since.  Until recently.

I really wanted to make my blog easier for you to navigate.  I wanted you to be able easily find what you were looking for.  Or even to find things you didn't know you were looking for, but that you actually needed to see :)  So I made some changes to help you out. 

Stick around the next few days while I take you on a tour!  I know your time is precious and limited so I'll show you how you can get the most out of the time you spend on this blog so you can find all the organizing tips you need!
