11- Paper Organizing Retreats

My second big announcement from the Organize 365 National Convention is the exciting news that we are going to have Paper Organizing Retreats! That’s right, you can literally pack up all of your paper into boxes, travel to Cincinnati, and organize your paper during a productive weekend retreat with key members of the Organize 365 Team – how awesome is that? I’m so excited! I’ve wanted to start these Paper Organizing Retreats for years. When I began Organize 365 in 2012, I knew I needed to launch a unique organizing retreat where people could bring their paper and organize all of it (while listening to some great music and snacking on delicious food as we go) – it was the PERFECT plan. But it took six years to turn that vision into a reality, and in many ways, I’m glad it took so long because now I’m 100% sure that I’ve come up with the best products, best structure, and the best team possible. After six years of long hours and lots of hard work, we have finally done it! Orga...

10 - Organize 365 Friday Workboxes

It’s finally time to talk about the NEW Friday Workboxes! I’ve worked on the Friday Workboxes for a very long time (and by that, I mean three years), so I feel like they’re more than ready to go out into the world and start changing people’s lives! If you want to take a trip down memory lane with me and travel back to around two years and four months ago, that was when I first introduced the idea of a Friday Workbox with you. Time flies, huh? It may have taken a few years to get here, but it took that long to make sure the Friday Workboxes would be as awesome as possible. And as the saying goes, it’s “better late than never,” right? Friday WorkboxesAre For Home-BasedBusinesses Are you an entrepreneur or the owner of a home-based business? If you are, the Friday Workboxes are PERFECT for you! There are four Friday boxes available, including a box for: Direct Sales Home Schooling Entrepreneurs Teachers (this one will be available July 1st) If you’re familiar with the Sunday Ba...

9 - Sunday Basket 2.0

Sunday Basket2.0? Congratulations! If you have been following along with my podcast episodes, you have gotten your Sunday Basketall set up and are on week two of using it. But I bet you are still feeling a little overwhelmed. The number one thing that makes you feel overwhelmed when starting to use the Sunday Basketis that not everything fits into the first 5 pockets. I mean, where do you put your recipes, your business or small project paperwork? The first 5 pockets that you set up are called Sunday Basket1.0 and these are for tasks you do every single week like paying your bills, updating your calendar, placing orders online, and so on. These 5 pockets will save you time and will save your sanity, but the beauty of the Sunday Basketis when you take it to Sunday Basket2.0 level. What is Sunday Basket2.0? I thought about how I use my Sunday Basketand what works best for me, but it took me a while to figure out how to teach you to do the same thing. And the products I wanted to do th...

Step 5 - Can It Wait Until NEXT Sunday? If you’ve been listening to my podcasts in real time (on the day that they were released), then you’ll know that this podcast episode was released on the first Sunday of 2018. I am so excited about this. If you’ve listened to episodes 1-7, then today is the end of my daily episodes of the Sunday BasketPodcast (they'll be released weekly from now on). If you have been following along and taking action with each episode, then you’re almost done with your Sunday Basket. I’m picturing all of the Sunday Baskets that have been created all over the world. I’m picturing all the women that are taking control of their to-do lists that have been sucking away their time, energy, and causing stress. Every podcast episode, from episode 1 through to this episode, is actionable. They all have an action for you to complete. We have emptied our Sunday Basketcompletely. We've gotten rid of all items that needed shredding or recycling. We have opened all of...

7 - Step 4 - Plan Your Week

Step 4 - Plan Your Week In this podcast episode and blog post, I’m so excited to share with you my free weekly planning printables. Head to the homepageand you’ll see that when you sign up for my newsletter, you get a copy of my planning printables, too. The planning printables are something that I created years ago. I’ve realized that, although I’ve moved to a Google Calendar as my planner for the day-to-day, sometimes I just need paper, too! On a Sunday night, when I’m doing my Sunday Basket, I flesh out a plan for my week ahead (using my planning printables). I love writing my plan out. I find that physically writing something down on a piece of paper creates a different connection within your brain in relation to that task, as opposed to making a digital record. I recognize that planning your week ahead is an extra task on a Sunday for you to complete, but I promise that in doing so, you’ll see that your week flows so much easier and in a far more organized way. You’ll al...

6 - Step 3 - Take Action!

Step 3 - Take Action! I hope you’re enjoying The Sunday BasketPodcast so far. If you’ve been following along with the podcast episodes, then you should have three piles of your actionable items from your Sunday Basket. Your three actionable piles are: Mail & Money: Bills and things to be mailed Errands & Outside The House: Errands and items that you need to buy or do outside of the home Computer & Calendar: Items that need to be put on your computer, on your calendar, or you need to order them on your computer The next part takes up the bulk of your Sunday Baskettime. It can take you anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours to work on these piles. Before we get going, I want to let you know that the Sunday Basketis all about you. While I may talk about your kids, your spouse, and your extended family, the Sunday Basketis about YOU. It’s about your time, your to-do's, and your calendar. It applies to any woman, of any generation, anywhere in the world. Your first action now is to sit d...

Step 2 - Your Top 3 Sunday BasketPiles If you listened to the last podcast episode and followed along taking action, then currently you have a completely empty Sunday Basket. You also have a big pile of paper that requires action. You've gotten rid of anything that can be shredded or recycled. You've opened up all of your mail and only kept the parts that you need to take action on. Phew! Now everything in front of you needs to be acted upon. There are three things that are in every person’s Sunday Basket. Mail & Money: Bills and things to be mailed Errands & Outside The House: Errands and items that you need to buy or do outside of the home Computer & Calendar: Items that need to be put on your computer, on your calendar, or you need to order something on your computer Almost all actionable items in your Sunday Basketeach week fall into one of those three categories. I want you to make three piles according to the three categories above. In the next podcast episode, I’m going to ...

Step 1 - Shred, Recycle, Open & Sort The next five podcasts go through exactly what to do with the items that you have in your Sunday Basket. When you sit down to do your Sunday Basket, follow the actions that I talk about in this podcast episode and the following four podcasts, too. There are two key actions that lead to the success of the Sunday Basket... first, to completely empty it every time, and second, you must go through it every single week! Before you get started, make sure you find a place that you’re comfortable sitting while you complete a project. For me, it’s sitting on my bed or the floor. I make too many piles to do it at the table! Also, have your trash bin next to you and a space for a recycling pile. Step 1: Empty your Sunday Basket By empty, I mean completely empty. Take everything out of your basket. Move your empty basket to the side. The only things going back into your empty basket are the things that can wait until next Sunday.

Fill Your Sunday Basket It’s time to fill your Sunday Basket! If you’ve been listening along to my previous podcast episodes, then you have: Got your basket (or box or bag) Decided on the day of the week that you’ll go through it Plus, you may have signed up for aSunday Basket Workshop. Now it’s time to take some more action and fill your basket. There are four items that I want you to put into your Sunday Basket. From now until the day that you are going to sort your basket, I want you to be filling your basket with these four items. Mail Put all of your mail into the basket. It does not need to be open and you don’t need to sort through it – just put your mail into the basket. Defer your brain power until Sunday when it comes to sorting mail. Coupons Put coupons unclipped into your Sunday Basket. Actionable to-do's Put all actionable to-do's in your basket. For example, when someone asks you to fill out paperwork, or arrange a lunch, etc. Always ask yourself the question, “...

The Sunday BasketWorkshop In my next couple of podcast episodes, I’m going to tell you exactly how to set up a Sunday Basket. The idea is that you can follow along and set-up your own basket as you listen. However, I know that we all like to learn in different ways. There are some people who learn just fine on their own, and there are other people who like to learn with others face-to-face or virtually. If you fall into the latter category, then you are going to be really pleased to learn that I offer two different types of Sunday BasketWorkshops – they are either delivered by me or by one of my wonderful Certified Sunday BasketWorkshop Organizers. The Sunday BasketWorkshop $97 Are you ready to create a lasting system for the paperwork and to-do’s that clutter your kitchen counter tops and your mind? The Sunday BasketWorkshop is the solution for you. The complete Sunday BasketSystem includes all workshop materials, the physical Sunday Basketand digital recording of a Sunday Baske...
