So Money - Episode 600

Lisa Woodruff

Professional Organizer

Organization is not a destination but a journey. Our guest today says you are never going to be “completely organized” … and that’s ok! She is Lisa Woodruff, founder of Organize 365 and author of the book The Mindset of Organization: Take Back Your House One Phase at a Time

She’s become a professional organizer through her own life’s challenges.  At age 40, she found herself totally unorganized, unproductive and unplanned, and her family life was suffering. She decided to quit her job and create a 40-day plan to get her home in better shape and began blogging about it. It was then she realized her calling to be a professional organizer. Lisa has helped thousands of people find sanity in their lives.

We talk about why more folders, baskets and bins  – no matter how beautiful and compact – is NOT going to solve your lack of organization (sorry, Container Store).

Also, many of Lisa‘s clients are baby boomers in need of downsizing. Why is it so hard for this generation to let go of their stuff?
