Episode 234 – 10 organisational things professional organisers never buy

It's no secret that Lesley and I have pet hates when it comes to organisational things for your home that pretend to be revolutionary. In today's podcast we're going to chat through the 10 things that we would never buy.

  1. Ingrid and Lesley, I enjoy all your episodes and enjoyed this one as well. Nonetheless, I love my card box (your #3) and I understand that you as PO would not recommend it for someone. However, as you indicated that it does work for some. So I am that someone.

    The key to it working for me is:
    1. I do not buy cards to go into it (with exception of some blank cards and a set of thank you cards).
    2. It holds the extra cards from a box of Christmas cards to be used the next year. It also holds cards I didn't use. For example, I might buy 2 sympathy cards and my husband and I will pick the most appropriate and I put the extra in the box.
    3. All cards have to fit or they are given away if in good condition to Goodwill.
    4. I go through the box every January and remove cards that do not resonate with me any longer, are bent, or haven't used (like the left-over Christmas cards) in a year or so.
    5. I also keep the wintery return address labels in it.

    Here is a link to my box (hope link works). https://photos.app.goo.gl/F9tmH2oZTvaLB6Mw7

    Thank you for doing these episodes.

    1. Hi Marion,

      Lovely to hear from you and I'm delighted to hear your card box is working for you.

      You have a good system in place for buying new cards, going through your box once a year and disposing or donating cards that no longer resonate.

      This is exactly why your box is working for you. Thank you for sharing your picture. It's lovely.

      Ingrid
