More Resources for the Chronically Disorganized

  • Ready for more resources to get you organized and out from under?
  • Last time, I steered you toward four fun-loving, know-where-you’re-coming-from-‘cause-we’ve-been-there organizers.
  • Today I want to introduce you to a few more serious types.

Julie Morgenstern, author of Time Management From the Inside Out and Organizing from the Inside Out has been called a house whisperer. (Lisa Kogan, O, The Oprah Magazine).
Ms. Morgenstern created Task Masters in 1989. She calls it a full service organizing business for homes, offices, and everything in between. She believes that most people fail in their attempts to get organized because they focus on the solution instead of the problem. Understanding the psychological quirks, hidden dissuaders, and common mistakes we all make will help us achieve our goal of becoming organized and staying that way. She promises to help you identify, examine and confront the reasons you are chronically disorganized. juliemorgenstern

Peter Walsh is a household name. His hit television series Clean Sweep entertains, enthralls and dismays us. He is the author of several organizing how to books, including It’s All Too Much. Peter holds a master’s degree in educational psychology. He is a regular guest on The Oprah  Winfrey Show and has a weekly national radio program, The Peter Walsh Show. Mr. Walsh’s philosophy is simple. We all have too much stuff! His solution? Get rid of it, don’t buy anything you don’t truly need, and live your life instead of merely being a caretaker for stuff. peterwalshdesign

Susan C. Pinsky wrote Organizing Solutions for People with Attention Deficit Disorder. After discovering that people without ADD were using the methods in her book, she wrote The Fast and Furious 5 Step Organizing Solution. She is a professional organizer and author. She teaches the 5 step method to organizing your home and office. Step 1: Plan. Step 2: Weed and Sort, Step 3: Remove, Step 4: Name to Create Boundaries, and Step 5: Containerize. Ms. Pinsky believes perfectionism gets in the way of efficiency. Also, less is more. organizationallyours

While these professional organizers take a more serious, no holds barred approach to organizing, they will add to your arsenal against the CHAOS* in your life.
