Happy National Organising Week (NOW)!

NOW (pun or rather acronym intended) is the perfect time to reconsider how you use your space, time and stuff.

One of our favourite ways to help families get and stay organised are our action stations. A while ago I stumbled on the blog post of a compatriot organiser Lisa of Organized 365 in the USA, it was all about The Sunday Basket Straight away I related to the concepts Lisa was describing, finding it similar to our family filing action stations. It got me thinking about the way we have described our action stations and how to use them to you in the past.  

Winter has set in and with it many of us are spending the night curled up in front of the TV.  Instead of watching the same boring old shows, why don’t you have a good old fashioned 'slide' night?

Do you love a good catch up with old friends? Can you remember the last time you took a stroll down memory lane? Do you have hundreds of old slides or prints taking up valuable storage space generating inches of dust? We can help you prepare everything you need to enjoy a 'slide' night the modern way and we have some fun theme ideas to inspire you.

For those of you that visited The Office Space - Officeworks Blog to read our input on how to 'Unclutter and organised your workspace' you would be familiar with our 'organise > utilise > enjoy' theory. Tagline - organise utilise enjoy___ After last weeks Time Trial video we wanted to remind you of the benefits of organising your photos by applying the same 'organise > utilise > enjoy' theory to this post about photo organising.

Remember waaaay back in May we promised we would do a post covering off some of our most FAQ about how to prepare for a digital organising project?  Well a bunch of stuff happened i.e. LIFE and I was delayed in writing it, sorry team. Finally as promised here it is using a specific scenario unique to one of our fantastic clients. Readers - meet Pete,  Pete is a husband and father who plays in a band and runs 3 businesses.  Anyone in the Sutherland Shire looking for a GREAT personal trainer you should do yourself a favour and check out 100 Candles Training Pete had images on 2 iPhones, 5 memory cards and 1 PC that he wanted organised into a useable system.  Read on to see a short video interview I did with Pete BEFORE we started organising.
