Decluttering Resources - Productivity & Organizing Blog Carnival

Now that spring is here, millions of people will begin spring cleaning and organizing. Some will hire a professional organizer, but others will want to at least try to handle it on their own. To help them get started, I asked my readers to share their favorite decluttering resources for this month’s Productivity & Organizing Blog Carnival.

Our sponsor for this edition is Hazel Thornton of Organized for Life and Beyond, who is a Megastar Blogger, having contributed to more than 50 editions of the Productivity & Organizing Blog Carnival. You must check out Hazel’s exciting new decluttering resource, Go With the Flow! The Clutter Flow Chart Workbook.

Whether you’re overwhelmed by your own clutter or an organizing pro looking to expand your own resource list, you’re sure to find something here you can use. Check out all the great submissions, and be sure to show the bloggers your appreciation by leaving comments and sharing their blog posts (or this one) with your network, using the hashtag #POBC in your social media posts.

A former professional organizer, I now eliminate stress for my clients by hosting, monitoring, and maintaining their WordPress sites so they don’t have to worry about security, downtime or performance issues. When I’m away from my desk, I enjoy reading, photography, watching movies, and cooking.

    What a wonderful collection, with Hazel’s new clutter decision tree at the top! I love these and look forward to diving in and learning more. Thank you for including me in the post.

    This is wonderful! Thanks for including me in your post! This topic makes we want to declutter right now!

      I really like that you focused on a specific type of decluttering. I’m not parting with my yearbooks, but it’s fascinating to read about all the options. It would never have occurred to me that anyone else might be interested in having them.

    This is such a great idea for a blog carnival. We all need resources for decluttering! Thanks to Hazel for sponsoring. I’ve read many of these already, but will check out the ones that are new to me. I agree about Sabrina’s specific post on yearbooks. Giving me an idea for a future GO Month series!

    This is a stellar collection of posts, and while I’d read many of them previously, some are new and equally “resourceful” for decluttering. What a great fit for Hazel’s sponsorship. Janet, thank you for always supporting our profession and making sure great information gets to the people who need it.

    • Avatar Janet Barclay on March 16, 2023 at 2:19 pm

      It’s my pleasure, Julie! Of all the random ideas I’ve had over the past 20+ years, this one actually took off. 🙂

  6. Hazel Thornton Hazel Thornton on March 19, 2023 at 2:30 pm

    OK, I’ve read everyone’s wonderful contributions (most of which I had not seen before), now to share everywhere! I’ve also read all the comments, which are almost always full of more tips and insights! Thanks, as always, to Janet, and to all of you who are saying kind things about my new “Go With the Flow!” workbook!

    • Avatar Janet Barclay on March 20, 2023 at 11:06 am

      Hazel, I’m so grateful to have you as a sponsor, a contributor, a client, and a friend! Thank YOU for all you do.
