Letting Go – Professional Organizers Blog Carnival

Letting Go – Professional Organizers Blog Carnival

A big part of getting organized is letting go – not just of items that are no longer needed, but of activities, attitudes and behaviors that prevent us from living our best possible life. Helping their clients to let go is a big part of the work that professional organizers do, so I invited my readers to share what they’ve written on this subject.

This month’s edition of the Professional Organizers Blog Carnival is sponsored by Linda Samuels, owner of Oh, So Organized! and author of The Other Side of Organized. If you’ve met Linda or read her blog, you know that she’s truly passionate about this topic! And judging by the number of submissions, so are a lot of other people.

Is something keeping you from living your best life? Let it go! Click To Tweet

Thank you to everyone who contributed!

Next month’s Blog Carnival is about Organizing on a Budget, and you may make your submission any time from now until Tuesday, July 18 at 7:00 PM EDT.

Please let me know if you’d like to suggest a topic or sponsor for a future edition!

A former professional organizer, I’m now a web designer and Certified Digital Business Consultant. I love helping others succeed by sharing the knowledge and insight I’ve gained through marketing my own business for over 15 years! When I’m away from my desk, I enjoy reading, photography, watching movies, and cooking.

  1. Wow is right! I agree with Sabrina that you’ve curated a wonderful selection of “letting go” posts. I’m so proud to be this month’s sponsor and look forward to reading all the interesting posts about one of my favorite and very relevant topics…letting go! Thank you, Janet, for the opportunity to participate, sponsor, and learn more from my organizing colleagues.

  2. I’m so pleased to have both of you – and the 30 others who contributed to this post – in my network. You are a constant source of inspiration and support. I hope you get lots of traffic to your blog as a result of your participation in the Professional Organizers Blog Carnival!

  3. What an incredible collection of contributors! I think it shows how deeply the theme resonates with all of us, and our love for you and Linda! Can’t wait to pop around and explore the wisdom:)

  4. This will be my evening entertainment–visiting with my organizer friends & learning from their wisdom and experience. Glad to be in such good company!! Thanks, Janet, for including such a useful topic and thanks, Linda, for sponsoring this edition of POBC.
