Organizing the Living Room - Professional Organizers Blog Carnival

For many, the living room is a hub of activity. For others, it’s a special place to receive guests. Often it serves both purposes, which makes keeping the living room organized not just important, but challenging.

This month, I’ve asked professional organizers to share their advice on organizing the living room. I invite you to read their posts to learn how to keep this vital room both functional and attractive.

As you read the various posts, take a moment to leave some comments and to share your favorites with your network. Please use the hashtag #POBC when you talk about the Professional Organizers Blog Carnival on social media.

Thank you to everyone who contributed to this month’s Professional Organizers Blog Carnival!

Our topic for next month is Getting Organized after a Disaster, and you may make your submission any time from now until Tuesday, June 19 at 7:00 PM EDTPlease let me know if you’d like to suggest a topic or sponsor for a future edition.

I recommend...

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.

    I can’t wait to read and visit all of these posts. The living room is such an important part of a home. When it is not organized, it can truly impact the ability to relax and enjoy family members each day.

      You’re so right! How can you relax when you’re surrounded by clutter?
