Welcome to the latest edition of the Professional Organizers Blog Carnival! Reading this month’s submissions gave me a strong urge to pull out my own treasure box and enjoy a stroll down memory lane, and I just can’t seem to get Jim Croce’s Photographs and Memories out of my head.

Please read all the great submissions we received this month, which are listed below. You’re sure to find some inspiration for helping your clients organize their precious keepsakes, and maybe even your own!

We’re now accepting submissions for next month’s Professional Organizers Blog Carnival, when our topic will be The Fun Side of Organizing. That’s a pretty broad topic, so let’s see what you can do with it! The deadline is Monday, July 12.

In the meantime, please answer this question: When it comes to your own personal mementos, is it difficult for you to follow the advice that you give to your clients?

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.
