I’m very excited to bring you the latest edition of the Professional Organizers Blog Carnival! This month’s theme of Organizing for Your Legacy. In case you’re wondering exactly what that means, here’s a definition supplied by our sponsor, Hazel Thornton.
A legacy is anything left behind when you die. It can be a gift of money or property left to someone in a will. It can be a body of wisdom captured in a published book, or the ongoing good deeds of a non-profit organization that you founded. It could be the wonderful warm memories of friendship and family that never die.
A legacy can also be the consequences of neglect. It could be a house full of clutter that no one knows what to do with. Or the lack of a will and a designated executor, leading to confusion and more money and time being spent on your estate than it is worth.
Hazel is quite a regular around here! She’s not only a Professional Organizers Blog Carnival Superstar Blogger; she’s written several guest posts for Your Organizing Business and has sponsored two previous editions of the Professional Organizers Blog Carnival. She’s also the creator of the Clutter Flow Charts, including the Keepsake Clutter Flow Chart shown above.
Be sure to bookmark or pin this post, because you won’t want to miss any of my readers’ submissions! We’ve got tips for handling everything from fun stuff like photos and memorabilia to serious matters like making your final wishes known to your loved ones. There are even reviews of the latest hot organizing book, The Gentle Art of Swedish Death Cleaning: How to Free Yourself and Your Family from a Lifetime of Clutter by Margareta Magnusson.
Please 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.
