Organized Shopping – Productivity & Organizing Blog Carnival

Whether you’re a material girl who lives to go to the Mall or a minimalist who buys only what you need when you need it, shopping has changed in more ways than we could have ever imagined just a few months ago.

Popping out to pick up a few things is no longer practical, due to line-ups, stock shortages, recommendations to minimize outings to the essential, and even store closures. Instead, we’re shopping online, having items delivered or held for curbside pickup, or heading out to the store with lengthy lists in hand. Being an organized shopper is more important than ever before, and these skills will always be valuable, even if and when things go back to the way they used to be.

For this month’s edition of the Productivity & Organizing Blog Carnival, I invited my readers to share their blog posts about Organized Shopping. Read on for tips about grocery shopping, holiday shopping, shopping for organizing products, and even changing your spending habits!

Please connect with the bloggers on social media, leave comments, and share your favorite posts with your network, using the hashtag #POBC.

Thank you to everyone who contributed this month! If you didn’t make it into this Blog Carnival, feel free to post your own words of wisdom or a link to one of your posts in the Comments section.

Next month’s edition will be all about Learning at Home, and you’re welcome to make your submission any time from now until 7 PM EDT on Tuesday, August 18th.

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.
