Organizing Checklists – Productivity & Organizing Blog Carnival

At the start of any new year, nearly everyone is focused on getting organized, being more productive, or working towards some other lofty goal.

Since a good checklist can be the key to getting started and ultimately achieving success, I invited my readers to contribute a blog post about Organizing Checklists to the first Productivity & Organizing Blog Carnival of 2021. As usual, they did not disappoint. This month’s lineup includes checklists for just about any area of your personal or work life!

This edition of the PO Blog Carnival is sponsored by my long-time client, Janet Schiesl of Basic Organization. Janet is a Productivity & Organizing Blog Carnival Star Blogger and has previously supported Your Organizing Business with a guest post about expanding your business.

I’m excited to have been involved in the launch of Janet’s innovative Home Organizing Maintenance Exercise subscription service. I encourage you to check it out at My Basic HOME if you haven’t already!

As you read the posts listed below, please connect with the bloggers on social media, leave comments, and share your favorite posts with your own network. Please use the hashtag #POBC in your social media posts.

Thanks to everyone for sharing your checklists and tips, and special thanks to My Basic HOME  for sponsoring.

I’m now accepting submissions for the next Productivity & Organizing Blog Carnival, when our topic will be Organizing Shared Spaces. Posts must be submitted by 12:00 midnight EST on Tuesday, February 16th to be included.

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.

    Aw, thanks, Julie! When I started this Blog Carnivals were a big thing, but this is the only one I’m aware of that’s still going strong. I am so thankful for you and all the others who’ve helped make it what it is.
