Creating systems that cater to the organizing styles of your clients is a huge part of your role as a professional organizer. But when you need to develop a system that will work for a couple, a family, or a business team, that’s when things get really interesting!

For this month’s Productivity & Organizing Blog Carnival, I invited my readers to share their blog posts about Organizing Shared Spaces. You’re sure to find something here to help with that next tricky situation – maybe even in your own home or workplace.

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 Productivity & Organizing Blog Carnival on social media.

    I’ve been enjoying stopping by these posts and seeing everyone’s tips for shared spaces. Compromise is a word I am seeing a lot. Space, like so many things, needs to be negotiated. I also love the tone of respecting one another, and of getting to have a bit of space that is all your own, to keep exactly as you like it!

    What a great round-up of posts! It’s such a relevant topic as spaces are being shared more than ever and for multiple purposes. I thought I submitted a post for this group, but something must have gone wrong on my end. You suggested I share the link in the comments, so here it is:

    Looking forward to reading the other posts.

    I’m working my way through these superior posts. The hardest part of organizing is trying to blend two or more different organizing styles in one household. These posts will give people great guidance in accomplishing that.

      When I did organizing consultations, the person who contacted me was often concerned about other peoples’ clutter – at home, in an office, or a classroom. When it was clear that the “other people” weren’t concerned about it at all, I knew I would never be invited back.
