Students and Time Management - – Professional Organizers Blog Carnival

Where I live, school kids have a few weeks left of their summer vacation, but I understand that in some areas, classes have already started up again! If you’re a student, or you’re helping one or more students as a parent, teacher, or coach, I encourage you to read the many time management tips submitted by readers of Your Organizing Business.

I would like to thank Leslie Josel, owner of Order Out of Chaos and creator of the Academic Planner, for sponsoring this very timely edition of the Professional Organizers Blog Carnival.

We have a few new participants this month, whose names are marked with an asterisk (*) in the list which follows. I hope you’ll bid them a warm welcome!

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 Professional Organizers Blog Carnival on social media.

Our next Professional Organizers Blog Carnival topic is Hoarding, sponsored by Geralin Thomas, author of From Hoarding to Hope: Understanding People Who Hoard and How To Help Them. You may submit your post any time up to midnight Eastern time on Tuesday, September 8, 2015. See you there!

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.

    Great round up Janet! I can’t wait to dive in and read so many of these posts!

      So many great ideas – even for those of us who don’t currently have students in our lives!

    Great list of posts, Janet! I can’t wait to read them. =)

    You’ve done it again, Janet! You’ve inspired an awesome collection of blog posts about a very “timely” subject. And how perfect that the fabulous Leslie Josel is sponsoring this month’s #POBC with her Academic Planner. Can’t wait to read the posts! Thank you for the opportunity to participate.

      Actually, Leslie and I came up with the topic together. We thought it was a great tie-in to her wonderful product, as well as being very timely. Thank you for contributing, as always!

    Great list Janet, it is amazing how we can all say something a little different on the same subject, it just goes to prove that organizing anything is as individual as we are. Thank you again for including me.

      That’s one of the things I love about the Blog Carnival, seeing all the different ways to approach the same subject. There’s often overlap in the content, but sometimes one organizer will say the exact opposite of another, which just proves that there’s no right or wrong way to organize!

    Once again it was a fabulous treasure of information! I especially liked Amanda’s blog–from Australia!

      We don’t often get contributors from overseas, but I’m always excited when we do!
