Productivity & Organizing Blog Carnival: Travel Planning

Many of us have been stuck at home for over a year now, and even those who have managed to get away have been quite limited. But with a glimmer of hope on the horizon, we can finally think about traveling again.

With that in mind, I’m invited my readers to share their travel planning advice in this edition of the Productivity & Organizing Blog Carnival.

The sponsor for this month is Margarita Ibbott of DownshiftingPRO, a Superstar Blogger I first met at a POC Conference over 10 years ago. Since then she has transitioned to become a lifestyle and travel blogger. I’m pretty much of a homebody, so I truly enjoy reading about and seeing pictures of the wonderful places she visits.

As you read the posts, please take a moment to share your favorites and/or this one with your network, using the hashtag #POBC.

If you’re not ready to think about travel just yet, pin this post for later!

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.

    So happy to sponsor this post. My perfect world organizing + travel. Does it get any better than that? As always some great advice from all of these great professional organizers.

    I think so many of us are off “at” the NAPO2021 virtual conference that it might take a day or two for everyone to realize this post is already up. I love how this helps us look forward, and I’m really eager to have the hope of traveling again. Margarita, thank you for sponsoring, and Janet, as always, thank you for all you do to support our industry.

    Oh, and Margarita, I am ALL ABOUT the packing cubes! I just renewed my AARP membership solely because the free gift was a set up interestingly-sized cubes for some of my odder items.

    I’m just loving the response to this post, both here and on social media. I was worried that it might upset people who still can’t travel, but it seems to have brought a ray of hope for the future, and I’m so thankful for that.
