Finally! An Organizing Magazine!!

Great news! A friend of mine informed me that there is now an organizing magazine called Organize magazine! How cool is that?! Not too long ago I had a conversation with my husband about the fact that there were no magazines dedicated to organizing (which I was really craving). We even dreamed of being the ones to change that fact...I guess I missed that boat--Oh well, maybe I can get published in this one someday! :) It seems like the organizing industry has really gained momentum even in the short time I've been involved. I can't wait to check it out!

P.S. I just looked at the website and it's $20 per year to subscribe. NAPO members pay $15 for a year. Bonus!

What a great thing! Thanks for sharing the news! I need to order it before this industry grows anymore and the magazine gets too expensive. (Real Simple mag. is getting so expensive now... bummer huh? I'm dropping it)

How much is Real Simple now? I decided not to renew my subscription either--I've found I can't keep up with more than one or two magazines anyway (I had 3 last year which was more of a burden than a pleasure). I do love Real Simple but I can't wait to try out the Organize magazine. I think that may be the only subscription I need!

Ha, true! Real Simple is close to 25 bucks now. Hey can you order this mag. for friend at your $15 rate? if so sign me up baby!!

Wow, that is a lot. Hmmm...a friends and family rate...I'll look into that.

Client Feedback

I work out of a home office without any administrative support. I worked with Melissa to organize both my personal and professional effects as I prepared to relocate. I wish I had done it years ago. While organizing my office and paperwork Melissa identified my natural tendencies and created an organizational structure that was easy for me to maintain. When I began looking for a personal organizer, I mostly wanted someone else to come in and take care of the mess I had allowed to build up over the years. Working with an “uninterested” party during the purging process helped me lighten my load considerably. During the process Melissa provided me with simple intuitive skills that have not only allowed me to maintain my newly found order but help friends and family organize as well. I can honestly say hiring Melissa is one of the best things I have ever done for myself. Kelsi Reeves
