Monica Leed: Simply Spaced

Monica Leed of Simply Spaced, a pro organizer and author of the new book, also called Simply Spaced, said to me that organization is not a once and done kind of thing. 

And I think I've been kind of assuming it was.  In other words, I've been telling myself that if I set up the Right system, with the Right tools and the Right bins, file folders and compartmentalized drawer inserts, I'll never have to organize or declutter anything ever again.  And if I do, that means the system I've set up must be wrong.

But Monica reminded me that there's this thing called Life that happens.  Unexpected paperwork, gifts we may or may not want, tools for  project we didn't plan on having to do... and so we didn't know we needed to create a space for them.  So of course we're going to have to revisit our organizational systems.  And that's ok. 

Permission given to go back to the drawing board and re-do stuff.   In the rest of the episode we cover things such as how a good decluttering is growth for the soul, how getting organized is empowering, how to agree with your spouse or partner on what "neat and tidy" actually means, and why style is critical to staying organized.
