  • We have very different backgrounds and hobbies, but we’re both organized

Why did we start the podcast?

  • People kept asking how we do it
  • Visitors impressed or ask questions when they come over
  • Get request to teach classes on organization
  • Reach a broader audience with some of our ideas

Goal for podcast

  • Share what we know
  • It’s not just moms that need to be involved, but dads too. You cannot be successful as a couple or a family unless both parents are involved. You can have different focus’ but you are a team
  • Podcast Angle: to point out that all members of family contribute to being organized, not just the mom

Why do we think organization is important?

  • Saves time
  • Helps reduce tension and promote harmony
  • Provides for a place where people can be more creative and productive

All episodes will be in one of four categories

  • Personal organization
  • Kids organization
  • Home organization
  • Finance organization

Frequency: Once a week

Length: We’re shooting for about 20 minute long podcasts

The quote “Organization saves time” came from the movie “The Most Wonderful Time of the Year”. The name of the book about tidying up is “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing”
