You are in for a treat today! Joining me today is Janet Taylor, founder of Totally Organized, a company she started back in 1994 after leaving her corporate job. Since then, Janet has gone on to help hundreds of clients declutter and get organized, earning her the title “Clutter Free Queen” when she appeared on the Rachael Ray Show! Janet is also the host of the “Got Clutter! Get Organized! podcast.
I invited Janet to come on TOL to talk about a topic that has a huge impact on our habits and behaviors, but one that is often overlooked–Organizing Tips that You Learned from Your Mom.
We often underestimate the things that we deem as “normal” and it isn’t until we grow up and live with other people that we realize not everyone does things the way we do.
During our conversation we talked about the countless things that Janet’s mom, Ida taught her such as:
- Labeling freezer food with dates
- Creating a grocery list the follows the layout of the store
- Purging before purchasing
- When to add syrup to the grocery list
In the second half of the show we turned to YOU, our listeners and followers who shared your own tips (both good and bad!) that you learned from your mom (or other family members!)
If you enjoyed this episode, please do us a favor and share it with your friends and family. It’s a great way to start a conversation with your own family about organizing habits.
