Set your TiVos!

One of Unclutterer’s long-time readers and someone I have been known to bounce ideas off once in a while, Geralin Thomas, will appear on two upcoming episodes of Time Makeover on the Fine Living TV Network.

Time Makeover is a new show that helps viewers find more time in their lives. “Whether it’s looking for an extra hour every day or freeing up your weekends, it’s all about managing time.”

In the episodes she appears, Geralin Thomas, a professional organizer based out of Cary, North Carolina, and owner of Metropolitan Organizing, will help the Shedrick and Damare families find ways to use their time more efficiently. Check out the episodes on Saturday, December 1 at 8:00 p.m. and on Saturday, December 8 at 8:00 p.m.

Here are some of the tips she provides on the shows:

    This evangelical Unclutterer fan (thanks to Geralin) can also be seen on Time Makeover (3 episodes…the first one to air this weekend — Fri, November 16 at 9pm, Saturday, November 17 at 1am and Sunday, November 18 at 8pm). I think any busy family will find tidbits of wisdom in this Fine Living show!

    @ Kim,

    I’m sorry you don’t have that channel but let me know if there are any areas of Time Management or Getting Organized in particular that are um, *challenging* for you.

    Most of the time my ideas and suggestions come from someone working their way through a problem. (Filing, opening junk mail, over committing, using the wrong calendar, etc.)

    We can brainstorm together!

    I watched “Time Makeover” last night with Geralin Thomas and thoroughly enjoyed it. I think it is a great concept for a TV show since everyone seems pushed for time these days. I think the idea of making ourselves aware of just where we are spending our time was especially helpful. I’d love to see a segment on Time Management as it relates to entertaining. I think so many of us want to entertain but just don’t think we have the time. Great show and am looking forward to the next one.

    I watched Geralin Thomas on “Time Makeover” Friday, December 1st and really enjoyed it.

    This type of show is exactly what busy families need to make them aware of exactly how they are spending thier time and then give them a way to manage it more effedtively. It was a very good show and I am looking forward to more.

    Many Thanks!

    A number of you sent friendly, supportive emails; I’d like to thank all who watched, posted or sent good thoughts my way. I appreciate the encouragement and kind comments.

    The families I worked with are awesome and a good time was had by all.

    Hey, we watched this show over the holidays (we are a family of procrastinators who run late for everything.) We could relate to everything–the kids & activities, the laundry, the junk mail, voice mails.

    We liked your calendar tips and laundry-in-the-bag trick. We all went shopping the day after Christmas and bought mesh laundry bags and it does work!

    Good tips. Nice show.

    Hi Mary,

    Thanks for commenting and watching Time Makeover.

    Two of the most common problems I see when organizing for families are junk mail and laundry-overload (pun intended!)

    Glad to hear that you are giving the laundry bags a try. The family featured on the show told me that it is the single biggest time saving tip of all. Glad that was helpful for you too.

    Mary, I’m curious, do you know why you, “run late for everything?” Would you consider keeping a journal for two weeks and note why you are late? The reasons might be numerous: kids, traffic, overslept, etc. See if there are any patterns.

    Again, many thanks for your kind comments.
