Easy listening: Are products the solution to getting organized?

Want to listen to a little decluttering inspiration? Need a break from your regular Saturday morning routine?

If you’re looking for a motivating diversion, check out Erin being interviewed yesterday on The O Myth, a weekly online radio show and podcast that explores the myths and misconceptions about being organized. On their show, Portland-based professional organizers Krista Colvin and Brandie Kajino debunk organizing stereotypes, and this week they specifically ask Erin if products are the solution to getting organized.

You also might want to check out the upcoming O Myth episode scheduled for November 14, which will feature organizing superstar Peter Walsh.

Note: The hard boiled egg method I discuss in the interview is from Alton Brown’s cookbook I’m Just Here for the Food.

Thank you, too, to Krista and Brandie for being the hosts of such a fun and fabulous podcast on organizing.

    I can’t seem to find the podcast – I’d like to listen to this, but can’t sit by my computer doing that, so I’d like to subscribe. Sorry if I’m just being dense, but can you point me to the right place?

    @Erica — If you click on the image or on the linked words “The O Myth” it should take you right to the podcast and it should immediately start playing.

    The solution to organizing is in re-using boxes. Packaging is a science of design and engineering genius. As soon as we bring home a product in a box or a big bag (such as TP), we cut off the tops and make organizing bins for drawers, for the garage, for the pantry. Bins and bags for returning things to neighbors and family. Then when they’re kinda shot we let our kids at them and split them down the sides for coloring or fort building. Awesome.

    I’m at a computer without speakers, so…what’s the “hard boiled egg method”?

    I’m a huge Alton fan, but I’m drawing a blank here.
