Organize 365® empowers individuals to learn the functional skills of home and paper organization so that they have time to pursue their passions and share their innate talents with the world.
Organize 365® traces its roots back to 2012 when CEO Lisa Woodruff found herself overwhelmed with the chaos of working a 60+ hour work week. Her house was a wreck, her kid's needs weren't being met, bills were mounting, and her teaching job wasn’t fulfilling her life’s purpose any longer. Something had to give, and she quit her day job. Read Lisa’s full story here and dive into her personal memoir Organization is a Learnable Skill.
She focused all 365 days of 2012 to starting Organize 365® and taking back control of her life and home. By the end of 2012, she had transformed her home and developed practical, functional organizational systems that worked and responded to the demands of a working household. Those systems became the pillars of the Organize 365® brand we use today: The Sunday Basket®, The 100 Day Home Organization Program, The Friday Workbox, the Household Binder system, and the Certification Programs. In less than a decade, Lisa has grown Organize 365® from a one-woman blog and organizing business into a research-backed corporation that leads organizational trends worldwide.
At Organize 365®, we believe that if organization was just about buying organizational products, there would be a lot more organized households! Organization is a journey. It’s a way of thinking, and it can be learned.
So many times, we see people spend large amounts of money on beautiful collections of containers and bins they are sure will be the “magic ticket” they finally need to get their homes the way they want it (or, more often, the way they saw it on Pinterest). But soon, they are missing papers. They are forgetting appointments. They have stacks of miscellaneous items all over their homes. Eventually, they are back on Pinterest looking for the next product that will finally work.
Our passion lies not with organization products, but with organization tools, resources, and most importantly, education. Organizing your home and life is a process and a routine. Those fancy containers--while beautiful--fail us because they don’t change us.
It isn’t as simple as it sounds. But it works. We start with The Sunday Basket® ensuring that all of your household paper has a home and gets dealt with every single week. This routine creates a home base for everything that happens within your home and family and enables you to locate papers you need when you need them. Once you learn the routine, you’ll spend less time looking for papers and more time doing the things you were uniquely created to do.
Over the years, Lisa has honed the systems she used in her own organizational journey and she has started sharing them with her audience. We get questions all the time: What size basket do you use? Where do you find slash pockets? What ARE slash pockets? What size binder should I get? It only made sense to start producing our own--so we did!
We are all about function here at Organize 365®, but being pretty doesn’t hurt. We now offer several lines of beautiful, functional products with the end goal in mind: to help busy individuals get their homes organized so that they have time to pursue their passions and can live out their unique purpose.
Welcome! We are so glad you’re here.
