Feels like Deja Vu all over again?
I look around and realize that another year has gone by without much progress toward getting the attic cleaned out or my papers shredded or my winter clothes sorted out. (big sigh…)
But this is a brand new decade — an opportunity for both of us to make some major strides toward decluttering and slimming down our complicated lives.
Following my ADDitude webinar on ADHD Organizing (click this link to see the entire webinar replay) I decided to create this four-week program to help you get a jump start on organizing your life — whatever that means to you.
Decluttering and organizing are truly ADHD strategies for calm, focus and improved memory (when there is less to think about, we can remember more easily).
Four weeks with live classes, daily check-ins and ADDiva support
Everyone’s clutter challenges are different but there are some common themes: can’t part with it, don’t know where to put it, too good to throw away and (the dreaded) overwhelm.
That’s the real issue, right? We all get started with vim and vigor but fall victim to a sudden, sinking feeling that we are in over our heads. So we stop. Or procrastinate. Or give up. Until next time. This is next time!
Small group, accountability, support, privacy
It can be embarrassing to admit we have failed at something as supposedly “simple” as decluttering or organizing. It’s not so simple. You haven’t failed. And there is nothing to be embarrassed about…at least in our group!
We are all of the ADHD variety so we understand, sympathize, encourage and offer our best support as all of us stumble through the clutter forest together.
Can we miraculously clean out an entire office or house or attic or garage or other large messy space in four weeks? There are no miracles. There is only slow, steady progress…something foreign to the ADDiva world. But it can happen, given enough “atta girl” acknowlegment.
You can do this.
Correction: we can do this together.
Join me and a bunch of other ADDivas who really do understand your frustration and will celebrate your success!

I started early…
Yep, that’s me as a baby, pulling out the folded clothes from the drawers. But over the years, I’ve had my share of decluttered days in the sun. And my re-cluttered days of regret. Overall, I have managed to maintain some semblance of order in my office and home. I have some ADHD-friendly ideas that might help.
Should you join?
You don’t have to have a massive mess to join the Get Organized 2020 group. A small mess will do. But you need to be ready to take responsibility for creating and altering it. And willingness to have a new perspective on it; a renewed sense of hope and optimism that can carry through the year.
What will happen?
Each Thursday we will get together via Zoom (demo pix only above) where I will offer some ADDiva-friendly organizing ideas. We’ll share our successes and sometimes our learning curves (a.k.a. challenges). Then we’ll stay connected daily via a simple online interface.
My professional organizer charges me $85 an hour, so $99 for four weeks of training and support is a super bargain. But the real question is: how much is that clutter costing you right now? Stress, time, frustration — they all have a cost to your life.
I need more details.
Education sessions are Thursdays, 12:00 – 1:00 pm Eastern time.
We will meet by Zoom and/or phone.
Organizing “Blitzes” weekly: Sundays from 4:30 – 6:30 pm EDT; Tuesdays 6:00 – 8:00 pm EDT and Thursdays 9:30 – 11:30 am EDT – all on Zoom, with live checkins and encouragement!
There will also be an online connection (24/7) and check in (post photos, post goals and accomplishments, get encouragement, etc.)
All education sessions will be recorded but only available to other members.
The blitzes are not recorded to protect privacy and encourage candid sharing.
Dates for this 2020 Session:
July 2 – July 30, 2020
