Faithful Organizers Promote America Recycles Day

America Recycles Day is November 15th.  As Christian organizers, Faithful Organizers' members strive to improve the quality of life in homes, offices and the environment.  Recycling is a key component in the process of de-cluttering, sorting and organizing.  Through the sorting process, items are set aside to be redistributed for recycling.  Many times, people are tempted to simply toss the outdated electronics, the old eyeglasses, even books in the trash because they don't know what to do with them.  There are resources available that will recycle even reuse these items.  Stores and organizations also offer donation receipts. If you need suggestions, click here to find an organizer to help you through the process.

Here's a few places to recycle: Staples, Recycling locator, Styrofoam, what can be recycled

If you know of a store, organization, business, or group that recycles or if you have ideas on how to reuse or repurpose items, share them on our Facebook page.

FAITHFUL ORGANIZERS CELEBRATE THEIR 25TH ANNIVERSARY

 

You may have noticed that things look a little bit different on our website.  We are celebrating 25 years as a group as shown on our logo. You can read more about Our Story here. 

 We have made great strides in our organization in recent years.  It 2014, we updated our logo to reflect our faith in our Savior. That same year we updated and expanded our website so visitors to our website could do their own search for members and speakers.  Also, potential members can apply online.

 We have expanded our board of directors to include marketing and treasurer directors.  With the availability of technology, Faithful Organizers now has a Facebook page where daily tips, inspirations and humor are posted.  Our “likes” grow every month.

We have expanded our memberships services to include monthly virtual meetings, a private Facebook page for members only, a monthly newsletter and, as always, a monthly devotional.

March Toward Simplicity

 

FAITHFUL ORGANIZERS TO LAUNCH IT’S 2nd ANNUAL MARCH TOWARD SIMPLICITY CHALLENGE

Faithful Organizers, an international group of Christian Professional Organizers, is again promoting our organizing challenge to the public. March Toward Simplicity will run the entire month of March except for Sundays.  Each day, participants will be challenged to complete a small organizing task to help simplify their lives. Members of the organization are encouraging their clients and affiliates to participate in the challenge as way to motivate them to address their clutter in small chunks and to maintain the systems they have in place.

Getting organized ranks 4th in New Year’s resolutions.  This challenge will motivate participants to do a quick, daily project to see how simple it is to accomplish even the smallest of tasks. We are addressing several different aspects of organization including time management, productivity and household clutter.   It is our hope that the feeling of success will continue beyond the challenge to where organizing becomes a daily activity.  By replacing bad habits with good habits, participants who struggle with organization or who lack organizational skills will be stimulated to continue with their progress.

I addition to the daily, focused tasks, a blog will be posted on the Faithful Organizers Facebook page each day, except Sundays.  These blogs are written by members and include motivational information and tips to assist participants with their tasks.

The calendar delineating the different challenges will be accessible through a link on the Faithful Organizers website: www.faithfulorganizers.com beginning March 1st.  They can also be found on their Facebook page: Facebook.com/Faithful Organizers.
