Win a Copy of Unstuff Your Life! An Interview With Andrew Mellen, Professional Organizer!

Today I interviewed Andrew Mellen, professional organizer.

I met him at BlogHer13' through Jason Mayo, who writes at Outnumbered.

Andrew and I met at Four and Twenty Blackbirds, one of the best pie places in the universe. Our goals were to do the interview about organization and then eat as much pie as humanly possible. We accomplished both goals.

Andrew talked about his organizational concept, the Organizational Triangle:
1. One home for everything - Everything in your house has a place it belongs.
2. Like with like - All cosmetics go in one box
3. Something in, something out - Do not bring something into your home unless you know what it is replacing and where it will live.

  6. I just caught Andrew on TV and he had such great organizing tips. I need help with my apartment and organizing and hope I can win Andrew's book.

  7. Ok, so...I don't know what happened but I used to be the least cluttered person ever. I was a freak about throwing stuff away, Goodwilling, etc. I still do Goodwill runs every couple months, but I feel like my stuff is starting to consume me. After my second child was born, and I was trying to survive my senior year of college, something happened: I gave up on my house. Stuff accumulated, things no longer had a "home" and ended up all over the place. I need help to get back on track!
