You would think it would be easy for me to criticize someone else organizing an office (especially if they’re not a pro), but when bestselling author Gretchen Rubin organized her sister Elizabeth's office and recorded the process for her podcast, so many moments made me smile.  Not a catty complaint in sight.  For her popular podcast, Rubin and her sister are mic’d as they organize Elizabeth's home office that is in dire need of help.

We get to hear how they processed may of the items that landed in the office that had no business being there.  I’d like Elizabeth to know that she’s not the only one with Christmas supplies in her office - in March. It’s not unlike being a fly on the wall of any of my consultations.

Being a writer, Rubin extrapolates a list of lessons learned in her podcast notes.  As a revelation was made or “try this at home” activity arose, she noted it in a neat list of takeaways on how to clear clutter with ease.
