The Sunday Basket System If you are brand new to my site, allow me to introduce myself. I’m Lisa Woodruff, a professional organizer and productivity expert. I have another podcast called Organize 365, and it’s been going strong for almost six years!
This podcast is only 1 episode long. The Sunday Basket® Podcast is an actionable podcast. I hope to inspire you to take action in order to get your household paperwork organized.
Where The Sunday Basket® Idea Came From Going back 18 years ago, when my kids were 6months and 2 years old, I was running a couple side businesses that equated to full-time jobs. I was a wife, mom, caretaker, homemaker, cook, laundress… sound familiar?
I had a lot of paper.
Plus, I had an addiction to these beautiful baskets made in Ohio called "Longaberger." You can already see where this is going!
One particular evening, I decided to tackle the 12-inch pile of paper on my kitchen counter. The paper stack was disorganized and there were a lot of actions for us to take within that stack of paper – including bills to pay, adoption paperwork, invoices to send out, orders to place, etc.
The first action that I took was to sort the paperwork into piles.
I had 40 different actionable kinds of piles.
I found I’d been paying bills late simply because I didn’t know where they were.
Being disorganized can be demoralizing and you start to question yourself. It can feel like your life is out of control. This is how I felt with my 40 piles of paper. I was overwhelmed, but I knew what I needed to do.
I created a plan to tackle each pile of paperwork one at a time.
Well, that was 15 years ago and that’s when I consider the Sunday Basket® System to have been created.
During the 15 past years of having a Sunday Basket®, I’ve gone from having just a few bits of paper in it, to having an overwhelming pile of paper. It ebbs and flows, but I always have one.
In essence, it was a basket that I sorted through on a Sunday. Sunday has always been the day of the week for me when I manage to get some time to myself and I have the most energy.
