OVERWHELMED BY YOUR PAPER?
Escape from your daily responsibilities and immerse yourself in starting and COMPLETING your paper organization project in one weekend!
Organize 365's Paper Organizing Retreat will give you space and time to focus on getting your paper project organized in one fell swoop.
The paper organizing room will be open “around the clock” from 9am Saturday – 4pm on Sunday.
Lunch and dinner on Saturday are included with the cost of your ticket as well as breakfast, lunch, and a snack on Sunday. There are refrigerators in the rooms if you would like to purchase any of your own snacks or groceries before you arrive. And, of course, our Keurig bar is open all day every day!
On site professional organizers will help you troubleshoot which papers to save and will answer any questions that you have as you organize.
The complete line of Organize 365 products will be available to have preordered and ready at your spot or bought on demand as you power through your projects. (Please note that physical Organize 365 products are NOT included in the price of your registration.)
We will have everything you need to trash, recycle or shred what you don't need.
On Sunday afternoon, we will have the Sunday Basket Club LIVE for 90 minutes right there at our Paper Organizing Retreat so you can go home with your Sunday Basket ready to go for the next week!
Load your car FULL of your paper piles and leave with completed workboxes and binders!
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How much space will I have to get organized?
Each person will have their very own 6' table to spread out on. This will give you plenty of space to sort through your papers. We will provide trash bags and large shredding receptacles for all of your paper that you do not plan to keep.
I am overwhelmed and have no idea where to start. What do I do?
Lisa will kick off the morning with live training so you do not have to worry about a thing! In typical Lisa fashion, she will tell you where to start and will walk you through step-by-step how to go from overwhelmed and drowning in paper to organized with a plan of action! Along with Lisa's live teaching, our professional organizers will be there every moment of the day to answer questions of what to keep and what to shred.

What do I wear?
Come as you are! Some women are more comfortable wearing casual clothes ... others want to sort and shred in their coziest loungewear. We want this weekend to be fun and productive ... with zero worry. So come as you are and get ready to power through your paper!
How much paper should I bring?
The amount of paper you bring is entirely up to you! Women bring boxes and boxes full of paper - some of them filling the back of a pickup truck. Others empty their filing cabinet and drawers and just bring that. Bring what feels comfortable for you. Just remember that without all the distractions of home, you just might get a lot more done than you think!
What if I have food allergies/sensitivities?
A salad bar will be available during the meals. Additionally, our local grocery store, Kroger, offers curbside pickup. Delivery service right to the hotel is available for a fee.

I don't even know what Organize 365 products I might need.
No worries! We will have Organize 365 products on hand right there in the paper sorting room. Professional organizers can make recommendations if you have any questions.
What if I don't even know how to do my Sunday Basket?
Have no fear! We will do a live, in-person Sunday Basket workshop in the afternoon on Sunday. One of our certified organizers will walk everyone through their Sunday Basket for the upcoming week. Don't have a Sunday Basket? We will have them on hand for you to purchase during the weekend. Not only will you leave the retreat with so much of your paper organized, your Sunday Basket for the upcoming week will also be done!
What if I don't want to come alone?
Have your sister, mom, or friend sign up, too! Feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know who your friend is. Our Live Events Coordinator, Janet, will ensure we put your tables close to one another. Organizing is even more fun with a friend! 🙂

Eliminate Your To Do List.
The Sunday Basket® is a system for processing mail, kitchen counter “to do” papers, and ongoing household projects.
The weekly routine of collecting, processing, and maintaining household to do’s and papers is the perfect training ground for all your future home organization skills.
And, like it or not, the mail just keeps on coming… giving us plenty of practice to hone and refine our organizing skills.
The Sunday Basket® can be as simple as the place you drop your unopened mail to complex enough to run every aspect of your household.
Over the last 16 years, I have tweaked and honed my Sunday Basket®into a productivity machine.
I rarely misplace any to-do and my family knows to drop all receipts, notes, and mail right in my Sunday Basket®.
The key to my productivity is a set of color-coordinated slash pockets that keep my ongoing ideas and tasks in order and insight without getting in my way.
The Complete Sunday Basket® System includes: Sunday Basket 1.0 + Sunday Basket 2.0 + the physical Sunday Basket.
In one Paper Organizing Retreat, you should be able to complete your Sunday Basket.
THE PAPER ORGANIZING RETREAT IS THE ANSWER TO: “Someday I will get my papers organized.”
Join us and let's end the paper chaos for good!
Hope to see you there!
The solution for eliminating your filing cabinet.
The Organize 365 line of Binders are designed to house all of the papers you used to file in a filing cabinet.
Every home should have a Home Reference Binder so you can best maintain it, and when the time comes to sell, add value to the sale or if needed in an insurance claim.
Every family member should have a Medical Binder in order to get the best ongoing healthcare and in case of emergency. (note - I add all my kid's school records and tests to their medical binders as well.)
Every family should have a Financial Binder to best manage the assets under your care.
Each household manager should have a Household Operations Binder to organize the fun traditions, relevant family planning sheets and general household functions at your fingertips.
Every Mama should have a Kids School Memory Binder to keep their child's precious artwork and school memories. And every Warrior Mama should have a Warrior Mama Binder to help advocate for their child's special needs.
In one Paper Organizing Retreat, you should be able to sort your file cabinet into each binder type. Each binder comes with over 20 printables. Those printables may require additional time once you are back home to complete.
Check out this awesome testimonial from a January attendee who went from 17 boxes to 9 and got all her binders done!
