Join us in The Productive Home Solution™!

Our Mission

Organize 365® helps busy people, in all phases of life, learn the functional skills of home and paper organization in one year with organizing systems that work. By developing these skills, people have the time to pursue their passions and unique gifting and calling.

Our Vision

Through research, targeted surveys, and data analysis, Organize 365® will bring to light the organizational needs of individuals. Podcast conversations and thought leadership will shape and develop the discussion about the “stuff” in American homes.
As the trusted leader in home and paper organization, Organize 365® will be the go-to resource for busy individuals, future professional organizers, home organizational brands, and the media. 
Organize 365® will help individuals "finally get organized" with home and paper organization courses and products that combine teaching and applications of practical organization principles. 

Why Research?

When writing The Paper Solution: What to Shred, What to Save, and How to Stop It From Taking Over Your Life, Lisa found a lot of organizational “statistics” but was often unable to find an original research study or source for the numbers repeatedly cited on the internet. Additionally, much of the available information about household organization was collected in the 1980s to early 2000s. Over twenty years later, it is important to collect and analyze updated information to better explore and understand household organization today. 

Organize 365® has initiated research about The State of the American Home in the 21st Century. We are partnering with several organizations and independent researchers to ensure our data collection is ethical, accurate, and interpreted properly. Organize 365® will share information and knowledge gained from rigorous scientific research.

Organize 365® Research Study #2 
Winter 2021
Home Organization Isn’t Just an Optional Hobby for Women

We would like to better understand the effects of cognitive overload, time management, motivation, and how these impact one’s ability to create organization systems within their homes. Due to cognitive overload, lack of focus, increased anxiety and depression have been correlated to completing tasks and implementing home organization. Additionally, time management and motivation have been correlated with constructive use of time and the ability to prioritize important projects. Results of the proposed study could provide recommendations for overcoming each of these factors and increasing the ability to implement organizational systems within one’s home. We will seek to answer two questions:

1. How does cognitive overload affect the creation of personal, family, storage, and paper management systems?

2. How do time management and motivation affect the creation of personal, family, storage, and paper management systems?

The Role Women Play in the 21st Century Home and Gender Equality
A State of the Art Literature Review 

Sarah M. Dyson, MS, PhD, and Lisa Woodruff

Organize 365® has recognized an ongoing situation. Women in the 21
st century home are not able to live life to their full potential. Organize 365®, like many women worldwide, believes that every woman has a significant purpose, be it the very best organizer or a fortune 500 entrepreneur. Women of the 21st century struggle to reach and maintain their goals on a daily or weekly basis. Organize 365® has a hypothesis that this may be due to a lack of organization in the home.

Organization is a teachable and learnable skill; therefore, anyone can cultivate their organization talents to suit their needs. Thus Organize 365® will be taking a deep dive into the empirical research to understand precisely what has happened to women in the home over the past 50 years. We will also collect current data to understand what is currently happening among women in 21st-century households. We will seek to answer two questions:

1. Is there a disproportionate amount of time spent on housework between gender?

2. Is there a significant difference in the emotional impact of organizing tasks of daily living between genders?
