What is the SOS Organizing Program?
The basic SOS Organizing Program is a 12-month system for getting your life and your home clutter-free. It is divided into 12 prerecorded modules of approximately 90 minutes each. These modules cover every facet of organizing including: How to approach your clutter How to handle yourself when you are having difficulty making yourself organize What to do when you find yourself massively procrastinating The program goes from the psychological to the physical. It is designed to be inspiring as well as practical. In every prerecorded module, you get practical advice and concrete suggestions about how to handle your clutter. Who is it for?
How much is the program?
The Monthly Membership fee for everything in the SOS Organizing Program is only $37 per month!
How does the program work?
The SOS Organizing Program is pre-recorded and is delivered in a webinar format. The webinars are recorded in advance and are delivered to you, one per month, and include a handsome 10 - 12 page handout full of graphics and places for you to write the helpful ideas that you receive every month. During the webinar you will not see Marsha, you will see the handout as she thoroughly goes through the material one page at a time. When the monthly webinar is over, you will know exactly what to do to start working on your clutter. But even more, you will know the rationale behind every action.
Do you have a membership policy?
Membership policy: You can join for as long as you like and leave when you want. Period. After your first month, you will be automatically charged $37 per month unless you ask us to stop your membership.
Suppose I don't like it? Am I stuck for an entire year?
You are never stuck. Join for a month, check out the materials in the SOS Organizing Program and then evaluate it by any criteria you choose. If you don't think it’s worth the monthly fee you are not stuck. You can cancel at any time.
How much time do I need to work the program?
15 minutes – Your organizing is broken down into 15-minute segments. All you need to be able to work this program is 15 minutes. If you can give yourself and your life 15 minutes every day, Marsha will use that to teach you how to get organized. The first thing you will learn is Marsha's popular “quadrant method” for organizing anything. You simply break your organizing surface into quadrants. This does three things:
1) it creates a smaller surface to make decisions about,
2) once you have one quadrant cleaned off, you create a “visual disruption” which compels you do get the rest of your surface cleared off, and
3) it gives you confidence that you can continue… because if you can clear off one quadrant, you can clear off one more. And then one more. And then one more. Until all four are cleared off. Then you learn how to keep it cleared off (“bulldogging it”)
How much does the program cost?
The program costs $37. per month. When I was working as an organizer going from home to home, I used to feel bad for the people who needed me that I couldn’t help. When I was teaching the 4-week classes, I would get email from people who really wanted to take my classes, but couldn’t afford it. My heart would go out, and I would wish I could help more people. When my marketing guy came up with this idea I jumped on it. Finally I could help everyone who truly needed my help, because this program is so affordable that if you just don’t buy fast food for one day each month, you can afford my program. I feel good in my heart because I placed real help in the ability of anyone to be able to get real help.
What else is included in the program?
When you join you are invited to join our private FaceBook group (which will become or private community once my website is completed). In the private group you are invited to share your accomplishments, and encourage others who are sharing theirs. We have a FaceBook team who will welcome you, and who will tell you that you are doing a good job. This is important because some people have no one to give them encouragement, and organizing is soooo hard to do!
How can I know if the program will work in my special circumstance?
The program takes you from where you are, to where you want to go as it relates to your cluttered life. You may be a person with very little clutter, but your files need to be put in order, or you may be a major hoarder with paths that run through your home. You may be a shopaholic and your home is full of bags of things you can’t even put away because there’s no more room, or you may be a wonderful soul who receives a lot of gifts, and you don’t know what to do with them all. Perhaps you’re a young mom with children underfoot and no time to organize, or a professional who takes care of an elderly parent. No matter… the program is designed with your life situation in mind. Every monthly module is generic enough to apply to your individual situation. I’ve received thank you messages from people from all walks of life, who started with very different situations, and all have been able to be helped through the SOS program’s gentle but firm guidance.
