This site is for working professionals, entrepreneurs, homemakers, small business owners, academic professionals, retirees, and students from around the world.

  • You want practical, straightforward, step-by-step instructions and solutions to common everyday problems.

  • You want to become a better person today than you were yesterday.
  • You’re not afraid to roll up your sleeves and get to work to make your dreams come true.

If this sounds at all like you, then you should definitely stick around. 🙂

Me working with one of my professional organizing clients.

Hi, I’m Rashelle Isip. I’m a New York City-based organization, time management, and productivity blogger, consultant, and author.

I love helping people live more organized and balanced lives.

Whether it’s showing you how to deal with a double-booked schedule, what to keep in mind when you’re planning a large event, or how be productive at home after a day of work, I’m here to help!

I started six years ago as a creative project.

I love all things related to order and organization.

Apparently I was destined for this type of work…

As a child, I organized my Halloween candy and even begged my father to read me Robert’s Rules of Order as bedtime reading (all true!).

I guess you could say starting a blog on these subjects seemed like the right thing to do.

Over 1,000 posts later, I’m thrilled to say has thousands of readers around the world, and has been featured on sites like Good Housekeeping, Cosmopolitan, Fast Company, The Atlantic, Lifehack, Daily Worth, and Refinery 29.

Here, you’ll find practical organization, time management and productivity tips, written with a heartfelt, genuine, desire to support and inspire you to reshape and change your environment, habits, and life, for the better. 

I hope my blog helps you become more organized, more balanced, and life a more relaxed life.

If you ever have a question about organization, time management, or productivity, send me an email!

I love hearing from my readers. In fact, some of the most popular posts on the site have been suggested by readers. 🙂

I look forward to seeing you around the blog!

Yours in order,
