Organizers on Twitter Tweet Tips

Last Friday I had the pleasure to participate in the first Professional Organizer Twitter party chat which was guest hosted by Allison Carter, CPO®.

Since I'm a fan of the professional organizing community I asked Allison if she wanted to do a guest blog post on the Rubbermaid blog.  She graciously agreed. Below is her post. Enjoy!

It was an inspiration party on twitter for Professional
Organizers. Professional Organizers on twitter teamed up to bring awareness to the
industry with an Ask the Organizer chat party.

Twitterers could ask questions to @askorg and the Professional
answered and discussed via 140 max character tweets. The event was designed to
bring awareness to the organizing industry and all the people and things that
help get people organized.

The Party Organizers had so much fun another one is in the
works. Follow @askorg on for updates on when the next
one will be held.

You can see the entire chat (in backwards chronological
order) by going to and do a search for
