1. 322 - What Kind of a Bug Are You? Lisa Woodruff 37:07

As I shared on the Discovering YOU podcast last week, all this month I will be diving deep into different personality tests, models, and ways of thinking about yourself and how you move through the world. This week, I am excited to share my conversation with Cas of Clutterbug. Listen in as we talk about the four different ClutterBug types that Cas has identified. She shares how she discovered four different organizing styles. In her model, she identifies a preference for organization at a macro or micro level. She also talks about how people prefer their items to be hidden or out in the open.

During our conversation, Cas and I both chat about what our personal ClutterBug types are. I also share how my daughter is a completely different style, and we do some brainstorming about how to adapt teaching our children the skills of organizing when they are different from us. We also talk about how to adapt the Sunday Basket® to each of the different organizing styles. I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did. 

If you can, go take her “What ClutterBug Are You?” Quiz on her website before you listen so you can follow along for your own style.

Under Lisa’s direction, Organize 365® has conducted academic research establishing the definitions of housework, home organization and the weight of paper in the American home. This ongoing research is making the invisible work at home visible to all. The goal is to eliminate it and free people from the monotonous tasks of daily living; and unlock their time for what they are uniquely created to bring forth in the world.

She is the author of four books including: How ADHD Affects Home Organization and The Paper Solution. Lisa’s understanding of the lived female American experience has helped her to create products & courses like the Sunday Basket®. These products and courses externalize the routine tasks that take up the executive functioning capacity of our brains; freeing us up to think and create again!
