This month on the podcast, I'm excited to sit down with organizer and creator of "apartment solutions," Diane Lowy. Diane works at New York at Home to help New Yorkers create functional, organized spaces that help their lives to flow more easily, kind of like we do with qi! Also, check out this month's My Favorite Things, where Diane suggests some great options for getting organized for the school year and / or busy season!

  • Apartment functionality
  • How functionality relates to organization
  • Benefits to having a functional, organized home
  • Clutter and stress
  • Getting rid of what no longer serves you
  • The idealized self vs. the actual self
  • Accepting who you are
  • Knowing when to get rid of things
  • Organizing the right places
  • Organizing closets for work / school
  • Reducing clothing decisions
  • Back-to-school tips

Thanks so much to Diane for sharing these wonderful tips on organizing your space! A holistic space is almost always an organized one. :) Did you learn any new tips on how to manage your space? If so, let us know in the comments!
