Marie Kondo started an organizing revolution with her Netflix hit Tidying Up. Her method of decluttering has been lauded many times over, inspiring people across the globe to declutter according to what sparks joy for them individually.
However, she’s not the only expert in the organization space. Many podcasters are stepping up to their microphones to provide tips that will help you lead a more fulfilled and organized life. From a pair of minimalists who can tackle the worst junk drawer to a professional organizer who talks through mental clutter, these are five of the best organization podcasts that you can listen to on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or wherever you listen to your favorite shows.
Professional organizer Janet M. Taylor hosts this weekly podcast that focuses on common challenges with organizing and explores how to navigate each one. Taylor, who is often joined by a variety of guests, takes you through the mental benefits of decluttering and encourages listeners to donate unwanted items and give back to the community. New episodes, each about 20 minutes long, typically come out on Mondays, ensuring you’re well motivated for the week ahead.
Let’s face it: Stuff isn’t just stuff. We often have many emotions tied up in our things, making it difficult to part with even the smallest and oldest knick-knacks. Sometimes, however, it’s best to remove an item from our home for our own good. The Minimalists Podcast, hosted by Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus, explores how to eliminate all this excess without throwing away good memories and keepsakes. Recent episodes focus on navigating conversations with loved ones about sentimental items we’ve given away, the difference and relationship between environmentalism and minimalism, and why a cluttered schedule (or “busyness”) is an issue. Though some episodes are 45 minutes or more, the podcast frequently releases short recordings that run for as little as two minutes, proving how it’s possible to do more with less.
Clutter is more than a bunch of stuff on the floor. Sometimes, our minds, not just our rooms, are full of stuff we’d be better off without. Professional organizer and coach Julie Coraccio aims to help listeners achieve and maintain balance in their lives and homes through her podcast. She talks about clearing nostalgic clutter (i.e., old gifts you don’t use anymore), setting boundaries, and growing into your best self. Many are under 30 minutes, and some are as short as five minutes long, so you can fit an episode or two into even the busiest day.
Rebekah Saltzman, a personal organization expert and coach, specializes in advising people to feel more fulfilled with less. She also walks the walk by sharing all of her best tips in under 15 minutes. She understands that clearing physical space in our homes can be mentally difficult, but she’s seen so many positive results throughout her career that she can confidently say it’s worth the effort. In her podcasts, she shares advice concerning cleaning your desk, organizing money, and letting go of broken items in the home. Saltzman also takes on topics specific to the Jewish faith. Recently, she also guided a short meditation session, emphasizing the importance of spatial and mental organization and clarity.
We often think about decluttering in the physical sense. However, professional organizer Shelina Jokhiya knows that we can have digital and mental clutter. She gives organizing tips for all of this in her short weekly podcast, Decluttr Me. She provides practical tips for organizing jeans, sorting items by season, buying sustainable items, and even streamlining your phone’s home screen. She also amplifies specifically Middle Eastern resources, with episodes about prepping for Ramadan and organizing Desi fridges.
Living a more organized life can ensure you’re living a happier life, only surrounding yourself with things you need and things that bring you joy. Save time and energy by knowing where everything is, and increase your productivity with a space that caters to your needs and lifestyle. Parting with items that no longer serve a purpose can be emotional, but it’s the first step toward maintaining a clear, purposeful space.
If you’re unsure how to get started on your decluttering journey, spending just five or 10 minutes with these shows will provide all the inspiration you need. Whether you’re purging years of accumulated stuff from your home or just trying to organize files on your computer, these experts will give you all the tips and tools you need to live a tidy, happy life.
