Conquer Digital Clutter / MJ Rosenthal of An Organized Life on the Emily Rooney RadioShow


As a Newton Professional Organizer, I am lucky to have the opportunity to discuss getting organized with many different media sources.  I sat with Emily Rooney for her radio show to talk about how to conquer digital clutter.

Listen to the clip at:

Do you know what you want to keep?  What you want to throw away?  I can help.  I can show you how to cut your paper work and filing time in half, just by identifying what you can toss and what you should take the time to file.

I’m MJ Rosenthal, Newton professional organizer and organizational coaching specializing in helping people create balance between space, belongings and time – and providing coaching and training for Clients with ADD and Executive Function challenges.

An Organized Office / Before & After



Is your office and all of that paper your achilles heel? Does it feel like you will never get it under control – or maybe you don’t even know where to start.  SPACE:  Sort, Purge, Assign, Contain & Engage/Evaluate.

An Organized Life will not only help you get to where you want to be, we also transfer and teach you the skills so you can continue to stay in control.

An Organized Laundry Room / Before & After


There is nothing better than an organized laundry room – next to the kitchen and family room, it’s the most used room in the house.

Organize your laundry room using the space process.  Sort, purge, assign a location based on frequency, contain (yes, that’s where you shop), and then engage & evaluate.

An Organized Halloween

Here are some quick and easy tips for an organized halloween:


  • Lay out costumes. Know what they are wearing and where all the miscellaneous parts are. If the costume requires special parts or make-up, place it out with the costume.
  • Have a healthy after school snack ready to give them when they get home from school. Have them eat it before chasing out to gather candy. This way you can at least ensure that they’ll get something decent and won’t just fill up on candy.
  • Locate treat gathering containers. Little ones like those cute round pumpkins with a handle, while the older kids prefer to pile treats in bigger bags like a pillow case. You may even have something clever that ties in with the costume they are wearing.
  • Prepare an easy meal. A pot of chili or something similar that can sit in a crock pot so dinner-on-the-go can happen whenever it’s convenient. Throw to the wind any idea of having a pleasant sit-down meal on Halloween.
  • Get your halloween hand-outs ready. Find a large bowl or decorative container like a cauldron and put the candy near the door.
