I have been on air a few times providing organizing tips, but I'm not yet one of those PO's that you see every time you turn on the TV (how nice it must be to live in Hollywood and have an inside connection in the “biz!”) My dream is to have a show about organizing on the road as “The Traveling Organizer” — seeing clients in different places as we RV around the country, and showing how we keep it simple in such a small space. Producers, give me a call! Here are a few of my clips…
Early in my organizing career, the Fine Living Network had me put together a series of tips for organizing your garage — to this day (years and years later), friends will call me up saying, “I was watching TV the other day and heard a voice and said, 'That's Ramona!'” It's a little surreal.
I was presented the award for the “Best Organizing Educational Resource” at the 2008 LA Organizing Awards ceremony — quite an honor, and I got to meet Peter Walsh (just the nicest guy on the planet, and a great accent to boot) and Sherry Shepherd from “The View” (dumb comments on the show about the earth being flat aside, she's pretty sharp in person!)
This year, I'm embarrassed to admit that I sort of swept the awards — winning the “Best Organizing Educational Resource,” the “Best Organizing Website Or Blog,” and the “Best Organizing Product Retailer” awards at the 2009 ceremony. This time, my awards were presented by Hal Sparks, and I also had a lovely conversation about the “greenplug” concept with Christopher Knight (Peter Brady). Turns out that we're preventing “phantom electrical draw” in our Airstream already with the use of surge protectors, but there's always more that you can do.
