Our online classes provide students the opportunity to learn in the comfort of their homes, at whatever time of day fits the student’s schedule. When you purchase an online class, you gain access to a private area of the simplify 101 website. This area includes the private community forum where you can interact with others and ask questions. This private area is also where you access all the lesson materials. Lesson materials are provided in a variety of formats: lesson material can be read and listened to while online and connected to the internet, or you can download your class materials and use them on your computer or mobile device. You choose the best method(s) for you!
Unless otherwise noted on the enrollment page, as soon as you purchase a spot in a class, you will receive an email containing instructions for accessing it. You’ll need to create an account in our online class system prior to taking your first class. Even if you’re already registered with a password and username in our shopping cart system, online classes require a separate registration.
You’ll have lifetime access to the lesson materials. All our materials are provided in a variety of formats—downloads in Adobe PDF format, online web pages, and MP3 audio files, so you can learn in the way that is most productive and comfortable for you! Some of our classes also provide video. You’ll find all of the specifics on the enrollment page for each class.
Classes include a community forum so you can share photos of your organizing projects if you like, plus interact with your fellow students. When you join a simplify 101 online class, you join a supportive and inspiring community that will motivate you to take action and create change in your home and life.
No. The only possible additional fees would be for any purchases you decide to make for your organizing projects. A variety of storage options are discussed in each class, and we also encourage use-what-you-have organizing. Often people have on hand the containers and storage systems needed to get organized. Any purchases you make as a result of taking a class are optional and are in no way a requirement.
Yes! You can definitely ask questions and interact with others on their organizing journey. Simply post your questions in our community forum and a simplify 101 community leader will help you get the answers you’re looking for.

Each lesson includes specific action steps you can take to move forward on your organizing projects. One of our favorite sayings is action creates change. Online classes make it simple to take action and create change in your home and life. You will have the opportunity to share your progress via our online forum, though this is completely optional.
If you’re like us, shopping for containers and other organizing products is a big part of the fun of getting organized! The natural temptation is to buy the products at the start of the project thinking the containers hold the key to getting organized. Often though, shopping before organizing can lead to buying products that aren’t needed or are the wrong size or function. It’s best to declutter and organize first, and shop for containers second.
There’s no need to purchase products before starting a class. If items are needed for your project, you’ll get great info for selecting the best products via the class materials.
Most definitely! Online organizing classes have several advantages over other methods of getting organized. For one, the information is delivered in bite-sized pieces, and each lesson includes specific action steps. As soon as you follow any of the action steps, you’ll be on your way to a more organized home and life! Additionally, you have help and support along the way when you access our friendly online community.
Each class is different, but as a general rule of thumb, you should count on spending forty-five minutes to an hour reading or listening to each new lesson’s materials. How much time you spend taking action will vary. The time you invest during the class is completely up to you—but the more time you allocate, the more you’ll accomplish.
Absolutely! Everyone is invited to participate in our classes! All materials are in English—so as long as you can read and understand English, you’re good to go and welcome to participate!
No doubt there are some amazing organizing resources out there. Checking out Pinterest and other organizing blogs are some of our favorite pastimes! We have spent more hours pinning organizing content than we care to admit. If you are already a very organized person or organizing comes easily for you, this might be all you need.
However, if you want to learn how to get and stay organized in a way that works for you, it’s going to take countless hours of digging through blogs and photos to compile ideas to try. That can be incredibly time consuming and overwhelming—if you are already overwhelmed by disorganization or clutter! Then, if the solution you come up with isn’t the right solution for you, the results won’t be lasting, and you’ll be left feeling discouraged.

A good place to start is with the area that is causing you the most stress or anxiety. What’s nagging at you? Is it the pile of paper and bills on your kitchen table? Is it your car that hasn’t fit in your garage for over a year? Is it your hall closet that’s a hazard to open? Work on this area for a short amount of time. We recommend setting a timer for fifteen minutes and decluttering until the timer dings. Don’t over-think where to start…just get started doing something, anything that feels right to you. As you start to take action you’ll feel more and more motivated, and the next best steps to take will become clearer and clearer.
