I’m a “Do It Yourself-er”

Last updated on

I have always been the type of person that would prefer to do things myself. I like the feeling of accomplishment I get when I do things myself and I like the challenge of figuring out how to do it on my own. In all honesty, I think one of the biggest factors that played into me being a do-it-yourself-er was that there was never an excess amount of money that I could use to hire others to do it for me. Well, I can tell you that my opinion of not having enough money to have other people help… read more »

What? Do you think I’m crazy?

Last updated on

If you think it’s a crazy idea to hire and pay a professional organizer to help you with your clutter and disorganization, think again. It costs you a lot more if you don’t hire one. Here are just a few of the ways you’ll “pay” for not de-cluttering and getting organized. You stay stuck in the past. Because your space is full of stuff from the past, there is no room for relationships, or a fuller life, to come in. Since we are constantly distracted by the things from our past that are all around us, we can’t focus on… read more »

Ask yourself the hard questions

Last updated on

If you’re like most people, you probably struggle with what you should and shouldn’t keep. Part of what professional organizers do is help our clients think through whether or not they should keep something by asking them a series of questions. If you jot down this partial list of questions and start going through your home or office asking yourself these questions for every item you have, I guarantee you’ll see that you don’t need, or even want most of them. What is this? What do I use this for? Do I really even use this? How many of these… read more »

Ahhh, such music to my ears

Last updated on

I have a 25 year old daughter that suffers from ADHD. Living a peaceful, orderly, organized life has never been easy for her. We’ve had many challenges over the years and I’ve been extremely hard on her in many instances thinking that would straighten her out. Because of my work as a Professional Organizer, I have taken countless classes on ADHD and have learned so much about it. Unbeknownst to me all of the years she was growing up, people with ADHD struggle with organization. Since I wasn’t educated on ADHD when I was raising her, I would go back… read more »

The cost of disorganization

Last updated on

Disorganization can cost you. Having your time, tasks and stuff organized prevents: Lost information that is never found, resulting in missing important deadlines or events. Misplaced information that takes time to find, decreasing your productivity. Late fees and poor credit rating. Auto renewals that go into effect without human/manual intervention. Rush or overnight fees to compensate for lateness. Duplicate purchases because you can’t find what you need. Storage units costs to store things you think you might need someday. Stress-related medical problems

Why live an organized life?

Last updated on

I live an organized life because I like a sense of calm. I want to feel comfortable if guests drop by unannounced. I want to find my phone and my keys instantly. I want to put my hands on a much-needed document at a moment’s notice. I want to locate the perfect outfit in my closet. I want to grab all of the ingredients for my dinner recipe. And I want to do all of these things (and more) easily, quickly and in a relaxed manner. I want to breathe easy and smile and have lots of enthusiasm and motivation… read more »
