Organizing Through Life

SmartHappyOrganized Too Much Stuff 3This has been my biggest year ever to help homeowners become organized! I have tackled some way big projects – completing whole home organization, no less!

Why? Actually there are several reasons. The two top reasons that most families/couples present are:

1.       Elderly individuals needing to downsize and eliminate to make it easier for their executors to handle their estate.

2.        Homeowners who have been in their home for decades (3 or more) and have too much stuff. Their children have all left home (and they still have all of the children’s memories) and they have moved on with their lives.

How about you? Do you have too much stuff? For about 80% of our clients the answer is “absolutely”! Here is an article that my good friend in Colorado wrote regarding too much stuff. It talks about the down and dirty of why we have trouble releasing items and so much more. 

As the children head back to school, it may be your intention to get your home, paperwork, systems or closets organized. (And, you know the weather is already cooperating to get us in that mood!)

Don’t let this fall season slip by without getting your space organized.

What stands in your way? These are the two biggest reasons:

1.       I don’t know where to start. (We can help you get started in the process, give us a call and let’s talk).

2.       If I can’t do it perfectly, I can’t do it at all. (Don’t let your OCD tendencies get in your way).

I recommend the mindset….’nothing happens until something happens’.

Here is what one of our recent clients said, “It was great that you not just helped me organize – but you took it all away for me! That is a job in itself”.  (In just 4 hours we loaded my car with books, miscellaneous items and a few clothes and cleared enough space for her to organize what she loves – her homemade herb items.

Love your life again….make the decision to get organized.
