Conquer Clutter!

It can be outgrown clothes, obsolete papers, broken toys or unused gifts. We may be selective in some areas but not in others. Objects may be strewn about or wedged into drawers or piled on kitchen countertops or neatly stored in large plastic storage bins.

Our clutter seems to have a life of its own, to multiply without effort on our part. We may feel overwhelmed, controlled by our possessions, doomed to be hopelessly disorganized. No matter how we deal wit our clutter, it can be a source of pain and shame to ourselves and to those we live with. Not inviting people over to your home is the first sign.

Despite this pain, we fear throwing things out. We think we might need it, fix it, or wear it someday. We don't want to be wasteful or ungrateful. We don't know what to keep and what to discard. We don't know how much is enough and we are smothered by it! And of course, we don't know where to begin to de-clutter.

De-cluttering is not merely eliminating, but gradually transforming our space so that we surround ourselves only with things that express our purpose. It means turning something useless into something useful; creating more leisure and space; eliminating distractions and simplifying our lives.

Although we may cling to our clutter, what we really yearn for are surroundings of beauty, order, serenity, a balanced life, and harmonious relationships.

A Professional Organizer can guide you in making this happen. Call me and we will devise a simple, thought-out plan to get our life in order.

How It Works

I am here to help you get organized. However, the space must be uncluttered before it becomes organized. There is no catch. Everything does not need to be tossed; it just needs a place to rest. Every piece of paper, photo, handbag, tax return, paid bill, toy, medicine, DVD, home video, and owner's manual, needs to have a designated space in your home. Once you clear out what you are holding onto and distinguish their new locations, that's when you start your journey to becoming organized. The paperwork, mail, photos, returns/exchanges add up fast and within the blink of an eye you have clutter everywhere and it becomes overwhelming. A bigger place or more room than you already have may be the quick fix, but you will soon be in the same exact place you are right now, with just more stuff.

Organizing is a process that takes TIME to do. Remember we need TIME to do the transfer of (organizing) skill. Without learning, it will just go back to the way it was before I came to organize.

My philosophy is that you can reduce all kinds of stress in your life, if you begin with an organized space and systems that work. When you clear the clutter from your life, you can focus on what is truly important to you. This service has a commitment to quality, reliability and integrity.
