Roadblocks to Organization

All of us have roadblocks that get in our way of organizing certain areas of our lives.
  • I am too busy right now to worry about cleaning out that closet
  • I feel overwhelmed with the mess and wouldn't know where to begin
  • I don't know how to keep it organized once it's done
  • I need to pitch so many things but where do I begin
  • No one would want to help me with this project and it's too much to handle on my own

That, my friend, is where I come into the picture. I am that person who would love to help you with this hurdle and I can offer a fresh perspective to a situation that you feel is daunting.

All too often people say to me, "I would LOVE to have you come to my house and help me with organizing things, but I'm way too embarrassed for anyone to see my mess." Well, if I was scared easily by messes, I wouldn't be in this business. These are merely challenges that we take one step at a time, one piece of paper or one toy etc. at a time, until we get to a point where you can breathe easy in your once unorganized space.

A person's home should be a place where they feel at ease, not a place that screams chaos. When a person walks through the door to their home, they should feel welcomed and relaxed. I know how busy life can get, especially when children are involved, but there are little things that everyone in the family can learn to do each day that will make life so much easier.

So, contact me today, and we will set up a plan to get things in Simple Order in your life!!

New Year's Resolution

Christmas is over and we’re all more focused on finances right now and looking for ways to save money. Each one of us can improve our ability to cut costs by making some basic organizing principles part of our daily life. Getting organized is really just a matter of making simple organizing habits a routine part of your life. Think about using these concepts to help you save money in your home.
  • Simplify -- It is a proven fact that most of us have more "stuff" than we need or use. By eliminating excess "stuff" from our lives, we can free up time spent storing, cleaning and maintaining unnecessary and unused items.

  • Plan Ahead -- Make a list of the items you need and group shopping trips together to help cut back on gas. Create menus for the week and stick to them to eliminate last minute stops at fast food restaurants.

  • Develop Systems -- Set up a location to keep bills and set a date to pay them. Keep coupons in your purse so that they are handy when you need them. Assign homes for specific items so that you won't mistakenly re-purchase the same item because you couldn't locate the first.

  • Identify Priorities -- Decide what is REALLY important in your life. Anytime our resources (time, money and space) are limited, it is especially important to keep only the things we truly need and love around us.

Organization Tips

I would like to post an organizational tip each week and ask anyone who would like to add their own to please do so.

My tip for the week is:

  • To create more space in your closet, move out of season clothes to another location until they are in season again and then swap out.
  • I move my out of season clothes to plastic containers and store them in our basement.
  • This frees up quite a bit of space in my closet and allows me to get a better view of what my clothing choices are for the day.
