Does the sight of a cluttered room give you heart palpitations?  Does it make you feel crummy about yourself and how you keep your space?  Do you feel an actual physical reaction to things being a mess … tightness in your chest or a heavy feeling in the pit of your stomach?   Or does.. read more →

Gorgeous chunks of time!

School is out and I am exhausted. Mentally and physically. The final week felt like running a sprint at the end of a marathon. Make that an ultra marathon, entirely uphill, with an armful of bricks.   Let the lazy, hazy days of summer begin!   No wait. Hazy, yes. Lazy, never.   I have.. read more →

Clutter- The elephant in the room

0 Comment

It’s funny how clutter sneaks up on you. You bring something into your house – be it something you bought, mail, schoolwork, dry cleaning, a coat you were wearing – and you set it down. Maybe on the kitchen counter or table … just that one thing. Then later that day, you walk back past.. read more →

Are you hard on yourself? I bet you are. I mean, if you’re reading a blog on a professional organizer’s website, then you’re probably someone who strives for betterment. Just a hunch.

30 Days Hath November

So we started. As a family. Then stopped a week later. Not because we ran out of reasons, but because we are quite busy. Lame excuse, but I’m sticking to it. Of our dismal number of declarations, my favorite was Edy’s when she was thankful for “my toys and clothes because I never paid a.. read more →

I recently spent 4 days in Nashville, TN working with a client who not only has two businesses (she is a builder as well as an interior designer – a true double threat!) but is blessed to be busy.  Really busy. Okay, actually slammed with work.  So much so that even though she loves every.. read more →
