… And there goes the heat …

The heat and humidity of summer are hopefully behind us, and fall is on the way bringing fresh air and a burst of organizing energy. Open your window and take a deep breath! This is a great time to look around and pick a room or project that needs attention. Visually and functionally what needs fixing in your home?

Sometimes 2 or 3 sessions with a Professional Organizer can be all you need to help you settle on a project, define goals and priorities, break the job into manageable chunks, overcome inertia and get you on your way. Good luck with your organizing projects this fall, and let me know if you need any help.

Is organizing a business or a practice?

December 15, 2014


Therapists have practices.  Real Estate agents have businesses.  Some Organizers want to grow their business and hire staff. Some, like me are solo practitioners (with occasional help for bigger jobs). Coming from a health care background I guess I lean more towards the practice side. I love one-to-one of organizing where I help my clients gain insight into their relationship with their “stuff”,  and I get to watch that relationship change over time.  It’s great to see anxiety and avoidance give way to matter-of-factness or even excitement about working together. Often new priorities seem possible when possessions and paperwork are under control.
