Back to School

It’s time for Back To School: Get organized now for a great year!

Back to school organizing is not really what you may want to think about in July but in our neck of the woods, school starts at the beginning of August so if we don’t get our act together now, the first day will sneak up on us and we will be frantically shopping at Target at midnight buying binders and Sharpies!

New Organizer Training! Thursday, April 4 2013

What: A day long training and hands on organizing session to not only help out a great organization by getting their new kitchens organized but a terrific way to get some hands on experience or simply share your skills.

And the papers never stop….

You know that flood of papers you get pretty much daily? The mail, the bills, the free newspaper you pick up, the catalogs, the kids
permission slips & homework, the wedding invitation, the coupon flyers, etc.

After the holidays…declutter your decorations!

Now that the holidays are behind us, let’s talk about your holiday decor! While I’m personally not a big fan of
decorating for the holidays, a lot of my clients are and I’ve done my share of organizing ornaments, spray foamed trees, wreaths, wrapping paper & bows, angels, garland, and lights.

Follow through…part way is just not enough

I recently got a facebook message from my cousin asking if I’d mailed a check for something I had purchased from her shop when we were visiting out of town. I said, of course I had mailed it! I mean, I’m organized.

3 simple tips to having a better day

The times I’m late & frazzled are the times when I think I can get so much more done than I have time for. Just one more load of wash, one more email, tweet an oh so witty observation, run just one quick errand before I have to be somewhere.

kids clothes and shoes

Thinking of consigning your kids stuff?

It’s that time of year again…kids consignment sales are popping up all around my neck of the woods. I love these sales because it means that I can get clothes, books & toys for my daughter at a fraction of the retail prices in usually nearly new condition.


A few weeks ago, I used the word ‘purge’ with a client. Her reaction – and I may not have noticed if I hadn’t sensed some inner conflict going on – was illuminating. It was a combination of a lip curl, a nose wrinkle and an arm crossing.
