There are times in everyone’s life when an extra pair of hands or eyes (or wings) are needed. You know you can get the job done yourself “when there’s time,” or “when the weather is better,” or “after Christmas,” etc., but for whatever reasons, the piles are still there collecting dust.  Trust me, I’m no stranger to procrastination.

But sometimes it just isn’t practical to do it yourself. Maybe you don’t want to figure out where everything should best be stored. Or, as a client of mine says, he’s “allergic” to the organizing process. He just wants to walk in his office and be able to find things. He doesn’t want to get involved with setting up filing systems, or measuring drawers for inserts for pencils and office supplies.

Sometimes, it’s impossible to put things away, because there is no designated place to put them. I can figure that out for you, by re-thinking use of space. Or perhaps you don’t even realize you don’t need to keep that old Ikea catalog because you have a newer one. I can help you edit out what you don’t need.

Another example: Feng shui techniques discourage keeping things under the bed. Chances are, if they’re buried too far under, you don’t need whatever it is. (No, I’m not talking about the cat.)

If you’re confused about what to keep, whether it’s a pair of shoes or last year’s phone bills, I can help you out. I’m blessed with sensibility as well as great taste (she said, modestly).

And if you feel embarrassed about your clutter, or feel like you’d be spoiling yourself by hiring someone to help in this way, read my blog entry about embarrassment. We all deserve to be spoiled sometimes, although I think of it as just taking care of your needs!

How I Work With You

My goal is to make your life easier by eliminating the overwhelming stress of having too many things or too much paper or too little space in your environment. In other words, handle the overflow.  I listen to how you describe your situation, I look at the space you have, and I assess what it will take to achieve your goal. Then (usually), I dive in. You have the choice of how much you want to participate. You can dive in, too, give occasional direction, or sit back in an easy chair and watch the fun. Yes, believe it or not, for me it’s fun. You know those kinds of games where you pick a card or tile and match it till they’re all mated?  Or remember Rubik’s cube where you try to match up all the squares so they’re the same color on each side?  Well, that’s what organizing is like for me.
