You CAN be organized and clutter free. Yes, you!

Let me show you how

IMG_2467 mediumDo you dread walking into your home office because it’s so chaotic and disorganized?

Do you have a perfectly good home office that you aren’t using because your organizing systems haven’t kept up with reality?

Are you craving simplicity and serenity but don’t see a way to get there?

Do you want to balance your full, engaged life with more simplicity and serenity?

Is your inability to make effective decisions about your stuff preventing you from getting to the level of organization you want?

Is it driving you nuts not to be able to find things?

Do you worry constantly about forgetting appointments and other commitments?

You’ve come to the right place.

Having an organized life that flows is possible.

Picture this: you wake up to a home that’s cozy and serene. Horizontal surfaces are clear and clothes are neatly put away. Your decor stands out in each uncluttered room.

You open a drawer and immediately find what you were looking for. Everything in your closet is clean, ready to wear and appealing. Walking into your home office inspires and energizes you to do your best work.

Your to do list has become a helpful ally that you enjoy crossing things off of. Email is under your control. You easily contain your Facebooking and web surfing so you can still enjoy them.

That may seem like pie in the sky. You’re sure you are the type who won’t ever be able to be organized. But…

What if it were simple?

What if I could show you how to get there, step by step? Imagine having a place for everything and a do-able way to get things put away. Imagine being on top of your life and how calm and centered you feel.

You can have this. Truly.

I can help you break through the mass of overwhelmingness. I’ll guide you patiently and compassionately to get the peaceful, functional spaces you crave. I’ll create systems specially for you to make it easy to keep your life clutter free and organized.

Does that sound appealing? Great! Get started by getting my Organizing Made Easy kit.

I hate filing

Facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterestlinkedinby feather

I always recommend that my clients be as ruthless as possible when filing paper. When are you going to look at that again? Why would you need it in the future? What terrible thing is going to happen if you get rid of it? When was the last time you even opened that drawer? 

Part of my agenda is to get them to keep less paper because paper takes up space, space that could be used better by more useful items. Another agenda I have reflects my attitude toward filing: I hate it. So it naturally follows that the less one needs to file, the better.

Are you with me on that?

Yes, I hate filing. I have a perfectly serviceable system and I can find things in it. That’s not the problem.

I’m not sure why I hate it so much, but let me explore. One reason is that I often am pretty sure that I will not look at a piece of paper again, ever, but it’s hard to get rid of. I just don’t want to make that decision. There’s a little cloud of uncertainty that I don’t want to investigate. 

A related reason is that I don’t like opening those drawers full of paper I haven’t looked at in forever. I feel burdened by having all that paper, and by not wanting to deal with it. Putting more in there makes me feel guilty. 

Here are some less hateful strategies for keeping files in decent shape:

  • Have a filing in box. With all your to-be-filed papers in one spot, you’ll still be able to find things even if you haven’t filed them yet. 😉
  • Look in the back of some over-stuffed folders. If you file with current items in front, the oldest stuff will be in back. That’s the paper that’s most likely to be unneeded.
     
  • Go though some folders where decision making will be easy, such as one for instruction manuals. Find manuals for appliances that you no longer own and toss them. 

Do you have any great file taming ideas? Let me know!
