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.

Declutter cardboard boxes

Facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterestlinkedinby feather

I worked with a client yesterday to declutter her garage. It went faster than we thought it would because a quarter of what was in there turned out to be empty boxes!

I find many people hang onto boxes for a variety of reasons. This client was moving and thought they’d be helpful. In my experience with movers, they hate packing a truck with boxes in dozens of sizes that don’t stack together well. Moving boxes come in only three sizes, plus wardrobe boxes, so movers can fit them in the truck like a Tetris game.

If you have an item that came in a special box you want to keep, pack it in there yourself, then let the movers put it in a larger box. A reputable mover will pack your electronics and fragile lamps well; they don’t need the original box for that.

Furthermore, movers won’t insure against breakage unless they pack the items themselves. That means you assume the risk if you pack it into its original box on your own.

The other big reason people keep boxes is to return high ticket items. Sure, keep them for a month or so, until you decide you want the item. If you would actually ship it back to the manufacturer if it breaks while under warranty, keep it for that length of time too. For decluttering ease, write on the box (or on a removable sticker) the date the warranty expires.

Finally, with items such as electronics, the resale value is usually higher if you can provide the original packaging. If you’re the reselling type, you are probably already familiar with what packaging is worth keeping for which gadget.

One last thing! UPS will often take packing peanuts. Check your local office to confirm.
