There is a lot of overlap among my clients because I work with families, small businesses and especially families that run small businesses. That sweet spot, right in the middle of both, is where I'm happiest. If I can teach organizing skills to someone that will help...

It's almost back to school time, which may or may not sound like a big relief to you. But no matter how you feel, the best way to head back to school is by being organized. No worries because you've still got plenty of time to be proactive. So let's talk about setting...

When you undertake a new project, you are creating an exciting new opportunity.  Projects are unique and temporary events which are different from your normal repetitive chores.  Doing the dishes over and over and over (no, sadly it will never end) is a “business as us...

Seasonal changes bring out the best in me.  Everything I've put away for a year comes back out again and somehow it seems fresh and new.  That sweater I was so tired of last winter seems cozy now and I can't wait to break out my boots, too.  I'm ready to put away the s...

I've been living in my new home for 7 months now and I'm surprised at how much organizing I've already done here. Our house is only two years old so you would think there's not much to be done. Uh huh.

When we moved in, I had a plan drawn out on paper because I'm an org...

I'll be the first to admit that 100% follow through on a project is tough.  Sometimes things are out of your control, sometimes you get tired, and sometimes you almost finish but then jump to something else instead.  Since it's January, of course people are still talki...

How many times have you asked your spouse, "When's the last time we....?"  When did you last change that air filter?  How old is the water heater and when was it last drained?  Have you ever cleaned the refrigerator coils since you moved into your home?...
