What do we all want the most?
More rest, more money, better health, peace, creativity, joy?
Whatever it is that we all hope to have in our lives, we need to open our time and clear some space to make room for it.
You are not alone.
We all think our mess is the worst, our schedules are the fullest, our minds are the most burdened, but that's simply not the case. Being overwhelmed is embedded in our culture. We're trained to acquire, consume, and fill all our empty space.
But things and tasks accumulate. Most of us are simply too busy dealing with them to keep up with them.
Time and space are intricately interwoven.
When our time is compromised, we don't deal with our things. As our things build up around us, they clutter our spaces, they limit our range of motion, they slow us down, causing inefficiency and stress, which then compromises our time.
A professional organizer helps you prioritize your time and manage your space so you can focus on the things that really matter.
I work directly with you to discern between the clutter and the keep. We unearth everything and put it into categories and as we work we consider three things: keepability of your things, what to do with what doesn't serve, and how you operate in the space.
I help you see and learn about your habits. And then help you design systems that around them.
Understanding yourself in relationship to your things is the best way to keep lasting order in your life.
Learn how you function and why.
The Process: We take everything out, or we list all the time obligations. Together we assess and decide what goes away, what can be delegated to others. If it’s trash, I help you dispose of it. If it’s recycling. I help you decide how and where to recycle it If it’s to be sold, I help you with all aspects of selling, from pricing to listing to yard sales or finding auctioneers. If it's obligations, I help you delegate them. If there are donations,
I take them wherever you want them to go at no extra cost. I run errands and my handyman, Ian, fixes the broken things.
Though this stage can be the most time consuming, it's most the important. In order to truly know what to pare down, we must regard the whole picture, leaving nothing unseen. And then we take everything away that doesn’t belong.
(I also offer remote clutter control coaching and accountability check in’s if that is the support you need)
Once this is done we put back what you have thoughtfully decided to keep.
In the process of helping you clear your clutter I learn how you want your space to be and how everyone who uses it functions within it.
Then I use that knowledge to help you put it all back in a way that will support your flow.
Then we can go on to design organizational systems.
