After the holidays…declutter your decorations!

Now that the holidays are behind us, let’s talk about your holiday decor! While I’m personally not a big fan of decorating for the holidays, a lot of my clients are and I’ve done my share of organizing ornaments, spray foamed trees, wreaths, wrapping paper & bows, angels, garland, and lights. Don’t even get me […]

Follow through…part way is just not enough

I recently got a facebook message from my cousin asking if I’d mailed a check for something I had purchased from her shop when we were visiting out of town. I said, of course I had mailed it! I mean, I’m organized. I remember writing the check and setting it in the ‘to be mailed’ […]

Flowers & ferns: Grab your buyers attention when selling!

I can’t stress enough how much a great first impression impacts your odds of selling your home. I always recommend things like painting the front door, pressure washing away the grime, replacing door hardware & exterior lights, and putting out a fresh welcome mat. But one thing that is often overlooked is the appeal of […]

Guest Post for The Clutter Princess: When Organizing & Staging Collide

The Clutter Princess, asked me to write a guest post about staging but since we are both Professional Organizers I thought it would be great to show how the two professions align so nicely. Luckily she agreed and my guest post went live today on her blog, The Clutter Princess. Staging a […]

bins can hide a multitude of sins…

I was having a really nice conversation with Chad Hunter today about professional organizing (he’s a graphic designer but wants to know more about my field – which I can totally understand because everyone does). During our chat, I used the phrase “bins can hide a multitude of sins.” I love the way this flows. […]

Got $20 in my pocket…getting organized for thrift or consignment shopping.

Recently I attended the NAPO National Conference which was pretty awesome. But one thing threw me off: business casual clothing. It’s not really my thing. But being on the Conference Committee, I kind of needed to up my wardrobe game in that department. I love clothes and shoes but didn’t really have enough to pull […]

Going Paperless in the Kitchen…Guest Post on Faithful Provisions

My last post about going green mentioned going paperless in the kitchen. There are some simple steps you can take to do this yourself. Our household hasn’t bought paper towels in over 8 months. Saved us a bunch of money, and it really wasn’t that hard to do. One of my favorite websites for frugal […]

Going green & getting organized with Chico Bags

ChicoBag Reusable Shopping Bags have been a long time favorite of mine. I’ve been using them for years to grocery shop, go to the farmers market, picnics, etc. I often get asked about them so I thought I’d do a post I could direct people to. What I love about them is: they are practically […]

It’s a new school year…do you know where your papers are?

[ 3 ] August 22, 2012 |

Now that a new school year is upon us, I get calls from parents panicking over dealing with the massive influx of papers coming home from school. What to keep, where to keep it, and how to manage it all so it doesn’t become overwhelming. Being both a parent and a Professional Organizer, have I […]
