Many people tend to dread decluttering and getting organized, even if their stuff is giving them grief. I get it. It can be overwhelming for many. And, whatever the job may be, it’s work—physical and emotional. I regularly get asked, “You do this every day?” My response, “Pretty much, and I love it.”
With summer days dwindling, I feel my FOMO (Fear of Missing Out) full force. I’m craving more time for summer adventures. I think we can all agree that being a grown-up gets in the way of fun-time. Being a business owner, mother, homeowner, etc., carries a lot of weight. But what about all that other stuff that isn’t all that important but still manages to get in the way?
It’s that time of year again – and people are eager to get their paws on your possessions. Are you ready to purge and make some money doing it?
I regularly hear, “I don’t want to keep it, but I don’t know what to do with it.” Beneath this is a whole lot of guilt in letting go of unnecessary and dated items for fear of ending up in a landfill. I love that my clients care – and get excited when I can reassure them that I can find an outlet for their clutter.
I’m a firm believer that everything carries energy, including our stuff. The energy our possessions carry can be positive, negative, and/or stagnant. This is especially heightened if the item has sentimental value.
The holidays are finally over – now it’s time to focus on you! You may be overwhelmed just thinking about the added stress of having yet another New Year’s resolution. But have you ever thought about how getting organized can help you simplify and meet your goals this year?
When working with families, parents regularly ask me how they can teach their children to willfully get rid of stuff. This is typically followed by guilty admissions of purging toys on the sly. Out of sight, out of mind – right? Don’t worry, no judgment– we’ve ALL been there!
Michigan’s shifts in season are incredibly unpredictable and while I’m not quite ready to store away my swimsuit and sandals, the weather has demanded I frantically pull out some of my fall/winter wardrobe.
Let’s talk about the endless papers that make their way from our kids’ backpacks to every nook and cranny of our living space. It’s difficult to relax with stacks of school papers surrounding us and constantly reminding us of our “to-do’s.”
