I Help Make Decisions ~

I have clients ask me “do you ever see the mess, dirt and trash when you go into people’s cluttered homes?” I always reply with “Nope, I just see a whole lot of decisions not made.” The reasons people continue to have a relationship with their clutter is many. In the last 25 years of organizing homes and offices, I found that many times people just don’t know what to do with their stuff. I have seen some great “Start & Stop” processes in my coaching, you know where someone did take the time to organize all the mail sitting in a mound on the far end of the kitchen counter. But, then it becomes overwhelming and doing nothing seems more reasonable then deciding on the right place to put something. You just need to make a decision . . . right or wrong it doesn’t matter.

You know you have this person in your circle of family & friends – don’t lie!

The ones that has that cookie tin in their hands, the tin with the really cute picture of a kitten and snowman looking adorable. They are thinking maybe someone in the family can use it? Maybe they will use it next Christmas. They walk it around the house trying to find that perfect home for it, taking it and fitting it in the bookcase – damn it’s just a little too wide. Then, they try to put it on a table, it doesn’t look right with the Spring decor. Then they see a spot, they pick up speed as they dash across the room to the same exact freakin’ spot they took it from. So, now we know where the new home is – It’s called “Indecision Island” where all the misfits of the clutter end up, it’s really called the kitchen table!

Getting There

Make decisions in small, daily steps to clean and organize a space. Pick a small space like the kitchen table or one kitchen counter, keep consistent with daily small organizing tasks. One tool I have used with my clients is once the space is organized, clean it – make it sparkle. That small task will give you a sense of accomplishment and boost your mental health.

Make a Decision Today, Don’t be the person carrying the cookie tin around the house!

How To Chi in Some Energy With Feng Shui . . .

I have been studying Feng Shui  lately – I would like to add this service to my Home & Office Concierge Service. I suffer from depression, I am looking for a more holistic way to treat it and I read an article in a wellness center over the summer about how Feng Shui has been found to help with people suffering from depression . . . I was intrigued.

Cleaning and Organizing for people in their homes and offices for over 20 years, I do understand the concept of placement – and in other blogs I have written about how a home, office, and/or space has its own “heartbeat”. So, I am beginning to understand placement along with symbols to energize an area. I’m getting there!

If you would like to work with me in this very infantile stage of my learning the powers of Feng Shui – please reach out to me (860)961.6824 (leave me a message that you’re interested in FENG SHUI and I’ll get back to you), we can learn together – it will be very affordable to start out at this stage of the process in  developing an outline for this service.

*Side Note – I chose this video not only because Nancy is simple in her explanation of the process – but I love Olivia Newton-John . . . Who doesn’t right? Enjoy . . . . . . . .

  1. Cleaning done on the schedule you want – Hiring a professional cleaning service allow YOU to set the schedule you want to have the home cleaned on a consistent basis. No more of waiting to “get around” to doing those chores yourself.
  2. Professional cleaners have the experience to do the cleaning Right – One of the biggest benefits of having a professional cleaning service caring for your home is their ability to use the best products and techniques to get the job done right. You will not have to purchase a wide range of products that may or may not do a good job. Professional cleaning services know what works and will provide the appropriate products for your home’s needs.
  3. More time to do what matters most to you – If you want more time to spend with family, having a professional cleaning service for your home will allow you to enjoy experiences and make new memories. If you want a little time for your own pursuits, having a professional cleaning service will free up the time you need to spend on hobbies, classes, educational pursuits or volunteering.
  4. Less fatigue – If you are like most families today, keeping up with the demands of work, children, and your adult parents you are exhausted. A professional cleaning service will allow you to get a little more rest so you can enjoy your time off with family and friends, instead of spending your energy on cleaning the home.
  5. Consistent results – Professional Home Cleaners will ensure that your home is sparkling clean, week after week, regardless of the other events that are going on in your life. Your home will be cleaned consistently and will be ready for company, unscheduled guests or those other spur-of-the-moment events and activities, regardless of how busy the rest of your life is.
  6. Healthy home – A professional cleaning service can help alleviate allergies, do you know that 50% of the population in America have some various type of allergies? allergies to dust is the most common allergy.

Consider the many benefits of having a professional cleaning service, and you will soon see why so many people now contract their home cleaning tasks to others, so they can spend more time and energy on more enjoyable activities.

Why Hire a Pro Organizer to Stage Your Home?

Stage Home 2

If you’re planning on selling your home, you need to make sure it’s decluttered to appeal to the prospective buyers – a professional organizer can help with home staging. If you’re moving into a new home, downsizing the home, or even combining homes, it’s not worth it to pack up more stuff than you have to.

After you’ve gone through your belonging with a professional organizer, you can have a garage sale which the PO can help plan, setup, be there the day of sale, and take care of what is left from the garage sale by donation, goodwill or some other charity. It’s a great way to make some extra money. If the majority of your items are high-end items, you might consider selling them online for a nice profit with the help of a professional organizer.
