Are you in need of some lightness during these dark cold days of winter?

Here are 5 Grace Notes to help bring clarity and lightness into your home~

Grace Notes:

1. Accessorize – it’s what separates us all!home assessories

Be smart about accessories. Accent pillows in a bold color or pattern, a bright-colored or white throw blanket and colorful fixtures will brighten up an otherwise dull room during the winter. For example, the palette of Mauve and Copper is a wonderful way to add lightness & brightness to your home in the winter months.

 

2. Don’t let your Rugs just lay there!

3. Declutter . . . and Discover!

4. Create brightness with Fresh Flowers

Brighten up your living room this winter with a vase of bright flowers and use a colorful arrangement to bring a fresh look to a kitchen or bathroom. Purchase bouquets of store bought flowers and let your light shine through the home!

5. Use Mirrors . . . in the right places!

I hope my Grace Notes brings Reorder ~ Refresh ~ Renew feelings to your home this winter season.

What Do You Think is the Most Asked Question I Get?

clearing out the clutter

The most asked question I get is

                                           “So, how long will it take to get rid of this stuff?”

 

The answer is so different for everyone. Clutter-Clearing is a calling-you-back-process it’s a process that happens when you clear the clutter in your life. As you free the objects you no longer love or use – you call-back to yourself the parts of your spirit and soul that have been loving and using this object in the past, calling-back the attachment to the emotional need and memories of this object – identifying what it is and then Letting Go of the object. It’s an amazing feeling . . . Being center in your life, making productive decisions from this place of power that you have created from Letting Go & Pressing On!

 

You must make a decision . . . what will you do with this object that you no longer love or use. That’s what life is right? Making decisions, when working with me – we work side-by-side with hands-on coaching to come up with decisions. In doing so, you bring yourself powerfully into the present time. When you have made a decision about this object – your energy no longer is scattered in a thousand different directions, unproductive directions, you become more centered and more focused. You feel spiritually complete and more at peace with yourself – all because you’re getting rid of stuff!

 

This happened with me – I resigned my position in 2014 as a Teacher. In my home office closet, there was a tote that I put together right after I resigned – with all my lesson plans, work samples, projects, etc. When I resigned my position as a Teacher – I felt as though I failed! Having that tote in the corner of the closet, I was always looking at it, making up stories in my head that I was a failure as a Teacher and I believe that’s why I kept the tote of stuff – validation right?

 

After coming home one day from an Organizing Session with a client, I said to myself – I need to practice what I preach. So, I took the tote out of the closet when through the stuff, and kept important things like transcripts, letters, certifications, and my ECE Award, anything that had a positive feel to it. I Took the rest of the books and dropped them off at Goodwill. Now, the only objects in my office closet is being used and loved. I have changed my mindset and the verbage I say to myself about my Teaching career. Now, I have a home office and closet with everything positive and useful that gives me that feeling of  . . . Peace of Mind!

 

All this Peace of Mind! feeling comes from simply clearing clutter – it’s life changing! It amazes me every time when I first met a client that won’t even get rid of a piece of paper that the father had on his desk in 1950s, that stuff that keeps them where they don’t grow anymore – kind of a prisoner in their own past. Then while we’re working and coaching together – I start seeing this blossom of a person that isn’t afraid of letting go, isn’t afraid of the new anymore, ready for anything, finding peace within themself and the place they live in. This can happen for you too, after you become comfortable with Letting go, you find that you bring in less and less of objects that have no use or purpose in your life.

What To Do With a Business Concierge

Concierge for Small Business

Businesses sometimes need extra support for specific projects or ongoing tasks without the need for hiring an additional employee. If you don’t want to take on the expense of a full or even part-time assistant, you can still get the help you need . . . just when you need it.

CCHC can serve as a business concierge to assist with:

  • Make phone calls
  • Arrange travel or other bookings
  • Packing / unpacking
  • Provide internet research
  • Complete to-do lists
  • Business clerical tasks (filing, clean up emails and calendars, etc.)
  • . . . And so much more

It’s a cost effective solution to a growing trend of outsourcing your business tasks. Business concierges are playing an important role in today’s business environment by providing cost-saving benefits to both the business and individual. The Business Concierge can perform many of the same services as office-based employees, but without the associated costs such as payroll tax, health insurance, workers compensation, sick and other leave, training, office space (we usually bring our own setup), phone, etc.

By providing a Business Concierge, companies are not only providing a valuable tool for employee satisfaction and retention, but are alleviating the time burden that some business tasks place on the company’s resource.

Something to think about – Offer Business Concierge service to your employees, you will give your staff:

  • Reduced stress levels knowing personal tasks are being handled professionally and confidentially
  • Fewer distractions from work related tasks
  • Increased focus on their work during working hours
  • More quality time to spend on their home and family life

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.
