It’s potentially a long list, but I’ve narrowed it down to what has affected me and my clients the most.
Read on for what I consider the benefits of having an Organize & Simplify Life, at home and at work.
Less stress. Above anything else, this is the number one reason to burn calories to stay on top of things. Here’s a great example: one of my clients is making a concerted effort to keep their office neat and tidy, the client works from home and the office is in their dining room. We added a bulletin board and have a designated home for everything: inbox, keys, wallet, office supplies, charger cables, and more. Now, when they need something, they know exactly where it is. This fact reduces stress and allows them to …
Relax more. I once saw a plaque at HomeGoods that read, “Organized people are just too lazy to search for stuff.” Yeah, that’s cute, I’m the “lazy” one mentioned in the punchline. Less time spent running around equals more time Just, more time to do what I want to do, like …
Spend time with your family. Getting clean and clear professionally and personally means you’ve got more time to spend with the ones most important to you. For example, my workday ends at 2:00, as I drive home. I know that I’ll be spending the next six hours with my animals, art, and writing until my husband comes home. That’s easy to do when I take care of all my “work stuff” before then.
Be ready for an emergency. I’m sure you know how this goes: life throws a wrench into the works that interrupt your plans in a major way. Being prepared ahead of time lessens the shock. For example, I have designated an “emergency” office and a very -portable setup ready. That way, if my Internet goes down at home, or a renovation crew happens to set up outside my window, I already know where I’m going to go to work and what I need.
The overwhelming seems manageable. I don’t care if you’re talking about work, the kids, or home management, but it’s an awesome feeling to have every project outlined, and every action step that stands between you and your project is completed. When you do this, you’ll be able to look at a daunting to-do list and feel like you’re on top of it and capable of doing what needs to be done.
Improved health. The stress I mentioned earlier, which even I feel when things start to get out of control, does not promote good health. There are numerous studies that demonstrate a link between sustained high levels of stress and a variety of health problems. Read this → Why disorganization causes stress
It’s the little things. Just turning over a single load of clothes per day makes all the difference. Little things like making sure the kids put their jacket and shoes away each day after school improves your family’s ability to easily function with purpose.
Greater productivity. When you know where things are, what your goals are, and take care of the piddly “busy work” as it appears, you’ve got significantly more time and energy for the big goals in life.
An organized life takes some doing, and you’re going to slip up. No one is clean and clear all day, every day! But when you strive to do the best you can, you’ll experience the benefits listed above … and more. May you experience the best of an Organize & Simplify Life.

While we’ve all heard the traditional benefits of being organized, such as its ability to help up feel more productive or clarity. Now we can see there are a few bona fide health benefits as well. With this in mind, I’m off to organize my closet, and I hope you’ll be doing the same, too!

We forget to do this so often – we Pray for others and forget to Pray for ourselves and thank your God or Goddess for all you have. I reflected on this morning about having ENOUGH. I have enough – to live my life, to make me happy, to make others happy – I have enough . . . and I am ENOUGH.

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.

Peel shrimp. Make a shallow cut lengthwise down back of each shrimp; wash out vein.
In 12-inch skillet or 4-quart Dutch oven, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add onion; cook, stirring frequently, until tender. Reduce heat to medium. Add shrimp; cook uncovered about 8 minutes, turning once, until shrimp are pink. Remove shrimp from skillet; keep warm.
Add champagne to onion in skillet; cook until liquid has evaporated. Stir in rice. Cook uncovered over medium heat about 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until edges of rice kernels are translucent. In 4-cup glass measuring cup, mix chicken broth and clam juice; pour 1/2 cup mixture over rice. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until liquid is absorbed. Repeat with remaining broth mixture, 1/2 cup at a time, until rice is tender and creamy.
About 5 minutes before risotto is done, stir in shrimp, arugula, cheese and pepper. Sprinkle with parsley before serving.
Even though you may be tempted, don’t rush the process! When making risotto, adding the broth a little at a time ensures that the dish will be creamy while allowing the grains to remain separate.Leave out the shrimp and serve this as a lovely main course for your vegetarian friends.
