We LOVE... Being Organized!
It is February 2021, and of all the things, people, and places I love in this world, I truly love to help others get organized. I invite you now to see your vision in a new light. Do you really need all the stuff that is sitting in your house, garage, office, or other precious space? Or are you tired of it and want to see it go away?
Stop depriving yourself (and maybe your loved ones) of the opportunity to enjoy your space! The most common statement from clients when trying to edit & purge what they no longer need is "I better keep it in case I need it one day". or "I'd hate to have to go out & buy a new one".
Remember that vision you have? It's all in the perception. Instead of asking yourself "What if I throw something out that I need later", ask yourself "What if I keep a whole bunch of stuff that I never end up using?"
You might be adding more value to your life, family, and loved ones by giving them the gift of a clutter free space.
Happy 4th of July 2020!

Are you looking for some handy tips to keep your backyard, patio, or garage organized this summer? When was the last time you cleared out the garage or outdoor storage space? If it has been a while, fear not & give it a go now.
Start by creating designated zones. It is easy for outdoor spaces to be taken over by everyone's stuff. Assign separate areas for gardening, children's toys, BBQ, dining, gadgets, etc. Each area does not have to be big... if has to function and make you smile.
Next, assign a home for everything so there is appropriate storage space when not being used. If you have more stuff than space, ask yourself what you really need. Discard or donate what you don't need. Enjoy your surroundings in your outdoor space. Smile.
If you are looking for some help because all of this is easier said than done, An Organized Project can help you! Virtually or in person, we are here for you.
True, we are confined to our homes and many of us are not able to work. Yes, this is leading to concerning financial hardships. However, this is also bringing changes, new ways of conducting business, and in many ways is a time of growth.
There is a lot that we have no control over, however as each day emerges, one thing has stuck in my mind through this ordeal... We are very fortunate.
All of us who are practicing social distancing and have imposed a lockdown on ourselves must appreciate how privileged we are. We have a home to be confined to. We have running water, hot water, cleaning supplies, power, internet, telephone, & washing machines.
The health & safety of our friends, families, acquaintances, clients, and organizer communities are very important to us. Even though we can not organize together in person right now, we would still love the opportunity to work together. Please Call, Text, Email, Zoom chat ... whatever will help you the most during this time, we are here for you!
