Each organizer’s style is unique. It’s important to find someone who you click well with. Here’s the method to my madness:

1. Imagine your goals. Why do you want to get organized? Let’s meet one-on-one, in person or virtually, to flesh out what you’d like to accomplish and how Clearing Space can help. This is a great opportunity to ensure we’re comfortable together and start to solidify a plan for your space.

2. Assess what you have, what you want, and what you need for that particular space. This is a sticking point for many. Trying to organize everything at once is overwhelming. Let’s work together to break it down into bite-size chunks and make it clear and simple as we work through sorting your belongings.

3. Work out where your things will live. Everything needs a home, whether that’s in your house or elsewhere. We’ll designate what to Keep, Toss, Donate, or Sell. Once complete, we can decide where everything that you’ve decided to keep should be housed in your space based on how you live. This is where we’ll decide if we’ll need to purchase any specific containers.

4. Put the plan into action and make your space YOURS! 

But there’s no time!

But there’s no time!
According to the American Demographics Society, Americans waste 9 million hours per day searching for misplaced items. By tidying your space, we can prevent these problems.
I am efficient. Let’s do it ONCE and make it effective. Let my brain do the work!

But I don’t even know where to start!

Luckily, I do!
This feeling of overwhelm is SO common. I promise to make this painless and efficient (it’s my specialty.) Let’s start small and work together to tackle the problem areas together.

I’ve organized before. I always relapse.

The reasons for relapse are known. Many times it’s because the organization style isn’t truly yours. My plan is to work myself out of a job as quickly as possible. My brain LOVES finding new ways to organize for my clients! I work with YOUR brain and YOUR needs to make a plan that works for YOU.

But I don’t want to throw out my stuff!

Organizing and tidying need not necessarily equate to throwing items away. There are lots of good reasons to hold on to items.
Bottom line, I want you to feel good about your space. You choose what to keep and what to toss.
