Marrying Organizing Styles

As the saying goes, “opposites attract.” It’s the wedding season and many couples combine households with little thought of how many things they each have to bring into one space.  They have the wedding gifts to deal with also.

One person’s organizing style may be that throwing their dirty clothes across a chair is the ideal solution than dropping them on the floor. The other person, of course, uses a practical hamper that sorts clothing by color.  One person thinks an exposed shelving unit in the kitchen to show off all the pretty dishes is fantastic while the other person wants them behind closed doors so that they don’t have to be neat all the time. 

If you are ‘opposites’ and haven’t had a conversation on your organizing style, contact me for a consultation. If you’ve had a conversation on how to purge your households and ‘organizing’ is a dirty word, contact me for a consultation. I’ll help you get through the beginning of your marriage peaceably.

Your lifestyles renewed for joining together!

What’s on sale in June?!

As I was browsing the morning articles on the Internet, one entitled “What’s on sale in June?” caught my eye, so I clicked on the link to read it. The article was tagged ‘frugal’ which is an adjective that I sometimes use to describe myself. Some of the items on sale listed by the writer were sporting equipment, grills and accessories, fruits and veggies and summer clothes.  Being a professional organizer, I started thinking about how we would run out to get some of these great summer bargains just to add more stuff in our homes.

In January, things that are on sale are usually associated with revival, new beginnings, and resolutions such as organizing products, weight lost help products and fresh white sheets. I’d like for you to think about having a June resolution. If you plan on shopping for summer sale items, resolve to get rid of some of the clutter already in your home. Summer is a great time for decluttering. You’ll have lots of space outside to sort your items (if you have a yard or porch).  In my previous blog, I gave  you organizing tips to have a garage sale. You’ll make some money to buy that new grill!

We spend more time in our homes in the winter, and looking at a lot of clutter can add to the feeling of “winter blues.” Taking the time to declutter your home this summer can help your mental health this winter. I’m offering a sale through June 30!

15% off my regular rate for clutter busting for new customers.

Contact me to renew your lifestyle before the winter blues set in.
