Does this sound familiar?
You’re overwhelmed with stuff and not sure how to pare it down.
Your brain is jam packed with so many potential organizing projects that you get frustrated trying to figure out where to start, much less how to finish any of them.
The idea of making a list stresses you out – that works for other people, not for you.
You are mad at your family for all their clutter, and secretly resent having to deal with their mess.
You feel like you that getting organized is a hopeless problem with no solution.
Get Rid of the Clutter
I know you wish you could hire someone to come in and get rid of all of this stuff for you. That’s an awesome dream and many organizers are willing to do that for a hefty price tag.
But guess what? If you don’t figure out what’s behind the clutter, learn how to manage it for yourself, and put an organizational plan into place, then it WILL return and with a vengeance.
Clutter and disorganization don’t define you!
Rather these are symptoms of things going on that may not even be in your control. We’ve all been there and understand that life has become overwhelming. You may be asking, “How did this happen? I thought I had a handle on my life, my work, my family, and our ‘stuff’, but something changed without me knowing it”.
You have lost your organizing groove and I can help you get it back.
Getting organized isn’t a one shot deal!
Getting and staying organized is a ongoing and ever changing endeavor and that makes it so frustrating.
Think of it as a journey. The trick is to do one step at a time so that you don’t get overwhelmed.
One of the biggest complaints we hear from clients is “ I used to be organized, but then I had kids, got a new job, moved into a new house, or had some other type of life change that derailed my organizing mojo.” Life happens and I can help you evaluate what organizing methods are working and what’s not.
You want real change to happen, and that has to come from within. This holds true for many things in life, but is especially true as it relates to getting and staying organized. But how can you do that?
We teach you the secrets that the professionals use with their clients, but for, YOU, the Do it yourself. Learn to Get Organized like a Professional while you organize a junk drawer right along with me!
You Value the experience and knowledge that professionals bring to any given field. Professionals who are classically and professionally trained are a great source for help. You want that type of knowledge that you can use to complete your organizing projects.
Since 2015, we have served as a premier online organizing resource for DIY’ers, just like you, who are trying to get and stay organized.

This is a journey and we are in it for the long haul, here to serve as your cheerleader and clutter coach all along the way.
Traditionally, Do-It-Yourself has meant amateurish methods and learning through mistakes. Not anymore! We are going pro baby! We will teach you the organizing methods and techniques that professional organizers use with their clients. The secret sauce, if you will.
How would it feel?
To be motivated, energized, and excited to start your day? What could you do if you have a few extra minutes in your day to use for YOU, rather than spending it sorting through the same old clutter day after day?
I realize you are short on time and are lacking a big budget to hire someone to “do it for you”, but there is another option. With a little training, you can do it yourself.
The term DIY (Do It Yourself) is attractive to many, because it’s a way to improve your situation with a minimum investment of either time, money, or both. That’s what I personally like about DIY projects. If you don’t have time to hire someone and really don’t want them to come into your home and see the real you (mess and all), then a DIY method for getting organizing may be just what you need.
