Tips from a Professional Organizer are simply common-sense solutions– Life Management Skills — to everyday problems. The majority of my clients experience stress over paper clutter, lack of time and over-crowded spaces. However, it is not the paper, nor the possessions, nor the schedule that is the problem. It is the daily habits individuals carry along with them, both good and bad.

Getting organized is about changing behaviors and making wise choices — all Life Management Skills. There is always a choice. When something arrives, you choose what to do with it and how you will care for it. When someone asks you to do something, you choose whether it easily fits into your schedule. When you hold a possession in your hand, your choose whether it brings you joy and pleasure or simply taking up precious space.
