Did you know: Getting rid of clutter eliminates 40% of housework in an average home, and 80% of the clutter is a result of disorganization, not the lack of space. (Statistics courtesy of napo.net)
Meet Judith Ann Kirk, proponent of Life Management Skills and owner of Organizing Resources since 1994
It is my mission to connect with individuals struggling with chaos, clutter and confusion and guide them to order, serenity and a peaceful haven with more time, more money, more energy, more breathing room and less stress.
Thank you for visiting my website. I know you have many opportunities to obtain information regarding a simpler life and an organized environment, yet I am honored you stopped in for a visit. We all have choices. I believe in choosing wisely.
WHY I started my organizing business and WHY I am eager to help you.
- I believe that the power to get and stay organized is within your grasp — one-small-step-at-a-time.
- I believe it is possible to have a bit of breathing space everywhere — the stuff you surround yourself with, the people you socialize with, the commitments you make, the files in your computer and file drawers, and everywhere you find yourself trapped by the way-too-much syndrome.
- I believe in having enough – not too much, not to little, but enough.
- I believe in having what you need and needing what you have.
- I believe life balance is possible.
- I believe you hold the answers deep within yourself.
Help is available; all you need to do is ask.
Searching for help in finding solutions that work for you?
My clients seek personal solutions to tackle their overabundance whether it be paper, digital, possessions, commitments or spatial arrangements. It is always a delight when a client says, “Hey, I was looking for that!” or “Gee, I can’t even remember why I kept this!”
True or False: A Professional Organizer is going to make you throw your stuff away.
FALSE ~ It is your stuff and you get to make the decisions. But along the way, I will ask a lot of questions to get you thinking about achieving your goal of organization. I know, you have all the answers deep inside of you; it just takes a bit of pull to retrieve them.
Who owns this?
What is its purpose in your life?
Where is its home?
When will you use it?
Why do you want to keep it?
How will it add joy, pleasure and beauty to your life?
Are you trying to eliminate clutter and chaos in your life?

When did Organizing Resources begin?
I began my professional organizing career in 1994 and joined the National Association of Professional Organizers, currently called the National Association of Productivity & Organizing Professionals (NAPO.net).
I am the founder of the Connecticut Organizers Informal Group in 1995 which became an official NAPO chapter in 2003 (NAPO-CT). Over the years I held multiple chapter leadership positions, and on the national level I served on the Membership Committee, Continuing Education Committee, Programming Committee and National Golden Circle Chair. (Golden Circle is a distinguished group of organizers with many years of experience.)
What do I do now?
Since taking Emeritus status with NAPO, I limit my hands-on organizing work to select clients yet continue as an Organizer Coach and Mentor to offer my knowledge in life management skills. CLICK HERE to learn more about working with an organizer coach?
My business focus is all about YOU, the real life issues you face and the decisions you make. Good decision-making starts with knowing what you truly value, gathering the facts, understanding the consequences and having the confidence to choose wisely. Together we will tackle the issues. We will even talk about being a conscientious consumer in a world of Madison Avenue advertising, multiple credit cards, and easy access to Amazon.
Organizing Resources is not a ‘we’ company. There is no team or associates. When you call, you speak to me, Judith Ann Kirk, Professional Organizer / Productivity Coach. If we decide to work together, it is me that you get, not an intern or a newbie.
What do you get? You get my 25 years experience in the organizing industry coupled with years in the corporate world as a Business Administrator and Certified Healthcare Administrator. The impetus to start my business was the insight that not one organizing system works for everyone. Each person is unique with unique situations requiring unique solutions. There are a multitude of filing systems, a variety of ways to organize your closets, and an assortment of calendars and tools for managing time. I’ll help you find the solution that works for you.
What are the benefits for you?
This is an investment in yourself where you achieve a life-long payout — to become who you really want to be, to do what you really want to do. Each step along the way, each decision you make now, establishes a positive direction you can follow for a lifetime of enjoyment with more time, more space, more energy, more money… and less stress.
How will we accomplish this transformation?
Through telephone calls, FaceTime, Skype, email communications, and if possible, face-to-face. We work together as partners brainstorming solutions to your pressing life management needs and establishing step-by-step tasks that will continually move you forward with knowledge of organizing techniques and life management skills.
What should you do?

My mantra: Simplify your life, organize your environment to lighten the load!
Why do I do this?
Over the years I learned that being a lifelong student opens doors of possibilities. I wish to open those doors for you.
Words of advice: Never stop learning and always carry pen and paper for moments of inspiration.
Let’s connect over a cup of coffee either virtually or face-to-face.
Judith Ann Kirk, Professional Organizer / Coach

But if you do nothing, there will be no result.
