Monday morning, my Facebook feed was filled with proud parents as their children started their first day of school. By 2pm, those enthusiastic statuses looked a little uglier, grimmer, and much more stress filled. A new school year involves lots of moving parts, but what are some of the ways you and your family can make back-to-school an organized…Continue

Getting started is one of the toughest parts of getting organized. I want to give you a few tips and techniques that will help you with this process. I suggest that you ruminate over this part of the process for a little while before you start ripping open the closet doors and tossing things onto the bed. Stop and think about WHY you want to get organized. The answer isn’t that you want a clean closet or a great looking entry way. The answer lies a bit deeper. Do you want to get out of the…Continue

I recently had a discussion with some of my family about the boundaries I set for myself in terms of what I keep. I have one bookshelf in my living area and it is divided up into sections; organizing books, business books, social media books, travel books, hiking guides, and of course, fiction books to keep and some are in a “to read” section.
I’ve been reading a lot and while I borrow a lot of books from the library, it means that my book shelf recently runneth over. Instead of…Continue

I spent the morning with one of my "star" clients yesterday. What makes her a star? She gets it. She gets delegation.
We worked on organizing a list of everything she could delegate.
Like what chores she could put in place for her kids.
Like what responsibilities she could outsource including cleaning her house or getting her lawn done.
Like what her husband could help out with on a weekly basis.

Couldn't even think about engaging in a conversation until I had my morning dose of caffeine.
But I'm patting myself on the back as it's been one month since I've given it up. No more sumatra blends, fresh roast or mocha java.

I don’t know about you but my work space can get pretty messy! I usually have a pacifier, an old coffee mug, business cards everywhere, and a sippy cup or two surrounding my computer where I work. How can I get work done if my space is a disaster? I am not the most organized person, but if there is a lot of clutter around me I can’t seem to focus to get my work done. Does anyone feel my pain??
During the limited time I…Continue

Years ago I kept a day planner. One of those fancy loose-leaf books with a calendar, to do list, planning sheets and a section for contacts. I liked my day planner. Each morning I would review my calendar and to do list to see what was going on that day. Each afternoon I would carefully move items from one day to another according to the day's events. At the end of each year, I travelled to the planning store and looked at the planning and calendar pages and carefully chose the appropriate…Continue

One of the joys of, well, all of my pregnancies is that I organize and re-organize everything. Tell me you’re the same way, yes? During my last ‘nesting session’, I hit the toy room, purged lots of toys and re-organized everything. My head was spinning with options as to what to do with all of their toys and…Continue

Organizing your home can be a challenge, but well worth the effort. Organizing can keep your space free from clutter and mess. When everything has a home it won’t collect on the countertops and dressers or in the corner. To have an organized home is to have a clean home. It is simple and easy to keep it clean once you organize.
Storage containers are key to organizing. After all, where are you going to put all those items you need to keep…
