Okay, so here’s my very fist entry.  Most of what I have been hearing from clients, or just anyone, is they don’t know where to start.  That is in the way of  organizing.  I have many people telling me it just takes too much time and they are too busy.  Well, the key is…never start anything you can’t finish.  So, for example I know my entire home needs reorganizing, but I just don’t have the time.  So, start with a small area.  Figure out first which area of your home needs help the most.  Maybe, it’s your kitchen, so instead of going at it like a maniac and trying to do everything in one day, then becoming overwhelmed and giving up half way through because you just don’t have the time.  Break it down, into small areas.  Do one cupboard.  Finish it and then leave it.  You’ll actually go away with the feeling you accomplished something.  You weren’t overwhelmed and now you still have time to have a long bath with a glass of wine. You might feel energized and proud of your accomplishment that tomorrow, you are ready to tackle the next cupboard.

It’s all about taking it in stride and not stressing yourself over it.

Take care,

    I;ve been trying to get rid of a lot of my things, but I just can’t let go of all the stuff my kids have done

      Well, I do know it’s hard to let go of anything your children have done. I did this just recently. I kept every book, every spelling test, but in the most part they were still sitting in a box that I haven’t even looked at in over 7 years. So, what does that say. My friend told me that she only keeps one most important thing that each of her children did each year. And that makes sense. Take the best things that they were proud of and keep it. Get rid of the other stuff.

      One thing is, they will love to look at their accomplishments, rather than their averages and both of you later enjoy doing it together.

    I recently hired Van-urban to organize my horribly cluttered office and guest room. I honestly didn’t even what the rooms originally looked like, it had been so long since I could see anything in there. The Van-urban team did a sensational job at organizing what I thought was a lost cause. Thank you for your services, I will definitely be in touch.
