process_pHow do you get organized?

Organizing starts by identifying your organizing goals. What do you want to accomplish? How do you want to use the space? What are the issues causing clutter, chaos or dysfunction? Heather will work with you to determine the best use of the resources available: space, time and money.

Heather normally organizes in three-hour sessions, working one-on-one with her clients to keep them focused and motivated. After three hours, many people become much less efficient in their decision-making and begin to get overwhelmed. Very few people have the energy and the focus to spend an entire day organizing, but if it is needed, full day organizing is available.

Buying the right bins, boxes or baskets won’t make you organized. Finding the exact container to function well for your particular space, comes after you have sorted through your stuff and decided what to keep and where to keep it. Quite often the work of sorting and purging turns up enough bins and containers to keep the process going.

  • To truly organize a space you must completely finish the process.
  • Empty an entire space during the sorting and purging step.
  • Buy the appropriate containers (once that has been determined).
  • Install shelving or furniture (if needed).
  • Label, Label, Label!
  • Remove all the trash or donations.
  • Maintain the space.

Using her experience, resources, tips and tricks, Heather will create simple systems to meet your organizing needs and help you create a FUNctional Home.
