Sort Out Sunday: What Are the “What If’s” And How To Kill Them


Many times when I ask a client why they have kept an item or items, the answer starts with “What if”. It doesnt’ matter what the item is, the answer starts out the same: What if I need _______ one day? What if I need ___ just in case? What if I run out of___?

Sometimes it generational. Sometimes its status. Sometimes its anxiety.e

It a fine line between keeping SUPPLIES and hoarding forks and plates. LOL In my opinion you should have supplies/extras of things that WILL be used. SO things like Paper towels and Toilet paper are a yes. Because you continuously use them. Saving things for a what if isnt good. If your underwear drawer can’t close, time to get rid of enough underwear to close the drawer. A package of Christmas themed paper plates are fine because you are going to use them at Christmas!

I heard another organizer say only keep what reflects who you are today! Take the  fear out of it. Fear breeds the saving for what if or just in case.

My Three S’s in Super Organizing

Image result for 3 s's



Spring Cleaning is Coming Up!! Everyday can be Spring Cleaning but if the ritual of this time helps you get started and motivated, I’m all for it!

My Three S’s in being Super Organized are:

  1. Start– start somewhere. Grab help if you need it. Just start the process.
  2. Stay Centered- that should always be a goal during the whole process. Feel the emotions as they happen. Work and walk through them. You want to be able to make the best decisions for you and being centered helps immensely.
  3. See things for what they are – Really look at the clutter, disorganization for what it really is. Take blame out and find a way to live with what has happened already. You can’t change the past. You can change the future.No sense beating yourself up over things.

You Can Get Organized! You Can Get Organized!

Image result for you can get organized

I wanted to start your weekend off on a positive note! To all of you out there who have a messy or disorganized situation, there is hope! You can change your situation.It can be changed. All hope is not lost. It may look like its too much but think of it this way, Its there and it should be taken care of. It’s okay to feel overwhelmed. It’s okay to have some emotions about the situation. It’s okay to not know where and/or how to begin.

There are two things you can do. Go through this blog and read on different techniques on how to start. I give you great tips that have helped me and/or my clients for years. And I give different levels and pacing.

Or you can hire a wonderful Professional Organizer in your area. There are professional organizers who feel called to action and will work with you to start the process. You can contact me and I will lead you in the right direction.

Spring Cleaning is coming up! Let’s get organized!!!

3 Quick Ways To Start DeCluttering




Its a NEW Year! Its a new Month! Its a new DAY!! I believe in you! And this year we are going to have the best life ever!

It takes work to declutter a space, but here are 3 quick ways to get started:

1- Grab a tote bag or basket or box or bin or paper bags. Go to one space and put everything that does not belong there in the bag/basket/etc! The space will be less cluttered and that’s a good start! Take the items and put them where they should be.

2- Go to your underwear drawers and go through them. Throw out all sock and underwear that is ripped/wholly/stained. Afterwards you might be able to consolidate into one drawer or at least make the drawers neater and organized. Or rearrange and put into a smaller space, creating more room!

3- Go to your Fridge! Grab a trashcan and throw out all expired stuff, You might also find you have enough leftovers to make a full meal. Do that! If you have two bottles of the same drink open and there is enough room, you can marry them. Fridges and freezers can become one of the most cluttered spaces. Its the same for families and for single folk.
