Class This Saturday: Creating Sacred Space

What would it be like to feel fully supported in your home or office space? Everything in your home has an energetic affect on you whether you want it to or not, but it’s not enough to just clear the clutter. Creating sacred space is an activity done with focused intention. What you put back in the space after you’ve done your clutter clearing is just as important. Creating sacred space is about claiming your

Boost Your Productivity With Evernote and Dropbox

Two popular productivity tools on the market today are Evernote and Dropbox. I’ve previously written about how much I love Evernote over on Organize to Revitalize, and later this month look for my post over there with more detailed information about Dropbox.

Managing Transitions from Chaos To Creation

I saw this image posted on Facebook a few days ago and was happy to realize that this is exactly what my class Managing Transitions from Chaos To Creation is all about. Here’s the thing – your home didn’t get cluttered overnight, it’s not going to get decluttered overnight either (despite what Hollywood and some of your typical home organizing or remodeling TV shows might lead you to believe). So how do you manage all

Start On Your Taxes Now, Save Time Later

A new year, a new round of paper work to file and organize. January is a great time to get started on collecting all your tax information and purging the old paperwork you no longer need. This weekend I was able to recycle this huge stack of paper from my business files. I am on a mission to go paperless in my business, not only to free up space in my office, but also to

Sing It Again for the Annual Review

I’m on a mini sabbatical. While I’m away, please enjoy this post on annual reviews previously published on this blog: For the past few years I have opted to not make any New Year’s resolutions.  This isn’t because there’s not anything I want to do in the new year,  I just take a different approach. I first started an Annual Review process, both for my business and my personal life, in December 2010.  It has been

Are Political Robo Calls Clutter in Your Life?

The first time I received a political robo call several years ago I was absolutely irritated – like I wasn’t already bombarded enough by political propaganda. I was fed up, so I hopped on the internet, did a search and almost immediately discovered there IS indeed a way to stop the harassment – The National Political Do Not Call Registry. Their Mission: “The National Political Do Not Contact Registry is a program of Citizens for Civil Discourse

Secondly, I know exactly how you feel! Since I run two businesses,

Reclaiming The Desk After Child #3

I worked with a client who was ready to tackle his desk area. He told me he wasn’t sure how long it had been since he’d seen the desk clear. The desk was covered with mostly paperwork and some kids’ toys. We dove into the sorting, creating areas for the different types of paperwork: a pile for each one of the three kids’ artwork, a pile that needed to be filed, a pile of financial paperwork
