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.

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

Self Care, Reflection, and Planning

The business of professional organizing can be a bit like a roller coaster – sometimes you have tons of work, sometimes you have none. Wherever you happen to fall, take advantage of it. Make the money when you can, enjoy the downtime and rest when you can is my motto. I am coming to the end of what has been a particularly busy season of working with clients. What I’ve begun to realize these past

Favorite Products for Organizing the Fridge

Today I’m focusing on two products I use in my fridge that have helped our household stay organized. First off I’m a big fan of Tupperware, and I mean the real thing, not just “any plastic container” that people sometimes mean when they say “Tupperware”. Although I’m not longer a consultant, I’m still a huge fan and user of Tupperware and I am positive their products have saved me money and hassle when it’s come

Insider Tips with Kombucha Mama Hannah Crum

I am so excited to kick off my Insider Tips series with a dear old friend of mine, Hannah Crum, the Kombucha Mama and brewer extraordinaire. Hannah and I met years ago when we were both in college, purple hair was all the rage, and loud booming electronic music in strange locations was a normal part of our weekends. We’ve since both grown up, ditched the purple hair (for now anyway), and Hannah moved out
