Are your “things” taking over your world? Are you buried in so much stuff, you feel that you can’t move or breathe? Are you hesitant to invite people into your home because of the clutter? Are you embarrassed by the mess? Afraid that there would be no comfortable area to sit and converse? Do you wish you could renovate or redecorate, but know it would be pointless unless you clear away the stacks and piles first?
No matter whether your personal clutter demon is clothing, books, furniture, knick-knacks, or just piles of miscellaneous items -- I will teach you how to reorganize your belongings in a way that frees you from frustration and overwhelm. I will help you create a logical home for everything you own, as well as a routine for making sure everything gets back in its proper place. And just like magic, you'll find every aspect of daily life (from meal prep to cleaning, getting dressed to bedtime) easier!
GARAGE/ATTIC/STORAGE UNIT ORGANIZING
Are your storage spaces filled with unidentified boxes of miscellaneous stuff? Do you pay a monthly fee for an off-site unit, with no idea what the heck's even in there? Do you keep piling things into your attic or basement, only to find later on that your belongings have been ruined by heat, bugs, or moisture? Would you like to be able to park your car/bike in a garage that is currently full of clutter?
You don't have to be a slave to your storage any more! I can help you clear out things that no longer serve any purpose in your life -- as well as find creative ways of putting useful items that have ended up hidden away back into service. If you need off-site storage, I will show you how to organize your unit in a way that makes the best possible use of every square inch. Once we've whittled away the excess, you might even find that you can get by with a smaller unit -- or none at all!
CLOSET ORGANIZING AND DESIGN
Are your clothes jammed so tightly into overstuffed closets that you can never find what you're looking for? Are your favorite outfits overflowing onto the bed/chairs/floor? Or left hanging on your exercise equipment? Even worse, have you taken over your spouse’s closet, and he/she is feeling put out?
My job is to create a closet that you love. Together, we will decide the fate of each article -- kept and contained (if it's something you love and that fits), donated/sold/gifted (if it's not). I will revamp your storage so wearables are organized in the most space-efficient and aesthetically-pleasing way possible -- whether that means re-configuring your existing closet components or coordinating the design/installation of a new system. And when I'm done, you'll find yourself getting ready faster each morning -- with less mess and less frustration!
Does a stove covered in paper make cooking a family meal impossible? Is your kitchen storage cluttered with never-used appliances and cookware? Have you forgotten what your countertop looks like underneath all the clutter? Are you tired of the dining room table being covered in laundry instead of food?
You know deep inside that you are a gourmet chef, if only you could get organized -- Rosemary to the rescue! I will create your dream kitchen, with cabinets and drawers and a pantry set up to support your cooking style and best food practices. I'll fashion time-saving systems for grocery shopping and meal prep -- so that you can eat fresh delicious meals that you made yourself, instead of the fast-food take out your clutter has been forcing you to consume!
HOME OFFICE ORGANIZING
Is your home office a space with no definition, no structure, no systems for keeping things in order? Do you feel so overwhelmed at the thought of filing that you just leave all your paper in piles? Do you find yourself neglecting routine administrative tasks because they take too much time and energy? Do you dread tax day, always scrambling to get the necessary info to your CPA at the last possible minute? Would you be able to grab your most important documents and go in case of emergency?
Whether you run a home-based business or are responsible for keeping a busy household on track, I can help you do it more efficiently and effectively. I will determine what type of data storage works best for the information you collect and your filing habits. Then I will design a customized process for keeping ahead of the paper monster on a daily basis. Together we will tackle every aspect of your home office -- from organizing financial paperwork to organizing your calendar, from setting up a functional workspace to finding a better way of storing office supplies. Once I'm done, you'll find yourself getting more done in less time and with less stress!
BEST TIME MANAGEMENT PRACTICES
Do you find yourself missing deadlines? Do your days resemble those of a hamster on the wheel, constantly running yet getting no where? Are you burdened with an endless to do list filled with meaningless minutiae -- the kind where even checking a completed item off leaves you feeling unaccomplished? Are there things you wish you had time to do, yet you don’t know how to fit them into your schedule?
I will help you learn how to prioritize, how to accomplish your goals, how to fit everything that matters into each allotted 24 hour day. I will show you when enough is enough. Most importantly, I will help you reprogram destructive behaviors (like procrastination and perfectionism) that keep you from fully enjoying your life. Not only will you get more done than ever before, you'll end each day feeling more satisfied with your accomplishments.
RESTYLE AND HOME STAGING
Is there something about your home that just does not look right or work right for you? Are you staring at stark white walls and would rather a little warmth to encase you while you relax? Do you wish your home were more inviting? More comfortable? More sophisticated? More homey? Are you trying to sell your home, and need help making it more appealing to buyers?
Let me put my eye for design to work on your behalf. I will revamp your living spaces for greater comfort and enjoyability. I will take the fear out of color choice for you. I will situate the furniture and loved items in an aesthetically-pleasing and functional way. I will help you regain control over your space and stay ahead of those situations that cause clutter, stress and unhappiness. When I walk out the door, you will love your living environment again!
DOWNSIZING YOUR HOME
Are you in a place where you know you need to downsize, but the very thought causes you sleepless nights? Are you worried that won’t have room for those things that you truly love? Does the thought of pairing down seem like a monumentally overwhelming task?
I can take the pain out of cleaning out. I will take into consideration the type of architecture your new home will be and help you decide what you really want to bring with you, from a life time of gathering prized possessions. I will make suggestions and recommendations for style choices, so you can focus on what really matters. Your new adventure of living in a new house, should be a stress free one. I will help facilitate that.
ASSESSMENT AND EXECUTION
I will assess the functionality, degree of clutter and disorganization to come up with a plan to address the solution to this phenomenon -- then you will be given a plan that either I will help you execute or you will implement on your own. Regardless, although I will make recommendations, you will retain all final decision-making authority!
