Creating Organization Based on Your Organizing Style

Uncategorized Mar 01, 2024

Maybe you’ve tried to figure out why you struggle with organization? Have you wondered why you just can’t maintain your organizing system? This is all based on your organizing style and your organizing system. They may not be compatible.

If you’ve wondered why it is easier for some people to be organized than others, read on.

It really comes down to how your brain works. I won’t get into the science of this but I do want to help you know why you are or are not organized. 

There are two hemispheres of the brain and many of us are dominant in one hemisphere over the other. This means we utilize the one hemisphere predominantly over the opposite hemisphere. Balanced living actually utilizes both parts of the brain equally. 

See which one resonates more with you:

  1. Left brain dominant
    • Analyzes - Disciplined -Structured
    • Punctual -Processes through words
    • Detail oriented -Logical
  2. Right brain dominant
    • Artistic -Driven by senses...

Beginning Declutter Strategies

Uncategorized Feb 19, 2024

It’s hard to know where to start organize when you are overwhelmed. This is definitely an area that is not taught in school. Many of us do not have parents that modeled this behavior for us either. So how do we begin?

  1. Pick one area or room. It’s ambitious to say the whole house is disorganized and that is what you want to conquer. The best way to ensure success is to pick one room or space at a time. I would suggest this space is now your “why”. Why do you want to declutter and get organized? This could be a kitchen counter or the entire kitchen. The choice is yours. 
  2. Take a “before” picture. It will feel uncomfortable or even embarrassing. At the end of the session, it’s good to see how much you accomplished.
  3. Remove obvious trash from the area. This makes things look much better! Sounds simple but it can have a big impact on a room. 
  4. Empty the area if you have the space to temporarily store the items removed. This can get pretty...

Simple Accessories Can Bring Success To Start Your Organizing Journey

Uncategorized Jan 25, 2024

My organizing journey began with small projects that took no more than 15 minutes. Now, I love to organize! However, I know that the organizing system and accessories have to be simple or I am less likely to maintain it. Maybe you can relate? This blog takes you back to my beginning. I have found that most of the time it’s the little things in life that make the most difference. My hope is to inspire you to start your organizing journey today.

The very first area that I organized was my kitchen island because it had become piled high with paper. This was the drop zone for the mail and anything the kids brought home from school. I cannot even begin to tell you what this looked like, maybe you have a space like this so you know what I am talking about? Maybe this type of clutter is...

Take the 15 Minute Challenge to Get Organized

Uncategorized Jan 15, 2024


Challenges are really motivating. There is something about them that gets the adrenaline pumping! So, I am challenging you to jumpstart your organizing with five small projects done over five days. Are you up for it? I know you are. Remember, you are only competing with yourself unless you challenge a friend by sharing this blog. 

Here are the Steps to Being Successful in This Challenge:

  1. Pick 5 days to set aside 15 minutes and put it on your calendar (paper or phone). You are NOT available to anyone during this time. If you have to get a babysitter, do it. NOTE: If you need to do five weekends in a row, that would work too. I don’t want you to lose your momentum so the preferred way is to get in five sessions in one week. 
  2. Identify which five spaces you going to organize, think small! Don’t discount the power of small projects, they are powerful in terms of accomplishment. Your brain doesn’t know if you completed a small project or...

Four Ways You Can Ring in the New Year More Organized

Uncategorized Jan 04, 2024

As this year is fast coming to an end, it’s a great time to think of how next year can be better, more organized. Reflect on what went well this year and what could be better. This is useful in all areas of life. As I say all the time, let’s keep it simple!

Answer This Question to Declutter Your Closet

Uncategorized Dec 07, 2023

 What Does Your Personal Style Say to Others?

By taking the time to answer this question you could save a ton of money because you  would purchase only the items that are truly you.  Here are a couple of other questions I’d like you to ponder. Think about your last purchase, have you worn it yet? Where did you buy it, online or in person? What led you to make the purchase? If trendy isn’t working for you, read on. 

Personal style is the way a person expresses themselves. This can be in your house decor, music, art, travel, hair, makeup or fashion. Your style should come from a place of knowing yourself. Trends are nice to look at and fun to try but most of us have closets filled with clothing we aren’t wearing. The most common reason I hear from organizing clients is that it just didn’t look right when they got it home. More than likely this is due to wearing  “store blinders” . The blinders are the ones that show the...

Creating An Organized Kitchen

Uncategorized Nov 13, 2023

An organized kitchen makes everyday life easier and efficient. It’s easy to lose perspective in the kitchen no matter what size. Here are three thoughts that you can use to have the organized kitchen perfect for you. My next blog will be kitchen themed too, as this is a pretty common area of clutter and disorganization.

  1. Assess: Get a look at the lay of the land. This will be the deciding factor in what organizing systems you can use and how many items you can accommodate.
    • How much space you have to work with in cabinets? Countertop?
      • You may want to take “before” photos and then clear out the space to see with fresh eyes
  2. Create Zones: Walk the space as you use it. What do you like about it? What don’t you like?
    • Take the time to figure out what you would like to have in close proximity to the appliances. This is really a good place to start. Sounds simple? Honestly, this is what makes the kitchen functional for you. In turn, your kitchen...

5 Tips on Discipline to Live Organized

Uncategorized Oct 18, 2023

One of the comments I get is, “I bet your house is very organized.” I’d be lying if I said, “yes.” Truth be told, life gets crazy and busy at my house too. What I can say is discipline is what has made a huge impact in my quest to live organized.

What is discipline? According to Google, it is the practice of training people or an activity that provides mental or physical training.

Discipline is an action that takes practice to achieve a desired outcome. (That is my thought on discipline!)

Here are 5 disciplined actions to help you live organized:

  1. Make your bed. Did you know that making your bed each morning is living organized? It actually makes your bedroom look less cluttered and put together. This gives you the first win of the day! Of course, having no clutter on your bed is why you can make your bed. That is organized!
  2. Before you go to bed, set up the next day. By looking at your planner, you can get the items ready that you will need...
