July 2019 Blog

Coming back from a vacation gives me inspiration. Or maybe taking a break is inspiring. I often think, while I’m away, “why don’t I do this more??” Time away even makes here at home, look interesting. We complain about traffic, until we drive in Austin traffic at five...

Spring Blog

Spring Blog

It is time that spring is done! Over it, wind and chills really should go! As an organizer I want everything in its place and I want to set a comfortable place for those who enter these doors, whether those doors are yours or mine. So, I welcome summer… welcome her...

The Warrior

The Warrior

A brave soldier, fighter, a human being who accepts the call and walks the long arduous path of living in ones full potential. A warrior is someone who loves as fully as possible, who understands his or her needs and is fearless in telling others what are, even at the...

Decisions & Discipline

Looking back through some notes I found a handwritten, circled, scribble that said, “Decisions & Discipline”. I think it meant something more to me then that it doesn’t today, but I read those two words and felt an inspiration from them.So soon after the holidays...

October 2018

October 2018

This year I have written maybe more than I ever have before. I have made it my mission to appreciate those people around us that possibly are taken for granted. You see, you may never look up and see that the trees are changing colors, or that the days are getting...

Never Take For Granted

Never Take For Granted

I have made a conscious effort recently to notice the small things that people do that we normally take for granted. Yet within the last week I have heard the message of trusting God in many, many ways. I have listened to sales rep who travels all over to sell...

The Sweet Stuff

The Sweet Stuff

The last time I mentioned the sweet stuff, I wasn’t talking about homemade marshmallows or hand-dipped chocolate strawberries. The Sweet stuff is the moments that we share with family and friends and new acquaintances. The sweet stuff in our kitchen isn’t the brick...

The month of February we are focused on organizing the Kitchen.

The month of February we are focused on organizing the Kitchen.

Everything from the cabinets to (under) the kitchen sink. The kitchen is the number one most used room in the house, and yet so many times it is the one that is the least organized. It becomes our catchall, for mail, backpacks, recycling materials, pet bowls, and...

Contentment & Freedom

Contentment & Freedom

I kept it ALL…But I am not free January is always a new beginning a new month to refresh and regroup. We decide and determine to follow through with good intentions, but sometimes we get in our own way. Having more money allows us to have more stuff, which then we...

December 2017 – NOT About YOU

December 2017 – NOT About YOU

I logged on to the yoga stand site and signed up for a drop-in class. I updated my credit card information and looked at my history which showed I was actively involved in yoga in 2013, 2015, and now again in 2017. It seems there must be a pattern starting here, but...

November 2017 – “My neighbor told my neighbor.”

November 2017 – “My neighbor told my neighbor.”

You know how the story goes, when your standing out by your mailbox and the neighbor waves and walks across the street, to say hello, or really to ask who all had been parking in your drive. They might as well come over and ask, “who is in your house and why are they...

August

August

It is a funny thing, the things we keep… I find it very interesting, and sometimes bizarre, although those are the thoughts I keep to myself, the things, the stuff that people hang on to for years. Over the summer months, we have organized clients who are moving and...

We just hosted a booth at this year’s Home & Garden Show. We had the opportunity to meet so many people, and friends I hadn’t seen in a very long time. We had the best people working and making the best of spending the weekend in a booth at the show. As we saw...

It is a peculiar phenomenon that happens with CHAOS! I recently visited a potential client home where there was nothing in the right place! It seems like the chaos was contagious, and manifest itself in every place and corner of the house. I heard many excuses from...

What is clutter anyhow?

What is clutter anyhow?

Feb 2017 Some of you have asked me “Am I a hoarder? Or how do you know I am a hoarder?’ It goes back to if you have to ask, well, yes you probably are. But before we get to the hoarding stage, let's break this down. What is Clutter? The formal definition is: clut·ter...

If there was ever a time to take a leap of faith…

If there was ever a time to take a leap of faith…

This would be it. We as a nation are in a place of transition and depending on your opinion, we are in for wild & exciting, or a very bumpy ride. We can look back and complain about the past, and live on hope for the future. Or the other option is to look ahead,...

October 2016 – Change

October 2016 – Change

I have thought about change recently, and it seems that has been a common topic for me recently, yet I keep having reminders, from everyday life and the people around me. Change is inevitable and it is an understood part of life. I have recently met a girl, who is...

“Change starts with accountability within”

“Change starts with accountability within”

A recent post had that sentence included within and I have carried it with me since…. I think about how we raise our children and how we organize our clients, & management of our time. The teaching of the generations to do better, feel better and know better than...

We have recently been working on an estate sale for a little lady that I have yet to meet. She comes by the times when we are gone, and we work while she is away. There are items in that house that are eighty – five years plus inside. Everything from love letters to...
