(10)

We take our time getting to know our clients and to honor their needs and wishes. We come prepared for anything and can adjust at a moment’s notice. Every client, every situation is unique. It takes patience, commitment and a loving heart to do what we do. We understand that sorting through and purging items you have had for many years is emotionally draining and quite difficult. Often time, we end sessions earlier than anticipated to give you the break you need. We pass no judgments. We have only your best interest in our minds and hearts. Everyone was put on this earth on purpose, with purpose and for a purpose. We do not believe anyone’s purpose was to stuff their lives with stuff, excuses and pain, nor to keep their true purpose and gifts hidden from the world. By educating, appreciating and inspiring confidence in our clients, while also deCluttering their physical spaces, they become able to make positive choices that enrich their lives and set them free. You see the stuff about your stuff, really isn’t about your stuff.

Mission: At The Organizing Mentors, we recognize we are all given the power to choose; the choice to have too much — work, papers, weight, clothes, shoes, pain, fear… or to have enough — love, strength, confidence, time. Because of this great power we were given, we believe some of us get overwhelmed and stuck. We know we want to change something, yet we are uncertain where to begin so we don’t do anything (doing nothing is a choice). Everyone was put on this earth on purpose, with purpose and for a purpose. We do not believe anyone’s purpose was to stuff their lives with stuff, excuses and pain, nor to keep their true purpose and gifts hidden from the world. By educating, appreciating and inspiring confidence in our clients, while also deCluttering their physical spaces, they become able to make positive choices that enrich their lives and set them free. You see… the stuff about your stuff, really isn’t about your stuff.

Is tax day a headache because you just couldn't find the information you needed to prepare your return? Avoid the hassle next year by taking part in National Organize Your Files Week.

The first step - and probably the most important - is reducing what you keep. Don't waste time organizing things you don't need.

If you're comfortable with technology, consider getting your bills and receipts by email when possible. It eliminates paper clutter, and even if you leave them in your Inbox, it's easy to search to find what you need.

If cool file boxes and pretty folders help you feel better about the task, then go for it -- but truly, don't get hung up on form over function. There is nothing wrong with re-using folders by slapping on a new label.

You can also store paper documents electronically -- just use an app on your phone like Scannable, and save them to the cloud using something like Drive or DropBox. Decide on a naming convention to make it easier to find what you need -- for instance, start with the date of the receipt or statement, the name of the company, and a clear description. We're long past the days when file names had to be brief and cryptic.

What is your biggest challenge when it comes to paper clutter?

Fear can be an overwhelming factor when it comes to clutter.

You may fear needing something someday, and not having the means to obtain it.

You may fear hurting the feelings of a loved one.

You may fear that without the things attached to them, you may lose your fondest memories.

You may feel that you can hold onto someone who has passed by refusing to let go of their belongings.

Those fears and feelings are natural, but they cannot be allowed to overrun your life.

We can help.

Have an Organized and Stress-Free Yard Sale

"If I didn't already own it, would I buy it again today?"

This is just one of three key questions posed by author Leah French in this great post from The Spruce about organizing a yard sale.

If it is a challenge for you to part with your belongings, you have to be honest with yourself about this yard sale thing. Is it ever really going to happen? If it's not, "I'm going to have a yard sale" is just an excuse to hang on to things you don't love, need, or use.

Make a contract with yourself that you will hold the yard sale within 30-45 days, and that you will donate anything unsold the day after the contract expires. Set your intention by actually writing the contract and signing it.

And if you're really having a yard sale? There are some great tips in this article!

https://www.thespruce.com/how-to-organize-a-successful-yard-sale-1313837

The key to having a stress-free, profitable yard sale is organization. Follow these tips to clear out your clutter and pocket some extra cash.

Today is World Autism Awareness Day. For families affected by autism, structure in the home can be an important factor in helping an autistic child life his or her best life. This applies to both routines and home organization, and it is important to remember that each child with autism has a unique set of issues to navigate.

This article discusses the importance of routines.

I hope my brother doesn't come back to visit anytime soon! I went to the most amazing flea market this weekend and bought a whole bunch of stuff that I just HAD to have. There were so many pretty glasses and some really cool doodads that might look good on the mantle -- I don't know. I guess I don't really have any use for it, and there's not really a good place to put it, so I stuck it in the guest room for now. Good thing nobody's coming for Easter!

It's SMALL SPACE SATURDAY! Sometimes, it really IS the little things! (Or is that the LITL things? Hmmm...) This versatile storage organizer has always been great in the garage or tool shed, but you can bring it into your home to organize small items in your craft room, office, bathroom, or even the kitchen!

Do you remember when your dad had one of these for bolts, screws and nails?

How would you use it now?

Today we're going to March Through the Clutter in your kids' rooms.

Kids need a sanctuary just as much as we do -- but who knows what has found its way into their rooms? One quick way to guess is to count your spoons. The more spoons you are missing from the kitchen, the more likely your kids' rooms need a deep dive through clutter. (yes, even if you have a no eating in the bedroom rule!)

Too much stuff can overwhelm children, so even when they protest, it's important to set limits on what they can keep. It's a great time to set aside outgrown clothes and books to be donated. Let the kids go with you to see how their surrendered belongings help others.

If school is stressful for your child, try to find a way to remove school books and homework from their rooms, to make them more peaceful and restful. If you can't, designate an area of the room for school work and keep it contained to that spot.

This is what long-term coping looks like

Life happens, and then sometimes things seem to fall apart.

If you've been coping too long, and you don't know how to start LIVING again, it's time to reclaim your space, mentally and physically.

We understand. We can help.

03/24/2019

It's time to March Through the Clutter in your master suite.

Your bedroom should be a sanctuary. You, and your partner if you have one, deserve a space that is wholly yours.

Today, remove all the things in your master bedroom that don't belong there. If there is laundry that needs to be folded, take care of it and put it away. Return children's toys, clothes, and blankets to their rooms. There can be no place in your sanctuary for other people's clutter if you ever hope to address your own.

If you have a desk space in your room, consider whether it could
be moved to another part of your home. Nobody needs to see their unfinished work and bills to pay looming in the corner while they're trying to sleep. If there is no better space, consider ways to put it out of sight when it's time to relax -- decorative boxes, a converted armoire, or even just attractive folders in a desktop file box.

While you're bringing out your warm-weather clothes in the hopes of attracting Spring, take a second look at the things you're packing away. Do you still love them? Do you wear them? If not, it's time to Let it go!

The kitchen is the heart of the home, and when it falls into disarray, everything about your life can seem a little harder. That makes it a great place to start reclaiming your space, mentally and physically.

This kitchen has plenty of cupboard and counter space -- but it still doesn't work if you can't organize it effectively for the way you live. The Organizing Mentors can show you how to make your kitchen work for you!
