Great weather today for getting outside!! Take care to social distance and don't walk in the 'air flow' of runners and joggers.

And for rainy Sunday? -- ORGANIZING 101

Don't worry - can't do it all at once. Let's start with the basics!

Ready?

Principal #1 - ZONES - Your home has lots 'zones' - no matter if you live in a multi-bedroom, multi-floor house or a studio apartment --

coat closet, living room, dining room, kitchen, pantry, bedroom, bathroom, linen closet, office, utility room ...

See what I mean? (And yes, each room has zones, too.) Sounds like a lot, but the good news is we organize one zone at a time and then we are "off duty". Remember, we can't do it all at once!!

Can we help you map your house? We are here to help - even at a safe distance. Skype and Zoom are new to the tool bag!!

I'm organizing the frig and the pantry! Went shopping yesterday (left the candy behind and bought lots of healthy vegetables and meat). Soup is on the stove, the veggies have been cleaned and put away again. Salad is on the horizon. Is your pantry organized for the 'stay-at-home?' Need help? Give a call!!

04/21/2020

Decluttering can seem super overwhelming, right? some tips: 1.make a short list of small rewards cause you are going to want one. 2.think zones, even in one room; 3.focus on one zone at a time; 4.spend ~1 hr; 5.wrap it up for the day; 6. REWARD TIME!! I'm still available to help (virtually) despite being covid shut-in. Be well!!

04/17/2020

Full house today at Holiday Park Senior Center in Maryland, at my presentation on Getting Organized.

My main message? Its all about the mindset - KINDNESS (to yourself.and your family), PERMISSION (to let go of things that no longer serve your life, OPPORTUNITY (new hobbies, new friends, peace of mind, -- that come with getting organized, GENEROSITY (the feeling that comes with giving away things no longer needed). What do you think?

Thinking about safety -- It is always good to cultivate habits that promote safety at home. What are a few?
1. On the stove top - no paper, nothing but your tea kettle and spoon rest.
2. By the stove - keep papers and other things at least 3" away from the stovetop.
