As a professional organizer since 1994, I've seen incredible results with clients whose lives are transformed after order is established. It's one of those benefits of this profession that make it all worthwhile, no matter how laborious it can sometimes be!

In a recent article published in LA Times and Chicago Tribune, it features my advice on cutting clutter out of your life. It is titled, "Lose it: declutter your way to an organized, happier you". Here is an excerpt of this article:

Handling paper clutter can look like a daunting task for many people, yet all it really takes is to tackle such a project is to just tackle it! Our method starts with gathering all the paper piles into one area, then begin sorting through each paper pile as we categorize each document. The tools we use range from a hanging folder cart or box to a document sorter. Continue reading
I just made an amazing discovery! A Paperkarma app that helps get rid of junk mail! All you have to do is take a photo of the mail you want to stop, and the app will contact the sender on your behalf. If this works, it's a pretty cool app! I downloaded it today and am waiting for the junk mail to arrive! Can't wait! (I mean, who looks forward to receiving junk mail, right?) Continue reading
