About Clutter Management Testimonials Home


In the 17th century, someone was quoted as saying, "A place for everything and everything in it’s place." It was my fourth grade teacher who introduced this sentence to me, and it is the basis of how I have lived my life.

To me, organizing is putting like-kind things in convenient and easy to find places, within reach of tasks the items are used for. All items used frequently should be within easy reach, while items used less often can be stored in a less convenient area. For example, in the kitchen, things like serving-ware for special occasions can be stored on a top shelf or even in the garage. In the office, files not being currently worked with can be kept in a file drawer of the desk, or a file box in the garage, which leaves the desk surface clear for the work you are doing..

Being organized saves time and money. When you can easily find what you are looking for, it not only saves time, but you also save money because don’t have to buy another one. Not only that, but according to the National Dish and Soap Association, getting organized and reducing clutter reduces housework by 40%!

Not everyone needs to hire a professional organizer to get control of their home or business. But some people don’t know where to start, nor have the time to get organized. Others are going through a divorce or have just lost a spouse, and are in immediate need of sorting through possessions, which can be overwhelming in the best of circumstances. This requires deciding what to keep, what to sell or donate, and what to toss.

The hardest step for most people is committing the time to start the first organizing project. This is why a professional can be very helpful. Once you make an appointment and meet with Denise you have begun the process. Since only you know your needs and preferences, you will be involved in the process, and you will learn the principles of organizing as you work together.

By organizing the space you have, you gain the extra space you are seeking. Proper organizing is a one-time project. Good organizing creates a maintenance-free system that uses your daily routines to keep it in the same pristine condition as the day you finished organizing.
