Hot dogs and hamburgers, family by the pool, games in the front yard, there is so much left to squeeze in before the end of the heat—don’t you just love summer?
As summer comes to a close, enjoy special time with your family, but be sure that your celebrations don’t turn your home into a clutter pit for the weeks to follow, especially with back to school right around the corner. With single-use party decorations and all the extra food, plus hordes of family members coming in and out of your home, the last thing you want is to head into a new work week spent cleaning up after your weekend mess.
From documentaries and news articles to hashtags and Youtube videos, the word “minimalist” is just about everywhere these days! Sure, trends come and go, but people who follow this lifestyle seem to be onto something.
So, what is minimalism? It’s doing more with less! Adopting a minimalist approach can transform the world around you—helping you save money, become more productive, protect the planet, enjoy the little things, and live simpler.

When you have too much stuff with no place to put it, it leads to clutter and chaos. This does not allow you to enjoy the stress-free, organized home you deserve.
I don’t know about you, but I am pretty much over winter! Along with many others, we lost power for four days in one of the recent storms. Luckily, we have our emergency supply box all set up and ready just in case. However, it wasn’t fun!

Well...some may disagree, so I'll rephrase - to ME there is nothing more satisfying than cleaning out closets! I love it, I really do! I love helping people to feel lighter and less stressed by working with them to purge items which no longer suit their lifestyle.
It's time for Spring cleaning. It's also time for Spring Organizing! Working with a Professional Organizer can help you to get your house ready for a relaxing summer.
