Organizing Mastery Success Story:
Lana, a normally happy 42 year old school teacher in Denver, CO with short red hair was feeling sad about her bedroom. Since she was a child her parents always nagged her about her room, and now she was living the way they predicted she would. Un-hung clothing laid around on every surface, there were papers and books on her bed, notepads and unopened mail on the dresser.
Lana said, "more than anything I want to wake up in a beautiful, decorated bedroom. But every morning when I look at the overwhelming amount of work that has to be done, I don't know where to begin, and I relive hearing my mother's complaining voice. I just don't know what to do."
Being in the Organizing Mastery class helped Lana get to the root of her problem. Her organizing was not about the "stuff" in the room, it was about breaking down the barriers that kept her from making decisions. During the class Lana worked on her bedroom. Her bedroom was cleaned up in 90 minutes! Organizing is about loving yourself!

A Professional Organizer
A Professional Organizer Horror Story
Yes... it happens!
Sometimes the professional organizer that you hire is not very good. And some, I hate to say, are downright horrible.
Here is today's organizer horror story. Don't let this happen to you!
Mary, a tall 73 year old widow in Miami, FL always wanted her house organized. She had papers strewn about on the tables and the dressers, and a few envelopes scattered on the couch. She had a piles of clothing to give away, a small pile to mend, and other items of clothing lying around that she had to make decisions about. The blue basket by the door held items to give charity, and a small pile of dusty books that couldn't fit on the bookshelf sat on the floor.
Mary saved up and finally hired Garth, a professional organizer she found on Google. "Garth seemed nice at first, but then he started ordering me around. I was having a hard time processing all of the things he was ordering me to throw away!" He would say, "You don't need that book," or "Those slippers look ratty; throw them away! I felt I needed more time to process my feelings about my things, but Garth wanted me to rush. I threw away a pair of shoes that I really wanted to keep, and I'm still angry about it!"
So... then what happened?
After spending four hours and several hundred dollars, Mary's house looked worse. Garth breezed through Mary's house and started moving her things around and telling her that her things were in the wrong place. When the ordeal was over, a tired Mary sat and cried. The organizer simply made new piles and nothing was put away. Her house was in worse shape than before. She didn't understand what the organizer was telling her to do, she had just wasted hundreds of dollars for no reason, and she felt insulted.
