Organizing and Downsizing

 

It is a beautiful thing reorganizing your belongings, for your life.

What is an organizer and why me!?

 

Because, I am naturally organized and disciplined - true story.


I've been organizing since I had my first rock collection at age 8. At 10 years old, I had a paper route and my first checking account. I began working out at age 12 and kept detailed records of all my workouts in the gym for over 30 years. As a successful fitness coach for over 40 years, I helped organize and manage people's fitness and nutrition behaviors, empowering them to regain control of their wellness. My Mom was a bookkeeper; her influence of organization was lasting in me, as she was by biggest supporter growing up. My Dad worked for Mutual of Omaha for over 25 years. He was very effective and helpful with his clients. His follow through was something I modeled throughout my fitness career and now in my business, All Points Organized!

I just love order in my life and now I can help others do the samething!


The removal of clutter and the restoring of order again and then to reorganize, remove unneeded items and objects, clean-out and clean-up of: garages, attics, closets, storage, kitchens, bedrooms, living rooms or yards and all areas of a clients' home or office. Then processing the overflow of items, stuff and belongings foe friends or family, Goodwill, recycle or discard.

 


Planning the Journey...

I spend time with you initially so we can talk, carefully map out a clear plan to help you decide what to keep, give to friends or family, Goodwill, recycle or discard. The entire process of downsizing, organizing and re-compartmentalizing is made easy and efficient, versus not knowing where to start with the amount of things we all tend to accumulate as life goes by! Often times the accumulated stuff and clutter keep staring at you day after day, causing stress, no room for anything else you really want to keep and a house that is hard to navigate.

 

Listening to the clients thoughts and vision of how they want things organized is most important. I then explain my organizational ideas for the clients' items and together we make it happen! Once an agreement is made - the work begins, bringing positive order to the life of the client in their own living space and home!

 

 I am adept at interpretation, listening and explaining to form concepts, ideas, planning, compartmentalization thinking and then being able to execute these things into a solid result together with you, to help you organized and get things back in order.

It is VERY important to make the distinction between "haulers/cleaners" and a "Professional Organizer."  A hauler/cleaner simply gets rid of things you have no idea you're getting rid of, and a major sense of loss and grief soon follows using haulers/cleaners. A professional organizer creates a straight forward, trusting and helpful relationship with you and the items and memories that are a part of your story of life. Carefully going through the "chapters and things" of your life, keep you in control of how you want to become more organized and regain better order in your life through downsizing, done properly.

 


You have arrived!

After organization takes place, all of a sudden your life is void of clutter and disarray and life becomes clearer so you can function much better at all levels. You've successfully turned the pages of your story and closed chapters of your story of life that you decide to do! Stress and anxiety levels go way down and you become more at peace in your space. You can actually locate and find stuff you want, rediscover things you thought you lost forever, decisively know you no longer need a bunch of things that are now released to Goodwill, friends, family or recycled and reused. You feel a sense of liberation! You smile and then "get on" with those hobbies, tasks, jobs, friends and family and places you want to go and do. Peace is restored.

Organizing your own stuff is very difficult to even begin, much less accomplish even with good intentions - it never gets all done and causes ongoing stress.

 

Making a willful decision to hire a competent and caring person to do the job who is professional and respects your time, immediately brings a real feeling of relief and being overjoyed happens to you rather quickly!
