Sue leads a busy life. As a wife, mother of four, full-time worker and very involved volunteer community member, she’s always moving. It’s challenging to keep everyone organized, and the house in order.
Husband David, sensing that she might benefit from working with a professional organizer, gave her a gift session with De-clutter Me! We would work on the house for the family’s current life, though also keeping in mind its move to Florida in a year.
We first focused on the front hall. A closet, with its doors removed, still stored winter jackets (in late June) and many pairs of shoes. With a de-cluttering priority of healthy habits coaching, we decided that each family member would keep just one pair of shoes there. All the rest – into his or her closet!
The hallway was piled with laundry and other stuff, too. We cleared it.
We moved next to the scrapbooking room, where the family’s two young daughters like to work on projects. Its horizontal surfaces were full. We put items away, created spaces for others and strategized for our next session together.
Another work in progress!
