Welcome to 2016!

We wish you a Happy, Healthy

and Organized New Year!

Many of you have made a New Year's Resolution to GET ORGANIZED in 2016, and we are here to help you achieve your goals.  The path to being more organized is achievable if you follow just 3 simple steps.

Start Small  This is our favorite tip to help you get organized.  So often those organizing projects are just so overwhelming that it is hard to see progress, but if you make slow steady progress, you will see improvements and not get so easily discouraged.  Want to organize the kitchen?  Consider one shelf, one cupboard or one drawer at a time.  Ready to tackle the basement?  Dedicate some time and focus on one area---15, 30 or 60 minutes on a regular basis will help you bring you closer and closer to your goal.  The same with all of that paper that is cluttering up the desk or dining room table.  Don't try to get it all done at once---just schedule some time every day until you reach your goal.

Store Like With Like  So much of the clutter that is in our lives is there because we cannot think of where to store an item.  We see this all the time.  The Christmas decor is scattered throughout the house, important documents are in every drawer, and clothes are stored on the treadmill for easy access.  You will have an easier time finding something you need the next time you need it if it is stored with similar items in a place that makes sense to you.

Store Items Close to Where You Will Use Them  For most of us, the goal of GETTING ORGANIZED is to be able to find something quickly the next time we need it.  Who wants to waste valuable time looking for that bill that needs to be paid, the perfect scarf or tie, or that special spice?  Save time and steps by considering where you will be using an item, and then create a home for it there.

The above tips are the basics which we hope will guide you to your more organized life.  For additional tips, we invite you to download our Top Ten Organizing Tips, Ten Tips to A More Efficient Work Day, and (if you are planning a move this year) Preparing Your Home for A Quicker Sale.  

Our New Year's Resolution

is to keep you inspired and on the path to GETTING ORGANIZED through regular updates via Facebook, LinkedIn and Pinterest.  

Of course, we are also available for some 'hands-on' assistance.  Feel free to call Muffy @ 216.321.6126 or JoEllen @ 440.498.1930 to see how we can help you reach your goals more quickly.  Or request a free consultation, and we can set up a time to meet.

Buried In Treasures

Do you, or someone you know, suffer with hoarding?  We are pleased to announce that The Hoarding Connection of Cuyahoga County is forming Buried in Treasures groups throughout the county, slated to begin in January 2016.

Buried in Treasures is an action-oriented peer-led treatment group. The facilitated group is highly structured and time-limited, consisting of 15 sessions spread over 20 weeks. Each session focuses on a chapter in the book, Buried in Treasures: Help for Compulsive Acquiring, Saving, and Hoarding (Tolin, Frost, & Steketee, 2nd ed. 2013, Oxford University Press). The sessions are facilitated by a nonprofessional who may have (or have had) hoarding disorder or a special interest in it. Activities include discussion of each chapter, exercises from the book dealing with acquisition, discarding, and disorganization, and homework between sessions. Research by Randy Frost and colleagues indicates that up to 73% of participants are much or very much improved by the end of the group.

Follow this link, and you will be able to register and indicate your preference for an area where you wish to meet.
