Simplifying not Minimizing

I am embarrassed to say that it has been 7 months since I have written a blog post. Where have I been and where did all that time go? I like to think I have a great excuse…I have been overwhelmed. I have been overwhelmed with the idea of having to sort through all my great ideas and suggestions so that I can share them with you. I have been in a place that many of our clients and potential clients have been or may be right now. The state of not knowing where to start or how to break down a project into smaller attainable steps. I think I have now overcome that by convincing myself to just start.

The latest trend in the “get organized” world is to become a Minimalist. It seems to be the only message shared when it comes to organizing. Purge all your belongings, live with as little as you can and your life will be more simple and you will have more time to do all the things that you enjoy. While I do totally agree with this in my own personal life…that certainly does not mean it is right for everyone.

Some people enjoy owning certain things that others may not, and some people enjoy shopping and having a large house full of things, or a new vehicle on a regular basis and that is fine. The issue I see is when the items become the cause of stress or financial burden. That is when a change may be needed but stuff doesn’t always cause an issue.

We are not here to clear everything out of your home so that you can live the life you have been told to live.

On that note…we pledge to offer organizing suggestions for those wanting to live a more functional, tidy and productive life.
