Another Fall and the kids back to school... kind of. This has not been a typical year and is not a typical "back to school" season. There is no denying it can be tough with everyone Zooming in their own room, be it for school or work!
I love the above image because it's how I feel several times a week. With everyone home, getting the house under control right now can feel like a monumental task! Take a few minutes to congratulate yourself on small victories, even if it is just organizing a drawer.
It does seem that all this time at home has made people really want to invest in their homes, which is a wonderful silver lining of all of this. I see lots of houses getting painted and back yards getting spruced-up. Places like Goodwill are also overwhelmed with donations as people simplify their lives and learn how good it feels to live with less.
Take care and stay well,
Over the past six months my business, like many others, has changed in significant ways. The biggest change is that I am now offering virtual organizing services. In these mini 1-2 hour organizing, coaching, or planning sessions, we meet via Zoom and choose a limited area to dive into. Whether it's planning for a move, strategizing how to tackle a larger project, or purging your closet, you are doing the hands-on work and I am coaching you through it. After the session, I do offer contactless donation pickup for SF residents. Simply place the items outside at the appointed time and watch them disappear!
To find out if virtual organizing is for you, take a look at my website. Of course, you can always call or email me with questions or book a free assessment or virtual session.
