Professional organizer

Welcome. My name is Vicki Winterton. I have worked as a professional organizer specializing in home organization here in Utah for 10 years. I work in the homes and work-at-home offices of people located in the Salt Lake Valley, Park City, and Utah County areas. I created this blog so that I could share my experiences and help people everywhere learn how to downsize, simplify, and then organize their home spaces.

How to Purge a Junk Room

sign-2016-success-stories

I worked this week for 3 days at the home of AJ in Spanish Fork. She purchased my 21 hour miracle package. AJ and her husband had combined 3 moves worth of unprocessed items into one bedroom on the main floor of their current home. She did not know how to purge and categorize the items thrown in this room.

AJ was a woman with a creative mind (she works with visual media) and she told me she had trouble categorizing items. To her credit, AJ was a very quick decision maker and once I categorized the room items into 4 main categories she was quick to sort through and decide: (1) which should go, and (2) which should stay and be assigned a good home. It took me one and one half days to complete the room beginning to end. I spent the other one and one half days working on her bathrooms, family room, living room, and work-at-home office. (read on to view the before and after photos)

Organize Kitchen Pantry Shelves

sign-2016-success-stories

This week I received a phone call from a woman (a new grandmother wanting to help) who was looking for some help for her daughter who felt a need to organize kitchen pantry shelves in her new home. This young mother, Seneca, had birthed a beautiful new baby girl five days earlier. The week before that, Seneca and her husband had moved into a new home. How is that for bringing on some MAJOR OVERWHELM!

I knew that in one morning I could easily organize the pantry and could then spend the afternoon organizing another room in Seneca’s new home so I suggested to Seneca my one day home organizing package so I could save her a little money. Take a look at the before and after photos Seneca took.  You can see in the before photo that Seneca had planned to organize by buying a few home organizing tools but she had not had the time, energy, or the detailed knowledge she felt she needed to tackle her pantry.

Do You Feel Overwhelmed?

I speak to many people when I present workshops and they typically have one major thing in common. They are All Overwhelmed! You are visiting my website because you want to get organized, but just the thought of tackling an entire room makes you stressed and anxious. You would rather be doing anything else at that moment so you continue to make piles and ignore the chaos because it’s easier to function that way instead of actually tackling it. This feeling of overwhelm spills over to other areas of your life because the visual and mental clutter will stick with you. When people are overwhelmed they tend to waste energy. They get stuck and get busy but not productive.
