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.

How to Organize Basement Storage

sign-2016-success-storiesI worked for a male client located in Orem, Utah this week. Scott wanted me to tackle and organize basement storage shelves. Because he was a man of importance at his workplace he felt it was a finance forward decision to hire me rather than take the time  himself to do the work.

I explained to Scott that I did not know which items his family valued so he, his wife, and their four children would need to take a quick look through the items I pulled off the shelves so they could decide what would be purged and what would be put back on the shelves I categorized and zoned. (Look at the photo below to see the finished project.)

Book Review

The Organized Mind

Book - The Organized MindI just finished reading the non-fiction book THE ORGANIZED MIND: THINKING STRAIGHT IN THE AGE OF INFORMATION OVERLOAD by Dr. Danial Levitin who included loads of scholarly research.  The author, a neuroscientist himself, tells us in the book that recent neuroscience research has learned a lot about the brain in relation to organization and productivity, but it hasn’t trickled down to the average reader. His aim was to bring the science to the average person.
