A Message for the Client:
Organizing is a process and it is not about perfection. Together we will work to create a system that functions to your individualized needs. It is not necessary to spend an excess of money on supplies. We can be creative and find use for items you may already have on hand.
Be kind, patient and loving to yourself during this process for changes in organizing habits takes time and requires multiple organizing sessions. Organizing is a mindset and cyclical. It is the client’s responsibility to implement and maintain organizing systems recommended by the organizer and to communicate if a system is not “working”.
