Confessions of an Organizer – Paper Stacking

By Peggy | October 4, 2013 | Comments Off on Confessions of an Organizer – Paper Stacking

I am a Certified Professional Organizer.  When most people think of that term they  immediately think of Martha Stewart……well Martha Stewart I am not.  Don’t get me wrong, I really am organized it’s just that I don’t live in a magazine. I don’t have everything color coded and perfectly labeled.  I don’t have all my papers filed immediately and I certainly have not had time to hand make all my Christmas decorations. I am a Certified Professional Organizer but I have a confession to make.  I am a bit of a paper stacker!  I am stating publicly that I have papers stacked around my house. EXHIBIT AThe above photo shows a stack of miscellaneous papers […]

Confessions of an Organizer – Emergency Preparedness

By Peggy | October 3, 2013 | Comments Off on Confessions of an Organizer – Emergency Preparedness

(photo courtesy of freedigitalphotos.net/danilo rizzuti) I live in Eastern, NC.  We have hurricanes in this area of the world.  So what does one do when one hears that a hurricane is coming?   Get prepared……..the best he/she can. I have lived in this area for 17 years.  When we first moved here, we met up with two hurricanes our first summer here.  Not my idea of a warm welcome.  Several years later, Hurricane Floyd hit our area and brought with it damaging flood waters.  This hurricane scared me enough to plead with my husband, prior to Floyd’s arrival, to run and get away from our home and not deal with such fury.  After many years […]

Confessions of an Organizer – Brilliant Clients

By Peggy | October 2, 2013 | Comments Off on Confessions of an Organizer – Brilliant Clients

I have to confess, I have a client I think is brilliant!  She has such a creative mind about organization and can cut, saw, sew, tweak and measure and make something work that I would have never even thought possible.  For example, she totally transformed her pantry, using the Elfa System from the Container Store.  Now it wasn’t as easy as buying some pieces from the Elfa system and just sticking it in the pantry and being done.  Nope, she had to tweak the system to fit into her space, cut some stuff down, order some extra pieces and install it herself!!!  She did a great job and I have told her […]

Chapters of Life

The last couple of days my schedule has changed a lot.  I’ve had clients cancel at the last minute…….I’ve had some unpleasant details to attack……….I’ve had to manage my time a little differently than I normally would.  The last couple of weeks my life has changed a lot.  My last child went to college……….I had to put my precious 13 year old dog down……….I’ve run into a small medical hiccup………my first grandchild has been born. All this to say, I have had to close  some chapters in my life and begin new chapters.  So, what is it I am supposed to do when things are changing so much?  I am learning.  I am […]
