PROFESSIONAL HOME ORGANIZING
Decluttering Coach · Space Optimization
Hi, I'm Lindsay!
I’m passionate about helping declutter your home into a place of peace. Why should it bring a surge of stress every time you open that closet door or see that unfinished project in the corner, when every spot in your home could be a place of order, of beauty, and of function?
If you feel overwhelmed in your own home, I can help you prioritize where to start, and create easily maintainable organizing systems.
Life is hectic enough — your home doesn't have to be!
HOW IT WORKS
STEP 1 // VISION
Our first 4-hour organizing session starts with a 15-30 minute walkthrough. You can ask questions, we'll talk through what's working or not working about the space(s), I'll estimate how long it would take to tackle the entire project, then we pick an area to work on for the rest of the session.
STEP 2 // DECONSTRUCT
We'll pull all items out and sort them into categories. Starting from a blank slate allows us to reimagine the form and function of the space, and seeing everything out will give you a better understanding of what you own.
STEP 3 // DECLUTTER
I coach you through the process of deciding what to keep, toss, store, or donate.
STEP 4 // ORGANIZE
Once we see what items remain, I design custom storage solutions to make the space function better. According to your preferences, we can use what you already own as much as possible, shop for entirely new organizing products, or, most often — use a hybrid of both.
As a mom of a 2- and a 4-year-old living in a 600-sq ft New York City apartment, I know what it is to feel totally overwhelmed by clutter – to have a husband who won't clean up after himself (sorry babe!), toys overflowing, extra people staying in your house, a schedule too busy to clean up between getting home from work and collapsing into bed...
I also know how life changing it can be when you transform your home
from a constant source of stress,
into a place that revives you and serves you.
I'm not a minimalist... but we choose to live with less. Our home is not stark – it’s homey and vintage and well worn, my floors could use a mopping, but the physical space of my home is organized, manageable (dare I say easy!?) to tidy and it brings me joy when i come home to it!
When you walk into a room and see only A) things that are useful to your family routine, or B) things that you love or find beautiful... that feeling lifts you up. It give you a sense of HOME. It reminds you why you work so hard, why it’s all worth it. It's much like seeing your child’s smile!
Once I hit that sweet spot, I was transformed. I can't go back! And I believe that you can have it as well.
How? The fastest way I've found is simply to have less stuff. Progressive layers of purging, until you know that everything you own either SERVES YOU or MAKES YOU HAPPY. And then – intuitive systems that everyone can follow, to keep it in order.
I can help you get there.
