Spring. Has. Sprung.
It’s time to organize your home and let go of the things that no longer spark joy.
Not next year. Today.
Organizing your home is one of the best investments you can make because it brings peace and a calming simplicity into your life, which, for lack of better words, makes everything else better.
Ideas For You:
✔ Clean out your closet. Part ways with the clothes you didn’t wear last spring/summer.
✔ Go through your papers and categorize your documents this tax season.
✔ Books. Only keep what truly sparks joy when you hold it. Kids? Donate what is no longer age appropriate so someone else can enjoy it.
✔ We all have that drawer that is overstuffed in the kitchen, an overflowing garage we’ve neglected and toys that have been outgrown and shoved in a closet. If you haven’t used it in the past year, it’s time to let it go.
✔ Revisit your keepsakes. What we once held onto changes over time. For the items that bring you the most joy, consider a scrapbook or a beautifully labeled bin to give your memories a home that has purpose instead of taking up space.
Where do I even start?
How many seasons have gone by where you have struggled to get these organizational projects completed, or even started? The truth is that this stuff is difficult and easy prey for the procrastinator in all of us.
This spring, let’s get your home in order.
As a professional organizer, I work closely with my clients through life events (moving, marriage, divorce, new baby) and/or your general frustration with a disorganized home.
We assess, organize your physical space and set up sustainable systems to establish and maintain order. The key to a successful system is first getting to the root of your disorganization and then guiding you through the psychological part.
As a certified Konmari Consultant, Shaí Organized uses the KonMari Method in conjunction with our own techniques to help clients declutter in a mindful way. We guide you through a thorough inventory of your belongings to determine what still deserves a place in your home and life. We start with the easiest categories—i.e. clothes, books, papers and komono (aka miscellaneous items like kitchen utensils and toys)—and then move on to tackle the more difficult sentimental items that may or may not deserve a place in your home anymore.
A professional organizer comes in as a supportive confidant throughout the purge process to help you let go of what no longer serves a purpose. We then create a chaos- and clutter-free life with a few simple customized systems. After we make space and organize your home, I donate what you no longer need to a local charity. Two of my favorites are Dress for Success and SAFE, which directly benefit the women and children in Austin.
For any of your items that cannot be donated or repurposed, Texas Disposal Systems (TDS) offers the perfect option for home projects with their mini roll-off dumpsters. TDS is one of the largest independently-owned companies who provide the highest quality and most environmentally friendly services in Central Texas. They are truly top-notch and give you peace of mind that your belongings are responsibly managed and diverted to beneficial uses.
When you let things go through the organizing process, you create space in your mind and in your home for a calm, chaos-free daily experience.
Stay tuned for some of my favorite tips and tricks for creating organized systems post-purge next month.
