I was happy to recently be interviewed for an article in the Patriot News on the psychology of clutter.
You can read it here. Thank you to my clients for sharing your experiences!

It’s that time of year again. Time to make resolutions for a better year, a better decade, and a better you. With a new year, and this fresh start, now is the perfect time to focus on your organizing goals.

Adding more order to your life improves the quality of your life. Organization reduces frustration and stress and helps you feel in control. An organized home offers you a retreat and place to share quality time with those you love. Make 2010 the year that you take control of your home instead of letting it take control of you!

All it takes is baby steps. Here are some suggested resolutions:
1. Spend at least 1 hour a week on Set Me Free!’s Monthly Missions.
2. Spend 15 minutes a day on an organizing project of your choice.
3. If you stay at home or work from home, commit to getting yourself dressed and out-the-door ready (and your kids too) by 9 am. Being ready for the day means that you can answer the door for the unexpected guest, or meet up with a friend for a spontaneous playdate or lunchdate. And when you’re dressed you get more accomplished!
4. Clear the clutter! Commit to donating 1 bag of unneeded items each week to the charity of your choice!
5. Only buy items that you have a place for right now!

I encourage you to post YOUR organizing resolution below!
