Guest Post: Controlling “Dump” Zones

There are a few other organizers I have met in this great town of Athens. I love that we can support one another. I had the pleasure of having coffee with a new organizer just getting her feet wet in this business, Lisa Lewis.  She has some great ideas and has been working on her own home and friends spaces for some time and is now available to help others. She has a special passion for helping those whose clutter has become debilitating and extreme.  But for today I've ...continue reading

It's January....the new year...everyone is making resolutions and goals. Have you?  Did you make a goal about organizing?
