So many people approach us in every manner you can imagine. Email, Phone, FB, LinkedIn or walking up to us in a parking lot after we get out of our company vehicle. And the question they ask?

“What do you do?”

Our Answer…We Empower you. It’s not just about organizing. We take that overwhelming feeling and self doubt and, right beside you,we battle against it.

Do you walk into your home and ever feel like turning around and walking out again because there is so much “stuff” in your space?

We take the time to understand why you’re feeling this way and use our 15 years experience to bring your space back to you.

Is there a place in your home that is not being used the way you want it? A spare room that’s the “dumping ground” for everyone in the family?

To be honest…we make things right in your world. That’s what we do. We streamline, organize and bring back that smile.

Is the tsunami of paper coming into your home about to cause a major disaster?

Setting up systems in every part of your space so that you can maintain an organized and stress-free home. That’s what we do.

Can you do this yourself? Yes, quite possibly you can. Can you stay on task, not get distracted by everyday life and get the space “cleared” in a matter of hours instead of weeks? Maybe not.

Can we? Yes! Because we love our jobs and we’re good at what we do.We Empower You

Yes! There’s no doubt about it now….Spring is here!

And I don’t know one person that doesn’t love it! As Canadians it amazing how much that beautiful sunshine makes everything feel that much better.

You’ve opened the windows and thrown up the sashes and…..Wow there are some serious dust bunnies under those chairs, beds and behind the doors. Trust us we know, that sunshine we love suddenly lets us see all our winter secrets!

It’s ok! We got this covered. With Spring, comes the desire to get out from under the stuff and the confining feeling you’ve had for 5 months. It’s wonderful! The “honey-do” list gets started and it rolls on and on and on!

We’ve got our own honeys and they have their own ” to do” lists.

BUT…..there’s something to be said for getting it all done in a shorted span of time. Yes, we all go “clean up” crazy and everyone feeds off everyone else’s energy, but it soon peters out and then you’re left with a half finished list and a bunch of half finished jobs.

So, step one. Take it easy! ONE thing at a time

.

Decide on a plan of action. Garage sale days are coming up in Lucan and Ilderton – May 7th. So this weekend encourage the kids and your partner to grab a box or bag and fill it with things that have been hiding out of site for months maybe years! Get the kids excited about sending those clothes and toys off to someone who really needs it! A garage sale is a great family event and it helps the kids understand the value of things. They must be fully aware that if it goes out to the garage sale it DOES NOT come back in if it doesn’t sell.

So 25 cents in their pocket is better then nothing!

Be hard cord on this rule. When the sale is over, pack up the remaining items into your car and send them off. Don’t linger! Don’t say “what if” –

trust us, if you were willing to part with it at 7am by Labour Day you’ll have forgotten it even existed!

That’s step one! Next time we’ll chat about that “honey do” list that has now created a rift the size of the Grand Canyon.

March 21st is the day and why not make it your day to set a few goals.

Make a list of the spaces in your home that you just avoid because of the clutter. The rooms that overwhelm you before you take a step in.

Beside each room write down what you’d actually like to see that room become ( spare room, sewing room , toy room)

Now get out your calendar and write March 21st beside the most important room on your list.

Continue down the list placing dates 2 weeks apart beside each room you’d like to tackle.

The key to success is not to bite off too much, and to ask for help when you need it.

We’re here for you. It’s what we do besthockey-gear
