Do you hoard emails? Why?

Hey Collectors! Do you hoard emails? Gulp, okay guilty confession apparently I do too! I got a notice from Yahoo! today saying I had exceeded my storage limit!! No way, right? Um, yes way!

I just spent the last couple of hours deleting years worth of emails. I feel liberated! I had no idea what I had saved! (sound familiar????) 

I guess it was out of sight out of mind? I also worked in a corporate environment for several years where we all saved every email to cover our you know whats. They were literally called CYA emails.

Whoah! I have to tell you it feels good to do that purge! Join me in purging emails this weekend (or whenever you find yourself reading this). Don’t wait for a notice to be posted to drive you into de-cluttering your inbox! Learn from the Pro’s!

Do you allow people into your home?

Hey Collectors!
How long has it been since you had company over? Do you close your windows and blinds so that the neighbors cannot peak in and see the mess? Is your home in need of dire repairs but the thought of letting a repairman in sends you into a panic? Guess what? You are not alone. We see people like you all of the time. People who are overwhelmed with clutter to the point of isolation.

This situation does not have to be forever. With courage and determination, you can achieve your goal of having the home you deserve! Let go of the fear of failing. Breathe through the moment of being stuck. If you need to ask for help, it’s okay! If you don’t know where to start, hire a trained professional organizer who is non-judgmental, caring and efficient.

Before you know it, you will be able to have people over, and be able to take pride in your home. You will be able to leave your over cluttered past behind you.

Good luck Collectors and never give up!

Procrastination + Chores

Hey Collectors!

What’s going on?! You putting some things off? Are you procrastinating on your chores as usual? What makes you put them off? Are you distracted? Would you rather be doing anything else?

I get it it. You associate your chores with negative feelings. Feelings that stemmed from childhood, old feelings. Household chores = yucky. You might be reminded of being made to pick up as a child, or as many of my clients, you were never shown to pick up, so you don’t really know how. Maybe your parents hated chores and you are imitating them subconsciously. Maybe your stomach turns at the thought of doing chores because your entire being associates chores as being painful.

It’s time to shift the way you think. Chores = happiness. You can finally have people over, you can find things easily so you are not late, you save money so you are not buying duplicates.
Messy = yucky. Messy equals guilt, embarrassment, shame, always running late, having to buy duplicates. 

Let’s define the word “chores”:

Dictionary.com definition of the word “chores”, 

the everyday work around a house or farm. 

The word “everyday” is super important, as being organized requires a conscious steady effort. You have to maintain your routine in order for it to last.

Instead of moving towards happiness we stay in the land of procrastination, watching tv, surfing the net, and doing anything else possible. Avoiding. Procrastinating. Staying in a rut. Stagnate. No forward motion.

Do you want to be unhappy not doing chores? Or actually be happy by maintaining your nest?

At what point does being unhappy sitting in a mess become worse than actually picking up?

Ask yourself these questions Collectors. Stop procrastinating! You deserve to be happy!!
