It's Time to GO! (Get Organized, of course!)

January is a great time to organize. Why? Because it fits right in with New Year's resolutions and plans for making 2009 your best year ever, that's why. There are so many great things going on during GO month. You can take advantage of the 30% off Elfa sale at The Container Store. Or look into hiring a professional organizer to get that tough organizing project you've been procrastinating off your mind once and for all. There are also lots of NAPO (National Association of Professional Organizers) organizing events going on all over the country that you can check out too. No matter what you decide to do during GO month remember that getting organized is one of the best gifts you can give yourself this year. Whether you decide to organize a single closet or your garage just do the best you can! And feel free to call on me if you need some help reaching your 2009 organizing goals!

Hi Melissa,

I've let things get out of control again and am committed to getting it back under control so logged on today to see what was up on your web-site. Thanks for the inspiration! I hope all is good in your world. Happy New Year!

Hi Kelsi,
Happy New Year to you too! With a bit of motivation and a goal in mind (lightening your load before your move) you whipped your life into shape in no time--I have no doubt that you'll be able to do it again! What's your motivation for getting organized this time? Once you figure that out it will help drive you forward. You know I'd be happy to fly there to help you or I suppose you could look up a Professional Organizer in your area to help you get started since I'm not the only good one out there! ;) Let me know what you're going to tackle first and I'd be glad to give you some tips and/or encouragement. Hope to hear from you again really soon!

Client Feedback

I work out of a home office without any administrative support. I worked with Melissa to organize both my personal and professional effects as I prepared to relocate. I wish I had done it years ago. While organizing my office and paperwork Melissa identified my natural tendencies and created an organizational structure that was easy for me to maintain. When I began looking for a personal organizer, I mostly wanted someone else to come in and take care of the mess I had allowed to build up over the years. Working with an “uninterested” party during the purging process helped me lighten my load considerably. During the process Melissa provided me with simple intuitive skills that have not only allowed me to maintain my newly found order but help friends and family organize as well. I can honestly say hiring Melissa is one of the best things I have ever done for myself. Kelsi Reeves
