A New Year, a new you and a new organized life. Does that sound like something you have been yearning for? If so, you are not alone. Getting organized is consistently one of the top 5 New Year’s Resolutions of Americans.
Why is that? Why do so many Americans feel out of order and unorganized? I believe the answer is two-fold. First, most of us live at such a fast pace that we are simply overwhelmed. We plan too much, try to accomplish too much, shop too much, and generally run ourselves ragged. Secondly, many of us simply haven’t learned basic organization skills. Or, we have gotten out of the habit of practicing those skills that we may have learned and practiced in the past. Life is constantly changing, and so must our organizational habits, if we are going to keep ourselves, and our lives, in order.
Come along with us in 2013 as we offer some exciting, new, fun, learning opportunities for all who feel out of order. Come discover how to, slowly, but surely, clear the clutter, conquer the chaos, and learn simple organizing tips, tricks, habits, and strategies to get your home, your family, your business, and your life in order.

It is a skill and a way of life that needs to be learned and re-learned, practiced and tweaked.
