Organizing Resources

In my last Dexter Patch blog post, I wrote about "Being Organized". For my clients and myself the level of organization in our spaces fluctuates with how busy we are, our health and our level of motivation for any given day or week.

Being organized is not about being perfect. To me, being organized is all about taking small, easy steps every day to maintain the level of order we need to thrive. If we skip a day or two (or a week) it is easy to literally pick up where we left off.

If you are struggling with being organized, resources abound! I just found out this morning that this Simply Organized Life Blog was included in a list of "Best 50 Blogs About Reducing Clutter" with the comments "These great little tips will transform your life!" I am honored to be listed among some of the leaders in my industry. I hope each of you reading will find a little gem to use in your daily life.

In addition, on August 26th at 10 a.m. I will be returning to the Dexter District Library to present my seminar titled "Downsizing Your Home: What to Keep -- What to Toss!" This seminar is for anyone who thinks they might have too much stuff in their home. Best of all, it is free.

Please send your comments and questions. I would love to hear about your organizing journey!


  1. Hello,
    I'm your newest follower. I am an organized person by nature and I have a mother who is a hoarder so I love your site! Lots of great tips.

    I'm doing a giveaway on my blog if you would like to stop by!
    Rebecca :)

  2. Welcome Rebecca! I recently read an article from one of my colleagues about being sensitive to people who hoard (i.e not "hoarders"). I hope these tips help you and indirectly, your mother. Any areas you are particularly interested in?
