Let’s be honest, clutter is exhausting. What you purchased in the pursuit of happiness, may actually be having the opposite effect.
There’s hope! Clearing away clutter isn’t just about organizational strategies, it’s about helping you figure out why it felt comforting to surround yourself with clutter in the first place.
My 1,300 clients have bought all the popular books on cleaning up.
Then they call me because they cannot possibly parse out joy in a crowded office, in a home of their late mother’s possessions, or in a closet filled with items that represent a past they long for, or a future that only gets more illusory.
These are not hoarders. These are everyday, successful people like you whose lives have become unmanageable because of their stuff.
A few more words from my clients...
"Tracy comes into her client's private homes with delicacy and sensitivity. Her personality connects with people."
"Tracy is one of those rare people who surpasses your expectations rather than just meeting them."
"Tracy is the perfect mix of a psychologist and an organizer."
Okay, it's your turn. Let's get to it.
I'm going to teach you systems and techniques so the clutter never, ever comes back. Because if you don’t address the emotional need the clutter is filling, you may be able to get rid of what you have, but the clutter will return. In the end, your home is a tool that needs to work for you.
As the co-founder of non-profit OneKid OneWorld, I've spent over a decade helping to build schools and raise tuition for kids in Kenya and El Salvador (like this gorgeous student in the photo!). So it's no surprise that giving back is a cornerstone of my business. When you're looking for spots to donate your decluttered items, keep an open mind. There are likely a bunch of places locally that would love to put them to use. Here are a few ideas:
- Find a homeless shelter to donate your gently worn work clothes for men and women who are prepping for interviews.
- Pet shelters are often thrilled to get a donation of stained-but-fluffy towels and sheets for their cats and dogs.
- See if there's a toy loan program (it's like a library for toys) in your community that's looking for donations.
