Organizing comes naturally to me. I love starting new projects to make things more efficient, useful, and beautiful. I rarely sit down to relax, unless it’s to read or write, two of my other passions, and I am constantly thinking of ways to improve the systems in my home and life. When the seasons change, I feel excited because I know it’s time to purge and declutter, reorganize and rearrange my closets, my kitchen, and my life in general. Mastering the art of organization helped me build a life overseas, start a new career, and, when I got married, live with someone who needed major help getting organized (my dear husband).
Organization is really just a system, and systems help us to use our time efficiently so that we can live our lives in ways that matter to us—in meaningful ways. That’s why I’ve named my business and blog Meaningfully Organized. I believe that we spend a lot of our time and energy running around and performing meaningless tasks. I loathe “busy work” and clutter. That’s why I am passionate about getting rid of the things that don’t matter, saying “no” to activities that hog our schedules and drain us of energy, and focusing on how to optimize our environments and ourselves.
I truly believe that if you are organized, disciplined, and motivated, you can accomplish any task. I have helped many people get organized and stay organized, which has allowed them to grow their businesses, be more productive, and spend their time meaningfully.
Thanks for stopping by! I hope that you’ll continue to follow along on my journey as I share tips, ideas, projects, and steps to help you get organized so that you can spend your time in more meaningful ways. And, if you live in the Chicagoland area, I hope you’ll reach out if you’re in need of a Professional Organizer.
