I’m Not Alone

Well, it’s official. 

After watching today’s episode of the Nate Berkus show, I now know I’m not the only one obsessed with organization and de-cluttering. It’s o.k. to admit I’m a perpetual organizer.


In my last post, I shared with you some of the areas of my home where I have re-organized again.  I also mentioned that I am constantly cleaning things out. I think more clearly when my stuff is organized.  I certainly like carefully edited spaces when it comes to design although I’m not a minimalist.


Turns out, I’m in good company. Nate’s guest on the segment De-cluttering 101 was organizational expert, Jill Pollack who said she is constantly purging her closets.  Really? We must be kindred spirits. lol  She said it is not something that’s one time and done, but something that has to be on-going to be effective.  And, of course, the more you clean things out, the easier it is to stay organized.

Nate said that de-cluttering and organizing was THE FIRST STEP TO GOOD DESIGN.

I couldn’t agree more.


There’s still time left in January to “knock-out” all those cluttered areas in your home and start the New Year off right with organizational solutions for every room. There’s a multitude of books and info on the web of tips and tricks to get you started and a host of organizing solution stores.

What are you waiting on?

Move over, clutter….here comes great designs!!!

Blessings,
Kim

Kim, I'm with you! I like things neat and organized, as well. I go through a huge purging, right after the holidays, and try to keep up with it all year. However, the closer I get to summer, I slack off. But, I redeem myself just before Fall. Great post!

I'm in purge mode all the time, because I buy and sell for a living. It's definitely an uphill battle in my studio and garage. That's something I really have to work on this year.
