I help you think outside of the box to get something into the box.

I help you think outside of the box to get something into the box.

Home Service

My two-week "anniversary" for my COVID vaccination was 5/12/2021. So I'm hopefully safer to come into your spaces. Don't misunderstand: I'm still double-masking in indoor public spaces and when asked to do so in private spaces, still using distancing and sanitary precautions, in your home and in my everyday life. But every shot counts to getting us all closer to normal. So I'll be getting boosters too if those are recommended.

I continue to hope you and everyone you care about are safe and well. Let me know if you want to start or resume organizing work. All progress is good progress.

 

I help you declutter and arrange your belongings. I guide you through discovering the systems and the approaches that work for you in your surroundings and your point in life.

 

In the process, you might discover anything from a string of pearls to old college textbooks. I help you find your timeless treasures, and give you ideas on how to honor your property by keeping it carefully and conveniently. I’ve turned around eviction proceedings, work in hoarding situations, but have also spent 45 minutes on a makeup sales rep’s sample case. Stuff management, time, stress and stamina management and space planning are all involved. We'll work to get back your hope and pleasure in living your life, unclutter your space and your state of mind. You'll laugh during this adventure.

In the process, you might discover anything from an uncashed and valid check, to the heavy-duty stapler you misplaced, to materials for a marketing campaign that you thought had promise.

Why do you have so much trouble doing this yourself?

There can be many reasons. I wish everyone thinking about getting help from an Organizer knew that it's nothing to be ashamed about or embarrassed by.

There's more to uncluttering than clutter.

Everyone has strengths and weaknesses.

When you need help organizing, most often you just need help discovering what systems will work for you. I can guide you to that discovery and through to a completed project.

  • Many of my clients lack skills to structure their surroundings. They weren't always taught how to organize, or they were taught ways which don't actually work for them.
  • Maybe they have the ability and knowledge but they can't find a starting point or prefer company while they create their systems, or can't find the tools they need.
  • A person's lack of time management skills can contribute to their disorganization: we'll look at time-keeping techniques.
  • Sentimentality and fear can get in the way of decisions. We can talk about that.
  • A person's anxiety about the process can contribute to their disorganization - let's see what might help.

Discover what we can unclutter together. I'm conducting organizing sessions by teleconference - Zoom, Duo, Microsoft Teams, or tell me about a mechanism you like and I'm gonna investigate it the same day. One-on-one teleconferenced organizing meetings, also known as "virtual" or "remote" organizing, are usually shorter than a "regular" engagement, focus on well-defined projects even more closely than side-by-side work, and, for clients, can actually have some powerful advantages over efforts where I'm hands-on with you.

This kind of collaboration isn't for everyone, so I can't promise we'll sign a contract for a virtual partnership. If you'd like a laugh, read about my preparation misadventures on my blog. If this is an intriguing idea, call me at 425-947-3976 or email me at lauren@casualuncluttering.com. If virtual doesn't end up being a possibility, I'm still going to get to you in-person again, sooner or later. Please let your colleagues, your friends and family know about me and about virtual organizing - I'll be able to help an English-speaking person (yup, no talent whatsoever at other languages) anywhere in the world.

In the meanwhile, reach out to someone you fought with, call that college buddy, mail a letter to someone.

Be safe, be well.
