We've all been there.
We really, really want to get organized, but the project feels so overwhelming that we don’t even know where to start. So we continue to ignore the problem, our space gets messier and messier, and we get more and more frustrated.
So how do we stop this cycle of frustration and disorganization and actually take action?
Sometimes we just need an easy starting point.

"The guide was very helpful as my daughter and I began the huge project of moving her bedroom from the first floor to the second floor. We went through 7 years of “stuff” to reduce, reuse or recycle. The guide helped us plan and make progress. Great information and extremely helpful in this huge project. For the record we are 75% of the way to completion! Thank you!!"

"Thanks for your guide. After downsizing twice and relocating to a new apartment, the spare room was filled top to bottom with bins... and your guide was certainly a help to jumpstart my hefty task ahead! I am now making a start, and trash day last week was a biggie! I look forward each day to a new task to complete!"

Hi, I’m Abby, and I'm just a smidge obsessed with organizing... Okay, maybe a little more than a smidge! Naturally scatterbrained, I've come to love decluttering and organizing spaces because I love the peace it brings to our home. And while our house is far from perfect, I am always searching for ways to cut the clutter and create a more serene, welcoming space for our family!
When I'm not blogging, you can find me running on the local trails, curled up with a good book, or going on adventures with my husband Donnie and our two sons, Connor and Caleb.
