I love a set of Before & After pictures. They make my heart smile.  

Why?  

B & A’s let us see our progress, allow us to bask in the glow of our success. Clutter is overwhelming. Starting can be what stops us from beginning. A view of where we were versus where we are now can motivate us to take on the next project!

B & A’s are inspirational. If you can do it…well…Gosh Darn It…so can I. If you can start it…well…Ehh Gad…So Can I! If you have found success with it...Jumping Jehoshaphat...SO CAN I! Motivating others with your authentic struggle...that is the good stuff of lifting others up!  

Finally, B & A’s are Pretty, Beautiful, and Simply Magnificent! 

 
 

8 Tips For Helping Our Children 
Let Go of Their Stuff!

If you have one child or ten, I don’t need to tell you that they have stuff.  A LOT OF STUFF! And, inevitably, when you’re ready to get rid of that stuff...THEY AREN'T!  

That stuff they haven’t so much as touched in months… toys, art work, clothing, books, gadgets, and birthday party goodie bag whistles INSTANTLY become prized possessions. WHAT!? WHY?! HOW?!

The challenge is real here people.  And without getting lost down a rabbit hole discussing macro level causes of how and/or why our kiddos have so much stuff…well…I’d rather just share with you practical tips that I have used with my own children, or know others have had success with! So, without further delay:  


 
    WELCOME....
    Hi, I'm Alyson.  I got my start organizing moving around the country with my husband, an Active Duty Service Member. 12 moves in 17 years.  
    With each move, we have added children and pets to our family, creating the need to become, and more importantly FEEL, organized. With every move I have honed my craft, discovering new ways to keep our same stuff in spaces that are never the same, while also learning to let go of the stuff that just doesn't hold value to my and I any longer.  That includes how we spend our time!  
    I have turned a skill into a career I am passionate about!  With a background in Social Work, earning a Masters of Social Work in 2003, I have had the privilege of working with families in their homes and in the Mental Health field. These experiences inform the way I approach the Professional Organizing relationship: starting where you are with no judgement.  And that’s what you’ll get here on the Blog too!
