What does the Professional Organizer purge…?

What does the Professional Organizer purge…?

Does she practice what she preaches, one in – one out…?

Yes, de-cluttering is an ongoing process, not a once off flurry of activity.  As purchases, gifts and projects are freely flowing in, they must be equally flowing out.  The operative word here is FREELY…

free·ly – ˈfrēlē/ – adverb

  • not under the control of another; as one wishes.
    • “I roamed freely”
  • without restriction or interference.
    • “air can freely circulate”
  • in copious or generous amounts.
    • “she gave freely from her abundance”

So what does a Professional Organizer purge…

Shoes and handbags I haven’t used and every time I try, I think I really don’t like these – so gone!

A couple of blouses that are super cute on the hanger, but not sure what I was thinking, they just are not me, so bye bye.

2 devotional books, since I have discovered the BIBLE app, I have hundreds of devotionals at my finger tips.

2016-01-29 08.35.00 A few dog beds that need mending. To be perfectly honest, its never gonna happen.  The dog doesn’t seem to mind that their torn but doesn’t lay in them anyway – OUT!

A herb pot I have decided won’t be big enough and a nearly full large bottle of hand sanitizer I bought for a hoard clear job but now just sits lonely in the garage – off to be useful elsewhere!

AND lastly…. Several recent presents I received that I just don’t like, aren’t me, things I am not going to use – BRUTAL but true. Of course I would not post pictures of such things.  I do not want to hurt anyone’s feeling.  I am also not going to take up space with things I do not want or like and that I know someone else can use :)

Where does it all go?  Some goes to the local mission, where I know things will be passed on freely for free.  Other stuff I sell on eBay or via our local Facebook Mama’s page.

I am also motivated by a goal, a monetary goal.  I have something in mind that I would like to purchase and it presently would be more valuable to me than all this STUFF combined.

Is it time for you to take a tour of your own home?  Gather the clutter, fill out a donation receipt or snap a few quick pics to post online for sale? Get a jump on the new year before its just another year buried in clutter, you can do it!

If you are in the Springs, we offer a free consultation to get you started or help you along the way.  If you are not  in the Springs, we offer online or phone consultations/sessions as well.

Junk Mail Avalanche… How to stop the onslaught!

This past week I got to catch up with a client who I have met with about 2-3 times a year over the past several years.  Yes, that is correct… getting organized is not a one and done kind of thing.  Getting organized and staying on top of a dynamic life full of work, hobbies, home and family, as many of you know, is a lot of work.  Thankfully she and I have forged a sweet relationship and she proudly calls me in for back up!

She has a mail issue, can anyone relate.  She keeps a lovely home and you would never know when you enter her tidy main level that she has hidden away boxes and boxes of papers, mail, catalogs and cards (thankfully not bills.)  So a few times a year, when it has become too overwhelming, she give me a call and I come, and we sort and toss and file….

Always Time For Thanks

Always Time For Thanks

Once again we find ourselves asking where the year went as we get caught up in the hustle and bustle of the holidays.

No sooner was Halloween over when I spied Christmas decorations out in full swing at the local Mart.

WAIT!!! What happened to Thanksgiving?

Thanksgiving is my husband’s favorite holiday. No gifts, no decorations. Just time to break bread with loved ones, enjoy their company, and be grateful for the abundance we have.

Abundance: a relative degree of plentifulness; a large portion of something.

Do you have abundance in your life? What are you thankful for in this season of your life?

I am thankful for you! I am thankful that God gave me the talents He did to help others like you!  And to show that appreciation I would love to invite you to my Holiday Open House.

Saturday November 16 11-2pm
3138 Lange Terrace 80918

Brunch will be served, and mimosas will be free flowing. People often ask me if my house is super organized. Do I practice what I preach?  Well, come and see for yourself!

I will have a special gift for you to say thank you for another record breaking year in business for MAS Movement LLC.

Please RSVP if you can, by responding to this email or on the Facebook event.

Godspeed,

Happy New Year Kick Off Class

Well it was a whirl wind of a year end!  December brought new opportunities to grow my business, new clients and new products!  MAS Movement LLC finished its best year ever, doubling previous years’ gross revenues!!!

I have found it a bit daunting to pick up momentum in the new year 2013. But there is no time like the present to change perspective and start moving ahead.

My goal this year is to reach more people who hate clutter, people who are overwhelmed, people who want to take back their time and space, people who need a lot of help, people who need a little, people just considering doing something different.  Are any of these people you?

To kick off the new year, January 22 MAS Movement LLC will be hosting a FREE time management class at the Franciscan Retreat Center in Peregrine  off  Woodman Road.

( 7740 Deer Hill Grove  Colorado Springs, CO 80919 in the Woodman Room to the left of the entrance)
 

During the class we will discuss:

getting things done
overcoming procrastination
doing the right things
margin and goals

 

It’s a new year, time to step out on the right foot. Let the past lie behind, come for a fresh perspective and some renewing encouragement to make 2013 a pivotal year in your life.

Please RSVP to help us be prepared. 719 352 1590 or jessica@masmovement.com

Just in time for the holidays!

2 Shopportunites! Is one right for you this season?

 

So many times, I have discussed with clients the value of their stuff.  I have offered eBay services on higher priced items but always wondered how I could help my clients turn their clutter into cash and/or offset the cost of my organizing services.  Well, about a month ago I found myself in the Willowstone Antique Marketplace (at Dublin/Academy next to Sprouts) and now find myself the owner of a consignment booth there…

Fearless Perspective

What scares you, I mean REALLY scares you? Being in a car accident? Loss of a loved one? Your kids not going to college and struggling in life? Losing your job?  Why do I make such awful suggestions, PERSPECTIVE.

Psychology Today defines FEAR as a vital response to physical and emotional danger—if we didn’t feel it, we couldn’t protect ourselves from legitimate threats. But often we fear situations that are far from life-or-death, and thus hang back for no good reason.

“Perfect” Timing

Timing is everything.  Whether we call it a coincidence or answer to prayer… I believe most things happen at the right time.

Today I met a client with familiar obstacles: too much stuff, too little time, too little motivation and not enough help.

Can I help her get a handle on the cluttered rooms, find a system that works for her and encourage her to build habits that will bring calm to her space?  I will do my best.  Could we have started before now? Possibly, but the bottom line is that she is ready now.  And here is the kicker… she picked up my business card over 3 years ago!!!

So what takes a person so long to make a decision or do something different?  Procrastination, fear, unrealistic expectations of themselves or other? Maybe a bit of each of these.

What is procrastination?

Cornering the Market on Great Ideas!

Isn’t the human brain an amazing organ. Not only is the brain keeping us alive by telling our lungs to breathe and our heart to beat, but it is creating thoughts, ideas and decisions that mold our very world.

In a time of facebook, twitter, pinterest and blogs those thoughts, ideas and decisions can spread like wildfire!

How does that relate to MAS Movement LLC Professional Organizing?

What happened!?!

Well as you can plainly see, it has been over a month since my last post. Why? Remember that “margin” thing I spoke of, well when my kids arrived home early from their grandparents, Colorado caught on fire and a colleague called and ask if she could hand off a client to me due to a family emergency – all bets were OFF!
