Did you know…

• Getting rid of clutter eliminates 40% of housework in an average home.

• 80% of the clutter in homes is a result of disorganization, not lack of space.

• 80% of what we keep “just in case” never gets used.

• We wear 20% of our clothes 80% of the time.

• 80% of what we file never gets looked at again!

• 23% of adults say they pay bills late (& thus incur fees) because they lose them. (courtesy of napo.net)

• Realtors regard ‘first impression’ improvements such as decluttering closets to be one of the smartest ways to spruce up your home before putting it on the market.

Thank you, please come again

Last week’s class was a HUGE success. We were just about out of space and a few who rsvp’d weren’t able to make it! Thank you to all who were there, it was a pleasure meeting each of you.

We covered four things in the class:

Identifying clutter

Space and containers

Managing mail by “opting out”

Recycling – local resources

It was a lot of information to take in. Hopefully all those in attendance took away some helpful tools to get life in order.

Your Colorado Springs Professional Organizer

Delegate to Downsize, Outsource to Organize

So every Wednesday morning my alarm goes off and my most productive business day begins. My Wednesday morning networking meeting is most likely the most important part of my week. It is there that I get to reconnect with other like minded small business owners, learning how I can help grow their businesses and in turn sharing my ideal clients. Weather it is helping one of my chapter members streamline their home office, passing a referral for a client’s new roof or remodel or receiving a referral myself, Wednesday mornings is when I get to do the business of business.

Home Office Organization

Home Office… a well thought out hub of activity, bill paying, filing, crafting, computing and home based business center, or black hole of misery, piles, stacks, late fees, phone messages and last year’s school work? How can the black hole find its way to the light at the end of the tunnel?

Making the Move to Blog…

Thanks for stopping in to have a look around. We have updated and changed a few things here at MASMovement.com, but the goal remains the same… freedom, joy and loving the space you live in!

I realize there are a million and one blogs out there, so why hang around here? My hope is to pass on useful information to readers about other locally owned businesses, products I love and can’t live without, and perhaps the odd anecdote about, how although I make a business of getting and keeping other organized, sometimes life conspires against me and I find myself asking questions like, “how would I work through this with a client?”

So sign up, check in and/or leave feedback & questions on how I can best serve you.  Stay more connected, by “liking” our Facebook fan page http://www.facebook.com/MAS.Movement
