Success Stories

The house became “dead” to me

I just finished your 7-Day Quickstart program and I’m SO INSPIRED!! I have LONG had a huge problem with clutter and it has been exhausting. I decided recently that I HAD to get it under control. Here’s my story: We moved into our current house over 4 years ago, but I have never finished unpacking…. Read more »

I felt like a goat in a junkyard…

I knew I had a clutter problem. I knew it because everytime I tried to walk through my dining room, I felt like a goat in a junkyard…stepping over things and around things constantly. I was tired of it, but it wasn’t until I looked in a bag on the dining room table in early… Read more »

We had cabinets full of dead stuff

We moved to Santa Barbara 12 years ago and bought a home. We paid three times as much for a house the was half the size of our Texas house.  Location, location, location.  We are living in paradise.  It’s usually 72 and sunny with ocean views and mountain views.  Unfortunately, we moved EVERYTHING to California.  … Read more »

I have always said “I can organize anything – but I cannot keep anything organized.”  Now I know why – no underlying systems. I have attended a few… Read more »

Slow but worth it!

I am so excited to finally be able to post a before-after set of pictures for this space.  I started working on the room back in 2010 but life got in the way and not much got accomplished.  My photos were even featured on one of Lorie’s webinars and she gave me lots of great… Read more »

The Laundry Room had become a catch-all!

I made a plan. First I went to the store and bought 5 large tubs in three different colors. Next I wiped down the washer and dryer and organized the cabinets above them. The next day I sorted everything on the right side of the room. I set up a tub for all of the… Read more »
