I’m all about simplifying your life! I truly believe life is a lot better when you know what you have and where it is in your home.
My Approach to Organizing
I started Organizing by Doreen in 2004.
My approach is to create simple solutions for customers who need to organize their belongings to prepare for a move and gain control over living space. Taking into account individual preferences and abilities, I customize each solution for every client.
I will also take special care to teach you how to stay organized. It isn’t enough to organize files; a person needs to understand how to use a file setup and learn new habits and routines. It’s the investment to learn new skills and drop old habits that led to clutter.
People who make these simple changes tell me they feel less stress and are more comfortable in their homes. People who were once too embarrassed are now excited to invite people to show off their organized, clutter free homes.
My clients tell me they can now find things quickly. Some have saved money by getting bills paid on time –eliminating late fees, not buying new supplies to replace those that were lost, while others found money in the form of loose change, bills, and even stock records hidden under piles of paper!
