Lucy’s Domain

July 31, 2010

Meet Lucy!  She’s an ADORABLE miniature bulldog living with her owner, Jen, in a cute 1-bedroom apartment.  Though small in stature, Lucy is able to muster up great courage when she’s peaking out from under Jen’s wheelchair and standing on the foot pedals.  In fact, she recently protected Jen from impending harm by alerting Jen to a prowler on their patio!  Lucy is quite the smart canine for not even being 2 years old yet!

Lucy was our supervisor while we organized Jen’s apartment to be more “user-friendly” for Jen’s chair as well as to enlarge Lucy’s play area.  Mission accomplished thanks to Lucy’s great management style; she often encouraged “time to pet Lucy” breaks while we worked.  Our last opportunity to work under such awesome management was last week when we organized Jen’s office.  Now Lucy has plenty of room to roam the apartment protecting Jen, and of course, to play with her toys.  Check out these before and after pics of Jen’s office:

Great job Lucy!


Hands On Office Organization

July 15, 2010

Every client is different in their approach to getting rid of clutter.  Some say, “I don’t want to see what you do, just get rid of it and then show me how to keep the organization in place.”  (Some clients actually leave and come back at the end of the day.)  Many are involved by helping in the process when they can and/or being available to answer questions.  It’s always up to the client, but we remind them that the more they’re involved, the less it will cost them for our services.

This client made the most of her time and her investment in professional organization services by being “hands on” the entire time.  A retired Grandmother who now wants to devote her time to watching her cherub of a granddaughter and her super-friendly chihuahua named Killer, she needed her home office to be organized for bill paying and working on her multiple hobbies.  I’ll be returning once more to install some curtains on the windows, but I couldn’t wait to show the finished organization project.  Love the space created by this one!

Crafty Clutter Be Gone!

July 3, 2010
I am often asked what is my favorite area to organize.  While offices are my specialty, I really don’t have a huge favorite.  I’m more interested in what area needs my help the most.  This project was so much fun for Organized Chaos!  The homeowner is crafty–she scrapbooks, sews, quilts, and so much more.  The beginning pictures were actually taken after we had already removed some items, but I think you’ll agree that this room would make anyone want to take up crafting!  Here’s the “before” pictures:
And here’s the “after” shots:
