Hi! I’m your organizer, Kathleen.
If you're overwhelmed or fed up with all the stuff in your home, you've come to the right place. I'm so glad that our paths have crossed. Now, you can finally get organized and stay that way. Let's get started!
Who am I?
Well, I'm your organizer, Kathleen, of course!
"Your" organizer, because I'm committed to helping you reach your full potential through organization!
I'm like a tidy guide by your side. You can count on me to share ideas, resources and inspiration that will help you get organized.
Because, it's not just about your stuff. It's about your well-being.
What do I do?
I help busy moms reclaim any out of control, unusable space and turn it into a fabulous one that they love.
How do I do it?
I break down home organizing projects into simple steps.
Everything gets laid out for you in a custom plan. With checklists, floor layouts and product recommendations. You get plenty of visual inspiration to organize your space.
During our time together, we'll pin point which organizing styles you and your family have. Then, we'll go over what systems work best for your styles. And more importantly, which don't.
With that knowledge under your belt, keeping your newly organized space tidy will be a breeze.
All the guess work has been taken out for you. Leaving the stress behind and doubling down on amazing results. You'll be sparkin' more joy in no time!
Where do I do it?
I offer hands-on organizing to families in Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario and surrounding areas.
Not near KW? I've got you covered with DIY organizing plans, custom made, just for you. All you need to get started are pictures of your space and room measurements.
I also offer virtual organizing sessions which can be done from anywhere in the world. For this, all you need is a web cam, pictures of your space and room measurements.
Why I do it?
Clutter, does more harm than good. Unhealthier eating. Lower focus and productivity. Poor mental health. And to top it all off? Lower subjective well-being.
That's why I do it. It's a form of self-care that can make a world of difference.
As a busy mom, you're probably trying to keep everything in your life in harmony. Balancing work, kids, relationships, pets and health. Your family depends on you. With your busy schedule you want to make sure that the time you do spend together is quality time.
When you're feeling calm and collected, it's easier for you to be yourself and have fun with your family. When you're stressed it's not as easy. I don't know about you but... I can get pretty crabby if I'm stressed.
The bottom line: Self-care is important for everyone. But since you're a busy mom, you're at higher risk of burn out. That's where organizing comes in. It makes life easier to manage, rain or shine.
Order in your home helps you to stay on your game during stressful times, happy times and all the times in-between. When you streamline your space, it's one of the best forms of self-care. It gives you the time and allows you to focus on what really matters to you.
I've been on the other side. With so much on my plate I was struggling just to get dinner on the table at a decent time. What was making it so difficult?
At that time, prioritizing and organizing weren't my strong suit. And it was resulting in lots of clutter. If that sounds like you, you're in luck, because...
Organizing is a skill that can be learned and improves with practice. I've gone from disorganized to organized and I can help you do it too.
Decluttering is not just about your stuff. It's about your well-being.
