Happy Holidays!
Would you like to experience the holiday season with less stress than in previous years? Our tagline for our business is "making life simple" and we use the word simple often to outline ideas for how to achieve a simpler approach to things. Follow along and see if any of these ideas resonate with you!
Simplify your holiday by cutting back on something you normally do which...
Have piles of Halloween Candy left over? Or maybe you have a little (or a lot) more than you need. You don't need to be wasteful and throw it away, there are actually many places that it an be donated. Here are a few we found that have local drop off locations:
Contact your local Ronald McDonald House to learn of drop-off locations. In the Cleveland area, the Ronald McDonald House at 10415...
The leaves are turning colors, the pumpkins and Halloween candy are in the stores, and it's a great time to start planning ahead for all of the upcoming holidays! Want to reduce your stress levels, find extra time close to the holidays, and save money? Then read on....
Stock up now on the Halloween candy while the sales are on and there is a variety of choices - the closer you get to the 31st,...
WOW! The Summer just flew by, didn't it? We hope that you had plenty of time to enjoy some fun outdoor activities during this beautiful weather here in Northeast Ohio. May it all continue into the Fall season.
This month we are taking a break from the usual organizing tips to suggest you curl up with a good book. Want to know more about the day to day activities of a Professional Organizer?...
While it is only the beginning of August, it is the perfect time to get organized for sending your students back to school! Ohio's Sales Tax Holiday is this weekend, August 2-4, and with some limits, many supplies and clothes will be tax free. Organizing now can save you time and money.
As part of this preparation, set aside some time to finally clean out the back packs from this past year....

It's not too late to create a better system for your summer clothes! June was the craziest month weather wise and we hardly wore our summer clothes compared to pants and long sleeves. But now that the heat appears to be here to stay, your summer items should be front and center.
Many of our clients say they have too many clothes in their closets, items get lost, and new clothes with...
What a wonderful time of year in Northeast Ohio! The seemingly never ending rain has given us a lush landscape, and we are already enjoying the flowers, birds and butterflies this season brings. This is also a time when we all want to enjoy the many activities that summer will bring. Are you ready?
The family vacation may already be on the calendar, but be sure to make a list and/or mark your...
In the past few weeks we have had a number of clients express surprise at some of the services we offer, saying "I didn't know you did that"! So, we thought this might be a good place to highlight all of the things we can do to help you in your home, your office and your life.
Preparing a Home for Sale: We will help you to review things in your home to decide where they will go in the new home...
The good news is that Spring has officially arrived…..and we all know the bad news….there will likely be more snow (sorry, that is probably not an April Fool), but hopefully not of blizzard proportions.
Here in Northeast Ohio we may have snow emergencies, but are fortunate not to be concerned with hurricanes and earthquakes. However, with the advent of a new season, there are...
Have you noticed that everywhere you turn you see Marie Kondo? Her Netflix series, Tidying Up With Marie Kondo, is a favorite topic of conversation at the dinner table and on social media. If you don't subscribe to Netflix, not to worry, her methods have sparked many articles in newspapers and magazines. There are also videos on YouTube. All of this has again brought attention to her Kon Mari Method...
January was National Get Organized Month! Did you get better organized last month? It's likely you made a New Year's resolution to get organized or to lose weight - very popular choices! So, here are a few tips for 2019 in case you want to work on your organizing skills this year.
We love to help people become better organized with their finances - this can help you save time, money (no late...
The new year, and everyone is talking about New Year's Resolutions----and so it seems, are we. A new year is a marker we all share. It is only natural that we reflect on the past year, and anticipate the next thinking about the positive areas of our lives we want to keep, as well as the ones that need improvement. So, make a resolution......or set a new goal and make things happen. That goal could...
"Tis the season for giving!" Not only do retail stores capitalize on this, so do the charities offering a tax deduction before year end. These charitable solicitations come from many places - phone, the mail, and even on your computer and mobile phone!
Do you receive lots of requests from charities you have never heard of or donated to previously? Do you feel guilty about not giving to those...
Mise en place. Just like 'dostadning'', this is another word that will help with organizing, but we are unable to pronounce it (well, at least many of us cannot). In a recent article, The Secret to Cooking, author Daniel Neman states that mise en place is “one of the first things you are taught in culinary school, and the structure on which all other cooking stands.” Very simply it means...
This summer we have been in many homes where memorabiliba is a focus for at least part of our time. So many of us have photos - hard copy and digital - which may be all in one place but are far from organized. Or, they may be all over the house in drawers and cupboards, just waiting for the "right time" to start organizing them!
Memorabilia is an important link to all that has happened to us...
You have probably heard us say that when organizing, it is best to "Start Small". Starting small could be setting a timer for 10 or 15 minutes and focusing on one project. Starting small could also be focusing on one pile, or shelf or drawer at a time. But even though that focus is small, it is still often hard to get started, especially when the task is overwhelming.
We have recently seen some...
Summer has officially arrived and the kids are home for the summer. Whether your children are still living at home or just in town for the summer, now is a great time to help them downsize!
We recently worked with a client and her young daughter to clear out old clothes which no longer fit, to find toys she could donate and to prepare her space for the new bedroom set she will get soon. Despite...

Although Summer doesn't 'officially' begin for another 3 weeks, we have already begun many of the festivities over the Memorial Day Weekend. Now, we look to the next three months of enjoying all those special moments that summer holds in store: vacations, summer camp, bar-b-ques, picnics, outdoor concerts, art fairs, friends and family visiting, trips to the beach and pool, amusement parks.... The...
Spring has finally sprung! We just love to see the flowers popping up, the sun shining down and the smell of newly cut grass. For our business, it is also our busy season! Spring cleaning is taken to an even higher level as many get inspired to clear their clutter.
Some of our clients are calling because they have been inspired by two recent books; "The Gentle Art of Swedish Death Cleaning:How...
In honor of April Fools Day, we thought we would provide some humor about our services.
The Organizing 4 U team only works with individuals who hoard. April Fool! This is definitely not true. In fact most of those we work with are in need of our services because they are overwhelmed due to a situation in their lives that interfered with, and upset, the normal routine. The situations include...
