We hope you are all off to a great start of the new year! At this time of the year, however, we find many of our clients are searching for organizing tips that will help them be even more successful in the coming year.
Our first tip is to commit to being"on time" for appointments, school, work and other events. Arriving on time boils down to good time management techniques and the use of a calendar!...
We wish you a Happy, Healthy
and Organized New Year!
Many of you have made a New Year's Resolution to GET ORGANIZED in 2016, and we are here to help you achieve your goals. The path to being more organized is achievable if you follow just 3 simple steps.

Organizing 4 U is proud to announce our new Home Inventory service. Let us create a photo or video inventory of all of your belongings. Here is why a home inventory is good idea for all of us....
Last summer's flooding left many of our friends and clients with a total loss in their basements and a big mess! Facebook was full of pictures of treelawns filled with couches, chairs, toys and carpets....
Recently we have shared our SIMPLE Time Management techniques with college freshmen and Realtors. Just as each presentation was geared to a different audience, we will share the same techniques to guide you through the upcoming Holiday Season.

Over the last few weeks, Organizing 4 U has been helping several clients to downsize their homes. For some, this is planning ahead for a future move to a smaller place but for most it is due to an immenent move out of town, to a retirement community or to an assisted living arrangement.
The process of downsizing one's possessions sounds like it should not be that hard, right? Just look around...
When someone calls us for assistance with an organizing project it is because they are
Getting to this point was gradual as they added some items to a spare room, the dining room table or the basement. They said "I'll get to that later." Then later comes and they just don't know where to start. We provide hands-on help by giving them a jump start on the project or completing all of the organizing...
Over the last few weeks we have seen clients who have too much paper in their homes and offices. Despite the movement to go "paperless", many of us still like to print out emails and handle a real piece of paper. Don't know what to keep and how long to keep it? Just keep on reading...
Eliminating junk mail is a great way to reduce the paper before it even comes into the house. DMA Choice (by...
Did you ever notice our tag line?
.....making life simple
We started using this phrase when we established our business in 2003 because we felt it embodied what we wanted Organizing 4 U to bring to our customers. When we are first contacted by someone, 100% (at least 98%) state they are overwhelmed and need some help in their home or business. We provide the hands-on assistance and solutions...
Do you and your family have a wish list of activities, outings and vacations you would like to do this summer? Ever put off the planning and realize school starts in a few weeks and you have not figured out where to go on vacation?
If you do plan to take a vacation, choose the week now and make sure everyone is free...put the dates on the calendar to keep those days clear. If you need to book...
I'm a hoarder, and I need to move in two weeks.
I have hoarding tendencies and I need help!
I need help for my mother who I think is a hoarder.
My landlord is going to evict me----HELP!
These are some actual requests that we have received over our 12 years in the Professional Organizing business. Sometimes the situation has reached the level of hoarding, and other times...
"I never seem to be able to get anything done except when you two are here", lamented one client of ours the other day. We assured her this feeling is shared by many of our customers!
Whether you have a closet that needs help, a filing system that is not working, time management issues, or simply too much stuff, a professional organizer can help. We remind people that hiring plumbers, electricians...
Another snowy day in Northeast Ohio causes some doubt that Spring is almost here. But it really is March and it is good to know that things will be warming up soon. This month we will answer another question from you about storing like with like when deciding on homes for things. We will take this concept a bit further, and say
"Store like things together close to where you will be using them."
Believe it or not, it's tax time again! We hope you have incorporated some of our tips throughout the year into your daily processes, all of which should help make it easier to gather the information for your tax return. Here are a few tips which we find useful.

Have you thought about what your New Year's resolutions will be? For those who choose some, the second most popular choice is to become better organized! (The first being to lose weight). Perhaps that is why our National Association of Professional Organizisers (NAPO) chose January as Get Organized Month...
We find that our clients wish they had better control of the paper that flows in and...
Well, there is no denying it now....November is here and the end of the year holidays are upon us. Traditionally this is a time when many of us do some extra entertaining and baking.
Our advice for a less stressful season in the kitchen would be to select your menus and recipes as soon as possible. The next step would be to check your cupboard to make sure that you have all the necessary ingredients...
It's still quite warm out, but Fall has arrived! And with that change of season comes the necessity of a change of clothes...if you are like me, my main closet is too small for all of my clothes and I must bring my cold weather clothes down from the attic.
While changing your closet around can be a bit of pain, look at it as an opportunity to make some changes. Instead of packing away all of...
It is Labor Day weekend and that means it is Organizing 4 U's anniversary! We are 11 years old and still going strong, thanks to all of our clients, supporters and friends!!!! We are so grateful to all of you and hope that you will call us again this coming year.
We are finding it hard to swallow that fall is fast approaching. With the hot weather of the last few days, it is even harder to think...
What an ugly photograph!!! This month we want to do our part to limit the amount of electronic equipment ending up in a land-fill.
Do you have a lot of old computers, monitors and various sizes of disks laying around your home or office? Rest assured, you are not alone! We have seen a lot of those items during the past few weeks. And if you have been wondering how to safely dispose of them...
A friend of ours recently forwarded an article from the New York Times that we would like to share with you. In his essay Let Me Count the Days, James Collins performs some mathematical computations and realizes that he "owned more staples than I could possibly is in my lifetime, or several of my lifetimes." He goes on to say that "Nothing says mortality like the realization that you will live only...
JoEllen and I just returned from Phoenix where we attended a conference for Professional Organizers. Not only were there over 500 organizers from the U.S., we had attendees from Japan, Australia, Belgum, Canada and many more exotic places!
The universal theme was "How can we as professional organizers help our clients to envision their ideal spaces, systems and lifestyles." All of our clients...
"Show to whom?", you ask.... Friends who might drop by? Family? Or even yourself! This month our tips will focus on showing your home to potential buyers. But even if you are not in the process of preparing your home for sale, our tips are still useful as a guide to decluttering any space.
Over the past few months we have been helping several clients prepare for an up-coming move. Often that...
Had we not started Organizing 4 U, JoEllen and I would have loved to own a bookstore. We love to read! And like you, we have many books, newspapers and magazines and now on-line favorites. Figuring out where to keep all of this reading material can be challenging.
When we enter a new home or office, we tend to look up in every room. So many of us fail to utilize our vertical space. Adding bookcases...
We have worked with a lot of individuals who are creative, and as you may know, the creative side of the brain does not always communicate well with the organizing side of the brain. Some of our customers have been professional artists, some devote a lot of time to a hobby, and others are developing the artistic skills of their children. Whatever the situation, we are called upon to organize the supplies...
Procrastination is defined as the act of putting off or delaying, especially something requiring immediate attention. Does this sound like something you do some of the time, or even frequently?
Whether you tend to put off doing unpleasant tasks from time to time, or do so more often than not, there is a way to tackle procrastination! The first step in changing this behavior is understanding...
