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...

If you are having trouble in the morning deciding what to wear due to our crazy weather patterns, join the club! Sometimes I find myself changing clothes mid-day! These last few days of nice weather are a great time to prepare for the layers you will soon need.

The June 2013 Angie's List Magazine featured the Organizing 4 U team in an article "NEO Organizers help declutter homes and lives." (click here) In it we are quoted as saying "Most jobs focus on finding a place to store items rather than throwing them away." This pretty much sums up what we do. However, even when we are meeting with someone for the first time during a free estimate to discuss their...

As many of you know, the two of us serve on the Hoarding Connection of Cuyahoga County task force. This is a volunteer effort which we feel strongly about - the task force is committed to educating communities, first responders, social workers, and the general public about the importance of compassion and understanding when helping a person who hoards.
The Hoarding Connection is pleased to...
"April Fool!" said Mother Nature to Northern Ohio this year. In spite of her antics, we really do believe that Spring will arrive very, very soon. And when the weather does break, many of you will be heading out to the garden to prepare for the planting of vegatables and flowers. This month we are offering you tips to organize the garden corner of the garage. If you do not have an area dedicated to...

Many of our clients ask us for a better way to keep their desktop and filing areas from collecting so many piles! Having a clean desk top provides a calm and inviting area in which to work. So many of us avoid working at our desk because of the piles of bills, junk mail and other paper. Here are a few simple ways to create a system which works for you!
First, clear the desk of all papers and...
