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.
1) Creat a tax folder for 2104 if you have not done so already. All tax forms you have received, or will receive in the next few weeks,...

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...

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...

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...
