Hi  ,

      Happy New Year! I hope your 2018 is off to a good start. For me, January 2018 marks my 10th anniversary in business, and I’d like to take this time to thank all those who have helped me achieve this milestone.
      First of all I’d like to thank my clients both current and past. I’m impressed with your strength and courage to do what’s necessary to achieve your organizing goals. I am grateful for your trust in my ability to help you do that.
      Secondly, I’d like to thank all those who have taken one or more of my classes or attended a presentation. I appreciate your faith in my knowledge and expertise. I must also mention those groups and organizations who have asked me to teach or present. I’m grateful that you provided me with opportunities to share and teach on organizing topics that are relevant and significant.
      Thirdly, I’d like to thank the National Association of Productivity and Organizing Professionals for providing me with opportunities to become certified, to educate myself, to strengthen my skills, to gather valuable resources, and to connect with other Organizers.
      Lastly I’d like to thank those who have supported me in business, both personally and professionally. In addition to all the individual supporters, two organizations who deserve mention are the Women’s Business Network of Southeastern MA and the United Regional Chamber of Commerce. Thank you for your support throughout these 10 years.
      Although there is more gratitude I could express, I wanted to conclude by saying how sincerely grateful I am that my business has allowed me to facilitate positive change in my own life and the lives of others. Thank you all!

Help Veterans Organize

Helpful Organizer BlogI was thrilled to be interviewed by Rebecca Jennings, Town of North Attleboro, Veteran Service Officer on NorthTV on June 8, 2017 on a show called Veterans’ Forum. The half hour interview is about how I can help Veterans organize. I shared how I help my clients with their organizing, downsizing, and de-cluttering projects. I provide tips on how to start an organizing project, and how to use a five step process to get organized. I also share some helpful resources for donating and getting rid of stuff. It was exciting to be on my local TV channel. The interview can be viewed on YouTube. Want to see?

I am offering to help Veterans organize their homes in 2017. The offer is ten (10) complimentary hours of organizing with me, Janine Cavanaugh, CPO® ($600.00 value). For more information please email me.

Side Notes:

***  One thing that I like to do is take and share photos. Do you? How many photos do you think you have?  Research says that most families have about 60,000 photos on 5 or more devices. If you are feeling overwhelmed about organizing your photos, I can help with small projects, but the two companies listed below have experts that can help you organize, scan, and manage any number of photos on any number of devices.


Visit their website.

***  Question:  Do you have any funny organizing stories?  Please share.

Hi,

 Hope all is well with you. Are you enjoying 2017 so far? It seems like the year is flying by. I’m okay with that, because I have a fun summer trip planned. So, I’m excited that it is now only 2 months away. What about you, any plans?

 

What makes you laugh?

Actually, I just got back from a trip. I was in Pittsburgh, PA for the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO) Conference. I attended some inspiring sessions. One that I really liked was about brain clutter and how laughter can help. That gave me the idea to share some organizing cartoons with you. I hope you laugh, or at least, chuckle a little.

 

 

 

 

Recycle Resource

Finding new ways to reuse, recycle, and reduce for myself and my clients, makes me happy. Everyone is more motivated to get rid of something when they know it is going to someone who will really use it.

This is why I was happy to find Free Cycle. It’s a nonprofit movement that encourages people to reuse. The idea is to keep good, usable stuff out of landfills. It is an online community where people give and get stuff for free in their own towns and neighborhoods. Each local group is moderated by local volunteers and membership is free. Check it out.

yard sale

Yard Sale Charity Rule

Organizing tipWe’re entering yard sale season. If you’re planning on having one, follow this simple rule. Pick a charity before your yard sale and make a rule that all unsold items go directly to that charity. Nothing gets returned to the house, attic, basement, or garage. A few local charities that I support are St. Vincent De Paul, Habitat for Humanities ReStore, and Dorca’s International.

Decide to Decide

Organizing tipAre you procrastinating and making excuses for holding onto stuff? Are you clinging to material possessions for no good reason? Things that are merely taking up valuable space aren’t worth holding onto. Decide to decide, and let go of these things. You’ll feel lighter and brighter.
