... Organization

High on my list of things I get excited about is organization. I love to put things in order. I was an avid stamp collector as a child and I remember spending hour after hour, week after week organizing and reorganizing my collection in various ways. I've built my life around it. I've even built a career out of it ~ I have clients who pay me to come into their home and reorder their lives (home, finances, etc) ... a life coach of sorts.

All that said, I just have to say OMG! to this lady's scrapbooking room. Jaw dropping, drool inducing organization. Very lovely.

Holy cow!!!!!!!!!! I need her...I need you. I need someone to come organize everything down to the cords. Sheesh.

PS your website is doing something weird whenever I try to access it through bloglines...it says that it is through ijm.org and then that the certificate is through plesk???? Don't really know what all that means. Just thought I would tell you because it only does it on yours no one elses

Hey,

So, that would be a dream job of mine...how do you get people to hire you to organize them???

Lizzy said...

i too LOVE organizing!!

Judy said...

Wow!!! She can come to my house & do all of my closets. I love organization too, but I have a tendency to stuff things away & keep clutter hidden.

Oh my gosh! I've only heard rumors of people actually being that organized! That was simply unbelievable... to say the least!

I agree, *Applause* to Amanda

My scrapbooking stuff is just as organized. Granted, all of it fits in one three drawer cart from Target...Is nobody else blown away by the amount of Scrapbooking stuff in that room?

There was a time in my life when I was very organized. Unfortunatley, those days are over and I now live with heaps of clutter and chaos. I hardly notice it anymore and then I see pictures like those and I want to run to the yellow pages and find an Organizer....

Wow, I will never be like that, no matter how hard i try, also, great lenses!

Hey Bethany -- no idea why its doing that? I asked Jeff (he designs and manages sites) and he didn't know either? Hmmm...

Wendy -- How did I get into that? Well, for the past 10 years or so I've been offering people/families financial counseling/advice. Anywhere from helping with budgets to them signing over power of attorney to me.
Then I moved onto businesses where I'd be hired as a consultant to review how they run and offer advice on how they could operate more smoothly (financial, efficiency, etc.).
Then one day the owner of a company I was working for asked if I'd go into his home and help his wife in the same manner. Then it spread word of mouth from there. Not something I planned on, but something I love nonetheless.

I want that! Not 'cause I scrapbook, but 'cause dang, all that craft stuff sure looks inspiring!

Jennifer said...

Um, Michelle, you're leaving me here to drool on my laptop... cruel and unusual punishment unless you were trying to tell me that you're going to organize my craft corner in the office into that :) hee hee.... seriously though... if you're needing a place to organize you have free reign in my house. I need help... especially because I can't unpack a single box!

Love,

Jennifer
