Simplifying A-Z: F – Free

Posted by SimplifyMe on August 11, 2015 in Decluttering |

F – Free No matter what it is, if it’s free, we want it! Americans are guilty of accepting anything and everything that’s labeled ‘free’. Whether it’s free samples of broccoli casserole at the grocery store (even though we don’t like broccoli), or a free dollop of lotion tucked inside a tiny packet in a […]

The alphabet of organizing! Or, how to simplify your life one letter at a time! B-Bargain But it’s such a bargain! How many times have we all said this when faced with deciding whether to buy an item that we KNOW we don’t really need? We try to convince the rational and organized part of […]

Clutter Free Holidays

Posted by SimplifyMe on December 23, 2013 in Decluttering, Organizing, Simplify |

Do you dread the holidays? I’ve heard many people over the years, tell me about their not-so-jolly holiday problems. For some, it’s disliking being alone, and for others it’s dreading being with family. Some hate all the hustle and bustle of the season and others get overwhelmed by all the ‘thoughtful’ gifts that need to […]

My mother has lost a significant amount of […]

Last month I had the unhappy task of beginning to clear out my grandmothers’ apartment, where she’s lived for close to 22 years. After falling and breaking her hip last November, she has become unable to live on her own. She has had surgery and we were holding on to the hope that with enough […]

Storage space, or lack thereof, is always a problem. We think of space as being infinite (or the final frontier). But while outer space may be limitless, the space in your home and office is not. The most crucial part of organizing is the ability to let go of some things. For some, this is […]
