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 Favorite Things

Posted by SimplifyMe on March 25, 2013 in Decluttering, Organizing, Simplify |

No, I will not break into song, although The Sound of Music is one of my favorite movies (that may be a bit TMI), but I am in the process of compiling a list of organizing products that make me feel better when I’m sad (yes, organizers are strange…I know, I know) and thought I […]

Getting to the Bottom of the Closet

Posted by SimplifyMe on October 31, 2012 in Decluttering, Organizing |

I recently took a trip to see my family, in Texas, for my mother’s birthday. Since I was not working those days and had the chance to relax and unwind, I took the opportunity to organize my mother’s wardrobe (yes, it’s an illness, albeit a useful one!). My mother has lost a significant amount of […]



Downsizing for Life

Posted by SimplifyMe on July 19, 2012 in Decluttering, Organizing, Simplify |

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 […]



Ye of Little Space

Posted by SimplifyMe on June 1, 2012 in Decluttering, Organizing |

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 […]


Move It!

Posted by SimplifyMe on May 1, 2012 in Decluttering, Organizing |

Summer is upon us, which is a great time for moving or hanging out at the beach, but since I’m not a travel writer, we’ll leave that topic for someone else! The kiddos are almost out of school, and the weather is conducive to moving stuff without worrying about your paper birds of the world […]


Toys (not child’s play!)

Posted by SimplifyMe on April 16, 2012 in Decluttering, Organizing |

I’ll begin by saying, no, I don’t have children, but I used to be one (albeit a freakishly organized one) and (a little known fact) I used to teach preschool, so I know this: kids make messes! It’ their job, and if they were getting paid for it, we would have a bunch of tiny […]


It’s that time again…

Posted by SimplifyMe on March 14, 2012 in Decluttering, Organizing |

Nope, not time for your annual too-private-to-discuss-in-an-organizing-blog exam (although, I don’t know, it may be). It’s Spring (or at least it feels that way here in Denver) and it’s time to get organized. There is a reason they call it Spring Cleaning. I recently did a deep cleaning of my place and when I told […]




Posted by SimplifyMe on January 23, 2012 in Decluttering, Organizing, Simplify |

This is my first business blog, and I’m excited to start the new year off by helping people get organized and less stressed! So here goes… Do you ever get overwhelmed? Ok, it’s a dumb question because I know the answer to it already. But just by asking the question, I’ve gotten you thinking about […]
