Clutter robs you of so many things—like peace, harmony, focus and motivation. But no longer! Starting today, we are going to turn your messy house around. I guarantee that if we work together for the next six months, you will have a clutter-free, organized home that is the sanctuary and haven that you deserve.
As we go, we'll focus on the places of your house that are the most pressing. In December, I'll help you make sure that you're ready for all of that holiday company. Together, we'll work on defining the zones and the activity that you want from each room.
And even though you won't get your first big assignment until December 1, I want you to do something for me today—find your camera. I want you to embrace your mess and take plenty of "before" photos (so don't tidy up before you break out the camera). When you've cleared the space I want you to be able to see the progress you've made. Plus, I can comment on your photos as we go and help you out with any trouble spots you might hit.
I know this sounds high falutin' but I also want you to define a vision for the home and the life you want to live. Here's the deal—think about what you want from your space. Do you want to feel peaceful? Are you looking for a place where your whole family can spend time together? Need a reading nook or a place to spend some quality "me time" with yourself? Whatever you decide, that has to be the criteria for deciding whether something stays or goes.
When you open the space in your house, when you clear it and only have the things that you love and need and use, you will be astounded at the blessings that flow into that space. I guarantee it.
