Marilee Hixon of Organized Solutions attended and spoke at the Arizona Home & Garden Show at the Arizona State Fairgrounds in January, 2019. Marilee is a professional organizer and a member of NAPO (National Association of Productivity and Organizing Professionals)/
She was interviewed on local TV and when asked when to get rid of old clothes, she replied, “If you haven’t worn certain clothes in over a year or more, it’s time to donate them” and added, “Reducing your clutter actually helps to reduce stress and bring more harmony into your life.” She presented several solutions in her booth and spoke to a group of attendees about reducing clutter. Some of the main topics and tips she covered were:
PROFESSIONAL HOME ORGANIZING – If you can no longer find things, you are wasting valuable time when you could be doing something you enjoy with your family. We help you declutter. We use things you may already have, like book shelves sitting in the garage or new containers, to help you categorize items categorize items, declutter, create zones and systems, find containers (like utilizing the shelves that she already had). We then begin discussing your new system and begin to create new habits.
PROFESSIONAL HOME OFFICE ORGANIZATION – The home office is one area that frequently suffers the most from clutter. Because our lives have become so busy, the last thing we want to do is file away a paper or even worse… a pile of papers! By creating an effective system, Organized Solutions can eliminate this frustration. I don’t mean just a filing system, I mean an entire new set of habits that feel good and natural and fit your schedule and work load. They design a system that fits you. This can actually take some time because one size does not fit all. When you see the difference, you will be forever grateful!
PROFESSIONAL CLOSET ORGANIZATION – The closet can often times be referred to as our enemy. The place where too many clothes and shoes are deposited, because they were on sale so you bought them, or one day you will fit into that size again. It has also been said that most people wear 20% of their clothes 80% of the time. When Marilee combines this frenzy of apparel with anything else like jewelry or gift wrapping or holiday decorations or anything else, you can cram into this space… well it is certainly not a welcoming sight. By using a 4- step system, you will learn techniques to declutter on a regular basis. “Like with Like” is a phrase you will become very accustomed to hearing along with “If I haven’t worn it or used it in a year, I probably don’t need it.”
PROFESSIONAL KITCHEN ORGANIZING – Kitchens are one of Marilee’s favorite spaces to organize, because she recognizes that the kitchen is a vital space in every home. This is not only where families gather, but kitchens are a central place for many different needs. Often times near the kitchen, I find this is where most people go when they first come home, dropping keys and mail, backpacks and purses. Having a control and command center is important. This can be in the kitchen, but this will just be one of the many important zones in the kitchen. Each cupboard will contribute heavily to the zone that it is located in.
