This is part 3 in a series about not using your home as a storage unit. In part 1, we discussed how your home should be for living; it should be filled with items that you use now and enjoy having around. In part 2, we reflected on whether or not we were storing any items for non-household members and what our motivations were behind those decisions. If feelings of resentment surface, this is a sign that it may be time to make some changes. In part 3, we will discuss how to set boundaries with those non-household members.
Looking to set up some more structure as we move into the new school year?
As a veteran teacher turned home organizer, I offer a variety of resources to help you get organized for school. Getting physically organized and creating spaces for work and school can help you to feel more calm and in control. There are a lot of unknowns right now. Spending some time preparing can be very helpful.
I am giving several small group Zoom Workshops for parents of grades 3-6 and grades 6-8. We will discuss ways to arrange desks, set up routines, and get your family ready for school. Learn how to create a paper station and a family calendar. Setting expectations and routines are key for creating good work environments for everyone.
If you would like more support, I offer one-on-one virtual sessions to help you get organized. The topic is up to you but can include getting ready for school, organizing with your kids, or decluttering your own office. These are one-on-one sessions on your device. We can use the time to create DIY plans for you or we can declutter and reorganize together.
My name is Laura, and I love all things organizing!
