Organization as a way of life
There is a saying “I am what I am”.
I am an organizer. I believe I was born an organizer. Along the way, I got sidetracked with several other careers but organizing has always been a part of my DNA. My mother loves to tell stories about my early attempts at organizing -- how I use to line my dolls up by height; how I loved to shop for and arrange all my back-to-school supplies; and her all time favorite, how she was once called into pre-school because I had disrupted the class by insisting on rearranging the classroom desks.
So it’s no surprise to anyone that knows me that my passion for order turned into a profession. It goes without saying that I love my job. I’m always amused by people’s reactions when I tell them what I do for a living. And of course the question they always ask “Is your house really organized?”
My house is a “test kitchen” for organizational products. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve switched out my closet hangers, retooled my dresser drawers or reworked my kitchen cabinets. I’m constantly trying out new bins in the garage or finding containers to use for my makeup and jewelry. I don’t let myself be limited by what the container is supposed to be used for – DVD bins work really well in deep bathroom drawers and newspaper baskets make great storage for that sock aficionado in your family. I’m always on the lookout for the latest gadgets and I look at every client as a new opportunity to hone my organizational skills.
That is why I am so excited about this blog. It gives me a chance to reach out to everyone out there who loves to organize like I do. I encourage all of you to write to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and share your thoughts, ideas and product discoveries on organizing. You never know what we may discover along the way, but then, that’s what makes the journey worth taking.
