Live simply. Simply live.

"Some small victories aren't so small after all" is a phrase I have come to embrace in both my personal and professional life. Haven't we all have faced a impossible feat and felt that it was just "way too big and nasty" to conquer? We then talk ourselves out of even trying, and what happens? Big and nasty wins! However, with a little guidance, and a new attitude, we all can conquer those once-thought-impossible feats through many small victories. Tangible results emerge, confidence builds, momentum is created. Now the impossible is gone!

It all starts with a first, courageous step.

Learn to keep what you love, what brings you happiness and start to live better.
Sometimes you need an objective, experienced opinion to help you just move forward. Professional organizer Judy O'Heare will offer this much needed opinion, or help you discover options you would not have known on your own. Judy and her team are well-connected and resourceful professionals who have special arrangements with other businesses to get tasks done for you faster, cheaper and more efficiently than had you done them by yourself. When entrusted with your belongings, we are sensitive that organizing can bring up anxiety and emotional issues. Decluttering is rarely as easy as "just throwing out" or "anything you haven't used should just go". The truth is, it's just not that simple. Just as there are professionals who help with taxes, real estate, legal matters, and coaching, there are those whose profession it is to help others clean out homes and help them run better.

Judy helps those who are disorganized, as well as those who wish to avoid clutter, confusion, and want an organized way to live. Principles of the ancient art of Feng Shui echo in professional organizing through freeing living spaces from negative, energy consuming items and keeping what is purposeful and what brings joy. Perhaps there are beautiful, useful items that are hidden by large unopened boxes. Perhaps there are beautiful clothes that cannot be enjoyed because they're stored away in containers in an attic. Perhaps one partner is messier than the other and this dynamic causes constant friction. Perhaps, there has been a major life change and downsizing or right-sizing is needed to allow forward movement. It is certainly helpful having an objective professional to find a solution that is workable for everyone that brings function, beauty and balance into the space! Whatever the circumstance, Judy's goal is to return your home to being a relaxing, welcoming, beautiful, and stress-free place.
Whether you:
• Don't know how to get organized;
• Don't know where to start on your own;
• You don't have time to do it on your own; or
• You don't want to do it yourself

consider the value of Judy helping you through a task and setting up a customized system that eliminates frustration and makes your life easier.
