HOW LIFE WITH LESS MESS CAME TO BE
I love to organize. Not only that, I like to take an inefficient, chaotic space and transform it into something functional. And I REALLY love a good before and after. While I've always loved being organized, I first recognized the important role it could play when I was a teacher. Organizing, preparing, and rearranging my classroom was a favorite past-time-- and it was essential for keeping 26 7-year-olds in check and on-task.
When I left teaching to become a stay at home mom, I realized that an organized home was an ally in fighting the chaos that accompanies raising children. As with anything, organizing is much more fun when it's done with friends, so I recruited friends to join me on the path to organization through a facebook group where we all organized our homes together, sharing our successes and frustrations. I also realized that organization and order could be taken a step further... They could be pretty!
Organizing comes naturally to me and creating order out of disorder is fun. It didn't occur to me for a long time that not everyone felt that way. When I realized that, I knew I could help others take control of their clutter and their lives.
And Life with Less Mess was born.
I enrolled in classes through NAPO (National Association of Productivity and Organizing Professionals) and became an official Professional Organizer. While I'm still learning the ins and outs of being a small business owner, I have met some amazing clients and fellow organizers. I love that each job is unique and that I'm making a difference in people's lives by helping them love their spaces and taking a burden off of them.
