Erin Elizabeth Wells, Founder and CEO of Living Peace Professional Organizing, offers some simple tips for keeping your filing system easy to interact with.
I have found a common trend when going into a client’s home for the first time. When we as organizers offer suggestions about moving or removing furniture in order to make more space, the clients are surprised by the ideas. When we live in a space day after day, we often overlook the options for improvement. Even a friend may not be able to offer a fresh perspective if the friend is familiar with the space.
If you are feeling stumped with a space, consider bringing in a fresh set of eyes to give you a new perspective. While we as organizers are not interior designers, we can offer suggestions about how furniture may or may not be working in the space. We can then take the work a step further and help you to keep only the items that you want to be surrounded by.
