Who's That Girl?
Hey Friends! I'm Jessica.
I love people. I love organizing stuff. And I love to laugh and make others laugh, too.
In college, I majored in science and
minored in musical theater.
So I am equally into putting things in neatly labelled boxes and for doing jazz hands. Seriously, you can ask the kids I taught science to.
You can think of me as your home organizing guru /coach /cheerleader /stand-up comedian.
As we work together to organize your home, we are going to do some hard work.
And it will change your life.
But we are also going to laugh.
Because people are hilarious and
getting organized is fun!
So let's tidy up! This is going to be a blast.
Kind Words From My Clients
Jessica made the tension that tends to accompany the KonMari™ Method non-existent as she honored my personal process.
I never felt judged, rushed or shamed, but rather guided toward solid, healthy decisions with
humor and grace.
She answered my questions and encouraged me beautifully.
I wouldn't want to work
alongside anyone else!
Completely overwhelmed, we needed help purging and organizing our home of 20 years.
Jessica's contagious exuberance, patient guidance and fun-loving personality made the task much less daunting. The entire process altered our vision for our home and family, and we continue to apply the principles of the KonMari Method™ that Jessica taught to us daily.
We highly recommend Jessica and her services to help you tidy up your home and your life!
Jessica has a uniquely fun and supportive way of approaching home organization.
I still regularly use the skills I learned to declutter my house, and my brain!
What we accomplished together in one hour takes me one week. I highly recommend her services!
Questions Clients Ask
How Do I
How Do I Start Decluttering My Home?
This answer is going to sound odd at first,
but stick with me.
The first step in decluttering your home is to ask yourself, “Why do I want to be organized?” Until you can clearly identify your reasons for wanting to change this area of your life, you will lose momentum as soon as the work gets hard. Making significant changes in any area of your life is hard work.
If it wasn't, you would have done it already.
Therefore, the first thing I invite KonMari™ Method clients to do is imagine their ideal lifestyle.
What Is The
Traditional Home Organizing and the
KonMari™ Method of Home Organizing?
What Is The Difference Between
Traditional Home Organizing
and the KonMari™ Method ?
The main difference is the amount of time spent organizing and the longevity of the results.
Traditional Home Organizing:
Home is organized one room at at time.
Offers quicker results, but often with a shorter lifespan.
KonMari™ Method Home Organizing:
Entire home is organized by category.
Offers slower results that last a lifetime.
KonMari™ Method Really Work?
Does the KonMari™ Method Really Work?
Yes! But, for the method to be effective you must:
1. Declutter in order and by category.
2. Use the feeling of joy as your main qualifier for keeping or discarding your belongings.
3. Wait to finalize storage until the very end.
4. Complete the process, organizing your entire home.
5. Find more joy living in an organized home than living in a cluttered home.
Why Declutter First and Store Later?
People often think more storage or better storage is the solution to their organizational dilemma. However, this is rarely the case.
By decluttering first, not only will you greatly reduce the number of items you need to store, but you may be surprised to find most of the storage space/items you need already exist in your home.
Does It Take To Do The KonMari™ Method?
How Long Does It Take To Do The KonMari™ Method?
There two main factors that go into determining how long it will take to organize your entire home using
the KonMari™ Method.
Factor 1: You. How quickly can you decide whether to keep or discard an item? How much time are you able to commit to the organizing process?
Factor 2: Your Home. How many square feet? Number of rooms? How tightly packed are your belongings?
It is recommended that you complete the process as quickly as possible so that you do not lose momentum. Most people finish their entire home within 3 months.
