The Road to Kid Clutter
I'm a firm believer that you can't know where you're going until you know where you've been. I know exactly why people have gotten stuck trying to get organized and in this module, we take a look at the entire picture of your lifestyle, your communication with your family, and your goals and expectations for organizing.
This is about gaining a deeper understanding of the "Why" and "How" clutter happens in your home and how to move forward from this point.

Janelle is great with kids and was able to get them to participate in organizing willingly. I found out that some systems I created for them were not working. She created an atmosphere where the kids were in charge and comfortable enough to talk through the whys, whats, and where's.
As a result, my kids can prioritize their items, space, and time much better. The kids play with more of their toys, read more, use their imagination more and view their rooms as a place of their making. It's been roughly two months since the kids organized their rooms and toys/games area and all systems are still in place. We have more time to do rather than taking up a lot of time literally and mentally looking for things or clearing space to do things. We have less stress and more time together now.

We had a great experience working with Janelle! She is thoughtful, detailed, and she provided ideas so we can continue to organize and declutter each room in our house. Having her in our home for one day inspired our 10 and 12-year-old daughters to donate several bags of clothes and toys and organize their own bedrooms.
