And With A Wave Of Her Wand...
I LOVE Groupon!! Last year I bought a voucher for a 3 hour professional organizer for $35. I had a year until it expired. Last year I was no where near ready to organize. I was in survival mode with baby number 3, a 1 year old, and a 4 year old.
I'm back to myself and roaring to get back in the game!!! Last month I finally scheduled the appointment. I LOVE my organizer, Noa Simmons, from Noa Noa Design Solutions. She is delightful and works her magic quickly. For the initial 3 hour organizing project I chose my kitchen. If you read my blog, you know I cook a lot!!!
It wasn't until we finished up with the kitchen that I knew I had to have her return. Really, I had no idea just how badly I needed her help until we finished the kitchen. I actually had an empty drawer and shelf when she finished! I have had her come back 3 more times. We are going though this house room by room, closet by closet. And then last but not least we'll tackle the garage. I need order in this place with my 3 little people that are always getting into things and making more "mommy" work. Organized space has made an astonishing difference!
For the past few weeks I have neglected my blog as I have had "pre" organizing work to do. I have to organize my mess so Noa can organize the room! It's been fun to read letters from old friends and find treasures I thought were lost forever. It has also been fabulous to complete projects I have wanted to tackle for years. My husband and I painted his office and I have cleaned almost every square inch of this house in the organizing process.
I hope to be back to my regularly scheduled blog posts tomorrow. For now I"ll leave you with a picture of today's project, a newly vacant room which will become my craft room. We focused on the closet. The closet is the catch-all for my hobby supplies: painting, sewing, scrapbooking, crocheting and a few others. Ahhh. I now have all kinds of space. I might even take on a NEW hobby. See, I have room for more junk!!!
I would highly recommend Noa for any friends that live in the Austin area. She is just a lovely person with a great skill of organization and design. LOVE her!! Here is her website and phone number. www.noanoadesign.com 512-739-1267
Oh, and if you don't know about Groupon, here is a link to check it out. Groupon sends out daily emails with deals at least 50-90 percent off of retail. Great stuff!!!
Off to finish a few odds and ends left. What a difference an organizer makes!
