I want to thank Melodee Patterson of Home Page Construction Co. for the wonderful testimonial. 

Here’s what Melodee had to say:

The guilt is gone! I can now walk through my basement storage area without cringing and thinking “I really need to clean this out and get it organized!” And it’s all due to Karen Doll of Organizing Madison.

Karen provided the impetus, the knowledge and the (wo)manpower to get the job done. She didn’t force her views of what I should or shouldn’t keep, but gently guided me to make the hard decisions. Her tips and suggestions were wonderfully helpful and tactfully given.

No matter what you need organized – basement, office, closet or garage – call Karen first. You’ll be happy you did!

“Organizing your Budget”


Knock, Knock, Your Life Wants In

Erica Ecker, “The Spacialist,” is a professional organizer in NYC.  She always has such wonderful things to say, but here’s a little something from her that I especially liked:

Knock Knock.

Who’s there?

Your life. Let me in!

 Lamenting how you’d like to have more room for your life? Perhaps you’d like to entertain spontaneously or actually enjoy a weekend without thinking about how much you need to get organized or even put your hands on your Fall jackets without frustration. Sounds good, doesn’t it?

 Magazine by magazine, iPod by iPhone and shoe by shoe, your clutter is stealing your space from you. Want to let your life back in? Then lighten your load!

 When you’re trying to trim your stuff, instead of thinking of it as “letting your things go”, think of it as “letting your life in”.

 With every square foot of stuff you move out, there is the possibility for more breathing room. (Take a deep breath now.) You’ll have easier access to the things you really love and efficient use of the things you need.  Go ahead now, let your life back in.

Until next time, may your life be organized and hassle-free,
