Clutter-free Gift Guide – 2018 Edition

A very popular post on the blog last year was a clutter-free gift guide, and that is why we decided to bring it to you again. The 2018 holiday gift guide edition brings you some new and old experiences and services in the area.

Why to hire a Professional Organizer?

There are so many reasons why to hire a professional organizer that I thought I could share some of my thoughts and testimonials with you.
