  1. Oh my goodness – this is quite the list. I am trying to decide which area to organize first. Thanks for such a great compilation.

  2. I am admiring your blog or website. I am still not sure the difference but I am learning. 🙂

    I am considering making a website and a blog. I am just researching the professional organization business. I really like your graphics on this blog. Who did you use as a web platform? Did you design your graphics and then create them as a jpeg and then import them to your site? did you do it all by yourself? Sorry for all the questions. Thanks for your help.

    1. Hi Stephanie!

      Thanks for reading! We use wordpress to host our website, and the graphics are imported as pdf’s. We have a whole team of designers that create our graphics, and then we import them when they’re ready! Hope that helps!


  3. Oh goodness, I wish I found this article before my husband and I moved interstate a few months ago. It was such a pain, and half our stuff sat in storage! We de-cluttered and got rid of a bunch of stuff recently, so now it’s time to organize and work on the smaller details. I’ll have to get some plastic totes to organize our medicine and such 🙂 Thanks for the tips!
