Email overload. How can we realistically save, remember, feel like we get meaning from, and not delete what we know we’ll want to find again someday. And THEN, that spicket or fountain opens up again tomorrow and there’s MORE flowing…
At this time I am not taking on new clients and so have these two recommendations for you. Both are people I have known for years and trust. Both are experienced and well rounded with different skill sets; read more about them on their About Us pages.

“Sue West brings a librarian style sensibility to organizing while offering advice that is easily accessible to everyone….the art of reorganizing to suit your values and to help you through life transitions…. She emphasizes that there is no right or wrong way to organize. ….aims to overcome any fear individuals have about getting organized by encouraging small steps….She discusses organizing as an “ongoing process” and encourages communication among those who share living space to avoid unintentionally sabotaging any strides toward a more ordered household. … As an archives consultant who helps families create order for their personal papers, and as a former professional librarian, I recommend this book to anyone who bemoans lacking an innate sense of how to order their world.
It is also helpful for those who need a new perspective to help rethink their possessions and to re-examine their sense of self to step comfortably into the future. Ms. West’s book will walk you through the steps you need to create an organizational system that works for you and makes you feel in control."

"Sue’s book leaves no stone unturned, no question unanswered … Whether it’s stuff, time, perspective or plans, she presents clear, easy-to-follow suggestions and ideas that help the reader clarify what’s important and how to let go of the rest. … from a holistic standpoint, taking into account the emotional and relational factors that are so often at the core of our difficulties…."
Her work is based on the recognition that our lives are a series of stages or chapters, and that each new stage has its own requirements for a successful and fulfilling transition. It can often feel like an overwhelming challenge to manage such transitions deliberately and mindfully. Sue’s robust and encouraging approach to this challenge makes it possible to break down and eliminate even the most daunting-looking obstacles."
