Women who are overwhelmed, but ready to take action, contact SOS to help them simplify their life by eliminating the excess that weighs them down and causes them to feel stuck.  Stuck in a way that keeps them from moving forward in their life.

They crave the freedom to get out there to see what the world has to offer as they move into the next chapter of their life.

Many years of accumulating things, as well as other family member’s things, that they no longer want or even remember they have, turned into clutter.  The clutter is like a boat anchor that weighs them down.

These women want to downsize their things, or maybe even their homes to provide a clear path to bring in fresh air so they can breathe, so they can think clearly, so they can regain peace of mind.

With a clear mind it’s easy to make plans to do more of the things that matter to you, that make you happy. The possibilities are endless!

We would love to collaborate with you to open the door to the next chapter of your life!

SOS is a compassionate, confidential home organizing service in St. Louis County, MO. We specialize in downsizing, or rightsizing older adults, emptynesters and team organizing using behavior-based solutions.

Mind Clutter is a Real Thing

By |July 28th, 2021|Clutter|

Mind clutter can mean many things – too many thoughts, unwanted thoughts, negative thoughts, overwhelm, etc. The cause can come from within or from external sources or a bit of both. Clutter is clutter, whether it comes in the form of things in our homes, or the thoughts in our brains. We need to purge mind clutter from our brains, just like we purge clutter from our homes. There are many benefits of having a [...]

There is a Consequence to Every Action

By |July 21st, 2021|Home Organization|

Every decision we make causes an action that results in a consequence. An inaction is also a decision, a decision not to act. A consequence is a result of the decision, or choice that you make depending on the situation or circumstance you are in at the time. We all make many decisions every day in the course of our lives. Some may be mundane, or not particularly life impacting, others can be detrimental to [...]

How to Recycle Fabrics

By |July 14th, 2021|Recycle|

When I’m working with clients to downsize their belongings, the subject of how to recycle fabrics almost always comes up. Most clients want their unwanted things to go to a good home. There are always instances when we do have to trash items that are broken and can’t be recycled. Then the subject of what can be recycled comes up. Most are surprised when they learn that fabrics can be recycled, not in their curbside [...]

Linen Closet Storage Best Practices

By |July 7th, 2021|Home Organization, Storage|

Not every home has a linen closet.  If your home has one, there are a couple of places where they may be located. Either in the bathroom, or they may be found in the hall outside the bathroom.  Typically, they are not just used to store linens.  Most likely, they are used to store towels, bed linens, personal care items and more. The location may determine what type of items you store in your linen [...]

Put it on The List of Needed Supplies

By |June 30th, 2021|Home Organization|

Whenever I discover that I need something, I put it on the list. I wrote an article some years ago titled ‘How do you remember everything?’, it talks about lists in terms of to-do lists. This article is related to remembering, but in terms of needed supplies, not things to do. With everything going on in our busy lives, it’s nearly impossible to remember everything we need to do, much less everything we need to [...]

Don’t Buy Storage Products Until After Assessment

By |June 23rd, 2021|Home Organization, Storage|

New clients always want to know what storage products to buy before we meet.  My recommendation is not to buy anything until after assessment of their needs.  Needs assessment in terms of acquiring additional storage comes later in the organizing process. During the first step of the organizing process, which is the sorting step where we put like items together, we will empty all sorts of storage products. They come in all forms, such as [...]
