SOS: Simple Organized Solutions

SOS: Simple Organized Solutions

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.

4 Strategies to Lessen A Perfectionist Mindset

By | June 25th, 2020|Change|

Someone once told me that I’m a perfectionist. That didn’t resonate with me because I don’t believe that’s true.  In my mind everything that I do doesn’t have to be perfect, good enough works for me, although I do strive for excellence in the things that I do. Does that make me a perfectionist? No, it doesn’t. I don’t work at something to the point of perfection so that it causes me distress. There are [...]

Determining Root Cause

By | May 28th, 2020|Problem Solving|

In my previous life, I worked in IT on a technical support help desk.  People would call in for help with technical issues with their computer equipment.  Part of problem solving on the help desk is to try to determine the root cause of the issue. You probably have had situations in the past where you had to call a service providers support center to resolve an issue for you.  Maybe your phone or internet [...]
