I'm Kara, a Home Organizing Consultant.
As child I would sort the shelves in grocery stores and reorganize my bedroom for fun. In college, I recall sitting on my bed, reading a self-help book with 101 organizing tips… I excitedly shared each eye-opening tip with my mom! Helping friends reorganize their kitchens and closets has always been a natural and enjoyable pastime. Today, I help women organize their home and paper with sustainable solutions to create a manageable lifestyle with less stress and more enjoyment during each season of life.
For 22 years and counting, my life as a military spouse and mother of 2 has included 9 moves, 7 states and 3 countries. With each move we’ve managed to turn every house into a HOME regardless of the size or layout. While my family and I have experienced some amazing places, not every house was equally as amazing. However, by consistently thinking outside the box, we comfortably reconfigured our belongings to optimize each space with intentional function and flow. That said, it’s not always been a cake walk getting to the “other side” … often the tipping point into tears was a relatively insignificant issue compounded by stacks of moving boxes, mounds of paper, bored or hungry children, and a mother who was overwhelmed with exhaustion.
Processing, maintaining, and storing the constant influx of actionable paper and endless to-do’s has always been my true nemesis and moving frequently only exasperated the issue. My system to corral chaotic household paper (and everything else) had to change with each house layout, causing frequent overwhelm, frustration, disorganization, and inefficiencies. Fast forward, to Kara finding paper organizing solutions with Organize 365®. My actionable paper is now systemized, manageable, organized, and efficient with the implementation the Sunday Basket®. I can think back to every house we’ve lived in over the last 22 years and envision where I would have conveniently set up the Sunday Basket® to curtail the counter clutter, effectively tackle endless tasks, and systemize the actionable paper roaming about. If only I had a Sunday Basket® sooner, life would have been so much less hectic!
Organization looks different for everyone and it’s truly a journey, not a destination. There are multiple stops along the way to uplevel our systems and processes, but often detours and obstacles prompt us to seek a “tour guide” with a road map to get back on track. For me, my organization journey now includes serving others as a small business owner providing Professional Home Organizing services and partnering with Organize 365® as a Certified Paper Solution Organizer. My goal is to provide encouraging mentorship that empowers women to capture the momentum gained from our meetings and use their new skillset to proactively maintain their home and paper during each season of life. I believe, my experience and passion to plan makes me authentically qualified to help you discover order and efficiency is an affordable reality. Thank you for stopping by to check out my suite of services. I look forward to hearing about your organization journey and the possibility of being your personal guide. Together we will cut clutter and create time! Are you ready to climb abroad? Give yourself what you deserve!
