Welcome to my Newsletter

I know you're busy and don't have tons of time to spare and NO time to waste.  For that reason my email newsletters will be short and to the point.  More importantly they provide information you want to know and probably aren't getting elsewhere.  Each month you will get a one page email from me broken up into three sections...  Trends in Organizing, News You Can Use and the Makeover of the Month.


As an added benefit, once a quarter I will offer a special value.  Sometimes this will be a regular discount but I might offer something weird but practical...like in August I plan on offering all current clients one free pickup of up to 15 cans of paint.  And no I won't just throw them over a cliff! (Although I have been tempted a time or two!)   It's just one way to show you that I appreciate and value your business.  And... with a name like YIKES I might as well try to make organizing fun right?


Finally, this should be obvious but I will say it anyway.  I will never share your email addresses with anyone else.  EVER!


Thanks again for joining me and welcome to the Yikes family!

News You Can Use

The following link is to a copy of an article that was in Time magazine back in March 2015.  It's called The Joy of Less and basically contends that instead of our possessions making us happier, the opposite is actually occurring.  "These objects we bring in the house are not inert," says UCLA anthropologist Elinor Ochs, who led a decade-long study on hyperacquisition.  "They have consequences."

Makeover Of The Month

I usually work with this client in her home but one day she called me to help in her office.  As you can see, this closet needed a major overhaul.  We took away a whole trailer full of stuff and what's left is visible and easily accessible.  She was thrilled with the results! If your office has fallen into the "Yikes" zone, give me a call! 



About Yikes Organizing

I wish I could say that I've always wanted to be a professional organizer but the truth is that I'm a late bloomer.  I didn't start writing until my thirties and didn't start Yikes until my forties.  I like changing things up and one day realized I had the ideal background for this kind of work.  For one thing we have six kids (no that isn't a typo) and have moved 16 times!  I have lived in really big houses and really small apartments.  I've hoarded (only baby clothes, but still) and I've purged.  But I did finally come to realize what many of you already know...  "Life is what happens to you while you are busy making other plans." :)


I realize that organizing isn't rocket science but sometimes you need help getting started or the accountability that an organizer provides.  That's what Yikes Organizing is all about.  We will get you from "good grief" to "gorgeous" or at the very least from "disaster" to "delightful."
