Do you know where your car keys are at this moment? How about the life insurance bill or that box full of family photos you’ve been meaning to sort and display? Would it surprise you to know recent estimates claim that the average American wastes 55 minutes a day, or about 12 weeks a year, looking for things they know they own but can’t find? Imagine all the great things you could do if you had another full hour a day for yourself.
Sharon Knowles specializes in helping people reclaim ownership of their increasingly complicated lives.
“We specialize in helping people gain control of their time by helping them gain control of their space, whether that’s living space, working space or professional space,” said Knowles, who launched her company, Space Redefined & Services, in 2006. “By de-cluttering and organizing their spaces, a professional organizer helps people not only save the time of having to search for items but also the money of having to duplicate or replace them. They also create fresh, new spaces for current or future needs while making existing spaces look much better and function more efficiently. Last, and perhaps most important, professional space planning and organizational services give people peace of mind by reducing the stress and frustration that always seem to accompany disorganization and/or poor space management.”
QUICK ORGANIZATION FACTS:
• 80% of household clutter is the result of disorganization, not lack of space.
• 80% of what we file away is never looked at again.
• With nearly 40,000 self-storage facilities operating in the U.S., demand for them doubled from 1994-2004.
• 23% of people say they pay bills late (and incur late fees as a result) simply because they lose them.
A QUICK TIP FROM SHARON:
If you have collections of clipped recipes that are cluttering drawers, purchase a three-ring binder (ideally, in a color that matches your décor), plastic sheet protectors, colored construction paper or plain paper and a set of dividers with tabs. Glue each recipe onto a piece of paper (use the front and back of each piece of paper), then place into a sheet protector. Categorize the recipes (e.g., holidays, soups, breakfast, dessert, etc.), label the tabs, and place the recipes in the binder.
