5 Must Have Time Management Tools

This workshop teaches 5 essential tools along with tips and tricks that can be applied in both the business profession as well as in domestic living.

Clutter Busters

Instead of learning how to “dig out” of the current clutter situation in your home, the idea behind Clutter Busters is to learn how to avoid taking on more possessions and balance out what you already own. As time passes by our houses become full to the roofline with items we may not truly love, use or need. This presentation will give you the ammunition to say, “enough is enough” and stay strong in your dealings with the myriad of items taking residence in your house. There are over 25 tips, tricks and mottos being taught in this one course.

From Homeroom to Homework

This special class is designed for parents/caregivers of 4th through 12th graders. It will teach you how to use a five-step procedure to organize everything from your children’s lockers, desks and backpacks to the all-important planner each school provides. Children are expected to know how to get organized once they are in middle school but nobody truly teaches them this life skill. Come learn it yourself so you can help your child boost his/her organizational skills which will carry into college and beyond. After this presentation your students can spend their time doing homework and studying instead of trying to find it!

safeIf you knew you had 10 minutes to evacuate your house or if a loved one should suddenly fall seriously ill, would you know where all your important documents are so you could rebuild your life? We all need our papers to be organized. Without them we can prove nothing. Getting our estates in order can cause many people anxiety but it doesn’t have to be this way if you are prepared. Please join Jean Marie Herron and Kimberly A.

Did you know professional organizers can help you build a “Life Inventory™”? This is a catalog of everything important in your life; from family members and pets to your online accounts, passwords and secured locations. From your wallet contents to financial accounts and passwords. From your service providers to your medical information. From your pictures of your home contents to pictures of your family… and everything in between. Then, all of that personal, medical, financial and other family information of all kinds, for each family member, can be scanned and digitized in one safe location. Instead of having piles of paper, sticky notes and all that important “stuff” in your head, you’ll have real organization!
