Do you scramble to get out the door in the morning because you can’t find your glasses or your car keys? Do your kids miss the bus because they misplaced their homework or their mittens? Or are you afraid someone is going to recommend you for the TV show Hoarders because of the massive piles of junk in your basement or spare room? It’s time to get organized.
Sarah Cronin, owner of Simply Inspired Home Organizing, has seen it all! And she knows how to help you create simple systems that will result in a more peaceful, manageable physical environment and a less frazzled daily life.
Sarah joins Marti & Erin in this week’s Mom Enough episode for a helpful conversation about how to get started when organizing feels overwhelming, how to set inspired (and realistic) goals, how to choose what stays and what goes, and how to deal creatively with items that have sentimental value. Drawing on her background in child development, Sarah also offers wise advice on engaging children in the organizing process. Marti & Erin were inspired by Sarah’s guidance for how to get organized, and we think you will be too!
