All About Alaska

All About Alaska

Being a professional Organizer means many things to our clients, it’s not just about being organized, but how it can affect so many aspects of their lives.

Recently I was helping one of my clients get ready for a 10 day Alaskan Cruise, it was quite a process. A packing list was sent in advance for all of the specific items needed from polypropylene glove & sock liners to knee high, warm water proof boots, not things a Houstonian keeps handy!

While she made many trips to REI, I was pulling things together that she already had tucked away in her recently organized closet.

She also had to prepare for three birthdays on the cruise and a few books and toys for the young grandchildren staying in her room (giving parents some much needed time for themselves).

I personally, was having a blast; it was almost like I was the one going on the trip!!

A week early we had her suitcase packed, presents wrapped and she was ready to go. At this point she looked at me said, “ this wouldn’t have happened before” I wasn’t quite sure what she meant, then she said “before you came along, I would not have been able to find the things I needed so I would have had to buy everything new and I am usually up at 3:00 a.m. frantically packing at the last minute and rushing to the airport.”

This was the best compliment to me and reminds me of why I love being a
Certified Professional Organizer. Building the relationship and seeing how putting things together for our clients helps them in their daily routine and in this case an Alaskan Cruise!

She saved time, she saved money and she had peace of mind.
