There are so many Apps! In June of 2014 Apple iTunes and Google both had 1.2 Million Apps according to Tech Crunch.com. That number is just a little overwhelming….. If you are the least bit intimidated by the vast majority of Apps…like me, you will appreciate this list.
This is a list of Professional Organizer Approved Apps. Apps can help us organize and keep track of so many things, such as, mileage, recipes, documents, maps, other people’s business cards, projects, schedules and so much more. Some of my favorites are Evernote, Drop Box, and Card Star.
If you are curious about Apps; I recommend going to iTunes or Google, type in a category in the search bar, and see what is available. Apps are easy to install and uninstall, so no harm done if you don't like it.

Does your office resemble this photo or maybe the before photo? Your office does not need a complete overhaul for Simple Solution Organizing to help you. We work with individuals and small businesses to increase efficiency and productivity. We begin this process through our comprehensive evaluation. Our consultation consists of reviewing your evaluation and current systems. Client's tell us, this exercise is extremely beneficial.
The evaluation takes approximately 30 minutes to complete and an hour to review. The client fills out the evaluation on their own and we review it during our first appointment. Our session consists of brainstorming, goal setting and developing an individualized plan, including recommendations and solutions, to help you and your business streamline processes.
Here is a list of a few clients we have worked with: Heyward Allen Motor Company, Stanfield Air, Merrill Lynch, Morgan Keegan (now Raymond James), EO Studios, Connected Technologies, Athens Atlas Chiropractic Center, The Retreat Day Spa.
Siri can read your texts to you. Siri can send you an email or text (to remind you to do something). Siri can schedule appointments in your calendar, make phone calls for you. Help you find your way home or other places, and locate restaurants.

I have definitely had problems with Siri but the more you use it the better it gets. When Siri pronounces a name wrong you can correct it. There is trial and error and best to practice using it in your home, not while your driving. That could be a prescription for Road Rage.
Technology the more we research our tools the better.

I help clients find homes for all of their stuff. For some people, creating or finding homes for items is innate; but for others it’s a daunting overwhelming task. The more stuff you own, the more places you have to create.
I recently met with a client that wanted her basement decluttered. However, she and her husband enjoy collecting things. It’s fine to collect things when you have room for them and it does not take over your space. It’s easy for me to say this and live this principle because I hate clutter. When you are a person that loves finding deals, frequenting Garage and Estate Sales, and collecting items it is extremely difficult to stop the hunt.
Do you love collectibles more than your space? There comes a point when 'collectors' have to decide what is more important. A life they envision: a decluttered beautiful home where they entertain friends and family, or a home filled with collections that prohibit them from enjoying their lives to the fullest.
When it comes to living a clutter-free life; you are in charge. However, your decisions have a profound impact on your family. I have many clients that hire me with children who tell me “I do not want my kids to grow up and live the way I do.” I often see children’s rooms emulating the rest of their house.
I am writing about 2 very different things: 1 finding a home for all of your stuff (reasonable amount that fits in your home) and/or 2 determining and accepting the hard truth that you have too much stuff and it has taken over your home or is in process. In the next few months I will share several options for 'homes' for all of your stuff in my future blogs.
I would like to help you find a home for all of your stuff. Call or email me today.
