I was recently quoted in an article by Kirsten Clodfelter in one of my favorite magazines, Reader’s Digest. See Kirsten’s full article at http://www.rd.com/home/cleaning-organizing/professinal-organizers-before-bed/

Here is my tip from the article:

Power up your devices each night before unwinding. “I put cell phone and other electronic devices on a charging station I keep near the entrance of my house,” says Heather Rogers, author of A Simplified Life: How to Achieve Order and Calm So You Can Reclaim Time, Energy, and Control. This way, I never forget it and my devices are always fully charged.”

I saw this Better Homes magazine at the grocery store yesterday and had to buy it. It’s the January edition so I feel there was extra fate involved in it being displayed for sale in March. Obviously, I was drawn to the cover “Simply Organized”. It’s not only the name of my business but it is my mission statement, my daily goal and my motto when working with my clients.

Most people try to over think and complicate everything. I don’t think we do this on purpose, but perhaps we think that’s the only reason it hasn’t gotten done yet – “it will take too long, be too hard, I don’t know where to start, I’m totally over whelmed”, etc. If these words sound familiar to you, here’s my advice: KEEP IT SIMPLE!

You can hire an expert to help you do almost anything these days. If you have the resources, outsource it. I do everything from daily de-cluttering to move management, help with estates, finding you cleaners, painters, junk removal, shredding services and on and on. If you have a problem with your home or business and it’s weighing you down or stressing you out, call me. If I can’t help you, I will find someone who can.

If you are short on cash but have some spare time, look through my blog posts. In the last two years, I have written instructions on how to do everything from cleaning out your garage to doing your taxes. Can’t find the solution on my website, look on the internet and I am sure someone has a solution for you.

The most important thing to do is start. Whether you call me or research your problem, just get started. The sooner you find help, the quicker your stress can be gone and you can go enjoy the beautiful spring we are having!

Hollywood Gets Organized

Ever noticed how after you buy a new car you then see the same car everywhere? Well, the same can be said about starting an organizing business. I expect to see organizing shows on HGTV or read about organizing in my Real Simple magazine, but lately organizing is all over the TV and in movies!

A few weeks ago on “The Big Bang Theory”, Sheldon was ecstatic to be able to organize Howard’s closet during a dinner party. One of the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” had her closet organized, on “2 Broke Girls”, Max and Caroline took a second job organizing an elderly couple’s apartment, Frankie’s sister (played by Molly Shannon) moved in on “The Middle” to help her family get organized while she was studying for exams. All of the talk show hosts’ homes have been professionally organized including Oprah, Rachel Ray and Katie Couric.

The biggest surprise to me was while watching a movie from 1976 last week. It was the first time I have ever seen this very famous Robert Di Niro movie. If you thought getting organized was a new fad, the scene from 1976 “Taxi Driver” proves it is not: Travis Bickle: I should get one of those signs that says “One of these days I’m gonna get organezized”. De Niro and Cybill Shepherd discuss his need to get his life organized and then he buys a sign and hangs it in his home to help motivate him.

If you are thinking it’s time to get organized, you are in the majority and now you know you are part of a movement that’s been popular for decades, even among the stars and elite in Hollywood.
