Get Organized at Tax Time with Paper Clarity Resource Guide

 

 

Are you going through papers and files for tax prep? I know you're rather sick of doing paper work... but tax time really is a good time to double-check your important legal, medical, and financial documents. Are they organized enough, and accessible?

Benefit: The whole year will be less frustrating and worrisome. 

ClutterClarity Saying: "You want to aim for ease-in-function, not perfection."  


Motivation: Think of taking care of your papers as taking good care of you (and the people you love). 

You don't need to go it alone! 

 Bring along Paper Clarity Resource Guide (now in its 3rd edition!) as your companion so you don't get lost in all those papers and documents. 


We all need this information whether we have clutter or not.

 
One phone coaching client in Idaho told me, "I always keep Paper Clarity next to the shredder, so I don't worry." Because it's right there, it's easy to know what to keep, where and when to shred.


ClutterClarity Tip: To prevent overwhelm, don't do everything all at once. Work in little bits through time. Schedule 2 hour blocks of time with breaks. Take good notes about what you need to do next.

No more wasting time or worrying. You'll know what to do with over 100 personal legal, financial and medical documents and papers that most families need to manage.

"Paper Clarity is great for anyone who wants to organize papers with less worry. I use it and happily recommend it to my clients."

New Service for Local Peeps

Ironically, the Marie Kondo craze has fueled such a decluttering frenzy that the very women it has motivated are now very frustrated.

Unintentionally, the craze has bottle-necked donation centers and consignment stores. Like us, they don't have the space or staff to hold our clutter. It's all too much!

Clothes, clothes, clothes! Women can't get a consignment store appointment, or when they do, many clothes are not accepted. They then have to bring their clothes somewhere to donate (nothing wrong with donating, of course, but disappointing if wanting cash for their clutter.). Or worse, schlepping back home with all the bags of clothes for them to sit around, possibly in the way for months.

Just this week, a client and I were talking (and laughing) about how surprised she was at how much her feelings were hurt when the consignment store rejected her high-end clothes. She knew this was crazy thinking, but nonetheless how she felt.

To respond to this craziness... ClutterClarity designed a new service faster than originally planned. Of course, I have been helping women declutter and organize their closets for over 15 years, but I alone can not meet the demand for our services.

Introducing our new Team Member: Amy Roy. Her organizing specialty is all things related to clothes and closets, but what makes her extra valuable is her knowledge of consignment stores, and her special connection to a fabulous consignment store, The Raspberry Beret, based in Maynard and Cambridge, MA, and Reflections in West Concord, MA.

Added benefit: With Amy's unique eye and combined talents, you'll know what clothes will be accepted for consignment, and what to donate BEFORE delivering the clothes.

Here's how Amy can help you:

  • Get clarity on all decluttering decisions
  • Declutter your clothes
  • Put new outfits together with the clothes you keep
  • Organize your closets and bureaus

Wait, wait there's more... Amy will do the schlepping for you!

Amy will take your clothes to Raspberry Beret, and set up an account for you. Or she'll take your clothes to the donation center, and get a receipt for you. DONE.

Any decluttering drudgery becomes a delight with Amy at your side!

No more wasting time and effort. No more clutter or feeling overwhelmed.
Most importantly... Enjoy organizing your closet and enjoy getting dressed every day.

In Amy's Words: "I’m so excited to be teaming up with ClutterClarity to offer this new service - one that happens to be my favorite work as a professional organizer. I want to assure you that your things and your feelings will be safe with me. All the physical work will get done smoothly and quickly, but more importantly, as Laura promises, it will all get done with your ease, even enjoyment!"

Wait, wait there's more... no worries! Amy can come back seasonally or annually to help you stay decluttered and organized.

When you work with ClutterClarity...
It's not about an item or the perfectly organized closet sparking joy. It's all about you having a joyful experience taking care of your life and home. We guarantee that you enjoy our unique process, not just the results.

P.S. This is just the beginning. ClutterClarity will be expanding this service to include other consignment stores soon.

ClutterClarity Featured in WellesleyWeston Magazine


Less is More: Time to Declutter, Time to Let Go

 
An Excerpt:
...Laura Moore, M.Ed., founder of ClutterClarity LLC, has helped people of all ages in Weston and Wellesley move to smaller homes and apartments, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and college. She works mostly with women, who often feel shame and embarrassment that they can't easily manage downsizing their home or possessions. "Many of my clients are highly successful in their work and highly functional, so they can't understand how this can be so difficult", she says. "But it's a skill to learn, not a talent we're born with".

Replace Presents with Your Presence

 

According to Shopaholics Anonymous, there are six types of "shopaholics," a term coined in 1984.

  1. Compulsive - shop when feeling emotional distress.
  2. Trophy - shop for the perfect item.
  3. Image - shop to be seen as a big spender, often for flashy items.
  4. Bargain - shop for items they don’t need because they are on sale.
  5. Bulimic - shop in a vicious cycle of buying and returning.
  6. Collectors - shop until they own every available option of a set.

To learn more about shopping addictions, click here.

 

Collectively, we can change the tidal wave of clutter in our homes by changing our own shopping habits.

 

Shop differently. Shop less. Shop with intention. 

  • Gift your presence. Create an experience to share with someone you love. (See Hopper House Tour below.)
  • Gift your time. Help someone. Offer your skills. 
  • Ask people to donate. Give to your favorite charity. 
  • Donate a tree in someone's name.  Arbor Day Foundation
  • Slow down. Disappear, rest, play with someone you love.

What you gift now will last forever in someone's memory. 
No waste at all!  

Shop In Your Home FIRST
Why wait until you die to give stuff away to the people you love? Jewelry, art, kitchen pots, your grandparents' love letters - something someone has admired or you know they will appreciate. Are you decluttering or downsizing now? Great. Your clutter can be someone else's treasure now!

  1. Make a list of people to whom you want to give gifts. 
  2. Stroll through your home. 
  3. Find things you know a person will really love or appreciate.

Benefits: 
Save time, money and reduce your stress. Enjoy!
