Frustration, overwhelm, and tension caused by excess stuff or inefficiency no longer needs to be part of your story.

We are all crazy busy and seeking practical solutions for getting our sh*t together. There are loads of books and other resources to teach you how to get organized. They’re great. But you can read about getting organized until your eyes cross and your brain is ready to explode. Let’s get real. Unless you take action, the piles won’t disappear, the boxes that haven’t been opened since you moved in 20 years ago will never get unpacked, and old, worn-out clothes will continue to occupy much needed closet space.

Let’s get you unstuck and moving forward in a natural direction. The sooner we start, the quicker you will create the home your crave and make room for what matters to you most.

Contact me at or, and we’ll begin sorting through your unique challenges to find solutions that work for you.

For over 20 years, I assisted non-profits, family members, and friends to create systems and routines to simplify life, provided guidance on what to keep and what to release in an eco-friendly way, and arranged spaces and items to work better for them.   As I transitioned into a "Freebird" sending my last child off to college, I launched The Practical Sort to focus on providing practical, organizing solutions for busy women.

Prior to having children, I worked at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) during the early days of grass roots recycling.  Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Repurpose, and Reimagine are goals of every Practical Sort organizing session. 

If you are not lovin' your home so much, if you are struggling to “get it together”, if you’re thinking “if I only had an extra set of eyes, ears, hands, and perspective to get me started”, then reach out to or request a free phone consultation by clicking here. The longer you wait the harder it is. Let’s LOVE our homes, let’s simplify our lives.
