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

Who doesn’t want practical solutions to get their sh*t together? You can read about getting organized until your eyes cross and your brain is about to explode, but unless you get up and do it, the piles won’t disappear, the boxes that you haven’t opened since you moved in 20 years ago will never get unpacked, and old, worn-out clothes will continue to occupy closet space. So what’s the first step when you don’t know what to do?

The answer is…

Reaching out for help. It’s that easy. Contact me at or to get started right away.

I’ll share the secrets to whipping your home into shape and help you “get it together.”

I'm Sherri aka The Practical Sort.  For over 20 years, I assisted non-profits, family members, and friends achieve order to make operations, routines, and spaces work better for them in an eco-friendly way.   As I transitioned into a "Freebird" sending my last child off to college, I launched The Practical Sort to provide practical 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.  Protecting the environment is part of our Portland culture. It’s part of who we are.

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 at or request a free phone consultation by clicking here. The longer you wait the harder it is. Let's get your home sorted so you can love it LOTS.
