Good to KNOW

I love reading articles and watching videos about organizing, and I've linked some great websites and videos for your enjoyment/edification/

enlightenment/and education. 

 

For those of you who want to go it alone or give it your best effort, there are plenty of suggestions here. 

On the other hand:

Back in the day, I Googled, 'How do I know if I'm having a heart attack?' The response from WebMD (I think) was, 'Stop reading this and get to a hospital.' The point is that many people get tips from the internet and/or buy books on organizing, get started, then get stuck in the muck, or never start at all (or really have the heart attack).

 

So, stop reading/watching these, and call me! 845.901.2445. I can help!
