When you think about getting organized, do these words ever cross your mind?

Help! I don’t know where to begin!

If so, you’re not alone! As a professional organizer, these are the words I hear most often when talking to prospective clients.

Whether the state of clutter in your home has you overwhelmed to the point of not knowing where to start, or you’re simply feeling ready to turbo-charge your organizing efforts, our free workshop “Help! I don’t know where to begin!” is for you! This workshop will show you where and how to start the organizing process and make a noticeable difference in your home—all in just one week!  

During this one-week workshop you will:

  • Find out the best place to start when getting organized!
  • Get guidance from a professional organizer all week long! That’s right, for a full week professional organizer Aby Garvey will coach students on the workshop material via our private, online forum.
  • Dive in and start clearing your clutter—creating real change in your home and life!
  • Share your decluttering victories with fellow classmates, and be inspired by your classmates’ progress, too!
  • Learn about the power of deadlines. This free workshop is open for seven full days—and you’ll be taking action and creating change each and every day. Come see how empowering a deadline can be! (But remember, when the workshop closes, it closes. So come ready to dig in and clear some clutter!)  
  • Learn about the power of focus! During this workshop we’ll be concentrating on only one area—initiating the “clearing the decks” part of the organizing process. You’ll see how staying focused will help you create results!
  • See your feelings gradually shift throughout the week—from stress to relief, and dare I say it, happiness!—as you begin taking action on your clutter!  

What this class is…

Help! I don’t know where to begin!” is designed to give you a taste of what goes on inside a simplify 101 workshop. Better yet, within this one week you’ll experience how good it feels to create change in your home and your life!

This workshop is designed to give you simple ways to answer the looming question “Where should I begin?” which will help you to start clearing the clutter in your home. It is through action that you create change, and during this workshop you will be taking action. The best part is this:  these simple acts of doing something about your clutter will help you move from feeling overwhelmed to feeling motivated and energized! When you finish this seven-day workshop, you won’t just know where to begin, you will have already begun!

What You Can Expect from this Workshop

This workshop will show you how to get started decluttering your home—so you can move past feeling overwhelmed and on to being super excited about taking the next steps in organizing your home. One of the keys to success during this workshop is to stay focused on a terrific strategy for getting started and clearing clutter:  We won’t be discussing how to organize the items you decide to keep and we won’t be making storage decisions.

Here’s why:  Questions regarding organization and storage are very difficult to answer so early on in the organizing process, and can actually get in the way of getting started! Attempting to answer these questions too early in the process adds to feelings of being overwhelmed, and confusion about where to begin. Because of this, during “Help! I don’t know where to begin!” we will focus solely on effective initial steps—both with the lesson content and Q&A in the forum. If you dive in, follow the action steps, and stay focused—you will see improvement (and less clutter!) in your home by the end of the week! I’ll be there all week long helping you stay focused and take action!
