Hi and welcome. I’m Karen Furman, Home Organizer, Decluttering Expert, and Moving Strategist. On this site you’ll find aliyah advice, moving & packing helpful hints, and tips for decluttering & organizing with a dash of good humor.
I’m originally from Chicago and made aliyah in 2010. Since making aliyah my family has moved 4 times so I’ve got this moving thing down to a science. I live with my family of 6 in a 4 room (3 bedroom) apartment so I’ve learned to maximize space and reduce clutter in order to not feel cramped in my surroundings. I’m a former middle school and high school teacher with 24 years experience with loads of patience and a non-judgemental, positive attitude.
The Klutter Koach (spelled K for Karen and pronounced Coach) deals with more than just clutter.
- Aliyah advisement in the jurisdiction of your “stuff”
- Home organizing
If planning on making aliyah or new to Israel, check out my blog series The Aliyah Files with over 25 blog posts aimed at helping olim master everything from slang to buying school supplies. Whether it’s which OTC medication you can substitute for Motrin or how to begin the downsizing/decluttering process before you move, this blog is an amazing RESOURCE. **NEW** “How to” Videos such as SPONGA: The Video!
Moving is stressful and having to deal with a mountain of boxes is overwhelming. Let me unpack for you! For example, I can unpack your kitchen items and set up your kitchen while you can attend to your family. By the time I’m finished you’ll have everything in place to be able to put supper on the table!
If moving locally, I can also pack for you, but we do it in such a way that we declutter in the process. Save money on your moving costs by not shlepping things you no longer need and save time on your unpack because all you need to organize are the things you use, not stuff you wanted to get rid of but never did. I freecycle giveaways locally to others who can use them and donate the rest to gemachim or organizations.
Home Organizing / Decluttering / Downsizing
REGARDLESS IF YOU ARE ORGANIZED OR NOT ORGANIZED being short on time, energy, or motivation is what keeps us from starting and/or finishing projects. If you can minimally dedicate 2-4 hours of time per session, the Klutter Koach will ENTHUSIASTICALLY and NON-JUDGMENTALLY help you get those home organizing projects checked off your list. Closets, clothing, kitchens, playrooms & more.
