Have you ever heard that the saying that things often get worse before things get better? Think: childbirth. Think: Kitchen in the midst of being turned over for Passover. When you are in the middle of either of these scenarios (and hopefully not overlapping!) the stress and agony seem like they’ll never end, but they do. Presto-a baby! or Voila-a Kosher for Passover kitchen!
I will break it to you gently…tackling an organizing project may have similar emotions especially when things feel overwhelming. For birth, many opt for a doula. For Pesach, extra help (hopefully!). Slaying a monster (aka a room that overwhelms us), a home organizer, which in this case is Yours Truly.
In most of my organizing sessions I take before and after photos which I share with the client. Sometimes I’m granted permission to share publicly. Last week I worked with a client who insisted on BEFORE, MIDDLE, and AFTER PICTURES and wanted me to share them. Here there are. Pictures say more than words. Which one(s) are you screaming Ahhhhhrrrggg!!!! and which bring a sigh of relief, a deep cleansing breath, and Ahhhh!
Quite a transformation, isn’t it? 3 hours, 15 minutes. We did some sorting in another room where we had moved the desk seen in one of the Before photos. Total =4 hours.
Yes, you can give birth on your own. Yes, you can turn over a kitchen for Pesach on your own. You can organize on your own, too, but do you want to?
Thanks for reading.
