Hi. I’m Karen.
I moved to Israel in 2010 from the USA. At the time I was a SPANISH /ESL teacher for middle school and high school students. Additionally, I was a newly practicing MASSAGE THERAPIST.
“How long have you been a home organizer?”
In regards to being an organizer, I’ve been organizing since 1st grade when I circulated the classroom straightening everyone’s desks. I turned this organizing passion into a business and now help on average 20 clients per month get organized, declutter, or pack/unpack.
I’m a mom to six kids ages 4-20. Before you start doing mental math and wondering that I look too young to have a 20-year-old, add fifteen years to the age you think I am and then a few more.
I live with my husband and darlings in a small three-bedroom one-floor apartment approximately 100 meters. (I’m 49 if you were still wondering.) Since I NEED everyone plus their stuff to fit, I’ve become an expert in maximizing storage and transforming living space from chaos to calm.
My method is a combination of Marie Kondo and Flylady. I strongly believe in keeping usable items out of the landfills so I freecycles clients’ giveaways within the community to individuals and organizations who can utilize them.”
“IS YOUR HOME ORGANIZED?” I get this question all the time.
Yes, it is. Does it get messy? Yes, it does. It wouldn’t be normal if it didn’t. It’s daily maintenance and systems that help keep things running smoothly and make clean up time quick and easy.
On a personal note, I love to read, do arts and crafts with recycled materials, and do scrapbooking. I’m a big fan of mint chocolate and chocolate with peanut butter and that’s where my sweet tooth gets the best of me.
I’m a big supporter of second-hand shopping especially when it comes to clothes. This has a large impact on my business philosophy of freecycling (rehoming) where I find new homes for the giveaway items my clients have decluttered. They feel good that other people can use their stuff plus it keeps usable items out of the landfill.
Thanks for visiting and checking out my website. Questions? Contact me
