Winter in Florida is a time to relax and enjoy the beautiful weather, free of hurricanes, humidity, and the snow “back home.” It’s also the perfect time to slow down and take stock of your home and belongings. Personally, there is nothing so liberating as making things look cleaner, function better, and feel lighter. That’s what de-cluttering and organizing is all about. Americans love Stuff. We fill our homes and garages with it. We fill storage units with more of it. We read books and articles and watch TV shows on how to make more ourselves. Then we read more books and articles and watch more TV shows on how to get rid of it when we become choked and overwhelmed. There is no right or wrong way to pare down your Stuff. And there is no law that requires you to pare down your Stuff. But I can assure you that if you pare down even a little, you will feel the benefits almost immediately. You may even want to do more! Start small, start at all, or call an Organizer to help you make the first move. And when you’re all done and you have an empty bookshelf, reward yourself with a cup of tea and a new book!

The Tiny House movement is growing and it has sparked the interest of millions. Not all of those millions have what it takes to Go Tiny but many more people are taking a hard look at how and where they reside. This look can result in a decision to stay put, for various reasons, or to make a change. Making that change can be daunting when you take a good look around your home. Where do I start? What do I keep? Do I try to sell things, donate, toss? It can be overwhelming. It can lead to rash decisions, no decisions or just plain surrender. But it doesn’t have to be so complicated. The best thing you can do is ask for help from someone who has no stake in what you take, what you leave, what you donate. I have helped many people de-clutter before a big move and the general consensus has been that making the hard choices before the move was definitely the way to go. Are you thinking of downsizing? Let’s talk. Let’s take a look. Let Me Help.
There are so many new services coming to Sarasota, Florida. Ride-share programs like Uber and Lyft can get you where you want to go. Shipt can bring your grocery order to your door. But who are these people behind the wheel and picking out your nectarines and baking potatoes?

I have always believed in the concept of safety in numbers but in this case, the safe number I believe in is One. Let Me Help is a company of One. The person who drives you to the doctor is the same person who will pick up your groceries.

I am that One Person and I always encourage prospective clients to do a background check on me. I offer many references for you to call and talk with about my company and me.

We are blessed with beautiful weather in the Sunshine State but summer can be a real bear sometimes. Do you need to beat the heat? Sarasota has fabulous beaches and evening can be the best time to visit Siesta or Lido or your personal favorite. Take a friend and have an after-dinner stroll, dipping your feet in the warm salt water and feeling the sand between your toes. Be sure to stay for the sunset and look for the elusive “green flash!”
Looking for ways to cool down during the day? Sarasota is blessed with a vibrant arts community. Why not visit the Ringling Museum or Art Center Sarasota? Take in a movie or check out the many thrift and consignment stores in the area. There is always something fun to do in town. Enjoy the summer!
It’s the rainy season here in Florida and while it is important to be vigilant about tropical storms and hurricanes, don’t forget about the “mundane.” The daily rain showers we are blessed with at this time of year nourish our lawns and beautify our gardens. But there can be a dark side to all this water; mold and leaks around your home, both inside and out. It is a good idea to make it a weekly practice to check out your home for these issues. If you are a snowbird, you should think about having a friend, relative or neighbor watch your home. If you have no one to rely on for this simple service, by all means, Let Me Help! I offer weekly or monthly visits to make sure you have peace of mind about your investment. Send me a message and we’ll talk!
