Miscellaneous items throughout your space in drawers, cabinets, and on surfaces. The endless abyss of misplaced keys, mail, receipts, packages, and clothes. The struggle to focus while keeping up with work, relationships, and leisure activities. Things snowball out of control even more when you travel.
Growing up I was accustomed to walking through alleys of stuff in each room. I used to clean and organize these spaces only to find them cluttered again soon later. My room was my haven. It was here, during my years of childhood, that I found joy and a place that could stay organized. It was the only room in the house that was kept clean – free of objects and things on the floors and surfaces. One year we even had Christmas in my room because it was the only open space to open presents.
I know personally what it’s like to struggle with having too much stuff and too little time left to enjoy. I wanted a clean, organized and simple lifestyle.
Thankfully, I found a way.
Hi! I’m Nicole Sachiko.
I’m a professional organizer and certified KonMari® Consultant under Marie Kondo and her team of experts. I have a BA in Psychology and minor in Health Education. I also have first hand experiences of how the art of tidying has impacted life for myself, my family, and others. My experience of growing up in a hoarder home helps me identify personally with the emotional struggles we have with letting go. My background in psychology helps me identify strategies of how to organize efficiently, supporting you and your goals.
My lifestyle today is simple – I do the things I love by using organization as a vehicle to succeed. I approach organization from a holistic point of view for myself and my clients. The techniques I teach clients are the same practices I use myself in my own life. Organization is vital for every part of my life:
- Moving every year
- Traveling internationally
- Preparing & planning events or trips
- Day to day activities
- Maintaining my home
- Running my own business
Being a Traveler & Professional Organizer requires only keeping possessions that truly add value and enhance my life.
The first part of sustainable organization is to decide what to keep and discard. The best way to make decisions is to start with easier categories and then move on to the more difficult ones. For Office & Home Organization Services we organize in order from easiest to hardest: Clothes, Books, Papers, Komono (miscellaneous), and sentimental. As we organize, clients build their confidence to make decisions by focusing on what belongings give them joy. The second part is to focus on how to store items and where. The end result is a functional system around your daily habits.
Organizing and discarding come with hard decisions, but do not fear you are not alone! As a KonMari® Consultant I will help you figure out where to start, what to do, and how to keep your things neat for your home, office, and travel lifestyle.
