Clara of The Home Organized joins us in this episode to talk about simple and intentional home organizing. Even though it takes time and effort, doing away with clutter does make you feel good. Clara started The Home Organized 3 years ago after getting some encouragement from a friend. It is a boutique organizing firm that aims to bring joy, efficiency, and style to people’s homes.
Clara focuses on two things in her work: simplicity and intention. Her team takes a personalized approach to each client and helps them create systems that work best for them. It’s important that the home looks beautiful, but also that it’s easy to maintain.
A lot of people have emotional attachments to items, and this can make it difficult to declutter. Clara discusses why so many people experience this and shares what her own home experience was like growing up. We hear about how advertising and marketing do play a role in tempting us to buy more than we need.
Clara stands by her belief that we can live with a lot less than we think we can, and shares her strategies for buying more mindfully. Some people practice a “one in and one out” rule, and this can help keep the accumulation of items under control.
It can be difficult to let someone into your home and help you get organized because the process can leave you feeling vulnerable. Clara emphasizes her non-judgmental approach. Her team has pretty much seen it all, and their only goal is to help. They love helping the client reach a peaceful state in their mind and in their home.
