Questions like these are always asked at some point during an organizing session. Most commonly after we've gone through the sorting process, put like with like, and then contemplate what we truly want to keep.
Clients turn to me because I'm the organizing expert. I hold the mysteriously correct answers to all questions organizing related.
And this is where it gets dicey. You see, I don't have all the answers! But I do know how to ask questions that help my clients find THEIR answers - answers that work for them, their systems, and their spaces. Because each of us is an individual, and each of us view, and use, our possessions in different ways. "Normal" is just a setting on the washing machine I tell my clients. "Normal" is what works for you and your space, and it most likely will be very different from any one else's.
So, go for it! Grab the Magic Wand of Decision and grant yourself the power to reclaim your space! Need a little help and guidance? Call or email me today and set up an organizing session - the Magic Wand of Decision is included in our fee. :)
