Cary, NC, April 24, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Now that the pine pollen has dropped its golden dust across the Triangle-area, homeowners’ thoughts turn to spring-cleaning and fresh starts. Some will stop before they start, not knowing where to begin. That’s where the help of a professional organizer comes into play.
"The challenge of starting a detail-oriented spring cleaning is where to begin," said Geralin Thomas of Metropolitan Organizing. "It helps to begin with tiny, manageable tasks and to create a system that both fit your lifestyle and your goals."
Thomas counsels spring-cleaners to keep three simple goals in mind for successful organizing while spring cleaning. 1. Love and use what you keep, keep and use only the stuff you love. 2. Practice being less sentimental about the stuff you keep. 3. If you can’t find it when you need it, hire a professional organizer to help create a better system. She outlined her keys to success in recent interviews on Health.com, re-published by The Huntington Post and on the Time Management Radio podcast. She offers free downloads, detailed action plans, and tips via her blog, Managing Modern Life, published every Wednesday morning at: http://metropolitanorganizing.com
In addition to operating her North Carolina-based consultancy, Metropolitan Organizing, LLC, Thomas is an instructor for the National Association of Professional Organizers (www.NAPO.net). Thomas, who opened Metropolitan Organizing in 2002, is a past-president of the North Carolina Chapter of NAPO, and provides phone coaching for professional organizers around the world. She holds a B.A. from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. In addition, she has appeared more than 20 times as an expert on the Emmy-nominated A&E TV show, "Hoarders" since 2009.
