I help you think outside of the box to get something into the box.
Get to know Lauren Williams, CPO
I'm the Owner and Founder of Casual Uncluttering LLC. I've moved cross country three times - I understand disruption! I've been the stay-at-home parent to a special-needs child. I'm divorced and downsized from the 4,600 sq. ft. house to the 1,024 sq. ft. apartment. I have a professional history in a variety of settings, from think tanks and small non-profits to Columbia University. I've worked with nuns, doctors, lawyers and other demanding specialists as well. I refined my organizing skills while subscription manager for scholarly publications, office and records manager for fundraising departments, senior administrator for a university dean - a jack-of-all trades with a mind for details. I've been heavily involved in three office moves. I was the third person hired into a brand-new department (and the only reason I wasn't the second - No. 2 had already been hired, and was gettting fired for incompetence!). I've brought order back to several offices which had lacked staff for months.
I help you declutter and arrange your belongings. In the process, we might discover anything from a string of pearls to old college textbooks. I help you find your timeless treasures, and give you ideas on how to honor your property by keeping it carefully and conveniently. I support you as you let go of items you may no longer need, and together we create storage systems so the possessions you value no longer get lost or damaged. Those systems can be for paper, mementos, clothes, pots and pans or any other materials in your household, in any space in your home from your garage to your attic.
I want organizing to be fun. I will use humor at every opportunity to make this work easier. I am also able to work in what some people see as very informal environments - with the kids side-by-side with us, the cat trying to get into the boxes, the plumber at your house at the same time. That can make the effort easier for you, and that is a key to success. This job has to be 100% client-centered. If you have to call it quits early because your 2-year-old just had a temper tantrum, we will. And we'll start again when you can.
