The Magical Purse

This tip won't work for everyone. Actually I can guarantee that the half of you who are Classics (SJs) plus you Organic Structures (NFJs) and Smart Structures (NTJs) will think we are mad-hatters, but the best organizational tip I ever had was from my fabulous  sister-in-law, Rebecca Perkins, of RougeNY: A Makeup Salon fame.

Make Way For Baby

People have an inkling that babies come with a lot of stuff; veteran parents bemoan it loudly and often. But the one thing rarely discussed — the thing that was an eye opener for most of our clients — is that this onslaught of baby stuff isn't just one big avalanche. It's constant. It's like snow in Cleveland in January. It never ends and comes in faster than anyone who is lacking a fulltime nanny, an attic and a slew of pre-existing empty bins can manage in those first few years.

See You in September!

Kelly says we are acting like proper Parisians — the city, as fate would have it, where PixiesDidIt! was born — and taking August off. We wish you plenty of lazy, dog days and hope you get to eat lots of fresh corn and juicy watermelon, and get to dip your toes into some cool body of water somewhere sunny and full of joy.

It's Hard GETTING Organized

Crazy that an organizing company whose motto is "Life Should Be Easy" will admit in writing that organizing it is hard, but it is. No matter what your personality type, it's the getting part that's always so difficult. Staying organized is much easier, but not if you've organized yourself in a way that doesn't take into account your personality type. Or worse, you actually organized but don't think you are because you don't think or feel that it looks the way it should. Ah those "shoulds" again. Life should be easy, but it isn't always because we're always having to get organized and never allowed to feel or think that we already are.

What's the solution? Well you can hire us. You can read our blog and look through our extensive archive of PixieTips for some solutions, and soon you'll be able to buy our book, but until then, here's a few tips to help you get started.

What's So Wrong with Being "Anal"?

I know, I should have titled last week's entry as What's So Wrong with Being Lazy? But hey, what's done is done. The point is that just as being lazy gets a bad rap, so does being "anal." I know it's a terrible thing Freud did in equating being neat and tidy with having issues with potty training, or whatever it was he was getting at, but while no one would argue there's anything wrong with being neat and tidy, we tend to denigrate these attributes with "being anal" or the more updated and similarly psychiatric "being OCD. " Why is everyone so embarrassed to be clean?
