Posted by Isabelle de Grandpre on Tuesday, March 19, 2013, In : Newsletters 
The older my children get the more I seem to need to keep tabs of. I actually thought (stupid me) that when they got older, it would be easier to manage their lives. I was very mistaken so recently I decided to tame the paper clutter on my fridge and try to create a kind of 'command-central' for my family.

What is a command-central? Many refer to this idea as a launch pad - a common space to store small, important items you use everyday. These items can include your keys, cellphones, ...

Simplify in 2013

Posted by Head Chiquita on Monday, January 28, 2013, In : Newsletters 
Dear budding neat freaks,

It’s January and you’ve decided to make some changes. This year, make it all about simplifying your life and your spaces.

Simplify your clutter by examining if all the ‘stuff’ you have is adding value to your life or causing you stress. It’s wonderful to buy new things and keep old souvenirs but if it limits your capacity to be happy, be brave and get rid of it.  You can give to charities or sell the items if that helps.

Perfect home?

Posted by Isabelle De on Monday, August 10, 2009, In : Thinking about it 
I keep getting asked by clients and customers whether my home is PERFECT and I always have a good chuckle because I guess I could say yes and be all high and mighty about it! BUT the truth is simply that it isn't..

Now by "it isn't" I mean that there are days when there is absolute chaos in my home when the beds aren't made and the kitchen looks like a disaster area. But I try to give in to this chaos because I know that tomorrow the system that I have will kick in and order will be restored. ...

Oh boy - confession from the Neat Freak

Posted by Isabelle on Wednesday, May 20, 2009, In : I am only human! 
So despite having an appointment listed on my electronic calendar AND my diary, I actually forgot about it and then had to rush to get there and save face. CAN YOU BELIEVE it? How does that happen?

I guess I just wanted to come clean and let you all know that even the Neat Freak is not perfect. In fact, you can have so many systems in place but if you have a memory like a sieve, you have to be doubly careful to NOT FORGET APPOINTMENTS!
