Chronic Disorganization

The term ‘chronically disorganized’ is NOT a diagnosis or an illness; it is used to describe a situation in which traditional organizing methods are unlikely to be maintained and will require particularly unique and simple solutions to become more organized.

In these circumstances, we provide our clients with additional support: education to learn new skills, coaching to change habits and sustain motivation, emotional support to increase self-confidence, and long term support to maintain a reasonable organized environment when needed.

I CAN FIND EVERYTHING NOW !

24 February 2016
I had Virginie from Space of Mine organize my kitchen and my pantry. The rest of my house is really organized, but my small galley kitchen and the attached pantry with pocket door that’s always open was a massive eyesore. I just couldn’t seem to make it work on my own. Virginie was amazing, and a work horse! I thought I was a super hard worker but she has me beat. She helped me work within my budget using very inexpensive organizers for the closed cabinets, then buying some nice pieces for the visible space that made it look really classy without breaking the bank. She found 2 matching stainless steel trash cans (one for recycle, one for trash) that fit side by side and the exact height of raised area/ shelf behind them so I can utilize all the space. A beautiful cloth lined wicker basket for dishtowels, and my favorite, 2 side by side spice racks to go under a high cabinet so all my spices and vinegars/olive oils are lined up at fingertip reach and easy to grab everything when I cook. She organized all my kitchen drawers and cabinets. She got me two beautiful stainless steel containers for spatula’s, spoons, tongs, etc to go next to the stove at hands reach when I’m cooking. I used to hate my kitchen and my pantry which was an avalanche waiting to happen. Now, all like items are stored together, easy to find, and simple to keep that way. I was so happy, I had her do my bathroom too! Now if I need a band-aid, I have a first aid container to go to. A hair product bin, a drawer for anything regarding teeth/mouth, a drawer for make-up, a drawer for travel size toiletries when I fly…the list goes on and on. I can find everything now, and no more things falling over or stress when I’m looking for something. Time and money well spent, I’m very picky and I would definitely recommend Space of Mine for anyone looking to get more organized. ~ Deborah K. YELP

Bring some order into your life with Space of Mine Published: 08 November 2015 by Knowitall.ch How many times have you wondered what it would be like if you had more time to organize your belongings and bring some order to your life? How much calmer would you be, if all the unnecessary clutter was removed from your home? Well, now you can find out!  Virginie Dor, founder of Space of Mine, offers a professional organizing service designed to help individuals take control of their surroundings. Expert in clutter control, work flow, space planning, and time management, Space of Mine uses proven organizing principles to create customized systems and processes for its clients. In short, Space of Mine specializes in: Residential organizing/daily organizing: – Hands-on home organizing (attic to basement) – Space planning & optimization – Time management & productivity Lifestyle changes & transitions/situational disorganization: – Births & deaths – Marriage, divorces & blended families – Career changes – Limited mobility (aging, illnesses & accidents) Moving & Relocation: – Pack, unpack & organize – Senior move management Chronic Disorganization: – Hoarding – Executive functioning disorders – ADD, ADHD – OCD Asked how she got into the business of organizing, Virginie told knowitall.ch, “Genetics might have something to do with it! Between my father’s 30 color-coded sock drawers and my grandmother’s uncontrollable urge to rearrange furniture in a doctors waiting room, I was born to do this. I have also moved nationally and internationally over 20 times and enjoyed every minute of it, my last move being to Switzerland in September 2014.” She continued, “As far as I can remember, I have always felt an innate desire to help others one way or another. I have volunteered as a childbirth assistant (Doula), worked with refugee children and am now helping people sort through the chaos of their busy lives.” Virginie started her company in 2012 and has been working as a full-time professional organizer since then. As a proud member of the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO), she has had the privilege of studying and working with and for some of the best professionals in the industry. So what makes Space of Mine different to the handful of other professional organizers in Switzerland? Virginie told us, “What separates me from others in this business is not only my extensive training and experience in the US (where the field originated over 30 years ago), but also the fact that I am the only member of the National Organization of Professional Organizers (in Switzerland, France, Italy and Belgium), which is the international industry authority. Members obey a strict code of ethics, and have access to an extensive network of resources, knowledge and continuing education opportunities. Unlike others, I also offer senior move management services (downsizing, move, relocation, and transition to retirement homes) and cater to individuals suffering from limited mobility and memory impairments. On a personal level, I am particularly attuned to cultures and customs when working with my clients and take

January is Get Organized (GO) Month!

24 February 2016
Published: 06 January 2016 by http://www.knowitall.ch/ By Virginie Dor, Space of Mine January is Get Organized (GO) Month! According to research published in the Journal of Clinical Psychology, organizing is the second-most popular New-Year’s resolution, just after losing weight! Thinking back on it, it seemed to me that organizing your tangible resources, your time, your thoughts, and your energy is the key to reaching all of our other resolutions too. It is no coincidence that the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO) has named January National Get Organized month. Still not convinced? According to a NAPO public survey, 82% of people believe that if they were more organized, their quality of life would improve. So here are a few tips to get 2016 off to a great start:  1. Identify the Benefits Getting Organized Can Have in YOUR Life More space,more money, more time to do the things that matter most in your life…? How about peace of mind, a greater sense of control, lower stress level, better productivity, and increased focus? 2. Decide Where to Start Choose to tackle the area that causes you the greatest stress. Is it the stack of mail spilling over your kitchen table, or your overstuffed garage? Big or small, start with what will make the biggest impact in your daily life. Now that you know where to start, literally write out in your calendar the exact times and dates you will dedicate to getting it done. 3. Break It Down Break down the bigger tasks into manageable projects you can accomplish in 15 to 60 minutes max; and time yourself. As you work, consciously remind yourself that ”all you need to do right now is finish this one space” or “all you need to do for the next 15 minutes is… sort clothing by type.” 4. Use the SIMPLE Method To keep progressing in the right direction and avoid overthinking, use the SIMPLE acronym: S ort I dentify what to keep M ake a home for it P ut it in containers L abel it E stablish a routine 5. Gather Likes with Likes Gather all of your like items together and evaluate them as a group. It’s a lot easier to make decisions on what can go when you’re actually looking at how many you have of each item. Start with broad categories (such as ‘hair’ when organizing your bathroom); and once the first sorting is done, subdivide further into specific categories (hairpins and clips, brushes, products, etc.) And finally, find the right container for it (for example, Ziplocs for small bathroom items.) 6. Put It Where You Use It Being organized is often more about thinking outside the box and fine tuning one’s daily routines than simply finding a home for everything. In order to STAY organized, you will need to find systems that are functional and easy to maintain. Putting things back where they belong should take no more than one or two steps. So no matter how unconventional, put it
