You can save money. You'll know what you already own, eliminating the need to buy duplicate items. A professional organizer can help you find the perfect organizing products for your space and lifestyle, so you stop wasting money on things you don't need or won't work.


You can become more productive and efficient. A professional organizer can create order and structure out of chaos. You'll receive systems that work for your dominant learning style, your lifestyle, your needs, your challenges, and your dreams.


You'll have a positive self-image and ditch the shame. Once your home or office is neat and tidy, you won't feel embarrassed to have guests visit. The guilt will fade away as you take pride in your surroundings.


You'll have a healthier environment. Physical and emotional clutter obscures your surroundings. An organized home and office is more easily cleaned. Lose the clutter and cut down on time spent moving piles of paper and stuff around.


Your stress level will decrease dramatically. When you can find what you need, are on top of your to-dos, and arrive on time, you'll feel calmer and have more peace of mind. No more feeling overwhelmed by life -- you'll be the one in control.


You'll discover more time for yourself. When you're organized, your days go as planned, and you get a lot more done. That leaves more time to indulge in a little "me time."


Your energy will shine. Clutter is a mask and a professional organizer can help you take off that mask. Once the clutter is removed, you can showcase your talents, skills, and personality and have the life you deserve.

Faithful Organizers



April 2014



April 15th has come and gone. And, if you're like many people, you may be looking for creative ways to save money. Well, believe it or not, being organized can actually save you loads of  money. We promise! 


In fact, as a little end-of-tax-season gift from us here at Real Order, we've compiled a list of Seven Ways Being Organized Saves You Money:
  1. You save money by not purchasing duplicate items since you can find what you need. Everything has a "home" and things are returned to their rightful place.
  2. Donating your unwanted furniture, clothes, appliances, books, etc., is a great way to remove the clutter from your life, receive a nice tax break, and even more important, help someone in need.
  3. You're better able to stay focused on priorities, getting more done in less time - and time is money.
  4. You're less stressed emotionally, which benefits you physically, keeping you healthy and out of the doctor's office.
  5. You'll have a more positive self-image and be less likely to purchase things you really don't need to fill an emotional void.
  6. You're better able to preserve and take care of your possessions when you can easily access them because your space is not cluttered.
  7. Your financial records are in order, bills are paid on time, and you have a high credit score.
There you have it, being organized really does save you money! Check out the rest of this month's newsletter for other money-saving organizational tips...


If we can help you get organized and set up for great financial savings, contact the Real Order team today!


Best wishes,

Money-Saving Resources



Bills, Bills, Bills!


Are you losing money each month to interest charges and late fees on your bills? Reduce the stress of bill paying, as well as keep some extra money in your pocket, by establishing a system and schedule for paying your bills.


Keep your bills in one place, separate from other mail and papers. File them there as soon as they arrive. Bills won't get misplaced and you won't waste time searching for them when you sit down to make payments.


Set a regular time to pay them; for example, every Wednesday, or on the 1st and 15th of the month - create a schedule that works for you. Make bill paying a part of your regular routine and it will be easier to stay on top of it.


Consider setting up a bill-pay service through your bank. Bills can be sent electronically to you or to the bank. You can then pay online, or set up regular automatic payments through your bank's bill pay system. No paper bills, no checks to write, no stamps and no late payments.


Budget billing from your utility providers will help to balance your costs over the year. If your utility providers offer this service, they will look at your usage for the past year and average your billing over 12 months so you pay the same amount each month.


Repurposing Household Containers

Whether you're on a budget or just want to do your part to protect the environment, recycling and repurposing household organizing containers makes good sense. Here are a few ideas to get you started:


Shoe Boxes - They're the perfect size and shape for holding so much more than shoes. Stash small gardening tools, sort socks, or hold special cards. Use your imagination!


Oatmeal Boxes, Coffee Cans, Tall Chip Containers - These drum-shaped containers can hold anything tall and lean, from kitchen tools to paint brushes.


Check Boxes - Organize office supplies such as pens, rubber bands, note cards, and envelopes. Or configure a few in your junk drawer for a perfect fit.


Mint Tins - These small containers can hold tiny things like push pins or paper clips. They also make great travel buddies for jewelry.




"Our homes should be the antidote to stress, not the cause of it."



DiningMost of us recommend restaurants, movies or mechanics to our family and friends.
