Hi! I'm Betsy, founder of simply done organizing
Everything had a home. Everything was right in front of me.
This seemingly mindless but satisfying spring cleaning left me questioning, why had I let the excess take over? And where else is this excess preventing me from feeling this sense of calm?
I've always had a passion for home decorating, and for organizing. But I’d never made the connection of these two things until now. What if organization could also be decoration?
Cue, the next two months of complete home overhaul. Cue my habits rubbing off on my husband and kids. (Literally. My toddler began to put things away without being asked because he knew where things belonged. I mean, what!?) Cue my mother asking for help organizing her new house. Cue my Type A personality bubbling up and overflowing with joy. Cue, simply done organizing.
One day, after cleaning out our overflowing baking pantry, I decided to only put back items that I used frequently. I lined the shelves neatly with newly filled containers, labeled each one, and left empty (gasp!) space behind each item. I donated a huge box of miscellaneous odds and ends, threw away old and expired food, labeled an excess bin of supplies to stash in an area that is not prime kitchen real estate, and stepped back to look at my work.
It. Was. Beautiful. I felt inspired, satisfied and a sense of calm.
As for a little more about me? I’m a thirty-something mama of two awesome boys, Matthew (3) and Joey (1). I am a wife to my incredibly supportive husband, Jon. We live in Holland, Michigan. I am an educator by heart and by trade and just finished my tenth year teaching middle school special ed. I’m also a Michigan State Spartan, a crafter, a sister to three crazy brothers, and 50% Italian. Did I mention my love for food?
Thanks for stopping by simply done organizing. We service homes and businesses in Holland, Michigan and surrounding cities in West Michigan. We can’t wait to meet you!
