Frisco is a great place to live, work, and raise a family.
But most of us would agree: Along with enjoying our thriving city and all it has to offer, come busy days and nights keeping up with kids’ homework, various activities, our careers, and, maybe, tick off a few items on our neverending ‘to do’ list. In the midst of all of this we also try to manage our homes and maintain some sort of family meal time gathering, before we find time to socialize with friends or even just grab a little ‘Me’ time. Where does it all end??
Stacey Rayburn is on a mission to help relieve our stress and simplify our lives. Recently, I chatted with the Frisco mom of two, and she explained, “I think I have found my calling. I am honestly passionate about this and, if I can help people alleviate a little of the daily stress, then that makes me feel so good.”
Working in the corporate world for years, she knew she had a yearning to do something else that made a difference. While helping friends with house projects, she realized the skill of practical home organization was something she not only enjoyed, but was also good at. Stacey calls her new business “Organized Chaos with a Twist”, and she can tailor her service to fit your specific needs no matter how small or large the area. From a simple kitchen junk drawer to a whole house that needs attention. Stacey can help create order from the chaos.
As a mom, she understands what a lot of us are constantly dealing with just to keep the house running. Many times it’s simpler to shove something in a closet or drawer than deal with the right place for the clutter in that moment. Before you know it, there is a buildup of ‘stuff’ and the thought of opening said drawer or closet just brings on another headache. Stacey will help tackle the problem with a logical approach and provide simple, cost effective solutions to quickly rearrange the space.
Consultation is FREE! She will look at any, or every, area of your home or garage that needs to be overhauled or reorganized. Her approach is simple: “There is always something that needs to be purged or donated, but we just put it off. So I usually start by dividing your room or area into 4 distinct areas or piles, one of which has to be a purge pile.” Stacey can even help you dispose of those purged items that may not necessarily be trash.
She is happy to utilize your own storage items – recycle baskets, boxes, and storage cabinets that you already have. Alternatively, she will shop for you to find the items that fit your needs.
Below, she shares some tips to get you started.
- Pick an area to organize (not too big) and start there. Do not go overboard with more than one area. This is crucial to actually completing the project.
- Decide what you want toaccomplish with this area, develop aPOA (Plan of Action):
- Do you want to downsize this area?
- Do you want to just organize this area?
- Do you want to completely overhaul this area?
- Always start left to right on a project. This helps break up the overwhelming feeling and provides you a starting point. No more of that dreaded question, “Where do I even start?”
- After 30 minutes to an hour, get up and take a break. Come back to the area 10 minutes later, and continue. This is very important because it allows you time to refresh.
- Once your project is complete, step away, take a deep breath, smile, and be proud of what you accomplished! YOU DID IT!
While many families are still expanding and growing within their homes, or searching for a larger home, she also offers a downsizing service for those who find themselves in the “empty nest” situation or are simply looking to move to a smaller house or apartment.
And, wait: Besides being a wiz with the decluttering tasks, her services extend to other areas, such as party planning, budgets, bill organizing, filing solutions, and shopping.
So, identify your areas of chaos and give Stacey a call – she is extremely flexible, and can meet you in the evenings or on weekends. Take the first step to bringing order back into your home and life with a FREE consultation.
