In a recent interview at the Los Angeles Organizing Awards, I was asked by Carlos Amezuca if being emotionally attached to our possessions makes it difficult to get organized?  Often we feel that by giving up an unwanted gift, or keepsakes no longer used, the memories of treasured times will disappear.

When we have more than we can manage the things that really matter get lost.  Professional Organizers gently encourage clients to release what is holding the future at bay. 

It can be difficult to let go when memories are attached to clutter.  But letting go of unwanted things, does not cause the people whose memories are associated will leave our lives.  In fact too much “stuff” in our home and life can cause the people and things we really love to be lost.

Is clutter holding you back from starting your organizing journey?  Traveling does not require speed.  Set your own pace.  Begin reviewing your clutter a little at a time, one space at a time.  By recognizing your emotional attachment it will be easier to appreciate the joy of letting go and moving forward to an organized life.

The 2011 Los Angeles Organizing Awards were held January 29 at the Universal Sheraton.  This one of a kind event recognized the people, products, and services around the country that help us live better at home and work more efficiently.  The Los Angeles chapter of the National association of Professional Organizers is the host of the annual gala.  Get It Together LA! was a finalist in the Best Closet Design Firm category.
