Why Organizing Matters

A client recently shed tears after we created her first eight file folders. Reflecting on ten years of helping people sort and toss their belongings in homes and offices, I’ve started to ask myself “Why does organizing matter?” It matters more to some than others, but no one can deny that life is easier when you can find what you need when you need it. As life becomes increasingly digital, messes in the physical realm still abound. Creating order out of chaos is as cathartic as ever. I’d like to share why organzing one’s space in this world is oftentimes a joyful turning point in one’s life.

About Kacy Paide:

Kacy Paide of The Inspired Office is an Office Organizing Expert. She loves to do what most people hate: sort paper. Many of her clients are out-of-sight-out-of-mind creative entrepreneurs who refuse to use filing cabinets. Always up for a challenge, Kacy creates paper flow systems and beautifully functional offices for people who are reluctant to file, but have reached their breaking point. Kacy also is a self-proclaimed “crazy plant lady” and would rather be in Bali.
