Thank you Miami Neat!

Virginia and Miami Neat are the perfect solution to getting a room situated, organized or unpacked. After moving and downsizing, my kitchen was a challenge to set up. Virginia was able to get the job done and my kitchen now has a better flow to it, is better organized and easier to navigate. You don’t realize you need the help until you get it and see how much it makes a difference. I will be using Miami Neat again and will be recommending them often!
take care and will be in touch –

So thankful for sweet and motivated clients!

Hi Virgina! Thank you so much for coming by and helping me/us! I was so happy with the outcome. I honestly thought I wasn’t going to be able to do it and just “let go”. We all can breath better & Sandro and Sofia have spent everyday watching TV or playing board games in the living room. Thank you for the tips; we are definitely going to take them. The gang is on board to help Mommy. I have recommended you to my boss who enjoued listening to my experience and is in dire need of help with his garage in the gables. Thanks again Virginia….. we appreciate you!

Spring Forward and manage your contacts and passwords

Spring Forward and manage your contacts and passwords

I have been taking an informal poll for a while to see how everyone keeps track of their contacts, business cards, clients, auto and household repairs, numbers and passwords.

So many people forget to record a name or number so when they get a call back from a client, they need to make a repair or find the person, it’s such a struggle to retrieve the information.

In this society of hacking, we do all have to be super careful with passwords and accounts, so I do recommend a password manager like Dashlane or Last pass to keeponline IDs and passwords secure.

If you really want to stay old school with your important data then keep the listing of everything at home in a safe place, but if you need anything while you are out or traveling you have to go home first. You could repeatedly say you forgot your password and update as you go along too.

Many of my clients collect business cards at meetings, on trips or just throughout their days. I see many bagfuls and at this point it has become a big project to figure out what you will actually still need and what you will really use again. Some say they use Camcard, but this still requires you going to the app and taking a photo etc.

Why not just either make these numbers and names into your contacts as you go or if this is not possible then gather this pile and visit it weekly or at least monthly.
What I mean is to go through these notes, scraps, cards and save the ones you will “realistically “ use again on your phone with name, business name, number, and email. Under the note area put a small reminder of why and what they do. Then let the rest go.

Now you will always have this with you and you can quickly update them as needed.

They say “the devil is in the details” and maybe this is true, but in the long run you will save time and feel less stressed.

Why is it a good reason to update your contacts? Because Benjamin Franklin said a long time ago that “for every minute spent organizing, an hour is earned”

Have an organized Spring!

Thank you Virginia!

Thank you so much for helping me today you really are brilliant at this!

2018 Tip of the Year

Every January 1st comes the big pressure for New Year resolutions. Everyone starts a new slate and wants to change and do things that have been put on the back burner for the last year and maybe even for the last decade. I think that is too much to ask of anyone especially after surviving the stressful holiday season. All we can expect as human beings is to balance our everyday lives and try to do better and not strive for perfection. One tip which could help everyone is to read your mail everyday!!!! Make decisions and take action!!!

How long could this take? 5-10 minutes, right? Don’t you receive a lot of junk mail? If it says “presorted standard” on upper corner – it’s not really for you, it’s for whoever will read it. LET IT GO! Stand by the garbage and TOSS IT or if it is recyclable put it in  the bin to go out with recycling.
If it is important or personal stuff or bills, put it where it goes to be paid or keep it in your important slot, envelope, file, in-bin, or how ever your brain is wired to remember to go back to it before your bill is late etc.

If you still receive print newspapers or magazines, cap off the read time at 3 months and then recycle and be done with it because it will begin to cloud your peaceful surroundings.

There are too many other things that we need to make decisions about everyday other than mail. Remember that simply “less is more.” It’s a proven fact that clean and less cluttered surfaces definitely give us a more peaceful feeling in our home living environments.

Why not make February 1st your realistic deadline for starting this new normal.
