Hello! My name is Olivia, owner & professional organizer of Let Liv Organize. My goal is help you make your home organized while not breaking the bank. I love to create organized, functional and comfortable spaces for your home, office or business. Specializing in clutter removal, bereavement cleaning, downsizing and organizing on a budget.
Contrary to popular belief and current trends- you don’t need to spend a fortune on organizing supplies and tools. You can get organized using what you have already and more importantly getting organized has a lot to do with getting rid of clutter and downsizing. I speak from experience as I have been currently downsizing and organizing my parents house for the last two years.
Organizing helps me stay focused, on task and keeps me sane. When my mother passed away 3 years ago organizing her room was a therapeutic experience. It helped me process some of the anger and frustration I had about her sudden death. Along with keeping me extremely busy,it was also a trip down memory lane back to my childhood, her childhood- so many beautiful memories- bittersweet.
When an individual passes away to the next dimension they leave their Earthly belongings. Family, friends or someone will inevitably be in the position to inventory the deceased belongings. Bereavement organizing/Swedish death cleaning is a sensitive area and because I have experience I knew I could help others when their loved ones are called to eternal paradise.
I understand the importance of memorabilia, pictures, hand written notes, letters, cards. I also understand the pain that holding onto items can harbor and the value of letting go.
I understand that many of us inherit items, heirlooms, family treasures. One of the perks of organizing my parent’s is going back in time through old pictures, vintage goodies and random retro finds. They also saved everything so I find a lot of fun stuff. It’s always an adventure- the house is like a time machine.
In other words- I am not going to throw out any of your important stuff and more importantly I don’t make clients throw away items! Just recently I have been on a road to minimalism and to coming to terms that I had a shopping addiction. Many people don’t see it being disorganized, having cluttered or hoarding as a problem but if you’ve been in that environment you know that a cluttered home creates tension and stress. Cluttered house = cluttered mind. When you walk into a hotel room you feel relaxed and peaceful and calm for many reasons but for one is because it is made for a purpose to sleep relax for R&R. You can have that feeling when you walk into a room as well. We decide what items are in our lives we decide the importance of those items.
Now more than ever we are in our homes so we are asking ourselves questions like “do I like my home ?”
“do I like the things in my home ?”
“do I need all the stuff in my home?”
Home improvement, DIY are all becoming more popular than ever since we are so home based. Garages become offices, bedrooms become classrooms. It gets hectic and overwhelming. Clutter and stuff doesn’t have to be overwhelming with an organizer. Trust me I’ve seen it all. Nothing scares me! You see clutter, I see a challenge.
