As a NYC professional organizer, I have been focusing all month on the upcoming national preparedness month and America’s PrepareAthon in order to serve my clients and increase awareness throughout the city.

As a NYC professional organizer, I can say that one of my home organizing tips is to focus on adopting a proactive mindset rather than a reactive one. By thinking ahead – whether it’s choosing your next day’s outfit before going to bed, preparing school lunches for the next day, or consolidating trips to the office supply store – we are better able to address whatever comes our way.  When it comes to being prepared for disasters, though, planning ahead is an absolute necessity. So, let’s get planning!
