NYC Professional Organizer’s 30 Tips to Simplify Your Life

Simplify your life… a professional organizer’s goal in both big cities like NYC or small towns. It even sounds simple. Or maybe it sounds daunting. If your life is complicated by stuff you don’t use and activities you don’t enjoy, simplifying might seem like just one more thing on your to-do list. And it’s hard to define. Simplifying your life may require different steps and result in different outcomes than the steps and outcomes for your friend, your co-worker, your sister. Simplifying your life may be different if you live in a New York City apartment than if your home is a farm upstate.
