You were designed to live a joyful, serene lifestyle. Enjoy working, playing or relaxing from ANY room in the house.In my home, if it ain’t easy, it’s not getting done. Your home needs plenty of clean, clear space for you to function well. Items need designated storage spots for everything you do over and over again to flow effortlessly. If items are easy to get to, then they will be easy to put away! No matter what size your home is, you have the perfect amount of space to live a great life and enjoy your home. It’s up to you to get your items streamlined down to the space you have – and if it’s a large home, to remove items you no longer want even if you have tons of empty storage spaces – until you are so stinkin’ pleased with your results that your entire outlook on life and your demeanor changes. You are too optimistic and good-spirited of a person to let clutter hold you back from being your best self – that person you are designed to be. Your personality, confidence, and optimism is what people are attracted to, and if you run a business you’ll have more energy to keep growing a wonderful business with clientele you love. Your home has so much influence over how you interact with life. Love it and take care of it, and it will reciprocate to help take care of you.
Clutter, messy pile-ups, and chaos can make you a bit crazy at times. And exhausted.It happens. Way too often. If “too much stuff” is overwhelming your nervous system or your senses, causing you frustration or distress…you can change that. Beyond a shadow of a doubt, I know that clutter-related stress on our nervous systems hurts our minds, hearts and bodies. And, our relationships. Organization and letting go is a lifestyle that allows us to be our best healthy selves. Hang in there if you’ve gotten stuck on what to do or how to make an area truly functional. If you’ve started this process but you’ve had a lot happening and haven’t been able to finish what you’ve started, then…
Try not to get discouraged or give up! Keep your thoughts on the reason this is so important for you before you move onto the next chapter of your life.Keep chipping away at what you’ve started on organizing. You’re going to get there! And, I’m willing to bet you’ll absolutely love the well-organized, streamlined side of life. It’s a beautiful, beautiful experience. A lifestyle. If you only make one major change in your life to help prevent and relieve stress, I can not emphasize enough how much a streamlined, beautiful, well-organized, serene home and workspace positively impacts your attitude, personality, focus, concentration and productivity. Not to mention your confidence and smile. It’s so contagious. You’ll be a different person. The person you were designed to be.
And, if the way your home looks, feels, and functions is extremely important to you, then I’m happy you’re here.You’re in the right place. You can find a lot of free materials to help you get started.
I never realized that in a couple of (Skype) sessions with Melody, I could have my office completely organized and functional for me! I accomplished more in several hours than I ever did in months trying to tackle things on my own. Anyone who works with Melody, listens to her ideas, and implements them, will have much better peace of mind in their life. She’s not only amazing at what she does, but a wonderful, kind, caring person. Cassie Winterhalter
Hi, I’m Melody Granger.(Looking for an official bio? Scroll to the bottom of this page.) As a child I was always, always, always cleaning. There were 6 kids in the house. The mess, oh, the messes we’d make. I’d lock everyone out of the house, just so I could sweep everything into a pile, pull out the good stuff and throw away the rest. We had SO MANY random clothes, omg. I wore mismatched socks to school – and it wasn’t cool back then. I learned to love doing laundry. As for the chores, I created a chore schedule and it hung proudly for everyone to know who did what room, on which day. At a young age and into adulthood, friends and family often requested my help to clean the house.
I didn’t just clean… I emptied cabinets, closets, and gathered papers.Between my strong visual-spatial skills and natural knack to clean spaces and making them really neat and streamlined, at the age of 29 I found myself quitting my job and starting an organizing business. The kicker is that I had no idea that I had honed “organizing” skills. I literally had to look up the word in the dictionary to understand what “organizing” was!
So from a very young age, I instinctively or intuitively new that a clean home was a happier, healthier home. Add a business to the life mix, and words like organization, systems and productivity take on a whole new meaning.It has often been a juggling act, and a demanding journey. During my 10+ years as a professional organizer, I have observed that it doesn’t matter what size house you have, how much money you have access to, or what your age is… we all have similar things behind our cabinet doors, in our closets, stashed under the bed, stored out of sight, or pushed out of the way.
Then, there’s the paper! I won’t mention the paper trauma people get themselves into.The thing about our stuff is that it was perfect for different times in our lives – but we change, mature, grow. Letting go is part of the personal growth process of becoming who we were designed to be. Since our styles change, priorities change, and understanding of life changes, our priorities change. Because of all our changes is why clutter builds up. It happens to people, so you’re not alone. What I do is help you take back control of your space, so you can step into the next phase of your life. And embrace your new lifestyle.
One of my most memorable experiences in my career is when a client went crazy tossing things. (Okay, so most of them end up becoming addicting to tossing!!)She didn’t start off that way, but once she started feeling the freedom from letting go (oh, sweet relief), that spark fueled her rising spirits to tackle more. Honestly, a lot of my clients end up tossing so much that it scares the crap out of me!!! This lady went on to do things she swears she would have never done if she hadn’t purged so deeply – like traveling and exploring in other cities, yoga, and revisiting creative ideas she had put on the back burner. I get to hear stories like hers on a regular basis. It’s exciting. I used to not share this part of the “after” story with others, because I didn’t want them to think they had to get rid of everything to have exquisite life stories to follow. One lady received an offer to turn her book into a movie. Another hired a team of people in her business. And, yet another lady, went on to meet her husband and have a baby.
A common theme for the people I work with is: remodeling, updating and/or moving into a new phase of life.They were working so hard on their own, became overwhelmed, tired, stuck, just didn’t know where to start, or felt like they were going in circles to figure everything out…which led to frustration, and sometimes it was simply taking too long and it was time to get help to just get it done. Can you relate?
My services are for you if you’d like help making the changes you want to happen in your home or home business office, faster than you’ve been able to do alone.All you need is a strong desire to make changes, plus some inspiration, enthusiasm, access to Skype or FaceTime video, and the flexibility to meet with me for several hours at a time. As a private client, you’ll be working directly with me, not an assistant. Oh, and if you’re feeling any embarrassment about those crazy, messy areas, then that’s the first thing you can let go of, because I promise you, every one gets into messy situations. It’s such an innocent thing that happens. Just a part of life! I’ve seen pretty much everything! And struggled with the demands of keeping up a home – which is just like running it’s very own business – plus, add in my own business and with my clients. Chaos has happened in my life on several occassions when my life seemed to be turned upside down – but, I always knew exactly what kind of work I’d have to put in to get my life back again. And be “me” again. So, I can say…damn, I’m glad I had the skills to work thru these BIG changes in life and use my home environment to invigorate and support me, instead of hold me back.
For me, my home environment is my number 1 priority.Always. Why? Because my home environment impacts everything else that I am in life. Privately and professionally. I take you through a guided process, which I honed after years of observing what works and doesn’t work with myself nd clients.
If we work together, once you are smiling from ear to ear from the results, I wish I could declare a law that you MUST have a house cleaning person pop in to help you keep it pristine clean. A housekeeper is a blessing. You may already have someone helping you, like some of my clients do. If so, good for you! AND, I’d enforce a law to pick up after yourself ideally daily and stretching it to at least every 3 days — definitely daily if there’s more than one person in the house.
Getting addicted to streamlining strategies that make life easier and more stress-free is totally worth it.I confidently guide others through the often overwhelming process of cleaning out & re-organizing messy areas. Because you were designed to live a serene life. Serenity and organziation is a lifestyle. It’s a choice. And you’re choosing it by being here. Please reach out if you’d like to learn more about how I can help get this done faster than you’ve been able to do alone.
When I read Melody’s blog, I just felt that she would get me and that she wouldn’t judge me and I KNEW someone with that much passion for organizing could definitely whip me into shape. My sessions with Melody were so easy. I can’t say enough good things about her, but be prepared to put in some work and meet her halfway. While I was sad to be ending my private coaching sessions with Melody, I was so grateful to have had her in my life! She taught me so much more than just de-cluttering and organizing. Nancy Urena
