Hey friends! My name is Erin. I am an organizing expert, life essentialist, city gal, and ice cream lover. I love traveling, have dabbled in stand up comedy, would live in leggings every day if I could, and will always win in Full House and Golden Girls trivia. I’m very happy with the life I have…but it wasn’t always that way.
I spent years simply going through the motions. Never having truly loved any job I had, I lived in disbelief that anyone could ever really be passionate about their career. To me, a job was just something you did to pay the bills and nothing more; mostly because that was all my experience ever showed me. There were jobs I liked, and jobs I thought I was supposed to enjoy, but never truly did. For over seven years, I had a “safe” state job. However, the nature and high stress of the work caused me a lot of anxiety in and out of the office. There were countless nights where I lost sleep worrying about the years ahead. Seeing coworkers become so jaded, I hated the idea of this being my future.
People would ask me what I really wanted to do, and I was unable to come up with an answer. I would give answers that weren’t genuine, just what I thought people wanted to hear. Hours were spent fixing my resume and applying to jobs that I didn’t even want. Stuck doesn’t describe it — I felt trapped. Not just trapped in a job I didn’t like, but trapped in a life that was unsatisfying. I felt like I was letting down myself, my family, and the universe. I thought about things I was passionate about, and things I liked to do, no matter how small or insignificant I thought they may seem. What would I do if money was no factor?
Over the last several years, I have found it very therapeutic to purge my closet. Getting rid of things that no longer serve me and giving them to someone who can appreciate them was so satisfying. I wondered how I could do THIS for a living. I figured that was just crazy talk, and that I was in no position to try to make that happen — which was, by far, the biggest lie I ever told myself. Ultimately I realized that I would regret never trying, and since we only live once that this was the time to go for it.
On a more personal note, I have seen several family members suffer from Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. On top of what the disease does to the person, I saw what the illness does to family members; as my family became caretakers, the stress of the illness grew within everyone. After seeing my family go through this, I don’t want anyone to have to go through it again. My life has been impacted by Alzheimer’s disease, but there are countless illnesses that impact so many others.
After a lot of soul searching, hard work, and the support of amazing people, here I am! I organize and declutter your closets, take any clothes you no longer want, and resell those clothes with a portion of the clothing sales going to a worthy cause. It is my belief that you can better yourself and feel your best, all while giving back and helping others.
