Alison Kero grew up with 2 different organizational styles being modeled to her. One parent was precision neat while the other was a pack rat.
Through her teenage and college years Alison lived more like her pack rat parent but when she became an adult and started living on her own, she searched for ways to easily get and stay organized.
When Alison became a decluttering expert in 2004, she constantly searched for ways to make her clients lives and her own, easier through organization.
However, it wasn’t until 2015 while recovering from an illness that she discovered what the process was trying to show her.
Clutter wasn’t just physical, it was emotional and spiritual as well. However, by starting with the physical clutter and using the 5 Main Organizational Steps, she was able to start transforming her life in a truly meaningful way.
She also found that as the physical clutter left her life, the emotional and spiritual clutter were easier to identify and remove as well. Suddenly she felt she was living an easier, happier, more authentic life.

Have a designated place for a particular item, so you always know where something belongs.
