"Debt is never the real problem.  It is only symptomatic of the real problem:  greed, self-indulgence, impatience, fear, poor self-image, lack of self-worth, lack of self-discipline, or something else."  - Ron Blue, "Master Your Money" (c) professional organizer in Nashville professional organizer in Franklin organize house

compulsive hoarding

is the excessive acquisition of possessions (and failure to use or discard them) even if the items are worthless, hazardous or unsanitary.  It impairs mobility and interferes with basic activities, including cooking, cleaning, showering, and sleeping.

The "t's"... we lack the time, tools, techniques, thought processes, or it's just not our thing.  We want to get organized but don't have the time, or get overwhelmed, or don't know where to start.  I hear it all the time, so you're not alone.  Be kind to yourself.  professional organizer in Nashville organize house professional organizer in Franklin

credit & finances

have also changed a lot in the last 40 years.  As a result, our parents & teachers weren't equipped to prepare us for handling our credit & finances.   Years are spent in preparing us for occupations or professions, but generally less than a few hours in the use and planning of money, debt, investments, insurance, and estate  organization.  We need to rethink our finances in terms of how to strategically use our hard earned money, get our financial houses in order with a "cradle to grave" approach.
