Interesting piece in The Guardian about our obsession with stuff.
On the loss of a parent and what’s left behind
The Less You Have
Liz is amazing. We met at a time when I was moving apartments and needed to deal with large amounts of clutter in order to make packing, and the overall move, work. She helped guide me through a huge, thorough and complete cleaning and reorganizing process that changed the way I use- and see- my living space. I can now get use of things because I can find them, and also because I have less. She truly helped me shed the unnecessary.
Liz Savage’s calm, good cheer, insights and natural orderliness turned tasks I had been dreading into projects I could actually accomplish- and sometimes even ones I could enjoy!
“We had a large closet in our front hallway that needed some serious attention. After speaking with Liz about our specific needs for the project, she quoted me a very fair and reasonable price and we made it happen. We spent a great afternoon together going through everything and reorganizing. We couldn’t have done it without her.”
“Liz is a magician. She comes over to a place of chaos, works her magic, and leaves behind order and calm – and me feeling a lot happier.”
“After working with Liz, I have to tell you guys that she’s great. We got more done in less time than any other organizer I’ve ever worked with, and I’ve worked with many since 20 years ago in my ongoing battle with clutter and disorganization. I’ll have her here working on the next layer early next year. Her rates are also very reasonable.”
