We had 9 entries for our 1st-ever My Peaceful Kitchen contest! Local families submitted pictures of their cluttered kitchens and shared what life challenges they have experienced in the last 3 years, such as downsizing, illness, caregiving, moving, etc. The winner gets a complete decluttering and organizational makeover of their kitchen (worth over $1000!) and is featured in a new web video series called My Peaceful Home, which features local families getting organized homes with the help of professional organizers. We are pleased to announce that our winner is Louisa from the mid-Cape area. Louisa has experienced a number of life's curve balls recently, including a major home remodel, caregiving for her elderly father, and the death of her mother, in addition to daily challenges such as being the mother of elementary-aged twins. She has shared that she has struggled with organization for many years, but that the recent events in her life have caused the level of disorganization to rise sharply. "Team Peace" is happy to help Louisa get a Peaceful Kitchen soon!
We had a sold-out full house at the organizing speaking event on January 17th at Sbaba Skincare in Yarmouth. The program, delivered by Julie Brooks of Peaceful Place Home and Office Organizers, was 1-2-3 GO! How to Declutter and Organize Any Room in Your House. Thanks to all who attended, we raised $260 for Dress for Success Cape Cod, a local nonprofit which provides professional clothes for women entering the workforce. This group of attendees were great about sharing their personal struggles and emotional attachments to items. They left the evening with a deeper understanding of what mental obstacles stand between them and an organized house, and most of all intention and motivation!Many thanks to Sheryl Baba for hosting the event at her lovely spa.
