Guest Blogger: Lindsay @ Neat As You Please
My name is Lindsay and I write a small little blog called Neat As You Please. It’s in its baby stages, but it’s probably my favorite blog yet. I’ve had two other blogs in the past, but this one really hits on my passion: organizing.
HOW in the world can someone be so in love with organizing, you ask? I’m still figuring that one out. What I have realized, though, is that cleaning your best friend’s room for six hours as her birthday present in 8th grade is not something normal kids do.
After much debate, I’ve finally started to blog about my projects. I’ve learned that before and after pictures can be pretty rewarding! My future plans include joining the National Association of Professional Organizers and helping people that aren’t in my circle of family and friends!
In the organizing world, most people have a niche, something they’re really good at, so that they can get lots of clients wanting the same kind of organizing. As I build my portfolio, I’ll be doing all sorts of different rooms and spaces. My goal right now is to become as experienced as possible before going into my niche market.
A small digression:
One of my blogs, Over on 66, talks about the funny things that happened while I was living with my grandparents. What I don’t talk about too often over there is my grandma’s worsening Alzheimer’s/dementia. It was hard, and the amount of work caretakers have to do everyday to keep the other happy is astounding (especially when the caretaker is 88!).
IN conclusion, you can probably guess who I want to help: families dealing with a loved one with Alzheimer’s disease. I must say, I’ve always been a fantastic labeler (*brushes shoulder off) and with these patients, everything needs to have a safe place.
So, there you have it! I wasn’t planning on giving you a complete history of why I’m passionate about organizing but it happened!
Love for organizing + sick grandparent= my new goal in life.
If you’d like to be one of the people that helps build my portfolio, or you just want some organizing tips and tricks, head over to my blog Neat As You Please and look around! I post something new every Monday.
