Home Organizing for Baby Boomers & Beyond
Imagine a leisurely day of wandering through the Portland Farmer’s Market, stopping for a nice latte and some perusing through Powell’s City of Books, and then an afternoon with the grandkids at the Portland Zoo. Sounds fabulous, but you have a houseful of messy, disorganized spaces that need attention. What to do? What if you had a helping hand (or two) to get your home organized and in order, leaving you plenty of time to do what you love?
Susan Weber Organizing is at your service! She works with Baby Boomers who are thinking about (or in the process of) downsizing, moving, and/or changing gears as they head into retirement. From the basement on up to the kitchen and bedrooms, Susan can clear the clutter from your child-raising years. Whether you are planning to move locally or cross-country to a smaller or different type of home or simply want to declutter your house so you can move around more easily or have less to clean around, you will benefit from a professional organizer’s assistance. Susan has supported Portlanders in a variety of organizing scenarios over the past five years. She has worked alongside a retiree to downsize so she could move from the west coast to the east coast. She has helped a semi-retired client set up the kitchen in her new home as she prepared for full retirement. She compassionately offers a hand during life transitions, including going through a lifetime of memorabilia.
Getting organized today will also ease the burden on your adult children in the future. Susan can set up “vital documents” files that you can keep at-the-ready. It includes important papers such as wills, financial documents, and medical information that is available in one handy place in case of emergency.
Susan can also help her Baby Boomer clients to age-in-place. As we get older, the risk of falling increases, so removing clutter and assessing the home for safety is imperative. She can also sort through expired food and medications, among other tasks. She has many resources in the Portland area, from handymen who can install grab bars and painters who can spiff up spaces, to scrap haulers to clear out the basement and professionals to assist with estate clearing.
If you are ready to free yourself of the clutter, and want to enjoy more time with family and friends, please call 503-887-6203 for a free phone consultation.
Home-Based Business Organizing
If your office is not organized, you’re not functioning at maximum efficiency. If you need assistance setting up a new filing system, creating better work flow, or digging through a backlog of paperwork, Susan can become your most trusty resource. She helps self-employed Portlanders become better business owners, thanks to her ability to think outside the box to find creative solutions.
She has assisted a variety of small business owners over the past years. One client, a residential and commercial property manager, needed an updated, streamlined paper management system. She now visits him monthly for short maintenance sessions, and he calls her his “personal trainer of professional organizing.” On a different note, she helped a minister set up a filing system to manage the never-ending flow of paperwork. And to showcase her creative side, she worked with a stained-glass artist to organize her studio full of tools, materials, and show props. No matter the type of business, all small business owners have the same needs for an organized space, a personalized
paper management system, and simple systems to keep everything working perfectly.
In addition, Susan has a soft spot for working with people affected by ADHD. It takes a special professional organizer to help these clients succeed in their both their everyday living and business management. From time management to paperwork, she can compassionately guide ADHD clients to get a handle on life once and for all. She understands that they may need shorter organizing sessions and be given more time to think and process information. Acting as an accountability partner, she ensures that the work will not only get done, but stay done.
Before becoming a professional organizer, Susan was an administrative assistant for 30 years. So she truly understands the needs of the small business owner and is ready to make your business the best it can be. Those who work with her find they save money in the long run, and have less frustration and increased productivity daily.
If you would like to become more productive and efficient, with plenty of time to focus on both your business, family, and hobbies, please contact Susan for a free phone consultation at 503-887-6203.
