FAQ Friday: I've read lots of books about organizing, how are you different?

FAQ Friday: should I clear up before you get here?

Please don’t.  I want you to see for yourself that I won’t judge you.  I know that by the time people call me, they’ve often suffered under the disparaging eyes of stern friends and family who urge them to just get it together.  162 more words
