It is Erev Yom Tov and you have just completed a three-day cooking marathon. With a mere few hours left before candlelighting you are appalled to notice that your kitchen sink is not draining properly. Panic begins to set in.

As a professional organizer, I have a front row seat to the pain of others, be it living life after the loss of a loved one, or dealing with the abundance of stuff that creates confusion and distraction from daily living, or managing the frustration of over buying and handling too many unwanted choices.

When I was a freshman in college, a friend stopped by my dorm room to see what I had done with the place. I had posted pictures and posters...
