Once you get the business of life organized, you take the onus off tax time. You may feel added pressure if you need to pay Uncle Sam but tallying those deduction totals shouldn’t be the heart-stopper it has been in the past.
Your environment tells the story of your life but not necessarily in the way you might imagine. Why not tweak your environment so that you can consciously control the story being told? Getting organized can have lofty and therapeutic applications.

About Inner Peace Through Outer Order
What is ‘The Zen of Organizing?’ When I started organizing clients, I had no idea that the space itself would literally feel different when I completed a project. I began to wish I had a phrase that I could use so that people would instantly know what to expect. I could have twisted concepts like Feng Shui or Yoga but neither fit the bill exactly. I was describing my dilemma one day when a client said: "Oh! You mean the environment is Zen like." Bingo! In simple terms the Zen of Organizing is experiencing an environment that nurtures rather than sabotages you.
