About Strong With Grace
My name is Heather, and I like to organize.
I feel like that is a secret confession. Here’s another one:
Even though I love organizing, there’s one thing I’m not: an OCD perfectionist living in a magazine-worthy home.
As a mom of three, keeping up with the kids and keeping the home functional takes up a lot of energy. I don’t have the time (or the natural inclination) to make my home uber-tidy. But I DO like it organized with easy systems for meal planning and storing the stuff we need.
- I believe that home should be cozy and lived in.
- I think a tidy kitchen is a worthy pursuit…
- …though at times my counters aren’t 100% clutter-free.
(My first tendency is to leave piles on flat spaces, but I’m learning better habits day by day!)
Those habits help clutter find a home as well as maintain the functional organization I’ve created in our home. And I want to share those helpful habits with you!
To do just that, I’ve created a FREE gift for you– this super handy “How To Declutter” Checklist that will help you beat overwhelm and easily start organizing right away. You can grab it here:
A BIT ABOUT HEATHER
As a military wife, I’ve lived in 8+ homes, and I lived in even more than that before I married my Navy Pilot at age 30. I’ve spent countless hours packing, unpacking, organizing and reorganizing those homes.
Through decluttering a hundred times over, I’ve gained insight to the ins and outs of Goodwill runs, the need for clear storage tubs, and a glass of wine at the end of the day.
Though I was born in Oregon, I LOVE the sunshine of warmer shores like Florida and especially San Diego. After moving about the country with my man in uniform, we now live in the greater Seattle area with our three girls (8, 5, & 3) and a little grey kitten named Sprite.
I played and coached basketball for years and am also certified as a PE teacher who ironically loves sitting behind a computer creating digital products and writing blog posts.
And as you might have guessed (insert dramatic music!), I’m a bit of an organizing nerd.
CONFESSIONS: I was the one who volunteered to clean out and organize the basketball team storage closet, and even organized a sales table where we could sell retro T’s at games.
Also, at my daughter’s school when I was asked to deliver a few items to the lost and found, I ended up reorganizing the whole area once I got there.
I can’t stop myself!
So, the teacher/coach and organizing nerd in me gets so excited to encourage other moms and help them achieve their organization goals– it’s so rewarding!
I’m here to give you step-by-step instructions on creatively organizing your stuff and your kids’
junk treasures too. You’ll also find a bit of inspiration and motivation to get yourself organized.
I can’t do your organization for you (Mary Poppins, where are you?!), but I can lead you inch by inch through the messy corners, closets, and crammed spaces of your home. I can teach you my best tips and be your cheerleader to help you reach a point where your spaces are functional and liveable.
And you can bet I’ll raise a glass to you because of what you accomplished!
- Organizing is an ongoing project, a continual goal, and a completely doable accomplishment for anyone, even those of us who aren’t OCD and naturally tidy.
- We don’t have to live in a magazine-worthy home to enjoy our spaces and our families.
So put your game face on, grab a few empty bins, and let’s get organizing! I can’t wait to get to know you!
Pssst- Don’t forget to grab your free checklist here!
