Got a mess? Organizing workshops coming up

Getting organized is a task nearly everyone has on their to-do list. And, for most, it often falls to the bottom of that list every day, as so many other important tasks take precedence. If one of your New Year’s resolutions is to get organized, you can finally get some help to make that goal a reality.

The Mess to Success Organizing Workshop Series will be on four Tuesdays: Jan. 22, Feb. 26, March 26 and April 23, from 7-8 p.m. at the Greater Valley Chamber of Commerce, 10 Progress Drive. To register, email or call her at 203-273-8583. Pre-registration is required.

In this series of free organizing workshops, Cara Brook will cover a variety of topics for both home and office including how to:

• Manage paper.

• Manage time and your calendar.

• Maximize your space.

• Reduce general clutter.

• Use products to enhance your organizing systems.

• Donate or dispose of unwanted items.

Brook is a professional organizer, public speaker and mentor for new organizers. Since February 2004, her company, Strategize.Organize.Simplify. LLC (S.O.S.) has worked with clients to tackle piles of paper, create filing systems, better manage their time, and become more productive in their daily lives.

Brook’s mission as a professional organizer is to work with individuals who are ready for change in their lives and want to become better organized in the process.

Prior to founding S.O.S., Brook worked in a number of senior project management positions in corporate, small business and non-profit arenas. Brooks received Fairfield County’s 40 Under 40 Award in 2009. She is a member of the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO) and a past president of the Connecticut Chapter. In addition, Brook is a member of the FOCUS Organizers consortium, offering workshops and Ask-the-Organizer panel discussions on various organizing topics.
