Working with
Senior Clients
 

Every household receives copious amounts of paper in the form of bills, advertisements, newspapers, magazines, announcements, legal documents, coupons, etc.  Imagine knowing what to do with it when it came in.  Imagine how much time it would save to have a system in place so you don’t have to figure it out each time.  Imagine how much room it would save to not have stacks of paper piling up.  We address all these issues and create simple systems of organization for all paper flow.  

Bedroom organization

Everything Has A Place  goes through your entire bedroom including closet(s) and clothes. Furniture may be rearranged to make the room more attractive.




Everything Has A Place works with children of all ages to organize their rooms and help them let go of things they no longer want or need. The child learns valuable lessons such as how to make decisions about what’s important to them and how to create a space that reflects what feels good to them.

 

Each child is empowered to make decisions and help in the process of creating a space that works for them. Kids who have participated in this “clean up” and decision-making process are more apt to keep their rooms in good order on their own because of a new ownership they feel.  They can bring this new skill to any space and when their rooms become messy again, they know how to bring them back to equanimity. 

Children's and teenager's rooms organization


​Closets often become overstuffed and disorganized and a place for everything takes on a new meaning. Everything Has A Place goes through everything and creates order in every closet.

Closet organization

Most people accumulate many clothes of different sizes and styles in their lifetime.  Tova goes though your clothes with you to determine what fits, what looks good and helps you let go of clothes that aren’t attractive or you don't want or no longer represent who you are. 

Clothes

We create an overall plan for how the space will be organized.  We offer options as to what kinds of organizing devices you could use with consideration to your pocketbook and based on your needs.  Then we go through every thing piece by piece.  

Garage organization

This includes fine-tuning, culling and creating new file systems.  We rearrange furniture to make the work place look and feel attractive.  We go through all of the paperwork to get a handle on it by sorting, filing, recycling or shredding and then create systems for dealing with paper when it comes in.  We create your home office to be used the way you always intended to use it.

Home office organization

How a kitchen is organized makes a huge difference in how it feels and the enjoyment of spending time in it.  Everything Has A Place addresses where to put everything including how to organize things you rarely use or use only for special occasions.   We organize cupboards, cabinets, drawers and pantries.

Kitchen organization

Playroom organization

Children respond to neatness and order and spaces that are easy to clean up.  Everything Has A Place creates this in every playroom.  Whether it’s boxes, baskets or shelves or rearranging the room for a better flow, we create spaces that feel good for children to play in.  

Paper Flow

Every household receives copious amounts of paper in the form of bills, advertisements, newspapers, magazines, announcements, legal documents, coupons, etc.  Does it feel like you’re drowning in paper? Imagine how it would feel to know what to do with it when it came in.  Imagine how much time it would save you to have a system in place so you don’t have to figure it out each time.  It saves lots of room in your home to not have stacks of paper piling up everywhere.  Everything Has A Place addresses all these issues and creates simple systems of organization for all paper flow.  

Everything Has A Place specializes in helping senior clients to organize, downsize or relocate.  Many have lost a loved one and may need to downsize and relocate to an assisted living facility.  They may need to go through the deceased one’s belongings.  Tova understands how emotionally difficult this is and has compassion for this process.  She feels honored to work this intimately with clients at a time when they are vulnerable and really need her help.

Paper Flow 

Packing and post-move unpacking and home set-up:  We are happy to assist you in moving out or in or both.  

 

We are happy to take full responsiblity or to assist you in packing your belongings in an efficient, organized fashion for a quick, systematic unpacking at your new location.  

 

We will work with you or the moving company during the entire process. Ideally, we would help you organize your belongings before you pack so that you take with you only the things you need and want. 

 

If time doesn’t allow this approach, we will help you pack everything now and on the other end we will help you cull what is no longer needed.  In any case, we will help unpack, put away and organize everything so that your new home feels wonderful in short order.
