Hey! I'm Crystal Nerpel. If you landed here because you are struggling with clutter (big or small / mental or physical) welcome to the club! You are not alone, my friend. I have walked in those same uncomfortable shoes.
My decluttering journey began at the end of 2016 when I finally acknowledged the HUGE gap between the way I was feeling and the way I wanted to feel:
- I wanted to feel calm, relaxed, supported and joyful when I was in my home.
- Instead, I was feeling frustrated, overwhelmed, annoyed and resentful.
The clutter was taking a toll, so I took action! I got organized 100% for ME.
I didn't do it for my family. I didn't do it for my friends. I didn't worry about anyone else's opinions on my slight organizing obsession. I had to do it for my sanity. I know that sounds a little dramatic, but it's true. Decluttering and simplifying gave me peace. It helped me de-stress.
There were growing pains, and I made a lot of mistakes.
It took me about 9 months to feel like I had finally gotten all the clutter under control in my home. I loved how that made me feel. I finally felt the calm, support and joy I had been hoping for. In 2017 I reached out to a few friends and told them I had an idea: I wanted to help other people feel this great by decluttering, de-stressing and simplifying. I asked if I could organize for them. I was hooked. I knew I had to become a professional organizer.
The next step.
After 3 years of organizing for clients I started noticing some common habits and patterns among people who continual struggle with clutter. I now teach people effective, positive decluttering habits so they can take ownership of their own clutter.
I take a mindful approach to decluttering: I help my clients plan, get clear on their priorities and core desired feelings. I am here to guide, encourage and allow my clients to step into their power.
I know, first hand, the feeling of empowerment that comes from getting control of the clutter and chaos. I look forward to celebrating with you as you release clutter to open up space for more abundance = An abundance of freedom, clarity, strength, wisdom and love!
My passion to teach others how to declutter, de-stress and simplify their lives comes from a genuine place of understanding and compassion. I pass no judgements because I believe we are all doing the best we can with with our current level of understanding.
