Hi! I'm Crystal Nerpel.
I specialize in helping people declutter, de-stress and simplify.
Declutter, De-Stress, Simplify:
This is not only my business motto, it is my way of life. However, I didn't always know how to declutter, de-stress and simplify.
Before I became an organizing expert I was an overwhelmed, frustrated, stressed-out mama who couldn't get her family to pick up after themselves.
Before the words declutter, de-stress, simplify were in my life:
I used other, negative words...
"I feel like I'm the only one who ever picks up or cleans, and there's always so much clutter. We have way too much stuff we don't even use. My family should pick up after themselves without being told." You get the idea.
After I learned to declutter, de-stress, simplify
In 2016 something shifted and I started to tell myself a new story...
"I deserve to feel at peace, calm and inspired when I walk into my home. I can take control of this chaos so that I can live the life I want to live. It's OK if I pick up after my family because having a decluttered, peaceful home makes me so much more happy than always nagging and complaining."
This felt so much better, so I started to declutter, de-stress and simplify!
Something awesome happened...
My family started pitching in with chores. They do their own laundry. They always help out. I still pick up shoes and clothes that have been dropped on the floor, but I do it with gratitude and feel like I am living my best life.
I now have the privilege of helping other people redefine their messy stories!
I know, first hand, the feeling of empowerment you feel from getting control of the clutter and chaos. It feels like floating on Cloud Nine!
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.
Meet My People!
These lovely people are a big part of Cloud Nine Organizing's success. They let me practice my declutter, de-stress, simplify techniques on them, and they are my biggest cheerleaders.
For 24 years, I have been married to a smart, creative, sweet man who supports my mission to declutter, de-stress and simplify the world, one baby-step at a time.
Our children are Tori and Barret. Barret is in middle school and Tori is in her first year of college. I'm a proud mama!
We LOVE to spend family time at our ranch in Loving, TX with our dog, our cat and cows. Life is simple on the ranch, so it's my happy place.
