What would you do if your ADHD wasn't getting in the way?
Do you spend all of your time taking care of all your stuff, instead of doing what you REALLY want to do?
You are doing your best, but you were never taught how to organize and keep it that way, and your brain works differently. You want to move on, learn the string bass, travel, be a better parent, finish college or have a huge garden, but every time to take one step forward, it’s two steps back. You get the kitchen, but the rest of the house falls apart. You are not alone!
What if you had someone working with you who’s been where you are, knows how you’re struggling, and has a plan ? What could you do if you didn’t have to manage all your stuff and your brain and get doing what YOU want to do?
Your brain doesn't need to be scrambled with your space.
Who and Why
In 2019 , I was struggling with my ADHD to keep my house and my family organized and functioning and feeling that nothing I tried was working for me. I lost paperwork, I could never find the craft tools I needed, I spent hours searching for my keys. I noticed that all the books I read didn’t seem to solve my disorganization. I thought that the Marie Kondo method would fix it but even after I purged everything that didn’t bring me joy my house still didn’t look like I’d done anything. I tried other methods but it never worked for more than a few weeks before my house returned to its normal chaos. Because I couldn’t get my house under control I felt that I was a failure. Nothing I was finding was helping me KEEP my house organized. So I took bits and pieces of all the foolproof systems, and made my own program. I realized that the programs were not the problem, but that they were just missing something my neurodivergent brain needed. I needed routines, and accountability, on top of these programs, to make it really work for me. Now, as I have implemented these changes in my life, I can actually stay on top of it, and my life is much more manageable and I can do what I WANT to do. My home supports me, and helps me, instead of distracting me. Now I use this program to help other people make their homes work for them, instead of the other way around. I believe everyone has the ability to be organized, it’s just a skill to learn, not a moral failing. Let me teach you, and walk with you as we get your space under control together.
What is working with us like?
When I arrived at Autumn’s home, she was overwhelmed. There was so much going on, that she didn’t even know where we should start. I told her that it doesn’t really matter where you start, as long as you start somewhere. So we started pulling things out of a single cupboard.
As we started going through things, we found a lot that wasn’t useful anymore, some was old and needed to be thrown out, some was just not useful anymore, and we put in a box to donate, and we started to notice things that should go together, we set up a coffee bar, with all the tools, right at hand.
We put all her breakfast foods together, all the ingredients for dinner etc. We used the bins I had brought, to make her space useable. Now she knew what she had in there, so when she went grocery shopping, she didn’t come home with more of something she already had.
When everything had its designated space, we brought all the people that use it, to admire our hard work, and also to learn where things go, so it would be helpful for everyone!

That’s EXPENSIVE! I can just do it myself
You can, but at what time cost?
Sometimes permission, from an outside source is what you need. I have spent the last 2 years coming up with this program, and I want you to be successful. You will also learn, as we are going along, the process, and be able to use that to do other spaces, on your own. This is an investment in YOUR mental health. You’ll be so glad you did!
My time is valuable, why can’t you just do it?
YOU know best what you need, and how your household runs. While there is some organizing I can do by myself, your participation is essential so I can create solutions that will be useful and beneficial for your household. We will do it in bite sized chunks so that you have time between sessions, to get used to the routines and we can troubleshoot what needs to change.
My spouse thinks we’re ok, and doesn’t want to do this, but I need you!
Every relationship is different, and you know best how to talk to your partner about help. One of the best things we can do is to organizing their space, if even for 15 minutes, and help them see the benefit. We’d love to do that, for them.
