Welcome to Organized for Life….and beyond

Are you ready to rise above your clutter, and find the freedom of getting organized for life?

Less clutter. More life.

Please note:

I am no longer taking new clients for hands-on, in-person organizing. I'd be happy to help you explore your options for getting started, though, even if it means referring you to a trusted colleague. If you'd rather go directly to the National Association of Productivity and Organizing Professionals (NAPO), or Professional Organizers of New Mexico (PONM) to find an in-person organizer you have my blessing.

Are your photos and memorabilia organized and shareable? Is it time to tell your story?

Less clutter. More stories.


In addition to helping you tell your own story, let's explore your family history too!

I can do the research for you, or help you do it. Click here to get started!

Create peace of mind, for you and your family, by making decisions now so they don't have to later.

Less clutter. More peace.


Clearing away possessions that you don't need or want can be part of your legacy, as well as identifying your treasures and telling their stories. It's never too early....or too late...to start downsizing!

    • Thanks, Brenda! I didn’t even know people could comment on this page. Lets meet for coffee sometime when you’re in town.

  1. Dear Hazel,

    Thank you for writing about the 80/20 Paretto Rule. I never could understand that phrase. I used to work retail and I had a

    manager who used to talk about that. But I just never could get it to connect in my brain.

    Your examples especially with the clothes we wear more and switching the hangars was helpful..

    I think you are great. Too bad you don’t make “house calls”.

    Thanks for listening,


    • Thank you, Linda! I’m glad you could relate to my examples. And I did make house calls for 15 years!

  2. Hazel,

    Thanks for the copy of your new book and the acknowledgement in it. I read it already and was impressed with your knowledge of techniques and websites. You have passed me by with your technical knowledge. I still am trying to figure out how to post a photo to familysearch.org. I loved the “bathing beauty” photo of your grandmother on the book cover.


    • I think of you every time someone admits they made a lot of mistakes in the beginning and don’t trust their trees. I have never felt the need to start over, due to the methodical (and painstakingly slow) way we had to work back then. The skills I learned from you make it easy for me to resist grafting whole undocumented branches to my tree with the click of a mouse!
