Don’t forget to remember!

By Hazel Thornton | January 29, 2024 |

As a professional organizer it was part of my job to help people find ways to remember stuff: Where are my keys? Where does this go? How do I remember tasks? Why do I forget appointments? Why can I never find the remote? Together, we created solutions and systems ala takeaways #2, 8, 9 in…

By Hazel Thornton | January 22, 2024 |

If you know me at all, you know I love flow charts, graphics, and cartoons! I also love when people send them to me. I don’t care if they’re graphs, pie charts, or Venn diagrams. Sometimes I’ve seen them before, but you never know — what if I haven’t? Sharing on social media It’s been…

I called 911 for myself the other night. It was one of the hardest decisions I’ve ever had to make. An introvert’s worst nightmare! Am I really having a heart attack? In which case it would be stupid to not call. Or is it “just” heartburn — which can sometimes feel like a heart attack…
