Our possessions not only help define us, but in some cases are vital to our existence. However, if we become too attached to our stuff and accumulate too much, we usually pay a heavy price, which includes, but is not limited to, the loss of space, time, clarity, and opportunity. The process of deciding what to keep and what to discard and/or donate can be laborious and difficult, but it is essential to maintaining a healthy and balanced life. I work with my clients to help them determine what they love and need, and what they can pass on to somebody else. Part of the decluttering process is finding a new home for your discards, preferably a charitable organization or a person in need.
Space allows us to express who we are. We can be whimsical with it or pragmatic. We can fill it with the things we love: art, plants, or even a record collection. But what we should never do with space is waste it! Whether you live in a small studio apartment or a large house, if you find that you struggle with making the best use of your space, I can help you to examine new angles and possibilities.
Are you drowning in clothes, toys, condiments, paper, or emails, just to mention a few things that can get out of hand? Most likely all you need is a simple system or two to get organized and stay that way. There’s rarely a need for expensive solutions; simple fixes should take care of the problem. I have plenty of those up my sleeve and I’m looking forward to sharing them with you.

Tim is truly a space organizing genius. He helped me transform my cluttered, unorganized home into a lean, mean live/work space that feels more like a Zen sanctuary than a New York City apartment. He helped me identify the essentials, chuck the expendables, and gave me some simple, useful, organizational techniques that completely revolutionized my workspace and home. By paring down, de-cluttering and organizing, I feel like my mental space is less cluttered as well; my productivity has increased, and I have more time and space. Now, instead of feeling stressed and overwhelmed when I walk through my front door, I'm calm and relaxed and happy to be home. And the fact that the stuff I was tossing would be going to someone who could use it made the process much less painful.
My garage was nearly impassable. I had to walk sideways to get thru, it was that cluttered with 'stuff'. Tim sized it up and got to work and within hours it was transformed to a usable space. boxed, labeled, tossed and stored. He did an amazing job, all the while considerate of my anxiety about this decluttering process. If you are caught in that cycle of clean out and re clutter, I highly recommend Tim Haft's services. Not only did I have a cleaner, clearer space, he inspired me to keep it that way.
