Home of Laura and Robert Leist - Address will be provided after you register


Do you write "get organized" on your New Year's resolution list every year and then decide the task is just too daunting? The good news're not alone! Getting organized is the third most common resolution on everyone's list, yet people generally spend more time adding to the disorganization rather than making any significant steps towards eliminating it. Did you know that about 80% of the clutter in the home is caused by disorganization, not lack of space? You will leave feeling empowered to take action so that next year this is not on your New Year's resolution list. 

Class Description
Do you have too much chaos at home and in your life?

Do you have trouble finding things when you need them?

Do you purchase duplicate items because you can't find what you are looking for?

Do you often tell yourself "I'll get organized....someday?"

Are you overwhelmed with no idea where or how to get started?

If you can answer 'YES' to any of these questions, then this class will teach you the secrets of how you can "Take control of your time, space and stuff.™ " 

Based on Laura Leist's best-selling book Eliminate Chaos: The 10-Step Process to Organize Your Home & Life, this class will inspire you to take action and implement Laura's ideas and suggestions. 

What You Will Learn
1.  What the three biggest organizing mistakes are and how to avoid them.

2.  Why "It's Not About the Stuff(R)." 
3.  What Laura's 10 step are to organize any room in your home.
4.  Simple changes that make a powerful impact on daily activities.

There will be a group discussion based on Laura's book and the 10-Steps.  Don't worry if you've not read the book.

The Tour!
We will tour several rooms in the home and discuss organizing principals for each area; including:

  • Kitchen/Pantry
  • Master Closet
  • Linen Closet
  • Laundry Room
  • Home Office

Class is held at Laura's home and the offices of Eliminate Chaos.  It is about 5 minutes north of the Costco in Woodinville.
The address will be provided after you register.

“This program will inspire you to do what we should all be doing on a daily basis.  It will bring “focus” back to your busy schedule and life.  My biggest tool to take home was sorting the items in my kitchen and clothes I use least and store away from everyday items.” - Trish

“Great example of how to keep a home organized.  Organizing takes time.  If you put that time in, it’s worth it.  I expected to get it done quickly and have it stick but now I know to put some time into it and time to maintain it.” - Cynthia

“A good jumping off point to start getting organized – gave good ideas for how to store items.” - Carrie
