Clean Up Your Clutter

Clutter at home or work driving you crazy?  Want some spring cleaning strategies from two clutter pros?

Join us at the Shepherd Park Library on Monday, April 11, at 6:30 p.m. for a free seminar on getting and staying organized. Organizing gurus Judy Tiger and Tamara Belden will offer tips on taming the clutter in our lives.

In 2006, Judy Tiger launched Just That Simple, a home and office organizing and move-preparation business. Since then, Just That Simple has worked with clients throughout the D.C. metro area, in settings ranging from small offices and studio apartments to large multi-bedroom homes. Helping clients with “all stuff in all rooms,” Tiger welcomes small jobs (one pile of papers or a closet, finished in one visit) and big jobs (organizing everything in a large house over many months). She has helped clients ages 8 to 85 make decisions regarding what to keep and what not. She helps find places to put everything away and offers routines for staying organized. Just That Simple is a member of the National Association of Professional Organizers.  All services are personalized, soothing, nonjudgmental and completely confidential.

Tammy Belden, a life-long organizer and experienced public speaker, has developed her own annual plan for staying organized. She calls it Sherman's March, as in General Sherman's march to the sea in the Civil War. She begins every January and by mid-March, she's done until the next year.  Tammy will share her plan of attack and give tips for personalizing it to your own personality and situation. 

Both Tiger and Belden have lived in Washington for over 35 years and are now neighbors in Takoma Park. Prior to operating Just That Simple, Tiger ran a D.C.-based nonprofit for 17 years. Belden is retired from the Library of Congress after 30 years and is currently a consultant at the Library of Congress as well as a licensed Washington, D.C., tour guide.
