This is our first episode of the new year! We’re kicking off with two sisters sharing some amazing tips about living organized.
In our fast-paced lives, it’s not uncommon for our surroundings to mirror the chaos within us. There’s a profound truth in the notion that our outer world reflects our inner world, and for many of us, a cluttered environment can disrupt our sense of balance and focus. Picture a messy office, an untidy closet, or an unmade bed—these seemingly mundane aspects can significantly impact our well-being.
Today, co-founders of House Organize, Cris and Marisa, advocate for the idea that a well-organized, clutter-free living space can serve as a breath of fresh air, offering respite from the daily chaos.
Founded in 2020, House Organized is more than just a company; it’s a mission. Cris and Marisa are two sisters dedicated to bringing the stress-free organization into people’s lives, not only transforming physical spaces but also positively impacting the overall well-being of their clients.
