It can be necessary for kids to understand organizing and how it differs from cleaning up a messy room. It is also very important that parents and children realize the many types of organizing and how keeping certain things neat is not meant to squash creativity. As this is a parent and child class, much information will be covered about the importance of being well organized for medical reasons, school preparations and various types of emergencies. This program is suitable for any age group.

New Announcements for 2018!

GARRISON SPRING #7

So they say… “One must spring ahead!”

As this year started off with a long-term medical emergency of a family member, Garrison Concierge was forced to take an extended break by lowering client visits substantially. It was during this break that new ideas and considerations were made for the future of the business.

After long and careful thought, it was finally decided that since Garrison Concierge was striving for a new level in a different direction, remaining a member of NAPO no longer seems that it will serve any purpose. As 2018 marks nineteen years of being in the organizing industry, fourteen of those years have been as a member of NAPO. In the beginning, NAPO was a great way to meet other professional organizers, study in special classes, try out and evaluate new products and receive discounts for certain services and supplies. However, as so many years have past, those benefits have dwindled down to the mere use of a logo.

After further consideration, the idea of supporting a logo that is not widely recognized no longer seems practical. Therefore, the final decision was to depart from the group and the logos shall soon disappear from this website.

Other ideas have also been conceived over the past few weeks in order to keep service offerings fresh and to maintain a smooth flow of business procedures. Please stay tuned for more announcements about services and workshops. Meanwhile, please visit the Policies & Procedures page for slight updates.

Thank you to all who have been so very understanding and helpful during the past three months of such a drastic situation. Your compassion, patience and advice is duly noted!!
