‘Neat’, the award winning show I hosted on HGTV Canada, is now airing on ION Life in the States. It’s exciting to see renewed interest in the show and the unique approach it takes towards organizing homes, offices and (especially) lives. I’m so proud of the work we’ve done on the show, and thrilled that it is attracting and helping a whole new audience.
I’ve been getting a lot of fan mail with questions and comments about the show, so I thought I would share a few of them. If you’d like to see some of my responses, go to my Facebook Page (Recent Posts By Others). While you’re there, it would be great if you would ‘like it’ too!
Please keep them coming. I love hearing from you and I’ll make every effort to answer your questions personally…although sometimes it may take a while.
Love your show on ION, BUT… Only objection is you told one of your clients to store her art pens upright to see them better, but you should always store art pens and markers HORIZONTALLY, to keep them from drying out!!
I enjoy Neat for the kind, gentle way you help people get a new way to live. You already have made an impact on me and i just started watching 3 weeks ago. I finally have hope for the first time in years. Thank you so much for your diligence and great use of your time and talents.
I’ve just started watching your show on ION life. It’s been a great motivator and I’ve been getting rid of the clutter in my apartment! So thanks!
I really enjoy your show, Hellen. I love watching the mental transformation as well as the physical.
I want to thank you, Hellen, for being my inspiration in getting organized. After about a year and a half (or maybe more!), I’ve finally cleared out my office “area” (it’s not a room) that was stuffed with items from my parents and my childhood. As I was going through items, I kept thinking – does this bring me happiness? do I love it? does it fit in my life now? A few items I kept or passed on to other family members, but most was tossed. Things I didn’t keep but wanted to remember, I took a picture of. It’s so nice to be in that space now as I have room for my scrapbook table and supplies. And I have this great sense of accomplishment and relief of not having to keep looking at piles of stuff! Also, the guilt of keeping stuff “because it was mom’s and dad’s” is gone; I think they’d be pleased. Thanks again! (The garage is next!)
Does anyone have any tips for organizing loose recipes?
Where does one go if they want to become a certified professional organizer in Ontario? Is it possible to learn online or is it better to learn hands on?
