My millennial – busy, SF, 20-something – will Kerry On

My millennial – like two ships passing in the night – we rarely see one another – and his house is in order. Perfect pairing.

 This month, my most interesting client is a busy, 20-something, very wealthy, man who can’t do his laundry.

Nor can he pick his clothes up off the floor; organize his refrigerator, pantry or closets. He cannot be present to receive the gardener, the maid, or receive special deliveries. His cupboards and pantry are as bare as old Mother Hubbard’s. I have been happy to stock the refrigerator and cupboard shelves with healthy, food, as needed.

Client X readily admits that he is “not that tidy” and asked me to organize his closets. All of them.

Mr. Chill Stich

He has a couple dozen pair of jeans -all skinny- the man does not eat.  You’ll find no Levi’s here – only designer labels like Armani, Fendi…

What to do with all those old family photos? Kerry On

“You ought to be in Pictures….”

Do you have boxes, baskets, and drawers filled with family photos?

Will you sort them by year, by family member, event, school, job, or state?  Perhaps you have plenty of time to put all of them in scrapbooks?

Or, like many of us, you might be daunted by the task and put them all back in boxes (baskets, drawers, cupboards) and plan to tackle the herculean task another day?

Letting go of the clutter…one drawer, shelf, cupboard at a time

chaos-391652_chaos_

Clutter: GOOD NEWS – BAD NEWS

There is no such thing as a Magic Wand to remove clutter…

The Good News:

I can help you toss, shred, organize, alphabetize, de-clutter and organize receipts, files and mild chaos.

Allow me – to assist you in de-cluttering, organizing, purging, tossing, and shredding…

Janice hired me to work with her elderly parents. They had rooms and rooms filled with items that needed to be repaired, donated, thrown away, put in the proper place…

photo_8828_20090101

An affable couple, Tillie and Michael, agreed they no longer needed those 12 old jig saw puzzles, 20 ‘0dd’ sets of playing cards, coloring books and crayons for the grandkids – who were now in college.

It’s in the Bag We filled up bags of junk to toss or recycle …and bags of toys in good shape to be donated. Next, we sorted though dozens of old movies, cassettes, and duplicate CD’s. We agreed: there are only so many Frank Sinatra ” I Did it My Way” CD’s one can listen to.

Too Much Stuff Syndrome? They had multiple bookshelves crammed with books and old magazines – in no time the books were sorted and organized -dog-eared magazines were recycled … giving the living room a great face lift.

(Boxes of very old Time Magazines and National Geograhics were put on Craigslist for free – and disappeared.)

Tillie has booked me to visit – twice a week – for the next two months. It’s a date!

We are working magic: clutter is disappearing!  Call me- we’ll talk. Kerry Onwand

I’m a Pick Up Artist and Personal Assistant

Exteriour of quirky house with red painted decorations

I am a pick up artist:

I Pick Up the Pieces: the dry cleaning, the packages at UPS, the plans at City Hall, and the groceries from Whole Foods, Safeway, Bryan’s and Trader Joe’s.

I run errands and I run interference for you with suppliers, contractors, workers and helpers.
I’m a professional Personal Assistant with a proven track record and background in logistics and operations.

Recently:

  • I Moved a couple from their home of 45 years to a Senior Residence in Santa Rosa.
  • I researched the best water heater company in Marin and arranged for the very smooth  installation
  • Arranged for 62 windows cleaned to perfection
    * Created a very thorough ‘Earthquake Preparedness Kit’ for a family of four
    and facilitated the design and construction of 3 very efficient closets….
  • I helped a film-maker set up a home office;  picked up a Visa at the Russian Consulate, bought, wrapped, insured and mailed multiple Christmas gifts, stocked a very extensive pantry from stem to stern.
  • I researched and found a great paint that replicates a movie screen and made a client very happy by having her wall painted/treated – voila!  A new meaning for Home Movies….
  • Delivered: A client  in New York hired me to deliver healthy, balanced  meals from Whole Foods to his frail, elderly parents in Sausalito.
  • De-Cluttered: A very busy client needed closets cleaned up and organized 
  • Client A. doesn’t have time – she hands me her Errands List – Considers it “done” and it is, every week.
  • Another client needed help downsizing/de-cluttering/organizing before her move from a loft South of Market to a condo in Tiburon.  We shopped, shipped, wrapped, taped, labeled, recycled, donated and got her feeling a lot more confident and relaxed about her next chapter.

The list of what I can do to make you life easier and more fun is long and varied. Let’s talk.

I  will Kerry on – so you can carry on and have a lot more fun and time!
