Allow me: shopping list? Let me do you shopping

Kerry On Personal Shopper

Patsy is a very busy woman with no time to shop.

She said it came down to two choices: She could do the mad dash down the aisles of Whole Foods/Safeway and rush home in time to throw the groceries into their respective areas – quickly change for her Pilates class- jump back in the car and scour the area for a parking place and run into class – breathless…or

  She could hire me to do her weekly grocery shopping. We have it down to a science.

For instance, I know she likes pink roses, Best Foods Mayo and not faux mayonnaise.  She prefers Clover Organic Milk; Fage Greek O% fat yogurt; pink peaches – in season; frozen, organic, blueberries; Shredded Wheat; plain hummus; Tangerine juice – not Orange juice, California Cabernets, Quinoa in bulk, Trader Joe’s Belgium Chocolate Pudding (her favorite.)

Very Entertaining: When Patsy is planning to have people over – we talk.

She plans the menu – we discuss various stores, decor, and wine, Bev Mo versus Costco. I do all the shopping, deliver, and put groceries away, set the table and prep various food items.

Who does your grocery shopping? 

Is it a mad dash into the corner grocer or Trader Joe’s, and Whole Foods and Target?

I’ll be happy to take over your Grocery List… so you can Kerry on!

Personal Shopper Expertise: My grandfather opened a family-owned department store in California in 1895. For a century, our store served the local communities. My father taught me a great deal about customer service, merchandising and high standards.

Research, writing and … Kerry On


Are you – Up a Creek… Without a Pen?

Recently, I was hired to be a “Book Doctor” for a client who was writing her memoirs.  Her work of art was, shall we say,  a “little too long” and needed some artful “Bridges and Deletions.” Her memoirs were to be her 10th book. This was her first foray into non-fiction.

We worked for three weeks on the project and voila! the book was “Off the the Publisher.”

penssA new client hired me to write a short biography for the album cover of an impressive new jazz CD he was launching.

In addition, I formatted the copy, researched the various artists, and compiled song titles, times, talent.  It looked great.

photo_1720_20060622Senior Living ~  I was hired to research, tour/inspect four San Francisco Independent Living facilities and report back on my findings. My client is based in NYC and is “planning ahead” for his elderly parents.

I arranged for personal tours at San Franciso’sthe Sequoias, the San Francisco Towers, the Carlisle and Coventry Gardens.

I have myriad contacts, friends and senior acquaintances that shared their candid comments, first hand experiences and insights.   I compiled a very thorough packet of information to FEDEX to my client and   completed the task with a follow up review by phone. 

***Write Off – Neal needed assistance answering the dozens of cards he received after the death of his 95-year – old maiden aunt. He hired me to oversee the purchase of the engraved cards and organize the various lists and address each response/cards.

***The Stagers are Coming – Mrs. D.  Hired me to come in and pack up her kitchen, dining room, and four bedrooms before the stagers came to “prep” her beautiful house on Edgewood Drive – before it went up for sale.

As a Personal Assistant and Project Manager, I thrive on the diversity, variety, and the number of projects I am hired to execute.

May I help you?

Thank you, Red Jag YELP Review

My sister hired Kerry On to help clean out/ organize her kitchen/family room before a re-model and raved about her speed, professionalism and contacts.

Then our  neighbor hired her to organize and downsize her office in the City.

I needed help with several projects (selling stuff on Craigslist, calling clients, running a ton of errands – delivery /pick ups and customer contacts.

She was great. We have her once a week – she does research/reports…we love her.

Organizing -Beginner’s Luck? Not really…

Clutter: The GOOD NEWS –

The BAD NEWS

Sorry, 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.

Ms T. 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, Mission Accomplished.

An affable couple, June and Ward, agreed they no longer needed those 12 old jig- saw puzzles, 20 ‘0dd’ sets of playing cards, and stacks of coloring books and boxes of broken 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…
