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



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…


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.


  • 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!

Need to Curb Your Enthusiasm? Shredding Excellence

iNEW_like-you 2Kerry On Award for Great Service

Not a Shred of Evidence...Level Six Shreddingimages

Recently, a client hired me to deliver reams of out dated documents, ancient tax returns, and misc. papers  to

Level 6 Shredding in San Francisco.

This  owned and operated – impeccable company weighed and shredded all the docs that required my ‘witness’ and were to shred all other papers, thereafter.   Matt and Robert make house calls -and  will show up at your curb ( at your home or office) and shred documents, too.

A great service –  both very professional and cordial: Level Six Shredding.

Good Will? Out-of -the -Closet is a dynamic, well organized, company – located at California and Polk Streets – light years ahead of Goodwill- who accepts donations for resale.

Excellent drive in and drop off donations service. Several clients have hired me take multiple bags for donations to Out- of -the- Closet.

Good Will Hunting – Looking for someone to run to Target, Costco and Bev Mo?  Last week I made the rounds for one family and delivered groceries, paper goods, and beverages. Happy family.


I am professional and efficient with a proven track record and sterling references.

Free 30-minute consultation within 10 miles radius.

As serious as a Heart Attack? You betcha!


Ya Gotta Have Heart!

Rosie O’Donnell has a new HBO Special About Women and Heart Attacks.

Yes, she is very funny and there was nothing funny about her recent heart attack or about the ‘Top Four Signs You Are Having a Heart Attack, Lady!’

cupcakesLady-like Symptoms?

Unlike your father, brother, uncle, husband, son – women “Present” differently. Our heart attacks aren’t the clutch your chest style. We’re different.

If you feel clammy and hot, experience extreme pain and discomfort (around your jaw, neck, mouth…) and become nauseous and are very, very, tired – your body is screaming: Call 911! Now!

unnamed-8Chew on an Aspirin…

Is there aspirin in your medicine cabinet? Bravo! Is there a small container of aspirin in your purse? in your desk at work? in your car? at your paramour’s casa?

unnamed-7 Target sells Generic Aspirin – in a handy 3-small-bottles in a box for $6++-                 Check out Walgreens, Longs, CVS, Lucky, Publix, Safeway…

Lady! Save a Life – Yours.

Remember – Buy Aspirin ( No, not Alleve or Advil, etc)

If you Feel Hot and simply Exhausted, and have Pain and are Nauseous- Call 911.

Girls: We are Unique. Be aware of the SIGNS



ASPIRIN: Why It Is Used
For people who are having a heart attack. You can take aspirin to help you during a heart attack. After you call 911 or other emergency services, the operator may tell you to chew 1 adult-strength or 2 to 4 low-dose aspirin. Or you might be given aspirin in the ambulance or emergency room. Aspirin slows blood clotting. So a blood clot that is causing the heart attack stays smaller.   WEB MD
