Raccoons the bane of your existence? Solutions here

An easy way to get rid of those darn pests!

Kerry On Your Personal Assistant

One morning at four o’clock,they were startled by the sounds of growls, shrieks and bodies being slammed against the wall of the crawl space below their bedroom. The ghastly screams and mad growling frightened the City Dwellers.

They moved to the guest bedroom and called the landlord who was “on holiday” skiing somewhere…no calls returned.

The couple googled every clue they could about the noise, potential animals and surmised it was dastardly Raccoons.

Raccoons the bane of your existence? Solutions here

Robert and Karin rented a cottage in Mill Valley while their  re-model was completed.

Flashlight down the heating grate and placed their lap-top near by. Next, they put the shrill singing on – continual replay- and went to dinner and a movie.

They could hear the high pitched singing as they entered the living room.

Evidently, three hours of the rather the very shrill, high-pitched, singing was enough

for the very rocky raucous family to move out – never to return…

Success!

Allow me to be Your Personal Shopper – Kerry On


unnamed-3 copy 2

Leave the shopping to me…

You are busy – very busy. And while you would love to pick up items at Rainbow Grocery, Target, Bryan’s and Cal Mart – and drop off those bags to Goodwill or Salvation Army – “free time” to do so  is not always available.

Sarah M. flys to ORD once a week and her meetings last 2-4 days. She follows a very healthy and very strict diet. She knows exactly what she wants and prepares a weekly list for me. Once or twice a month, I do Sarah’s grocery shopping; I clean out, organize,  -then re-stock her refrigerator with new purchases. She returns home to find  a wide variety of high quality, fresh produce and beverages.

May I help you? kerry.on.sf@gmail.com

Tidying Up – one room at a time

seasons-846051__180

On a Whim – On a Lark – They bought The Book.

Fifteen of my clients bought the little, best-selling Magic Tiding Up Book. You know the one.

This time next year, the book will be relegated to donations to Goodwill and libraries.

Its a great little book! Chockfull of suggestions for more joy and less clutter.

My favorite takeaway?

(No, don’t kiss your socks, don’t stockpile Q-tips or Toilet Paper.)

The best Kondo advice: Discard First – Organize Later.

This concept not Japanese or Irish or even Paleo – it’s logical and quicker and smarter.

Your Closet: 50 Shades of White?

 closet-912694__180

50 Shades of White: Easy Organizing Tips for your Closet

Organizing your Closet – one hanger at a time. Starting with White Shirts, blouses, tops…

 #1. White Dress Shirts/Blouses Note: There are nearly 20 shades of white – here are the Top 12 Shades of White

  1. Old lace
  2. Cream
  3. Beige
  4. Linen
  5. Antique white
  6. Champagne
  7. Eggshell
  8. Dutch white
  9. Bone
  10. Vanilla
  11. Flax
  12. Navajo white

Step One: Organize similar shirts/blouses by Color: Gather all your long sleeve solid color White/Ecru/Tan Shirts and sort by shade.

Next, sort all Shades of White Short Sleeved shirts/blouses.

Step Two: Organize all your dress shirts by color (defer to ROYGBIV: red, orange, yellow, green blue, indigo and violet or by pastels… your wardrobe will speak to you) Then, again, sort by sleeve length. 

Step Three: : Organizing your Casual shirts, Jerseys, T-shirts, Tank Tops, Polo shirts, Plaid Flannels, Hawaiian Shirts, Camisoles. Tackle one category at at time.

Some T-shirts are good on a hanger – others should be folded and organized by color and placed in a drawer. Camisoles should folded and placed in your lingerie drawer(s).

My Top Five “Best Customer Service” Kerry On

Service is Key!

Kerry On Your Personal Assistant

photo_380_20051108 If you are like me, Customer Service is of the utmost importance.

This month, I worked with Five Super/Stellar Suppliers who have very high standards and went beyond the call of duty. I am a fan.

My March 2016 Top Five Favorite Suppliers:

  • 1-800-Got- Junk –One of my favorite phone calls to make for a client. Whether the client is moving from their home of 50 years or 5 years- there is generally a lot of rubbish, litter, debris and junk to deal with. The 1-8oo-Got Junk Phone Team is so well-trained, patient and results oriented –  it is a pleasure to speak with them. There are no “Dumb or Inane Questions.” What there is are solutions and a team to come pick up said debris and whisk it way. Gold Stars for Customer Service.
  • Aby’s Upholstery -Two different San Jose clients needed furniture re-upholstered. I looked at the usual suspects and was unimpressed.  Then, I  found Aby’s Upholstery. An owner/operator, Santa Clara University…
