Putting Everything in Place
When Alexis Lowman was a little girl, instead of pretending her Barbie dolls were princesses, CEOs, or political pundits, she organized their belongings. She lined up their shoes. She folded their teeny skirts and dresses. She had a love for putting things in order and a knack for it as well.
Grownup Alexis began helping people to sort out their closets and home offices as a side business in 2010. However, it wasn't long before the demand for her talents grew so great that she decided to give organizational services her full attention. In the spring of 2011, Alexis launched Putting Everything in Place.
During each initial consultation, Alexis talks to clients to learn their goals for the specified space, whether a home office, bedroom closet, or basement of a doghouse. Alexis compares organization to putting together a jigsaw puzzle, first arranging alike pieces into general piles. Alexis helps the client to identify the categories for the piles and then separate out any pieces that don't fit the larger puzzle. Not even the biggest jumble can faze Alexis, and her amicable nature puts clients at ease.
Alexis sees her role as not just finding a place for everything, but also showing people a new way of living. She recalls one client who had trouble paying her bills on time. As the client explained how she kept her stamps in one room, her envelopes on a desk in a different room, and her unpaid bills in yet another, Alexis saw the light of realization spark in the client's eyes—all necessities for the chore should be stored in the same area. Together, they established a "mail center," and although the three-hour session wasn't enough to organize the space completely, the client emailed Alexis to celebrate the end of her bill-paying woes.
