We had the privilege of interviewing Chris Duffy. Listen to her show, Ninja Of Deceit Comes Clean here. Chris is a regular mom just like us. Through her moves, having 5 children (the last two are twins) and busy schedule she describes that she was paralyzed by clutter. Listen to the show to find out what her husband thought, how he supported her hiring Simply Squared Away, how she worked through the overwhelming amount of stuff, her advice to other moms and the things that she still deals with like the Duffy Kappa Sig fraternity house upstairs!
Here are some photos we mentioned on the show. Her “Sanford and Son” coat closet before (read Sanford and Son’s organizing tips here):

The Duffy pantry. Notice the various snack bins along the bottom row. All the bins were purchased from Wal-Mart! Chris organized the medicine cabinet with ordinary plastic containers. Another good product with medicines and spices in a cabinet is the Lazy Susan Turntable. The only way Chris got her areas organized was to take one thing at a time. What is one thing you could start with? Your medicines? Adding a snack bin? Calling a professional organizer or friend to help? Looking at your calendar and scheduling 30 minutes of organizing?
