Hey! I'm Crystal Nerpel. If you landed here because you are struggling with clutter (big or small / mental or physical) welcome to the club! You are not alone, my friend. I have walked in those same uncomfortable shoes.
My decluttering journey began at the end of 2016 when I finally acknowledged the HUGE gap between the way I was feeling and the way I wanted to feel:
For me, this was not about having a beautiful home...it was about self-care.
The clutter was taking a toll, so I took action.
I was searching for a way to feel grounded and in control...getting organized gave me what I was looking for. I didn't do it for my family. I didn't do it for my friends. I didn't worry about anyone else's opinions on my slight organizing obsession. Decluttering and simplifying gave me peace. It helped me start living my best life.
Through trial and error I discovered:
what my personal organizing flow is and how to use it to my advantage.
- organizing trends and fads don't work for everyone.
- how to integrate my organizing preferences with my family's organizing preferences (we do not organize the same).
- having support is very, very helpful....even if it's just being able to send a quick message to someone who understands the struggle.
- decluttering and organizing are a lifetime commitment.
Hopefully, through the I guidance I provide, you will be able to skip some of the mistakes I made.
I learned to take a mindful approach to decluttering and organizing.
I encourage women to embrace their personal decluttering and organizing styles in order to create a home that best supports them. We are all unique and our homes should reflect that.
I know, first hand, the feeling of empowerment and clarity that comes from getting control of the clutter and chaos. I look forward to celebrating with you as you release clutter and open up space for more abundance = abundance of freedom, clarity, strength, wisdom and love!
My passion to teach others to declutter, de-stress and simplify comes from a genuine place of understanding and compassion. I pass no judgements because I believe we are all doing the best we can with our current level of understanding.
It's my job to help you deepen your understanding of how your home can support YOU.
Even though I began this organizing journey focused on taking care of myself, this truly is a team effort. My family pitches in when needed and they let me practice my organizing skills on them. They are my biggest supporters.
For 26 years, I have been married to a smart, creative, sweet man who supports my mission to declutter, de-stress and simplify the world, one home at a time.
I'm the proud mama of Tori and Barret. Tori is in college and Barret is in middle school, and they both amaze me with their talents and hearts.
We LOVE to spend family time at our ranch with our dog, our cat and cows. Life is simple at the ranch, so it's my happy place.
