Hi, welcome to Finally Organized, by Joey! I’m Joey Shockley and I am a home organizer in North Carolina. I’m a combat veteran, a Buffy the Vampire Slayer fan, and a Potterhead. I am also an Alzheimer’s Association volunteer, an amateur nature photographer, and an animal lover. I have 2 adorable little fur balls, my cats, Mischief and Seemore. I love helping people and I’m thrilled that I can do that with this blog.
When most people hear that I’m a home organizer, they assume that I’m one of those people who love to organize and keep everything just perfectly so. Well, they’re wrong about that. I struggled with organization in my home for years.
There were piles of paper heaped onto a table and more in a box on the floor. The second bedroom of my apartment had no available space left save a path to the cats’ litter box. Maybe worst of all was the impact it had on my ability to socialize in my home because there was so much clutter around the apartment that I didn’t want to let anyone through the door.
For me, decluttering and organizing are skills that I’ve learned and must continue to practice consistently. Now, however, I can say that my home is under control and I have people over to my home regularly and with little notice.
I know firsthand just how hard it is to struggle with clutter and a lack of organization. I know that it can be overwhelming, paralyzing even. I know. So, when I see other people fighting against their clutter in what seems like a losing battle, I want to help. That is my purpose and the reason for this website.
