Your Paperwork

From Piles to Smiles can help you pare down your mountains of paperwork so you can easily find what you need when you need it and get things done on time. 

Gain Productivity and Peace of Mind with your paperwork!

Is your filing cabinet a “Bermuda Triangle” of lost papers? Do you rummage for important details in a sea of sticky notes? Are you confident that you could make more money if you could just finish projects on time? 

  • Efficiently manage your papers— I'll help you set up systems to organize, file, and retrieve your papers, mail, email, and files and get those bills paid on time. You'll no longer lose important details in frightening piles!
  • Learn organizing skills— As an expert organizer, I don't randomly toss out papers and file documents without your input. I work with you to identify what you need and what you can let go of. Next, I teach you organizational and time-management skills that will help you keep that paperwork under control forever.
