Angie’s List Super Service Award standard

We did it again! I’m thrilled to announce that McKee Closet Organizing and McKee Organizing Services both won the Angie’s List Super Service Award, reflecting a year of great reviews from our customers. Minimum requirements for eligibility include an “A” as an overall rating. Luckily we have never gotten any review other than an “A” for either business! Only about 5% of the companies that we compete with in Pittsburgh are able to earn our Super Service Award. It’s a mark of consistently great customer service. We love our Angie’s List members and they continue to give us great reviews. Here is what some over them have said: • “Sandy was very patient and nice during the initial visit. This ...

Old School Organizing: Lessons I’m Still Learning From My Mom standard

My mom’s shoebox for receipts, a large check register that would not fit in your wallet, and an over-stocked pantry.  These are three things that in my professional life I might have advised against.  But my mom recently passed away and is continuing to teach me important lessons in simplicity. Her shoebox of receipts was a perfect receptacle for the year’s spending.  Little handwritten notes chronicled what was important.  It took twenty minutes to sort and document medical expenses, taxable items and things that were to be kept.  It was easy to see where she went and how she navigated life using this little paper trail.  There were not two or three places to look for these.  They were not ...

Important Documents: What to Keep and for How Long standard

You might be surprised how many people have important financial documents scattered all over the house – on the kitchen table, underneath old newspapers, in the hall closet, in the basement. If this describes your financial “filing system”, you may have a tough time keeping tabs on your financial life. Organization will help you, your advisors… and even your heirs. If you’ve got a meeting scheduled with an accountant, financial consultant, mortgage lender or insurance agent, spare yourself a last-minute scavenger hunt. Take an hour or two to put things in good order. If nothing else, do it for your heirs. When you pass, they will be contending with emotions and won’t want to search through your house for this ...

It’s Easy Being Green – AND Organized! standard

As a professional organizer, I use the word simplify in my daily vocabulary. We’ve all heard the mantra “reduce, reuse, recycle”. But what not everyone recognizes is that ‘simplify’ is just a more palatable synonym for ‘reduce’. I’m, quite frankly, in the business of reducing.  It’s no mistake that ‘reduce’ comes first in the mantra. Our culture often obsesses about the end game, but recycling is actually the last step. The goal is to acquire less, creatively reuse what makes sense and recycle what you can. The good news is there are many resources locally and nationally to help!   Reduce Shop with the idea of ENOUGH in mind.  When you know what ‘enough’ is, your inventory of possessions stays ...

Spring Cleaning standard

We look forward to spring for many reasons; warmer weather, longer days, blooming trees and flowers, spring break, free Rita’s Italian Ice (for those of you Pittsburghers out there)… the list goes on. You might notice that the phenomenon of spring cleaning did not make that list. The human instinct to migrate outdoors to attend to our neglected homesteads as the weather gets warmer gets a bad rap, but as you might imagine, I am a fan of this time of year. I am here to tell you how you can make spring cleaning more fun and less stressful! Maintenance Once the snow melts and the ice thaws you might notice some areas of the house that need attention. It ...
