“Opened up new avenues of creativity and productivity”

Yesterday I opened my closet and I just stood there and looked at all my beautiful clothes, clothes that I like and fit me perfectly. What a joy it was to open that closet door! This is all thanks to Anna and the KonMari method.  I have continued to declutter and spark joy with each room in our house. This has opened up new avenues of creativity and productivity in my life. I’m able to spend more time enjoying my family instead of cleaning up after them. Thank you Anna!!!

“I had some success, but fall back into old habits”

I have tried many ways to organize my surroundings in which everything is neat and simplified. I have had some success, but fall back into old habits. With the help and patient care of Anna Fitzgerald and the organization strategy of KonMari, I was able to strategize, organize, and energize my closet. I will continue to use what I have learned from Ms. Fitzgerald to organize the rest of my home and different areas at work.

“Couldn’t imagine having my clothes in one room”

Having moved into our home 15 years ago with little closet and storage space, I couldn’t imagine having my clothes in one room vs. in closets and storage spaces throughout the house. Going up and down stairs with physical challenges to get outfits was concerning and time-wasting. The clothes and accessories that bring me joy are now in one room! And, the common-area closets of our home are organized beautifully! Thank you Anna for teaching me the life-changing KonMari way of being with such care, purpose, and respect. My previous organization skills were limited compared to the KonMari method. Look forward to KonMar-ing the remainder of our home, and every other aspect of my life, forever!

"Anna enlightened me with her keen insights, expert coaching skills and sincere kindness.

“I recently had the pleasure of working with Anna Fitzgerald of “Boot Your Baggage” and highly recommend her to you. She is an expert in her field and her introduction of the KonMari process into my life has been transformative and lasting.

When I first learned about Anna and her KonMari approach, I was intrigued and interested in learning more about this new concept. I have to say that I was very reluctant to have someone come into my home and see my messy, overcrowded closet, dresser drawers and other storage areas. I wondered what she would think of me after seeing the disarray, something I had hidden from the outside world for a very long time. You see, I had been hanging on to too much stuff that was too small, did not fit or just wasn’t me — clothes, shoes, jewelry, etc. Fortunately, I let her in and I am so thankful for the experience. 

Thanks to Anna’s knowledge and expertise in KonMari, it was an extremely enlightening session. Her ability to understand and support me through the transformative processes of clearing my closet and my mind of things I had been hanging on to was phenomenal. She was extremely kind and patient and the process really clicked with me. Fast forward to today and I have a new perspective on what I keep in my life.  I am more self-aware about what I purchase, what I hang on to and what I discard in my life. Since our 5-hour session, I can honestly say that I love my closet! 

Through my session and follow-up conversations with Anna, I have learned to ask myself if something “sparks joy” and, if not, I don’t buy it or keep it. You would be amazed how incredible it feels to get rid of the stuff that is weighing you down. There is certainly a parallel between the KonMari process and its ability to change your thinking. 

I could go on and on about Anna Fitzgerald and her immense skills, ability to connect with others and the KonMari process. Suffice it to say, my session and subsequent conversations with her has made a positive and lasting impression on me. My newly organized closet now makes me joyful! I am saving time and energy every time I enter my closet. No longer do I have to search for something that I like since everything “sparks joy” and makes me smile.

Thank you Anna Fitzgerald for enlightening me with your keen insights, expert coaching skills and sincere kindness. You have helped me more than words can say.

“What a great experience I had working with Anna.

I consider myself a bit of a minimalist so I wasn’t sure how much I would actually be able to clear out of my closet, ( 2 large bags)!!

Anna challenged me to think about the stuff I have and have been hanging on to in a different way. I had a lot of clothing items that I thought I should keep because there was nothing wrong with them , but didn’t really love or wear very often.

Going through this process with Anna was an eye opener, letting go of things that really don’t speak to me anymore has been freeing. I absolutely love looking in my closet now,  it is so easy to find something to wear because I love everything in there. I can not wait to apply what I have learned to the rest of my Stuff.

Working with Anna was a truly great experience, she has a way of making you feel at ease while learning how to let go of what no longer serves you.
