Alison Kero grew up with 2 different organizational styles being modeled to her. One parent was precision neat while the other was a pack rat. Through her teenage and college years Alison lived more like her pack rat parent but when she became an adult and started living on her own, she searched for systems that allowed her to easily get and stay organized.
When Alison became a decluttering expert in 2004, she continued her search for the best productivity and organizational practices. However, it wasn't until 2015 while recovering from an illness that she discovered what the process was trying to show her. Clutter wasn't just physical, it was emotional and spiritual as well. However, by starting with the physical clutter and using the 5 Main Organizational Steps, she was able to start transforming her life in a truly meaningful way and she also found that as the physical clutter left her life, the emotional and spiritual clutter were easier to identify and remove as well. Suddenly she felt she was living an easier, happier, more authentic life. In fact, Alison found that her health, happiness and productivity levels were all rising when she stuck to the Main 5 and that they were particularly helpful during times of stress or when she could feel herself wanting to self-sabotage the positive changes she was making. She has continued working the process ever since and is now happily sharing her methods with her clients.
