Hi, I am Emi Yamashita. I came to the Netherlands in 2008 and I live here with my Dutch husband and my son. I like to think of and try new ways to simplify daily housekeeping with less effort and more fun. And I like to help other people do the same!
I got interested in organizing when I moved in with my husband, All the closets and storage places in his house were already filled with his things, so where could I put the luggage and stuff I had brought from Japan? I needed to make some space first. And actually that was the start of (re-)organizing the entire house.
Do you think that I was good at tidying up or cleaning? No, not at all! But gradually I learned. I got a lot of ideas and tips by following some blogs on the internet about decluttering and organizing. And I just used my brains to become creative and think of ways to make the housekeeping easier and more fun.
As a result, my life has changed. Not only did I get used to do the housekeeping efficiently but also the relationship with my husband has greatly changed. Organizing the house has brought harmony, to our house and to our relationship. The house has become a home, a place of harmony where my husband, my son and I can be ourselves, feel comfortable and at ease.
My own experience that organizing and simplifying housekeeping can help to change your life in a positive direction has led me to the idea that I could help other people as well. With our busy lives we all need a comfortable home environment in which we can relax and spend time with our family. Yet every house also needs cleaning and tidying up. So let's make that part fun en simple, so that we can spend more time with our loved ones?
So I decided to become a Professional Organizer. In 2018 I followed the training Professional Organizer at the NBPO, the Dutch Professional Association of Professional Organizers
As a Professional Organizer I offer my brain and hands to those who don’t want to waste years of time tidying up all alone. I am here to help you, so that you can enjoy the rest of your life in ease, peace, pleasure and harmony.
