What does this Parkland Professional Organizer keep in her bag?

Posted by Kendra Fletcher on

Every time I go to a new client to help them organize in Parkland, Coral Springs or Boca Raton, I bring my black and white bag. I've gotta admit that sometimes I feel like Mary Poppins because my bag seems to hold a lot of what I need. Clients are always surprised when I take out just the right supply from my bag. 

One time, I was helping a client move a bunch of boxes and his apartment door would automatically shut and lock behind him. He said, "I really need a door stopper." I replied, "Oh, I have one of those."

Yesterday I was with a client who had a bunch of random keys in her desk drawer. I said, "Let's figure out which keys go where and label them. I have some key rings with labels in my bag."

My point is, it's always very satisfying as an organizer to pull out *just* the right supply from my bag of tricks.

Below is a complete list of what I currently keep in my bag for organizing. Even if you are not a professional organizer, you could benefit from having some of these items available for organizing your own belongings.
