Decluttering My Life and Accepting Spacial Harmony

I have always been a pack rat. It is really difficult for me to get rid of items because I am nostalgic by nature and hang on to their emotional significance. However, having my son has truly put things into perspective and now I am beginning to see that they are just objects. There are more important things in this life.

Enter Dara Finkel:

Dara and I have been friends since the 1st grade when we were students at P.S.87 and in Trudy Orgas' class together. We fell out of touch after high school, but then recconnected on the almighty facebook.

It turns out Dara has started her own business called Spacial Harmony. She is a personal organizer, but her skills go beyond that. When she came over to my place, she was more like a therapist. She guided me through the process of throwing things away and donating items that I didn't need.

Dara has a sensitive touch when it comes to organization and decluttering. She was understanding when it came to objects that I was unwilling to part with, but helped me to determine that there were items that I could get rid of and feel okay about.

Here's an example of her work on a scary closet of mine:

We are still working on the rest of the apartment. She is amazing at what she does. For more information on Dara's company "Spacial Harmony" visit her site here. Or check Spacial Harmony out of facebook here.


  1. Sarah,

    Thank you for this post! It was my pleasure working with you and can't wait to keep tackling the rest of your space.

    -Dara Finkel, Spacial Harmony

  2. Wow! That closet looks amazing, I can't wait to see the rest of the apartment. I have the same crazy clutter issues and can't seem to throw anything away. I love the idea of a clutter therapist, sometimes you need that extra support to get rid of old things to make room for the new. Good work!

  3. Hee hee! Yes it does, all thanks to Spacial Harmony!

    Dara, you are welcome! And thank YOU!

  4. I need her help but I'm scared!

  5. Don't be scared, Jack. I never judge, and want everyone to live in a space that they love. When you're ready to create a more functional and comfortable space, shoot me an email!

  6. Dara, you have been sent from heaven! How wonderful to have a supportive, friendly helper sort through your life, possessions. Keep up the good work. Love it.
