You: I know they’re around here somewhere. (riffling through silverware drawer)
Concerned Onlooker: Why would your keys be in there?
Y: Because I remember having them when I was over here. (opens dishwasher) Here they are! Ready to go? I just have to grab my jacket. I think it’s in the bathroom …
CO: Um, you need to call Kyle Freeman.
Y: Who’s that? (pulling jacket out from behind the TV)
CO: She’s the Boston-based decorator behind Cloud 9 Organize & Redesign — and a member of the National Association of Professional Organizers. She’ll help you declutter by tossing and donating the stuff you don’t need while making space for the things you can’t part with.
Y: I can’t afford all that.
CO: She charges only $55 an hour, and she’ll even rearrange the furniture and accessories you already have. You don’t have to buy anything new if you don’t want to.
Y: Amazing. Now I just need to find my phone.
