This week we have the great pleasure of welcoming Connecticut organizer, Matt Baier to the show. Matt gives us his best tips on our most requested organizing topic- managing clutter in your home office. Take a listen to these great tips that can help you make an immediate impact in your life. About Matt: Matt Baier Organizing LLC is the company people contact when the organizing books have failed and effective results are needed FAST. These results are less about using decorative baskets and more about increasing productivity. Over the past five years Matt and his team have been organizing businesses and busy homeowners, who are overwhelmed with clutter in New York City, Fairfield County and Westchester County.Matt's approach was developed during his tenure as Head of Design Services at the Jim Henson Company, home of the Muppets. His promotion from art director to department head arrived with half the staff, working in half the space, with 25% more work in demand. To succeed, he relied on a skill that came as naturally to him as breathing: ORGANIZING. As a result, Matt's department increased production tenfold. Matt spent the first half of his life riding horses in the hayfields of Maine and the second half riding the subways of New York City. He and his wife Susan now live in Stamford, CT with their cats, Sally and Daniel.
