Karen is a professional organizer and artist. She loves using both sides of her brain! Growing up in a family of nine, with two parents and seven kids in a small, four-bedroom house, staying organized was key to keeping everyone sane, and everything in its place. GingerSugar was started 10 years ago, after Karen helped downsize her family’s home of over 60 years and move her father into an assisted living facility. From personal experience, Karen knows how emotional and challenging it can be to help seniors and their family in transition.
Expert Tip: If it helps, think of keeping your home and life organized much like how you take care of your teeth. It isn’t a one-time thing. It’s a lifelong, daily habit that it is naturally part of your day. It’s also a twice a year check up, where you pay special attention and attend to anything that may become a bigger issue. And just like at the dentist, when needed, ask for expert help!
