Tips on how to deal with clutter…

1. Commit to do something about it – this is an important first step.

2. Set a goal for your room – plan the space to serve you and how you want to live.

3. Start small – begin with a manageable project such as a junk drawer or bookshelf.

4. Edit items – keep only things which serve your goal for the space.

5. Think green – items you no longer need can be donated or sold.

6. Schedule time to organize – even 20 minutes a day will go a long way.

If you feel overwhelmed, frustrated, or simply don’t have enough time to tackle clutter on your own, a Professional Organizer can help.


I have known Mr. Poole since January of 2009 when he and his wife became patients at our clinic. Since this time we have built a clinical relationship due to his interest in the field of Ergonomics. I have been practicing in various capacities in health care for the past 20 years. Past interests in cardiac and respiratory health care as well as working in both the hospital and home care settings lead me to be a more preventative and proactive health care model. I have been practicing as a liscenced chiropractor in the province of Nova Scotia for 7 years in Clayton Park and work with various health care practitioners in the HRM.

I am writing this letter in regards to Mr. Poole's capacity to perform quality and insightful ergonomic assessments and recommendations. His ability to assist workers with postural problems and integrate meaningful solutions and cost effective strategies is very detailed and practical. Chris has been very helpful to my patients with regards to performing timeley, on-site assessments. I have witnessed and been impressed with his ability to find quick and cost effective means to create productive and user-friendly employees workstations.

To this end, I feel quite comfortable recommending Mr. Poole as a competent, ergonomic expert. His professional and courteous mature makes it easy for people to like and trust him. Chris has worked as an IT professional and has spent many hours sitting at a desk and as a result has endured the rigors of postural strain and the symptoms associated with it. This is what has fueled his passion for this type of problem solving and what makes him very good at what he does.

Home & Business Inventory

Home and Business Inventory Services:

Organizing a home, or managing records for business, includes identifying equipment, electronics, valuables, artwork, etc., that are no longer needed.  These unwanted items can be simply discarded, but it is recommended to donate items in good condition to a school, daycare, or charity.  First, determine the value of the item as you may be able to receive a tax deduction for the non-cash donation.  Also consider other family members who may need the item, or would place a sentimental value on the object.  Consideration can also be made to selling online, such as through eBay, or kijiji, or through traditional yard sales and newspaper ads.

Homeowners can turn their attention to those remaining items.  Ask yourself if you kept it for a useful or decorative purpose.  Identify the room it should be in, how often it is used, and if decorative, does it compliment the space you intend to place it?

Business owners with inventory for resale need to keep annual records for tax purposes.  Small business owners may need assistance recording each item in stock, with description, value, and other details which will also identify slow moving inventory.

In addition to organizing, space planning, and creating custom storage solutions, ArtWORKable Interiors will help you create a record of electronics, artwork, etc., which is very useful for determining content insurance coverage, help manage warranty and maintenance paperwork, as well as, assist the Halifax Police, or RCMP, to attempt to recover any stolen items.  Insurance agents recognize that a number of homeowners do not update their records for new purchases, and as a result, many homeowners are under-insured.  Police agencies cannot guarantee recovery of stolen items, but having serial and model numbers, and even pictures, increase your chances.  Manufacturers may not cover your warranty if you cannot prove your date of purchase.  Keeping records of valuables would also make it easier to prepare your will.  Business owners need inventory of stock and equipment for tax purposes.

Starting an inventory record from scratch can be a daunting experience, and the ArtWORKable team can provide tips and strategies to organize your possessions, determine value, and record details that may be needed suddenly.  Packages are available to help you start the process, and for record maintenance on an ongoing basis.
