Hi! I'm Kat.  I started out life as a cluttered packrat, with collections a plenty and a frazzled brain, but between moving 13 times in 9 years,  spending more time organizing my cubicle than actually working, and watching far too many reruns of  TLC's "Clean Sweep"  and Style's "Clean House", I learned how to let go of the unimportant, and maximize space in small homes and offices. That lead to googling "home organizing", realizing my passion could be my career and starting The Simplified Life in 2007.  As an aspiring minimalist,  I am passionate about passing on the skills I've learned and helping you realize a calm and clutter-free home and life once and for all.
