Organised Office - Organised Mind!

April Newsletter -2013

When I was with a client recently she confided to me that her office is so disorganised that she feels like her mind is about to explode! Since I quite like my client (we'll call her Sam), I suggested to her that we avoid such an explosion and rather set about installing systems and solutions for her that would create a more productive space.

Money doesn't grow on trees...

Dear budding neat freaks,

When I decided to make changes to my offices in May (i.e. close the home shop and create an admin area and take over my awesome home laundry to make way for a stock room), I knew I certainly didn't have the money-tree recipe. I had to find a way to do it without spending lots of money.

ECR House & Garden Show

Posted by Isabelle on Tuesday, August 17, 2010, In : News 
WOW - what a busy July it was for Neat Freak.

The H&G show now has a section called the HOMEGROWN Fair, which showcases local design and homegrown brands. Neat Freak was lucky enough to exhibit in this section and whilst it was a hectic schedule to keep, it was invaluable experience.

A big thanks to Terry Angelos of Wart & Fish Trading, for running a well organised and lovely show.

See you all there next year.

Posted by Isabelle on Thursday, April 29, 2010, In : Online Shop & Products 
When my children were younger, my awesome sister-in-law taught me such an easy way to organise their puzzles, that when I realised many of my clients were struggling with the same problem, I hit upon a plan - make the system available to all!

So, Neat Freak is proud to launch the NEAT PUZZLES system that will save you loads of space and money from incomplete puzzles (not to mention eliminate the tantrums when your child can't finish their masterpiece).

I have to break my promise of the online store going live in January as I'm being a bit of a control freak!
I undoubtedly will encounter some technical problems when the store goes live, but for now, I am trying to get it up and running without these glitches.

PLEASE bare with me - hopefully it will be worth the wait and functional in the next few days!

Simply download the catalogue and order form and read it at your leisure. Once you have decided which items you like, simply fill in the form and send it through to Neat Freak. We will take care of the rest.

Although currently only available to Durbanites, there are plans afoot...
