Author of the workbook, Organize and De-Stress the Christmas Season, Volk says the key is to plan and organize. “If you know what your priorities are and you get those scheduled first and finished first, what’s left over that you don’t get done doesn’t really matter. . . . If someone invites you into stress, you don’t have to go. You have the right to say no to stress.”

Clutter buster. The last thing Helen Volk does is lecture people on their less than admirable habits. But you can be sure that Volk, a professional organizer, will calmly and firmly lead you down the path towards a clutter-free life, if you’re ready to begin the journey. Her business is getting people to organize themselves by reducing their possessions to the things that really count. Volk can begin with something as simple as helping a client organize a filing system or the top of a desk. But this is not just a clutter cop. Her concepts of organization and living simply encompass every facet of life.
