Professional Home Organizer Uncovers MisFiled Insurance Policy & Client Lives On Proceeds For A Year

Following her husband's death, New Orleans widow hires Virginia Barkley, Professional Home Organizer, who uncovers a 1967 insurance policy while cleaning out a warehouse space and endears herself to a woman in the midst of a monumental life change
Sept. 20, 2010 - PRLog -- Virginia Barkley aka The Dancing Ant, was hired to consolidate and de-clutter the home office space of  a client who had lost her husband a few months earlier.  Virginia was so effective in her consolidation and reconfiguring of the office space that her client, Mrs. Dahlberg, requested that she de-clutter and re-organize the attic and library, and lastly to assess the contents of a warehouse space for which she no longer wanted to manage.  

The warehouse space included old furniture, paintings, and miscellaneous items along with nine boxes of old files from the family's galvanizing company that had since been sold.  In order to ensure that there were no files that needed to be kept for tax purposes, Virginia plowed through the boxes and in the eighth box came across a file within a file that looked misplaced.  

Having been able to get rid of most of the papers in the previous seven boxes, she realized that this tiny file potentially had huge significance for her client and presented the file to the client at the end of the day.

"I was actually feeling a bit badly about how much time it had taken me to review the files, most of which I recommended shredding, having no idea the impact that that one day's work would have on the life of my client"  said Virginia Barkley.

“Hiring her was a god-send, literally.  I lived on that insurance money for the rest of the year”, said C. Dahlberg.

On her website,, Virginia shares tips and tricks for getting one's home organized, including a FREE 5 day mini-course on " 5 Easy Actions To Get Your Brain In Gear & Start De-Cluttering Your Home TODAY
