Steppe up to being more organized on the go

Anne Steppe of Simplicity organizers will demonstrate how to declutter your vehicle from 1 to 3 p.m. Feb. 12 at Keith Hawthorne Ford Lincoln, 7601 South Blvd.

I met Anne last year at a Femfessionals networking event and her expertise is evident. And I learned a fun fact about her: Charlotte's famous businesswoman and philanthropist Joan Zimmerman is her aunt (Anne's mother is Joan's sister).

In a press release Anne sent out, she says that Americans average more than an hour a day in their cars, with many using their vehicles as a rolling, multipurpose command center: part kitchen table, part home office and part family entertainment space.

She'll help make sense of all the loose papers, empty bottles, snack wrappers, DVDs, sports equipment and more that tend to pile up in the cars of the average active family.

Simplicity is a professional organizing company that helps clients evaluate their needs, then develops customized organizational solutions and systems.
