Meet Karen Buschini of In Its Place Organizing in Lexington

Today we’d like to introduce you to Karen Buschini.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Karen. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
I’ve had a love of organizing ever since I was a young child. I was constantly rearranging and organizing my bedroom and closets. After college I worked in the human resource field, which I loved, but once my children came along, I put that career on hold to be a stay at home mom. When my youngest was entering kindergarten, I started to think about what I could do that would still enable me to be here for my kids after school. I had become obsessed with watching the tv shows on home organizing; I saw the clutter and disorganization that was tackled and the difference it made in peoples lives, and it inspired me to start my own business. I knew I could provide a down-to-earth, positive experience for people who need help getting organized as well. I also knew that as a mom to four children I had real experience dealing with the many organizational challenges that come with kids and a busy household and that my people skills would be put to good use again as well.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
I feel blessed that my business has progressed the way it did. When my kids were younger and my business was new, I worked just enough hours to be able to juggle both organizing and being home with my kids. Most of my business was word of mouth. As time has moved on and my kids have grown so has my client base. I am able to schedule more clients and more hours. I feel so fortunate to be doing a job I absolutely love!

So let’s switch gears a bit and go into the In Its Place Organizing story. Tell us more about the business.
I am a professional organizer. I go into peoples homes and help them declutter and create order out of chaos. This means organizing kitchens, closets, paperwork, garages, etc.! I feel I was literally born to do this job and therefore have a knack of organizing in ways that don’t always occur to people. My goal is to create simple systems that are intuitive and work for my clients. I am high energy and extremely efficient and try to make each job fun too.

I’m most proud that I consider the majority of my clients to be good friends as well. Organizing can be very intimate and my clients place a high level of trust in me. I am a member of the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO) and fully embrace the organization’s emphasis on integrity, honesty and confidentiality.

Has luck played a meaningful role in your life and business?
I feel extremely lucky to have been able to combine my people skills and my love of organizing in a time when people are super busy and often feel overwhelmed by their stuff. I know that what I do can be life changing for many people.
