OPP (Other People's Property)

Here's a warning: Don't do it and don't allow it. What am I talking about? OPP or Other People's Property. If you are already having problems with storing your things and are disorganized and cluttered, why would you allow someone else to bring or store their "mess" in your space? I know many people who have so much of Other People's Property in their homes that they should charge a storage fee!! Stop it!! Don't allow a friend, neighbor or adult child (you know who you are) to use you home as their self-storage unit. If it's at your place, obviously they don't need it. Of course, if it's going to be a short-term issue, you have a DEFINITIVE DATE of removal and the space to do so, by all means-help. If not, get their stuff out and don't allow it back. Take inventory today and clear the clutter!!

About Me

My photo
Washington, DC, United States
I am Dr. Darnita L. Payden, Executive Director/Owner of Dr. DClutter™ Life Management, a division of PreciousOnes™ LLC. I have a Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology and over 20 years of experience working to help clients discover their strengths and talents. Having worked as a therapist, college professor, grief specialist and trainer, I have encountered in my journey many of the issues my clients may face. I have a sincere desire to help you find clarity, organization and independence in your life and environments. I know that life can be hectic, but I desire to help my clients bring as much order, peace and enjoyment back into their lives as is possible. What separates me from the norm? I focus on the client from a holistic perspective. I realize that most people desire a functional and an organized life, but may simply need support, understanding and information about why they have the habits or tendencies that have led to disorganization. I do not perform “quick fixes” or provide “one-size-fits-all” guidance, but I strive to provide strategies to my clients that will be life changing and useful for a lifetime. Dr. DClutter™ is a name well earned!!
