Tame Space is a service that helps you organize your environment, making it useful and beautiful.
Despite the misleading headlines you can find all over the internet (Get Organized in 10 Minutes a Day! Unclutter Your Home in 5 Easy Steps! 3 Ways to Make Your Morning Productive!), getting and staying organized is not an easy process. It requires your attention more often than you'd think. But with a little hard work at the start, and your wish list for the space you have, you can save yourself money, time and aggravation of disorganized living.
I don't believe it's a personality defect to avoid getting organized or to constantly strive for it. People who are organized have only one secret: they want the rewards of an organized space and they never want to be without it.
I can provide the woman power, the philosophy, the ideas and motivation to organize your spaces. And you can feel good about unloading your unwanted things, because somewhere in this great city, someone would be glad to have it.
The average American moves 11.8 times in a lifetime.
My name is Rascher Marie Alcasid and I've moved 32 times. (Granted, I'm a New Yorker, we move a lot.) I've lived in Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, New Jersey and New York. So I've got moving in and setting up shop down to a science. I imagine I've acquired skills that only the ancient Bedouin have when it comes to moving from place to place. And the truth is, I love moving.
Before I started this business, I read every available book on organizing (that was available at the NYPL, a formidable collection) but I didn't think any of them had just what I wanted to share with people. Most disturbing to me is that many of the books, television shows and online websites have skimpy, vague suggestions for the unloading of excess stuff. Their idea is to just toss bags and bags of things to the curb or a large dumpster.
My dream is to write the book that would inspire anyone in any kind of situation to create the living and work space that fully supports who they are and the life they want to live. We all have a unique vision of what kind of space would be best for us but for some, it's difficult to translate into reality. You can be anywhere on the style spectrum from utilitarian to high brow elegance but it's impossible to express it without thoughtful whittling of too much stuff.

Incidentally, if you hire me, you are inviting a gal with a lifelong love of interior design, a sometime love of tea cozies, and a longing for moleskin notebooks in every shade. I'm an armchair expert in material culture and science. In another life I would have been a doctor or a carpenter. Or both. I'm also a damn good cook.
