Permanent Change of Storing is owned and founded by Christa Curtis – That’s me!
I have a passion for all things organization, and I believe in the peace that being organized can bring to anyone. I have been organizing for friends and family for many years, and now, with Permanent Change of Storing, I am sharing my delight in helping other military spouses and families lead a more organized and stress-free life.
I had never dreamed of being a military spouse
After graduating San Diego State University in 2008 with a Bachelor’s degree in psychology, I was soon married and starting a family with my husband Neil, an officer in the U.S. Navy. I had never dreamed of being a military spouse, but I was excited for everything the future could hold for us. I am grateful for the triumphs and challenges I have been able to learn from living all around the world.
From San Diego to Viginia Beach...
San Diego - Virginia Beach - Yokosuka, Japan - Manama, Bahrain - Puget Sound - Newport, Rhode Island - Stuttgart, Germany – Busan, South Korea – each place has been a vastly different and rewarding experience, but they all have one thing in common: me and my family. Wherever the Navy sends the Curtis family, it has been my task to make the new house a home. I arrange the furniture just right, hang all the pictures up on the walls, maybe roll out a new area rug or two, and most importantly, I give all of the household goods a new home. With each transition, I have become confident in my organizational skills, both personally and professionally.
An Organized Mom
As a new mother, I learned a fantastic organization method from Stacey Crew in her book, The Organized Mom. This method has made each of my family’s intercontinental changes easier and easier as I master it, and tailor it to the new house, as well as my family’s lifestyle, needs, and personalities. As my family has grown, I have also been able to learn and adapt to methods from other organization-inspired books, articles, blogs, and TV shows. Yes, even the flawless Marie Kondo has given me a few golden nuggets of wisdom. Additionally, I am a ClutterBug™ Certified Organizational Specialist. All this continued input ensures I can customize the organization journey for each of my clients.
My services are available to all - my life-experience makes me the best answer to the woes of military families
What we do: The answer on all sides of a Permanent Change of Station
A permanent change to the way you store your treasured items brings relief before and after your move, as well as at any time while living in yet another temporary home. I will help you organize your items just in time to box them up, to help you decide on a meaningful place for everything when you move-in, and to discern the best way to stow your items. A way that is functional for your own everyday use, practical for packing up, and easy to re-place in a new space. I will also help you eliminate the excess and learn how to thoughtfully invite new items into your valuable square-footage.
I will evaluate your needs and coach you in the best styles and habits to fit your personality and the lifestyle your family loves. Beyond the military move, I want to inspire and assist you with reorganization through all types of transitions – be it a marriage, new baby, grown children moving out, or even a new job – every change is exciting and probably challenging, yet easier when an organized mindset is applied.
My nomadic lifestyle, over twelve years of motherhood, grouped with a combined seventeen years of jobs and volunteer work where my talent for organization flourished, have allowed me to focus on my true passion: a love for being organized and helping others reach their organization goals. And so, it is my goal as your Organizing Professional to discover and tailor the best method(s) to suit your needs and lifestyle, so that you can quickly absorb it and let organization lead you to a more peaceful way of life
