Charlotte television station features Certified Professional Organizer® who shares advice on boosting productivity at home
The Charlotte Today show invites Candi Ruppert, CPO® on to talk about organization and working from home
Charlotte, North Carolina---February 25, 2020-- Candi Rupert, Certified Professional Organizer® and NAPO® member, made her (now regular) monthly appearance on WCNC’s Charlotte Today show and gave helpful advice on how to set yourself up for success when working from home. Colleen Odeggard and Eugene Robinson, co-hosts on Charlotte Today, started the segment noting how easy it is for the home office to get cluttered and for us to put the “mess out of mind” (Odeggard). Ruppert went on to share three easy steps to get any home office in order.
Ruppert explained why disorganization happens in the first place, “What happens in a home office is you don’t have a supply closet like you do when you work in a regular office. So . . . everything is dumped in that home office and it gets so cluttered that sometimes you just can’t get your work done.”
Ruppert’s first step to organizing your home office is utilizing small boxes to store items like paper clips, pens, push pins. . .etc. A great tip she mentioned was using boxes you already have around the house like old iPhone boxes. Next, she exhibited how she uses magazine holders to organize office supplies like notepads, printer paper, mail, and sheet protectors. Lastly, she finished the segment by advising viewers to categorize important documents in separate binders.
Throughout Ruppert’s Charlotte Today segment, she encourages recycling and sustainable organizing. Those interested in watching the full interview can visit the Sage Organizing Advice Blog post about Ruppert’s Charlotte Today appearance at
For this month's appearance on WCNC's the Charlotte Today Show, I shared my three secrets to organizing your home office.

Watch the video above to get your home office organized in just a few easy steps provided by your favorite Certified Professional Organizer®.
Sage Organizing Co. is excited to announce two new services to help YOU and your organizing business.
Many people may assume at first that if you're good at organizing, the business "stuff" will handle itself. WRONG! I have been organizing since I can remember, but I didn't turn this passion into a business until four years ago. I had done plenty of organizing for friends, neighbors, and family, how big of a difference would it make if I made it a business? I'm here to tell you, running a professional organizing business is NOT the same as just organizing your friend's pantry.
I've spent a lot of time working on the nuts and bolts of my professional organizing business, Sage Organizing Co. I can't tell you how many times I've thought, "I should have asked *this* when I was speaking with that client!" or "No! I forgot to get *that* client's email!" I'm not ashamed to say I have made my fair share of errors. Starting a business has been a great learning experience; however, things could have gone smoother with a little bit of help from somebody who had been in my shoes.
Being a new professional organizer can be overwhelming, but I'm about to make your life as a business owner a little easier. I have taken care of the tedious work and created clear and focused forms, templates, and plans to help you as a new professional organizer Book That Client! Some of the items available include a consultation form, appointment confirmation template, and action plan all geared towards professional organizing.
The documents I've created are affordable and can be customized for your business; they are professional and easily accessible to everybody.
Now, some of you may be thinking, "Candi, I LOVE the downloads, (I even bought the whole bundle) but I've got some more complex issues I'm struggling to work out." Never fear, Candi's here! I have rolled out an AMAZING service in the last few weeks that I am so excited about called "Rent my Brain."
I don't want to say "I've seen it all," but . . . I have.
The good, the bad, the ugly, at this point in my life and work, nothing shocks me! You can trust that you'll be speaking to somebody who is judgement-free and truly "gets it" during a "Rent my Brain" session. I know what it's like to feel like a hot mess, that's why I am looking forward to help others thanks to my experience in management, organization, and being a small business owner.
During a "Rent my Brain" session, I'll help you talk through the problem you're facing and create an action plan to overcome it. Issues people have come to talk to me about stretch from business and management to home and personal life. Plus, I have made it as convenient as possible for you by offering "Rent my Brain" sessions over the phone and also video call so you don't have to be local to take advantage of this resource.
With these two new additions at Sage Organizing Co., I'll work with you to get your life and business on the road to success!
Are you ready? LET'S DO THIS!

Candi Ruppert, CPOⓇ, appears on the Charlotte Today show for the fifth time to teach viewers items they can donate to local charities.
Charlotte, North Carolina---January 22, 2020-- WCNC Charlotte Today hosted Candi Ruppert, Certified Professional Organizer® and owner of Sage Organizing Co. on the show for the fifth time. Charlotte Today’s co-hosts, Colleen Odeggard and Eugene Robinson, welcomed Ruppert back to the set to share some of her professional advice on decluttering and donating. During Ruppert’s segment, she listed six items that people often throw away but could be donated instead.
Part of Sage Organizing Co.’s mission is to be a force for good in the Charlotte community, as noted on their website (https://www.sageorganizingco.com/).
Ruppert started the interview with an important message, “So many people have items just sitting in their home that aren’t doing anything, they’re shoved in a closet, they’re shoved in a spare guest room and those are items that could go out and serve other people in the community.”
Ruppert also provided names of local charities in Charlotte that would benefit the most from particular items. Some of the charities Ruppert recommended were Beds for Kids, Crisis Assistance Ministry, Jewish Family Services, and Habitat for Humanity. Lastly, Ruppert discussed a great resource which is the Charlotte Donation Service which will connect you with groups who will take items you don’t know what to do with. To contact Charlotte Donation Service, simply dial 211.

Candi Ruppert, CPOⓇ, honored as Small Business Person of the Year 2019 finalist by Charlotte Media Group
Charlotte, North Carolina---January 17, 2020-- Candi Ruppert, Certified Professional Organizer®, and owner of Sage Organizing Co. was honored at an event hosted by Charlotte Media group celebrating finalists of Small Business Person of the Year 2019. An audience of local leaders, including respected attorneys, doctors, and restaurant owners, gathered at the Hampton Inn and Suites at Phillips Place SouthPark to mingle, network, and recognize each finalist.
Charlotte Media Group describes themselves as the “Publisher of the South Charlotte Weekly, Union County Weekly, Matthews-Mint Hill Weekly, and the Pineville Pilot.” They reach over 120,000 readers every week, providing them with “hyper-local” content.
Directors of Charlotte Media Group noted that they read through and extensively researched all nominations before they narrowed down the list and decided on the 2019 finalists.
“Charlotte Media Group did a fantastic job hosting the event and I am so honored to have been nominated and recognized amongst an amazing group of hard-working, influential individuals,” says Candi Ruppert, CPO®.
Though Ruppert may not have been the ultimate winner of the Small Business Person of the Year 2019 title, she will continue to work hard and help others through her business Sage Organizing Co. which offers estate clearing and home organization services. Ruppert’s strong work ethic, commitment to furthering her education – not many organizers are CPO-certified – and compassion and understanding set her apart from other organizers.
Ruppert travels around Mecklenburg County, Union County and as far as Gastonia, Lake Norman and Rock Hill, S.C., to help clients. Those interested in having Sage Organizing Co. help downsize, declutter, organize, or clear their home (or one they’ve inherited) can set up a consultation with Ruppert at SageOrganizingCo.com.
