  • Banda's (before and afters)

    The most fun part of organizing is the "banda" pictures.

  • How Virtual Services work

    If you are uncomfortable with me coming into your home, we can do this virtually. First, you'll fill out a quick questionnaire, then you send me pictures or videos of your trouble spots, I will analyze them and come up with a plan for you to follow. I will be your "accountability coach". We will stay in touch via phone, text, Facetime, Zoom, or whatever works best for you. You can send me pics and/or videos of your progress along the way and I will provide helpful solutions when you need them. Virtual services can be combined with a one-time in-person meeting to assess your organizing personality and the job at hand and/or a final follow-up meeting. I'm flexible and I'm here for you!

    Free Initial Consultation and Cost Estimate

    Before we get started, I will provide a free initial consultation and give you a time and cost estimate. The time it takes will depend on your level of dedication to the process.

  • About Me

    My parents were tidy people. Everything had a place. I grew up surrounded by neatness and organization, except for my parents’ various rehab projects, and even they were organized chaos.

     

    When I left home, I married a garbage man’s son. Their house was the proverbial “garbage house”. Dad brought everything home from his route. Furniture, toys, housewares, booze, food, clothing, I mean everything! The house was always a disaster. I tried to help my mother-in-law clean, but dad was always bringing home more junk. I struggled endlessly to clean that house. I swore when I had my own place, it would be impeccable! I have achieved that goal throughout my years.

     

    I have studied numerous theories on organizing from Marie Kondo to the Fly Lady and beyond. I took a professional organizing course and received a certificate of completion in 2019.

     

    Now I want to help you unburden your life and free your spirit!

    Thoughts, musings, and ruminations.

    It’s been said that there’s a difference between organizing and de-cluttering, and there is. De-cluttering requires decision making and organizing requires cute storage solutions, I believe you can’t do one without the other. You shouldn’t organize junk (unless it’s contained in a “junk drawer”)....
    Quick definition: “PURGE” can mean donate, recycle or toss. I use it interchangeably. Donate items in very good condition (not broken or missing parts), recycle everything your county or city allows, toss everything else. Does your kitchen look like this? Turn on your favorite music. Crank it...
