My Philosophy

I bring my background as an editor to my work as an organizer. I see each room as a page, the clutter as a jumble of words waiting to be cut and pasted. My goal is a happy client in a room that is clear and concise, with lots of white space.

I had been organizing myself, my friends, and my family for decades when I started my organizing business in January 2004. My grandmother, one of the most organized people I've ever known, taught me "A place for everything, and everything in its place" when I was a little girl, and I dedicate my company to her.

I believe that homes get cluttered because you don't have a "home" for all your possessions. I can help you decide which of your things you want to keep, which rooms they should live in, and where in each room they should be kept. I believe in using simple and individualized systems, common sense, and the proper containers for the job.

Each client is different, with different needs and learning styles. I will talk with you to determine your unique needs and then work with you to clear out clutter and create a home that is orderly and serene. You decide which of your things you want to keep, sell, donate, or throw out.
