"I find that sometimes the biggest obstacle people have before our initial meeting is the fear that I’ll think your home is a mess and that you need to clean up.
Don’t worry, the reason you’ve called me is to get help organizing it and get the mess under control. If there was no mess, you wouldn’t need me, so don’t worry about it!"
Kristine Todd-- Proud Owner
I’m guessing you’re here because you’ve looked around your house and decided it was time for a change – TIME TO GET ORGANIZED.
This is a daunting task for many people because they do not know where to begin and cannot formulate an overall plan. That’s where a professional organizer like myself comes in – to work with you, without judgment, helping you see the potential in your home through the art of organizing. We create an action plan together to organize your lifestyle to work for you.
Sometimes the task of relocation of yourself or a family member is especially difficult as it is hard to sort through memories and decide what to take and what you can let go of, and find a new home for your released possessions. This is where I come in.
