Professional Organizer

I love organizing – so you don’t have to

When I was about ten, I discovered that some people (like my younger sister) are messy by nature but like things to be neat. At the same time I realized that other people (like me) find enormous pleasure in making things tidier. We struck a bargain – she gave me $5 (!!) and I spent the day going through every drawer, box, and corner of her room until everything was spick and span. WIN-WIN.

I work with clients in the Philadelphia area (and around the world, if I happen to be in town, or if it’s possible to get things done remotely) to organize  and make sense of stuff and things in their homes, offices, basements, drawers and brains.

Do you need help with your…..

  • Systems?
  • Bills?
  • Houses?
  • Checkbook?
  • Office?
  • Computer?
  • Filing cabinets?
  • Closets?
  • Kids?

If so, then send me an email and let’s make a plan to get that shizzle TOGETHER!

house-sitting with a twist

If you want me to come house-sit while you’re away working in India, you might not be sorry! I might come and organize all your books and build you a shelf to put them on.

cabin cleanout

We went into the beautiful North Cascades to clean out the cabin and prepare it for a new tenant.

When we got there, we found it had been broken into, the door left open, and a pack rat had settled in. But we were not to be deterred! We cleaned, fixed, vacuumed, scrubbed and sang along. Took a pickup truck’s worth of goodies to the thrift shop (three mountain towns over) and built a burn pile (to save for wetter weather). Set the trap for Packie and caught him on our first try.

Nothing better than combining two great loves: organizing and the mountains.

while she was doing better things

Sometimes people have better things to do than deal with their wardrobe that broke and then exploded all over the floor. So while they are out there making the world a better place, I sometimes get to sneak in and put things back where they belong. WIN-WIN!
