Dear Stacy:  I want to thank you for everything you did to help me transform my closet and for giving me the tools to eliminate the clutter and make my life more simple. You made a seemingly difficult and overwhelming task fun and easy and dramatically reduced my stress level because you were able to see things from my perspective and not push too hard. From the minute you arrived, you got involved and saw things through until we sorted everything...the "keep" pile, the "donate" pile and even overseeing the trash disposal. Your services were flawless! I am forever grateful for your graceful presence and your ability to organize logically and structure systematically and I have been recommending you to all my friends.  You are professional, efficient, a pleasure to work with and delivered beyond my expectations. I came away with a sense of reassurance about my own organizational abilities and a burst of motivation to keep getting things in order. I will definitely be calling you again to keep the ball rolling.”

Stacy was a lifesaver.  Days after moving into a new house, Stacy was there helping me sort through mountains of boxes to help clear space for our home office/den.  It was an overwhelming task that I thought would take weeks to accomplish.  With Stacy's enthusiasm and positive attitude we accomplished "the impossible" in one day.  My husband came home from work, and his jaw dropped. Next came our filing system...long neglected from procrastination.  Now color coded, with neat labels, in perfect order.  I am so impressed, I want to keep it organized...yes I actually look forward to filing. My husband and I are ever so grateful to Stacy for all of her hard work.  We keep finding new areas that need some help...our daughter's closet is next.  Feels wonderful to come home at the end of the day knowing that everything has a place.  I would highly recommend Stacy to anyone struggling with clutter or chaos, she can help you see through the mess with professionalism, perspective, enthusiasm and optimism.”

 

Thanks for everything!

I loved having Stacy work on my daughter's room.  Stacy not only brought organization and order to the room, but she helped me create a manageable system that my daughter could use every day and maintain!  Most importantly, Stacy helped me get rid of a lot of items I was holding on to that I no longer needed.  She helped me decide what to keep as mementos from my daughter's baby years and what I should part with.  She even gave me some tough love when I needed it most.  I love my daughter's clean, organized, beautiful closet. And Stacy was right, she didn't miss anything that we gave away.  She has loved discovering her old favorites and storing her new prized possessions in neat, orderly cabinets now that the clutter is gone.  I cannot wait until she helps me attack my son's room, our office and the garage!”

I didn’t know it could be so easy to get ready in the morning!  Stacy’s calm and practical approach to organizing my bathroom helped me to get through the actual process and it only took a few hours. It was emotional getting rid of so many “things” but I realize now I was just hanging onto stuff for the sake of having stuff!  Now I am able to find what I need immediately and I love it.   Thank you Stacy for your patience and vision, I love my bathroom and am looking forward to our planned closet organizing sessions."

Thank you so much for helping me organize my closet.  Everything is now so easy to find and it looks amazing!  The other day I was running late for an event… Usually it would take me forever to find the things I wanted to wear, but since my closet is so organized, it took me only a few minutes to get ready.  I didn't have to go through piles of clothes on the shelf or rifle through the entire closet to find what I wanted.  I appreciate your encouragement to let go of items I should have discarded years ago.  Now I'm looking forward to organizing the rest of the house!”

This was one of the best CLEANING/ORGANIZING experiences I have had, EVER! I admit, I tend to hold onto, well, pretty much, everything! With the 5 kids everything adds up VERY quickly & being somewhat busy, it’s been about 8 years since anything has been purged from the playroom!  In comes Stacy….She is my sanity saving grace & without her, I can pretty much bet that I would have lost my mind had I had to walk there one more time. Within 5 hours, we got rid of 4 bags of trash & 7 bags of donated goods –the best money ever spent! I would have NEVER, EVER been able to do it on my own. I HIGHLY recommend her – not only for playrooms, but for closets, kitchens, offices or ANY organizing needs! Thank you Stacy.

Peace of mind is one of life's conditions that you don't appreciate until it's gone. I knew I felt frustrated and inept: every room in my house was cluttered and I spent hours frantically searching for important papers I “just saw a minute ago.”  Sure, I had great intentions. I bought bins and nifty organization tools. I ordered how-to books. In the end, I spent way too much time and money on gadgets and quick fixes. I needed serious help. Fortunately, I met Stacy. She takes the fear out of tackling clutter by calmly coaching you through each step. She's a roll-up-the-sleeves-and-get-started kind of gal. Together, we sorted, tossed, reorganized and labeled. My life began to take on a sense of order and accomplishment. I felt liberated.    So, here's my advice: Call Stacy, roll up your sleeves and get started. Because the value of peace of mind? Priceless.”

I wish I could show you “before” and “after” photos of my home office and kitchen.  It is the only way you would be able to see ALL of the amazing changes Stacy made at my house.  It just feels better to sit at my desk and work.  I know where things are for the first time in many years.  I actually saw the backs of my desk drawers.  I didn’t think they ever ended – I would just stuff more junk inside of them and pray they closed.  It all looked good from the outside, but inside everything was a mess.  I love knowing everything has its own place and finally, my home office world makes sense to me.  Now I can focus on more exciting things – like paying bills and filing the masses of papers that come home in my kids’ backpacks. My newly organized home office was only the beginning.  We also went through everything in my kitchen.  Now, if I really wanted to cook, I’d know exactly where my supplies are located.  I didn’t even know I had a rice cooker.  I’m excited to try out some new recipes – beef and broccoli with steamed brown rice, anyone?  When my ultra neat husband saw the newly styled kitchen cabinets and drawers he got goosebumps.  Literally.

Stacy, thanks so much for all of the help.  I NEVER would have been able to organize, sort and categorize everything like you did. You rock!”

Bringing someone into your home is a touchy subject. Stacy understands that and brings her knowledge, solutions, and experience to give you the best service at the most affordable price. She does all the work herself without bringing in any subs so that your privacy and safety is protected and assured. Since she educates you as she goes, your spaces get cleaned up and organized while you learn how to maintain them. She teaches you that If you stay on top of your mess, you will only need to go through it 2-4 times a year – Stacy, you were such a help to our family! Thank you for leading us on a path to simplicity and organization!

After being apprehensive about getting organizing assistance, I finally called Stacy and was immediately put at ease.  We chatted about my needs and set up an in-home consultation.  When I met Stacy I found her to be trustworthy, practical, and solution oriented. Being a mom herself, she really knows what kids need and can do without and how to organize their stuff so it is easy for them to maintain (and find!). She organized my boys rooms and playroom and now we know where everything is-it just makes sense! I would highly recommend Stacy if you are overwhelmed with clutter in your home. She is awesome and will be coming back to do our master closets in a month! I can’t wait! Thanks Stacy!

Stacy ~ You are a true gift! Your calm Zen like energy helped with such a stressful move! You came and helped me get rid of the clutter and organize the garage, closets, master & kids rooms and went shopping with me to help me choose the best (and most affordable) organizing pieces. I just can't wait for you to return and do our home office. I would recommend her to all friends in need ~ Stacy is such blessing!!!!

I consider myself a fairly organized person, but I work full time running my own business from home and am a single mom of 4 year old twins. After my ex moved out, the closets in my house seemed like they were in complete disarray for my taste. An organized mess. I realized that I didn't want to tackle any of my closets or bathroom cabinets after long days at work, wanting to spend time with the kids, and of course all the other chores that needed to get done. As the months went on though, I felt like I needed to have the house organized to feel clutter free as well as feel a fresh start after the split. There was not only disorganization from shoving things into cabinets and closets after years, but also the psychological aspect of not wanting to deal with the relics of the past that needed to be dealt with - sorted, thrown out, filed or stored. Upon reading Stacy's website, chatting with her on the phone and then meeting her, I knew she was the one to do the job. Stacy was such a joy to work with. She listened to my needs and explained to me how she works, seamlessly getting everything done including going out and buying the supplies I needed. It was such a freeing experience and I feel a weight has been lifted and a catharsis. Now when I look around my house, I feel at ease and delighted. 


Stacy is great at what she does and is a lovely person. (I'm looking forward to her coming back in the next few weeks to do my kitchen!”
