Carol has a gift, and somehow makes the process not only bearable but enjoyable!
My daughter’s room was a mess. It was discouraging for both of us because there was so much stuff and nowhere to put it. The chaos affected her ability to relax and enjoy her personal space, and even prevented her from getting a good sleep at night. She didn’t enjoy spending time there and we were both frustrated and didn’t know how to handle it, so we decided to call Carol.
I will admit, I dreaded going through every last paper and piece of pre-teen “stuff” since on previous tries I was always met with a lot of resistance. Carol has a gift, and somehow makes the process not only bearable but enjoyable! She connected with my daughter and the two of them threw out more junk in one afternoon than I had been able to get her to do in two years. With Carol’s guidance, my daughter was empowered to make decisions on what stayed and what went. Since they were her choices, she was able to let go of a lot of the excess.
It has been two months since we organized the bedroom, and this 12- year-old’s room has remained clean since then! She loves to hang out in it now, and her sleeping habits have improved greatly. I am much more relaxed and didn’t realize what a burden the mess was creating on my own shoulders. Carol truly changed both our lives by organizing the bedroom. We can’t thank her enough!!!!

Carol literally changes lives, making living easier.
Carol changed my life. I was constantly running late to appointments and leaving behind a messy house, creating new messes in the car and putting other drivers at risk because I’d be applying make-up as I drove! Since Carol came to my home, my house has lost literally 500 lbs of junk we thought we needed. My home office is organized to the point that I work more effeciently and my son and husband are happier knowing exactly where their “toys” live. My closest is now beautiful — who knew. I’m on time to meetings now and I no longer apply make-up at the wheel. I no longer have to hide the clutter in drawers when company stops by and my car is prestine. Carol literally changes lives, making living easier.

Carol is a Tireless Worker…
Our company needed help organizing several executive offices and our corporate files. Carol provided professional organization that helped each executive develop a system that suited how they used their office and accessed their paperwork. If a system wasn’t working, she helped us get back on track and discover what would work. Carol is a tireless worker who gets you motivated even when you face a daunting process.

No More Tripping Over Piles of Junk
I just walked across by bedroom floor in the dark and it finally hit me… I don’t have to worry about tripping over piles of junk anymore!!! It feels so good to have all those bags of useless stuff out of my way and to be able to find all of the important things I need. Thank you so much for helping me organize my house and my life!

Solutions for a Growing Family…
I cannot begin to express the sense of relief and accomplishment that Carol has brought to my life! We are a growing family of four…soon to be five and needed to better organize the areas of storage in our home. Carol not only provided a plan for our task, but quickly and effectively helped me sort, purge and store our belongings. Our children had fun helping, too and found it rewarding to assign the best places for their toys and special keepsakes. I feel so fortunate to know Carol and look forward to working with her and Simple Organizing Solutions throughout my entire home!

Downsizing a Home…
Simple Organizing Solutions was the perfect remedy for our family. Circumstances forced us out of a larger home and into a downsized home closer to our children’s school. Unfortunately, I was not very organized prior to the move and the move itself was quick and not planned. As a result, we ended up paying to move things (mostly junk) into a much smaller space. Our new home had only a partial basement and every square inch of it was cluttered with boxes, clothes, toys, old baby items, and decorations galore. We could barely walk without climbing over or stepping on something.
Carol and her organizing solutions provided the tools our family needed to get moving. Carol helped me clear the space of unnecessary items. We actually filled a trailer style dumpster twice….with just garbage !!! I also made at least 12 visits to the local Salvation Army Thrift Shop. Once we significantly reduced the pile, Carol worked tirelessly with me to organize the small space. We got rid of all our card board boxes and everything is now labeled in clear plastic totes. We installed rugged, easy to assemble and inexpensive shelving so that nothing is on the floor. All my household decorations are organized by season and/or holiday. Extra kitchen items which are too large to storage in kitchen cabinets are readily stored on shelving at the bottom of the stairs.
Carol provided my family and I with skills necessary to not only have adequate and orderly storage in our tiny basement but we actually have extra space. I was able to set up my treadmill in the basement and we have an area where our children can do homework, or watch television or videos. Carol’s techniques are simple, effective, and inexpensive. Sometimes we all need a little nudge to get organized and Carol provided our family with the incentives to maintain order and minimize clutter. With her help, we also applied her organizing techniques to our whole first floor and we are currently working on the second floor. Carol expertise was invaluable and has made our transition to our smaller home much easier on the whole family. I have and will continue to recommend Simple Organizing Solutions to all my friends.

A Plan for Home Organization – “I can’t thank Carol enough…
Carol and I spent a long three days together essentially transforming my home. I can’t thank Carol enough for the energy and thought she put into sorting, cleaning, purging and organizing every aspect of my house. Before this, I was overwhelmed and paralyzed by the “stuff” in every nook and cranny, with the effort needed to maintain my spaces, and with the lack of a “flow”. Not only is the physical space sorted out, but there is now a flow and a plan that is efficient and effective – I love it and can actually stick to it.
I have lived with my “new” home for three weeks and without hesitation I can say the investment and Carol’s efforts will lead to a real change in how I manage my house and my life.
For the first time in a very long time, when I come home I actually spend time enjoying things I like to do without worrying about all of the things I “have” to do . The routine is getting closer to a steady state: I’m still learning, I slip every now and then and I’ve made a few tweaks; but what a difference it has made to the way I work my house.
I never would have been able to get to this point without Carol’s help.

Whole House Organization – “We Can Now Enjoy Our Beautiful Home!
I asked Carol to help me organize my kids’ toys not fully knowing what to expect. The results were nothing short of amazing. Carol is so dedicated and hard working, she is virtually unstoppable! She will not accept anything less than picture-perfect results. She is internally motivated and driven by her own personal commitment to see the job through from beginning to end. First she helped me get rid of the clutter and sort through everything. Then she designed the closets and helped me pick appropriate storage solutions. Finally, she was there when everything was installed and she helped me put everything exactly where it belongs. She wasn’t satisfied until she achieved the spectacular results that I enjoy today. Not only was I so happy with the beautiful work she did in my basement, but my whole family was very excited about it as well.
After experiencing the wonderful results of Carol’s work in the basement, I asked her to help me organize the rest of my home. She made organizing feel less like a chore and more like spending a nice afternoon with a friend. I found her to be very trust worthy.
I felt totally comfortable going through every room in the house with her. With her sharp and clear vision and thorough work, Carol has given me control back over my home and helped me see the pattern of my shopping habits that led to all the clutter and as a result I have more clarity in my thinking and a much more functional environment in my home. With her help and good advice, I have accomplished a lot more than I could have ever imagined on my own. My kids are now proud of their home. They tell everyone they meet about how well organized their things are and they are so excited about keeping things so nice and neat.
With Carol’s help, we can now enjoy our beautiful home again, and more importantly enjoy spending time together as a family doing the things we love. Thank you, Carol.
