Introduction
As a Certified Professional Organizer with over 16 years of experience, I offer many services. I service the Los Angeles, Ventura, and Santa Barbara County areas. I do not charge for travel time and there are NO pre-paid contract fees (where an Organizer has a customer pre-pay for blocks of time up-front.) I charge an hourly rate and it is just for the time that I/we are working in your home/storage/business, etc. We offer: 1. Organizing (sorting, decluttering, etc.) 2. Packing/Unpacking 3. Assisting and Steps to Downsizing 4. Decluttering/Organizing/Pre-Staging a Move 5. Assisting Clients with Special Needs (ADD/ADHD/Dementia/Alzheimer’s and more) 6. Organizing a Closet/Room/Home After the Loss of a Loved One(s) 7. There is much more. (Please ask if you do not see your project listed.) Organizing/De-Cluttering Organizing is a passion and I enjoy sharing this with my clients. I have always enjoyed helping others and no two projects are ever the same. Are you overcome with clutter? Paperwork? Have you lost a loved one and cannot bring yourself to sort through and organize their belongings? Do you have a loved one who is surrounded by clutter, or do you just have a closet, room garage or possibly your entire home that needs a bit of attention? I offer many different solutions to any of these projects and more... Downsizing? I can help you with the sorting process and the decisions regarding what to keep and what to part with. We pack according to the needs of your move. Is it a local move? Out-of-state/Cross-Country? (an out-of-state move requires additional detail.) We include the packing paper. room labeling tape and tape for the boxes (no extra charge.) The labeling of the rooms will provide a much quicker way to organize the boxes for unpacking at your next residence. Everything is clearly labeled (room labels are color-coded) and there is special labeling for anyboxes that you will need within the first 24-48 hours. (please see my photos.) Unpacking? Have you just moved into your home and do not have the time to unpack? Do you want the added touch or a Professional Organizer? It is a pleasure to offer this and we still include items at no additional cost. We can not only unpack and organize your items, but we maximize every bit of the space you may have. When I complete the organization of a room or home, many times it will provide a life-changing experience for my client, especially those who have been dealing with clutter for many years. For those who are dealing with a lack of space, I am able to maximize that space In ways you never thought of and show you how to keep it that way. Special Needs? I have many adult clients with ADD/ADHD. Over the years I have come up with many different solutions to help solve the problem of clutter that you are dealing with. I have raised a child with ADHD and have taken care of someone with Parkinson's/Alzheimer's. I can honestly state that I relate to what you and/or a caregiver may be experiencing. I am here to help. For clients or caregivers who need assistance with Dementia/Alzheimer's, I also have helpful ways to relieve some of the issues you may be facing. Please...ask if you do not see anything listed or mentioned. The happiness of my clients is the main reason that I have been in business for over 16 years. Their joy at the end of the process and what my organizing can do for them has been lifechanging.

Laurie is the best professional certified organizer out there! She so sweet and caring and gets the job done without any hidden fees. She provides organizers at no additional cost. Doesn’t charge for mileage or assessment consultation. She organized my living room, cabinets and kitchen and we are very happy with her work! I had boxes of stuff I had not gone through in years and she help sort and organize everything which created a lot of more space for us to move around. She makes things very accessible. I wish I could hire her all the time. We definitely plan to hire her again in the future. For anyone looking to hire a professional organizer I highly recommend Laurie at A Time to be Organized! Don’t waste time with anyone else, trust me, I looked around and talked with others and saw a difference where others are out to make a profit. Laurie has integrity and does not take advantage of anyone. She is also certified which most out there are not. I will recommend Laurie to anyone looking to get organized.

A Time To Be Organized's reply
Juanita….It was such a pleasure to assist you and your husband with the organization of your home. Given the lack of the storage space that you expect to see (coat closet, linen cabinets, etc.) it can sometimes be a challenge. I had a wonderful time coming up with creative ways to not only get everything put away and organized, but to make it easy to keep it that way. With a new baby on the way, I understand that having everything ready and organized is important. I wish you and your family the very best! Laurie…🙏🏻😊

So glad we hired A Time to be organized to help pack our home for a move. From beginning to end, communication was great. Laurie got back to me right away as soon as I made an inquiry and we were able to set everything up. I sent photos of everything that needed to be packed so that they knew how many boxes (roughly) were needed. Shauna came to our home to pack everything and did such a great job! She was cautious with our belongings and asked questions when needed. She’d also bring up things I hadn’t even thought of which was so appreciated. On top of all that, she was so pleasant and easy to talk to. I didn’t feel at all like I had a stranger in my home. Would definitely recommend and hire them again. Thank you!

Details: Packing • 3 rooms • Packing supplies

Laurie and her assistant helped organize, edit and stage our 4,000 sq. ft. home in preparation for putting it on the market for sale. I would never have been able to tackle this job on my own. I look forward to working with her again when we move to our new property.

Laura was amazing and utilized my own furniture. I could not afford to spend the money for an expensive stager and she de-cluttered my home and used the furniture that I had. I sold my home in 4 days with multiple bids! I would highly recommend her to anyone, especially as an organizer.

Laurie and Rhonda were fantastic to work with! Rhonda arrived on time and immediately got to work. She is organized and works very hard. Because of the work Rhonda did at my home, I felt a peace when all the junk was cleared and the closet was organized. On top of all that, she was so sweet and kind. I would definitely recommend A Time to be Organized.
