Introduction: I absolutely love helping people organize, declutter, and transform their homes into refreshing and rejuvenating spaces! I am a retired teacher with many years of experience in transforming work areas, paper decluttering, children's spaces and areas of the home that get out of hand. I also work with those who need to downsize and move from one place to another. I am a widow who raised 6 children and understand circumstances that need a "helping hand". Let me be that hand for you!

Evelyn was amazing. My husband and I are newlyweds, and haven't figured out yet how to make our house a functional home. In two days, Evelyn helped us get our living room and kitchen in order. Today I was able to cook for most of the morning, and have everything back in its place because everything now has a place. My husband got home from work on the first day and said, "Wow, worth every penny." It was a great experience.

Evi has been wonderful to work with in my office space and sewing room. She’s full of ideas, yet doesn’t overstep boundaries of my likes and dislikes. She’s very helpful guiding me through the processes of organizing. Purging paper files of years of accumulation freed up so much space! AND she took them to the shredders for disposal! She has a sweet disposition and is easy to work with. I’ll be using her again on my next project...THE GARAGE!!!

Evi was the ideal work partner. Positive. Fresh ideas. Hard working. And Fun! Together we powered through our piles of post-move-clutter and produced clean and relaxing living space. Not only is the place clean, it’s coordinated and cute. A fresh pair of eyes can look at your belongings and coordinate them in a new light. It’s the best self-care activity I can think of because it keeps on giving and giving.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I can charge by the hour, but also do package pricing. With two or more 4 hour packages there are incremental discounts.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I give a free in-home consultation or can discuss on the phone the needs of the job. It is difficult to determine the time a particular organizing job can take. Client will make decisions about discarding and systems needed to organize the space. I do all shopping for needed supplies, but client pays for items and for any outside needs such as hauling, handyman, etc.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have been involved with ProOrganizers and with local organizing groups. I was a special needs teacher and have extensive experience with organizing spaces used in classrooms, offices and homes.
