Packing and Unpacking
This was a great experience! I just moved into a new home which is much smaller than my previous home. I was overwhelmed with all the boxes and Beth came in and got right to work. She’s very good at seeing where things should go and we were able to find the perfect spot for everything that I decided to keep. Thanks again Beth for your help!Jan 3, 2021VerifiedIt's Just Stuff!'s reply
Thank you Ling for choosing It's Just Stuff to help you get unpacked and settled in your new home in Denver. It was very unfortunate that the movers who unloaded everything from your previous home in VA did not do so with any amount of care or consideration and left you feeling even more overwhelmed than a typical move can leave people feeling. It is one of the reasons I am so passionate about helping anyone with packing, unpacking and any other move management services including being the coordinator with the actual mover on the load and unload day(s) as an extra set of eyes, ears and hands to make sure they are doing their actual job. I am so glad, though, that you found IJS on Thumbtack and hired us because it was an absolute pleasure to work with you and wish you all of the best in your new home! Beth Blacker - IJS Founder

Beth helped me organize and move my elderly father from Denver to Niwot after my brother passed away in an accident. She was/is a literal godsend! So patient and loving helping him work through his resistance to letting go of every item so we could move him closer to me. My dad is very sweet but stubborn and not always easy - especially around home and stuff. I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t have gotten him to Boulder/Niwot without her. Beth isn’t just an organizer. She’s a wonderful person whose patience and kindness made all the difference in a very challenging time for me and my family.Nov 3, 2020It's Just Stuff!'s reply
Thank you so much Liana! I adore your father in spite of his stubborn ways at times. He definitely knows what he wants and how to get it !!! Anytime he needs anything do not hesitate to ask.

Beth was irreplaceable fir my complicated move. She was badass, smart, organized and great to work with. Highly recommend her!Dec 10, 2020It's Just Stuff!'s reply
Thank you Terri! The move was "complicated" as you said but not impossible. I am so glad a previous client referred you to IJS and hope you are enjoying your new home in this new year!

I talked with IJS about a job and got a very reasonable quote and some tips for no cost! She was very knowledgeable and friendly and I would recommend getting with her for organizing any space.Nov 25, 2020It's Just Stuff!'s reply
Thanks Trish for the very kind words. I am glad you were able to find someone who could do both the packing and loading for your upcoming move and hope that it goes smoothly. Wishing you all the best with your transition to your new home in a new state but if you ever decide to come back to CO and need some help unpacking feel free to reach out :)

Beth is a whirlwind of organization; she is fast, efficient and highly creative in her organizing solutions. If you are moving she will make packing and unpacking pleasant. If you have too much stuff she will help you pare down. If your stuff is disorganized she will find an organizing solution. I have worked with Beth for over 5 years and I highly recommend her!Nov 4, 2020It's Just Stuff!'s reply
Thank you Teri...it is always a pleasure to work with you and, of course, I have greatly appreciated all of the referrals you have sent to IJS :)
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Pricing is based to some degree on the project but the typical home organizing or move management hourly rate is $60. For any other services (admin support, general errands, petsitting/housesitting, meal prep) please provide specific details when inquiring about It's Just Stuff services to better determine the scope of the project.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I generally request that we schedule a 30 minute free virtual consult to make sure that your needs match my expertise but also to get more details about the project as well as see if there might be any issues or obstacles especially ones that need to be addressed up front. Most clients find this to be a very comforting way to make sure It's Just Stuff will be a good fit. Sometimes a client just doesn't feel a connection and that's ok...the most important thing is to make sure there is a complete understanding of the goals and budget.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I like to think that most of my education and training for any of the services It's Just Stuff provides is a result of a life of experiences. I have a degree in communications which I do maintain I use each and every day running this business. And I have a great amount of empathy and compassion for any organizing client struggling with executive functioning. Most importantly, I truly do have a natural desire for their to be less chaos and more order in our homes but that requires understanding that the true source is usually a result of internal clutter which then becomes external clutter. My entire life I have just been someone who likes everything in place and contained so it really is a nature vs. nurture thing for me. I am constantly educating myself on the latest information regarding all of the moving parts to being in this profession as well as engaging with other professional organizers literally around the world to discuss trends, challenging situations, etc. Bottom line, I am confident in my abilities and how I connect with clients.
