Introduction: Organizers are typically known for...well, organizing stuff. My skills can do that in a heartbeat; but my passion is seeing the *person* behind the stuff. My unique blend of connection, compassion and understanding makes the efficiency a bonus. A typical week might see me organizing garages, closets, downsizing and unpacking...but my real delight is bringing stress relief and joy. I value my clients as people, listening and guiding thinking and feelings as we address the stuff together. Whether it's everyday clutter or level 4 hoarding, my heart is eager to meet and understand yours. Let's see how we can turn your chaos into calm. Since 2003, my professional organizing skills have impacted everyday households across the country. (Other countries too, but that's another story!) Will your family be the next people to benefit from Organized by Wendy?

I can't sing Wendy's praises loud enough. Finding someone on Thumbtack is a little intimidating. I wasn't sure what to expect. After speaking with Wendy, I decided to give it a try, and I'm glad I did! She showed up on time and was there until the job was done. She possesses the ability to organize and sort that I just don't have. We purged, packed and purged some more and then packed a storage unit. Wendy wasn't scared of to get her hands dirty, regardless of how bad it was. She wasn't scared to pack those heavy boxes if books in an interest of space. Wendy took a lot of stress off of my shoulders, in a time that was very stressful. I will use her again and highly recommend her services.

Details: Packing • 3 rooms

Angel I loved getting to meet you, and I kind of hate that I was helping you pack to move away! You are someone I’d love to get to know more; I know that you will bring happiness and kindness to everyone you meet in your new location. Thanks for The opportunity to work with you!

Wendy is AMAZING! She is incredibly efficient at what she does, listens to all of my needs/wants/concerns, and leaves my home with me feeling relieved and relaxed with all of the accomplishments made through purging and organization. Highly recommend.

Taylor, yours is one of my all-time favorite projects. Hearing your heart as we worked together was a treasure to me -- those are the times that make me know I'm doing exactly what I'm designed to do.

Wendy and I worked together on the trustee committee for a non-profit organization. In our year together, we started by taking an initial inventory of everything in the facility. Next, we purged everything broken, outdated, or unneeded. We also organized the non-profit's facility records, reallocated spaces in the building, reorganized resources, and insured maintenance was up-to-date. (When I say "we," I mean mostly Wendy.) Wendy didn't just put stuff where it belonged. She navigated the thorny people side of things, too; helping everyone across the organization come to terms with the changes. Not an easy task when there are that many people with that many strong emotional ties to that much stuff! The result was a more functional facility that better served its purpose and made it easier for everyone to do their job. I couldn't have done it without her expertise!

Dixie, what a year that was! It was tremendous to make such vast impact in such a succinct time period. Thank you for verbalizing the before & after that simply cannot be captured in pictures. Your leadership on that committee was a gift; I would work with you any time.

FAQs

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

    General pricing: $65/hour for everyday households $85/hour for hoarding situations. Appointments are a 3 hour minimum. Payment is due the day of service. 24 hour notice required to avoid $50 cancellation fee. Ask about discounts available: veterans, seniors and nonprofit employees. Package pricing and gift certificates available.

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

    1. A brief phone talk gives us a glimpse as to how well we will understand each other and work together. If another organizer is better suited to the work requested, I like to relay that up front. 2. I send an email to confirm all details about your appointment so that we are on the same page. 3. I show up with a great attitude, ready to tackle your project!

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

    My BS/MA are education/curricular related, which provide a foundation for me to better grasp your goals and the challenges involved in meeting them. Years of counseling training (*not* licensed) and experiences mean that my approach includes great depths of compassion, consideration and even negotiating skills. I served on the OC Task Force on Hoarding -- the first of its kind nationwide -- before hoarding was " a thing" and I love working with, not just the stuff, but getting to know people behind the stuff. My every client is valuable and talented and offers unique giftings to the world. My task is to free up the tangible hurdles that interrupt their giftedness.
