Introduction: I have been organizing and decorating for years. I use a common sense approach. Something not too many people have, or have not taken the time to develop. My favorite show used to be house hunters but I have graduated to American Pickers and Storage Wars. I subscribe to HGTV. I am also in the process of becoming certified in the professional organizing field and a senior move manager. I am a member of NAPO: National Association for Productivity and Organization. Here's some places you can find me: facebook.com/groups/Cluttercontrolsgroup facebook.com/cluttercontrols75/ I most like the response I get from my accounts who never "looked at things that way" or just don't know where to start. I Love rearranging furniture and organizing for a given space. What works in one house does not necessarily work when you move somewhere else. Decorate for the space! Don't shoe horn old furniture into a brand new small cottage! NOTE 2019: I believe staging and organizing is all related but I do not quote Thumbtack staging leads. They are too specific and too restricting for the services that Clutter Controls Offers. 2020 I was tasked with a whole estate clean out from organizing to conducting weekly yards sales, to providing handy person services, to running an online auction, to packing to moving the leftovers to storage, to coordinating with the family, the subs, the realtors, the buyers and more! I continue to sell collectible items and continue to share the profits with the family thereby keeping a whole lot of stuff out of landfills! I have a little shop of bargains in 3 different states.

Home Organizing

After meeting with Suzy and Diana when they came to my home to get an overview of the work I needed done, I knew instantly they were a perfect fit for me. From their professionalism, to their wonderful personalities, and their ability to put me at ease, I’m so thrilled I chose them. Suzy worked tireless and efficiently with me to declutter, organize, and get rid of all the things I no longer wanted or needed in my home. I was completely overwhelmed before she came. Without her, I would still be behind a mountain of years of amounted clutter in my 950 sq foot condo. She packed, organized, put together a standing clothes rack, discarded all the trash, donated bags of clothing, shoes, kitchen items, books, etc for me. She organized my kitchen, bedroom, spare room, bathroom, dining room, closets, and hallways. I highly recommend them if you’re looking for the best people to help you! I loved that they also have a handyman to help if you need him, saving me from having to find several people from different companies. Thank you Suzy and Diana! Truly. You helped to change my life in such a positive way!

Home Staging

I worked with Diana for organizing my home files. The project is complete, on time and on budget! She was awesome, pleasant, helpful, easy to deal with, understanding (I'm deaf) and very efficient. She offered lots of related services as well (with out ANY pressure) and tons of helpful suggestions. I gladly recommend her and hope to work with her again. Thanks, Diana!! It was a pleasure to work with you and I'm thrilled my files are organized!

Diane was wonderful in helping me tackle the 'scary' places in my home, those areas I just didn't dare try to organize on my own! When I come home from a long day at work, I no longer feel the stress of clutter! Everything has a place.

Packing and Unpacking

i am a disabled person on a fixed income who recently moved from a large home into a small apartment and, after three months here, was having a really hard time settling in. it was a hard summer for my body and i just couldn't get my feet under me long enough to get anything productive done. i really had no idea what to expect when i contacted clutter controls, i just knew that i was drowning in a sea of unpacked boxes and overwhelm and, with house guests arriving soon, i needed help fast. i contacted them on wednesday and suzy was at my place by friday. on top of working tirelessly to help me get more unpacking done and rearranging things so that they're more effective for use, she was a delightful conversationalist and so encouraging along the way. the following monday, i saw suzy again to finish the work and she made sure that we did because she knew i was on a budget and we couldn't waste time. by the time she left me, my apartment was guest-ready and i was so relieved. she even hauled all the empty boxes away and dragged all the generated trash out to the cans, all things that i also struggle with. it took a little more scheduling to get my washer and dryer stacked as the handyman (mike) needed to extend the dryer hose and cord which required ordering parts and finding another person to help with the heavy lifting. but they handled all of that for me so that all i had to do was tell them the times i was available and they picked the one that worked for everyone on their end. in the end, my apartment was just the way i needed it to be by the time my guests arrived and i could not be happier about it. i got to meet diane, too, who is just as lovely to talk to as suzy. it's clear why they make such a great team. before i found clutter controls, i didn't even know a service like theirs existed. i was out of my mind with anxiety and had no one to help me. i'm so grateful to have found them and i feel really positively about moving forward with my space. beyond just getting my home in order, and without a single ounce of judgment, i was given a lot of tips about how to proceed with my life in a way that maintains the order they worked so hard to help me find. if i had it to give, i would have tipped every one of them very generously. as it stands, they are well worth the money and will change your life if you let them.

Diana is a hard worker and had some great functional storage ideas. She had a knack for finding a spot for all of my stuff. It was a great start to my organizing project! The only thing that would have improved my experience is if she asked me "Why do you even need that? Get rid of it!" and forced me to purge more of my clutter. I'd definitely recommend Diana to someone looking for help with sorting and arranging the items in their home. Thanks Diana!

FAQs

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

    I will price by the hour the day or by the job if I am not sure how long something will take. If I use my colleagues, I will take a referral fee and quote their hourly rate. I do not charge for travel. I also accept credit cards and paypal. NOTE 2019: I believe staging and organizing is all related but I do not quote Thumbtack staging leads. They are too specific and too restricting for the services that Clutter Controls Offers.

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

    I listen to what they need, make suggestions and decide on a time when I can come to evaluate their space. I like to look at a whole house because the rest of the house may effect the space that needs the work. I take pictures and set up a Pinterest board with my ideas. I will then quote the job and estimate how long it will take. NOTE 2019: I believe staging and organizing is all related but I do not quote Thumbtack staging leads. They are too specific and too restricting for the services that Clutter Controls Offers.

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

    I am currently enrolled in NAPO: National Association of Professional Organizers. I am taking courses in order to get certified (yes there is an organization like that! ). I have also taken a tremendous amount of Video Courses for MaxSold.com. This is helping me with my Senior Downsizing opportunities. I do a tremendous amount of research on web sites for pricing information and details. NOTE 2019: I believe staging and organizing is all related but I do not quote Thumbtack staging leads.
