Type of home organizing service
Removal of unwanted items,
Jolene was a great listener... very caring and non-judgemental. She was professional and knowledgeable about organizing. Plus she has the patience to help me push past some of the roadblocks that I had about organizing my home. I would (and have) recommended her to my friends.Sep 14, 2019Verified
I can’t say enough nice things about Jolene. She was a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend her. We had many organizing projects to do in our home, starting with an accumulation of paper work, also organizing closets, cabinets etc. I was hesitant at first about a stranger coming into my house and seeing our “mess”, but Jolene made us feel comfortable and earned our trust quickly! It is such a great feeling to have our home organized. She not only helped with the organizing, but she taught me along the way. I would recommend it to anyone who is feeling overwhelmed with “things”!Oct 7, 2018VerifiedDesigned To Be Organized's reply
Thank you so much for the kind review. It was such a pleasure to get to know you and your family. You all were model clients and so open to suggestions that you made my job a joy. I’m so happy you’re enjoying your new space!
I was reluctant to hire an organizer because it’s difficult to have a total stranger come in and see all my stuff. I’m so glad I didn’t let that fear control me because now I see how much easier my life has become as a result of getting organized. I don’t have a sense of dread when I look around my home. Jolene didn’t make decisions for me about what to toss, but she gave me guidelines and permission to “let go”. Organizing truly is an investment in my life. Jolene teaches systems to stay organized. The process is much more than I could have hoped for. I will definitely recommend her to others.Dec 31, 2018Verified
I was a little hesitant to bring a stranger into my house to help organize but after moving from one state to another I deff needed some help getting my closet more functional as well as my room, make up stuff and jewelry. Those were the biggest things giving me anxiety! Jolene was great she helped me knock it out in 5 hrs and it looked amazing. She gave me some great tips which ive passed onto my fiancé and I’m still using daily to maintain the organization. One thing however I realized that you can’t be quoted before hand, I deff thought it was possible to do my place in under 4 hours (I was wrong hahah) there’s a lot of detail that goes into organizing and if you want it done properly it deff takes time!! It also helps to purge alot of things before hand to save time on what to do with the clutter I can’t thank Jolene enough for helping get my life on track, I feel less stressed and my place looks amazing, you showed me how to utilize my space in a more functional way and I love it. You were also a very pleasant person and it was lovely having you help me. Thank youDec 14, 2018VerifiedDesigned To Be Organized's reply
You were a pleasure to work with and easy to coach! I'm so glad your fiance had a pleasant surprise when he came home.

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I start with a phone call to discuss the customer's situation and how I work. Next, I do an in-home consultation for a more realistic picture of the customer's project and to give them a plan of action. If time permits, I can start that day or reschedule a better time for the customer. Once there, I employ a keep, donate, toss system. Most projects require the customer to be present to make decisions and learn skills along the way. There are times when that is not necessary.
