Personal Organizing

Neat, clean and organized is lifestyle you deserve.  Let us help you achieve that goal.   We’ll work with you in a totally non-judgmental and empathetic way and will always respect your privacy.  Established in 1999 and located in Bedminster, NJ, we provide expert organizing services to individuals and families throughout NJ.  We are also skilled in successfully working with children and adults with ADHD so they can be more organized and efficient at school and work.   For your peace of mind, we are Certified in Chronic Disorganization with the Institute for Chronic Disorganization, continue to maintain an “A+” rating with the Better Business Bureau and have earned a solid “A” rating on Angie’s List.

We realize that each individual and every family has a unique style, so we custom-tailor our organizing systems so they’re easy to use and maintain. Our mission is to help you feel in control of your surroundings so that you never feel owned by your possessions or rushed through every day.

There are many organizing books and products on the market, but since many of them are not designed for your brain type, trying to use these products and information that aren’t meant for you can be frustrating.  At your very first work session, after a quick walk-through and discussion about the areas you wish to improve, we’ll get right down to work with you in the area of your choice.   We’re completely hands-on and do all the physical work with you.  You’ll see immediate changes, feel instant relief and will never again have to worry about being judged by others for being disorganized.  More importantly, we’ll teach you how to maintain your newly-ordered spaces, so you’ll always feel in control of your home and office.  Our services are completely confidential.

Part of the kitchen and all of the dining room of this lovely colonial was cluttered with things inherited from the estates of two family members. This couple need help sorting through and storing everything while they kept busy managing many other things. We quickly and methodically tackled the job, found homes for everything, and transformed the kitchen and dining room into beautiful spaces in time for the Thanksgiving holiday.

The first step in reorganizing this home office was to de-clutter, relocate the plastic storage bins to the closet (located to the left of the desk) and re-route the computer wires so that everyone could work more efficiently. This also made the work area more attractive. Most of the books in the bookcase were unneeded and donated, making room for everyday office items and ready access.

It was a delight working with this 10-year old girl. She had special love of reading in three languages which was reflected in her book collection. She wanted to keep most of her books but also be able to entertain her friends and show off her other collections, too. We worked together (and sang together) and look at the results!
Before
After
Moving into the room, we just had to de-clutter a bit, use drawer and shelf space more effectively, and show off the things that really mattered to this delightful girl. We worked together and quickly found a great place for all the things she wanted to keep.

The second bedroom in this rental was used as a combination guest room and home office, but the client felt so visually overwhelmed that she rarely worked there. We knew it just needed a little de-cluttering and reorganizing and a bit of TLC. In just a few minutes we create a functional and inviting space for work.

This two-car garage became cluttered and this growing family could not easily locate what they needed to find. The homeowner and I de-cluttered first and then zoned out the garage according to theme and also made it safer for the two young children to be in there. We accomplished all this in only one work session!

By getting most of the items off the floor and onto the walls or shelves, we created an efficient storage space for the family and opened up two parking spaces.

This teenager's bedroom needed to mature with her and also required a bit of decluttering. We created a space for her hermit crabs and borrowed a bookcase from her brother that he no longer wanted and created a library and display area. Together with her we decluttered and reorganized 75% of the room in just four hours.,
Before
After
To open the space, we moved the armoire that was too close to the door, decluttered the interior and used the space to house some of the items in bins on the floors. The rest was tossed or donated. Now the room is a cozy nest for sleeping, reading and doing homework.

This young boys room became cluttered over time. We moved his toys to the playroom, removed a bookcase he didn't need and restored it to a peaceful place for him to read and sleep.

It's not uncommon to find that our clients are so busy in other areas of their homes that they neglect themselves. In just a few hours we decluttered the homeowner's bedroom and created a serene place to land at the end of the day.

What are the benefits of getting and staying organized?

Be as organized at home as you are at work.

Listen to Eileen Barrett discuss paper management strategies at the 2013 NJ Home Expo.

Many people ask us why they can’t be as organized at home as they are at work.  We’ll explain this to you so that you can develop a different set of organizing skills at home.  You’ll have all the things you need in the places you need to use them so you don’t waste time buying multiples or looking for things.  Your house will look great and you’ll always be ready for unexpected guests.  Have more time to relax and enjoy yourself.

Finally overcome that helpless feeling of being chronically disorganized.

We understand that some of the most brilliant and creative people in the world are also coping with ADHD, OCD, Bi-Polar Disorder, Depression or coping with unexpected life changes in their household.  We have extensive experience working with children and adults who are chronically disorganized at home, work and school.  We’ll work with you to develop long-lasting solutions so you will never have to worry again about being judged by others for being disorganized.

Feel in control of your day and stop rushing around.

De-cluttering, reorganizing and maximizing space in your home or office is the first step in regaining control of your environment.  You’ll know where to find important information and the things you use the most.  We’ll coach you on how to structure your day to meet life’s demands so you can feel less distracted and more focused.  Many clients tell us that once they become “unstuck”, they see many other positive changes in their lives like losing weight, getting in shape, performing better at their job, getting a new job or promotion and having healthier and more harmonious relationships with loved ones.   The same organizing habits that work at home will also work at your job, so they are well-worth learning.

Living an organized lifestyle will quickly teach your children life-long organizing skills.

It’s difficult to teach children the benefits of an organized lifestyle amid chaos and clutter.  It’s easier de-clutter their spaces, re-zone them and coach them on how to use their spaces so that organizing seems natural and effortless.  We’ll work with you to create a comfortable and convenient homework station and a place for their backpacks, lunch bags, school supplies, coats and shoes.  Getting ready for school will be easier and less stressful and your children will carry these successful habits to college and beyond.  We’ll suggest age-appropriate activities your children can do to become more self-sufficient and organized.  We work one-on-one with children as young as five years old.  It’s never too soon to teach organizing skills to children!

Call us to today to discuss your organizing projects, and we’ll develop a quick, preliminary action plan with you over the phone. At our scheduled work session we’ll do a quick walk-through, discuss your options, and then begin working together with you in the area of your choice.  Since our reputation is at stake with every new client, we want to make sure that our services not only meet but surpass your expectations.  Clients continually tell us they feel enormous relief just after making the initial phone call to us, and especially after we begin working together in person.
