Would you like to:
- Unclutter your space and your life?
- Make your kitchen, work room or living room fun, pleasant, creative, and functional?
I'm a Certified Professional Organizer(R) who works in homes, home businesses and also small businesses.
I help you think outside of the box to get something into the box
I collaborate with you to find comfortable, affordable solutions for your challenges. We'll create accessible spaces you can enjoy for your work, hobbies, games, art collections, your pots and pans or your toner cartridges, outstanding invoices and product samples. We'll be organizing your closets, your files, your clothes, you name it! I've worked in every room in a home, attic to basement, garage, shed, storage units, and even a horse barn.
There can be many reasons. I wish everyone considering getting help from an organizer understood that it is nothing to be ashamed about or embarrassed by...
Everyone has strengths and weaknesses.
When you need help organizing, most often you simply need help discovering what systems will work for you. I can guide you to that discovery and coach you through to a completed project.
- Many of my clients lack skills to structure their surroundings - their closets, bookshelves, desktops. They weren't always taught how to organize themselves.
- Others have the ability and knowledge, but events such as illness, work transitions, or changes in family cause them to fall behind.
- Some cannot find a starting point, or prefer company while they create their systems, or cannot find the tools they need to accomplish their goals.
- A person's lack of time management skills can contribute to their disorganization: we'll look at time-keeping techniques.
- Sentimentality and fear can get in the way of decisions. We can talk about that.
- A person's anxiety about the process can contribute to their disorganization - let's see what might help.
I help you gain the education and resources you need to get organized and keep yourself organized even as your circumstances evolve over your lifetime. The results will never be perfect, but they will be effective and satisfying.
I want you to laugh during this adventure.
A chat with Charles Mendelson, Seattle Holistic Beauty
Some of the best money I've ever spent on improving the quality of my life. Lauren is also a coach and mentor who is teaching me the habits of mind necessary to be independent of her services in the future. Felt very comfortable with Lauren in my home with my private things and issues. Dawn R., Tacoma, November 2018
This is the first time I have had any experience having help with my clutter. We are relocating after 33 years in this house. My daughter-in-law volunteered to help me by finding someone to help me attack this monstrous project. She looked up many organizers and then called and chatted with the ones that responded to her, (surprisingly not all responded). Lauren was her FIRST choice for me. She said that Lauren responded timely, asked the most relevant questions regarding the project, gave her information on how she works and seemed insightful to my situation. 33 years is a long time to collect and store paper, trinkets, cards, pictures, business records etc. We have been working 1-2 days a week for a little over a month now, and I realize I could have opened a Christmas Store AND a card shop with all the excess I had in these areas.
Before we started, I felt self-conscious about the status of my house and would not let anyone come over. Lauren has helped my clutter situation immensely, I am well on my way of being organized and MINIMAL. She has helped me MORE with my sense of self-worth. Lauren is always quick to point out how far I have come with my comfort level purging items I no longer need. When I started it would be "I guess I can give that up", she recently pointed out I am now saying "I don't need that anymore". After our first session of three hours, I have looked forward to getting this done-not dreading having to do it and I believe, it is the manner in which Lauren goes about assisting me and "how" she says things to me that brought about that change in my attitude.
She is always punctual, comes in with the items she has identified we will need to work smoothly (boxes, markers, tape etc) and not have to stop and look around to get. She has always been professional yet comfortable to talk with. She also is aware of many service providers to assist me with donating furniture (where they will pick-up), clothing, business equipment & furniture, moving and cleaning-up activities. She has given me names phone numbers to at least 8-10 providers, many I did not even know anyone did such a service! Bottom line is my daughter-in-law was right Lauren has been perfect for me for so many reasons delineated above.
I no longer feel embarrassed about the state my house had become---it just happened while we were living and at times just trying to survive.
Thank you Lauren!!! C.L., Puyallup, October 2017
