About Me in Your Home - Services & Fees

I'm Lauren Williams, Certified Professional Organizer®, Certified Virtual Professional Organizer®, the founder of Casual Uncluttering, and I can't imagine a better way for me to earn a living than as a Professional Organizer coming into your shelter to give you back your control, peace of mind, health and dignity. I collaborate with clients in every room in a house, attic to basement, home office, home business, garage, shed, storage units and even a horse barn. I help with arts & crafts, paperwork, memorabilia, laundry, leftover microwaves in corners and I'm comfortable with many levels of disorganization. I like kids, cats, dogs and more exotic pets! I've worked with hundreds of clients to get their stuff sorted and systems in place for them to use, put away and find their items again OR let go whenever necessary. Stuff management, time and stress management and space planning are all involved.

I've moved cross country three times - I understand disruption! 

I have a BA from Bryn Mawr College, and an MBA from Baruch College of the City University of New York. I proudly claim a professional history in a variety of settings, from think tanks and small non-profits to large academic institutions. I've worked with nuns, doctors, lawyers and many other demanding specialists as well. I refined my organizing skills while subscription manager for scholarly publications, office and records manager for fundraising departments, senior administrator for a university dean - a jack-of-all-trades with a mind for details.

I've been the stay-at-home parent to a special-needs child, but we are fortunate that my young person has improved over time and I can now maintain my business. I am openly bisexual, out since 1982, volunteering at the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Community Center of NYC, during Pride Parades and in membership in various queer organizations. I once founded a two-person company producing gay greeting cards, several years before they were fashionable. I'm familiar with and comfortable in the leather community.

I'm divorced and downsized from the 4,600 sq. ft. house to the 1,024 sq. ft. apartment.

I enjoy structure and organization, and combining functionality and form - I can shop at flea markets and thrift stores for hours to find the "THAT'S IT!" jewelry box, or spend 45 minutes on the floor at superstores making sure my youngster can open the plastic boxes intended for toys.

Honest Biscuits - watch my storeroom adventures part 1...Final tallies in 4 hours - 3 large bags of trash gone, 3 boxes of boxes to recycle, 15 empty milk crates uncovered, and significant sorting finished. I've also been providing some guidance to the back office, getting structures in place for easing paperwork processing. And 2!


And then there's my time helping a client conquer a Harry Potter closet.


I'm conducting organizing sessions by teleconference - Zoom, Duo, Microsoft Teams, or tell me about a mechanism you like and I'm gonna investigate it the same day. One-on-one teleconferenced organizing meetings, also known as "virtual" or "remote" organizing, are usually shorter than a "regular" engagement, focus on well-defined projects even more closely than side-by-side work, and can actually have some powerful advantages over efforts where I'm hands-on with you.

This kind of collaboration isn't for everyone, so I can't promise we'll sign a contract for a virtual partnership. If you'd like a laugh, read about my preparation misadventures on my blog. If this is an intriguing idea, call me at 425-947-3976 or email me at lauren@casualuncluttering.com. If virtual doesn't end up being a possibility, I'm still going to get to you in-person again, sooner or later. Please let your colleagues, your friends and family know about me and about virtual organizing - I'll be able to help an English-speaking person (yup, no talent whatsoever at other languages) anywhere in the world.

In the meanwhile, reach out to someone you fought with, call that college buddy, mail a letter to someone.

Be safe, be well.

Casual Uncluttering LLC Testimonial - Sam, age 10
From Sam, age 10. Always going to be a favorite testimonial.

I can help you make your life better through getting yourself organized. I know I have a personal understanding of the impact a special-needs person can have on a family's routines, space and ability to keep things in place.

I get huge satisfaction when I am able to help people on a deeply personal, highly collaborative level. I constantly need to be creative and think on my feet to develop solutions with my clients. There are very few people who are "traditional" "neat-as-a-pin" thinkers. It's fun to help people explore outside-of-the-box ideas and methods for resolving their problems. And it's a wonderful reward to help people regain comfort and peace in their homes, or get new space for a new aspect of their lives, like turning a garage into an art studio.

I want this process to be fun. I will use humor at every opportunity to make this work easier. I am also able to work in what some people see as a very informal environment - with the kids side-by-side with us, the cat trying to get into the boxes, the plumber at your house at the same time. That can make the effort easier for you, and that is a key to success. This job has to be 100% client-centered. If you have to call it quits early because your 2-year-old just had a temper tantrum, we will. And we'll start again when you can.

I will always listen to you. I enjoy hearing my clients' stories, getting introduced to their history. I'm glad I can help them preserve what's timeless and support them as they move into new phases of their lives. My clients and I will have many conversations about their needs, hopes, strengths and weaknesses. The process and work of getting organized, if well-done, makes people more self-aware.

I can often begin as early as 8:00AM or start as late as 6:00PM. I will offer virtual services whenever my client and I can get time zones to cooperate.


I help you declutter and arrange your belongings. I guide you through discovering the systems and the approaches that work for you in your surroundings and your point in life.

In the process, you might discover anything from a string of pearls to old college textbooks. I help you find your timeless treasures, and give you ideas on how to honor your property by keepng it carefully and conveniently.

I support you as you let go of items you may no longer need, and together we create storage systems so the possessions you value no longer get lost or damaged. Those systems can be for artwork, mementos, clothes, pots and pans or any other materials in your household, in any space in your house from your attic to your basement, home office, garage, storage unit or your barn.

I work with physical items such as

  • Collectibles and Antiques
  • Toys
  • Arts & Crafts Supplies
  • Pet Care Items
  • Personal Care Products
  • Paperwork
  • Books

I do not work on virtual properties such as computer files or time management systems. I do not perform housecleaning, assembly or disassembly of furniture, shelving, or closet systems; move furniture greater than 25 pounds; climb ladders or any other related activities, but I will gladly provide referrals to contractors for such tasks. I will not build, alter, or install anything in your home, but will refer you to qualified craftsmen as necessary for such action.

I pledge that I will always act with discretion and confidentiality concerning a client's home and life.
