11:00 am- KonMari Method

Spring Cleaning Home Organization was born when I started helping friends organize their closets and prepare spaces for home businesses...I realized they saw a mess and became paralyzed, while I saw a mess and got excited! I can see the clarity and calm waiting on the other side of chaos, and I love helping people discover them.

Clearing clutter also allows us to love our space again, whether it’s a closet, a garage or your whole house. When there is clutter and too much “stuff” in our lives, it often causes anxiety and stress that affect other parts of our lives.

I use my tried and true methods to create a space you love, whether it’s a few drawers or an entire house. The lightness you’ll feel when we’re done may surprise and delight you!
