What our clients are saying about us!

Hi Kathy,
I am writing to express my sincere gratitude for assisting me with organizing some of the space in my home. I moved to a home half the size of my previous home and every time I tried to tackle a project, I felt so overwhelmed and after a short while, would quit and walk away. I really did not know what to expect when I first contacted you, but after one session of 4 hrs, I could not believe what we accomplished! The garage space was really difficult for me, as I had not looked in some of those bins in years! We went through every single bin in 4 hours! A challenge I thought would take weeks! You have such a kind and calm demeanour about you. You were so patient and just basically took over when I felt I couldn’t deal with something. Thank you so much for your help. I am looking forward to having you help me with my paper clutter in the New Year.

Kathy is a godsend! I hadn’t been able to process all the stuff I inherited from relatives, let alone deal with my mother moving in and bringing her houseful of things with her. I truly was despairing of ever having a neat, clean and well-organised house again. But Kathy very quickly set things to rights, helping me to get rid of unnecessary clutter and learn that I can hold onto precious memories of family without having to keep all of their material possessions. She was kind, professional and non-judgemental, yet firm when I needed her to be. Each time I look at something I don’t need, I remember the “look” she would give, the one that said ‘do you really, really need to keep this?’ Thanks Kathy. I’ve sung your praises to everyone I know.

Kara and Sue were fantastic! We just moved and I was completely overwhelmed with the final task of organizing and purging the final boxes in our basement. These two were lovely and exactly the right help I needed. In 4 hours, my home gym was set up, boxes labelled and organized and donations gone. I felt so happy!! The customer service I received from Kathy was outstanding as well. I would recommend these gals to anyone who needs help.
