    One of our clients had twelve spatulas in her kitchen
   because she could never find one when she needed it.
 

   She would continuously buy a new spatula, use it, wash
   it, and throw it in
 a random drawer.




   "We recently moved into a new house and had an issue with putting systems in place that allowed us to live our best life.  Whenever
    we walked into the kitchen, we were overwhelmed with the amount of stuff on our counters.  We had duplicates of things; we
    couldn't see anything; it was a mess!


    Working with Jodi helped me find better placement for the items that we use every day vs. the things we use a few times a year.
    The space planning allowed us to take our tiny kitchen with little cabinet space and make it feel so much larger while finding a home
    for everything!

    Now I can look in my kitchen and see clean countertops, and feel a sense of peace.  When I open my cabinets, I see all of our food
    goods stored in easy-to-reach and organized ways.  It's been life-changing!"

 closer together!

    ADD/ADHD - "Body doubling" is not just for movie stunts! 
   In the organizing world, it involves:

    Sitting with a client to keep that person focused on a task

   Working together with a client to start and finish a project
   Tackling a project that a client needs to do but keeps getting distracted  

    If you have ADD/ADHD, we are ready to help:


    Create personal and family schedules

   Get to-do lists under control
   Complete chores that have become daunting rather than routine
   Modify filing systems to match your style of thinking

    
   "Before hiring Organizing Magic, I had not properly filed records for 3 years and even before that, my receipts and important papers
    were everywhere, but not together!

    Working with Jodi has helped me to focus, to set up files that are efficient and user friendly for me.  Now, the past 6 years of files
    are in order and the current year is set up for me to manage!  Jodi is patient, kind, keeps me on task and offers suggestions in a
    very encouraging way... she learned my personality, observed my needs first-hand and tailor made a system just for me.

    Now that we have worked together, I am learning to set aside time blocks to organize... it's a paradigm shift in action for me!
    Instead of being so overwhelmed that I don't know where to start, I know exactly where everything belongs!  Woohoo!!

    My husband (very organized) has been really patient but I know my 'stuff' has been out of control... he is amazed at what Jodi and
    I have accomplished together.  When I found a document he was looking for in 10 seconds or less, you could see him beaming from
    ear to ear!  Thank you, Jodi!!"

    Did you know that on average, we wear
   20% of our clothes, 80% of the time?

   It's time to get rid of the clothes that make
   you feel bad, mad, or sad.

   Together, let's create a closet that celebrates
   your body with clothes that 
fit and flatter.

   "I used to think that if I just had a container for each project, I would be
 organized.  I
    had so many bins and bags full of items for projects that I couldn't find anything.  I     
    thought I was being organized, when in fact my numerous 
organizing containers made
    things more cluttered.  Jodi taught me how to 
consolidate and not overcomplicate my
    systems.  In the process of our working
 together, I was able to get rid of projects that
    don't fit my life anymore, freeing 
up space for newer and better ones."

Woman's Closet - After
 
   We love all kinds of closets:



    Nursery rooms


   Teenage wastelands


   Master closets


   Off-season storage


  
   "My shoe collection was out of control and I didn’t even understand how bad it was.  I had shoes all over the house, so when Jodi
    asked me to gather them together, the shoes covered the floor several layers deep!  Jodi helped me set up an area for each type of
    footwear, and each area has a capacity limit.  At the end of the process, I got rid of 1/3 of my shoe collection.  I no longer have a
    shoe heap at the bottom of my closet that fills me with dread whenever I walk in.  Every pair of shoes has
 a home; and to me, that
    is a real breakthrough."

    Streamlining and Scheduling 
   
    Those tedious, time consuming things one never has the energy or motivation to do? 
   They are some of our favorite activities!  Working together with our clients, we:


      Reduce the number of e-mails in their inboxes
      Streamline the contact entries on their smart phones
      Eliminate the need for scores of to-do lists!


    "Jodi is great at offering quick strategies for when she's not there to keep you on track, like the 10-minute timer."

   "Jodi helped me organize my office, including moving furniture, reorganizing my filing system, purging a lot of unneeded items,
    generally clearing my work space, and getting everything organized so it all works better and feels better.  She also gave me some
    good ideas for dealing with my huge flow of email.  Jodi is very good at this, and I would recommend her service."

Overflow of Laundry - Living Room

   Overwhelmed by the mounds of clean or dirty laundry piles at home? 

   Has it taken over your day, night, weekend, or life?
   Do you dread doing the laundry or putting clothes away?

   Learn how to tackle the laundry and turn a mountain into a molehill!              

 
   "My daughter’s closet and dresser drawers were overflowing with clothes.  Laundry piled up because I dreaded trying to put away
    clothes when there was no room.  Jodi helped me set boundaries that made it easy for me to sort and to part with items.  We
    created a bin for each outgrown size.  I can keep a few favorite items and pass them on to my next child.  When the bin filled up,
    we donated the rest of the clothes.  We filled five bags with clothes for donation and the results are miraculous!  Putting away
    laundry is easy now because everything has a home to go to."

    Family Rooms

   It's hard for families to spend time together in a cluttered, disorganized space! 


   Does your gathering area have too many books, video games, toys, movies, or CDs? 


   Together, let's review, organize, and store items in an attractive and accessible way.


   The family that plays together, stays together!


   "I always thought that books were something that you collect until you have a huge library.  Then I realized that my children were
   overwhelmed by too many choices and we could never find the ones that we consider 'special gems'.  After working with Jodi to
   reduce the volume of books, select the favorites and organize them into categories, reading to my children at bedtime 
has become a
   renewed joy.  They are now able to bond with their books and create deeper and more meaningful reading experiences."

    It is amazing how much accumulated
   
    clutter is hiding in most bathrooms.

    It's similar to a clown car at the circus!

    Turn your bathroom into a calm,
    stress-free zone that is just as refreshing
    as that morning cup of coffee.



    No matter what your organizing challenges are, here's what we do:


    We work side-by-side with you to find the personalized organizing style that works the best.  

   We tweak existing systems that were good in theory but just didn't work out.
   We reboot organizing efforts if previous attempts have failed.

Here are some examples of how we get clients organized:

     Referral Program

     When you refer a new client to us, that client receives $50 off of the initial appointment.
     You also receive $50 off of your next scheduled appointment, as our thanks.

     This is the one form of magic that shouldn't be kept secret:

     Tell your friends and family members about the benefits you received from Organizing Magic!


   "Jodi did such an amazing job helping my teenage daughter organize her room, closet, and bathroom.  I would absolutely use her
    again and I highly recommend her.  She taught my daughter organizing techniques and helped her get excited about 
having a clean
    room.  Thanks Jodi!!!"
                                                                                     
                                                                                   Sharon - Chesterfield


   "Just spent the last three hours with Organizing Magic at our house snatching our whole lives together.  It was an eye opener for
    sure but VERY much needed.  It felt SO good!  We bagged up 5 huge trash bags of clothes, toys and games to donate.  Jodi even
    loaded them in my car to ensure they don't just stay in the house.  Jodi was great because she had no emotional 
attachment to
    anything so she could realistically talk to us about will you use this, how will you use it, where is this used, why is 
this out here etc.
    We also went room by room and made detailed plans for our room, kitchen and laundry rooms to be 
organized and maximize the
    space.  Jodi was FANTASTIC and exactly what our house needed to start off 2020!"

                                                                                   Alexis - Maryland Heights


    "We had paper files in 3 or 4 different places in the house.  We thought we were somewhat organized, but soon realized that we were
     not.  Now we know 
where to go to look for any paperwork we need because everything is in a logical place.  Jodi really simplified
     our paperwork and life is much easier 
now!"

   "Before hiring Organizing Magic, I was unsure of how to get started!  Paperwork was my biggest obstacle.  Jodi shared some tips and
    tools that have been very helpful.  Working with Jodi has helped me to develop a plan of action and get the ball 
rolling!  Now that we
    have worked together, I have been motivated and continue to work on purging and organizing my 
home."

   "I couldn’t believe it!  I’d always been a good organizer but my basement and my closets were suddenly overwhelming and no matter
   how many good intentions I had I wasn’t getting the job done.  I called Jodi and we decided to start with the biggest job which was
   the basement playroom.  I think I literally handled thousands of tiny figures and LEGO® by the time we were done.  Jodi helped me
   stay on task but relaxed as we laughed, told each other stories and listened to music.

 
   I realized that what was holding me back wasn’t simply the enormity of the job but how emotional it would be to touch all my
   children’s toys from their younger years and realize they wouldn’t be playing with them again.  Whenever Jodi saw me struggling
   (and often tearing up) she gave me permission to take a pause and consider that if that small plastic shark meant that much to me
   that I could absolutely keep it.  It took several hours but when the job was done I had 8 bags to donate and had reclaimed an entire
   room in the house for my family to utilize again. 

   We continued to other rooms in the house and by the time we were done I felt lighter and happier.  I could find all my things and I
   knew that the surfaces were all clean.  It felt amazing and that I had truly accomplished something important for myself and my
   family.  None of that would’ve been possible without Jodi’s help, professionalism and support.  I know I have the tools now to control
   the chaos and organize a busy full home.  I can’t thank Jodi enough for the journey we took together.  She is fabulous."
 
                                                                                 Maia - Richmond Heights


   "Jodi is great at helping me break down what seems like an impossibly, large task into digestible pieces.  She helps me tackle the
    organizing projects in a strategic and stepwise fashion, so I am able to get the job done.  The concepts are applicable to any
    undertaking.  She is an encouraging and soothing presence, which is especially helpful when I am feeling overwhelmed and stressed
    out about organizing my household."
                                                                                     Philana - Chesterfield

 
   "Jodi just left.  Wow.  A LOT of organizing got done in a few short hours (three).  I am so happy I had her come over.  She helped
    me go through mounds of paperwork that were overwhelming.  With her help, I got through it all.  I will definitely work with her
    again.  It is really a big weight off to know that stuff that seems insurmountable can get done with her help.  She is really laid back
    and is there to help you with what you need.  Highly recommend!!"

                                                                 
                                                                                           Liz - St. Louis


   "In preparation for an office renovation and expansion, I hired Jodi for a series of presentations and organizing sessions with various
    departments in our company.  Jodi and I discussed the challenges my employees were having in terms of space planning, paper

    management and time management.  On three separate occasions, I brought Jodi in to speak to a specific
 department, with a
    presentation that addressed their unique issues.  A few days after each presentation, Jodi came in for 3
 hours to meet with
    individuals or teams to answer organizing questions and offer suggestions on improving efficiency and 
productivity.  We found that
    employees learned how to be more efficient at home and at the office."
