  "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."

Mail and Paper Management
 
  Tired of drowning in mail and other            paperwork that invades your home daily?     
  We work with clients to rid that paper        mountain currently living:

  On the dining room table

  On the kitchen counter

  In random bags and boxes stashed            throughout the house!

 
  "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!!"

   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!"

   Having an Organized Kitchen:

   Prevents duplicate purchases

   Reduces the chance of wasting food

   Increases the desire to prepare meals at
   home

   Bring your family closer together while       
   saving money and calories!


   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!!"

   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."

 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."

      Reduce the number of e-mails in their inboxes

      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."

  Let's create:

  "Before hiring Jodi, paperwork had overtaken the floor and surface areas of my home office.  After spending one session               working on it together, I was able to use the tools and tips Jodi suggested and get all of my paperwork organized and put             away!  My anxiety about having a messy office is gone.  I really appreciate Jodi's help and encouragement.  She inspired me,       and I can't stop telling people about her!"

Jodi is very good at this, and I would recommend her service."

Overflow of Laundry - Living Room
 
                                  Laundry Rooms

    
   Overwhelmed by the mounds of clean and dirty laundry piles     in your home? 


   Has it taken over your day, night, weekend, or life? 


   Do you dread doing the laundry or putting clothes away?


   Let us show you how to tackle the laundry and turn that           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.


  "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."
