Professional Organizing, Unpacking, and Virtual Organizing
"Life Organized with Michelle has been one of the most stress relieving experiences as I make my home my own. She patiently listened to my concerns and needs as she took notes & measurements. Within a short time she offered her solutions, list of options and I was on my way to getting my pantry organized. She brings a wealth of knowledge to the table."

“Had Michelle do a virtual organize on my linen closet. It was amazing. Michelle is amazing! She listens to what you want and need."
~ Monica K., Virtual Organizing
“Michelle organized my kitchen virtually. And I wasn’t sure how that was going to work out being virtual. But I woke up today so at peace. I unloaded the dishwasher with ease, no cramming things in cupboard or knocking over items to place others away. She carefully crafted a plan to place items based on my daily habits. It was so joyous to wake up and feel peaceful in my kitchen. I can’t recommend her enough. If you are on the fence about whether to let her help you. As someone that really values peace and finds it priceless I highly suggest you give it a try. You won’t regret it. Thanks again Michelle for making my daily world an easier place to be. Especially since I work from home so I spend a lot of time in my kitchen. I so appreciate the work you do!”

"I worked with Michelle to tackle my hallway linen closet and *BONUS* we did the whole thing virtually! (I'm in Ohio and she's in North Carolina) I told her what I wanted to use the closet for, she came up with the organizing strategy and we were able to reuse baskets and containers that I already had in the house! She was online with me during the whole sorting process and was great in helping me make decisions! I will definitely use her again soon!"
~ Amanda B., Virtual Organizing
"I LOVE Life Organized With Michelle! We had fun (if that's possible) organizing my garage.
For a couple of years when I thought about doing it myself, I felt so overwhelmed. Where do I begin? A big project for me. I didn't want to deal with it. I met Michelle at the Wave Market at Brunswick Beer & Cider. She scheduled an appointment to take a look at the project and give me ideas and pricing. I hired her! What a relief! Its done! I couldn't have done it without her. Thank you Michelle!"

"My husband and I are long-time accumulators. While being in academia for some 30 years and running a small antique business, we have accumulated a large numbers of items. Unfortunately, since retirement, we have become clutterers.
In dire need of a professional organizer, we interviewed several, and decided to go with Life Organized With Michelle. We are very glad that we did. She knows her business and is very good at it. Some examples of her skills: As expected, she makes excellent suggestions of how we can organize ourselves and how we should decide what to keep and what to let go of. Further, she helps in deciding where those in the "let go" category should go and then takes them there. But, of importance to us, she doesn't push us into getting rid of things we really want to keep.
Additionally, her interpersonal skills are first rate and she appears unflappable. We will miss her when the three of us have accomplished our decluttering project. That's why she has become a life-long member of our family."

"Excellent experience working with Michelle! I would highly recommend her as the services she provided are totally worth the expense. My room was transformed in a matter of a few hours and the relief I felt from decluttering and organizing was priceless."

"I knew it was time to call a professional when I didn't want to go into my house - I preferred sitting in my car in my driveway instead. A senior agency gave me Michelle's number. I called, and my life is now peaceful. Michelle has a gift for organizing - a natural flow, love, insight. There was no judgment, even though I was embarrassed by how far I'd let the clutter take over. Michelle's light hearted approach and compassion made our sessions delightful and productive. Michelle helped in my decisions of what to keep and what to release, keeping the end goal in focus. I now enjoy completion of that goal, a place for everything, my favorite things visible, and room for life's flow. Dusting is enjoyable! Staying on top of tidying up is immediately rewarding. I now love my digs! Michelle is so often on my gratitude list - her kind and efficient work style has changed my life. Her presence in my life and my home felt like a divine blessing. I am so grateful for Michelle and my functioning home!"

"Had Michelle organize my spare room into a craft room. It is a pleasure to work in my craft room now. I know what I have now before I start a project. Thanks Michelle!!! You are great. Would use her service again."

"I absolutely love it! It’s wonderful! The kids are keeping things where they go!! Everything is amazing and for the most part they (family) all comply!"

"Oh.my.gosh. So professional. So good. She is efficient and wonderful at what she does. We worked on two trouble areas that I have never been able to tame on my own. I have three kids under 6 and I never have had time to just stop and rethink my spaces and make them work for us. Michelle, from your organized life, prepared for each session and even gave me some items to have ready so we could make the most of our time. I am so greatful for spending time investing in the areas I spend the most time in. I could not recommend her enough!"
~ Cara R.
"Highly recommend! Michelle helped me to organize my pantry and it was very efficient and productive in 3 hrs. I definitely will work with her again!"

"Working with Michelle was such a great experience! She’s got skills! I live on the east coast and need to get my mother’s house in Ohio cleared out and on the market quickly after her move to assisted living. Not only did Michelle have practical, doable solutions for organizing the space quickly, but she also possessed a real sensitivity for the psychology behind my situation and how to tackle it. She just instinctively knew the perfect mix of hand-holding, butt-kicking, and plastic storage containers that I needed. :-) She got right to it. She had so many easy-to-implement solutions the first day, and then returned for Day #2 clearly having thought about what we’d accomplished the day before and how to be most productive moving forward. After literally months of stalled progress on my own and mounting stress, one weekend with Michelle and I feel back on-track and actually hopeful again about the project. Money well spent on Michelle’s professional services: priceless!! Thank you, so much!!"

"Very professional and friendly. She had a lot of great ideas and was fun to work with! I’m super pleased with my organization results and would totally use her again!"

"I had the opportunity to work with Michelle on my walk-in-closet. At the time I was a single mom, college student and working full-time. To say I was busy was an understatement. Everything that was for me specifically was sacrificed to last on this list. Very last on that list was my closet. It was a chaotic disaster to say the very least. I asked Michelle to come take a look and tell me if she could help my situation. When she came for the consultation she was punctual and professional. She even took the time to greet my pets and didn’t mind them being around during our process. I was anxious and embarrassed to show her my closet, but she was completely non-judge mental and very comfortable to talk to about the project. She was confident she could help me get my closet organized so that it would make my time more efficient in getting ready, finding things and putting things away. She asked me some questions to determine what my priorities were and customized the functionality of the space just for me and my needs. She understood my time was spread thin so she didn’t take too long to get through the initial preference questions before going to work while I went on making dinner, laundry and homework. Only a few times did she need to ask me to make a decision or answer a question. In no time at all my closet was beautifully organized. I couldn’t believe my eyes. I had no idea it could be so crisp and clean with all I had to keep in it. I did purge a few things but mostly I realized I just didn’t know the most efficient way to use the space. After living with the changes Michelle made I didn’t change a thing. It saved me so much time getting ready and I found things I needed so much easier. I also wasn’t afraid for anyone to see my closet to get to the extra bathroom. No words for the relief Michelle and her abilities provided me. I appreciated her so much and will use her services again in the future. She coordinated everything from the time to meet and work with the project. I really didn’t have to do much except answer a few questions. We made a plan together and she executed it efficiently. I even learned some valuable things I continue to use when I organize my closet. Michelle is great and I trust her and her services. I would recommend her to anyone that I thought could benefit from her expertise."
