Jane and her team did a terrific job of triage: organizing, hand-holding and packing for our big downsizing move.  Although we were just moving within Chicago, things were so well wrapped and labeled I think we could have shipped the boxes to anywhere in Europe and found everything perfectly intact.  With her assistance, we were able to feel comfortable with everything.

Top 10 Tips from One of Chicago’s Best Professional Organizers

  1. Plan time for organizing, even 15 minutes a day can help you reach your goal.

  2. Keep only what you use or love.

  3. Develop good habits, put things away daily.

  4. Eliminate whatever you can from coming into your space, don’t let junk mail into your home.

  8. Keep your photos together in proper containers, where you can find them easily.
