Organizing Assistance
"I never worked with an organizer before and it helped to get the momentum going to clear the clutter."
~Barb B. 

"Organizing with Mellisa has had a profound effect on my life.  She's helped me to eliminate clutter and better understand true priorities.  Mellisa points out the key things to focus on in life.  In the process we have worked to develop a bill paying system, simplify paperwork and understand the long term effects of letting paperwork accumulate without being tackled immediately. It's also now clear that if you have a storage facility sitting untouched for a long period of time, it's time to consider how valuable those items truly are to you."
~Rich D.

"Being a business owner, I sometimes find myself working harder, and not smarter. Originally, I had Mellisa come in to set up my business systems, and found her to be very easy to work with, and eager to help. Mellisa was always willing to tackle anything I asked, and found her to be invaluable to me, especially as business got busier. I decided to purchase a package rate , and proceeded to make a list of things that have lingered for months.  She has covered a lot of ground for me on projects, from converting old slides to cds, organizing my manuals, cleaning and organizing my kitchen, programming my remote controls, and the list goes on and on.  She is taking care of all the things that I should be getting to, but never can find the time. With her help, I don’t  feel  so overwhelmed anymore, and find I have time to enjoy life more. I make a list, call Mellisa, and I know help is on the way. Thanks again Mellisa!"

“Mellisa is a Godsend, I often refer to her as an angel! Her upbeat, non-threatening approach to organizing my MOUNTAINS of 'stuff' truly put me at ease. She helped clean out the clutter and pack for my move with such a calm demeanor it was truly a pleasure.  She also helped me tag items for my yard sale which was so intuitive for her and definitely rewarding for me. Without her help, I would have been overwhelmed.  I have highly recommend her to my friends and will look to her services in assisting me with my time management skills."
"Mellisa worked with me on a basement organization project in 2010.  She was extremely professional and detailed in her assessment of my basement.  She wrote up and documented three different project possibilities, the costs associated with each one; which ultimately gave me flexibility in my budget and overall organizational style and needs. After the basement storage units were installed, Mellisa and I worked together to organize, label, and arrange bins. This process has really helped me to stay organized and save time getting items on an as needed basis.  I would highly recommend Mellisa to others, as she is talented, experienced, and has a great eye for detail and organization."
~Bev K 
"I've hired Mellisa on more than one occasion for help with various organization projects around the house (filing, storage closets, etc.). She was always on time, efficient and extremely focused on getting the job done to my satisfaction. I also find her to be extremely trustworthy with the handling of sensitive documents. I would definitely hire her again and recommend her to my friends."
