Home Organizing

The Process

Following the KonMari Method®, Emily will help you determine what items you love, need and use in your house so that you can more easily say farewell to the rest. Every item you keep will have a designated home – a place you know where to put it and where to find it. We will create systems and storage solutions to make your items accessible and your space functional.

Emily can work beside you throughout the process, organize everything for you, or design a plan for you to work at your own pace.

In the spirit of creating streamlined and organized systems, the booking process is as easy as 1, 2, 3:
