“I’m so grateful to have Jen’s organization expertise, business & parenting advice, and product recommendations. Working with her has been life-changing and the positive effects have a trickle effect into many areas of life, not just organization. We have monthly sessions to get my home in order and she’s provided me with tools I can do the work on my own in between too! My family also loves the results and having a home in order takes many items off my own to-do list since it’s easier for others to be independent. Thanks for all of your help, Jen!” (Google and Facebook Review – Client)
“JB Organizing has helped our family function more simply and smoothly and helped us deal with the daily clutter and paper that comes with being a family. And it is still working easily after a year!”
“Jennifer has a rare ability to understand the psychology of stuff and helped me overcome the emotional attachment I had to some things, too. My grandmother grew up during the Great Depression, so I always swore it was in my genes to “save everything.” Jennifer helped me prioritize and pare down, so much so that my life and opportunities have blossomed in so many ways. I firmly believe it is because I am not wasting so much energy and time on clutter and too much stuff, in my home and in my head. Thank you, Jennifer!”
“Jennifer Barnes is not only an excellent professional organizer, because she makes organizing fun, but she changed my life! I was very overwhelmed by stuff, especially by papers and information coming from my child’s school and elsewhere. She gave our family an easy, straightforward system to use. Her countless tips and ideas have helped me in so many ways.”
What Does a Professional Organizer Do?
At JB Organizing a Professional Organizer aids people in bringing order to their home, life, office and future by providing a fresh outside perspective on the given space and situation, by designing systems and processes using organizing principles; by teaching clients specific organizing skills, and by providing motivation to complete a given project.
Our Professional Organizers also speak to various groups throughout the country; educating the public on organizing solutions and the resulting benefits.
Why Hire a Professional Organizer? Can't I just do it myself?
Can a person organize a space by themselves? Yes, but sometimes it helps to have an outside perspective. We are often too close to our space, our things, and our lives to see clearly what isn’t going smoothly and how we should fix it. We are often also very overwhelmed and struggle to find the motivation to attempt any solution we might have found. A Professional Organizer provides the fresh outside perspective, specific plan for a given area, necessary instruction for organizing, and motivation to get it done! Similarly….Consider a Personal Trainer….People can exercise and become physically fit on their own; but will hire a Personal Trainer to give them the necessary plan, instruction, and motivation. A Professional Organizer acts in a similar manner in terms of helping you to make your home, office and life as orderly and “fit” as possible.
