Thank you again. I don’t know how I could have ever done this clean-out without you. Many, many thanks – I have been singing your praises as I have told everyone in my life of my adventure!!!
– Susan L. Indian Head Park, I’ll.
I was grateful this week for the crate of old tax returns that you organized when you helped me move from the house I lived in for 23 years. It was so easy and took just a minute to locate the 2013 return when I needed it! Without that crate I would have been searching for hours.

Thank you again, Barbara, for all your hard work last week. You have so much energy (and strength!), and to do this for two or more appointments a day must be exhausting! I so enjoy opening the two closets you organized for us, and I am so happy with the clean, open, uncluttered look of each one!

I just wanted to take a moment to let you know what an impact your presentation had on me. I went into the meeting thinking that even though I have clutter everywhere in my life at the moment, it wasn’t really something I could do much about, or even wanted to. I was married about a year and a half ago and since the wedding moved out of my parents’ house and into my husband’s. On account of this my room at my parents’ house still looked very much like it did just before the wedding — which is to say it looked like a bomb went off in it and a huge mess! Since I visit my parents quite frequently it was a constant stress on me so see everything like that. After your presentation I went over to my parents’ house that same weekend and did a massive clean, at least of all the surface areas which was the first priority. My next goal will be to start cleaning out drawers, bookshelves, closets, etc. It’s a lifetime worth of “stuff” and a perfect example of things that I own but never use — because I really don’t even have access to any of it most days of the week. So I know I need to par down and now feel as if I am mentally ready to let go. Thank you so much for giving me the figurative kick in the butt I needed in order to take steps to start getting my life in order!

“My home was full of STUFF that was all over the place because I couldn’t decide where it should go. It had become completely overwhelming and the efforts I’d made on my own were getting me nowhere. Working with Barbara is like having a good friend over to help. Barbara is helpful, nonjudgmental, enthusiastically encouraging, and has a knack for getting my mind to think about how to use organizing as a way to make my life easier, rather than having order imposed on me. Having a home for all of my stuff makes it much simpler and more motivating to put things away so messes don’t pile up and linger for days (or weeks, months, years…). Hiring the right organizer has been a wonderful investment in the quality of my life.”

“It was wonderful to work with Barbara Berman; she is a real pro! After assessing my home office, she made great suggestions that transformed my workspace from a crowded room into a welcoming, functioning office in which I now love to work. Not only did she make recommendations, she also helped me pack and clear away the clutter…and with a smile on her face the entire time!”
