Overwhelmed by Clutter?

Lucy brings tons of creativity to her work, and sees things in a way I couldn’t have imagined initially.  Everything she touches feels fresher and brighter.  I’m so grateful to work with her.”

If your attempts to deal with clutter and get organized have been overwhelming and frustrating, let Joyful Surroundings help you take care of this problem so you can enjoy the clear, organized home you deserve.

Without systems that work for you, no one knows where anything is. The dining room table’s covered in junk, your keys are hiding and your kids apparently have 96 pairs of shoes, most of them scattered across the front hallway.

I’m Here to Help You Get Free

Other organizers will sell you a new closet. They’ll haul boxes for you and pick up your dry cleaning. My practice is focused on supporting you to declutter and organize.

No upselling products, no paying organizer rates for personal assistant chores. My job is to work with you to conquer the clutter so you can enjoy your space again. My system prioritizes what matters specifically to you, what space you have to work with, and what you want to do with your time on this planet.


If you have trouble letting go of sentimental items and feel anxious about where to start, you’ve come to the right place. I love working with people who are overwhelmed by their clutter.

“Lucy helped me let go of a ton of things I never imagined I could say “goodbye” to, and she did it in such a nice gentle way it wasn’t overwhelming at all!”

Kendra N., Longmont


I charge $85 an hour. Organizing sessions are three hours long and customized packages are available for longer term projects.

By the time we’re finished, you’ll be able to find anything you own within five minutes.

Let’s Work Together

Lucy Kelly, Professional Organizer

While the pandemic continues, I’m offering low-contact Pandemic Paperwork Specials. Even people who don’t usually struggle with organization have a hard time with paper. For people who get overwhelmed when they try to organize, paperwork is a nightmare. Let me make dealing with it easier for you.

Schedule a Consultation Now

I know that once we can all meet again safely, I’ll be booked up far out. There’s a pent-up demand for organizing, fueled by the realities of staying at home surrounded by all your stuff. Don’t miss your chance to be first in line for the post-COVID joy that decluttering and organizing your space will bring you!

I’ll ask you to tell me your clutter story and discuss your goals with me. Who’s pushing you to contact me? How invested are you in the process? What does organized look and feel like for you? Have you tried other organizers before and how did that go?

Virtual Organizing? Let’s Wait A Little Longer

The connection that comes from working side by side with someone who can hold your emotions and keep the space safe for you to process your feelings about your things isn’t something that passes through the screen.

Virtual organizing is a lot of work for you. When you organize virtually, guess who does all the heavy lifting? You do. Guess who corrals the donations and find somewhere that’ll accept them? You again. Guess who has to put everything back together after the session? Still you. All the extra details a professional organizer handles to make everything as easy and painless as possible for you now fall squarely on your shoulders.

I don’t want that for you. The clutter’s been there for long enough, it can wait a little longer until we can safely work together in person. While we wait, let’s take care of your paperwork!

“I especially appreciated how Lucy did not judge or make us embarrassed about anything. It was really a pleasure to organize, something I would have thought impossible before!”
