before and after pictures of a messy cupboard

How does your clutter make you feel?

You want so badly to get organized. To host book club this month. To have family celebrations at your home. To open the garage door without feeling like the whole street is judging you.

“Every time the doorbell rings or my friends want to come over, I feel that lurch in the pit of my stomach. I just dread what they’re thinking about the way my house looks.”  — Margaret B., Broomfield

But there’s stuff everywhere and you don’t know where to begin. You start to doubt yourself — you kept all this stuff for a reason, perhaps you should still hold onto it. Maybe it’s just a matter of putting it in the right containers. You start cramming things in plastic totes again, convinced that you’re doomed to live forever in confusion and chaos.

I can help. I’ll break it down into manageable parts. Working side-by-side with you, I’ll keep you on track and we’ll create a stress-free home you’ll be proud to have anyone see.

“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!” Sarah C., Boulder

When you’re overwhelmed, it’s easier to put things off for another day

“The cupboards are a mess. I’ll get groceries tomorrow.” Let’s just eat out. Again. 

It’s how we try to cope when things are a mess and we don’t know where to start

I’ll help you find what you love, want and need and let the rest go.

Clutter is expensive

Clients tell me they save astonishing amounts of money now they’re not buying duplicates of things they can’t find, shopping as a distraction from the mess, or paying for storage.

If you have a storage unit (maybe you have more than one?) in Boulder County or Longmont, you’ll pay at least $250 a month to warehouse your stuff. That’s $3,000 a year. $15,000 for five years. And all you get for that price is to avoid making decisions about your stuff. I can help you figure out what can go, what you still need and where we’re going to put it all.

Pricing: $225 per 3 hour session 

Regular sessions will give you the structure and expert guidance you need to accomplish your goals. Three hours is just the right amount of time to see progress without getting burnt out. Watch your momentum grow as we conquer the clutter!

When it’s likely that significantly more than 12 sessions will be needed, I offer a sliding scale program. If you’re interested in this option, let’s discuss it at your free consultation.

Joyful Surroundings LLC’s guarantee: By the time we’re done, you’ll be able to find anything you own within five minutes, including paperwork.

Shouldn’t I be able to do this myself?

If you’re Superwoman, sure. But none of us are going to be good at everything. You have a ton of skills, and perhaps figuring out how to declutter and get organized are hard for you. That’s okay! If you’re ready to accept help and support with this, that just frees up your time and energy for all those things you do really well.

This can be tough, emotional work. You want someone there to guide you through the process. Someone who knows how to keep you on task and motivated, who knows how to move you from chaos to order without getting discouraged or distracted.

I know how to encourage you and keep you moving towards your goals. I’m committed to your process. I know you can do it and I’ll hold that vision for you until you can hold it for yourself.
