From Our Clients

It’s amazing. Better than I ever could have imagined!

Effy helped me at a time when I was feeling very overwhelmed about the amount of stuff I had accumulated in my small condo. We tackled what was bothering me the most – my closet. Effy helped me sort through my things and then organized what was left in a way that made it way easier for me to find all my pieces. She also made suggestions that would give my space a better flow. She even offered to take what I discarded to a donation place. Very friendly and personable she really listens to what you say to ascertain what you need. Would hire her again in a heartbeat.

I just went back down to my basement to have a look. Though I was just down there not long ago with you, I just stood there and took it all in. I felt like I could breathe again for the first time in a long time.  I know you do what you do because you are great at it and because you love it, but I’m not sure you could ever fully understand what it’s doing for me.  My home. My family. My marriage.  When you’re in the thick of things, curveballs thrown from every direction, clutter and stuff and mess accumulates!!  It’s completely overwhelming.  Your service is exactly what I needed. And you are exactly who I needed to go through this with.  You are one of a kind

Effy is a master at clearing out clutter and organizing a home! She has a great sense of how to purge and organize for everyday living. She is a delight to work with – high energy with a good balance of hustle and humour. She thoughtfully takes away stuff you don’t need and finds a home for it with people that can use it and donates to good causes. The process was fun and the outcome rewarding and totally liberating!

Heather Fraser

It’s not easy admitting that you have flaws with your home. The pandemic has brought out the absolute worst in not parting with things. Most places even shut down donations for months. So many people are living, working and entertaining their children in their homes 24/7. By the time my kids leave for the weekend, I’m so tired that I just want to relax. Organize That saved me today. She understood that being a single mom isn’t easy. Parting with things seems even harder because I’m so closely tied to my kids in certain stages. Effy came here with an open heart and zero judgement and turned my closets into a hotel in one day. Thank you for all your passion, empathy and tips to restore a space that feels more like my own! I cannot wait for the boys see their rooms. I highly recommend everyone takes one day and just have Organize That enter their home and work with her to restore your home! I almost cancelled due to fear and today changed me in a way that I cannot even explain. I will be forever thankful for the help.
