"Norganizers Anonymous"

If you love to organize then you have come to the right place! Organizing is my passion...okay so it's my obsession! So much so that a few years ago my DH cleverly suggested that I name any future organizing business "Norganizers Anonymous". I don't know why he felt the need to add the N to Organizers but I guess that was all part of the joke!

Although I have not developed a 12-step program for those obsessed with organizing, I have since started my own organizing business called Busy Bee Organized. In addition to running my organizing business (which has been the best career decision of my life), I love to spend my free time organizing and reorganizing just about anything I can get my hands on. It's my career and my hobby. My favorite things to organize are closets...closets have so much potential! I also love problem-solving and looking for new, fresh ways to approach an organizing dilemma.

So, if you are a fellow professional organizer, you love (or even like) to organize or if you are just looking for some tips, ideas or some great organizing tools and supplies, I would love to share ideas. Let the organizing begin!

Wow, what a great blog. I can also attest to Melissa's organizing prowess. And as her DH, she is correct in saying I don't have to ask, "where is the...?" In fact, my home office gets frequent visits from the organizing fairy.

Thanks Brad! I do love visiting Brad's office...as long as he doesn't falsely accuse me of "misplacing" things!

How fun!! Thanks for inviting me to your blog! Do you think you'll go public with it some day? (for marketing etc?) It's really really well done!

Yes, I hope so. I'm kind of using it as a spring board to my website. I would like to try it out on my friends and family (and those who follow my organizing career) and then maybe move to my clients and then to a website/public forum. Baby steps! Thanks for the complement. I think it turned out pretty cool. I have some big plans for it at least!

BLOG BLOG BLOG!! Is that all anyone is doing lately?? Hey how do I get a cute picture next to my comments??? Looks good though, seriously. Love you long time.

(M has probably told you how to do this already on the phone... but just incase... you go into "edit profile" and scroll down to "photo url" and then paste a web address in there) (to find a list of photo web addresses to paste in I went to images.google.com, then searched for "goose", clicked the image I liked and then clicked "see full sized image" and copied that web address and pasted it into as my photo url)

That's what I did too, Tiff. Thanks for explaining it so well, Shelese. It would have taken me a lot longer I'm sure!:)

Client Feedback

I work out of a home office without any administrative support. I worked with Melissa to organize both my personal and professional effects as I prepared to relocate. I wish I had done it years ago. While organizing my office and paperwork Melissa identified my natural tendencies and created an organizational structure that was easy for me to maintain. When I began looking for a personal organizer, I mostly wanted someone else to come in and take care of the mess I had allowed to build up over the years. Working with an “uninterested” party during the purging process helped me lighten my load considerably. During the process Melissa provided me with simple intuitive skills that have not only allowed me to maintain my newly found order but help friends and family organize as well. I can honestly say hiring Melissa is one of the best things I have ever done for myself. Kelsi Reeves
