Picture Perfect Organizing!

I had the privilege of helping my fantastic photographer friend Virginia Payne organize her home office this summer. It was such a fun project (I think all organizing projects are fun!) and I was so excited when she offered to take the "after" pictures with her professional camera which, by the way, turned out so much better than the ones I took on my little red Nikon! To see a little bit of both our work check out this posting on her professional blog and for more information about Virginia Photography check out her website VirginiaPaynePhotography.com. She takes amazing photographs and is such a wonderful person to work with.


Take a look at some of my organizing success! (Photos and text used with permission.)

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
