Read What Clients Say About Organizing Express

"Coleman helped me downsize and move from my home to a small assisted living apartment, and I can say without reservation that her services were magnificent! Because my daughter lives out of town, we were grateful that Coleman was able to coordinate all aspects of the move. With a friendly and helpful attitude, Coleman worked efficiently and tirelessly to help make this move ​as easy and comfortable as possible for me."

John Mettler

Resident of Bishop Gadsden Retirement Community

"Coleman is a lifesaver. She knows how to organize and streamline storage space and does so with warmth and delicacy. Nothing was needlessly thrown out and we finally have usable tidy spaces. I know we are saving money in the long run. We won't re-buy things that have been hiding in the back of our closets for ages."​

Rev. Carmen Goetschius

Associate Pastor for Equipping. Mt. Pleasant Presbyterian Church

"Coleman and her processes are incredible. She helped me face my clutter and clear it out by turning overwhelm into sanity step by step. Although we began with only one closet, it morphed into a categorization process that proved so very helpful in living a more organized and clutter-free life! I FEEL so much lighter when I open the closet doors not. I doubt I could do what she did on my own, honestly, I do not have the energy or stamina. With her positive and can-do attitude, she got so much done in just a few short hours. She is a blessing!

Peg Clarkson

PCC, CPCC, CPBS, Optimum Leadership Strategies

"Coleman has helped us implement systems for maintaining order throughout our house, but I am especially grateful for how she interacted with my mother who had recently moved into our house and was reluctant to let me help organize her room and closet. With patience and sensitivity, Coleman was able to help my mother to decide which clothes she no longer needed and how to store them so they would be easy to locate. Recognizing that my mother was not comfortable standing on a stool to hang her clothes, Coleman suggested a carpenter to lower the clothes rod and voila, clutter problem solved!"

Natalie Baker

Mt. Pleasant Resident

"We made a big move from Chicago to Charleston and needed lots of help getting set up in our new home, which had much less storage space. Coleman helped me go through clothes (getting rid of lots of winter clothes!), make many Goodwill trips and organize closets, pantry, and rooms set up after we moved. She was an incredible help in getting us settled in our new home! I'm not sure what I would have done without her - she was fast, efficient, and a pleasure to work with!"

Dee Fortson

Mt. Pleasant Resident

"After living in the same house for 26 years, raising two kids, and running a home business, I was desperate for some help to tackle the accumulation of stuff!  Having Coleman come in to help was such a positive experience.  She understood my desire to find homes for items and not just throw it all away.  Having Coleman work with me got me from procrastination and frustration to a process of making decisions and progress to a lot less stuff!"
