A free consultation is provided to discuss your needs to better understand your organizational goals and how we can help you achieve them. We work with individuals, families, seniors, and everyone in between. We understand that all needs are different so we will develop a plan that fits you best.
Decluttering and Organizing ~ Breathe Easier
Whether it's one room or more, we'll tackle the clutter together. Free of distractions, we'll work side by side staying focused, motivated, and on track. And even have a little fun! Part declutter coach, organizer, cheer leader and a compassionate partner, I will listen and respect both your space and style of working - always within a judgement-free zone. The process of purging means you are making a series of decisions over and over. Do I love it, do I need it, why do I need it, does it fit, is it my style, is it truly serving me any longer, why can't I let go, etc. This can be emotionally exhausting and difficult to accomplish by yourself. Working together as a team will accelerate that decision-making process and make the sorting process faster and easier. And you always have the final say in what to keep or what to let go!
Once the decluttering process is complete, we will then work on organizing what remains to maximize your space and increase efficiencies.
This service includes:
- sorting items to donate, sell, recycle, trash, keep
- delivery and drop of off items to be recycled and/or donated to the appropriate locations such as local donation centers, food pantries, and other non-profit organizations in need
- coordinating any pick-ups of donations as needed
- organizing items that you choose to remain in your space in an efficient manner
In keeping with our philosophy of being kind to the environment, we place a high priority on recycling and re-purposing as much as possible, and do our best to minimize waste so it doesn't end up in a landfill.
Ongoing Maintenance is critical for keeping the clutter and the resulting feelings of overwhelm at bay.
We offer weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly regularly scheduled sessions to help you maintain your new found sense of order and to keep you organized.
"The thought of doing it myself was overwhelming. Patty kept me focused and on track, and more importantly, held me accountable. Couldn't have done it without her." -- C.G.
Online Sales Of Your Unwanted Belongings &
Online Auctions/Estate Sales ~ Simplify By Selling Your Stuff
Are you planning on moving or downsizing? If so, you can't always take everything with you, but you know it needs to go.
Are you tasked with clearing out the house of a deceased loved one or settling an estate? If so, this is a daunting task and nobody can do it alone.
Are you staying put in your current home? If so, do you have too much stuff that you no longer need or want that is taking up valuable space in your garage, attic or maybe even every room? You don't need to be planning a move to let Simply Simplify help you lighten your load. Hidden in all that clutter, could very well be thousands of dollars!
Rather than toss, donate or give away everything, we will sell your items online for you. We offer two different options.
1. Selling your items via social media sites such as online Marketplace, yard sale sites and Craigslist.
2. Selling your items via an online auction/estate sale.
Simply Simplify will facilitate and manage the complete online process from soup to nuts. We always do a free consultation to assess your items to determine what the best option would be for you and how we can maximize revenue. This extra income can help defray some of your expensive moving, storage and clean out costs. Why pay thousands of dollars to move it, store it, or have it hauled away, when we can convert your items into cash? After all, one person's clutter is another person's treasure. Whether it's new furniture, old vintage items, household and garden items, tools, unique collectibles, you name it - our buyers are thrilled to discover perfectly good items with lots of life left in them!

When I was growing up, my Mom always told me to waste not, want not. "Use it up. Wear it out. Don't throw it out," she'd say. She was my inspiration at an early age to be conscious of unnecessary waste, a lesson that has not been forgotten to this day.
"My condo sold very quickly, and I didn't have time to figure out and manage online selling. My realtor recommended Simply Simplify. Patty was fabulous, and has quite a following. I couldn't believe how quickly things disappeared! If you need to get rid of it, Patty's your gal!! -- Sherry F.

Virtual Coaching and Organizing
This is a great and convenient option for those who may have limited time to work together in person, or who may live out of the area, but still have the need for supportive guidance in tackling the clutter. We will work with you wherever you are located, whether in state or out. Remote sessions will be held via FaceTime or Zoom.
Benefits include more flexible scheduling, including day, evening, or weekends. You also have the ability to work at your own pace in between sessions to complete your "homework."
