* NEW * Now OfferingVirtual Organizing & Coaching Services
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.
Virtual Organizing & Coaching
This is a great, 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 or evening, as well as sessions that are less than four hours. No need to block off half your day. You also have the ability to work at your own pace in between sessions to complete your "homework." If you are committed to the decluttering process and goal oriented, but in need of accountability, creative solutions, and useful suggestions from a positive coach, then our virtual services would make sense for you!
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 by donate, sell, recycle, trash, keep
- delivery and drop of off items to be recycled and/or donated to the appropriate locations such as Goodwill, 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
"The thought of doing it myself was overwhelming. Patty kept me focused and on track, and most importantly, held me accountable. Couldn't have done it without her." -- C.G.
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.
Online Sales ~ Simplify By Selling
Are you planning on moving or downsizing? If so, you can't always take everything with you, but you know it needs to go. Rather than tossing or donating everything, we will sell your items online for you. We will facilitate and manage the complete online sales process from soup to nuts. This extra income can help defray some of your expensive moving and storage costs. Why pay thousands of dollars to move it, store it, or have it hauled away, when you can convert your items into cash? Whether it's a handful of belongings or an entire house, we can help. Collectively, I have made my clients nearly thirty thousand dollars by selling their unwanted items.
Are you staying put in your current home, but have items that you no longer need or want that are taking up valuable space in your home, attic or garage? You don't need to be planning a move to let Simply Simplify help you lighten your load!
We sell much more than just furniture! Items that you may think would never sell, are often in demand and can find new happy homes. A few non-furniture items include a snowblower, power washer, set of BMW tires, rugs, wall mounted fireplace, dulcimer, tent, foosball table, and so much more.

"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.
