Tame the Paper Piles
You are drowning in paper, and it just keeps coming. The reality is, you need to keep less than you think. There is an easy way to store the papers that matter, toss what doesn’t, and prevent the piles from coming back. Let us teach you how.
One Chic Mama
You are ready to ditch the sweats, but your closet is a mess. You’re fabulous at heart, but you’re not quite sure how to polish your look after baby. Together with stylist Michelle Magee Elfvin, owner of ShopMagStyle.com,, we will analyze your current wardrobe and the space it occupies. Michelle will help you cull through what works and what doesn’t to add depth to your personal style. Sarah will execute your new style needs with a customized organizing plan. Eliminate stress. Excuse clutter. Release the inner hot Mama.
Kid Clutter, Contained
You are often amazed at the amount of stuff your little ones seem to generate. Between the artwork, the books, the Legos, the costumes, and the outgrown clothes, you can’t help but feel like its their house and you are just living in it. Let us create solutions for your family that will foster your children’s creativity while keeping your home clutter-free.
Make Room for Baby
Your condo is perfectly sized for two (or three). With one more, it’s gonna be tight. Perhaps you are overwhelmed by all the baby gear or simply are unsure what to do with the home office equipment currently in the extra bedroom. Adjusting to parenthood is difficult enough, let us help you sift through the choices to create a space perfect for your newest addition.
So Many Masterpieces
You love fostering your child’s artistic side. Since she is so prolific, however, her creations quickly add to the clutter. Let Less is More and design boutique Relative Marmalade help you find order and beauty in the chaos. After we design a system for organizing your child’s art, Relative Marmalade will create a Sustainable Portrait based on one piece your child has made. (The package also includes a 20% discount on artwork digitizing services and a 10% discount on a future organizing session.)
Don’t Lift a Finger
Your weekdays are busy. Super busy. The only thing that seems more painful than the disorganization itself is the thought of spending your entire weekend attempting to make sense of it all. Let us take care of the messy stuff, so you can come home from work to a beautifully organized space- all without having to lift a finger.
Room to Breathe
Your bedroom closet is full. Your coat closet is full. You have not seen your favorite pair of boots in weeks and in order to open the washing machine you need to move the extra laundry basket, a super mega-sized pack of toilet paper, and an old box of books. Living in your home should not be this frustrating. Let us help you reclaim space and transform your household.
The Closet Makeover
Getting dressed each day should be effortless. No matter what the occasion, you need to be able to access your entire wardrobe with ease. Let us help you cull through what works and what doesn’t, de-clutter your space, and simplify your routine.
All Those Photos
You love capturing funny expressions, exotic vacation destinations, or even life’s mundane moments on camera. Taking pictures is so easy. Finding them when you want them is what gets tricky. Having spent 15 years as a curator, Sarah knows a thing or two about properly organizing, displaying, and archiving special objects. Let her show you just how amazing your photographs can look.
The Seasonal Check-in (Maintenance Plan)
You’ve purged, sorted, and containerized. Your closet has become a sanctuary. Then, the temperature fluctuates 50 degrees overnight and swapping out your seasonal gear seems like a daunting task. A change in seasons is a great excuse to de-clutter. Let us make this organizing process hassle-free. (This service features two visits per year.)
Just the Plan
You are fairly organized. You want your systems to be better but just can’t figure out how to get there. Or, you just moved and need some guidance for making the most of your new space. Let us help you create a new vision. We design the plan, you implement it on your own. (A great budget option.)
The Big Move
Listing your home and moving to a new one can be an overwhelming process. Let us help you ease the burden. Save money and help speed the sales of your house with pre-sales de-cluttering and basic staging. Make the most of your new home with unpacking, organizing, and space planning services.
