Moving... Dawn M, August, 2017
"Moving out of state after being in our home for 18 years was extremely stressful & I was overwhelmed to say the least. When Maryanne Bryant showed up at my door, she immediately put my "frenzied" mind at ease. Her calm yet motivated demeanor gave me much assurance that she was the one for the job at hand. Her organizational & packing skills were exceptional. She asked me a few questions to get my thoughts on what I wanted to save, sell, donate or ditch. I love how she got right to the task she came to do; She explained how I could better pack, tape and label. If left up to me it may have been a possible disaster come the time of the move. By the time she left I had my living room back in order with many bins & boxes ready to go. She was assertive, extremely organized & ever so kind. I would highly recommend her services for anyone moving or anyone looking to organize their home, regardless of the time spent there & size of the job you may need completed."

"As a professional organizer, I keep my clients laser focused on their daily tasks. The saying “physician heal thyself” was very appropriate when my life began to become complicated. Setting my own schedule, I began to notice that important follow-ups were not being accomplished in a timely manner. I knew I needed accountability and someone that had strong administration and organizing skills. Enter Mary Ann.
Having Mary Ann with me allowed my mind to stay on task and not meander onto other chores. My strengths lie in strategizing but I find breaking my strategies into manageable tasks frustrating. That is Mary Ann’s gift. She was able to see my big picture and then help me break down the goals into manageable tasks. Mary Ann’s calm manner and matter of fact approach was a perfect compliment to my working style. Mary Ann brings not only years of administration experience, but the peace that her personality brings is an immeasurable joy.
I will continue to call Mary Ann when my workload becomes insurmountable. I know that I am in good hands with her guiding my steps and I can highly recommend her for not only her administration organizing skills but in any area of organizing you may be seeking."

"I am married 36 years and for at least 23 of those years, my husband has asked me to clean up my "craftroom" in the basement that was basically unusable. I was busy raising my children and working. I would periodically try my best to organize, throw or donate to no avail. I was overwhelmed. When Mary Ann & I reconnected, she had just begun her business. I hired her on the spot! Our first meeting we surveyed my space, prioritized my goals and dug in. Over the next few weeks, we made amazing headway sorting, clearing, decluttering, organizing. I was amazed at how easy it was with someone there to let go of things and how free I was becoming! Currently my craftroom is a real workable, functioning room with craft tables, chairs, & carpet! It looks and feels wonderful! I am able to craft again in my new stress free zone!
All this organzing and decluttering spilled over to my family. They began to organize themselves. My husband totally redid our garage after 29 years. I now have an office space where there was an extra bedroom as well. I love the way I feel with things organized and clean. It is a daily job but so worth it. Thank you Mary Ann for all your expert advice, your gentle voice letting me come to my own decisions and never judging. This has been a life changing experience for me."
Warehouse overhaul - “The new organization is working GREAT!” Frank, January, 2018
Before Mary Ann came in, everything was a complete mess, things got lost and I often felt overwhelmed looking at random piles everywhere. I knew I needed to get help but I was always “too busy” to do anything about it, which in hindsight, is such a shame since it has freed up so much of my time having things organized properly. Working with Mary Ann was great. We began with a 1 hour consultation and then she gave me her assessment and ideas. I love how it was "drawn" out first and conceptualized. I love how we worked together to figure this out and drew on both our strengths. Overall great experience!!!! We created a workflow, making EVERY system in our business run more seamlessly by reducing travel time (looking for things time), and now have a more productive environment. Everyone knows where things are, not just me. Hiring a professional organizer is an absolute necessity for ANY business. Don’t put it off, at least get a consultation.
Overwhelmed... Vicky, December, 2017
I have used Mary Ann’s organizing services a few times in the past 2 years. I have a room that we use as both as a computer and a storage room. The storage has overtaken the room... I called Mary Ann and within a couple of hours we could actually walk around the room again!!!
Another time, our finances had gotten out of control. I was swiping my card when I shouldn’t and using next week's check this week. Within a month or so Mary Ann had our finances back on track and for the first time in my life I was working within a budget and sticking to it! Mary Ann keeps everything confidential and strictly on a business level when she is working with you, but she is also a true friend and confidant.
I recommend her to anyone who needs help in simplifying their life from clutter to finances she has been gifted!!
