We simplify with S.O.U.L.

“Laura was a life-saver when she organized my closet!”

“I was having a really hard time getting rid of anything, and she helped me realize that I didn’t need a lot of what was cluttering up my closet. I slept better after working with Laura, knowing that there was less extra junk in my life! Everyone should spend a few afternoons with Laura and see how much better their homes (and their lives) can be!”
-Shelly

Ever wonder what it's like to move in and have pro organizers unpack for you?? Well, wonder no more.

These pics are of us unpacking for a client who wasn't even with us. They were away on vacation. 

We talk the client, ask questions about how they use their items, how often they access certain things and then set up a sustainable system for success!!

Not every pantry is packed and stacked to the gills🐠 

This client has a large pantry but not too many items...so we set him up with room to grow, into his new home and his new pantry. And that's exactly what he did. 😃

Did someone say A C C E S S O R I E S ! ? ! 

Nothing tops off a 🔥 look like the perfect accessories! We want to help you keep your collection looking brand new for as long as possible. 

If these babies get out of order, it can be a real hassle to put it all back together. Untangling necklaces 😫 am I right??

First things first: 
Group alike items together + edit out items you no long wish to keep.

Now you're ready to look for the perfect accessory organizing solutions. Buying products too soon in the process, you'll end up buying something that just doesn't work.

Try modular clear trays that fit together, or maybe a wall mounted accessory wardrobe is the way to go!

Choosing containers similar in color and style, creates a neat and tidy look. 

🍭 Some candy in the jars and some eye candy for you!

They say you can't buy happiness, but I mean...💕👠👡💕

Storing shoes can be tricky! We used  these crystal, stackable shoe bins to create a shoe wall. Shoe heaven - for our client. 

She wanted to see all her shoes and have easy access to take them out and put them back - easily. Mission accomplished. 

Plus...they're so purdy!! 💕
