Why a Coach?

As a former personal fitness trainer, I've noticed many similarities between getting a body in shape and getting a home in shape.

It not only requires focus and energy, but time, commitment, discipline, motivation accountability, a change in behaviors, a change in mindset and knowing what to do.

Lacking in any of these areas can cause an organizing project to get derailed, or even worse not started at all!

Working with a personal home organization coach will help you get your projects started and finished. You'll see results faster, with a lot less stress and way more fun.

It's time to get moving and get organized.

The gains will be worth it!

How I Help

After organizing hundreds of homes and transforming thousands of lives since 2003, I have first-hand knowledge of the challenges people face when trying to do organizing projects on their own.

One of the main complaints people tell me, is any attempts they've made to organize only seems to fall apart within days of their well-intentioned efforts.

This happens because:

  • The set-up of the space may not be matching their current needs.
  • Their maintenance routines need simplifying.
  • They didn't change their clutter causing habits such as leaving things "just for now."
  • There is more stuff than space to hold it.

As your personal home organization coach and trainer, I'll help you create the game plan, push you to get it done and train you on how to keep up the results.

With the right plan, we will tackle your organizing projects together using my brain and your hands.

Once you know what to do, you'll be amazed how quickly you'll do it and soon reaping the rewards of a job completed.

Testimonials

Tracy did a virtual coaching and step-by-step plan for me and our garage. I have the time and ability to do it on my own (with my family's help), I just needed a plan and strategies on how to get it done. Tracy went over everything, including different garage organizing tactics, typical roadblocks people hit, easy acronyms to remember while organizing, optimal ways to space out the work, and also reminders to nurture and take care of myself along the way. She has such a great way of demonstrating and sharing her organizational prowess - whether in person or virtually! I’m a huge fan of DIY with Miss Organized! - Wendy Schroeter

Meet Tracy

An organizer at heart since the age of 12, I started Miss Organized Professional Organizing Services in 2003.

Since then I have organized hundreds of homes and changed hundreds of lives.

Along the way I became a Certified Professional Organizer (CPO®), wrote a book, If Clutter Could Tallk...The Stories It Would Tell and have been featured in the media from news to magazines across the country.

Organizing is my passion and teaching and empowering people how to do it on their own is my mission.

My DIY Program was started as a way to help more people get organized and show them they can do it on their own.

I hope to inspire people all across the world to live an organized life.
