An Inspiring Story About Conquering Clutter

Does clutter have you paralyzed? Read Marilyn's inspiring story.

Is your clutter weighing on you to the point where you don’t know where to start? Such was the case for Marilyn. Like many clients whose homes become havens for clutter, Marilyn became overwhelmed when health issues were added to an already busy work and family schedule. But with professional organizing help from Clutter Coach Company, I am proud to say she was able to take the first step, often the most difficult step. A team of Clutter Coach “angels,” as Marilyn calls them, helped her reclaim her home.

Letters like this one remind us why we do what we do.

A letter from Marilyn, A Clutter Coach Company Customer from Wheeling, Ill.

A wise person once told me, “It doesn’t matter when you start.  The
important thing is to start.” I followed this philosophy to achieve many
successes in my life. I always knew that when I started, I would finish, except
when it came to the overwhelming clutter that had collected in my home.

For a period of five years, the people closest to me suffered major health
setbacks. I attempted to take care of everybody while running my business and
trying to recover from an auto accident which left me with bouts of severe
vertigo.  Somehow, during this time, my once very organized home became a
collection of piles begging to be handled. I could barely stand to be at home
because it was impossible to “start” chipping away at the piles. It was the
first time in my life I felt like if I started, I could never finish.

Then I met Jane and her talented team of angels. From the very first time
Jane entered my home, she put me at ease and assured me my home would absolutely turn back into a place I was not only comfortable, but a place I loved. Jane and I discussed a strategic organizing plan that would work in my still too busy life.

And so, with Jane’s help, I started.  The journey was so much more than I
ever imagined. As we tackled each pile, we also healed parts of my life I didn’t
even know needed healing. While clearing the clutter, we laughed, we cried and
then we finished. I can honestly say I now LOVE my wonderfully “clear” space and every part of my home.

So, if you aren’t sure where to start, I urge you to call Jane. It will be
the best call you ever made.

With sincere appreciation and gratitude,


Wheeling, Ill.
