The Art of Organization

“Professional organizing services help us save time, money, and improve our health!”

—- Gayl Monto, Professional Organizer

What is a Professional Organizer?

Professional Organizers achieve the goal of creating and maintaining organizational systems by teaching others the basic principals of organization. Using the acronym “SPACE,” S=Sort, P=Purge, A=Assign a Home, C=Contain, and E=Equalize, Professional Organizers can help to guide you in the process. The last step (“E”) helps you to monitor how the newly created system is working, adjusting it if needed, and then maintaining it.

One of the main jobs of a Professional Organizer is to help clients reduce excessive clutter in the home or in the office. Professional Organizers help individuals and business owners take control of their surroundings, their time, their paper, and their systems for life.

Professional Organizers offer a wide variety of services, including designing a functional closet, organizing a relocation or cross-country move, or helping to select home furnishings. For homeowners, a Professional Organizer might plan and reorganize the space of a room, improve paper management, or coach in time-management, or goal-setting. In a business setting, Professional Organizers work closely with their clients to increase productivity by stream-lining paper, filing, electronic organization, and employee time-management.

What Our

clients say.

"Gayl is a godsend! We blew through my entire house, every closet, drawer, etc., including the dreaded basement and garage. Gayl’s energy never waned, which kept me moving and engaged. She set up an entire system that my family can follow, to make clean up easier. My desk is my worst “hotspot,” but Gayl barreled through it all, including boxes and bags of decades old papers and memorabilia."
Mom - Kenilworth, IL
"The thing I enjoyed most about working with Gayl - besides her sunny disposition in the face of what felt to me like insurmountable tasks - was her subtle way of helping me figure out what was underlying my hesitation to let go of things I clearly didn’t need anymore. Her background in social work sets her far apart from other people in this field. She is detail oriented, a great problem solver, has tremendous energy, and creative brilliant ideas. I would hire her again in a heartbeat."
Fitness Instructor - Lake Bluff, IL
"Working with Gayl has changed our family life. I spend much less time at my desk, since it’s more organized, and the systems she put in place are so easy for me to maintain and make getting things done much faster. Cooking is more enjoyable because everything is organized and in a place that makes it readily available when I need it."
Yoga Teacher - Wilmette, IL
"Gayl is very task oriented and offers lots of affirmation, which I needed. She’s also totally respectful and judgment free of sentimental items that may look like junk to an outsider. Gayl’s a pleasure to be with for long periods, both keeping it light and offering deeper counsel when it’s desired. After every session I felt great about myself and my progress. I wholeheartedly recommend working with Gayl to organize your spaces!"
