“Moving parents in their 90’s from a house they have lived in for 50 years was a daunting task. The house was full of so many memories, mementos and stuff, the task seemed almost insurmountable.
Mom needed to sort, donate, dispose and pack for a new home and we also had to prepare the house for showings and for a house sale. Egads! As mom became aware of the enormity of the challenge, the more overwhelmed she started to become. It was creating a great deal of anxiety until your team arrived on the scene.
I was impressed by so many things you did, but perhaps the one thing that impressed me the most was your kindness, patience and understanding of the emotional upheaval such a move entails. You treated mom with the utmost respect and so gently handled all those tough decisions. You never lost your patience, rushed her or forced her to make a decision. She so enjoyed working with you that I think she was sorry when the work was done!
Your professionalism and skill combined with your sensitivity to the situation made such a big difference. We couldn’t ask for anything more. The move out was very successful as well as the move in. We could not have done it without you. Many thanks to you and your team.”
“Altogether Organized, Linda Goldman, provides an outstanding organizational service. She is single-minded about producing a clean, productive and efficient space with incredible grace and good humor. I can’t imagine how all that happiness translates into such effective work, but it does. Working with Linda feels like a gift to myself. Beautiful order is restored and systems put in place that can be repeated in the future. It was the best value for my money that I have received in a long time! Working with Linda was a great experience and I highly recommend her.”

“Thank you for being great to work with, allowing me to show my insecurites and shame, and at the same time, not making me feel judged. On top of that, having a great sense of humor and being fun to talk with while we work. I can’t believe that this time last year, I was just planning to get started and now we’ve done so much to get this place in order! Looking forward to getting it finished in 2016. Thank you!!
“I hired Linda after a kitchen remodel left me with about 30% less cabinet space than I had in my original kitchen. I was under time pressure and I was staring at boxes and boxes of kitchen items that I couldn’t find a home for. Linda was responsive and was able to squeeze me into her schedule to accommodate my time constraints. In just a couple of hours, Linda worked her magic and she rearranged and reorganized so that the right things were in the exact right places and I had room for everything! I would turn around and all of a sudden Linda would have an empty drawer to put more things in – I still can’t figure out how she did that! I am so thankful for Linda’s help every day – I love my new kitchen and feel incredibly organized and everything is right where I need when I need it! Not only is Linda efficient and great at what she does – she also has a great personality and it was a pleasure to spend time with her – we had a great time working on a project that I had dreaded for months. I highly recommend Linda!”

“I would like to thank you for all the help you gave me in organizing my ‘messy’ office. After 5 years of just stacking papers in piles, with your system I can now find things in my files and drawers.”
“We are still in awe of the way you not only turned what had become a ‘storeroom’ back into an inviting Guest Room, but also transformed our Living Room and Dining Room back into rooms in which it is a pleasure to entertain! And you did all this in only a matter of hours! Even if we’d taken before and after pictures no one would believe them.”

“If you are ready to “get organized“ and you want to do it with efficiency, fun and great professional guidance then call Linda Goldman. She is the best!”

“How do you transform a gloomy storage room inside a landmarked school? A room so stuffed with potential “art stuff” that the human eye could not see the floor? Call Linda at Altogether Organized and watch a disaster turn into a creative spot for storage and future projects. The bonus was Linda smiled throughout the entire process.”

“Altogether Organized is the best investment I have ever made. They have taken a very complex office in which it was almost impossible to find anything and immediately improved it so much that I save hours of time. This is definitely a feel-good expense because I always feel better after each meeting.”

“My husband and I have learned life changing habits from Linda Goldman. My children are also learning from our new habits to let go of too many material items and make way for space. We have broken the pack rat chain!!”
