I had just recovered from an injury that greatly restricted the use of my right hand/arm. And prior to my injury, I was under extreme pressure and deadlines at work, and the stress was starting to manifest itself into the beginnings of chaos in my living surroundings. By the time I hired The Clutterologist, my place was a wreck! In a matter of minutes, Lauriann had a plan of attack, and was very patient and supportive throughout the entire process as we worked together to create a beautifully organized living space utilizing Feng Shui principles. Since, I have worked with Lauriann, there has been so much positive energy in my life. And it has inspired me to make many positive changes in my daily thoughts and actions that has made a tremendous improvement on my outlook and attitude. Many people have even commented that they have noticed a positive energy glowing from me recently. I highly recommend The Clutterologist for all of your organizing needs. It is definitely worth the time and money.

We were contemplating moving to a larger home and utilized the services of the Clutterologist to prepare for the sale. After decluttering, we found that there was so much more that we could actually do with our current home and decided to stay. I highly recommend her services.

I have been working with Lauri for about a month now. She is helping me transform my home one room at a time. I was totally overwhelmed by my house. With kids and full time jobs, our house had gotten totally out of control. I would try things here or there, but it was never enough to make a true impact. I needed a total transformation and that is what Lauri is making possible for us. She came in and looked around the whole house and we just dug in one room at a time. She has made some very inventive suggestions about maximizing the use of my space. I have been absolutely amazed at the results. I was nervous hiring an organizer because everything was such a disaster and those TV shows made me afraid that someone would come in and yank my stuff out of my hands., This is SO not the case. Lauri is kind, gentle and really non judgemental. It is hard work, indeed, but Lauri keeps me motivated and focused. She never makes you do things you don't want to do. She works to make your space do what you want it to do. Also, I got quotes from several people. Laurii's rates are extremely competitive and, in my opinion, she is worth every dime.

Lauri is amazing. She magically transformed my storage unit and house into clutter-free beauty! Her work speaks for itself, but her spirit and genuine heart are a pleasure to be around. After spending so much time with her, I consider her a friend. I downsized a 4br/3.5ba house to a 1br apartment when I relocated to California. She made it absolutely stress free. I hope others have an opportunity to experience her magic. I couldn't have done it without her.

I joked that I could not see over my desk and down the hall; I was surrounded by the "great wall of China" except that this one was constructed of piles of paper and various office (and non-office) debris. I read all kinds of magazines that made organizing sound SO EASY! But I just couldn't wrap my head around it. I have a big project coming up and my office was not a pleasant place to work. I was losing things, creating unnecessary stress and the dust collecting around the piles was making me nuts. I found Lori. I was skeptical in general (not about Lori specifically, but about the ability of my office to be organized). Lori was very quick and thorough in responding to my emails and we set up a meeting. After a six hour visit (and we're not quite done yet), we made an enormous dent in my office and it's absolutely wonderful. Lori has some great basic principles and helped me realize that there are things I don't need to keep. And there are ways to corral all the stuff I was buried in. So say YES to Lori and Clutterologist. A HUGE bargain for the peace and freedom you feel after having been chained down by your heaps of stuff! I can work now with a much clearer head and feel at peace in my office. I have been able to find the things I've needed. And we finish up this week. I can't wait! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!

I loved my experience with Lauriann. She was flexible with scheduling, arrived on time and put me at ease right off the bat. My dining room is now an area that I want to spend time in - after getting the "junk" out and shifting a few pieces of furniture, there is truly a much better flow & energy to the house. Lauriann has a calming and positive personality and her 3 hour visit flew by. For those that might be hesitant to try her services, just do it! Having a clutter-free home really creates a sense of peace in other areas of your life! A++

I connected with Mrs. Stepp via a coupon site, and BOY! What a blessing! She arrived promptly, and asked questions which drew out my concerns and needs. I was concerned that an organizer would try to impose their ideas, as opposed to a negotiated set of solutions, but Lauriann compassionately and patiently worked with me. Allowing someone to come into my home, given its condition, was a bit intimidating, yet Lauriann was non-judgemental. Mrs. Stepp is very hands-on, as opposed to a director. She has more energy than the Energizer Bunny, and she is not a 'clock-watcher'. My energy gave out before her's did. We made so much progress, in factt, that I saw my room in a different light and decided that I wanted to rearrange it. Yet, I could not fully visualize a new arrangement. With her leading the way, we created a wonderful new great room. If you are looking for a professional who is also delightful, give Lauriann Stepp a try. You won't regret it.

Thanks to Laurianne our office was transformed in to a functional workplace. What was a dreaded appointment turned out to be painless and simple. She was most professional and provided a thorough yet efficient filing system. The work in progress is now a reality! I would recommend her to anyone who needs structure. Thanks Laurianne

My space was a total mess! After 4 hours with Lauriann, the place felt like a palace. The place was so clean! And has stayed that way. After reading tons of organizing and feng shui books, I finally got what I really needed - help from a pro. I am compelled to keep my space in order because it feels so good! And I taking clean to other parts of the house. Lauriann is fun to work with and addresses the issues around creating a great life. We will be tackling paper next.Yes! Lauriann is the best!!!

Before I met Laurianne I was a MESS!!! I have 3 jobs and I need equipment and supplies for all 3.So I had stuff everywhere!!! I heard about Laurianne through a very good friend but I must admit I was embarrassed to let her see my mess. So, I waited and when I couldn't take it anymore I called her. When she came to see my "mess" I closed my eyes and pointed her to the room and the first thing she said was "is that it?". I immediately opened my eyes and thought, "this is going to be great". She really made me feel like my "mess" was normal. She never judged me. And when she was done I looked like the most organized woman in the world. I showed my family and they couldn't believe it!!! What I like about her is that not only will she clean but she teaches you how to be organized. She will give you keys to make sure you can keep it up!!! It's fantastic!! There is one thing that I always remember and it helps me keep my place just like she did it!!! The other thing I like about Laurianne is that she becomes like family. She is easy going, non-judgmental, and friendly. And she has an amazing work ethic!!! She will push you until you get tired and then she will keep pushing until your place is finished!! She has been to my home 6 times now because we have used her services in other rooms!!! So, if you are looking for someone who can organize the worse mess without making you feel bad and give you tips to help you stay successful...Laurianne is the chosen one! -The Happy Trainer

Lauri's ability to eliminate clutter and get you organized without judgment makes it easy to take your focus off yourself and concentrate on the task at hand. Her wonderful upbeat personality and great attitude pushes you to look beyond was overwhelming and daunting and to just be in the moment working on the task at hand. She's truly a blessing and has wonderful gift! I highly recommend her!

As an executive assistant, I am so used to keeping all of the balls in the air and I have to always stay organized for everyone else. BUT... during the past several years, my own basement had taken on a mind (and life) of its own. I was even afraid to go down there! Lauriann saved me and my sanity! Now the place looks great and I am on my way to making some cash on a yard sale! Thanks Lauri!! You are the BEST!!
