Jan - She's the best. Give her a call. You'll be happy you did. She stopped by my house last week and, bam, just like that, two areas of my house are so much better!
Working with Janice to organize my house has been wonderful. She dives into any organization challenge (laundry room, pantry, closets, piles of paperwork) with great suggestions of how to group things together to get organized and stay organized. She has a lovely non-judgmental demeanor and is great at working with what you already have. Working with Janice has been a great investment in my sanity.
It was time to downsize. We had raised four children in our two story house with a full basement. As we stood looking around at all the STUFF we had accumulated through the 16 years we had lived in that house, we were completely overwhelmed. We didn’t have a clue where to even begin. Then we talked with Janice Lentz. Immediately, Jan offered to come over and take a look. Never once did I sense any kind of judgment when she saw the volume of possessions and disorganization. Janice was all about looking at the big picture and figuring out how to eat our elephant one bite at a time. Thus began one of the most difficult and most rewarding projects I had ever undertaken. It is not easy to go through gazillions of your things - many that have lots of memories and deep emotional attachments - and make decisions about whether to give away, throw away, or keep. Jan efficiently and compassionately guided us through the process and kept us on task. I don’t know where she got all the energy to muddle through all our belongings. She was firm, but loving, in moving us forward and I am happy to say the task is complete! If you need someone to help you organize whether you are selling your house or just want to get things in order, Janice is your lady. Not only have I personally been the recipient of her compassion, brilliance, and energy, but I have witnessed her in action with others as well.
Janice is Awesome! She has the perfect personality to partner with you to accomplish what you want to achieve. I had two rooms full of stuff that needed to be sorted out and organized. Many of the items were left behind by my ex-husband and I had been avoiding the process for quite some time. Janice was able to sensitively help me go through everything and ultimately donate, throw away, save for my kids, etc. She knows how to offer suggestions without overwhelming you. You can trust her to help you turn cluttered space into a beautiful living space.
I got the gift of a home organization session for Christmas. Jan came over and worked on my homeschool space for three hours. It was the best gift ever! I was reminded today when I got out my math manipulative box how very indebted I felt to her for the service.
For the cost of a cute item from Anthropology - I instead got a workable space and with it more mental space to boot. Anyhow, just wanted to let y'all know if you are organizationally challenged or a pack rat (I am a special combo of both) ask for a session with Jan in lieu of more stuff next time a birthday or a gift giving holiday rolls around.
