"Susan helped me organize and arrange my family photos on a wall in my home. I felt I needed some assistance and I appreciated her guidance. Once completed, my mom would stand in front of that wall whenever she visited and admire it and say that it was her favorite part of my house. One of the best memories of my mom that I have!"
After relocating across the country and downsizing to a much smaller home, I found myself with more stuff than I knew what to do with. My garage was packed with boxes, bins, furniture.....needless to say, I was completely overwhelmed and didn't know where to start. I needed help! Susan came in and quickly assessed what had to be done to get things organized. Her approach was simple and perfect. Keep, toss, donate, garage sale. The result was amazing! Not only did she bring organization to the chaos, but she went above and beyond by helping me prepare for a yard sale and posting my big ticket items (washer/dryer, furniture, etc.) on resale websites. And on top of it all, she made it fun! I am convinced that without Susan, a.k.a. MPO (My Personal Organizer), my life would still be in a state of disarray! Susan is amazing!
Susan from Organizing A to Z was a life saver, she not only saved my sanity, but probably my marriage. We added 2 more bedrooms and a bathroom, but I still didn’t have room for all our “stuff.” I felt overwhelmed and my husband just wanted everything put away as soon as possible. Susan came and helped me as well as my teen daughters and husband prioritize and find homes for everything. I have a hard time parting with my belongings so Susan’s mantra of “you can keep it if you find a home for it” was so reassuring. She helped my husband and I talk through how we wanted the rooms to look like. She kept us on task while here helping and with our “homework” when she wasn’t. She was so calming and had great ideas. I don’t know what I would have done if she hadn’t come, but I am sure I would still be sitting in a house full of piles of stuff, instead of a nice neat house that I can entertain in. Thank you Susan!

I called Susan out of pure desperation. My husband and I were in the process of relocating to Phoenix and getting absolutely stressed and frazzled by the amount of work that needed to be done. After one day of feeling frustrated and overwhelmed, I reached out to Susan and she responded and worked wonders. Would definitely recommend using Susan in the future for all of your organizing needs. -Cynthia M., Lake Elsinore, CA
Susan was a pleasure to work with. She helped me tremendously. I love my kitchen and master bedroom. I highly encourage anyone to utilize her services.

The garage looks amazing for the little time spent. So wonderful to have a professional and amazing
person / team to work on this huge project. So happy with the results. Thank you, Susan & Katrina!

5 Stars...an exceptional experience! Susan came in, assessed the task and demonstrated her skills while making sure it was what I wanted. Pantry and cupboards that were stuffed and jumbled became a sparkling, well organized, and easily accessible set of supplies--exactly what they are supposed to be! We will be using Susan's service again for our "clearing the clutter" adventure.

When Susan walks into your house, it is like a breath of fresh air. I'm handicapped and she brought everything to me to see what I wanted to keep or throw away and she labeled everything for me. In my 66 years, I have never come across a better person or better organizer. I want to keep her here in my home all the time because she also has a bubbly personality and makes me feel good!

I found Susan to be very easy to work with. She did an excellent job of organizing several years of paperwork into a very manageable and usable system. I would highly recommend Organizing From A to Z.

After 30 years in my home, it is time for me to downsize and move closer to family. I was overwhelmed at the prospect of boxing up everything and organizing such a big move. Susan Gaines came and life became so much easier. I could not have completed this emotional undertaking without her expertise and knowledge. She organized, helped pack boxes, identified organizations that would take donations, and even took boxes of goods to the donation sites for me. After getting me ready for the move, she helped in staging the house and it is listed and ready for a new family. My genuine thanks to Susan for all her help and support.

I love everything you did. Thank God I found you. You are truly a blessing. You are amazing!

I've worked with Organizing from A to Z on two different projects - my closet and kitchen pantry. Both projects were completed with ease, professionalism, on time and on budget. I have several more projects lined up and will definitely hire Susan when I'm ready to get started. She's patient, not too pushy (for those of us that may have a hard time letting go) and has great ideas for workspace improvement.
-Catherine M., Vista, CA
Susan Gaines is unequivocally kind, honest, dependable, objective, knowledgeable, patient, energetic, and enthusiastic! Letting go of items became an impervious emotional wall for me. Healthwise, I fatigue very easily. Whereas most organizers turn and run, Susan was not the least bit judgmental and accepted the challenge! Skillfully, calmly, and tirelessly she helped me clear and organize some especially difficult areas, all within the constraints of my very limited budget. She is the epitome of a professional and I am so grateful and blessed to have found her. A 1000 thank yous Susan!

I consider myself a very organized person but I needed someone to help me organize my garage quickly and efficiently. Susan was the perfect person for the job. We think a lot alike and I appreciated all of her little touches (creating labels, taking things to Goodwill and sending me the receipts, putting items up for sale on local websites, etc.). She is not afraid to get her hands dirty which was helpful in our garage! I would definitely recommend her if you're itching to tackle a big organizing project.
-Elena S., San Diego, CA
Susan from Organizing from A to Z was super helpful with cleaning and organizing our garage! I would highly recommend her and will certainly use her services again in the future.
-Dana Z., San Diego, CA
Susan is an organization professional. She helped me go through each file I had. We sorted books and reorganized my home office. It is now very operational and every paper has a place to go.
I’m thrilled to know Ms Gaines and am looking forward to having her back to help organize my garage. She is delightful and does not make me feel embarrassed for my lack of organizing clutter.
I am recommending her to everyone...
-Debbie L., Laguna Niguel, CA
I had the best experience with Susan! She helped me get organized for a stressful move, and left my closet looking better than it's EVER looked. I will 100% be working with her again. If you want closet goals, you need to hire Susan.
-Stephanie M., San Diego, CA
Susan has been a blessing in my life. I consider myself very lucky to have crossed paths with her, thanks to Houzz.com. She has been a delight to work with, extremely professional, yet very personable and friendly. Letting someone into my bedroom is not that easy for me but having Susan was like having a trusted family member help me organize my closet which I have been unable to do. She changed the look of my bedroom with her neat organizational skills. She is very talented at her work and also has a beautiful motherly/sisterly energy which makes it very easy to trust her. I have a small closet space and didn't think anything could be done with that little space. However, to my pleasant surprise, she changed the look of it and enhanced the aesthetics of my room and made it much easier to find my own clothes. The makeover of my closet and the chest of drawers has been a wonderful experience and has enhanced my own creativity due to the improved Feng-shui and a neat organized closet. Thank you Susan!!

I had the best time working with Susan. She is great helping you organize, clear up and clean out your projects. I still have her in line for more projects.
