This week is my second roundup of some amazing professional organizing blogs I think everyone should be reading! Some may fit your style, needs, or location better than others so I thought I would begin by sharing five of my favorites every week. This will give you a wonderful glimpse of the talented professional organizers and organizing bloggers our profession has out in the universe.
Here are my five featured professional organizing blogs for this week:
Good Life Organizing
In 2010 Andi created Good Life Organizing to help people who are overwhelmed and struggling with all of their clutter. Her favorite thing about her job is seeing a client go from anxious and upset to smiling and relaxed. She love’s making a difference in someone’s life. Andi is also a very hard working mother of two! Currently a member of the National Association of Professional Organizers, he is also a Certified Personal Photo Organizer. Andi has a really excellent blog series called, Fall Fling 2015 you should check out in case you missed it!
Janice M. Simon
The Clutter Princess
It was only recently that I found out Janice Simon is from very close to where I am from in Oklahoma. Yes, we are both Okies! Janice has been a Professional Organizer since 2001, she is a certified professional organizer© (CPO), a member of the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO), The Organized Auntie on the Savvy Auntie blog, and the in-house professional organizer at a major cancer center. Can you say WOW!
It’s gratifying to help people streamline and rediscover their lives. When I arrive at a client’s door, I can see how stressed out he or she is, but by the end of our time together, I can see how much better they feel. That makes me happy.

Hazel Thornton, creator of The Clutter Flow Chart Collection, loves helping her clients find the freedom that comes from getting Organized For Life. She is the only organizer in New Mexico with a background in both Engineering and Fine Arts. So what? So, she can create an organizing system that works for YOU, and also give your space a whole new look and feel using what you already own! Hazel’s clients appreciate her straight-forward, non-judgmental approach to creating balance and beauty in their lives. Her tagline — Less clutter. More life. — represents the freedom that comes from rising above one’s clutter and living life more fully. She knows that there is no single organizing system that works for everybody. Whether you are organizing stuff, space, or time, her job is to help you find the organizing system… or furniture arrangement… or ideal schedule… that will work best for YOU! I love how Hazel is a straight shooter but also caring and compassionate!
