  • “We had a large closet in our front hallway that needed some serious attention. After speaking with Liz about our specific needs for the project, she quoted me a very fair and reasonable price and we made it happen. We spent a great afternoon together going through everything and reorganizing. We couldn’t have done it without her.”

I can now get use of things because I can find them, and also because I have less. She truly helped me shed the unnecessary.
