There’s Amazing Power in Organizing your Time, Space, and Life and the Benefits are Real.

Pleasant, Patient, and Professional

“Managing Modern Life!” That is the phrase that captured my attention. My wife and I have used Metropolitan Organizing ® several times to help our family become better organized. Geralin helped us donate, sell, and “edit” clothes we no longer wore, household items we inherited and holiday decor items that were outdated. Our family has relocated several times in the past few years and thanks to Geralin’s pre-packing tips we were amazed that every box was efficiently packed and unpacked within one week. We took her advice and saved money moving; we didn’t pack, move and unpack any unnecessary items. Geralin is pleasant, patient, and professional.

Sharing Real Knowledge and Experience is Tranformational and It Helps Others to Grow and Thrive.

Marketing Genius

When I started my professional organizing business, Geralin was invaluable. She helped me with assessments, forms, contracts, marketing, speaking presentations and specialty clients. She encouraged me to add services beyond residential organizing including relocation, senior organizing and social media.

Geralin is a marketing genius! She gave me countless ideas and helped me focus my time and resources. I always recommend Geralin to other organizers. She’s funny, sweet, encouraging and personable to talk to — you have an instant friend and mentor.

When You Wear what Makes You Feel Comfortable and Confident, Something Magical Happens.

Very Useable Format

Geralin, a million thanks for this information! I am so impressed by the Beyond the Basics Wardrobe Wisdom kit — you've really packed a lot of information into a very useable format. And of course the wardrobe worksheets are now my constant companions. When I pack for trips, I just pull out my worksheets to see what I have that is the right weight, what is the right level of dressy, and what I might pack for 5 days that would minimize the number of different colors of shoes I require. Your forms made it so much easier! Plus, I no longer wear just a small percentage of my clothes — now I enjoy them all. Margaret Lukens, MBA, CPO; California

Very Enlightening!

I found Geralin’s presentation to be very enlightening!

Although I consider myself to be very organized, Geralin presented many ideas and solutions that can improve my current systems, which will lead to saving time and energy down the road.
