A Lifesaver

I met Geralin at a Moms Of Boys meeting. [After working with her] I can see my kitchen counters and find any piece of paper I need from my files. Geralin keeps me on track and encourages me in dealing with my AD/HD and chronic disorganization. I used to start systems all the time but now I have one that is right for my needs. [Previously] I dumped piles of papers into boxes, and ended up moving them from place to place. Having a place for everything is a lifesaver.

Organizing Magic

When my wife told me Metropolitan Organizing ® was coming in to organize our basement I was curious as to what that entailed. When I heard Geralin’s plan was to swap my large portion of the basement (dubbed “the man zone”) with the smaller area that was my wife’s office I wondered if this was a conspiracy. I gave in (two women vs. me, you do the math) and the results were surprising. Although I had more space with the old setup, I rarely used it. My wife now has a large office with enough room for a sitting area, craft table, and storage. I have a great room to watch ball games in, play darts, or just lounge around in. There was also enough free space to add a work room in for me once Geralin worked her organizing magic. I am now completely sold on the concept and will use Geralin again on future projects.

Friendly, Intuitive, and Just Plain Smart

For many years I have wanted this kind of organization in my home office; I just didn’t know where to start or how to do it; now I have the tools. I can’t believe how easily I can file — and more importantly — retrieve things. The lighting suggestions have made a huge difference in my productivity as well. Now my home office is absolutely wonderful! Geralin has a rare talent; she is friendly, intuitive, and just plain smart!

Geralin, thank you so much for the gift that continues to give… time!

Gave me Focus, Determination, and a Formula for Success

I highly recommend Metropolitan Organizing ® and Geralin Thomas. Her wisdom, understanding and creative ideas make my life much easier. As a “paper procrastinator,” I have a hard time jumping in and getting things done (i.e. filed or pitched). Her direction is perfect in that it gives me focus, determination and a formula for success. My stacks are smaller and I don’t dread them any more. Geralin is a true gem and a pleasure to work with in any capacity.

Excess Storage

When we purchased our new home, we laughed about how much excess storage it had. Three months later we stopped laughing, as we tried to cram yet more of our stuff into our large closets and cabinets. Recognizing that there had to be a better way, we called Metropolitan Organizing ®®, who promptly reorganized all of our possessions in half the space. We feel like we bought our new home all over again! Geralin helped us manage our modern life.
