Here is what people are saying about
More than Organized & Miriam Ortiz y Pino:
I didn’t think alphabetizing the spices would be worth it but, it took less than a minute to find all the ingredients! No frustration and time freed up for actual baking. — Ilene
Thanks so much for sharing your wisdom with me. — Darshan Shanti
In about an hour you made yourself indispensable. — Dale Roff
So I will end up with just four small-ish sets of stuff (after the recycling is out). I’m so happy about now having a system for re-storing these things. Your comments helped me see (but not condemn) whatever need I have to “prove” and remember. Thanks! — e
The best thing about working with More than Organized was having someone who was able to help me see beyond the clutter to the possibility. —Pat L.
I wanted to reign in the chaos. The results are surprisingly easy to maintain now that I have a plan and have developed habits based on my situation. That means deciding to spend money on what I need and want with a sense of purpose, not out of fear and a “just in case” mentality. Calm has come to my home and my whole family is realizing what a priceless gift that is. —Kris
Miriam was a huge help a couple of weeks ago when my mom asked my brother and me to help her sort and organize her garage. The place was fairly uncluttered to start, but a bunch of decisions needed to be made and the end result is a functional, organized garage. I personally learned a great deal working with Miriam.
The pivotal point came near the end of the day when my mother held up the deteriorated corsage that my father had given her on their wedding day. As she started to place it back in the trunk Miriam asked “If you throw it away, you were still married to him, right?” She looked at it a while and said, “Well of course!” Then she threw it away. We tend to hang on to “stuff” because we feel as though the memories will go away if the “stuff” goes away.
Had we not hired Miriam, we would still be staring into the first box of memorabilia. We kept the important things that represented milestones in my father’s and grandparent’s lives. Now when my mom pulls into her garage, she sees organized accessible shelves and cabinets and a life-sized poster of Paul Newman! Thanks Miriam! — Carter Taylor
Now that there is a process, I am seeing a difference! — Amber Mazzei
I am a chronic messy person. Give almost any degree of time, long or short, I will build piles of paper surrounding me on my desk, and even on the floor around my desk. I know Miriam Ortiz y Pino, and I know she gets results for her clients. So, whenever I see one of her emails arrive (she is very systematic and sends them all the time), that is my cue to clean up some of the piles around me. Every time I go through htis exercise, I feel and work better. Thanks Miriam! — Dave Meurer
MTO is just amazing! You have no idea how great you feel when you get rid of the stuff you DO not need and organize the stuff you actually will need and use!!! — Karen Owens
I have been disorganized and scattered all my life and in my youth I always assumed it was kind of cute to not know where anything was. As I have grown older, though, I have got very tired of my overall messiness, but have felt kind of hopeless in the face of it.
Miriam walked into my chaos and with a calm cool no-nonsense approach proceeded to make sense of it all.
I now live in an environment where I know what things are where, and how to immediately put a hand on what I need. For me this is nothing short of miraculous, my home now feels streamlined and efficient and I have empty spaces where piles of junk used to be. I will be eternally grateful to Miriam and her “more than organized” philosophy. — Rowan Wymark
You are amazing at what you do, Miriam. I am very fortunate to have the opportunity to work with you! — Michelle Hunter
I was feeling overwhelmed when I signed up for this course. I learned strategies that have helped me gain confidence and a new way of approaching my tasks. I was able to start to organize my files and paperwork, and current mail is being handled on a daily basis. -–Lani Desaulniers
Our Virtual Organizing Sessions were fabulous. You made the whole process so easy and painless, and I loved how you had a clear plan for what we were going to do even though I had no idea how we would do it. You’ve helped me create systems for things that I didn’t even know needed them and now are working so much better. All I knew was that my old ways of doing things just weren’t working anymore and the clutter and chaos was getting out of control. And for someone as affected by the energy of my spaces as I am, that’s huge.
For me, the biggest shift is knowing how and what to do to keep my office functioning well, which frees up my time and energy so I can focus on doing what I love and not having my work flow slow me down.
Plus, the good news is that my office really is staying cleaner. Those seemingly small tweaks and adjustments we made in our last session have been brilliant solutions for getting things working in a nice flowing way that makes sense. I love how my office feels like it is in a high vibration, positive state and that I know how to keep it that way. Thank you!” –– Jenna Avery Soul’s Purpose Coach, Sensitive Living Expert, Intuitive Mentor
Has changed my life. I found my invoices. ––Ron Haas
Miriam is creative and effective at organizing, while being gently supportive and valuing the customer’s opinions and input. I am still using systems she put in place several years ago.. ––Elizabeth Valsala
Saves time with clients and leaves a great impression when I know where things are. ––David Salgado DOM
I’ve extolled Miriam’s skills to you before, telling how she is helping me with my 30+ years and not-to-be-told number of boxes of paperwork. She has done that by encouraging, cajoling, and teasing me into a toss-keep-organize-file and now-can-find attitude.
When I was bogged down or to a mental melt-down state and couldn’t do any more, she’d pitch in and do the first sort, making it easier for me to focus on what was truly necessary or important. Never judging, always helping me to keep my eye on the outcome, she has helped me put into place something that works for me–not a system that I’ll discard in the future and relapse again into mounds of paper.
It took me almost five years to take the first step and another year before I finally engaged Miriam’s services. Now I wonder what took me so long? –– Shelby Smith-Sanclare
You have been a big help in getting me organized! –– John Drozdal
I am so glad Miriam had come to my house. She streamlined my kitchen so well that I no longer stress out when it comes time for dinner. And, when I have guests they are more than welcome to go through my cabinets because now the dishes and pans will not fly out at them. :) Also, before Miriam came, I had two junk drawers now I have none. Miriam has done a wonderful job on my whole house, especially my kitchen, and with her outgoing, fun and energetic personality, I know all her customers will be satisfied. Thanks a bunch Miriam! –– Val
Wouldn’t have gotten off the ground. Could see the possibilities as we went, what we have to organize first so I can work. Motivation. –– Laury Alexander
She helped me fit 5 pounds of stuff in a 3 pound garage. –– Lauren Hull
Credit goes to you that I’ve been cleaning out my purse more regularly. It’s a much nicer feeling!–– Carolyn
I Looked at the labels you made. They cover everything! Thanks again.–– Helen
I have received excellent feedback from our moms. I know I was inspired to tackle the sock drawers, yes drawers, three to be exact. –– Laura Shoemaker
I notice that in the organizing process I find wonderful things that I forgot I had–or didn’t really need to replace. I did my cosmetic drawer recently and found three pair of tweezers–two were purchased to replace the other two missing pair. –– Pat
Simple no nonsense solutions. –– Scott Simmons
Great results with Bob’s clothes today. He went through the neat piles in less than twenty minutes and made his decisions. Poof! They are gone! More of mine, too! More room in his dresser now. Nothing on top. Thank you! –– Sarah
The desk mess has been organized, streamlined, and a process has taken root and is working well. It was a great step in the right direction, cleaning the slate for several aspects of my life in the new year. ––Forrest Courtney
Miriam is a wonder. Before Miriam began working with me, several rooms in my home were basically unusable due to accumulated clutter. I found the prospect of dealing with it overwhelming, and had made little progress despite several attempts to “clear the decks.” With Miriam’s guidance and hands-on assistance, I’ve been able to clean out tons (probably literally!) of things that I wasn’t using, didn’t care about and certainly didn’t need. Beyond that, Miriam has set up systems that work for me and that help keep new clutter from building up. I feel that Miriam’s expertise and gentle persistence have given my home a whole new feel and have lifted a huge burden from me. –– Margi Rust
My husband says it is the best money he ever spent. ––Rosalie Hipple
Space arrangement and set up allows an assistant to do the upkeep and grunt work. The tickler file is very helpful. Now have the confidence that it can be done. ––Dede Feldman
I am so appreciative of your wonderful organizing services & training. This is really working for me to have had this series of sessions. We’ve accomplished more than I ever thought we could in then amount of time spent. And thank you for making it affordable.
My office paper happily now has places to go. The office is functioning better. My studio is functioning better, and I am even sleeping better! I can find things now and organization is spreading to areas we haven’t even touched — funny how that happens! –– Pat Forbes
The system really holds up. I am no longer missing opportunities because there is built in timeliness. I am also less overwhelmed and understand simplicity. ––Laura Berg
You have been such a terrific help over the last two years in getting my spaces organized for my priorities; I can’t thank you enough. — Sarah
Keeping things clean is easy. I can see at a glance what I have and need so I am saving money. –– Ruth Willet
I can see everything now. No guess work to where items are. My garage is organized saving me time and energy. –– William Hart
We are so grateful to have had you as our speaker! Thank you so much for coming, and being with us. It was one of the best turnouts that we have had for a program. –– Betty Ann
More than Organized is an incredible service. I highly recommend investing the money to allow the time to be more creative and generate more money, joy, and opportunity in your life than a dysfunctional office. More than Organized was a perfect way for me to enhance my life and grow my career. –– Emily Darnell-Nunez
I asked for help with my filing system, and Miriam was able to suggest a logical method that works. –– Susan Leonard
This is a “must have” service for anyone trying to manage all the paper that comes into today’s office. More than just a filing system, Miriam teaches an approach to desktop management that puts the executive in control of the flood. 8 months after her consultation, I have kept my desk clear and my office organized. –– Ken Kenny Ph.D., MSW
You’ve done a great job! It has made a big difference and improved communications here. –– Jennifer Martin
Wow. You are good. Did you give me this and I lost it? Can I pay you for this? Thanks Miriam. So much. I truly AM working on organizing my life!! –– Kim Kirmmse Toth
After taking days to declutter one room and not getting very far, it was time to call in a pro. Miriam made more progress in three hours than I had in a month in just one room. She is able to help the client see and detach from the irrational reasons we all have for keeping certain things and cut to the chase to help you keep what you truly need and organize it so that it is functional for your use.
We are all too emotionally attached to things that no longer bring us happiness, yet do not or cannot seem to get rid of them. Miriam can do in 3 hours what it takes most of us days to do—cut to the chase on decluttering, and bring you peace of mind in knowing that she will have things organized in no time at all. –– Marsha Thole
You waded into the chaos that I couldn’t face – and did a gracious and masterful job in helping me get organized. –– Laura Berg
