Hare To Organise
What clients say about Hare To Organise
Natalie came into my life at a very difficult time and is helping me to get organised, something which I never really believed was possible but she has instilled the belief in me that it was possible!
She has brilliant ideas which are easily achievable. She is hard working; nothing seems to phase her. She does not judge. She is compassionate. She is emotionally intelligent and has excellent counselling skills. Above all she cares deeply about what she does and cares about the people she is helping. All I can say is that I am truly grateful and privileged to have met her. You are in very safe hands with Natalie.
You are indispensable in my life, now that I’ve found you! I’ve read all the reviews your clients have written and couldn’t agree more, with all their positive comments.
I’ve called you “my Angel” many times and it’s true – you have saved my sanity, and I hope will continue to do so ( old habits die hard).
Non-judgemental, empathetic, professional, discreet and friendly – that’s only part of who you are, Natalie.
When I’m side tracked you get me straight back in line, we laugh and chat.
You understand my knicker drawer will never be tidy, but all other drawers and cupboards are amazingly organised, and (mostly) kept that way 😉
Sorting the clutter from the necessary has been hard for me, a person who has kept/keeps Birthday/Christmas and other occasion cards from my family – there have nearly been 3/4 of a century in that collection.
I would highly recommend you to anyone who has ever been in a muddle: Natalie will wave her hard working wand and tra-laaa! Happy ever after, or in my case, a continuing happy ever after.
We found ‘Hare to Organise’ by an internet search. From what we saw on the website it was clear that this organisation was just what we were looking for to help us sort out and organise a collection of disorganised ‘stuff’ and clutter that we had accumulated over a number of years and from different properties.
It was simply overwhelming for us both physically and emotionally, we just didn’t know where to begin. We first met Natalie when she came to visit the house to size-up the task on hand. Both of us were quite nervous before Natalie arrived, but she was immediately reassuring and those nerves subsided straight away. She assessed what needed to be done and quickly worked out a plan of action and timescales.
Natalie clearly had plenty of experience in handling challenging situations. She always has lots of good ideas, but unfailingly seeks – and gains – agreement with her customers to ensure positive outcomes.
We booked Natalie and an assistant to move a good deal of items from town to town in Cornwall. Unfortunately the chosen day (18 Feb. ’22) was the day of the worst storm in the southwest for 30 years. Roads were blocked, power was out and winds were downright dangerous. It felt like a disaster but due to Natalie’s initiative, quick thinking and sheer determination we managed to accomplish the move the following day.
Would recommend Natalie and her team whole-heartedly. They work very hard physically and mentally and this is coupled with a kind, caring and understanding persona. Please tell her to take a short break now and again though! She is very ‘energy efficient’ as well doesn’t run on coal, gas or petrol just a couple of black coffees (no sugar) daily.
That reminds me Natalie’s company has all the licences for waste disposal, appropriate insurance and DBS checks.
It’s all very well having a nice home with nice things, but if your stuff doesn’t have a home and chaos is constantly erupting everywhere, it doesn’t feel nice to be in.
Natalie came in and just saw immediately what needed to be done. Her mind works in a way that mine doesn’t – she understands how to create order, systems and flow – in a way that I simply don’t.
After just 2 full (hard!) days my home feels completely different, and because everything has a well thought out place, I think that it’ll be much easier to keep it tidy without it getting really messy first.
This process has quite simply changed my life. I just wouldn’t have thought of how to reorganise the space in a way that flows.
I think decluttering and organising is a thing that people think they can just do, that it isn’t an expertise, but I would disagree. Natalie brought in a different perspective, some determination to get the job done, and also somehow made it feel a lot less hard to do.
I’m so glad I reached out for help, and if you’re reading this, I suggest you do too!
Such good value for money when you consider how it will change your life.
Thank you so much
Natalie will turn her hand to anything! She’s helping me fix a hamster cage right now!
To be serious Natalie has helped me organise my house from chaos and has helped me to keep it in an orderly way. She is empathetic and provides what help is needed at the time.
I lay awake at 3am wondering how to help myself become less chaotic, less overwhelmed, less stuck. I lay on the sofa browsing through Facebook (terrible habit, especially in the middle of the night) when I came across Hare to Organise. I sent a message there and then.
Natalie responded the next day. She told me her rates and thought although I really haven’t got spare money, I weighed it up against my mental health. Fast forward a week later and Natalie is sitting with me in my lounge. I poured my heart out and asked for help. With tears rolling down my face Natalie explained how she doesn’t judge. How there are always reasons why homes become cluttered and unmanageable. I didn’t tidy or clean before Natalie arrived at my house that day. I wanted to show Natalie how my house is kept. I had habits of dumping things in piles.
Within minutes Natalie said, well I have a couple of hours, let’s start now. I never realised how hard I found it to throw stuff away. One item at a time Natalie talked me through it. Do you need it? What benefit will it have? Do you use it now?
Roll on nearly 2 months. I have organised systems and feel proud of myself for keeping on top of them.
With Natalie it’s not just about decluttering, she spends time getting to know you, understanding your lifestyle and habits and then puts together ideas and systems that work for the family and space that you live in.
Thank you Natalie, my decluttering Angel. xx
“Having acquired a large quantity of possessions following a number of close family bereavements, I had been finding it hard to keep my house in order. It wasn’t just the amount of stuff but also the emotional connections that I have had with it all. There was almost a sense that I would be betraying my loved ones if I got rid of their belongings. Whilst my head could tell me what I needed to do, my heart was saying something different.
This is where Natalie stepped in and came to my rescue! I know there are some people who cannot get their head around the concept of a professional declutterer but I can assure them that there can be times in your life when you really need this help and I would have no hesitation in recommending Natalie to provide this service.
Natalie treated me with dignity, sensitivity and respect. She has a knack of making me realise that I don’t need to hold onto everything, but without being pushy or critical. She has provided objective practical help enabling me to dispose of the things that I do not need but also helping me to organise what I am keeping in a more orderly, tidy fashion. The support I have received from her is not just practical but emotional as well. (Her husband is a great painter/decorator too so he has contributed to making my home look smarter and more organised).
Thank you Natalie for a great service!”
“Working from home (as opposed to going into work as I was doing pre-covid) meant having to organise my home office space so I could work from there comfortably and effectively. I have to admit that even just looking at the heaped-up boxes of muddled paperwork and all sorts that had piled up around my home desk space made me shudder and retreat to working on the sofa and floor which was not proving effective!
So, I felt it was a stroke of luck that I came across Natalie who came out initially to visit to get an idea of the help I needed and then 2 full days of productive decluttering and organising with friendly supportive, non-judgemental help from Natalie so I can now work effectively from my desk at home feeling happy and in control of my workspace. Natalie also really helped with organising my kitchen cupboards following the installation of our new kitchen.
I can highly recommend Natalie for getting domestic decluttering and organising jobs done, thereby making home life easier, more comfortable and more productive! Thank you Natalie.”
I would highly recommend Hare to Organise. I was afraid and ashamed to ask for help and let life get on top of me. I rang the wonderful Natalie Hare at the very last minute, and I do not regret it. I just wish I had done it sooner.
Whether you need a little help to organise your space or your mind or need a total overhaul, Hare to Organise are the people to speak to.
Above 5⭐ in my books!!!
Thank you sooo much again, for all your help.
I’ve been meaning to contact you for ages, but I find it difficult to juggle everything. I’m doing a whole load of things that I wouldn’t have done if it wasn’t for your help and I wanted you to know…
It was very good timing actually as I don’t know what would have happened to me during this pandemic and lockdowns if it weren’t for the changes you helped with before it started. I certainly wouldn’t have been able to have my kids with me the whole time, which has been an amazing experience and a dream come true
I am now starting college and thinking about uni.
I just wanted you to know what a difference you’ve made to my whole life really….
I would have been alone and in a terrible way, having hardly any contact with my kids during lockdowns- It would have been awful. So Thankyou. We have had the chance to become a ‘normal’ family
Our late father home had been left in an awfully upsetting and shocking state. Hare To Organise were recommended by a friend. I contacted Natalie, who was quick to visit the property, assess and provide an estimate for work. Due to lockdown, Natalie was able to start the job within a week as the property was not occupied. We were so grateful as we don’t live in the area and were unable to travel- it was so reassuring to know that the property was being sorted
Natalie worked quickly and efficiently, contacting us throughout with any queries. She knew the local area, so was able to arrange other services such as disposal, cleaning and fumigation. Natalie would keep the costs low where she could and would always find solutions to problems as they arose. We were so pleased with Natalie’s hard work and professionalism throughout the whole process
We will be forever grateful to Natalie and recommend Hare To Organise 100%
Natalie, you are a superstar. So hardworking and thorough too. Thanks for everything
I was recommended to Natalie by a friend a long time ago.. I rang Natalie several times but I was really nervous about having someone in my house as I felt ashamed at all the mess that surrounded me. I eventually took the bull by the horns and thought I would go ahead. I am so glad I did I am now much happier! Natalie is very empathetic and non-judgemental and listened to my concerns
The value for money is amazing. It is money well spent and I would recommend Natalie as she goes above and beyond. Gives tips and advice on how to keep the house in a clutter-free place! I would definitely use again!
I have struggled with too many personal possessions for a number of years and after downsizing several times, I ended up with way too much stuff for the space I had… I didn’t know where to start
Natalie was kind, listened to all of my concerns and was so supportive.
Having help virtually helped me do things at my own pace and Natalie set me little manageable goals which made it feel more achievable
I used to sleep sideways with half of my bed full and had mountains of clothes and stuff on the floor. Natalie helped me find practical ways of storing what I wanted to keep and ways to get rid of things I didn’t. I was able to stay in control of what stayed or didn’t, but I had the support to make those decisions going forward
Natalie was very flexible with the time and arrangements and she is still checking in on me now, so even though it stays (mostly) tidy, it’s reassuring to have that support
Having things organised makes me feels like I have some control and this has spread out into other areas of my life. I’ve started doing things that I enjoy again as I have the tools- some which I found in the clutter and some I have gained emotionally (and the space to do them in)
The difference this has made to my life is that I am much more conscious of what I am buying (where will I put it?) but also it has helped me to become more confident in myself to achieve other things and to go after further goals
Totally professional with the personal touch. Natalie provides a superb service. Recently she helped my Mother declutter and pack for a house move and then unpack and organise her new home. Without Natalie, this would have presented a major problem as family could not travel to North Devon at this time due to Covid-19
I would unreservedly recommend Natalie’s business. Her organisational skills are second to none and she kept me updated as to the progress at all times
Natalie has transformed my life!
After downsizing , and following the loss of my partner, I was drowning in just too much stuff. Stuff accumulated through our family life and also from the loss of our parents.
Natalie is amazing, she sees not only the problem but exactly how to remedy and organise it back into a living space which I can now relax in and enjoy again.
My excess and unused items went off to various charities, things which couldn’t be used again went off for recycling, even my many years of paperwork was dealt with.
Natalie is wonderful to work with in your home, she isn’t intrusive at all, is kind and understanding and has a great sense of humour. She is a force of nature and I can’t recommend her highly enough.
I now feel calm and happy again in my home, thanks Natalie ?.
It took me quite some time to motivate myself into thinking about dealing with it all. Natalie was recommended to me when I mentioned that I was ready to declutter, and it has changed my life. Surrounded by our belongings I felt demotivated, unable to rest, my concentration levels were non-existent.
I had feared that a professional organiser and declutter-er would sweep in and ride roughshod over our belongings, and over my feelings of grief and bereavement.
I can quite honestly say that Natalie was amazing, she is such a kind, caring, sensitive and empathetic person. She can see exactly how things can be best organised to make the best use of space, and everything was done in consultation with me.
I learned the art of ‘file folding’ so that all my jeans, t-shirts, jumpers, bed linen etc are all now neatly folded and arranged in drawers ( I admit though that I haven’t got the hang of folding king-sized fitted sheets – but I’m working on it ! ). All the clothes that I’d never wear, and the items that were surplus to my needs, have all been donated to be used by others and many trips to the local recycling depot have been made. Natalie knows exactly where it’s best to relocate things to.
Natalie drew up a plan of action with me at the start, we began with the least emotionally charged parts of the task and finished up with sorting out the 30 years of paperwork.
All unnecessary paperwork was securely bagged and shredded by a reliable company. I now feel a tremendous weight has been lifted from my shoulders, I am enjoying living in my tidy, organised home and I can concentrate on my interests and hobbies.
Without Natalie, I would have continued to be depressed by the overwhelming organisational task that surrounded me.
Natalie is an incredible person, I cannot recommend her highly enough, thanks to her I have my life back.
I realise that I still have a way to go ( it’s the books ! ), but when I’m ready to do the next phase, I’ll be giving Natalie a call.
Thank you very much, Natalie.
I used Natalie to help me reorganise my house prior to renting it out for the summer 2 years ago. She was amazing. I thought I had just kept bits I really needed but she made me realise I needed to get rid of so much more! My initial thought was she is getting rid of bit that may be useful. I can tell you I have not missed one of the items she persuaded me to discard. This happened throughout the house. It really made a great difference and helped me when it was change over day as far less to move, replace,dust etc. I am moving soon and will be having Natalie back to help me reorganise my new home and show me the error of my ways again. Thanks Natalie. Forever in your dept. Proffesional, discrete and not expensive.
Natalie offers a brilliant service. I’m no domestic goddess, but my homes now more organised because of Natalie’s help. I think she doubles up as a bit of a life coach as well! I can highly recommend her
Working with Natalie had helped me create calm and order to my house. Leading a busy life with children and a business I struggled to find the time or energy to do the work by myself. Deciding to invest the time and money into a professional organiser has reaped huge benefits. Everyone in the household benefits from the new sense of organisation and order. Natalie is patient and very supportive and has so many ideas and great suggestions as to how to improve your home environment. It’s tailor made to suit the individual needs and that of the house. I thoroughly recommend Natalie if you would like to get organised at home!
Working with Natalie at Hare To Organise, has enabled our clients in complex situations to help to manage their homes better by offering a sensitive, professional, and confidential de-cluttering service
Natalie was so kind and helpful. After our first meeting I was really excited to have her come and help me feel comfortable and relaxed in my first home. She gave me some really useful tips and ideas, which I have found easy to keep going with. You get such good value for money, I would definitely recommend her to anyone and everyone! I’m really looking forward to having her back to carry on!
An excellent service, wish I had done this years ago. Natalie makes it so easy, works really hard and is great value for money. I feel like I am living in a different space and I have things sorted in their place, systems that I can use easily for my whole future. I can’t believe the difference and the positive impact on me is fantastic. Highly recommended
I can’t thank Natalie enough for the help she has given me. I was a bit nervous at first as I have depression and anxiety, but I really needed help as the clutter in my flat and the never ending pile of paperwork was getting me down. I wasn’t sleeping properly as I was worried about how I was going to get organised and sort everything out. I contacted Natalie and asked if she could help me. She came to visit me and I knew in minutes I had made the right decision. She is so friendly and so professional. She explained how she could help me and we put a plan into place. I am now sleeping better than I have done in months, I have my paperwork under control and the decluttering is well underway. I couldn’t have done it without Natalie’s help. I can’t recommend her enough. She has made a huge difference to my life
Lovely lady, very caring and not at all judgmental. Natalie completely transformed my home in 4 weeks.
I was untidy, unorganised and struggling to live in my home.
Now I have a place for everything and so much space.
I love my home now. Thank you so much for doing such a wonderful job
Natalie has brought order from chaos in my house in a practical and positive way. Natalie leaves you with manageable solutions helping you to keep order going forward. Natalie is thoughtful, kind and hardworking. If you are struggling with any form of domestic distress Natalie’s your woman!
Following a bereavement, divorce and house moves in quick succession, I found myself surrounded by disorganised chaos, unwanted clutter, all accumulating dust and moths! With three young children in tow, I was faced by an unsurmountable mountain.
I discovered APDO and my journey with Natalie begun. We have been working together once a week and I no longer face a mountain ahead but a molehill. Natalie has been instrumental in steering me in the right direction with grace, patience, understating, and a lot of empathy. When I lack enthusiasm Natalie is full of gentle persuasion, which pays many dividends when I see the tangible outcome. There is no short cut, the process can be fraught, physical and tiring at times. With Natalie’s constant encouragement the ongoing process is showing many results. Room by room, clarity of mind and overwhelming sense of achievement, each step leaves me a little lighter. None of this would have been possible without working together with my real life magic fairy that is Natalie
I needed my spare room- aka my ‘dumping room’ ready so that a relative could come to stay for an extended time. I felt totally overwhelmed by the task and just kept procrastinating. Fortunately, I came to my senses and contacted Natalie for help. I was amazed at how quickly and professionally she was able to help me. I could see light at the end of the tunnel within our first session. I was concerned that she would want me to get rid of my stuff and that she would try and turn me into a minimalist, but she is gentle and respectful and still manages to bring order out of chaos. I would highly recommend Natalie’s services- the most sensible thing I have done in a long time was to contact her for her help and advice.
