What clients say about Hare To Organise

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

After my partner died suddenly in an accident I was living in a flat that we had downsized into.  I was surrounded by the stuff of 30 years of family life, all packed into a space too small for it.

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!

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!

Barnstaple, August 2019

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

Bideford, May 2019

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.
