About Laurie Neumann, CPO®

I’m Laurie Neumann, a Certified Professional Organizer® and productivity and organizing expert. I help others rightsize and organize their homes and offices, and preserve family photo collections for future generations. 

Are you running a business or a busy household? Is it just you? Getting and staying organized is challenging. Just the thought can be overwhelming – especially when the clutter starts to pile up and it doesn’t feel like there are enough hours in the day to keep up.

I know first-hand how distracting and stressful clutter and disorganization can be. For the past nine years, I’ve been committed to helping clients conquer their physical and digital clutter. An organized environment helps clients feel less stress and get more accomplished!

What about all of your photos and other memorabilia? Have you thought about the legacy you’ll leave? The family photos and videos, not to mention the stories behind them – we’ll get them organized, backed up, preserved, and shared. These are important – life’s precious treasures! 

Using a simple process, I work with my clients to declutter and organize their homes, offices, and photos. After creating a solution that works for them, my clients tell me how relieved they feel. Seeing the difference in their lives fuels my passion for organizing! 

I’m dedicated to treating each client with dignity, respect, and without judgment. Together we create solutions for a simpler lifestyle. 

Passionate about the organizing and productivity profession, I’m actively involved in:
