When I opened my second business it became very clear that I wasn’t having the easiest time putting two businesses into my one home office. Slowly boxes began to pile up and make their way into other rooms. Enter Meggie and OLD. I have to say that when she told me the first task was to empty everything off every shelf and out of every nook and cranny I had a mini panic attack. I didn’t know how we would fit everything that was already there, along with all the things in boxes that needed to fit to back on the shelves. I have no idea how, but she worked her magic and not only did everything fit, it looked pretty on my open shelving! My husband was amazed that boxes no longer lined the floor. To top it off it was more functional than before. I consider myself a very type-a organized person, but Meggie put the cherry on top! I wouldn’t have the functional, beautiful office that I now have without her!

Meggie and her team are wonderful to work with! It was easy to be her client because, in addition to being a master organizer (and teacher of how to stay organized), she is responsive, thoughtful, and efficient. Meggie helped organize our "everything" room by creating a process for sorting and organizing paperwork, clothes, gift wrap, husband's hobby gear, and electronics. It has made a huge difference in our house that was starting to feel very cramped! I highly recommend working with Meggie and her team, you won't be disappointed!

I don't even know where to begin. Miriam was instrumental in getting me and my family settled in our home after rebuilding from Hurricane Harvey. I was extremely overwhelmed and she made the process run smoothly - and for that I will be forever grateful. Miriam worked on our pantry, kitchen, laundry room, utility closet, china closet, craft room and begun working on a storage room. She was efficient, understanding and it helped feeling like our needs were her primary focus. She asked all the right questions and was supportive and helpful in all the right areas. The work she did in my home has given me a MUCH better outlook and made me excited to be back in my home, instead of overwhelmed and flooded with emotion. I truly do not have enough fabulous things to say about her. I am her biggest fan!

Running my small business from home in my guest bedroom/office/storage room became unbearable pretty quickly. I found Organized Life Design and I can say without a shadow of doubt, it was the best investment I've made so far in my business and home. Miriam worked her magic to help me quickly what to throw away, donate, and keep. She took my cluttered, inefficient room and turned it into a clean, functional workspace. I am forever grateful to Organized Life Design! I highly recommend them to tackle ANY disorganized space in your home or office.

I hired Meggie to help me organize and prepare the nursery for my new baby boy. I loved her so much and she did such an amazing job that I also hired her to help with my girls' rooms, my office area and my master closet. She was professional and so much fun to work with. I plan to use her again in the future!!
- Sarah F.
Meggie and Miriam make an outstanding team! The customer service was superb from the beginning to end. Miriam worked over 40 service hours at my home and it felt like working with a friend. She was so personal and lovely to work with. She listened to what would work for me and made it come to life. I highly recommend this team, Meggie and Miriam, to organize your life. I will hire Organized Life Design in the future.

Working with Meggie has been a pleasure. She has opened my eyes to many new organizing techniques, and I am looking forward to continuing working with her. She is very professional, considerate, easy to work with and definitely knows her business!

Meggie helped me put together a plan to work through my room, which has looked like a bomb went off in it for some time. Now, thanks to her, I have almost completed the room and have a plan to keep it organized so it never goes back to what it was before. I feel like a weight has been lifted from me! So worth it!

First of all, I'm a decently organized person myself-not the kind of gal who just shoves stuff wherever. Insert Miriam-the ultimate professional! She was very thorough before she even came out to help me. She asked questions that helped me prioritize my belongings without ever pushing me to keep or toss. The best part is that It has been about 9 months since she came and my kitchen looks exactly as it did when she left-the system is easy to maintain-even my husband can't mess it up!

Omg. Omg. Omg. I can see my closet floor. All my clothes are hung up and my shoes matched and organized. Miriam Elliott is awesome!
- R. Clark
Miriam helped us organize a storage closet. We were using it as an overflow food pantry and catch-all closet for rags, plastic bags, items to return, etc. Miriam was able to help us figure out what we wanted to keep in that space and get it organized in a sensible, easy-to-maintain way. She had great ideas, but never tried to override our desires. She was professional as she patiently helped us work through our stuff. We are excited and encouraged to have a well-organized storage closet—and we show it off often.
Over the Christmas holiday, Miriam organized my spice cabinet. Did it ever need it. Bottles were piled on top of one another and hard to get to in one small shelf. Miriam was a joy to work with. She was efficient and had great ideas that were simple, effective, and inexpensive. I can find my spices now, the bottles aren't falling out of the cabinet, and I can easily put them back where they belong. Almost a year and a half later, my spices are still organized in the same way--proof of an effective organization job!
Thank you Miriam!

Meggie spoke at a recent networking event for Rising Tide Society of Houston as an expert consultant on all things business and personal organization. She was absolute perfection! I highly recommend her for corporate speaking engagements. She is the perfect addition to inspire and motivate your staff or professional organization. She was prompt, delivered thoughtful content, and wowed the crowd. Her honest, real life solutions to organizational nightmares and witty humor are sublimely entertaining. Great job Meggie and thank you from RTS Houston for your incredible work!!
- Corley S.
Wow!! Meggie is phenomenal! My husband and I own an Event Production company and have grown tremendously from the insight she has shared with us. Her background in corporate sales gives her an advantage to structuring and mentoring small business owners. She's a boss!!
- Michelle C.
Everyone needs Meggie in their life!!!!! She is incredibly talented and one of a kind! <3
- Meredith S.
Meggie spoke at our Houston creatives meeting on January and did such a fantastic job! She shared her knowledge on increasing productivity and organizational tips with all of us and it was so helpful! She's full of information, charming and relatable.
- Sharon M.
Meggie did an outstanding job on organizing/unpacking every room in my house. She has truly made my life so much easier and made me much more productive. Definitely 5 star service from her!!!
- Ryann J.
Oh my gosh, Meggie totally whipped my laundry room into shape! Not only that- she helped my pantry become an actual "step in" room that it hasn't been since we moved in 5 years ago! I just stand and stare at both spaces now and love them so much. Meggie has a fantastic demeanor and never makes you feel like you're "failing" because you're disorganized! Highly recommend her!
- Ailee P.
I worked with Meggie to organize my (extremely messy) guest closet and playroom storage. She made the whole process so incredibly easy, and I am beyond ecstatic with the results. I finally feel organized, and I know I would have procrastinated the project for many more years if it were not for Meggie. I highly recommend her services!
- Charisma M.
I moved exactly one week after having a baby, so saying that Meggie is truly a godsend is an understatement. She helped my husband and I purge, merge our stuff and finally share our space. Even better, we know where everything is, which is a huge feat considering that most of the stuff had been in storage for years. Now, after years of school and subsequent moving, absolutely EVERYTHING has a place... even in the trunk of my car! The feeling is indescribable. By the end of our journey, she felt like family, so my daughter and I will miss her dearly. What I appreciate most about Meggie is that she is very communicative, personable, timely, creative and focused. I highly recommend her services and gladly welcome any correspondence for reference.

Cannot recommend enough!
Personality: Professional, great listener, non judgmental and very confidential (our office needed all the above)
1. Assessed our current filing / mail system. Built a plan that bridged where we were, to where we wanted to be. Got my husband and I to agree, and make a verbal contract on the maintenance plan.
2. Helped us go thru 80 pounds of paper to shred, trash or file.
3. Remained in contact post appointment to ensure we were staying on track and that the plan was working.
* Felt like 80 pounds had been lifted off my back (figuratively and literally). It's an addictive and empowering feeling. Will have her back next week to help with additional projects.

Hiring Meggie was one of the best decisions I have ever made; it has really changed the feeling of my room and home. She helped me organize my small space very quickly, and she had great ideas for making the area more functional and aesthetic. She won’t pressure you to throw away things you don’t want to, but she encourages you to minimize, streamline, and de-clutter! Making over my space helped energize me for the upcoming year and kick-start some productive, new habits! She also makes the process so fun and painless, bringing the needed materials, a little treat, and the most positive attitude! Instead of dreading my next move, I will be excited to have Meggie back, helping me organize my life again!
- Ally C.
As someone who is overwhelmed by the mere thought of organizing, Meggie was just what I needed. Beyond simply tidying up my mess, she provided some great suggestions on how to rearrange some of our furniture to minimize clutter in our living space. I highly recommend Meggie to anyone in need of home or business organization; she’s a true professional with a great talent for making the most of your space!
