"Holly and the team are really incredible! We are thrilled with the difference they made to our physical space (and it has also been a boost to my mental space too). They helped us tackle our tower of paper, transform our closet and garage. We have organizing our kitchen and pantry next on the list. My girlfriends and I attended the workshop to organize our photos and children's schoolwork, it was surprisingly fun and very productive. Thank you Holly and team, they made a difference for us and they can help you too with their gentle approach and helpful suggestions!" - Joyce
"Holly was a gift sent from Heaven above. After the loss of both my parents I had to go through all their belongings and she helped me with every step of the way. From how to sell pieces of furniture, have a garage sale, and give gifts of love to people my parents cared for so very much. She showed grace, mercy, and love all along the way. She taught me skills that I have been able to take to different aspects of my life. She not only looks at the clutter of your life but she looks at you, the whole person. She is such an amazing person. Christ's light shines bright in her. I could not have gotten through all my mom and dad's stuff, plus the emotional toll it took, without Holly. She is amazing, supportive, and works with what you have. So much talent! She is the best." -Stephanie
Holly helped me think through what I really wanted to accomplish and respected my wishes.
"Holly came 2 years ago to help bring organization to our garage. It had become a dumping ground. She set up areas for the different "families": crafts, pet supplies, sports equipment, etc. She worked steadily and listened to my goals and concerns. She helped me think through what I really wanted to accomplish and respected my wishes. With just twenty minutes left, she tackled my laundry room and made it organized and neat. A few months later she helped clear out the closet in my front bedroom. This area houses lots of schoolbooks and materials. She has a knack for arranging to make the best use of space while also making it look attractive. She even found a spot in the closet to store an extra chair! With 20 minutes left, she organized my front hall closet using baskets I had on hand. Her last visit was to help our teenage son with his closet. I was amazed to view the order they brought to that area. She then helped organize a different area of the garage. With her encouragement I continued to declutter even after she left. God has used Holly to inspire me with my home organization. It is so liberating to see order and calm replace the chaos! Now she's taken her magical mission to Michigan. You will enjoy her and benefit greatly from her organizing skills!" - Janelle
Wow! Holly does great work. I'm impressed with how she can help declutter a room or closet and bring a sense of order & peace. She is very gifted and pleasant to work with! - Keith
My house has never looked so clutter-free in ten years.
"Our ladies retirement group really enjoyed Holly's talk. The presentation gave us so many tips to help us get organized according to our individual desires and vision. Ideas such as baskets, going vertical, and especially not feeling judgmental about our personal style were wonderful. Understanding the thought process of poverty mentality being a reason we might hold onto useless items really opens our minds to change." - Deborah
"We had Holly Southerland and her team take on a home office and pantry to show us how to calm the chaos. The results were refreshing, functional, and maintainable! She also provides tips on how to maintain your space, leaving you feeling calm, more productive, and a little giddy. It's been a few months since these projects were complete, and happily, both spaces have been maintained. Holly's tips stay with you, and you may find your new found organization spilling into other areas of your home and life." - Brandy // Read a featured article with Brandy Stoffel & Ashley Munn's experience working with us here on the Modern Texas Living blog.
Holly not only looks at the clutter of your life but she looks at you, the whole person.
"We moved here not knowing anyone.Holly was referred to us through my company's relocation service. She and her helper unpacked our boxes and set up our whole kitchen in one afternoon. We were already so tired from moving cross country, and my wife recently had surgery, so this felt overwhelming to do alone. This was an amazing service to have. We can now cook in our home." - Sai
"Holly was so gracious to tackle my closet, which was a large task! My closet was so overwhelming and sad before Holly, but she came in and sat with me while we went through things. She is so patient and helpful with organizing. When Holly was finished with my project I felt extremely pleased! My closet is a fun and happy place again, and I love walking in and looking at everything that makes me happy!" - Stefanie
Holly has a great attitude and makes you feel at ease to talk to her about your needs.
"I'm so excited to share my experience with Holly. First of all Holly has a talent for organizing just about anything you have that you want her to help you with. Holly has a great attitude and makes you feel at ease to talk to her about your needs. Holly is a very good listener. Holly is open to your desires in what you think about what you would like. Holly knows what she is doing. She gets it done in the time you want. My closet was a storage closet of everything! Seasonal decor, linens, boxes of unworn clothes, family heirlooms, and all other randomness that I have collected over many decades. Holly suggested we limit it to seasonal and family heirlooms. She was so helpful that we designated another closet just for clothes and another closet just for linens. I really like this. It makes me feel so happy to be able to go to my closet and find the things I need for that day in a snap! Holly's excellent suggestions helped me and her effective and quality work is worth her price." - Zada
"I always DREAD big organizing projects! Working with Holly has taken the dread out of cleaning and rearranging my garage and closets. She is full of great, creative ideas which get me excited about our work. She takes all of the torment out of decision-making and guides me to the very best solutions. Holly is not afraid of hard work and is full of energy. It is always so much fun to tackle those dreadful projects alongside her!" - Vicki
"Holly came over to organize my home office and get some great systems in place for my Mary Kay business and she did an AMAZING job!! She was great to work with and I know I will see improvements with my working environment and goals I have for my business. I would highly recommend her if you need a little order in any area of your home/office!" // Two Years Later: “Positive Update: I am pleased to share that after a couple years I have been able to keep the systems in place that Holly set for me! I was a little worried at first, that after time I wouldn't be able to maintain my newly organized office, but seeing how Holly put it all together and how helpful it was, kept me motivated to keep it this way. I have since earned another free career car with my company, and I truly know that having a more organized space to work in kept me focused and on track allowing me to reach this goal. Thank you so much Holly!” - Katelin
After our parents passed away, we couldn't seem to regain momentum. By the end of day one working alongside Holly, I began to regain my enthusiasm.
"Holly is a GEM!! I had recently gotten married and moved into my husband's bachelor-pad apartment. It felt like such a huge, overwhelming task to organize, sort through, and redecorate on a budget. Holly swooped in and saved the day! She took the time to learn my style, and with her organizing/ decorating/ crafting/ bargain-hunting expertise, truly transformed every space in our apartment into a beautiful new home within two short days. I was amazed! We had a blast and she is an absolute joy to work with! I cannot recommend her highly enough!" - Courtney
"We'd been staring at overwhelming stacks of stuff for far too long after our parents passed away. Our own piles of personal items were added to the mess--we just couldn't seem to regain momentum. Enter Holly. By the end of day one working alongside her, I began to regain my enthusiasm. I could see floor space, flat surfaces and closets clearing out. By day two, I had the makings of a beautiful master bedroom and guest room. On day three, I was highly motivated to check things off the list we had created to complete the clean out and beautification of three bedrooms, a breakfast room and living room. Holly is brilliant at what she does. She thinks and works strategically so that within minutes you're on your way toward reclaiming a calm, orderly, lovely environment. I would recommend her in a heartbeat." - Linda
I would recommend her in a heartbeat.
"Holly was a lifesaver! I was working on a big garage clean out surprise for my husband and she came and helped me finish strong. I let her do her thing in the garage while I worked inside on clothes and came back 45 minutes later and was shocked at how much she accomplished." - Tiffany
"Before Holly came and gave us a consultation, our house (especially our game room/guestroom/work room which is the same room) was a big giant cluttered mess. My wife is a minimalist and I am a fifth generation hoarder, so we were clashing! Holly gave us practical advice on not only looking at the worth of the item but also looking at the value. She had us consider the clutter and if it is really worth the money, and what do we value more - harmony in our marriage or making an extra 2 dollars on random junk that's laying around everywhere? Since Holly came, we have cleared out our house. We have downsized that one specific room and have sold things quicker. We took different tips from Holly such as different spouses having our own workspaces. Doing things like this has allowed us to not feel like packrats or hoarders anymore, but to have a more peaceful environment which is really a reflection of our marriage as we are maintaining the peace there. Thank you Holly!" -Travis
The peace and calmness it brings is truly a gift.
"When planning a cross country move for myself and my son, I was completely overwhelmed on where to begin. I had items that needed to be sold, thrown away, and packed. Holly came in, listened to my needs and gave me practical steps to get things done. She even set up a calendar for me to organize the individual tasks we came up with - from confirming friend's availability to help with garage sale to posting large furniture items on Craigslist. It made the process much more manageable and less overwhelming. Holly brought wisdom and order into my very chaotic circumstances and gave me vision and a plan. That, in itself, was PRICELESS! I'm so thankful for Holly's experience and knowledge in how to organize well. I love that she generously shares her tools and her "out of the box" thinking to suit ANY need. I'd highly recommend Holly on any project - short or long term - with confidence that she would meet and then exceed any expectations you might have of what working with a professional organizer could do for you!" - Tiffany
"I met Holly today and I am still just in awe about my experience with her! She created such a safe place for me to go through my old belongings and help me downsize old things of my grandmother's--who passed away in April. I was so stressed about all of these things my family, more or less, "dumped" on me. I felt guilty throwing it away, but knew it needed to be gone. I'm so happy she was the person I was able to experience this transformation with. I didn't know what to expect, but I knew I needed it. If you are nervous about having someone help you in an endeavor like this--look no further and hire Holly. She is a god-send. Holly--thank you SO much for your hard work and help today. You are such a sweet woman, who is truly helping others find happiness in their homes."- Jenna
I was completely overwhelmed on where to begin. Holly came in, listened to my needs and gave me practical steps to get things done.
"Holly came to my house and performed miracles in the closets!!Get her in your space soon!" - Micah
"I hired Holly to help me organize my closet and garage. She helped by establishing zones for like items. Holly is a gifted and patient organizer. Her thoughtful questions helped me make decisions and take action to sell or donate items. She is able to provide solutions and recommendations to make the difficulty easier. I would recommend Holly; I know she can help you with your organizing needs." - Joyce
Her thoughtful questions helped me make decisions and take action.
"Holly organized our cluttered garage and guest/storage room (which looked like a tornado hit it with my husband's random collection of hobby items strewn everywhere, and was therefore not exactly "hospitable"), making them look the way I'd dreamed of for several years, but hadn't gotten around to actually doing. She is creative, diligent, and completely trustworthy. Her cheerful energy is contagious, and I only wish she lived in my state so I could put her skills to work in the rest of my house!" - Jana
"Holly helped me sift, sort & organize my house to make room for my daughter & her family to move in until their own house was ready. I am quite disorganized, I must admit. Holly asked good questions to help me decide what to keep & what to eliminate. She has a calm demeanor & a non - judgmental manner. These attributes helped me feel comfortable progressing through my clutter. I truly appreciate her help." - Martha
She has a calm demeanor & a non-judgmental manner.
"We had Holly come to help us organize our house in order to make a move. We were feeling overwhelmed by the task and were under a fast approaching deadline to have our stuff moved out. Holly quickly came into the situation, assessed where we were, and what needed to happen to get us out the door in time. She came up with a systematic approach to organizing and packing that not only got us out of the house with time to spare, she also made it incredibly easy to set up our new home. Holly definitely brought a great attitude to the situation that made us feel like we could accomplish what felt like a monumental task. She literally organized and packed our entire house in a matter of no time and she did it with a smile! Cannot recommend her more highly." - Mike
Holly brought a great attitude that made us feel like we could accomplish what felt like a monumental task.
"It takes true, natural talent to intersect organizational skills with spot-on personalization. Holly doesn't just organize for organization's sake. She takes on the challenge while making sure the job is completed to your own personal needs and desires, sometimes intuitively so. I wish I could pack her in a pretty, lace-covered box and bring her with me every time I move. She brings beauty and order to my jumbled, scattered existence!" - Kristine
"Just before the holidays, I won a Facebook contest for a home organizing session from Holly, and I couldn't be more pleased with how it went! Holly was so chill and so nice, and my 3 year old son warmed to her instantly (which is a big deal). I never felt embarrassed having her get to see all my prolific clutter, or my weird storage situation, or all the times I realized I had no idea why I even owned X item or why it was where it was. She took charge where she could, while empowering me to purge, sort, and re-prioritize in a way that felt freeing, not at all judgmental or scary. The whole process was so motivating; she was here for not even 3 hours but we got SO MUCH DONE, in our front closet but also in our upstairs loft area that has been plaguing me for YEARS as I tried in vain to turn it into usable space. Now, any time I walk by it, I take a deep, satisfying breath and bask in the order. I can't wait to finish "moving in" to that space, now that I can see the big picture for how/where I can place everything. Holly, thank you thank you THANK YOU for your contest, and for generously giving your services, and for giving me parts of my house back!! I'd highly recommend you for everyone I know!" -Leah
Thank you for giving me parts of my house back!
"Holly helped me declutter in my home before a move and get settled and organized in my new home. We worked on several spaces together. She helped me set up an easy system for managing my weekly to-dos, The Sunday Basket - HELLO GAMECHANGER. It's so simple, but so effective. I love that I can get rid of the clutter throughout the week and still rest easy knowing that it will be dealt with in due time. Thank you notes to write? Put the gift card in the Sunday Basket. Bills to pay? Sunday Basket. Magazines to put in the upstairs bathroom? If I'm feeling lazy - Sunday Basket and I'll get to it on Sunday! Amazon returns? Sunday Basket. I'm obsessed. I'm relieved to be settled and organized. I would definitely recommend this service to other moms who are in need of some home organization." - Carissa
"I've known Holly for a few years and she has helped me with several projects to beautify and organize my home. My favorite is my master bedroom and closet. Having Holly help make my master bedroom my haven has been wonderful. It is my favorite! I highly recommend her team for any organization project you have, whether it's large or small. They can handle them all!" - Stefanie
Worth the time, money, and some serious de-stressing.
"When Holly and Liz arrived at my home, they came bearing Starbucks! It was wonderful. They were so kind, thorough, and joyful. They not only organized my craft cabinets in my hallways, but also all of the drawers and cabinets in my built-in desk. Everything is organized and functional, but also looks pretty! Each and every thing has a place in a box, tray, or basket AND a label. I've known Holly for years and she is the perfect person to help bring order and organization in your home. She's an old soul and kindhearted servant and I'm so thankful for her gift of organization. - Rachel

"Holly and her team were amazing! They helped me clear through things that I've had stacked and piled since I was married...almost 6 years ago!! She helped clear our kitchen table (catch all) so we can FINALLY eat dinner as a family! Everything has a place and it taught me how to purge an area before I try and organize it. Worth the time, the money and some serious de-stressing. It reminded me of a scripture in Corinthians. "Everything should be done in a fitting and orderly way". And I had a piece of this that day, and everyday since. The peace and calmness it brings is truly a gift. Thank you again for all your help!" - Lindsey
