Des of Outright Organized is a God- send!
Des is compassionate and understanding but also firm. She has a wonderful sense of humour that makes working with her so enjoyable, even when the work itself isn’t. She is consistent. She knows a lot of people/businesses that I didn’t know existed which saved us a lot of time. She is a professional who is great at her job. You won’t be disappointed.
Desiree, thank you for coming and speaking to our groups. I found you to be very approachable, open, honest, and willing to listen to all and gave such beautiful compliments back to the clients, they felt heard and listened to. You were calm, engaging, and made things simple to understand. Here are some of the remarks back from the groups – “what she said was very inspirational to me”, “it made a lot of sense and I could understand her”, I liked the idea of putting the hangers back in backwards, that helps me to know what I wore or not”, “wow, I have the same file system, so now I know what I can do and use it”.

I have been working with Des since the spring of 2016. What started out as a kitchen unpacking, packing, repacking, disposing, and organizing project turned into a full house organization. After 9 months of Des’ hard work, and empathy, my new kitchen and my house was totally organized from top to bottom. She is fun, sympathetic, understanding and most of all, never makes you feel “gosh what a mess that closet was”. I now use her service twice a year for what we call “maintenance”. She will come and organize a particular area of my house, be it my closet, or my pantry in the kitchen. For example, I will let her take out everything in my closet, she will help dispose my clothes for donation, then, fold or roll neatly my clothes that stay. It is pure luxury, in my opinion to have someone like Des to give me a hand. Psychologically speaking I will never be able to get rid of things that I have not worn for years on my own. Des, I can never be able function without your magic wand twice a year. Oh, she also loves my cats which is a big bonus.
In July of 2019, my husband and I sold our home of 32 years. My first call was to Desiree as we had storage space in our house that was full of “stuff” plus an office full of “papers”. Desiree almost lived at our house until we left on August 28th. She sorted and packed every room in the house. She helped us to decide what we needed to dispose of and what we could keep that would fit in our new Condo. Her help in deciding about “treasures” was invaluable. Desiree saved my life in that period of time as we also dealt with some health issues. I have since recommended her to a couple of friends and they were similarly pleased with her service.

I am so pleased that I hired Des, Outright Organized, to help me sort, clear and de-clutter. My kitchen cupboards are now a joy to open and the linen cupboard is a work of art. Des is cheerful, helpful, and never judgmental, even when faced with nearly 50 years worth of a collector’s “treasures”. I am planning to have a kitchen renovation done this spring, and having the cupboards and space sorted and organized I know that I can much more easily face this, which I have wanted to do for years.
Thank you, Des, – I really appreciate all your help.
I would highly recommend yourself and your business – 5 star – to anyone who needs to organize and de-clutter a situation. I think an organized environment gives a sense of calm to the environment. I was so impressed when we first met how quickly you knew what had to be done and how you would go about it and when we could do it. Your professionalism and friendly positive nature is much appreciated. The end result was a perfect solution to a difficult situation. I wanted my brother to come home to an organized environment where he could still be at ease. I was amazed at how directed you were when I stopped in. I would recommend yourself and your business to anyone – I like dealing with positive individuals seeing the results of organized planning and a feeling of satisfaction when a job is complete! Thanks Again
THANK YOU for your help these past few months! I couldn’t get to where I am today without your kind assistance! Not only did we declutter my “things”, but you also helped me shed an old mind and skin that I unnecessarily hung onto for a long, long time and didn’t know how to move past. I really appreciate your compassionate approach, i.e., working to suit my values and working in a way that is suitable for how I was feeling at each stage. It allowed me the space and time to adjust to the change. Your kindness and genuine concern for my well-being were very present each time we worked together, and I’d happily recommend you to anyone who needs that gentle guidance and assistance to find a new level of clarity, freedom, and confidence. It’s amazing how much material stuff can weigh down one’s life.
Working with Outright Organized has been a life changing experience – for the better!
Thank you so much for stepping in and taking such good care of my clients declutter needs ahead of them listing their home for sale. Your tireless work decluttering and ultimately staging the home with the client’s own items made all the difference – it really did. Buyers could SEE the home in its best light. And now it’s Sold.
