"Annie Carouba is a visionary and a blessing. She helped me with a daunting and overwhelming task, tackling disorder and clutter that was beyond my capacity to resolve.
“With Annie’s mighty patience, kindness, and gracious guidance, we made order and functionality out of long-standing chaos. I never felt judged or pushed, only sincerely supported. Annie has an innate gift of creating beauty and peace out of even the worst disorder, and shares that gift generously.
“I highly recommend Annie. If you want real results and resolution, Annie Carouba can help!"
"Annie completely transformed our home - working with her has been an absolute dream! My only regret was that we didn't call Annie sooner!
Annie visited our home, listened to us closely to help assess our needs (and asked really great questions to help us consider a number of things we hadn't thought of before). She then made incredibly spot on recommendations for various improvements to help make our home more functional and to address the specific challenges we were having. But most importantly, she then worked with us directly to execute and implement those recommendations. She took care of purchasing items for us, created idea boards for our review, helped us declutter and organize entire rooms, and implemented design solutions for us.
Our house is now a place where we can recharge, where everything has a place, and we also no longer spend hours hunting down lost items. She really brought order to chaos and implemented solutions that make our house feel so much more like a home - a place of rest and relaxation, rather than clutter and stress.
On a personal level, we loved meeting Annie - she is such a warm and welcoming person, completely non-judgmental, extremely understanding and filled with grace. I highly recommend her to anyone!!!"

"Annie helped with with a very personal project I just couldn't get rouse the energy for or get my head around. She came, she organized, we came up with a plan to decorate and enhance the room. Now I have a space for me that is beautiful, organized and I'm able to finally follow my dreams in my own studio. Thank you, Annie! Can't wait to get started on the garage!!!"

"I had been putting off cleaning and organizing my closet for an entire year. When Annie arrived to help me with this project I felt instantly relieved by her calming, grounding presence and confident, energetic vision of what the transformation could be. Annie not only patiently took me step by step into letting go of clutter I no longer needed in my life, but made it an easy and even joyful experience. My closet now looks amazing and my life feels lighter all because of Annie’s unique organizational support.”

"In the year after my house burned down in the Tubbs fire, Annie helped me on several occasions.
“She helped me get established in a new, temporary place, and quickly replace furniture, office and kitchen supplies so I would have some semblance of normalcy. Like many fire refugees, I had to move several times. Annie helped me pack and unpack each time, and I was grateful for her exceptional organization skills. I was at loose ends after the fire and it was hard to remain focused on the many tasks required, but Annie kept me moving forward, and she made the process of relocating a calm and focused experience. The way she organized the packing made it simple to unpack, which was kind of amazing.
“She also helped me compile an extremely long contents list that I had to submit to my insurance company. The task was daunting: Account for every single possession that had been in my house before the fire, down to the last paper clip in the junk drawer. Annie broke the task down into manageable parts, and she helped me walk through each room of the house in my mind’s eye, which was remarkably effective.
“Annie doesn’t only have great organizational skills; she is also compassionate and warm in her approach. I never felt judged by Annie, and I never felt rushed. It seemed that she knew exactly how far she could push me, and when to take a step back, a skill in itself. She made everything easier than it would have been otherwise. Annie is a remarkable organizer."

"Annie worked with us to organize our garage this past weekend and she was amazing! I am a minimalist and my husband is a pack rat so having her guidance and support was paramount. We had talked about doing this project for 6 years because when we combined households a whole side of the garage got filled with stuff we never touched or used. First of all, I assumed this project would take days. We were done in about 6 hours from soup to nuts. I feel like I just lost 20 pounds! And the most satisfying part was the smile on my husbands face at the end of the day as he was not looking forward to this experience. Thank you Annie for making this fun, creative and deeply satisfying! Next project is the laundry room and our master bedroom closets. I highly highly recommend Annie. The investment to do a project with her is worth it beyond measure!"
