Getting organized is simple; simple isn’t always easy.
The Calm in the storm
As a seasoned professional, Andrea brings expertise and a sense of calm that can only come from years of experience helping clients like you. She’s a hands-on organizer who faciliates the decision-making process and helps you stay focused so you can achieve your desired outcomes.
There will not be any bossing you around, no making you feel worse than you already do. There will be respect, help, guidance, support, and encouragement.
My promise to you
As a member of the National Association of Productivity and Organizing (NAPO), I subscribe to and follow a code of ethics. At the core are respect, honesty, and strict confidentiality. In short, I treat others how I want to be treated.
I do not believe in the notion of “magic” in tidying up, nor do I believe in offering a one-size-fits-all approach. Why? Because everyone is different, therefore solutions should be tailored to the individual circumstance, too.
– Andrea Brundage

But can you help me?
People often ask, “Have you ever seen anything this bad?” My answer is yes! In all my years of organizing, I have probably seen it all. And here’s the deal: If for some reason I am unable to help you, I will happily refer you to someone who can.
If you’re like me, you like to make informed decisions.
Take a few minutes to explore this website to get to know me. Take advantage of the free gifts; watch unscripted, authentic video testimonials from past clients; read Google Reviews; watch my How To videos, and read my blog posts. I think you’ll like what you see.
At the end of the day, I want you comfortable in knowing that you’re working with an organizer who possess qualified experience, and who is compassionate, committed, and exceptionally competent.
And then, let’s get started!
Below is a list of common questions I’ve heard during my 15+ years of doing business. If you have other questions that aren’t addressed here, simply complete the Get Started form and enter those questions in the Description box.
Where do we start? The first thing is to either 1) click on the yellow tab to schedule a free 20-Minute consultation, or 2) complete the Get Started form.
How do I overcome my embarrassment about the mess? It’s my goal and my intention to make things better, not worse. I understand that this might be an emotional time for you, it’s okay. I’m here to help you, not judge you.
Will you make me get rid of everything? No, I will help facilitate the decision-making process by navigating the project and helping you make decisions that support your end goal. I will never force you to get rid of something that you’re not ready to release.
How long will it take? A lot depends on your motivation and readiness, the size and scope of the project, and how quickly you can make decisions. It’s also important to note that I will help you as little or as much as you need. I can take you through the entire project, or if you’re inclined to continue on your own, I can get you started and then leave you with Next Steps instructions.
I don’t have a clutter problem, but I just want some organizational help. Do you do that? Yes! Many clients just need some help with “life flow” – where things are placed in their homes and/or office spaces. Or there may be some small trouble spots that need some refining. Others are project specific: Organize my pantry or closet, or help me set up my home office space. If it relates to organization, I’m qualified and happy to help.
What if I want to do the work myself, but I need some direction and accountability? Are you a coach? Absolutely! Coaching is a cost-effective way to be a DIY’er (Do-It-Yourself) and still have full access to my expertise. And, you can still purchase in-person organizing sessions, if you wish.
What if the clutter returns? Breaking established dysfunctional habits is hard to do and that’s why I created my Maintenance Program. If you start falling back into old your habits, or want to have an accountability partner, this plan is great for you! It’s cost effective, offers accountability, and monthly in-person or virtual check-ins.
Do you work with seniors? Will you help me or my parents with downsizing? Yes, I’ve helped many senior clients with downsizing and rightsizing their possessions. Additionally, I have worked with many families dealing with aging parents and processing possessions in anticipation of or after moves to care facilities and beyond.
Do you work with every person that calls you for help? Not necessarily. See How It Works for more information on the process and why it’s important to go through the steps.
What’s your service area? Generally speaking, my service area is Metro-Phoenix. I am willing to travel outside the area, however, trip charges may apply. Overnight and out-of-state travel includes reimbursement of travel expenses and reasonable accommodations associated with the project.
Can I buy a Gift Certificate for someone? Yes! Reach out to me and we’ll discuss in more detail.
Andrea’s been published, interviewed, or featured on
“Andrea made a visit to my home in December just before the holidays. My closest (aka mom’s closet, aka the catch-all closet) was so overwhelming to me that I didn’t really know what was in there. It was unmanageable and frustrating every time I walked in there. With a few strategies and suggestions that were specific to how I do my daily living, we found flow and organization that made the space intentional – with the best flow and purpose for how I function. Andrea never told me what to get rid of and what to keep, but instead guided me with empathy and gentleness through the process of me determining what was serving me, and what was controlling me in my space. There was great power and empowerment in having her there as sort of an unspoken permission to purge of things that no longer served me, and that could serve someone else better. It has been 5 months, and my closet is still in top shape and serves me well. An unexpected bonus was that I used the same strategies and heartspace that Andrea opened my eyes to, and have tackled other areas of my home. I still have some work to do, but I can feel the freedom and peace in my physical space increasing every day. Andrea is a professional, empathetic, an expert and a pleasure to work with.”
“The gratitude that I have for Andrea Brundage and Simple Organized Solutions (SOS) goes far beyond being thankful for her coaching me through the task of learning and implementing QuickBooks for my business. She reminded me that we make progress “one entry at at time” and that gave me the needed calm and perseverance to move through my paperwork without fear and anxiety. Her coaching has empowered me to see the big picture without being afraid. I have learned to take a monumental task and to break it down into smaller bite-sized pieces so it is not daunting nor is it overwhelming anymore With Andrea’s guidance, we have automated my accounting procedures which has resulted in me regaining an extra 10+ hours per month! What is most interesting is that this project started with her helping me get my accounting system up-and-running, but I have found that I am implementing her organizational coaching techniques in other areas of my life. Because of this, I am enjoying increased clarity and calm.”
“Andrea did an amazing job helping me bring order and calm to my condo. She has amazing energy and a very positive attitude. She teaches you how to keep things the way they are, and doesn’t just do it for you. She is incredible and well worth your time.”
“Andrea helped me find space in my kitchen for a crafting cabinet. She saw where I was not utilizing space and showed me how to use it to my best advantage. Andrea’s very kind easy going person to work with and as very positive attitude. I highly recommend her.”
“Andrea was wonderful. Her kind and gentle approach to a my dreaded task of organizing a sewing and painting space made it actually fun! In 4 hours she was able to help me prioritize and identify what things were of use and what things were not. Not only did I get my painting space, she called me the next day to make sure that I finished my “homework”. Thank you Andrea. I am feeling much lighter and happier in my new space!”
“Andrea is a lifesaver. Went to Mesa to help my brother after surgery. Home needed help also, Andrea was referred by cleaning service. Called and she came by the same day, Wow. She has a great eye for what needs to be done. Very professional and non judgmental. She’s worked with my brother on how to do process of organizing while I was there. He’s continued working with her and the results are amazing and life changing!! You come away from the experience feeling like you’ve made a new friend. Also her husband, Tim, is a handyman so he was able to haul off trash and do some repairs, what a team!!! Would highly recommend!!!”
“I found Andrea online after looking for someone to help coach me in some decisions about starting my own business in organization. I read her reviews and saw her 5 star rating and decided to give her a call. She was so easy to talk to and had some incredibly helpful information that I was able to take and use. I appreciated her calm, happy disposition and willingness to answer all and any of my questions. I really appreciated all of her help and highly recommend her if you’re needing some coaching.”
