I can not express how well spent my time with Olwen Turtle went! First off, I called her in October 2020 which was way too early, as we did not end up moving until late March of 2021. After the dust settled and I had unpacked, I realized I was not at all happy with the way I had set up my kitchen. I was anxious to get at least the kitchen boxes emptied but the final result made me very unhappy! Ti...

But what a great job you had done preparing and doing your homework before our session. You are absolutely organized! You did all the hard work , and it made it so much easier for me to come in and help you tweak . Of course the correct Containers & organizers are ...

The service provided was excellent. Olwen worked not only with myself but with my husband to go through years of stuff that we hid in this storage room. She helped us sort and organize our mess. Once this was done we were able to see the full potential of the cleared space. Olwen is truly a treasure she helped me get over my feelings of being overwhelmed at tackling this big project. Step by step ...

Olwen was absolutely amazing! Explained her approach, gave useful tips, very kind and thoughtful to both me and the space. Rolled up sleeves and dug into work (safely of course). Gave me lots to think about in terms of evaluating space and offer different perspective. Overall, the room looks 1,000 tim3s

Olwen is very talented. She helped me immensely. She was thorough and very clever about how to organize one's creative space. I had a great experience and the best part is I can find all my materials to start creating again!

I don't know if I can find enough adjectives to describe Olwen's service. She's prompt, courteous, personable, and efficient. We just moved. I was totally overwhelmed with boxes and kitchen "stuff" to the point where I could no longer think straight. Olwen approached the task with calm and clarity. I wish I had taken 'before' photos. She found the logical place for everything. She also gave me ide...

I was happy to jump into your many boxes and help you make sense of the limited space in your new rental home . Space assignment isn’t easy especially when your last home had lots of space for every single thing . And then you find in your new home , the rooms are smaller and have a lot less storage . It makes my job much more satisfying to know that after we worked together in your kitchen / dini...

Working from home during COVID has some unexpected issues, mainly our little "home office" wasn't intended for heavy, daily use and was frequently just a mess to manage everyday. A Good Sort came in, following COVID guidelines and safety, to reset this space for optimal functionality and also made it a more pleasant space in which to pass the day. Outstanding transformation!

Needed to be able to exercise at home and couldn't figure out how to make the room. A Good Sort came and worked it out, so now there is storage and a functional home gym. Really impressed.

Olwen helped my niece with special needs with assessing items in her bedroom and closet to determine what furniture and storage items she needs to maximize her space. Olwen made suggestions and helped her research some different furniture pieces to purchase from Ikea as options. They measured the spaces in the bedroom to make sure all the furniture would fit well within the room and with each othe...

What a pleasure it was working with your niece . She was very open to new ideas and so excited to get her room the way she wanted it! As she had restrictions with space in her bedroom and closet she found it very helpful to have someone with a fresh pair of eyes to throw out different ideas and also help look for suitable furniture within her budget . Space assignment is a big part of getting orga...
