"I so appreciated Melissa’s calm and soothing demeanor during a potentially stressful appointment. She is incredibly in tune with you and made an overwhelming task suddenly become manageable.

 

She doesn’t just talk about a plan, she dives in and starts moving items and is the driving force behind your motivation!

 

I highly recommend Melissa for an effective, exciting, and relatively calm experience that will leave you feeling better about your home and yourself!"

"Melissa came to our rescue right when we were about to have a baby (she left our house less than 12 hours before he was born!), and turned a room that I had been intending to use as a guest room, from what my wife and I affectionately called "the hole", into a functioning guest room/music room/entertainment room in just a few hours!

 

She took my ideas and ran with it, and, better yet, taught me how to keep things tidy as our family continues to grow. If you feel overwhelmed in your own space, call her!

 

She'll help turn your home from a place where you sleep into a sanctuary from the outside world."

"Melissa helps you make your surroundings a reflection of the life you want to live. She takes the time to discover who you are and what you are seeking to create in your home and your life.

 

Then she's with you every step of the way while you make a myriad decisions about what to keep, what to remove, and how to store your joy sparking belongings.

 

Whether you hire Melissa for a kick off consultation, a few check-ins throughout the process, or to have her with you every step of the way, I can't recommend her enough to support you through your tidying journey."

"I was downsizing from a 1BHK to a Studio and I've hoarded things over 10 years in my time here in the US. I started spending very little time at home and always outdoors mainly because coming back to a messy home was not appealing. Doing chores was not appealing. Specially when I started travelling a lot... gotten in to a heavy outdoor lifestyle... indoor home hobbies took a back seat.

 

Downscaling to a studio gave me an opportunity to read the Mary Kondo Book .. however, when I wanted to apply it, i did not want to keep referring to th ebook and wanted to efficiently apply the technique in the quickest way possible to speed up the Move process. I invested in learning and applying the techniques right by contacting Melissa Jean.

 

I totally underestimated how much time I need to go through all my things.... We spent 2 days and 7 hours each together... it took 4 hours just to go through my clothes. I must have made 100 decisions in a span of 4 hours. It was definitely an energy drainer and gets you super hungry. We took good eating breaks and also, quickly developed a win-win relationship to conquer this boring task of organizing. 

 

We went through Clothes, then Books, then Papers, then miscellaneous items like Kitchen, Decor, Bathroom and sentimental. Once I got hang of it after Kitchen, Melissa did a great job pushing me through getting through the remaining items and get me to a Kon Mari Maintenance mode.

 

Now, My house is so beautiful to come home to everyday... I have some beautiful indoor plants that bring more joy... every item in the house sparks joy like the book suggests. I hope this lifestyle sticks with me forever and I spread joy/love wherever I go... Being Love/Joy starts from your inner self .. and your home ought to reflect your inner self :)

 

Thank you Melissa for a GREAT KON MARI EXPERIENCE. I have learnt a lot and I continue to practice all the techniques and have reached a point of weekly laundry, daily unwinding of my bags in appropriate places, keeping the sink rid of dishes, dressing up in bright colors daily... weekend wear only in dresses.... this is an ideal lifestyle I had envisioned before contacting you... The Hotel like lifestyle where I am not burdened by chores anymore.

I ended up donating ~100 lbs of clothes and miscellaneous items. This was a huge accomplishment this year."

"My experience with Tidy & Flourish has been truly transformational. I felt like I was suffocating in my own home because of all the built up clutter and stuff we had accumulated.

 

Melissa is so kind and nonjudgmental in such a way that she made me feel comfortable showing her all my embarrassing cluttered spaces that had gotten out of control. Not only has there been a complete physical transformation of my home, but a psychological transformation for myself as well.

 

There were items I was holding onto just because I thought I could use it another time or maybe it had a little life left in it but, when we worked together going through each item intentionally examining how the items made me feel I was completely blown away. I had been holding onto things that were attached to bad memories and things that made me feel dumpy and aided negative self talk. There were things that when Melissa held it up and asked me to hold it with intention I just couldn't even touch it because of the negative memories associated with it even though I had just picked it up an hour before that.

 

The KonMari Method Melissa teaches has shown me to use intention when keeping things and honor the belongings that I treasure. I am now only keeping the things in my home that bring me joy and make me feel good about myself.

 

With Melissa's help I have cleared out over 500 pounds of stuff I wasn't wearing or using anymore and that doesn't even include all the stuff in my garage I got rid of. I am so grateful for Melissa's help, before working with Melissa I was overwhelmed and the tasks seemed to daunting to tackle. Now I realize it can be done and it only takes at most a day to tackle something as big as my overly packed garage.

 

Thank you Melissa for your help, your kindness, and your expertise. I feel like I can truly breathe in my house and I love it. I love everything about my house now and it's so much easier to manage and keep up with the daily tasks in a timely manner."

"I admit I was stuck. Melissa and KonMari saved me! The KonMari method is a real eye opener and not only gave me a sense of freedom but a feeling of calmness.

 

Melissa worked beside me, helping me make decisions based on whether or not the items brought me joy or had a purpose. I had so many clothes that they didn't fit in my closet or my wardrobe dresser. Piles of clothes, shoes and purses. No judgement, just encouragement. A super purge never felt so good!

 

I actually know what I have, what my wardrobe choices are and everything is so neat and tidy. Our bedroom has become a place I feel good about when I enter. The hubs is happy too!

 

Thank you Melissa and KonMari. I am now motivated to continue clearing and organizing the rest of our home. I highly recommend Melissa and look forward to working with her again."

"Going through Melissa's Tidying program has truly changed the way I live, shop and view my possessions. I was going through a major transition in my life (moving/downsizing) and realized I needed help. I got way more then I expected out of it.

 

My life is much simpler now and I attribute a lot of that to working with Melissa. She helped me work through and purge a lot of things from my past and showed me how to organize my house in a way that makes everyday living so much easier. I highly recommend her services!"

"Since Melissa showed me how to use the Konmari in my dōTERRA business I have been able to teach more classes and get to all of my supplies so much easier.

 

Since I began implementing the Konmari Method more in my life, I have noticed I buy less things I don’t “need” and more of what I will use and be happy to give others in my business.
 

Sidenote on clothing.. Who knew I’d love folding my socks and undies. I used to just throw them in a drawer, now they have a nice little bin. I truly appreciate my clothing and what it does for me now.
 

Excited to bring more joy into my life and rid of things that don’t bring that kind of feeling to me.
Would definitely recommend Melissa’s services!"

"Melissa has helped add so much simplicity to my life. I love the feeling of being organized and truly appreciate my belongings.

 

I also never thought I would enjoy folding and organizing my clothes. I greatly appreciate Melissa for opening my eyes to the KonMari method."

"Have you ever walked into a room and didn’t know where to start so you gave up. That was my husband and I.

 

Melissa helped take the emotion out of the process and break things into sections. We were then able to accomplish our goals and feel better about getting rid of stuff. 

It saved our marriage."
