from Valerie W of St. Louis, MO

It is with mixed feelings that I received my daughter’s announcement of her Mother’s Day gift to me this year.   During her long weekend visit home we would finally tackle the 50 years of accumulating chaos in my one car extended garage.  To make sure we actually accomplished the job, she had hired a professional organizer named Terry Capehart.  Oh, my!  There was no more putting it off…

Arriving right on time on an otherwise lovely spring day, Terry began to work her magic, quickly easing the concerns I had as we painlessly sorted boxes and items filled with old memories and some misplaced treasures.  Piles of boxes and bags went to charities or trash; the rest got organized!!  After 9 hours over a two-day period, the garage has been transformed.  I now enjoy my Mother’s Day present on a daily basis, thanks to my generous (and hard-working) daughter, and the kind and efficient Terry.

Thanks so much for your help.  Your time was invaluable and organizational help was a lifesaver for us.  Thanks for keeping me moving and on task throughout our sessions.  I couldn’t have done it without you.  Your help made our home so much more ready to live in.  You truly have a gift!

I enjoy my cleaned up closet every day.  Thanks again for helping me get it in shape.

from Georgia V of Chesterfield, MO

Thank you SO much!  I am now on a roll….I’ve delivered all the Goodwill piles.  I actually went through a couple of my Mom’s boxes.  I made an appointment for next Thursday at Second Sitting.  And…I cleaned out my refrigerator, freezer, and pantry…both upstairs.  Thank you for pushing me just enough to just get it done.  It feels great.  Now I want to have a party in my storage room.  You are awesome!

from Amy M and Gary B of St. Louis, MO

Terry is amazing in the many ways she helped us.  Not only did she completely organize our 4 bedroom house in several months, but she also suggested excellent people to go to for home repairs, donations, sale of silver and antiques, junk hauling, etc.  She is so nice and is always very professional.  She goes the extra mile to sort papers, kitchen items, garages, linens, donate clothes, get used furniture picked up, taking items to be shredded for us, and getting our whole house looking absolutely wonderful!  We give her our highest recommendation and she is also very reasonable.  She is the best!!  In addition, Terry’s organizing allowed us to get the maximum charitable donation on our tax returns, over $5,000 in tax refunds!
