M. Martone is me — Mary Martone.

In the early 1990s, a friend of mine lay on my couch during a visit and complained to the ceiling, “I’d be neater if I had less stuff, like you.”

I opened my closet doors, pointing out the embarrassment of “riches” I had squirreled away, until she was forced to admit that I had as much junk as she did. It was just up and away, and in places I could find it when I needed it.

The next day I started working on her place, and we made it the home and studio she had longed for, but hadn’t quite been able to craft on her own.

Since then, I’ve worked on the west coast and the east coast, for individuals and businesses, and a wide variety of clients who have convinced me that:
1. there’s a lot of stuff out there that needs to be dealt with, and
2. I’m the woman to help you do it.

Believe me when I tell you, I understand stress and clutter. I’m a mom. I love stuff, and have far more books than would probably be considered reasonable… but I’ve also got a good relationship with the balance between bringing things in, and letting them pass back out of my space. If you ever want cool new things, you need to make space for them.

I’m patient, persistent and creative, and I’m good company through stressful or tiring tasks.

Sometimes people feel embarrassed about not having dealt with some organizing job earlier, or frustrated that they just couldn’t do it themselves. We’re all busy, right? You’re a good person where you are right now. Let’s make your surroundings support that!

It feels good to lift a burden. Especially if it’s something you’ve been putting off. So let’s do it!
