“When Carol comes, it makes me happy because when she leaves I’ve unburdened a lot of stuff – all the psychological manifestations of my essential disorganization. We have fun, we make progress, and it’s better than therapy!”
from Melanie Anderson (virtual closet design)
I was building a new home last year and was overwhelmed with planning my master closet. I needed help to develop a great plan to best use the space. I hired Carol Jones to design my closet. She was extremely helpful with providing initial questions for me to consider and then making a design that best fit my needs. She was also very willing and available to modify and tweak the design until it was just what I wanted. I have no idea what I would have ended up with if just turning it over to the builder. I would highly recommend Carol to help with this process!!

P.T. (kitchen & bathroom organizing)
“Carol Jones has been assisting me with home organization. I’ve been overwhelmed in doing it myself, and Carol came to my rescue. In my kitchen pantry, laundry closet and bathroom she pulled out everything, organized items in common, brought in containers that made all items visible and labeled each container. She even took things I no longer wanted to the Goodwill, which made the entire process much easier for me. I highly recommend Carol as a super organizer. I couldn’t have done it without her. I feel much better when I can now find things in my home. Thank you Carol.”
from Julia Winston (storage re-design)
“I thank my lucky stars for Carol Jones! I just moved into a new house and knew that if I wanted to set myself up for an organized life I would need to create systems from square 1. The problem was, I didn’t know what systems to set up or how to do it. Carol has been like a dream come true! She’s taken the time to get to know me, the way I move through my home, offer creative and strategic ideas for keeping myself organized, then efficiently getting the job done. The best part is, Carol is hilarious and delightful. I can’t recommend Carol highly enough!”
from Dani Steece (storage re-design)
“I was referred to Carol by a colleague of mine and I’m so glad I got in touch with her. She was able to help me a get a couple of areas organized in a quick and efficient manner. It relieved a lot of our stress and improved functionality in the spaces. Carol is awesome! Highly recommend!”

“Carol helped me find a starting place that felt manageable and useful in an overwhelming international move with small children.”
from Ruth Pennebaker (decluttering and kitchen & closet storage re-design)
“Carol Jones came into our condo, quickly assessed our situation and various issues, and helped us decide what changes we really wanted to make. Three hours later, our kitchen was in better, more organized shape, and our walk-in closet had been emptied out of clothes we no longer wore. She even took our discarded clothes and other items to charities for us! Carol is a gem: hard-working, intuitive, and tactful. I highly recommend her.”
from Julie Simmons (decluttering)
“Thanks so much for your help. You helped us accomplish in a couple of hours something we seemed to not be able to do ourselves for a decade, so it’s a huge deal.”
from Nanci Tucker (garage organizing)
“Thank you again for your time and interest in helping us get organized. Every time I drive in to the garage, I have a sense of great peace. I feel like we found new space!”
from Nanci Tucker (kitchen and pantry organizing)
from Tyson Goeltz (closet design and installation)
“We knew we needed new closet systems but didn’t know how or where to go. Carol to the rescue! Carol helped us design the right layouts for our closets, while being conscious of budget & material shortages. Not only did she design, she demoed our existing closets & installed everything herself. It was great to work with one knowledgeable person from start to finish…she took great care of our home & set us up with great systems from The Container Store. Thank you Carol!”
from Delores Hill (decluttering)
“Polite, energetic, thoughtful, creative, structured and balanced with the best interest of the client at the forefront of all your projects! Oh and an extremely hard worker!”
from Fred Wilbur (closet & garage design and installation)
“I want to sincerely thank Carol Jones for her amazing help redesigning and organizing our garage and two master closets. I already had ideas as to what I thought would work regarding designing the workbench and storage areas. Even with a lifetime of home handyman projects, I thought it might be worth the cost of admission to have Carol come in just on a consulting basis to toss around ideas regarding design and materials, but I intended to do the work myself. After a very nice discussion sharing Ideas, I realized that I liked all of Carol’s ideas better than my own. But the ideas didn’t stop there. Over the next couple of days she messaged and called me with additional awesome ideas. Carol has resources, ideas and materials that were way beyond me. I realized that it was to my advantage to just let Carol do the whole job. The result was way beyond my hopes.
D.B. (virtual storage re-design)
“Carol was able to offer virtual consultation to my son and his girlfriend in California and to me in Sweden. My son and his girlfriend were moving into a new apartment and Carol helped them make the best use of their limited space – critical for people forced to work from home during the pandemic. Carol also helped me reorganise my remodeled kitchen. I really appreciated the time Carol took to get to know me and my preferences before making suggestions. Now my kitchen works for how I cook, rather than just following “rules” of what goes where. Throughout the process (on both continents!) Carol was enthusiastic, creative, professional, and patient. And it was all even more impressive since she did the work remotely!”
from Heather McKissick
“Real women use tools! What a great course offering by organizer extraordinaire Carol Jones. Carol is my first call whenever I need help making space at home more efficient. I think this is an inspired idea to help women feel more confident and self reliant in any situation.”
from L Davis (paper management)
“Working with Carol Jones of a Jones for Organizing was easy as pie! First, she promptly returned my initial email and the initial phone consultation was simple. I asked for her help with organizing my files and let her know my budget. On the day of our appointment, she came prepared with a label maker, file folders, and a plan. Throughout the process, she asked practical questions about how I use my files and made lots of “why didn’t I think of that?” suggestions. At the end of our session, my files were perfectly organized. The best thing about working with Carol was how easy the whole process was. She’s pleasant, efficient, responsive, and motivating. What more could you ask for?”
from Martha Cole (storage re-design)
from Nancy Loe (storage re-design)
“Carol is a delight to work with – creative, clever, flexible, patient and she listens. She has a solution for anything! Carol not only designed a laundry room that functions beautifully, she also included storage for all of our office supplies, paper products, and party supplies. Everything’s organized and centrally located and very easy to keep stocked up. It freed up an incredible amount of space in our kitchen and garage to implement her plans.”
from A.W. (closet design and installation)
“Carol organized our 9 closets, our pantry and our garage in our new home, and she did a perfect job. The organization systems she designed and installed over a year ago are still keeping our home and garage clean and organized. She has a gift for being able to look at a huge mess and quickly create order from chaos. Her knowledge of storage & organization options and installation from her years of experience in the industry is invaluable. It’s a pleasure working with Carol – she’s upbeat, very efficient, always professional and we highly recommend her organization services.”
from Tara K. (virtual closet design)
“I’d moved into a house where the dressing room had no built in closet racks or shelves – just bare walls. Instant panic! I contacted Carol, and working with her solely via email she provided me with a fantastic solution. I simply sent her measurements and photos of the space, along with estimated quantities of clothing, and she designed a custom space which perfectly fitted my requirements. She sent me the proposed layout, we made a few changes and I simply ordered the required components online. Installation was a breeze – and I say that as a very non-handy, drill impaired klutz! I especially loved that I was easily able to tweak the layout. When I moved, I was able to remove the components and re-utilize them differently in the new house.”
from Denise Becker (kitchen and pantry organizing)
“When we bought our house, I was completely overwhelmed. I had always been a renter and never gave much thought to organizing my space. My basic organization style was to shove, pile, or stuff. But now I had a brand new kitchen and felt immense pressure to “do it right.” However, I had no idea where to even start.
So I called Carol.
She asked many questions about my personal style and listened carefully to the answers. I presented two primary challenges: I had a lot of stuff, and I am not someone who wants to spend a lot of time keeping things in place. So a complicated organizational scheme would not work for me. I was looking for something that would be intuitive and easy to maintain without a lot of thought or effort.
Carol did an amazing job! The pantry looks like something out of a magazine. Plus, it’s been nearly two years, and my pantry is still organized (which, believe me, if the organization plan wasn’t super easy to keep up, the pantry would have quickly degenerated into cans and boxes piled on top of each other)! Carol also organized my kitchen cupboards and drawers, and I never have to spend more than a few seconds looking for something.
In addition to being professional, Carol is also very fun to work with. She always made me feel very comfortable, and she was creative and fast in coming up with solutions. Thanks to Carol, I love my new kitchen and feel relaxed when I enter it. I can now concentrate on the cooking, rather than spending my time searching for various utensils and other items and getting frustrated.
Thank you Carol!”
from Becky Gomolka (garage organizing)
“Carol recently gave us one of those wonderful “Ahhhh” moments, combined with “We should have done this years ago!” She did this by solving a long-time “wish list” item for us: we got our two bikes OUT of the study and into the garage where they belong!
On the day, Carol arrived right on time. She assessed our garage space and asked us about our use of the garage and use of the bikes, and based on this information, she helped us figure out the best place to store them.
Here are all the ways Carol impressed me:
1. Her good questions about how we use the garage and how often we use the bikes.
2. Her ability to visualize the “after” result while still in the planning phase.
3. Once the location was chosen, she got right to work and was a whiz with all her tools!
4. When she decided the first rack was not the right one, she said it before I even had a chance to be concerned and immediately decided upon a better solution.
5. Carol is a total professional, absolutely has the customer as her first priority, and as an added bonus, is totally fun to be around!
We could not be happier and are still smiling every time we drive into the garage and walk into the suddenly roomier study. Thank you Carol!”
