Here's what some people had to say...




Getting organized has been a dream of mine for as long as I can remember.  I spent years trying to do the self-help version of getting my house in order; I even bought the “Organizing for Dummies” book!  Needless to say, I was near devastation when I had not gotten organized after being in our new place for almost exactly one whole year.  My new neighbor, who became one of my best friends, was moved in and organized within 2 months with a 2 month breast-feeding baby in tow!!

I was near the end of my rope!  I had researched some Professional Organizers in the Bay area and started calling, emailing and leaving messages for a few of them.  Finally, I asked my new neighbor, Ruma, what her secret was.  Just my luck as she was a life-long organizing specialist.  She offered to help me and my life changed.   She had a newborn baby and was home for maternity leave.  Her little boy was an angel and I marveled at her energy. 


Even though we were forming a friendship, Ruma was very professional and personable. The first time she came over to do the initial assessment, she never gasped or showed any reaction to make me feel badly about my way of living, or the fact that my family and I had lived there for a year already and looked like we just moved in yesterday!

We systematically went through the house and prioritized places that needed decluttering and space planning immediately.  Her suggestion was the kitchen first then the master bedroom, my daughter's bedroom then all three bathrooms.  She helped me get these spaces perfect and gave me the motivation to do the rest of my house on my own (including our garage) with her expert guidance and great tips.  Her zen-like decorating skills went into high gear as she helped me design and organize a peaceful, backyard-seating and grilling space as well.


I am so proud of my home and I no longer need to go for long drives to clear my head because my house is clutter free and I can stay home to enjoy my serene living space. Ruma, THANK YOU for improving my quality of living!  We are now looking to purchase a second home on the north coast and we would not even think of moving in until Ruma reviews all the room layouts and helps us with the space planning and purchase of new furniture!

Ruma came in and took charge in the nicest way possible.  She is assertive, not aggressive.  My family and I had fallen into a state of disarray after combining households and not having any proper systems in place for us to stay organized.  Now my downstairs area is completely in "flow" and I can't wait until we start in on the rest of the house.  Thank you, Ruma, you literally changed the way we live!

Ruma helped after our office moved to a smaller space. She has great practical ideas on space and her attention to details is awesome. Little things like how to label cabinets and files was very helpful. We have a very large library/conference room where she categorized and organized all of our books and compact discs.  Our downstairs storage room was a drop off point for a lot of extra stuff like holiday and event decor to name a few. Ruma totally helped me get that space in order as well.  She even helped me load my truck (more than once) and take a huge pile of donations to the goodwill station.  In addition to all of this, Ruma has an infectious personality and is super friendly!

I love Ruma's ability take my vision and make it a reality. I had an idea for our kitchen, but stewed over it for years, caught up in the price and time commitment of adding an entire built-in cabinet. After listening to my goals for the area, Ruma suggested an affordable solution that we implemented in a day - two organizing sessions to be exact! She has a great eye for functionality, and makes sure it is compatible with our lifestyle. I absolutely recommend Ruma without hesitation.

After years of my husband begging me to get organized (and also years of trying to do it myself), I finally decided to start looking for help.  I found Ruma on the internet.  After researching several other websites, I decided to call her.  I chose her because I really enjoyed her philosophy around organizing with her mantra "release|re-imagine|reuse|repeat". This simple statement and the fact that her website made me feel calmer as I was looking at it was what got me intrigued.  Not to mention that her rates and packages are so reasonable compared to other Bay Area organizing shops. She could easily charge a lot more and is well worth it.  I told her this during our phone call and you wouldn't believe what she told me.  She said that rather than charge higher rates, it is more important to her to create great flow in people's lives, especially families, as the benefits to others come back to her as well!

When she got to my house, it was as if I had known her for years.  She is very friendly and outgoing and easy to get along with.  She wasn’t in shock over the condition of my kids’ playroom, nor did she pass any judgment on the state of my kitchen and family room.  She went over ideas she had and then went to work.  The playroom turned out fantastic.  And even though with three kids, it can’t remain as perfect as the day she left, how she organized their toys makes it much easier and faster for them to clean up themselves. 

She also organized my home office which my husband was very grateful for.  Every drawer and shelf is organized and now my husband can find everything he looks for.  Ruma also decorated my formal living/game room.  The bookshelves in this room were filled with junk and mainly the kids’ random things.  Ruma rearranged what was on the bookshelves in a very interesting way and organized the room so it no longer looks like a frat house or a daycare.  Her patience and teaching skills have prompted me to try my kitchen on my own using her great tips and techniques. Thanks Ruma for finally making my house look like grown-ups live in it!

Ruma is a genius!  She is part project manager and part therapist. The core of her magic is asking the right questions for clients to ask themselves. Who uses this item? How do they use it? Where do they use it?  This provided the foundational basis for how we organize ourselves.  She hasn't just organized our house, she organized our brains!
