Testimonials

“I've never been an 'online learner'. I'm much more a 'hands on learner'. Cassandra's course kept me engaged the entire way through. The testing throughout ensured I was retaining info. Her before and after pictures, labels, videos were all very helpful for my learning style. I learned that I'm a Ladybug...with a bit of cricket...and even some bee. I have already implemented some of her teachings in my own home, and homes of the clients I work with. I would HIGHLY recommend this course. Whether you are wanting to declutter and organize your own home, or start your own organizing business, this is a fantastic course.”

Leanne Cochrane - "The Queen Bee"

“This course was so helpful! The thing I love most about the way Cas teaches is that she breaks everything down into manageable steps - one room, drawer or habit at a time. If you feel like you’re always trying to get organized but you get too overwhelmed with the mess, this course is perfect for you. I often don’t know where to begin on my own house or with clients and, just as Cas promises, this course gave me the confidence I needed to feel like a true “Organizing Expert!” The videos are engaging, easy to follow and so motivating, I was organizing and cleaning my own house before even finishing the course! Plus there are dozens of PDFs and printables for everything she teaches that you can use to implement changes in your own home or with clients. From cleaning routines to goal setting and even meal planning, this course has everything I needed to get my own life organized and feel more confident helping my clients in their home.”

“For many years I have had friends, family and co-workers ask me to help them get organized. When the time came for me to do so I would clam up, lose my creativity. I used to feel like who am I to call myself an organizer. I've had no formal training. And then I came upon Cassandra Aarssen and her clutterbug podcast. I am a FIRM believer in knowledge, and this course gave me the CONFIDENCE I was lacking. The skills I hadn't fine tuned were now No longer an issue. And how different events in our lives can impact our organization at home and work. The course was reasonably priced and the best part is I can go back and refresh my technique. Now when I meet with a potential client, I have a plan. I have a quiz. I know what to ask and what NOT to ask. Learning that before you can organize you must declutter. This has helped me immensely. Whether you plan on making this a career or to help get yourself get organized this course is highly recommended”

“I don't know how else to put it. I felt trapped. I felt hopeless. I hated my home. It stressed me out. I didn't like having company and I was overwhelmed all the time. This helped me to realize I can totally do this. I found simple solutions that were easy to follow. I seriously started loving it so much!!! I enjoy my home. I don't feel stressed all the time. I was going to hire a professional organizer. It would have been beneficial but wouldnt have brought the same value. I have the skills forever now. It is so worth it!!!”

“I bought the class a while ago and held off completing, because I kept feeling my space had unusual needs. Well I'm going through chemotherapy now--and a lot of what would usually work needs major tweaking and I'm weaker than I've been in years and there's this COVID-19 and two pets that require separation from each other in this apartment. I saw a reminder on the course in an e-mail and thought, I can use this course to plan a way to adapt to my new--and hopefully temporary--situation. So don't shy away if you feel you're dealing with crazy circumstances. You can use the ideas to create what you need, to help you make your space work for you--who you are, with the challenges and preferences you have.”

“I had been seeing ads on Facebook for this course for awhile and finally decided to enroll and give it a try. I am a bit of a hot mess, and have been looking for ways to get more organized, and have always wanted to learn how to organize in a way that I could offer this service to others. This course was incredibly helpful! So many tips and tricks that I had never thought of before. I loved watching the video of the work inside a client's home to see how the process actually went in real life. Cassandra did such an amazing job putting this together and I cannot wait for the next course to become available. Take this course, you will be so glad you did!”

“Content and presentation were really good and PDFs were very helpful. I liked that the sessions were broken down and not overly long since I have a short attention span lol. I had read a couple of the Marie Kondo books and couldn't get past the folding of t-shirts! This course of starting small and working up to bigger chunks of time makes total sense to me. While I do frequent the Dollar Store here in SoCal, I would also appreciate knowing where the folks on Hot Mess House got their clothing racks and that great craft closet with the closed doors! I am a bee and while I think I like organizing simplicity, I am terribly detail oriented. What would also be helpful are next steps. Or maybe I should review the material before I go all out and then get overwhelmed??? Thank you, Cas - you have a gift of such people skills and for making those of us introverts feel like a good friend in need of help. I hope your HGTV show really takes off and I think it should resonate with a lot of people! Continued success to you! ”
