"After Andrew's session at CPSC last month, I felt energized to work through my stuff, so I got his book. I never thought I’d enjoy a book about organizing so much! I’m in the process of moving in with my partner and Andrew's advice and tips for deciding what to keep (which I struggle with particularly!) and where things should live have been invaluable in helping us create an organized and clutter-free home together. I started the process mired in stress because of the sheer quantity of stuff and his disorganization and Andrew's methods have significantly reduced that stress and made the process actually somewhat fun! Thank you!"
"Andrew's work was invaluable in helping my husband of just a few years and I get control over the clutter created from the conglomeration of yours-mine-ours stuff as we merged households. Using his tools and suggestions, we emptied 11 storage containers uncovering some objects dating back to 1991. At the end of the process we are still married, still speaking (!) and many people and organizations are the happy recipients of our unneeded stuff! Thank you, thank you, thank you!"
“Andrew Mellen is efficient, no-nonsense, practical and persistent. He delivers order from chaos and he does it fast. I’m still not used to all the clean surfaces and orderly files and figuring out what to do with all the time and energy he's saved me!”
“My partner and I were converting our garage into a sunroom when we reached out to Andrew. Using his special visual and organizational gifts, along with his sharp skills in diplomacy, Andrew was able to break our loggerhead, and provide us a wonderfully imaginative and visually stunning alternative to either of our original ideas. He brought a unified and focused vision to every aspect of the room—windows, doors, flooring, shelves and storage, furniture, paint colors and trim. Everyday we appreciate the beauty and balance Andrew brought to our sunroom and what he has added to the quality of our lives.”
“My life has been changed by Andrew. With his help, I moved my professional office, set up new cutting-edge systems, and have maintained accurate accounts. Andrew is brilliant, innovative, remarkably flexible and 100% reliable."
"Andrew absolutely surpassed his formidable reputation. 12 hours ago I was confused, afraid and annoyed—now I am relieved, motivated, dirty, empowered and can see a light at the end of the tunnel for the first time in over a year and a half. Andrew’s Wizard of Oz reference was also spot on. I literally found my ruby red Gucci slippers in the closet after he left. He exudes deliciousness, generosity and a confidence which are contagious. Thank you, thank you, thank you!"
"Thank you, Andrew! This weekend I tried on every shirt in my closet that I don't wear regularly and kept only the ones that fit and were likely to be worn. Why did I ever buy striped shirts? I don't *wear* striped shirts. Half my closet is empty now and it's such a relief. I can't believe I had 50 shirts that didn't fit... um, no, I can definitely believe it. Never again!"
"Working with Andrew transformed a tax audit into a blessing in disguise. He got me focused and organized for my future. The entire process was extremely helpful and I don't know what I would’ve done with out him. He was patient, practical and turned a very complex situation into something simple and easy to manage. He is amazing!"
“Since working with Andrew, I’m more creative, purposeful and have accomplished things that had been stagnating for a long time. I’m much less emotionally attached to things and more in tune with what really matters—my life with the people I love!“
"With warmth, curiosity, humor and a total lack of judgment, Andrew came in, helped me sort through years of accumulated crud and spearheaded a major purge of the basement. He set up enormously helpful filing, bought supplies, shopped for appliances and took on thorny, unpleasant consumer complaint issues that I would have avoided. He is great!"
“The effects of Andrew’s work with us were amazingly immediate—we were inspired and energized to finally get our home and office into shape, something that had eluded us for years. Months later we're still using his principles!”
"Andrew changed our lives! Not your typical organizer, Andrew helps his clients get to the heart of their organizational problems through their hearts. I look at 'stuff' in a completely different way now!"
“Andrew changed my life! He combines the directiveness and clarity of those nuns you hid out from in parochial school with the compassion of your therapist and the charm of your best boyfriend. Let him organize and simplify your work and your life!”
“Andrew separated my personal finances from my business finances after several years of not being able to tell the difference. I was frightened of my checkbooks, and now they’re a breeze. It’s amazing!”
"Andrew is so much more than an organizer—he has moved my life forward in ways that no thing or no one has."
"Andrew’s organizational strategies and concepts really work!"
"Thanks a million times over for your help. I went from terrified to looking at all my accumulated junk with some detachment and more importantly, humor. Andrew helped me focus on the what, why, where and how of it all.”
