Meet Julie

The business name JOY Home Organizing came to me before I read the books about ‘spark joy,’ but getting organized really does just that! JOY stands for Julie Organizes You and the fact that my services bring my clients – and myself – JOY.

I love my role of  being able to help people find happiness and feel better by using my natural talents of organizing and finding creative solutions to their specific storage needs. When we finish reclaiming a space, I find myself smiling and feeling as much joy as they do! 😄

Having partnered with some top realtors in the Twin Cities, I enjoy assisting them with decluttering and staging homes for listing photographs and open houses. My keen eye for detail, organization and styling has increased traffic and expedited numerous home sales – as well as relieving a lot of stress for the homeowners!

I works with folks in all stages of life:

  • home sellers + buyers needing packing/unpacking, home staging and organizing services before + after a move,
  • seniors downsizing for retirement,
  • newlyweds merging households,
  • decluttering/organizing before/after a remodel, or
  • or simply helping people who are looking to optimize their existing space, creating a comfortable environment that promotes their overall well-being and productivity.

As a member of NAPO and NAPO-MN, (the National Association of Productivity and Organizing Professionals), I enjoy inspiring and motivating people to get organized and create a sense of tranquility in their homes, fulfilling both their practical and emotional needs through a lighthearted, empathetic, and non-critical approach. My mission is to help others live a more productive and happy life by helping them Lose clutter. Find JOY. and L💖VE THEIR HOME!

my family

I live in Buffalo, MN, with my husband Dave and my Black Lab, Jazmine. When not organizing for others, I seems to constantly be working on refining and redesigning my own home, but mostly I love to be out riding my new horse Bonzo, playing pickleball, floating on the lake, or enjoying games/drinks/time with neighbors + friends. Life is good.

Keep smiling. Spread JOY.
Stay beautiful.

Love, Julie
