Happy people are what we strive for!
Read some comments from our satisfied clients here or at Angie’s List.
For the first time in about 15 years I can look forward to holiday decorating without a sense of dread because Affordable Organization helped me to wonderfully organize my seasonal decorations and make my basement into a much better place. Our house was built in 1940, and as a result I do not have a lot of storage space. Affordable Organization is fantastic at facilitating and tackling a daunting challenge such as this!
My sessions with Julia were so productive and inspired me to complete this task as she provided such astute vision and methods for turning a giant mess into something that is now so much easier to maintain! Her ability to use what I had and make excellent suggestions enabled us to accomplish this task, and I am so grateful. It was the best money that I’ve spent in some time, and I cannot recommend enough just how awesome the service they provide is!
Furthermore, Hope and Julia are excellent coaches for teaching the best ways to organize things in your daily life. I’m excited that I have things in clear bins with labels that will make my life easier!
Thank you so much!!
– S.Noel, Dighton, MA
I’m stunned at what we did on Saturday. You were amazing! Thank you so much. I could not have sold this house without you. You’re the best!
– Jane M., Barrington, RI
Hope, I’m so glad to have met you! I never thought a purge of this size, which was the biggest I’ve done of my own stuff, could not only be painless, but be enjoyable. I loved working with you and totally enjoyed your company as well as your professionalism and expertise.
– Beth Z., Milford, MA
I will start by saying, if you are considering hiring Affordable Organization, don’t hesitate! They are professional, affordable, and impressive.
– Kathie S., Providence, RI
Affordable Organizing was one of the best gifts I gave myself this year!
– Sheila B., North Kingstown, RI
Hope and her husband are wonderful! They helped me last year with a couple projects – installation of drawers and custom shelving in awkward closet upstairs, as well as organization of our garage. Hope had some great ideas and we really only had to purchase a couple of hooks/hangers – we were able to more efficiently utilize other hooks we already had – and the difference it made is huge! I highly recommend them. The products that they use are quality and very reasonability priced, and Hope’s ability to visualize and plan is exceptional.
– Anna B., Rehoboth, MA
This lady is my fantastic neighbor and friend (of 14 years)!! She literally came to my rescue just before all “Hell broke loose” in February and early March. She helped me organize my kitchen, dining area and entryway. Little did she or I realize at that time my family and I (like the rest of you) would begin “The Great Time of Isolation”. If it hadn’t been for her “magic” I don’t know what the last 43 days and counting…..would have been like!! She has helped my family and myself find a place that we can comfortably coexist. We can’t wait for her future return to help my teenage daughter figure out her own space. Let her help you regain control. Stay sane and stay well.😍💙💜
– “The Other Hope”, Seekonk, MA
Hope, who would have imagined my work with you this winter would help me with my life quarantined! My husband and I are essential workers and over this past week I just got my brain back. I’m great now and have energy to do extra projects to help where I can. Because of the time we spent together, I know were everything is. Once I start multiple projects, I know how to keep everything together. (Masks cutting and sewing stations, ear saver crochet station, painting station and cricket station). Thank you Hope for helping with this gift that’s still giving. Wishing you and your family well.
– Michelle B., Rehoboth, MA
I worked with AO and Hope when we were down-sizing my home after 20 years. She was a great investment. Hope helped me to determine which items to keep, what to throw away, how to organize my new space, and even shared creative decorating tips. Her rates are very reasonable and she works around your schedule. Now I just can’t wait to bring her into my classroom!
– Ann W., Seekonk, MA
Hope is an amazing person. She took a lot of stress off me. This was a big move for me and probably my last. I couldn’t have done it without her. I would not hesitate to recommend Affordable Organization to anyone! You will be glad you did. Hope has a calmness about her and she makes you feel like everything will be ok.
– Melissa V., Warwick, RI
If I could give more than 5 stars, I would. Hope and her team are amazing!! I had a daunting task of cleaning out and organizing my house after living with a semi-hoarder for 20 years. I am a neat nick, but couldn’t keep up with the mess. She helped me figure it all out, sort through things, make good choices about what I wanted to keep, and get rid of what I didn’t (with the help of her “junk guy,” who was also awesome). Her husband redesigned and rebuilt several of my closets and now everything has a place… and it has stayed that way for months!!! I cannot recommend Affordable Organization enough. Make the leap… it’ll be well worth it!
– Carolyn R., Easton, MA
Hope has been a godsend to me and my family. she entered our lives and helped us to be more organized in my business, and my home..she even got my children to be more organized with their rooms.
My three children will jump to participate into organizing with her…I cannot say enough about Hope. Thank you so much for all you do and always being there for maintenance when I get caught up again, she is there to get us back on track. She has never failed us We love you Hope.
– The McDonald family, Coventry, RI
I want to give a HUGE shout out to my friend, former colleague, and organizer extraordinaire Hope Turenne of Affordable Organization! If you need help purging, organizing, packing or unpacking for a move, prepping a home for sale, etc, Hope is without a doubt your dream organizer and more. I can’t say enough about how much she has gently, compassionately, and expertly steered my mother and our family through this challenging and at times emotional transitional period. Sorting through the accumulation of multiple generations, households, and several families all under one roof, is hardly an easy task, yet somehow Hope makes it simpler and dare I say even fun at times.
– Erika M., Riverside, RI
Hope at Affordable Organization is spectacular! Thanks to her expertise and abilities, my garage is still organized after 5+ years and now enjoyed as a work-out area for my family! She helped us claim more space in our own home and she can help you, too!!!! Call her today and get organized! You’ll feel great once it’s done
– Michelle M., Seekonk, MA
I previously used Affordable Organization to add shelving in three closets in our newly finished basement. They worked with me to design the layout needed for each closet and talked me through everything I should consider. I loved the finished results so I just had Hope and her “handyman” organize our two car garage. Hope came into the garage and first sorted everything that we had shoved onto a Rubbermaid shelf and sorted neatly the items into separate bins. Then, taking what we had, she created a shelving design to get everything off the floor. We had an existing wall that had peg board and they simply installed some sturdy hooks and reorganized the wall to make it work. Once the new shelving was installed and we had everything off the floor, I couldn’t believe how much space we really had!!! I love the system they installed and everyone in the house (including the kids) have been keeping everything in place. I am getting so many compliments from friends and neighbors… They are so easy to work with and I am using them again soon for my pantry!
– Jen A., Seekonk, MA
Thank you, Hope. I look forward to working with you again. You have made these times of home transition over the last few years much more manageable and I am appreciative.
– Justin S., Providence, RI
We have been so blessed to have such amazing people donate their time and energy to aid the Savvy Giving by Design – Rhode Island recipients. Today, we would like to give a special shout out to Hope Turenne of Affordable Organization. Her incredible hard work paved the way for us to start our redesign process in two children’s bedrooms. Her organization skills are unparalleled. If anyone is looking to organize their home, office or storage spaces, Hope is your girl! Thank you again, Affordable Organization!
– Bernadette H., Savvy Giving by Design
It was my first time using an organizer and I was new back in town. I was skeptical of the service in the beginning, but the roomful of stuff was just too much for me to handle. Hope is extremely professional and gives good estimates and advice. She doesn’t hesitate to roll up her sleeves and tackle the issues head on. Not only that, she is also a great connector to the community and quality service providers. In the end, we finished the project much earlier than we thought and we were able to donate some stuff to a non-profit organization and community. Very happy with the outcome.
– Sheena L., Pawtucket, RI
Hope is amazing. I was pregnant and on bed rest when we moved and she packed, unpacked, and organized everything. We literally could not have done it without her.
– Sarah B., Warwick, RI
Hope is like a personal trainer for organization! She is talented and has a laser focus to see what you need and how to make improvements! Her expertise and results create order from disorder and dissolve stress and increase efficiency! She will enable your daily routines to be simpler and happier! I recommend her services; it is a valuable investment in many ways!
– Sandra N., Dighton, MA
Well, where do I begin? I met Hope and her Affordable Organization just a little over 2 years ago. I am a realtor and also have a student service business in Providence. I am always busy and have many services and need help often. Affordable Organization has come to my rescue time and time again. Hope is a true professional. I also call upon her services for me personally. From inside my home to my garage Hope makes it happen. I must say she is a joy to work with and has certainly put big smiles on many a face. Talented, personable and can whip any space to function like never before. There is hope with Hope. Second to NONE.
– Lana D., Providence, RI
Over the years while raising a family, we had accumulated so much and had done mini purges along the way but it was never enough. I then started opening cupboards, closets, bins and the anxiety kicked in. I wanted to organize but where do I start and how can I ever do this alone? I was completely overwhelmed. In passing, a friend mentioned that she hired Hope to help her with a few home organization projects. The next day I called Hope and we met in person soon after that. What I adore about Hope is that she is not judgmental but she is definitely efficient, full of resources, motivated and fun to work with. We are still working together as I write this and I am so thankful that I found her. I have already recommended her to several friends. She is worth every penny. I feel like a huge weight has already been lifted off me.
– Lisa K., Cranston, RI
I would recommend Affordable Organization to EVERYONE! Hope is amazing and a joy to work with. She doesn’t judge you for having too much STUFF! She helps you shed things you don’t need and organize the things you keep. She will help you find places to donate what you get rid of which is so helpful. Hope’s talent is truly a blessing! Oh…she is a wonderful person which is a Bonus! I was extremely satisfied with her work.
– Michelle S., N. Smithfield, RI
Finding Hope was so refreshing. What a hard worker she is and the ideas that she has are terrific. Until you go through everything you own, you don’t know what you have. Boy does Hope work hard, and her husband is terrific. I can’t help but give her a 5-star, I would recommend her to everyone. I have a very bad back, so she would have me sit down while she did the work. Hope also knows just where to donate different things.
– R. White, Pawtucket, RI
Living organized becomes a lifestyle that eventually organizes your own life, gives you control and peace over the inside of your home! And it starts with a slow helpful approach by Hope!!!
– Ernie E., Cranston, RI
I am so happy with my clean, organized basement! Hope worked non-stop for 5 hours! I was very impressed with her knowledge and efficiency! I would highly recommend Affordable Organization!
– E. Wayland, East Providence, RI
Hope is amazing. Easy going, non judgmental and extremely effective and efficient. She helped organize our home better so we can keep up with it with 2 little ones in tow.
– R. Breitman, Mansfield, MA
Very easy to work with, professional and extremely organized. Very helpful, gives good feelings.
– B. Hoskins, Riverside, RI
Finding Hope was like finding a smiling angel from above. She is kind, quick, thorough, efficient and hard working. I have hired her 3 times so far and will need her again soon. Worth every dollar I spent.
– C. Ward, Middletown, RI
Don’t put it off, Hope will change your life. I called her three years ago; and it wasn’t always easy, but it was always fun. Like going through all your crap with a long lost (but newly found) friend. A friend who didn’t judge you for having a slight obsession with Disney VHS tapes and stationery supplies! And after every session, when Hope packed up our many donations and drove them away, I would breathe a sigh of relief as my home slowly turned from complete chaos to easily manageable systems. The only things you have to gain are your space, your time, and your sanity. And you have nothing to lose except stuff you don’t need!! So make that call already.
– Holly E., Cranston, RI
Hope worked with us on several rooms to help us get organized and de-clutter. There is nothing magical about the work she does, but the result is amazing. She only asks you to think about if you “really need it” The answer is up to you.
If you realize you don’t need it, she’ll find a home for it.
Working on this with Hope was the start of creating a new habit, which is a habit we all threaten to do…whether it is de-cluttering, saving money, going to the gym…all those things we always threaten to do, having Hope come to your house means commitment to the change, and the chance is sustainable because she organizes WITH you, not FOR YOU.
– Bryan R., Attleboro, MA
There are not enough stars to properly communicate how pleased we were with Hope and Affordable Organization! We did my entire kitchen without ever ONCE meeting in person after the initial consultation. We communicated through email and phone calls throughout the process. I was left with not only a CLEAN and ORGANIZED kitchen – but more importantly a PLAN to keep it that way. She brings so much more to the table so to speak than you would ever expect. I cant recommend her highly enough!
– Nicole C., Rumford, RI
Hope was amazing!! She was everything I wanted and more. I highly recommend hiring Hope! She transformed my whole house.
– Gina C., Brockton, MA
Hope and her associate are consummate professionals at what the company does. Not only do they know what they are doing, they do it with enthusiasm, and with alacrity. Oh, this last word — speedy, and never reckless! They leave all the decision to the one who hired them, and do not subvert that basic idea — this is your stuff, and although I am here to help you, it’s your decision as to what to do with it every item to be moved — keep, recycle, donate, sell or as I have said many times — “get rid of it”! I have learned to decide as to what I need and what I want…at Hope’s consultation. If ever I had to de-clutter ever again, I would employ here services in a minute. Hope — Avanti e sopra — Up and and at ’em!
– Tony A., Portsmouth, RI
I’ve worked with Affordable Organization for about 10, 3-hour sessions over the last year. We’ve gone through my clothes, uncluttered a LOT of paper from my home office, organized my kitchen, and uncluttered both attic and basement. Affordable Organization goes above and beyond by bringing items to be donated to Savers after each session and also by making recommendations for containers and other items to help keep things orderly (sometimes even doing the shopping!). They are upbeat and positive, keeping you focused on the task at hand yet very personable. Texts and emails between sessions are answered promptly.
– Daniel K., Providence, RI
Hope is a GODSEND! I cannot believe how she is organizing my home! She is worth her weight in gold!
– R. Stanley, Cranston, RI
The organizing went very well! Hope was friendly and professional. We achieved my goal of organizing the bedroom in less time than I had anticipated, so we went on to organizing my pantry and clothes cupboards. The three spaces we organized were originally quite unorganized. Now they are arranged to make the best use of space. It feels wonderful to have these areas be so neat, orderly used, and functional. Well done. Hope!
– Anonymous, MA
Hope came into my house and she was AMAZING, quick, efficient, EFFECTIVE. She knows her stuff and works fast. She came ridiculously prepared, I had a lot of work to do so she was able to take care of my entire basement, organize it without any guidance from me until the end for personal items. She checked in when she needed to, but was very respectful of my schedule. She did for me in a couple of days what would have taken me FOREVER to do on my own. For the basement it was $300, and then the rest of the house was $300, kitchen was $300 as well. Honestly I am going to have her pack up my house when I move. She is A-MAZING!
– Minessa K., Franklin, MA
I loved working with Hope! All of her ideas were incredibly helpful. As someone who has absolutely no time, I was grateful to have such a tremendous professional taking charge of organizing my house and serving as such a helpful thought partner. I trusted Hope every step of the way and she delivered above and beyond my expectations. I would recommend Hope without any reservation and absolutely plan to work with her further in the future.
– Julia RB., RI
Is this something I could have done on my own? Probably. But the time and money I spent to have Hope step in and take over was so well invested. It wasn’t that I couldn’t make the time, it was that I couldn’t even make the mindset necessary to get the job done.
– Amy B., MA
Hope has worked with me several times to declutter and organize most of my bedrooms & closets, mudroom, garage, and basement. She worked side by side with me to get so much done each session! She also brought bags and bags of donation material to Goodwill/Savers.
Hope was an amazing help to keep me motivated, inspired and able to see the finish line. She helped me see the benefits of purging before organizing…this has been so liberating and has helped clear my brain for more important things! I have 3 kids and Hope worked with each of them so they had ownership of their space and things. I have recommended Hope and Affordable Organization to all of my friends!
– Lori D., Attleboro, MA
Just had my first session with Hope today. I was amazed by how much we got accomplished in 4 hours!! Hope is very professional and provides outstanding support and guidance to make your home clutter free!
– Angela M., East Freetown, MA
Hope organized 8 years worth of toys and books and mess for our playroom and overgarage loft. It was a task I always felt too overwhlemed to tackle. She did an amazing job, was super professional and it was nothing short of a miracle!! It took about 10 hours to get all the work done and Hope was totally accurate about how long she thought it would take. I can’t tell you how great it feels to not have to look at that mess!
– Cristy K., Seekonk, MA
The best decision I ever made was hiring Hope to come in and organize our household! Before doing that, I had spent many weeks with much anxiety on how I could get everything done. Once the decision was made to hire Affordable Organization to do the job, my anxiety was a thing of the past! I’d like Hope to come live with us, but unfortunately that won’t happen 🙁 She really goes above and beyond what is expected of her, and with my limited mobility this was so greatly appreciated. Plus she was excellent company! If you are thinking about hiring a professional organizer, stop thinking and just do it! Seriously…she’s awesome!
– R. Chee, North Attleboro, MA
This company is AMAZING and local to RI and MA! Hope did an amazing job helping my 14 year old get organized and is now helping me plan my mudroom and pantry closet in my new home! She thinks of EVERYTHING and is fun and easy to work with. If you or a loved one needs help getting organized this Spring, I highly recommend Affordable Organization. It’s one of those moments in your life when you think…why didn’t I do this a LONG time ago!
– A. Roslonek, Seekonk, MA
Because I live in Virginia and my daughter lives in Massachusetts, I was unable to help her unpack and organize her recently purchased home. Since I wanted to enjoy my vacation in New England, I hired Affordable Organization to do “the Mom thing,” as a housewarming (save our relationship) gift. What a pleasure it was to visit a truly organized home!
Hope worked well with my daughter and was able to accommodate my daughter’s busy work schedule. All of the closets were organized as were the cabinets in the kitchen; labels were affixed to the contents of shelves and containers. Hope even shopped for appropriate organizers that best suited each room, and returned those which didn’t fit.
My four year old granddaughter’s bedroom, including her closet and dresser, and her separate playroom are so well-organized that it’s a snap for her to not only find things, but most importantly to put them away. This makes it easy for my granddaughter to fill out her responsibility chart, another wonderful suggestion from Hope!
So, thank you for sharing your organizational expertise in a non-judgmental manner with my daughter. Your skills have truly created a more peaceful and less hectic home environment.
And for all of you who think you may need help in creating calm from chaos, there’s always Hope (Turenne) – sorry, could not resist the pun!
– J. Ryan, Virginia
Organization is not my strength, and as a single mom running a start-up business it is a key component of running my family and my business. I bought a house, packed and moved all within three weeks! Hope is my secret super power. She was ready to work, helped me pack and purge my old house. She is also helping me unpack and set up organizational systems that will work for me, my children and my business. In less than two weeks, my house will be a functional refuge. I know that I’ll never lose another piece of paper again. Hope totally rocks!.
– Lisa D., East Greenwich, RI
“Exactly what I wanted/needed. Hope was AWESOME to work with, I’m not always easy… to work with! The work we did & systems she set up for me are still working 2 months later. Couldn’t be happier. Thanks Hope!.
– Louann D., Barrington, RI
Affordable Organization helped to organize a basement for my young family of four. My space had gotten out of control due to illness and my resulting inability to put items away appropriately after use.
Hope came to the rescue and restored order and function.
– Amy D., Seekonk, MA
I am an avid cook and Affordable Organization transformed my kitchen – now everything is at my fingertips and completely functional.
Everyone needs a little organization and Affordable Organization is just what you need.
– Paula C., Coventry, RI
An organized home leads to a more organized life, I am truly grateful for Affordable Organization! Hope and I worked together to transform several of my over stuffed closets, into closets that I’m now proud for others to see. The process was stress-free because she provided simple solutions that were affordable and quick. My closets were full of items that needed a better place or hadn’t been used in years, we purged and reorganized, and now I can find what I need quickly without getting frustrated.
– Carrie L., Seekonk, MA
Teens are not known to be the most orderly people and my daughter is no exception. Luckily, Hope was up for the challenge! Clothes, blankets, books, and collectibles are now all neat and orderly. The cost was minimal and I love that Hope let my daughter have a voice during the organization process.
– Cindy D., Cumberland, RI
Hope helped my family do the impossible…clean out our 84 year old Aunt’s home of the past 20 years because she was going to reside in a nursing home. Hope carefully sifted through the kitchen, numerous closets, countless boxes, and in the end just ten organized bins of clothing, photos and memorabilia were moved into the nursing home. She helped us dispose of medicines, couches, TVs, and furniture galore all within a matter of days. We could not have completed this project so quickly and painlessly without Affordable Organization. Thank you!
– Michelle G., Milford, MA
My family and I had the pleasure of working with Hope Turenne of Affordable Organization on a month long project to clean out and organize our small home. Hope was very patient, well organized and hard working for the duration of the project. She had a plan for each day we worked together and kept me updated throughout the month. Hope has given my family our home back. We can meet our daily needs more easily because all of our belongings have a place and are efficiently organized. My children have less anxiety because they know where everything belongs and they are working on keeping it that way. Thank you very much Affordable Organization for putting the heart of my home back together so my family can be happy, healthy and stress free.
– Tami K., Seekonk, MA
Amazing – Hope is very easy to work with and patient! She has great ideas and is very professional!
– S. Hastings, Rehoboth, MA
My fiancé and I are active, outdoorsy, and always on the go. This lifestyle means we have tons of clothing and recreational gear, and little time to keep all our clothing organized! Hope helped us organize our bedroom and turned a “seemingly” huge and overwhelming task into a manageable and fun process. In addition to helping us reclaim our bedroom, Hope gave us several easy tips to keep us on track long-term. Hope is efficient and a joy to work with and her process is completely stress-free. Her practical approach is inspiring – I’m already thinking about which room to hire her to help with next!
