Quote to live by: “If one’s life is simple, contentment has to come. Simplicity is extremely important for happiness. Having few desires, feeling satisfied with what you have, is very vital: satisfaction with just enough food, clothing, and shelter to protect yourself from the elements.” - The Dalai Lama

My name is Mercedes Shackleford, and I am a Professional Organizer serving the Northwest Illinois and Southern Wisconsin region.

What is it that I do, and how can I help you?

I was born with a passion for organizing, and it has been a blessing to make it my profession. I am a busy mother of 3, and being organized has helped me “rein in” the chaos that comes from a busy household. Being organized is more than just a pretty space; it is being able to find things when you need to and thereby making your life easier. I truly believe that the results of minimizing - - getting the excess down to essentials, will have a long-lasting positive impact on your life. I’m a residential organizer, but I have also helped businesses streamline their workflow. I am fully committed to my clients and their spaces; it’s all about the details.

Please contact me to show you how I can improve your spaces!
