organize to make room for the important things
Your home should not make you feel overwhelmed or make you anxious. Your home should be your refuge -- a place away from the chaos of the increasingly busy world. My goal is to help you make your spaces more organized so you can free up your mind to focus on more important things. I believe an organized space can contribute to creativity and allow you freedom to pursue that which brings you joy, be it artistic endeavors, time with family, or perhaps even your career.
Want to be organized but feel like you just can't quite get there on your own? I would love to help you. This is what I love to do.
You are placing a sincere trust in me when you allow me in your home -- I maintain the highest level of confidentiality and am 100% non-judgmental.
I'm all about making your life simpler and your space more organized so you have time to focus on the more important things. So let's make this organizing plan simple.
I offer a complimentary in-home consultation. Here we'll assess your needs and priorities. We'll discuss how we can make you feel less overwhelmed by making your space more livable. We'll discuss project details and schedules.
SORT & edit
This is an important part of the process, but one that tends to make people anxious. Don't let it make you so. We'll work on this together and figure out what belongs in your home and what doesn't have value to you. You have the final say; I'll just help you make some decisions along the way.
Here comes the fun part. We'll find suitable homes for each of your belongings and offer attractive and functional containers. We'll aim to inject your style into the organization solutions and add to the beauty of your space.
Owner & Organizer
I was born and raised right here in Houston, Texas. I went to Episcopal High School and graduated from University of Houston with a degree in Communications. I'm proud to be a Houstonian and barring something totally unexpected, this is where I will always call home.
I am employed full-time in the Texas Medical Center and thoroughly enjoy that position. But I also have a passion for organization that I can't deny - I've been into containers since I was little! Organizing my own home allows me to free up my mind to pursue creative hobbies and I am constantly working on project after project.
My goal is to bring order and comfort to other people's lives through professional organization. I'm looking forward to the opportunity to do that for you.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING...
"I felt so overwhelmed by all my boys' stuff...The amount of stuff paralyzed me, and if I'm honest, it made me a bit anxious (I kept getting that tight feeling in the chest). I would walk in their rooms at night and turn a blind eye to all the stuff everywhere...That's when Cathryn Linn of The Organizing Organization came to my rescue...I keep thinking 'how did she make so much stuff/junk look so pretty?'"

Before Cathryn and Irene came to our house, toys had overtaken our upstairs. They saved us! The boys actually play in the playroom now, and even better, they put things up! Everything has a place, which means things can be found and put away. We all love the organized space. I think I love it just as much as the kids. Their rooms look better than mine!
If you have organizing projects that you’ve been putting off—pantry, office, playroom, etc.—Cathryn Linn with The Organizing Organization is an absolute godsend. She takes the time to listen and understand your organizational challenges, and customizes long lasting solutions that not only address the problem areas, but also look great! She has a great aesthetic and eye for how spaces should look, and you’ll not only want to keep it that way once she’s done, but doing so will be easy. My pantry used to be an eyesore, and now, it is one of the zen areas in my house. So wonderful to have a resource like The Organizing Organization in our area!
"I think my favorite part was realizing how much space we actually had, once we considered how to accommodate all of our necessities differently. Being in an organized space makes me feel so much more comfortable and happy/relaxed in my own home!...you will love the personalized approach to organizing your space!!!"
"Cathryn did an amazing job helping me figure out what I needed to keep, purge, sort, and organize. She purchased supplies specific for my stuff and space and labeled everything! I love being in my organized space. It's made me happier and more productive. Thank you!!!"
"I would say this changed my life, dramatic yes, but also true."
