Hi and welcome! I’m Karen Furman, Bet Shemesh’s professional home organizer and de-cluttering expert.
I’m originally from Chicago and made aliyah to Israel in 2010. I have a degree in language education to teach grades K-12 for Spanish and ESL. Additionally I’ve trained as a massage therapist. My unique background has taught me to “hear” what people say whether they express themselves in words or body language. I have an awareness how organized spaces positively affect how we function, feel and think.
Uncluttered spaces make us feel relaxed, lighter, and freer. Cluttered spaces cause stress, feeling of being overwhelmed, and tension. Who wants those symptoms? After a session a client said “It took Karen 4 hours to do what would have taken me three months! I love my space now!”
Do I in a large house? No-I live in a three-bedroom one-floor apartment with my family of 8. As you can imagine, space is tight. I am always seeking solutions to organizational challenges because our space must evolve to accommodate our changing needs. I like to share my expertise and help others achieve similar results in their own homes.
Perhaps you watched the Netflix show or read the book Tidying Up with Marie Kondo, been acquainted with FlyLady, or are ready to make positive changes to your home. I work alongside you and teach the skills to empower you take control of your space and downsize excess. As part of my service, your unwanted items will be removed and re-homed to individuals or organizations who can use them.
What Services Do I Offer?
I can help you with projects such as:
- A guest room that has become the dumping ground for everything
- A bedroom that needs tweaking to accommodate a new baby or give siblings more personal space
- A kitchen needs rearranging to make it more functional
- A a closet full of clothes with nothing to wear
Re-homing Unwanted Items
All the items you have no use for or no longer want will be re-homed to individuals that can use them. I’ll remove the items and re-home them for you. Possible recipients are families in need, a gemach, a women’s shelter or a girls’ home.
Save time and money by packing methodically and de-cluttering / downsizing before you the move. Less stuff to move = reduced moving costs.
Moving is stressful and emotional. Let me help you unpack and go from moving boxes to an organized new home. You’ll avoid the pitfall of stashing items anywhere just to get them out of boxes. We’ll not only get the job done, but get it done right from the start.
Ready to Get Started?
Don’t be shy about scheduling a session. Clients appreciate my easy-going and non-judgmental attitude. I’ve seen all kinds of situations that just need a little (or a lot) of work. Whether you need a small area makeover like a closet or drawer or a room overhaul, we work together get your de-cluttered and organized. I will teach you the method so you have the tools to maintain the work we did. Questions about what happens during a session? See my FAQ page.
