Welcome

Hi and welcome! I’m Karen Furman. After 24 years of teaching school and experiencing teacher burn-out,  I decided to do something different and “de-cluttered” the stress of teaching from my life.  Though the stress was gone, I missed sharing information and working with others.

I did some soul-searching and The Klutter Koach came about after realizing I could use my knack for organizing and combine it with my desire to empower others with new skills and knowledge.

I have many opportunities to practice what I preach.  There are 8 people in my family (6 children ages tot through teen) living in a one-floor three-bedroom small Israeli apartment.  I am always seeking solutions to organizational challenges because our needs are always changing and our space must evolve to accommodate those needs.

I assist my clients by listening to their home organizational concerns and creating solutions. I have a can-do, non-judgemental, and easy going manner.

No need to be shy about scheduling a session.  I’ll suggest solutions to your biggest home organizing challenges and then we’ll execute the plan into action. I tell my clients  “I don’t judge and I’ve seen it all.” Many people are drained emotionally or physically regarding certain aspects of their home and the “koach” (Coach spelled with a “K” for Karen and also Hebrew word Ko-ach meaning “strength”)  will arrive with energy and enthusiasm to get things moving in a positive direction so you can enjoy your space after we’ve finished our session.

The Klutter Koach offers HOME ORGANIZING SOLUTIONS to residents of Bet Shemesh and Ramat Bet Shemesh


Blog

My Blog is where you can read The Olim Files: a series for Anglo in Israel on the topic of organizing and visual guides to Israeli living such as cleaning supplies or school supplies. Additionally, I share recipes and food-related posts because I’m a wannabe food blogger and mainly cook from stratch.

Testimonials

Organizing and Decluttering Session  

I used to feel stress walking into our cluttered home. It’s been 3 weeks since Karen organized our play room (for 5 kids) and hall area. Both are still holding up neatly! Methodically, Karen classified items and found homes for each toy, book, game, and whatever. She dramatically decreased the clutter and overwhelming mess of kids’ and parents’ items.  Ira S, Bet Shemesh

Organizing Session 

Karen is pleasant, nonjudgmental and efficient. Totally worth the money. My entrance way is now a functional mudroom, my kitchen is suddenly more roomy and my laundry room is a nice place to hang out. Also she takes away the clutter when she leaves so you don’t have to deal with it. Devora T, Bet Shemesh

Organizing Session

I want to thank “Karen the Klutter Koach” so much for her help.
I had gotten to the point where my clutter started to overwhelm me to the point where I didn’t know where to begin. Karen walked in and got right to work. Within 2 hours a room that was unusable became usable again! Together we set up systems in place that I’m confident I can maintain. Most importantly, she broke me out of my rut and gave me the confidence I needed! She’s very sweet, non-judgmental, and she sent me a wonderful detailed follow up email detailing what we did and giving me tips for the future. I highly recommend to her to anyone needing help to overcome their “klutter”.
