Recently featured on HGTV's Mission Organization and WSVN-7 News, professional organizer Beth Levin of Closet Queen helps restructure spaces and de-stress her clutter-clogged clients' lives. Closets are purged or rooms redesigned with Closet Queen's proven stuff-scrubbing system, which begins upon Beth's arrival with a ritual junk cleansing and routine exorcism. After dated clothing, unwanted accessories, stuffed bison teeth, excess boxes, and more are removed, Beth will consult with the customer about storing, selling, or donating the overflow and will help homeowners implement solutions to better utilize the newly minted space. Carve out a closet niche for frequently misplaced purses, or find a more convenient spot for space-sucking moist-towelette collections. Throughout the painless process, Beth will provide patrons with tips on how to continue the rubbish removal and maintain their freshly tidied turfs.
