John is featured in today's (Thursday, December 23rd) Wall Street Journal in a Life & Culture piece on gift wrapping rooms.
We are deeply honored and excited! The article has made the WSJ home page as an "Editor's Pick" AND we're quoted twice in the photo slideshow. The article begins:
"Anyone wanting to buy all the gifts in "The Twelve Days of Christmas" should prepare to do a lot of wrapping—364 presents if all items mentioned in the entire song are wrapped."

Two of our Los Angeles professional organizing clients are featured in the WSJ piece: Linda Howard and Sally Horchow. Each have extraordinary skills at entertaining, performing charity work, planning parties with a purpose and a dedication to the well-being of their friends and families. Much of their passion for life is portrayed through gift-giving.
"Through his business, OrganizingLA, John Trosko has helped more than 100 clients set up, remodel or better organize wrapping rooms or wrapping closets. "It's kind of like a man cave" for women, he says."
"Mr. Trosko says a well-organized wrapping room needs either a basket or rollers for dispensing paper, a drawer where tissue can lay flat, a drawer for tools like scissors, glue and tape and space to organize spools of ribbon and other decorative items. Shelves for gifts awaiting wrapping are also helpful, as is a calendar listing upcoming birthdays and social engagements."
The article also features Candy Spelling, Kate's Paperie in New York, California Closets, consumer Agatha Wallen of Redlands, California, Homebuilder KB Home, Martha Stewart and Dean Jones, owner of Realogics Sotheby's International Realty in Seattle.
