Why OrganizingLA Will Help You
Make Your Home & Office
A Place For You To Relax & Succeed,
Keep It That Way,
And Give You More Time
For The Things
You Really Want To Do

If you are here looking for the ways, methods and means on how to get organized, you've arrived at the right place!

No matter where you are or how you live, getting organized often conjures up the fear of being forced into getting rid of acquired possessions and being stripped of all the treasures that make you unique. This is so very far from the truth!

Perhaps you've decorated your home with refurbished antiques acquired from vacations, or inherited china and crystal, art, sculpture, music and memorabilia from family and friends. Your vision of pampering your paperwork and beloved clothing may have turned into an unmanageable mountain. Maybe technology is now torturing you?

You’ve come here because you may have symptoms of overwhelm or just a feeling that “this is not the way it’s supposed to be.”

You are likely here because your needs have changed and perhaps you don't feel your treasures serve your interests anymore. You don't know what to keep or what to toss. Maybe the thought of being forced to get rid of these things makes you paralyzed? For a long time, you've wanted to get organized on your own terms and in your own way. But now you need help, where do you start?

We Are Your Solution:

My name is John Trosko and I am owner and founder of OrganizingLA, a Los Angeles-based professional organization firm. Since 2004, our business is to take the time to really get to know you and your needs. We learn your personal goals and hobbies, come up with a time-table, and schedule short review sessions to help you assess and identify things you want to keep or not. We arrange for auctions, donations to your chosen charity or disposal. If you prefer to give your items to family or friends we can arrange for delivery.

Our goal is not to be pushy; you are in charge the entire time. But we are light-hearted and work with you to apply subtle pressure that we both agree is just right. However, we will never force you to get rid of anything and you are in-charge the entire time. We will walk you through the process with friendly, gentle support so each and every time we work together, you will find relief and feel like you are moving toward your goal.

Your Organizing Process:

During the clutter review process, we are delighted to help you organize your home, to set up systems to be more efficient, to make your friends and family more welcomed when they visit and to alleviate the burden you may feel with so many "treasures" needing your time and thought. We can shop for beautiful clothes hangers and functional storage boxes to hold your memories or utilize what you currently own (don't underestimate how clever we can be). We will label everything clearly and beautifully so everyone in your home can find what they need, when they need it. We will also provide training and a maintenance plan to keep the new systems up or schedule periodic visits and do it for you. And if relocation is in your future, just imagine how much easier and less stressful your next move will be!

What Others Are Saying About OrganizingLA

"John Trosko is just a master at organizing whether it comes to what baskets you need, what shelves you need or how to deal with that clutter that just seems to be the bane of so many of our existences."

--Thomas Farley, Martha Stewart Living Radio

"The Organizational Guru"

--New York Magazine

"John came to the rescue and in just a few short hours, we were able to clear the clutter into manageable files. He left me with an organized system, clear instructions on how to minimize what was left, and the motivation to finish the job myself."

--Robert I., DVM, Veterinarian, Hollywood Hills

"John Trosko is an extraordinary business consultant. He creates an environment where the process of organizing is simple, straightforward and stimulating. He far exceeded my expectations of an "organizer"!"

--Catherine D., Author, Larchmont/Hancock Park

"John Trosko and his team I sorted through boxes, tossed old files, re-stacked shelves, created offices systems for everything-- paying bills, filing, assembling new client folders, tracking marketing activities, and maintaining a database. The results were amazing. Suddenly I had much more time to actually generate revenues. Being organized made my efforts more efficient. My duties and responsibilities were handled in a timelier manner. I haven't lost track of people or paperwork since. And, I saved myself some money on late fees."

--Denise K., Marketing Executive, Los Angeles

My husband and I just relocated back to California from Texas and had boxes EVERYWHERE!!! John Trosko came in and within 2 days had our entire home organized. He is a miracle worker! What would have taken me 2-3 weeks, took John and his counterpart a fraction of the time. Moving into a smaller home, I was concerned that many of my things would need to go into storage, but because John was able to utilize the space to the best of its ability, every little item was able to find a home. I can’t him enough for taking this stress away!!

---A. Cortese, Business Executive, La Crescenta, CA

"I am seated in my new studio/office you created, surrounded by a well-designed and efficient working space. The rest of my home is in equally superb shape. Each room is complete, beautifully arranged and functional. In addition, you invented clever solutions to a potential space problem, achieving more comfort and luxury than I had in my previous much-larger home. You accomplished one amazing feat after another in a fast, efficient and professional manner while continually ensuring my personal comfort. Thank you!"

--Melva U., Retired Journalist and Artist, Century City
