As more individuals find themselves working from home, they are turning to professional organizers to declutter their space and make their work-from-home dreams come true.

Beth Spiroff, owner of Beth Spiroff Professional Organizing, knows first-hand about change. With the surge in the number of people trying to bring normalcy to their lives during the COVID-19 pandemic, she is busy helping others achieve bliss in their homes.
The Northville resident points to the popularity of the Netflix show, Get Organized with The Home Edit. It was such a big hit, the series was slated to return for a second season, dropping on Sept. 9.
“They enjoy the show and want to get their homes organized, too,” Spiroff said. “Then they call me.”
A combination of the Netflix show and COVID, were responsible for a big spike in her business. In June 2021, she had her busiest month ever.
“The Home Edit is a phenomenon and it’s bringing home organization to the forefront,” Spiroff said. “People are thinking more about their spaces. Organizing just blew-up on social media in 2020.”
Spiroff’s clients want to declutter their closets, basements, kitchens and workspaces.
Jennifer Munro called Spiroff in January when she needed help in her Farmington Hills home. “During COVID my disorganization got worse and with being at home. I needed my living space to be more livable,” Munro said. “I had problems with my closet, trying to organize it.” Munro said. “It was knee-high.”
As Spiroff made progress, Munro kept adding rooms – office, dining room, kitchen, and a full garage.
“It was the best money I’ve spent in a long time,” Munro said. “It did wonders for my mental health. I’m working from home now, so this is my space.”
Spiroff, and her team of five, often work with people who are moving into new homes and they want to start off organized. She recently completed a 7,000 square foot home in Bloomfield Hills for a young family, with two small children.
“The mom was pretty overwhelmed with what needed to be done and she was happy to hire me to take it off of her plate,” Spiroff said. “Everything was a blank slate, including a huge master closet.”
They also tackled a toy room and other major areas of the house. “I really enjoy those projects where my creativity comes into play, and we can delight the client with the end result.”
The client, who wished to remain anonymous, said: “Beth and her team transformed my closet. Everything is in the perfect place and looks beautiful. I would recommend her to anyone.”
Spiroff said there is no demographic for her services, and that everyone at some point has issues with clutter. It could be moving, emptying out that stuffed basement, or a family with too many things taking over. She works with everyone, from young moms, to busy executives, to seniors.
“Sometimes they don’t know where to start,” she said. “I can take out the guesswork and start quickly. We’re putting systems in place, we’re turning their homes into something that is more functional and beautiful.” Many of her jobs involved discarding many old belongings and donating the rest.
“We have a non-judgmental approach,” she said. “We just want to help them.”
