Here’s what our client’s are saying about our services:
“After 46 years under the same ‘roof’ it is easy to accumulate a lot of clutter -especially when that ‘roof’ is on your cottage…..Linda Vanderkolk of ClutterBGone accomplished our cottage transformation…… under time estimated and under budget. With professional, if not military-like, precision she assessed, scheduled, managed and co-ordinated everything and everyone – including me. She also kept me fully informed. With just the right timing she scheduled a shredding company to eliminate, in our driveway, over 60 bankers boxes of files, plus 7 humungous bags of paper, a junk company to take away two truck loads…. She scheduled a young robust assistant, only at strategic times, to do all the heavy lifting to the front lawn collection area..…Linda got me so motivated…… Linda turned highly subjective decisions into easy objective ones. She worked side by side with me sorting, never losing her patience – and seemed to know when I was about to lose mine, distracting me to some other chore to reduce my stress or re-energize me. And, when Linda was finished de-cluttering,…… she ‘staged’ the cottage interior down to the smallest detail in just seven hours using our remaining furnishings and accessories plus a few other accessories she recommended and sourced to surprise us as “finishing touches”.…… I cannot believe the weight off my shoulders. As I emotionally shared with Linda when the de-cluttering was completed, in many respects ClutterBGone saved my life. I revel in the transformation.” Bill
“Thank you Linda for giving me back my work shop. I have a new room in our house. I cannot believe the difference between “before” and “after”. I keep wandering down there, just sitting and looking. I keep telling myself, “It’s all my mine and I can play with it any time I want!”. Moving in is still an option. My teenage son came in the room the other day. He was shocked that there wasa sink in there- for 17 years he never made it past the door! So in a nutshell, you are fantastic. Your vision on how the room would look and work is dead on. Thank you, thank you and thank you! From your pinball repairman.” Steve, Thornhill.
“I don’t normally post commentary regarding positive or negative comments for services purchased, but in this case I felt compelled to do so. I am a father of 2 teenage boys heavily involved in athletics with both my boys as well as myself. We have had to downsize to a condo unit and needless to say. with trying to accommodate all of our various equipment for multiple sports, let’s just says it’s a massive challenge. Linda, came in assessed, organized and virtually transformed what was a dumping area for sporting equipment into a fantastic use of space that will allow us to not only get organized but STAY organized. I am delighted with the way the area was transformed from a sometimes dangerous area into a fully usable space, effectively set up for transitioning for seasonal sporting activities. Here is a list of the sporting activities that needed to be incorporated into this very small space: All three of us play winter hockey (I play summer as well). We camp, fish, play lacrosse, tennis, play golf, baseball, football, roller blade, and have 2 mountain bikes as well in the area. Let me tell you, this is a lot of gear to have readily accessible and to be able to actually walk into the area and transition between sporting activities was my goal. This definitely was a challenging job, one requiring patience, creativity and a military approach to execution. Thank you so much Linda and ClutterBGone !!!!!” Downsized Father

And there is no paper in the kitchen You can paste that on the website!!” Janice, Stouffville
“I am thrilled with the results of “phase one” of our organization project and cannot stop raving about Linda Vanderkolk and ClutterBGone!! During our consultation, Linda was professional and thorough, asking informed questions about the use of each space/room. During our work together, Linda showed herself to be helpful, patient, understanding, and above all, constantly checking in with me to make sure that I was “OK” during every step of the process. I did not feel any pressure during our work together, but rather, felt that I had a supportive partner with whom I had a shared vision of what the space could be. She kept me focused on the task in each area of the room, so that our time together was utilized to its fullest potential. I am finally able to breathe again, and enjoy the rooms that have “emerged” during our work together. THANK YOU!” Lydia
“Thanks Linda, the office looks great. What a difference your little added touches here and there make. I’m definitely experiencing a calmness at work that was not present beforehand.” G. De Angelis
“Linda helped me organize my front closet that has been an embarrassment for years. Her expertise and ability to understand the needs of how my family functions on a day to day basis, has made the greatest difference in how we all manage our things. I am so happy with the closet, I can’t begin to tell you how good it feels to walk into the house and know it’s organized. I have kept it up with the kids and Hubby as Linda set up a routine for us. She helped me understand why I keep the things I don’t need and to start letting go of clutter. I am just in LOVE with my closet! I recommend everyone use ClutterBGone’s services. I have kept it up with the kids and hubby and I’m just in LOVE with my closet.” Elaine
“Thanks Linda for organizing my office and garage, everything looks so neat and beautiful. I can finally find what I’m looking for without spending hours and stressing. I couldn’t have done it without you and I can’t wait to have you over again to help me with my basement. You have lifted weight from my shoulders. I really appreciate all your hard work! Carla G.
