Jan Hausrath-Selling Prep & Unpack
When faced with my first home sale and purchase in more than 10 years, I panicked. My agent had set a goal of getting our existing home on the market in 3 weeks and when I started to meltdown, my agent recommended Maria White and her company, Enuff with the Stuff. In 3 days of 4-5 hour packing sessions, we packed more than 70 boxes and purged our house of unwanted items that could be of use to charities -- which Maria hauled away in her trusty van. Once I moved into my new home, Maria deployed her genius organizational skills, installing pull-out drawers in kitchen cabinets, reorganizing pot and dish drawers, unpacking and then organizing clothes closets and drawers for ease of use. I couldn't have lasted through this move without Maria, simply put!! If you want to get the move done right and fast, then you'll want Maria at your side too. Jan Hausrath Reston, VA P.S. House sold in 1 day!

Our storage room had become the dumping ground for everything from old pots and pans to dated Christmas decorations, lamps, dishes, golf clubs and the list went on and on. We had talked many times of taking a weekend to "attack" the room...but the minute we opened the door we would become overwhelmed as to where to start. Enter Maria White! She was prompt, professional, hard working, non-judgmental, a real dream come true. We could not be happier with how everything looks and would recommend Enuff With The Suff to anyone. P.S. My husband was ThRiLLed and is totally amazed at what you have done. Marcia Behr

I had had my house on the market for several months and was entertaining an offer when I enlisted Maria's help. She came by and gave me insights for the next steps. Personally, I was out-of-steam and needed someone to provide a comprehensive plan. Maria set priorities, gave me a written plan, suggested tools, and gave me encouragement for my decluttering, organizing, and moving preparations. Now my house is under contract and I have a plan that I can confidently follow. Thank you Maria! Susan Price

We are in the process of selling our home, and our realtor strongly suggested getting some help with our "stuff." Even though I knew I needed help, and in fact had started Marie Kondo's book (the life-changing magic of tidying up, but was still on page 1) I reluctantly called Maria White and we scheduled 3 hours. When Maria showed up, she came with her tool belt and her supplies (Sharpie marker, boxes, packing paper, labels, tape and no doubt more) and immediately made me feel comfortable. Maria, my realtor, Mary Williams, and I initially walked the house and then quickly made a plan as to what we could take on and finish within our 3 hour allotted time. Maria, then proceeded to do, what I have not have done for the last X years. She tackled our office ( a true treasure trove of miscellaneous and odd items) and proceeded to put like items together, pack them up, label the boxes and bring them to the basement. When she finished, our office closely resembled a place to think profound thoughts, and even more importantly my realtor approved. I highly recommend Maria and her services. She is affordable, thorough, respectful, and an exceptionally kind, hard and efficient worker. Had I known that she was available and that it would not be as traumatic as I thought, I would have employed her services years ago. Please do yourself a favor, if inertia, indecision, price, prohibit you from asking for help in the organizing department, fear not. Maria will help to put you at ease, make the job look simple and solve some issues in near record time. I am now on page 2 of Marie Kondo's book and hopeful that I can get to page 3 soonest.

I would highly recommend Maria White and her team at Enuff with the Stuff! Whether you are moving or just need help organizing around your home or office, their work, and more importantly their passion, cannot be beat! We recently moved and I hired Maria to help us unpack a 5 bedroom home. She and her team not only had everything unpacked but put away, organized and ready to use in less than 2 days! Maria’s services go well beyond simply unpacking and putting stuff away. She truly went above and beyond by including my children in the process and showing them the importance of organizing, which in turn made them excited about their new home and, to this day, they are taking pride in keeping their rooms organized! Throughout the process, Maria was also mindful of the fact that they had recently lost their father. Understanding this delicate situation, Maria was sure to include pictures and things that belonged to him in each of their bedrooms all the while handling the situation with profound grace. I only have one regret and that is that I didn’t have Maria come before the move to help us declutter before we packed!

"Maria White is every real estate agent's dream come true, and the true piece of the puzzle that puts everything literally in its place. As a very busy realtor I have had clients whose homes were so full of "stuff" that they had no idea how to prepare their home for sale. And given these scenarios, I would spend hours and days helping my clients sort thru their belongings and try to organize piles that we labeled "keep", "donate", or "throw away. This year, I met Maria White, owner of Enuff With The Stuff, and my world has been a better place ever since!"

I can't say enough great things about Enuff With The Stuff!!! My daughter is an avid artist. She creates stuff constantly, non-stop, every chance she gets. It's amazing to watch, but it was challenging my mommy skills (and my sanity!)...trying to keep it all sorted in a way that honors her talent without over-cluttering our home. We built a craft room onto her bedroom when we designed our house because we knew from past experience we'd need a gallery-of- containment. Shanelle has been creative since birth. But the craft room was filled from floor to ceiling and every cabinet/drawer in between within a year. Big sigh. That's when Maria White, owner of Enuff With The Stuff, rescued us. She's been in business for a very long time. Maria didn't just come and get everything organized. She invested a lot of time, getting to know my personality and Shanelle's. She gave me parenting tips that I'm still using...on how to coach Shanelle into being accountable for her own stuff. Lots of positive reinforcement AND consequences!...not just for Shanelle...for me too. I was missing the mark, and Maria's tough-love approach did wonders for getting us on track. Maria sent a ton of out- of-the-box ideas and systems by email, that were tailored for our issues, our collective design tastes, and the pre-teen that Shanelle was evolving into. Shanelle's room looks like a showplace now...but it's setup in a way that SHE can maintain. She's still creating new treasures daily. You wouldn't believe how much she's made during Storm Sandy alone. :o) The transformation is incredible, and now I don't spend every weekend nagging Shanelle to clean up her space.

Maria White from Enuff With The Stuff is the best organizer I have ever hired; she is probably the best there is. I was very wary of hiring another organizer, having hired 2 in the past and not really having been helped by them. They were well-intentioned but they just did not have the skills. And I have read books and books on how to get organized, (I've read them all - Julie Morgenstern, Feng Shui books on clutter - just every book there is) and though I had made improvements, I still was having troubles. So I had little hope that there was anyone who could help. But Maria looks at a room, even a room like my office that is completely overrun with stuff and a shambles, and immediately knows how to organize it, and organize it in such a way that you can keep it organized. Really, she is like some kind of miracle! After all these years of suffering with clutter, and running into wall after wall with every solution I tried, she walked in and gave me such simple solutions that were easy to carry out, and they worked! And she worked with me based on how I work, instead of trying to force my work methods into some kind of "organizer" pigeonhole. She didn't tell me to stop having so many projects, or finish one before I start the next - she gave me concrete ways to keep the projects available and neat while I worked a bit on one or a bit on the other, which is how I tend to get things done. I could not recommend her more highly.

"Maria helped us to identify dozens of areas where we could improve our home's appearance and get it ready for showing. When we put our house on the market we were confident that it was looking its best"
Dianna Solis – Home Organizing
The playroom part of the basement was always a disaster...My kids never knew where anything was so they would make huge messes in order to find things to play with. Not any more! With the tips and suggestions of Maria as well as getting rid of a ton of stuff, playing and cleaning up is so much easier now for the kids. All of the rooms in my basement now have a purpose. It will be very easy to keep them that way since I now have some great systems in place that will assist me as well as my children. I am so pleased with how my basement turned out.

Please call Maria for organization ideas in your home. You'll be SO glad you did! "Here arrives this bundle of energy who sped through organizing our clean-up and move-out like disciplined wildfire. She cured our cold feet about parting with 21 years of junk. She mediated tensions between "his" and "hers." She knew all the trade tricks, local rules and resources. Most of all, she was a tonic for the morale of two beaten-down householders facing a monumental task. Maria made us deal with it, all three of us working together like a well-drilled army."
Jessica and Ed Curtis- Home Organizing
Working with Maria was such a pleasure. She made the job at hand seem easy and fun. Faced with mounds of papers and junk that were choking us, as well as furniture that was way too large for our space, we not only reclaimed our office space, but also got our lives back. Maria also suggested a filing system that has simplified our records and helped us keep the space clean and pleasant to work in. I have highly recommended Maria to many friends who are in need of simplifying their spaces and their lives.

Maria White, a professional organizer with Enuff With The Stuff, is located in Northern Virginia and I bought a new house in New Mexico. I had a very disorganized kitchen in so many ways and I did not know how to make my beautiful new kitchen work efficiently so I called Maria for a virtual consultation. I e-mailed Maria and asked her if she would help me with my kitchen and she instructed me to open all of my cabinets and take pictures and e-mail them to her right away. She called me a couple of hours later and meticulously reviewed each and every inch of my kitchen clutter with me and presented solutions. When I did all of the things that Maria told me to do, I took after pictures and e-mailed them to her for her review. I could go on and on about the countless wonderful ideas that Maria gave me to make my kitchen work but instead, contact Maria…she’s a genius and a joy to work with. My life is much less stressful and I love my kitchen! Thank you Maria!!!"
