What people are saying about The Organized Sort
Copyright @ The Organized Sort
has an artistic eye and an ability to make order out of chaos. A graphic designer for much of her career, Martha has created striking logos and updated design schemes with her sense of scale and color. Along the way she also impressed colleagues with her knack for organizing paperwork.
Martha spent some time working for an estate sale company sorting through closets and drawers to find valuable items for sale.
Organizing comes naturally to Martha. In her own home, she has curated family art and heirlooms. She is always devising clever storage strategies for regular household items - a skill she has used to help friends and family members make their living spaces shine. Martha realized that she could combine all these talents into a professional organizing business.

Areas of expertise include: closets, kitchens, home offices, storage rooms, furniture placement, photo archiving (both digital and paper), photo books, and digital scrapbooking. She employs discretion in accordance with National Association of Productivity and Organizing Professionals (NAPO®) Code of Ethics.
In her spare time, Martha loves traveling, theatre, art galleries, hunting for Mid-Century Modern treasures, and spending time with friends and family. You might also spot Martha cruising around town in her electric blue 1979 Camaro Z28, which she has driven cross-country, twice!
Martha is currently serving as Vice President on the NAPO-WDC Board of Directors. As of October 2020, Martha is serving the Southern California area!
I can’t believe what a huge accomplishment organizing 40 years of my parent’s lives this is. I could not have done it without you. Your gentle manner, and solid experience bolstered my spirits and enabled me to make labeled, accessible order out of boxes of chaos.
My mind feels free!

Martha blew me away with her artistic and timely assembly of our wedding album. The first time I saw it, I cried. I can't believe I waited so long to work with Martha. She's not just amazing, she is incredible! Martha organized, arranged, cropped when appropriate, and laid out approximately 200 photos beautifully into the album. Highly recommend. Hire her now.

Martha Blumenthal, of The Organized Sort, was recommended to me by another professional organizer. That's right, recommended by her peer.
Martha is calm (didn't bat an eye when she first saw the chaos), systematic, and creative. Really enjoyed working with her and appreciate being able to tap into her years of experience and organizational expertise.

After several years of contemplating a re-do for my basement, I made the leap and found Martha to organize the project. Without Martha’s help, I don’t know how it could have happened. She also advised on paint colors and other decorating aspects – she has a special interest and talent in design. She has done a professional job with my hanging my pictures. She LOVES doing these things. I’ve recommended her services to a friend who was very appreciative and complimentary.
In addition to all that, she has a sunny personality and is always fun and friendly, no matter what the task or weather!

Martha is my go-to organizer. Whether I'm trying to figure out how to organize a closet, drawer, or come up with the best way to display my art work for sale, hands down, Martha is the best! She is easy to work with, accommodating, and brilliant to watch in action. I highly recommend her for any organizing project big or small. She never disappoints!

Thank you for all your help in organizing my kitchen pantry. It's better than I envisioned.

When my mother closed our family home, I inherited boxes full of mementos that I needed to incorporate into an already small living space. Not only did Martha find clever ways to display my heirlooms, she also patiently worked with me to sort through an enormous backlog of stuff I had accumulated over the years.
Now, thanks to Martha, my living space is uncluttered - a huge stress reliever- and I get to enjoy my favorite acquisitions out in the open. Martha has a positive attitude and she is an absolute delight to work with.
