Our Story

The story is simple. We love to organize!


Janet has been organizing her whole life. For some people, it’s second nature. When the opportunity arose she started Basic Organization in 2005 hoping to help people find simplicity in their space.

She grew the business with people who bring unique skills to each client appointment. We are proud to be a leading organizing expert in Northern Virginia and Washington DC.

Janet is a Certified Professional Organizer and is a past member of the NAPO board of directors. She has also been recognized as the 2023 Professional Organizer of the Year by the Washington DC chapter of NAPO.

Janet’s superpower is planning! She loves managing the team and large client projects. Her background is in space planning and she offers an entire range of move management services. Janet loves “talking organizing” with everyone, so if you need a speaker for an event contact us.
