Hi, I’m Jill, your nonjudgmental, compassionate organizing coach.

I live and work in Madison, Wisconsin, where I help clients organize so they can find stuff when they need it.

With 19 years in business, I’ve developed proven systems and methods that make clients feel supported, encouraged, and empowered while we work together.

I love what I do, and I want you to enjoy the process of decluttering, organizing, and paring down. I’m here to help, with zero judgment and an open heart.

Control the clutter (and have fun too!)


  • You’ve set organizing goals but don’t know how or where to start

  • You’ve bought organizing bins and don’t know what to do next

  • Your things need a home or need to go away and you struggle with decisions

  • You get frustrated when you’re trying to find an important document in your paperwork piles

  • You’re motivated and ready to be organized, you just need some direction and accountability...

Then you’re ready to get down to work with me.

Here's what my clients have to say about working with me

After working with Jill I feel so much better, less anxious and far less overwhelmed.


Very patient, concerned, great listener.


I cannot BELIEVE how much Jill has made a difference. She is so soothing and easy to work with. With Jill's help, I finally believe that I can do this. Those feelings of optimism and strength are the greatest gifts Jill has provided.


Working with Jill helped me clarify my end goal, take a big project and break it up into manageable parts, while feeling good about the progress made. Jill is focused, authentic and makes you feel at ease wherever you are starting.

I barely made it to our destination on this hike.  A cirque on a Colorado mountainside. Did you spot me in the lower righthand corner of the photo surrounded by expansive mountains? It felt incredible to get to this spot, sit down, breathe normally, refuel and take some time to enjoy nature while scanning the…

You don’t have to live like this

By Jill Annis | Simply Organized | June 1, 2021

The boxes haven’t been unpacked even though you moved a million years ago. Or, you moved last month, and the remaining boxes feel so hard.  This I understand; you’re overwhelmed.? ?
