Take Control of Your Clutter Before it Takes Control of You! Class
"Once Jacquie is made aware of your situation, she develops a plan with successful results! She's a true professional!"
J.Riley, Columbia MD
"Jacquie has an eye for detail. She is that rara avis among professional organizers.Her attention to the smallest element makes her an excellent organizer. Her acumen gives her great insight into what is needed and what is not.
I would recommend her services to anyone needing to organizer their home, their office or their life."
Jeff Underwood, CEO UNcommon Homes, Columbia, Maryland
“CastAway the Clutter!, championed by Jacquie Ross is one of the most professional, courteous and dynamic service organizations with which I have ever hired. When Jacquie arrives for, she hits the ground running. She politely asks what your goals are and then begins to separate clutter into various bins. For example, when Jacquie and I began work in my kitchen, an area that was virtually unusable, within two hours she had transformed it into a pristine kitchen. Jacquie is courteous, friendly, and imaginative and goal focused. She accomplishes what she promises within the time contracted. She also assertively but comfortably discusses her company’s terms and conditions.
Jacquie truly gives value for her time. She moves quickly to separate items into their appropriate bins. She helps when you're uncertain whether to keep, trash or donate an item. She never slows down, which is great. One thing I like is that she's willing to get her hands dirty.
I do not give great references frequently. Jacquie's business is outstanding. She is participative, friendly, professional and successful. She's also honest. Her hourly or packaged rates are more than fair. CastAway the Clutter! deserves the highest rating I give, dependable, fair, goal-focused, and therefore, outstanding.”
"Jacquie was extremely easy to work with. Great personality. Very upbeat and good energy. She was very helpful in my kitchen and my master bedroom sitting room and gave me lots of ideas I could use myself. Jacquie is very talented, helpful and professional and I would recommend her services to anyone."
Nancy Brennan, Clarksville, MD
I wanted to send a quick note just saying thank you very much for your insights and ideas for organizing my home office and other areas of my home. They were refreshing and eye-opening. You gave me things to think about that would have probably never come to my mind. Believe it or not I considerd the consultation invaluable and I look forward to working with you on future projects in my home. One of several goals this year is to have my entire house organized, and now I know I definitely want it professionally organized with you.
Thanks again and much success. God bless you and I look forward to working with you again.

Thank you for coming to my home to help me with organization strategies for my home office.
You not only gave me hands on help in rearranging areas for better function, you walked me through an online office program I already had but wasn't utilizing.
I now have a functional "neat" area next to my computer, holding the printer and other items I use more often. In doing so,
an area was cleared from my bookshelf for office stationary. It was nice that you used my own bins & baskets to a better advantage.
You assessed my needs for filing, setting reminders, & task lists, then showed me how to access ways to track them on the computer. I plan to enjoy these shortcuts to save time and to have a clearer picture of my daily business plan.
“We were snowed under with years of old paperwork, household clutter and debris. Jacquie’s remarkable organizing skills brought us back from the brink of oblivion. CastAway the Clutter is fast, efficient, professional and essential for any household or business that needs to maximize the use of their space. Jacquie Ross is outstanding.”
