Simplify Your Life


Hi, I’m Karen! 

I’ve been  serving clients as a professional organizer in Kansas City since 2015. With a background in marketing and a life long side gig as a fitness instructor, I’ve found that keeping things organized is a way to create peace in your life and your mind. After learning the art of creating systems, managing projects and applying my eye for detail, I became the owner of Organizing-etc. 

I have helped countless clients in their homes and businesses and every day is fun and exciting!  Organization is so much more than shopping for beautiful bins. It’s about giving clients the tools needed to change habits and change their lives.

My mission is this:  Create spaces for families that are simple, functional and efficient so that they can truly enjoy life’s moments.

I’m so excited to do this for you.  Let’s get started!

Karen Swart, Owner, Organizing-Etc.
