"Once Rachel de-cluttered and organized our basement, it was as if a heavy weight had lifted off my shoulders. Not only did we suddenly have a (labeled!) place for everything requiring storage, but it could all be easily found! This soon led us to de-clutter and organize other parts of our home, including the kitchen's all-purpose junk drawer. We're so thankful Rachel put us on the path to creating more space and calm by helping us rid our home of unnecessary stuff. I recommend her to every mom and dad I know."
“I hired Rachel to assist me with family finances. I had a budget in place that wasn’t being used. She helped me to review my actual money movement amongst many different accounts and create an accurate budget. She set me up with a systematic approach for tracking cash flow. With a greater knowledge of where exactly my money is being spent, I will be able to save money towards higher goals. I haven’t even begun using the system yet & I feel clarity and greater ease in my life! “

"Rachel of Make Peace With Organizing is amazing!! I am a working mom of 2 kids, and she helped me sift through years of accumulated papers, books, magazines, dvd’s etc in my living room - and it is now an organized, more enjoyable space for my family. With systems in place to keep it that way. We moved on to my kitchen, which I thought was not bad but she helped me to create so much more space than I thought I had. If you feel like you’re in a pinch to make dinner on weeknights and frustrated in finding the right pot or utensil, and everyone in your house feeds on that stress... Rachel is the one to call."
"Rachel is amazing at being able to look at a space an envision ways to make it most enjoyable and productive. She's a great listener and understands what her clients are trying to accomplish."
"I hired Rachel to help me with a small project and some big picture organizing ideas, and it was such a wonderful experience all around. She is positive, upbeat and personable, and she is undaunted by the size of any project. She pays close attention to detail. I found it incredibly helpful to have an outside perspective to help me organize my space. She suggested great things that I would never have thought of. I plan to hire Rachel for more projects!"
"Rachel is fantastic. I told her what I needed help with and she did just that. So great to have a motivator to help you get to the clutter that has been nagging at you forever. Great to have another pair of eyes to help you see a different perspective and get great advice at tackling organizing. Highly recommend!!!"
"I was happy to work with Rachel on my organizing home project. My goal in spending a few hours over a couple of days to organize our main living areas was achieved thanks to the magic, assistance and expertise of Rachel. I loved working with her because she’s disciplined, non-judgmental, caring and effective. I am planning on working with her again in a few months to bring order to our garage, basement and attic. If you’re thinking about hiring Rachel to help you with your organizing projects, stop procrastinating and just do it. You’ll be amazed at how much you will accomplish working with her. You’ll enjoy the end product - a beautiful space where everything is in its own place and peace and harmony make your work, thinking and processing flow effortlessly. <3"
"I worked with Rachel from Make Peace with Organizing and she was fantastic! I had a lot of items I needed to clear out of my attic with little time to make it happen. Rachel stepped in and took care of all the steps necessary to make it a reality at a very reasonable cost!!!"
"Rachel was so easy and fun to work with. She helped get my office in order just before busy season kicked in, then we moved on to the kitchen cabinets. She is thoughtful and kind in helping to get rid of clutter."
"Rachel helped me get my office organized and it made such a difference! Rachel is so easy to work with and understands the particulars that are important to me as an Attorney. Thank you so much Rachel!"
"I am in the process of working with Rachel on my condo decluttering and organizing project. To date, we have completed 3 sessions, each one focusing on the big built in closets. In the last session, we turned what looked like a jam-packed entryway closet, into a storage area revealing lots of free space, complete with labels!!!!
Rachel is awesome! There is no judgement on the current state, only focus on what we can take action on. Each session she helps to stay on the task at hand, even with my 3 year old son "helping" us!
Before I called Rachel and asked for help, I was struggling to find time and motivation for home projects. Life was feeling heavy in my home environment and I felt as if daily tasks were a struggle. I was distracted and paralyzed by the overwhelm of a cluttered home. After our first session, I felt a huge relief and gave Rachel a hug signifying how grateful I was.
I look forward to my continued work with Rachel as we tackle other cluttered and disorganized spaces HIDING behind my ikea cabinets!!! And not to mention, that each session creates an ENERGY that allows me to continue work on my own between our sessions. My only regret is not calling for help sooner! So with that, do not hesitate to welcome Rachel into your home and begin your process to "Make Peace with Organizing!""
"Rachel of Make Peace with Organizing is dedicated to helping make lives simpler through organizing and creating systems to keep you on track! She’s savvy and personable and committed to listening to her client and creating the best strategy to manage day to day life. With today’s busy world, she’s an invaluable resource to any household. Highly recommend!"
"I own a couple of CrossFit and a boot camp gym in Salem and MHD Ma. I had Rachel come in and help me with our merchandise area which was very unorganized until she came and did her magic. We have since more than doubled our merchandise sales and people love how it is organized and have said “they had no idea this was a merchandise area before.” I highly recommend Rachel and Making Peace with Organizing."
"Do you want to be stress free? Rachel will make that happen for you! She is has a talent that a lot of people lack and is very trustworthy. I would refer her to anyone needing to organize any part of their life! 5 stars Rachel!!"
"Rachel helped one of my senior clients when she sold her house. She helped my client get her house ready to show, which made the sale much easier. She also helped my client organize, pack and move, and unpack and organize in her new home. My client was thrilled! Rachel did a fabulous job."
"Rachel knows how to gently persuade would be hoarders to part with items. She worked with my husband on cleaning out his large closet, which had an accumulation of over 10 years of clothes. She took many bags of clothes to be donated at several places. Rachel was very patient with my husband and methodically went through every item (and there were a lot!) in the closet. The end result was an organized closet of clothes where he could finally see everything that was available to wear. If you have an unorganized mess/space, I highly recommend calling Rachel to help you get organized."
"Rachel is super responsive and professional. She brings not only her advice to the table but her amazing character and trustworthy personality. As a local realtor, I always look forward to the opportunity when I can refer Rachel to my clients. Whether it's preparing a home to sell and helping with removing clutter and packing to assisting new buyers get settled and organized into their new home, Rachel is always up for a project! I am grateful to know her!"
"Rachel doesn't just tell you how to get organized — she gets her hands dirty! She helped us transform our attic, bathroom, and laundry room with great organizing tools and techniques."
"I highly recommend Make Peace with Organizing! Rachel organized my attic and garage and I feel like I have years added to my life. Thanks to Rachel and Make Peace with Organizing I was able to enjoy time with my family instead of spend weeks organizing these two spaces in my house. Rachel is profession and extremely efficient and gets the job done quickly. Thank you Rachel and Make Peace with Organizing!!!"
"Loved hiring Rachel and Make Peace with Organizing. We tackled my attic, and I feel like I lost 20 lbs. It was in a total mess from moving in 18 months ago with a toddler and newborn and having no time to organize anything ahead of time. Rachel empowered me to donate and trash many items that I hadn't touched the whole time that we've lived in the house. I'm looking forward to having her back to organize my basement!"
"Rachel is EXACTLY what I needed! Rachel is your first and last stop when looking for professional organizing assistants! She has a methodical approach to her skill practice, and I couldn’t have found a better teacher!!! She is able to adapt her expertise to my specific needs/wants and I cannot stop raving about her work!! I admit, I have difficulty finding “homes” for items, but now that Rachel has shown me specific ways of homing things, I have been able to follow her lead, on my own, and I tell you, it’s like a weight has been lifted! Yes, I have more work to do, but with Rachel’s guidance and teaching, my foggy path has been made much clearer, and that was within the first session she met with me! I am excited to continue seeking Rachel’s professional organizing expertise because she is teaching me skills from her heart, not treating me like a number on her to do list. Bravo Rachel!! I am forever grateful🙏🏼💫!"
"We moved into a new house when I was 36 weeks pregnant and I literally could not have done it without Rachel. She unpacked and organized our entire kitchen. She went to the container store and bought the perfect items that would work with our space. She also went through all of my old toiletries and medicines and we tossed what was old or past expiration. She was able to fit all of our kitchen items into a much smaller space because we had downsized. Everything is perfectly placed and so organized. I can’t recommend her enough!"
"As a realtor, I recently referred Rachel to one of my clients selling a home she lived in for over 50 years. Rachel was instrumental with helping her clean out the house and sell items online. Rachel saved my client a lot of time and stress....I'd highly recommend Make Peace with Organizing for any sellers that need to organize and declutter their homes before putting them on the market."
"Rachel is my go to person when my clients need help simplifying their lives by decluttering, organizing and creating a system to make their lives easier whether they need help to distill through years of belongings to make a move, need help setting up a kitchen, office, or tackling the chaos of a children’s room. Rachel has a special knack for listening and understanding her client’s needs whether large of small. I highly recommend!"
"I hired Rachel to help me organize my apartment, she is wonderful and I had a great time working with her!"

"I have worked with several organizers and what is unique about Rachel is she matches your pace. What we did in a few hours would have taken me days alone. It is a pure pleasure to work with Rachel and her work ethic is unmatched! I feel so happy with what we accomplished together!"
"It was an absolute pleasure to work with Rachel! She helped me organize both my kid's playroom and our storage room downstairs. We accomplished so much in 2 short sessions. Rachel is very efficient at what she does and I highly recommend her for your organizing needs!"
Rachel is a gem to work with and has provided a lot of support to our family as we reimagine how to use the space in our home. What I love about working with her is how she approaches each space as an opportunity and takes into account the entire home and how to make efficient and effective choices that will make the best impact. For instance, we were grossly underutilizing a guest room that we repurposed with her help and it's something we didn't even think about until she pointed it out. We've made a lot of progress so far and can't wait to continue on this organizational journey with her!
Rachel was extremely helpful when we cleaned out my mother’s home. She packed and organized everything and got it to where it was supposed to go. She made everything easy and painless during a sad and stressful time and she always had a smile on her face. I would totally recommend Rachel!
I had a couple of wonderful experiences with Rachel both in our old condo, and at our new house. She has the eye for detail, drive to finalize projects and heart to understand the value of things to keep or not, even when their not her own. She's patient, efficient and full of ideas. I hesitated to have her come the first time, thinking that I could do it on my own. Afterwards, I realized it was the best decision I made. She helped create a small space cluttered with anything that could fit on the shelves or in the area into a more functional space. In addition, somehow managed to make our garage "larger" and lesson the amount of bins of old materials. It was truly amazing. She also gave me the momentum that I needed to create more functional spaces in our home. I would highly recommend her amazing service.
Thanks to Rachel, my work desk space is less chaotic. That in itself is amazing. I don't spend what little time I have searching for things like I did before. Making a productive space with everything thing I need in arms reach while getting rid of things I really didn't need helps me get down to business instead of feeling overwhelmed. She made a functional workspace and found where things get bogged down, we addressed those issues and efficiency is much better. The simple but effective lessons will impact other areas of my life besides work. I see things differently now and really don't want to go back to how it was before. I would highly recommend Rachel's services for your business or home.

Rachel has been such a tremendous help bringing some order to our home. I initially reached out to her for some help managing toys and toy storage. She has since offered help in various other areas of the home (many of which I didn’t realize could use improvement) like bathroom, kitchen, entry way, etc. Rachel offers suggestions for subtle changes that make huge impact on the function and aesthetics of our home. Her help has been a game changer!
Rachel has worked wonders in my kitchen and especially my pantry! I did not realize how terrible it was until she cleaned it up for me. Everything is much more functional and I have a place for my things. She also made my “junk” drawer have a purpose. I recommend Rachel and her organization services to everyone.
I have ADD and have had years of clutter all over my house especially in my bedroom. Rachel Beth Carlino-Dangora has helped me tremendously. She helped me declutter and then she helped me organize my bedroom in a way that didn't allow me to place things on flat surfaces or bookcases that were not working not working their intended purposes. She help me find other ways to be able to stay organized instead. Now we are working on the kitchen. We decluttered and now she is coming back to implement the organizing. My kids were already super excited their snack drawer was organized and they can see what is there. I have been able to maintain my bedroom nicely since Rachael has started coming. Let me know if you want any other information. She is totally worth every penny. Also, once we started it was like and addiction. I want my whole house to be organized so that my 2 girls, my husband and I can live a less cluttered life and have more fun with each other.
"I have been so grateful to have found Make Peace with Organizing to work with in organizing my home. It had gotten to the point where I would go into certain areas (basement/playroom, guest room/clutter storage) and just stand there completely frozen without knowing where to start and becoming increasingly anxious. As a psychotherapist I knew I needed to work with someone who had both the organizing skills as well as the soft skills of patience, flexibility, understanding and humor. Rachel has been all those things and so much more. Her guidance has been invaluable as well as her willingness to help with whatever was needed to make progress. We are about halfway through and the relief is real! Thank you!"
"Rachel has a passion for organizing that transcends the practical needs of her clients. The name of her business says it all, she understands that organizing the chaos in our physical space gives us more time to focus our energy on what matters most. Don't underestimate how much your clutter affects you, reach out to Rachel, you'll feel so much better!!"
It was such a pleasure working with Rachel! She helped me and my husband organize our attic. We accomplished so much in just one session and she gave us practical and easy to follow next steps to turn our attic into a functioning office. Rachel is not only very efficient, but also very kind and easy to talk to. I highly recommend her for your organizing needs!
Rachel goes above and beyond to help her clients by bringing peace and tranquility back to their homes or offices. She can visualize the best use of any space and has an arsenal of tools at her disposal, along with the experience to put together an organization plan for any client request. If you need to bring order to your home or workspace, definitely reach out to Rachel!
We hired Rachel to help us organize our kitchen (a tough job, since our house is from the 1880s and the cabinets are all wonky dimensions). She made the entire process SO easy and the result is beyond anything we could have imagined! The pictures speak for themselves.
Do yourself a favor and hire Rachel to help you organize ANY space in your home - You won't regret it!
Rachel has helped me organize my small condo so well! She’s helped us repurpose our second bedroom to get ready for our first baby. Rachel gave us practical tips to keep us on track. We literally feel more at peace in our home with the help of Rachel! Thank you!!!
Rachel is an amazingly talented organizer and creative collaborator! She gave us the motivation and vision to transform the spaces within our home to feel more open and inviting. Attached is a photo of Rachel and my daughter going through our children’s toys, games, and miscellaneous items. It was priceless to have her support through this process. I highly recommend Rachel to all of my family, friends, and clients!
Rachel is the best! She is not only amazing at what she does, but very relatable and supportive, not to mention extremely hard working (eats her lunch on the job, literally)! It was so refreshing to have someone work along side you in the process to bring some ease and efficiency back into your every day life through organizing. Rachel does not judge and you can tell she is genuinely excited to be doing what she does, thank goodness for her lucky clients she made the move into the professional organizing field…She is a pleasure to be around and I look forward to our next sessions- life changing, thanks Rachel!
Rachel is a phenomenal organizer. She helped us pack up our house for our move and then unpack at the new house. She made moving with small children so much easier than it normally is! Every space she organizes looks and functions wonderfully.
I have now worked with Rachel on several projects after moving. She has been a huge help organizing areas from home office to unpacking to the children’s rooms and bathrooms. I highly recommend her for any projects big or small. Her pricing is fair and her quality is outstanding. We plan to continue using her as we settle into our new home.
Rachel is an amazing organizer. I was drowning in clutter and it was making it hard to feel good about my home. She came in, no judgement, and literally cleaned house. Rachel was so helpful in having me purge items, use a system that matches my organizing style, and ultimately made me feel better about my home. I am very thankful for her services and recommend her to everyone.
Rachel and her team did a phenomenal job tackling a big storage basement area that was a disaster. She even purchased the boxes and movable stands to put the boxes, labeled everything and made the best of a small space. Many thanks!
Rachel has been my go-to person for several years when prospective residents or their families need help with downsizing and/or planning a move to our Assisted Living community. She is a fantastic organizer, and also builds a strong rapport with her clients. She makes what seems overwhelming to her clients into a very manageable and enjoyable process!

Rachel is a life saver and really knows how to maximize space. I have some challenging projects and a mess with 3 kids and many pets! She helped me implement a system that will work for me and the kids and something so easy to keep up! I am doing many more projects with Rachel and am forever grateful for her help! Great service!

If you want to bring your home and life into peaceful order, Rachel Carlino-Dangora of Make Peace with Organizing is the person you should contact. She is a fantastic organizer and a wonderful resource to guide you through a 'sea of stuff!'
We have loved having Rachel’s help as we decluttered our previous home and are organizing our new home. Rachel always arrives with a plan and a smile! She is patient, knowledgeable, kind, thoughtful, respectful, creative, resourceful, visionary, organized, motivating... and so much more. Our time together passes quickly and I am always amazed at what we can get accomplished in our sessions. To keep projects moving, she is great at leaving us tasks to complete between visits as well as providing storage and organizing tips for our DIY projects.
Rachel breaks down large, overwhelming tasks during our time together and leaves me motivated to continue on my own until our next session! We continue to meet, as our new home is a work in process with renovations taking place. Rachel was kind enough to review and comment on layouts and plans, providing great insight for storage/organizational opportunities. This kind of work can be very personal and difficult to manage, but Rachel makes it simple and smooth.
I feel very fortunate to have found Rachel, to utilize her services, and to have made a friend along the way! I highly recommend Make Peace With Organizing and Rachel.
"Rachel is a great professional organizer and I would recommend her to anyone. She has wonderful ideas and can turn around any mess. She has so many tips and she has been so helpful, plus she's really fun to work with. She has really given great advice on purging and i have gotten rid of so much stuff that i never even needed. You won't go wrong hiring Rachel and you will be very happy you did."
I hired Rachel to come help me declutter my house this week. She came all the way up to New Hampshire. Rachael was so helpful, I can’t believe how much we got accomplished in just four hours. She left me with much less clutter in my house and some great systems to put in place. She even took everything with her!
Bailey, Exeter, NH
Rachel is the best! We consulted over the phone and when she came we cleaned and organized my daughters room. She left with the donations and I had a plan for purchasing a book shelf and storage, which she would have done for me but I wanted to do it. Her room looks great and she is able to maintain it. Thank you Rachel! I would highly recommend her services for any space in your home!
Rachel has been super helpful in getting high-use areas of our home more organized and functional so we utilize all our available space. She is great to work with and the projects have gone smoothly! I am super happy with our new space!
Alicia, South Hamilton
Rachel was SO helpful with organizing my house. She helped me to put things in places that actually make sense to me and keep my days running smoothly. She took into account my lifestyle, needs, visual preferences, as well as how my brain works!
Rachel came to my house the other day and had a wealth of information to share with me on downsizing. She's a treasure of smarts and a lovely woman. Highly recommended!
for helping me kick start the process of selling my home. Great help!!
Rachel did an amazing job helping me organize ALL my clothes! She was able to get everything organized, in one room, with room to spare. Rachel was very patient and kind when it came to deciding on what to keep and what to give away. There was no pressure or judgement. I found her process to be very easy and I don't believe I could have achieved the same result without her. She organized according to my lifestyle, daily habits and in a way that I could continue with moving forward. I HIGHLY suggest Make Peace with Organizing. I can't wait to have her back in June!
In just three short hours, Rachel helped me to organize my basement by categories and zones. She has a very gentle approach free of any judgement. I wasn’t pressured to throw anything away, but rather to put all related items together or in a more appropriate location such as the garage. She also utilized closets to create new storage areas- an idea that hadn’t occurred to me. I am so impressed at how she saw my space and found new ways to maximize its full potential.
"I've been so thankful for Rachel's help! She has helped organize my kitchen, living room and play area/finished basement. She's great to work with and helps me stay on task. She listens to the needs of my family of 6 and offers solutions that best meets our needs. So happy with this service!"
"Thank you so much Rachel! You are amazing! It has been so rewarding having you organize my home. Can't wait to have you back soon!"
"Rachel was such a huge help with tackling my kitchen organization project! Her approach is warm and direct. She is full of great ideas and helpful tools. 10/10 would recommend!"
"I simply would not have been able to declutter and move my office without the help of Rachel and her staff. They handled everything perfectly."
Rachel has been an amazing help to me as I've worked on getting my house in order. I had a number of projects in most areas of my house that I knew that I *could* do on my own - but I just wasn't getting to them. Rachel came over and not only helped me to get to work organizing stuff that had been lingering in disorganization for far too long, but she also suggested great ways of pulling things together going forward that have been working extremely well for me and my family. One of the best things - at the end of the session when you're ready to make a bunch of donations, instead of those bags lingering around your house, she brings them with you and makes the donations on your behalf (with a small additional fee). TOTALLY WORTH IT! If you are on the fence, definitely work with Rachel - she is awesome and your house (and sanity!) will thank you.
