About me


Hello! My name is Charity Richardson and I am a professional organizer and the owner of Desperate Closets Organizing.

My husband calls me the Spatial Ninja. He is always amazed when I can eyeball an object and it fits magically into its intended space. This is a gift that I have always had. However, I am not naturally organized. I am an artist at heart. Growing up, I would cover my floor with paper, scissors and markers. My parents encouraged my creative side and didn’t mind the mess because they weren’t exactly organized themselves. I had to learn to be organized on my own. In high school, I traveled to France as an exchange student. I learned from my host family how they organized their home and kept up with their busy lives. In my career, I worked in the project management and customer service industries. I have a passion for reading home organizing and design books and have developed systems to keep my life and home clutter free. I love meeting new people and I have a passion for helping others improve their lives.

Our mission at Desperate Closets Organizing is to help you bring order back to your closet or other areas of your home and to provide solutions to help you stay organized. We help you to rediscover the peace of mind that comes from feeling good about your home or workspace. We will work with you to create functional systems that work with your personal style.

Whether your goal is to declutter your home, organize or redesign your closet, downsize your home, stage your home for sale, revitalize your wardrobe, downsize or move your household, we are here to help! We would love to answer your questions, explain our services or just get to know you and your needs. Please contact us today to set up your FREE consultation.

Thank you for considering Desperate Closets Organizing for your home organization project.

I look forward to working with you!

Your FREE initial consultation usually lasts about 1 hour, depending on your situation. During the consultation you will be asked a series of questions to find out what your goals, needs and style preferences. We will take pictures and measure the space to be organized.


During our second session we will begin the organizing process. Implementation sessions generally take three hours and are charged at the rate of $50/hour. We will make every effort to work within your budget by offering a variety of organizing options.


Regular maintenance visits can be booked for those who desire ongoing assistance maintaining their organized lifestyle.
