Organizing business opens doors
DULUTH -- Clutterninja, A professional organizing service has opened in Duluth, specializing in residential services.
Suzanne Willett launched the business as a way to combine her years of experience in retail management and staffing with her "love of everything clutter free."
Stated Willett: "Ten years in retail management and 10 years in the staffing industry found me organizing everything from large inventories to the massive volumes of paper associated with hundreds of contract employees.
"When I was looking across those experiences for what I enjoyed, organizing was the common thread," Willett stated.
The business considers all types of organzing projects but will initially focus on residential organizing services, "creating strategies for areas such as kitchens, closets, garages, kids' bedrooms and playrooms."
