I started out with Sorted Out thinking there was no way that I would ever use more than 10 hours with the service. I was dead WRONG. I was excited to have someone knowledgeable and yet so willing to listen and create a workable solution of my own idiosyncrasies. It is amazing how much more you can accomplish when “things” are in there logical place! Barbie has been invaluable for me, so much so when setting up my New York apartment I had her right beside me. It has been over two years since I met Barbie and I am grateful to have someone I can call to make life easier!

Barbie is incredible to work with and very detailed oriented. She has organized three houses over the last five years for me. Barbie makes sure that it is not just organized but functional for every day life as well. She’s handled projects big and small and always exceeds expectations. I would highly recommend her for any project you may have.

Innvision Hospitality, Inc.

Over the last year, Innvision Hospitality has had the privilege of working with Tonia, and the team at Sorted Out.

In the fall of 2016, Innvision made the decision to find a strategic partner who would help one of our team members grow to the next level – the barrier was lack of organization. As our company grew, and the team member’s client base grew, we recognized that the workload was out growing our how our team member managed the fundamentals of her daily routine. Since the team member has such great success with Sorted Out, we decided to share the basic fundamentals taught by Sorted Out to our team member with everyone in the company. We invited Sorted Out to our annual meeting, where Tonia and one of her consultants, facilitated a workshop for all our team members to attend. They learned the fundamentals managing their day, their tasks and their emails. As a result of the workshop, our company adopted a policy that each team member has specific one hour block of time in their day designated as uninterrupted time. The return on the investment has been tremendous.

Good day Ms. Tomlin,

I have finally settled down long enough to take a few moments of time to send you and Tammy a “BIG THANK YOU “ note for the services you provide through your company! Your appearance on Good morning Texas was a God send for me! Then assigning Ms. Tammy O’Neil to my project or her accepting it was the next God send! I appreciate Tammy’s calm, patient, and kind demeanor. She helped me tailor my sorting sessions to 15 minutes from my overwhelming hour I had assigned myself and was not accomplishing much but frustration. This has helped me manage my time much better and still be accomplished in the short timeframe. She helped me and my husband with our “expectations” being that I have a perfectionistic, overachiever mentality 90% of the time. Tammy is thoughtful about the needs of her clients and goes above and beyond to empower her clients to take charge of their organizing needs. She exceeded my expectations for the help I needed and I am THANKFUL for her getting me started on my journey and giving me tools (releasing and my challenge question when stuck) and the support to complete my organizing feats!!!

Thanks to both of you many times over and may God continually Bless You individually and your company!

Margaret Harris from Sorted Out is fantastic! She started on my home office where she did a complete overhaul which included: creating files as well as organizing what I had in place, purging TONS of clutter, rearranging wall full of shelves and improved the flow of the work space. Now everything is organized, labelled and so much easier to access! From there, I used Margaret for almost every area in my house. She totally re-worked my master walk-in closet, storage area, kitchen/pantry, master bathroom, game room, children’s rooms and closets, linen closet and garage. Working with Margaret from Sorted Out is the best gift I have ever given myself!

John and Jennifer Gooch

We have used Margaret Harris’ services for many organization projects like our garage and our office/study, and most recently during our ongoing house remodeling. Each time, we come away believing it was money more than well spent. Not only were the end-results awesome, her very structured and efficient process of tackling these projects was quite good. She was adept at helping us through difficult decisions we needed to make as we decided not only how things should be organized, but also when to let go of old things. She always has ideas for organizing that we never even considered. We cannot recommend Margaret enough for getting your house into a shape that is not only satisfying, but just a joy to live in and even show off to friends and family!


Michele Gooch

I recently hired Margaret Harris to help me organize my move from an apartment to a home I bought. Margaret came to me upon glowing referral from my daughter-in-law and I had already observed the kind of work she had done for her. I cannot express how much Margaret helped me both getting ready for the move and organizing afterwards. She works with amazing speed and takes into account your needs while making great suggestions to organize to that end. I now know where everything I own is and can easily locate anything due to the great labeling and organization by type Margaret does. No longer will I not know where something is or buy something I already have! I highly recommend Margaret and consider using her services as money very well spent.


BJ Ellis

Dallas, Texas

Sorted Out provided outstanding organizing services recently when I needed to relocate my elderly mother to another room in a different wing at her assisted living. From the moment I talked with her, Tonia Tomlin was so kind and understanding about the situation. She recommended her Sorted Out team member and senior organizer, Alyce Horvath, to assist me with the move. Alyce is so friendly and easy to get along with. At the assisted living, Alyce was focused and worked diligently with me that day to de-clutter the old room; get the new room arranged efficiently for maximum space and comfort; as well as making it accessible and safe for my mother, who uses a walker. Alyce organized the chest of drawers, bathroom cabinet, and closet space. Alyce artfully hung family photos, a mirror and pictures on the wall. Alyce even brought a gift of mini-chocolate bars for my mother–how sweet and thoughtful! Mother smoothly transitioned to her room. Dealing with an elderly parent can be so stressful–I could not have done this without Sorted Out’s help that day. I highly recommend–10 Stars!

Thanks again for your organizing excellent services!



Thanks Alyce! My husband was just saying how happy with the garage he is and that he may be able to improve it be getting rid of more items!  You were so helpful and a great resource as well. Thank you for this invaluable service!

Hopefully we can call on you again to help us with our garden shed!


Robin Zweig

GMT Closet Makeover Winner

I was overjoyed to have the Sorted Out team come to give my disastrous closet a makeover! The expertise of Tonia Tomlin, Traci Olivares, and Brandy Fyffe was invaluable. I can’t thank you enough! I had so many clothes that would not fit on my racks anymore. They helped me sort out what I truly needed to keep. They added a new closet system including drawers that were far more functional. Now my cleaner, neater closet has a whole new look, and I can find my clothes easier.

Julie Browning

Mother of Twins

I heard Tonia Tomlin speak recently at a convention for Mothers of Twins and Triplets. She spoke about organizing closets, playrooms, and toy chests. She also discussed ways to save all that school artwork that comes home. The presentation was excellent and allowed plenty of time for questions and answers. Tonia became one with the audience. She passed around samples of some of the products she recommends for organizing as well has had very useful handouts. I was disappointed when the session ended. I highly recommend any speaking engagement to be held by Sorted Out!

Kirby Stuart

I contacted Sorted Out & Tonia to help me organize my kitchen and pantry of my apartment. In no time, Tonia had completely updated and organized my kitchen. Everything flows and works together all while a system that I love and will use daily. Never underestimate what can be done in 4 hours time! My home is totally different and it’s thanks to Sorted Out. Tonia’s vibrant personality and wonderful organizing tips get you excited to get your house in order. The tips she gave me will stick with me in other areas of my home life. You don’t have to be buried in clutter to use the priceless services of Sorted Out, sometimes you just need a little help getting a system together. Tonia and her team will be a part of my home and business life for many years to come.

Janie Gilkison

The Junior League of Plano

Tonia spoke to the Junior League of Plano at one of our FUNdamentals programs. She presented valuable information on a number of organizing challenges. As the hostess of the program I found Tonia very easy to work with and well prepared. Her talk was filled with great ideas and she presented her information with enthusiasm and humor.

I believe her presentation would be valuable to a number of other organizations.

Scott Mackinaw


I was having problems with getting accurate inventory counts and having too much inventory on hand. We are a small medical device manufacturing company and I just didn’t have time to internally correct the issues I was having.

I contacted Sorted Out from a referral and Tonia and her associates came into our offices and “sorted out” all inventory products including raw materials and tools. Because of her fresh ideas and knowledge, she put into place a system that allows me to have more control of inventory. I now get accurate counts in a timely manner and have reduced my inventory carrying cost by 50%.

Edward Roske and Family

Tonia Tomlin and her wonderful team of organizers did an excellent job on getting my household organized and ready to move. Without their efforts we would have not had a chance of being ready to move on time.

Tonia and her team were efficient, effective, and friendly. During 3 weeks worth of time they organized a 3 bedroom house including a very messy garage, and in the worst heat of the summer. They found things that we did not know that we had!

Tonia also recommend a cleaning lady and mover that we used and that have worked out well for us. All in all Tonia and her team were just what we needed when we needed them and we are very pleased with their work. We recommended Tonia and her team to anyone who needs to organize anything.

Sharon Easley

Attorney, Plano, TX

We employed Sorted Out to work with an employee of ours who lacks good organizational skills and who is, otherwise, a very good and loyal employee. Tonia has worked, not only to organize her, but to organize many aspects of our organization, all very successfully. She operates with little instruction and completes the tasks timely and efficiently. She has continued to meet regularly with our employee, who is performing much more efficiently. Not only has Tonia helped to improve our overall office efficiency, she has helped improve the skills of a very valued employee who, without Tonia’s help, was beginning to lose her value to us.

Renee Roach | Office Manager

Lone Star Cars, Inc.

Lone Star Cars, Inc. is a small but very successful independent automobile dealership. Our office is extremely busy and the paperwork is almost out of control. Six months ago in March 2007 we contracted with Sorted Out. From the very first day, the efficiency of the office, the clutter and the organization of the work improved. With each session the work becomes more productive, less stressful and better organized. The maintenance program is must to maintain the quality of the improvements this office experiences everyday. Thank you Sorted Out for improving our look as well as our productivity.

Jackie Roberts

Lone Star Cars, Plano, TX

Tonia we can’t thank you enough for organizing our office here at Lone Star Cars. We look forward to our maintenance program you have set up for us. Your expertise, encouragement, and knack for organizing have up lifted ALL of us. As a result, we are more productive in our office and can see a huge difference. See you next month! Please feel free to use us as a reference at any time.

Angie Christon

Tonia I can never thank you enough for all your help! You have been a blessing to me and our home. I cannot tell you how much time and money you have saved me by keeping all aspects of my life organized. All the systems you have helped me put into place from paperwork, to the kitchen, the kids toy room, my garage, everything has worked. You are the BEST! I cannot wait to have you back again next month!

Jennifer G

Thank you so much for organizing my pantry. It has never looked better. You worked so quickly and gave me so many great ideas. Now I am inspired to organize the rest of my kitchen. I tell everyone I know about you, and if you ever need a reference, please feel free to use me.

Jan T.

Tonia was incredible! She was so energetic and personable. I love how she worked so fast and helped me make decisions about my “stuff” without ever being judgmental. I was completely comfortable with her and now feel a huge burden taken off of my shoulders!

Shannon T.

As most people, the kitchen is the “heart” of the home. The one big problem in our “heart” was my pantry. It is a large walk-in pantry and it was – to say the least- a mess! It was full of “stuff” with no organization at all. I had several appliances (you know, the ones you see on TV that you must have) that I only use once in a while. My food was scattered here and there. Lots of food got pushed to the back and God only knows how long they had been there! Tonia came in and was very professional with lots of ideas on how to organize my pantry. She did a wonderful job and I could not be happier with my new – now organized – pantry! My husband even said that he feels sorry for the first person who messes it up!

Patricia Ann Cole

Graduate Gemologist (GIA), A.J.P. (GIA)

I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your assistance. Not only am I able to find phone numbers, emails, is etc., but the organization of my professional articles even more valuable. Few people know that in the gem and jewelry industry there are constant changes, new discoveries, and, most important of all, the synthetic and gem stone treatments today are very advanced. I cannot possibly house all the magazines. I simply take the articles that are most important in my business of jewelry appraisals. The binder categorizes the articles, and makes it easy to locate the information that I need. Thanks for the assistance.

Sherri Johnson | President

Pi Phi Moms of North Texas

Thank you so much for agreeing to speak to Pi Phi Moms. Everyone enjoyed your friendly relaxed manner and we all learned some great tips to help get us organized and to help our daughters stay organized as they move from home to college and back again. Your presentation was very informative and our group gained an enormous amount of information from the question and answer session.
Thank you again for helping us “sort it out”.

Curlytop Welch

th being a mom, time and organization is essential but hard to come by. So, when Tonia Tomlin from, Sorted Out, offered me both I jumped on it. Just the simple task of organizing all of my parenting magazines into an easy to use reference notebook has freed up my time tremendously. I just love it!

Steve Morrison

I have been a regular client with Sorted Out for over three years now. Tonia Tomlin and her associates have re-organized all my financial and personal records as well as my entire house. She coordinated my move into a new home and has helped me finish countless personal projects. Mike, with Sorted Out, re-worked my garage into a model of efficiency. I trust Tonia and her company to keep all my affairs in order.

Trey Sawtelle

Tonia and the Sorted Out Team were outstanding! They came into our aircraft maintenance service division and helped organize a very complex and intense system into a simplistic and efficient operation. I was very pleased with their professionalism and demeanor, and more importantly very impressed with how they were able to organize a system perfectly while have zero knowledge or experience in our industry. The cost of their services will be greatly outweighed by the efficiency they have developed! We will have them back soon to help with other projects and divisions.
