"I have nothing but wonderful
things to say about Bob Farkas and his services. He is excellent at
what he does. He is honest, trustworthy and always offers great
suggestions. He got my mom organized room by room, organizing every room
from the garage to the office to the bedroom and even the bathrooms.
Over the many years, he has not only helped her, but is now helping my
brother with various issues. I can truly say getting
my family members organized saved them a lot of money...in finding missing
checks, not having to buy things they already had in their home and just
saving them time. I only wish I didn't live so
far away so I can use him in my home!! He really is a lifesaver!!"
"It was a pleasure meeting you and working with you today, Bob.
I'm so proud of what we accomplished and for the first time in a very long time I'm getting excited
about this lifestyle change.
after the death of my mother I felt completely overwhelmed so I
hired you to
organize my life and reduce my stress. I
now have a system in place that is very functional and productive.
You were not only helpful in your organizational skills, you were
also a calming influence and a delight to work with."
"Bob Farkas and I have been
working to tackle my clutter and he is, by far, the most patient person
with whom I have had the pleasure of working. In truth, what started as
just trying to get my stuff organized, has turned into a long-term commitment
by Bob to help me in many areas of my life. I consider him
as much of a life coach as a professional organizer.
And, after my move to Chicago, Bob was very easily able to translate our weekly
in-person, hands-on, sessions into telephone consultations
that keep me focused and on track."
"Bob has been so careful and
caring and patient and calm as he's guided me through the
collected treasures and rubble of my life. With his gentle guidance
I've had the courage to trash and purge all the junk that has gotten
in the way of having a real home."
you are an eager worker, full of great
organizing ideas. Organizing our garage
was just the beginning. You truly facilitated the switching of my
son's room with our home office by creating a layout for our office
furniture. Wow! Our family and friends are still amazed that all our
furniture fits into our new, much smaller space. And just recently
you helped me rearrange the furniture in my son's bedroom to make
more room for our new baby. Thanks. You are
very open to suggestions and easy to work with.
What a blessing."
I cannot thank you enough for helping me out of the chaos of a
living room, an office, a bedroom...an entire new apartment full of
unpacked boxes staring me challengingly in the face.
Without your help and cheerful persistence, I would never have met that
as swiftly or as well. Now I can relax in my living room, cook
in my kitchen, sleep...well you get the idea. Thank you so much for
turning my apartment of boxes into a home I love."
"Bob, you helped me make my
office the envy of all my colleagues. Files are organized, papers don't
accumulate, books are shelved neatly and orderly.
I no longer lose valuable time searching for lost music, memos or papers.
you've given me back hours of precious
time each week."

of my desk. Today I'm happily able to locate
things in a timely fashion and I am able to work much more efficiently.
your organizing services are invaluable. I wish
I had used you years ago. You've saved me hours of time and effort.

suggestions and had great ideas on how to organize my home and home

You performed a miracle in my home by creating order

road to a clutter-free life. Thanks Bob."
"Thanks to you Bob Farkas,
The Clutter Wizard,
for the loving,
dedicated, inspired effort
you bring to the art of reducing clutter, organizing space and
reclaiming control throughout my
home and work space. I appreciate how you take a
approach to these
tasks and maintain a sense of ownership in keeping the process moving
forward. Your initial approach included taking time to look at the
larger picture before proceeding. You introduced me to professionals
in related fields and you even brought catalogs with discount coupons
for buying storage support items such as file cabinets and storage
containers. I am so grateful to you for all your support."
thanks for helping my mother go through the mountain of papers and
who-knows-what that she had accumulated through the years. She was
overwhelmed by the task and had been putting it off.
You made the
process painless and enjoyable.
You and she carefully sifted through at least a
dozen boxes, tossing or donating things she no longer needed and
organizing things she wanted to keep. Now, my mother can find things,
some of which she had forgotten she even had!"
thanks to you I was able to get rid of many
things that I no longer needed
You helped sort through things that I had saved over many years from my
three children and I was finally able to send it off to each of them.
"It is characteristic of
wisdom not to do desperate things.
The smartest thing I have done was to call you,
The Clutter Wizard."
"Bob Farkas a.k.a.
The Clutter Wizard,
you've helped me sort through more than 40 years of personal and
business papers, memorabilia, etc. My bedroom and closets were so
overloaded with boxes that it was too out-of-control to tackle by
myself. Bob, your patience, conscientiousness
and organizing expertise
turned my overcrowded, cluttered apartment back into
a real home."
Wizard, thank goodness for you! Your
organizing expertise has made such a
difference. Bob, you had so much patience
. You sorted, categorized, bought storage
boxes, labeled and created a home for all my kids' toys and all my
personal and work papers. You created an easy-to-use, color-coded
filing system and even made an 8-page illustrated guide showing where
all the toys belong. You are efficient,
gracious and very easy to work with. I'm
extremely pleased and I'll definitely call on you again."
"Bob, thank you for your
in creating an easy-to-use filing system for my home office.
I've been trying to stay on par with the receipt filing and
continuing to toss and put away things as I get them.
You've gotten me off to a great start."
"Bob, thanks for
on track and focused.
With so many responsibilities, I often start on one thing and don't
get back to it for a long time resulting in all the clutter you've
had to deal with. Thanks to you I have an office I can actually use.
My desk and floor aren't constantly covered with piles of papers, my
supplies are in order and easily accessible, I can actually see
what's inside my desk drawers and my files are in better shape than
ever. I am always so pleased after each of
our organizing sessions.
"I'm always amazed at the

you are fabulous!
All my rooms --
garage, bedrooms, kitchen, bathrooms, utility room,
a miracle of organization and are also easy to maintain.
You are very efficient,
and a strategic thinker.
The perfect combination for a clutter wizard.
Knowing that the many hidden disorganized places throughout my house
are now gone gives
me a great deal of satisfaction and peace of mind. Thanks also for
your communication style to my moods
and working at my pace and comfort level.
"Bob, thanks for helping me
positive about my home again! Working with you, my children and I
have learned that organizing and keeping things straight can
actually be fun and rewarding. I used to think I needed extra room
just to store my stuff, but now I can't believe how much room I have,
and how easy it is to find everything when we need it.
We really benefited from working with you.
The help you gave us was invaluable.
Thank you again."
"Bob, your help has
in getting me started toward
eventual organization that I can live with. Thank you so much for your
"Bob, you've created a monster!
Our last organizing session was exhausting but invigorating at
the same time. I was up until 1:30am and while I couldn't sleep I went
through more stuff and pitched another garbage bag full of things.
Then I neatly organized my internship logs and letters of recommendation
from medical school. They are now safely stored in my medical office,
on the shelf, labeled on the spine so I can find them when I need them.
are a great motivator.
Thank you for giving me hope of a future free of clutter."
"Bob actually make organizing
You helped me organize my home office in a manner that really works
for me. You know
exactly what questions to ask
so that I can be organized in a way that is natural
for me. Thanks Bob.You are truly a Clutter Wizard!"
"The massive towers of paper
had accumulated in my work space were very intimidating: As soon as
I organized one pile, two more would replace it.
A man of
Bob helped me to design a place for everything and to toss what
should have been tossed long ago. With him at my side (literally), I
was able to do in hours what I hadn't been able to do for years --
control over the chaos.
No task was too small, no mess too challenging.
Many people resist the idea of hiring someone, saying, "I
SHOULD be able to get organized by myself." But they don't,
if only because there's no one holding them accountable. Bob is
of the good ideas
(hardly any of which cost money) that only experience can bring, and
he eggs you on to make sure the job gets done."
