Andreea Pfeifer is a rare and talented individual. She is a smart, feisty, motivated, trustworthy professional. I never ceased to be surprised by what she was able to accomplish, and by her multiple talents, experiences and knowledge. Andreea was a whirlwind of productivity, innovation and focus. Not only that, she was a joy to be around... Somehow she took the chaos, whipped it into order, and brought her vivacity and wonderful humor to the job.

I hired Andreea Pfeifer of Girl Friday to organize my clothing. This included all closets and dressers. She did an absolutely fabulous and spectacular job. She organized everything, including all lingerie, by color and hue. She folded and hung very piece in a professional, space saving, manner. My shoes were all boxed individually with a picture of the shoes on the front of the box for ease of use. My closets looked and still look like a picture out of Architectural Digest. The price was very reasonable. I would recommend Girlfriday to anyone who needs reorganizing, hands down !!!

Professional Organizing Tips

Clothespin as Hanger
Use clips to prevent silky, sleeveless shirts and dresses from slipping off the hanger and crumbling onto the floor.

Dryer Sheet as Shoe Freshener
Roll up one sheet per slipper, sneaker, or loafer, insert, and forget about stinky shoes. Bonus uses: Toss them in hampers, on closet shelves, or in diaper bags.

Rubber Bands as Strap Securers
Keep your camisoles and sundresses from slipping off their hangers by wrapping a rubber band around each end of a hanger.

Shower Curtain Hooks as Handbag Storage
Place hooks on a closet bar and hang purse handles from them to keep your carry-alls at eye level. Say goodbye to a mess of accessories on your closet floor.

Shower Curtain Rings as Scarf Storage
Sort and hang scarves by threading them through rings hung on a closet rod.

Soda Bottle as Boot Supporter
Insert an empty one-liter plastic bottle into a tall boot to keep it from sagging, creasing, or toppling over. Bonus: Upright boots create space on your closet floor.

Tea Bag as Drawer Sachet
Subtly scent a drawer by placing a mint, vanilla, or lavender tea bag in a drawer of delicates.

Vinegar as Sweater Fluffer
Fluff up wool sweaters by adding a few capfuls of vinegar to the rinse cycle.

Before & After Photos

Andreea came to the townhouse (for free) to assess the situation. She was very sympathetic to and understanding of our situation. She gave us a reasonable quote and planned for two days of packing and two days of unpacking/organizing. We asked Andreea to do the best she could to make our new house a functional home without any guidance. In other words, unpack us in logical way so that we can shower with soap, make coffee, change diapers, etc. Andreea and her teammate did that and more! They were kind, timely, and self-sufficient. They also completed both the packing and unpacking in less time than planned which was a nice surprise. Once we get settled in, I intend to hire Andreea for some additional organizing services. I’m a big fan of girlFriday now! Description of work: My family and I just moved into a new home. My husband and I both work and we have a 4 year old so our time is limited and precious. Also, I'm 9 months pregnant and can't do much physically. We decided to look for some help packing up our townhouse and unpacking at our new home. We needed someone who could provide this service without much guidance as we didn't know if the baby would be here yet! It's also important to note that we are downsizing and have a ton of extra stuff that doesn't belong anywhere. We are pretty overwhelmed and disorganized!
