Mt. Laurel native Becca Meyers discovered her passion for organizing living spaces while cooped up inside her one-bedroom apartment in San Diego at the height of the pandemic.

“My space was not a South Jersey-sized one-bedroom apartment, it was San Diego-sized, so tiny,” says Meyers, the founder of Unclutter’d. “I was living alone, and I needed to make my space more functional. I loved how it turned out and started organizing my friends’ closets, garages and whole apartments.” Meyers, who was working as a nanny at that time, realized she had just discovered her calling. Before-and-after photos of the living spaces she had transformed were impressive enough to get her a job at a San Diego-based professional organization company where she learned on the job. But when she was ready to branch out on her own, Meyers knew she wanted to return home to start her business in South Jersey.

Unclutter’d offers a range of services from a one-time organization session to package deals for organizing multiple spaces. Clients are not required to purchase storage bins or other organizational supplies and all services come with custom labels. Moreover, Meyers gives lessons to clients on how to keep their spaces maintained, but she also recognizes that spaces are organic and they may need a “refresh” to keep up with changes. She will come out for free to reassess the space and schedule a refresh session.

No pressure consultations are always free, she says, noting that there is no such thing as a typical client.

“Unclutter’d is for anyone who wants to reclaim their space to bring more peace into their everyday schedules,” she says. “It’s very individualized. Some clients don’t want to be involved at all – they just want the job done. Others want to be involved every step of the way. We take the time to figure out their needs and make sure we design a system that works for them and their family.”

The work sometimes can bring up dust, along with some heavy emotions, depending on the situation.“I like to work with a client’s timeline,” Meyers says. “I may schedule a few sessions a month and work with them for 2 to 3 hours at a time. I’ve noticed that is the sweet spot to prevent some people from getting too overwhelmed.”

“One thing I never do is question if they say they’re not ready to let go of something,” she adds. “Who am I to say ‘get rid of that?’ I make sure they feel safe because letting go can be a very hard process.”

For some, it’s not emotional attachment but sheer frustration that brings them to Unclutter’d. That’s often the case with young families. And that’s where her teaching degrees and prior work with kids are assets.

“As a nanny, I was constantly organizing everything from the kids’ playroom to their extracurricular schedules,” she says. “It’s extremely helpful to have this skill set when organizing because it is crucial to arrange a space so that the youngest family members can reach their favorite toys and be a part of the cleanup process.”

Truly, Meyers never knows what the situation will be until she walks through the door of her latest job. “It’s so important that we take the time to know our clients,” she adds. “We want to make sure they feel heard and their space really works for them.”
