Swedish Death Cleaning & Hygge Living

The two philosophies I try to incorporate into every home are based on the books The Gentle Art of Swedish Death Cleaning and The Little Book of Hygge, both of which help guide you to living a more meaningful life.

The Swedish way of simplifying life is by decluttering and assigning future homes for your things before you die. I want to help you:

  • enjoy your home in the present

  • let your family and friends request special items of yours that have meaning to them and reminds them of you

  • allow your loved ones to grieve your death without having to also manage your things

  • peace of mind that your things will continue to be taken care of and loved as you have done with them

The Little Book of Hygge (Hoo-ga) is the Danish way of finding, creating and enjoying comfort in your home and life. The idea I want to help you implement is when you walk into any room of your home, you should feel peaceful and cozy. I want to help you find the balance between having things and things having you; do you control your home or does your home control you? Hygge is the happiness and joy that comes from knowing that your life and your things have purpose.​

About Me

Organizing is one of my greatest natural strengths. I grew up helping my parents with their businesses, took on leadership roles in school, and was a working mom while attending college. The need to have an organized home, while having a busy life, was integral to me being able to fulfill all the things needing to be done. Lucky for me, organizing brings me joy! 

I thrive on creating order out of chaos and of seeing people find comfort and appreciation for their home. I do that by establishing functional, maintainable organizing systems based on realistic, individual needs. Every home and space functions in unique ways, there is no cookie cutter answer. I will help make your home work and feel your way.

I began organizing professionally in 2016 and joined the Utah Professional Organizers. I was a member of the board for 2 years and attended monthly training meetings. In 2018 I joined an organizing company and through hands-on experience I became their top lead organizer for team and individual projects.

When I'm not organizing, I enjoy hiking, camping, mysteries, embroidery, and movies. My most favorite thing to do in life is travel. I have been married 20 years and have 2 teenage sons.

Choose an area. Pull everything out and sort by category. Keep, toss, donate. Find a home for what's staying, contain

& label.

Organize first then pack each room with labels. Create systems while unpacking making sure it makes sense & will function.

It can be hard to let go! Find a donation center that specializes in your item(s) so they will be used & loved the way you would want them to be.

Box up & label any excess, keep out only the essentials. Clear the counters, thin out closets & tidy all areas of your home.

Furniture & decor placement set the tone for how a room feels. Experiment with rearranging to give the

room new energy.

Functional systems don't mean they will last forever, life situations change. Reassessing trouble areas & scheduling consistent touch-ups will help.



"Jessica has helped me with home organization as well as project based personal assistant type work. I typically have systems in mind I want to implement and Jessica happily accepts my input and often enhances the work with her own skills, creativity and insight. Jessica is trustworthy. I have found she can work alongside me or on her own with minimal guidance. I trust her in my home, with my children and pets and even with my private information. Jessica is reliable and good-natured. I look forward to continuing to work with her in the future."
