Barbara Reich

Nationally Recognized Professional Organizer

Organizing guru and author of the book, Secrets of an Organized Mom, Barbara Reich offers a life-changing program for your life and home. Mothers can feel like life is running on a never-ending loop. Just when one problem or responsibility is overcome, another trips us up. But help is on the way: Reich has all the strategies for staying ahead of the curve—and she’s wrapped them up into four easy steps that can be applied to any organizing project: 1. purge, 2. design, 3. organize, and 4. maintain.

Known for creating solutions that are as aesthetically appealing as they are practical, Reich transforms each space from the inside out. From powerful executives to busy mothers, clients appreciate Reich’s unwavering confidentiality and eye for design. She has appeared on the Today Show, Inside Edition, Fox News, and New York 1 and has been featured in the New York Times, New York Post, Real Simple, InStyle, People StyleWatch, Family Circle, Better Homes and Gardens, and O Magazine among other publications.

The keys to Reich’s success are simplicity and consistency. Room by room, she takes readers through the most problematic areas in the home— from the tornado-struck play area to the packed basement or storage unit. Barbara shows readers how to approach organizing in manageable bites— many of which can be dealt with in two hours or less. As the mother of thirteen-year-old twins, Reich offers insight into the lives of crazed moms as only a mother could with tips like these: When it comes time to clean out the toy bin, keep only what your child plays with— educational toys “exist to make you feel guilty.” Throw away those kitchen gadgets you never use. A streamlined kitchen can mean the difference between another night of take-out and a healthy family meal. Your child doesn’t need to attend six birthday parties in one weekend. To avoid social overload, Barbara preaches the power of “No”—and there’s no need to follow it up with a why. Having trouble parting with your child’s artwork from three years ago? Scan or digitally photograph everything and create a gallery on your computer. Combining the humor of a sympathetic friend and the no-nonsense advice of a true type-A personality, Reich offers clever, appealing solutions that are genuinely achievable for everyone. She currently resides in New York.
