“Anne Blumer’s presentation on organizing kitchen and pantry at our store in The Pearl was our best attended workshop for all of our locations. Anne did a terrific job combining information about her organizing process with practical suggestions for product. I think many people left with a clear sense of how to start and others were eager to jump in to locate appropriate solutions. I saw several full carts that were inspired by her suggestions. You addressed the audience questions with ease, including those questions off topic such as paper storage. We sold out of the home filing kit after your glowing recommendation.” “Thank you Anne for giving our customers a clear organizing process and experienced information about our products!” Leslie Sampson, Vice President, Storables

“Anne, thank you so much for the beautiful job you did at the workshop last Saturday. You clearly connect with each group you speak to on a level that is clear and easy to understand.” Gina Story, Washington Green Store Manager, Storables

"This was a wonderful opportunity for our customers to learn from an expert how to get rid of their clutter and bring organization to their lives. Anne’s teaching was clear and engaging and very organized! She shared many great tips on how to tackle big projects and explained what you need to do to maintain your new systems. People loved it and we had great turnouts. We’ve had many requests to bring Anne back and look forward to have her teach at our stores again." Amanda Nelson, New Seasons Market Wellness Coordinato
