Are you ready to make a positive change in your life? To let go of clutter and increase your productivity? You’ve come to the right place! I’m Carolyn and I founded Simply Organized Life™ in 2005 with the mission of helping busy moms let go of clutter and be more productive. It’s all about finding more time and space for the things that really matter in life. You too can find peace of mind in our hectic world. You deserve a Simply Organized Life™.Come on in, make yourself at home! Let’s start your Organizing Journey™!


In 2005, Carolyn Anderson-Fermann founded Simply Organized Life™ with the mission of helping busy families let go of clutter to find more time and space for the things that really matter in life.


When I left the corporate world for Simply Organized Life™ I wanted to help women find the peace of mind that comes from being organized in an increasingly hectic world. I believe that I can help you find the Simply Organized Life™ that you deserve.

In today’s fast-paced world it is easy to become overwhelmed by the vast amount of “stuff” in our lives, both the physical “stuff” and the “stuff” that takes up the limited time that we all have.

By teaching you my secrets to better manage time and space, I can help you overcome feelings of being overwhelmed at work and at home. Your life can be simpler and more organized.


Carolyn was quoted in The Detroit News!

“I loved the workshop on household paper management. I would go to that again.”

Laurie Beuhler, Ann Arbor, Michigan

“Carolyn is clearly an organizer who practices what she preaches, because she couldn’t possibly be so effective and timely if she weren’t extremely organized herself.”

Brian Urbancic, Ann Arbor, Michigan

“We are both greatly in debt to you for all of your counseling and assistance. Truly, you are a Godsend!”

Cathy and Bob Sigler, Saline, Michigan

“Carolyn is professional, personable, supportive and gives lots of practical suggestions.”

“Your session was really helpful! Since taking the class, I’ve already begun to ‘behave’ differently.”

LeeAnn, Ann Arbor, Michigan

“Carolyn will change your life for the positive. I went to hear a talk presented by Carolyn at the Hamburg Library. She is the ‘real deal’. She is an expert at what she does. If you want a less cluttered life physically, mentally and spiritually, Carolyn can help you facilitate this life for you. She is a wonderful person who only wants the best for people who have suffered the pain of clutter.”

Jackie, Seminar Attendee, Pinckney, Michigan

“I don’t think it (my home) would have sold without the home staging advice you gave me, because the mirror-image house next door was also for sale. We had to compete for the same buyer and my staging was better.”

S. Aitken, Ann Arbor, Michigan

“I’m absolutely delighted with the changes you proposed to the homeowner. I will definitely use your services in the future.”
