“Denise – thank you so much for your time, patience and help! You helped me to get organized and STAY organized!”
“As a busy business owner myself, I have struggled with overwhelm and anxiety over all the administrative chores that take me away from doing my actual work. With just a few simple suggestions Denise was able to help me see through the clutter and focus on getting things done and off my shoulders! Denise is also an amazing Image Consultant, helping people dress for success as well as helping people dress for their body type are her true gifts and passion! She is fun and easy going and a joy to work with!!”
“You do a lot more than home organization. I really appreciate how you helped me organize my computer files and my office so that now when I work I don’t have to spend time looking for files, correspondence, forms or reference material. And, you were very quick and efficient. Thanks so much for your help.”
“Denise came into my office and got right to work after our initial consult. I can say that she saw beyond the mess and easily created a pleasant and organized work space for me. She has saved me time and energy and lets face it…that will save me dollars.
Recommend her to lots of patients.”
What Other People Say About Image Consulting
“Denise came to my house yesterday. I wasn’t sure what to expect. I was hoping that she would be able to put the clothes I already have together in new ways. Not only was she able to do this, but she did this beyond my expectations. She picked up on my personal style, and in three hours she put several outfits together using my own wardrobe. I loved everything and it was like getting a whole new wardrobe.
She took pictures of the outfits and me in the outfits so that I can remember what goes together. Wow! It was wonderful. Denise is a professional and worth every penny! Thanks again Denise.”
“Thank you for the wonderful gift of your time and advice! I was very at ease and comfortable with you. You were sincerely honest and helpful. Your advice and insight about me, my body shape, and what would look best on me is priceless! Your knowledge of fashion and your professionalism allowed me to be almost as confident as you! I found the whole experience to be fun and I look forward to taking your fashion advice with me when I go shopping!”
“I asked Denise to help me fine tune my wardrobe as I had lost some weight and become frustrated with how many of the items in my closet were no longer coordinating, nor appropriate for my new professional endeavors. We decided to do a makeover using both newly purchased items and clothes from my closet. After talking about my goals and interests with great care, we went shopping together. With her quick grasp of my needs, she picked out a wonderful group of coordinating outfits, a suit, skirts, sweaters, knit tops, and a dress. To boot, these items were reasonably priced and in my budget! I have gotten many complements about my new clothes and when I wear them I feel that these items truly flatter my figure! To cap off this experience she and I held a makeover party, during which I showed off my lovely new wardrobe and she gave my guests helpful tips on how to dress with style–and with an eye on the budget! Denise is truly a gem, and I highly recommend her services for anyone who is wondering how to work with their wardrobe and tune up their style!”
“I love working with Denise! She recently gave an amazing presentation to the Heels & Vino Club which was fun, interactive and full of surprises. It was great how Denise managed the room while focusing to make sure every woman in the room felt comfortable regardless of body shape and size. I would recommend Denise’s events and look forward to working side by side in the future.
Thanks Denise for holding such a warm space for my ladies!”
“I had the opportunity to go shopping with Denise and it was a fun and eye-opening experience. I spend the majority of my time in uniform or workout clothes and rarely venture beyond jeans, t-shirts, or the occasional cute dress, mostly because I don’t know where to begin choosing clothes. Since I’m transitioning out of the military, this was a wonderful chance to explore more professional and stylish options that work for my body type and style. She definitely had me try on clothes that I never would have taken off the rack, and in many cases I was pleasantly surprised! Denise was also very conscious of working with my comfort level and not trying to push me to buy clothes that would be impractical or that I couldn’t see myself wearing. Best of all, I learned a lot about what to look for (and avoid) so I feel better prepared to shop on my own.”
“Denise, thank you so much!!!! As you know the thought of shopping and trying to figure out what clothing goes with what puts me into an almost immediate anxiety attack.
I had a wonderful time shopping with you. I didn’t think shopping could be so much fun (and at the same time educational) and gentle. I love everything we chose for me. And the photos are very helpful.”
What Others are Saying about Space and Decluttering
“Hi Denise, Just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed yesterday and to update you on the positive affect you have had on my family.
My husband, turned his desk as per your suggestion. So now he looks at the ocean rather than the messy closet. He says he is having some trouble adjusting but he’ll give it a few days ha ha, I bet he never moves it back. He even has on his To Do list to sort through his box of wires in the closet.
Our discard pile was looked at by all and aside from one wooden box it all went to Community Resource Center this AM. I was blown away that my husband was willing to part with the stuff as he just loves to save.
My son moved his desk upstairs and put it in the cubby and is working on “organizing” we may need to add him to our To Do list for our next session. But it is a major improvement as now he has all his work stuff in his little office and bedroom stuff in the bedroom.
I know this is totally going to help with his concentration and thus he is going to love the affect. Do you know of any place that sells cubbies that you can hang on the walls. Shelves are just going to be a mess for him. I was thinking of what Pottery Barn Kids sells for their storage units but we need to put the unit on the wall as there is no floor space. In fact most of the desks that Containers and Things sold were to big for that wall. He actually has the desk under the window as he wanted that view, but we still have the wall.
Thanks so much!!”
“My husband Richard and I are delighted with our experience with Denise Levine who made our living in a town home in San Diego a much nicer experience. Richard and I have been spending the last three winters at my mother’s town home in San Diego trying to escape the dryness and altitude of our Colorado home. Every year we’d return with more “stuff” and finally our bedroom and space became a nightmare with clothes, shoes, computers, files, art supplies, books, pet stuff, etc.
We hired Denise to help us but I must admit I was a bit uncomfortable/embarrassed when she arrived. She quickly put me to ease and when we got down to business it turned out to be rather fun. I was amazed at all of the ingenious ideas she had to make our space livable. I can’t bend over or kneel and was told (nicely) to sit by and direct her and she would do all the work. Sounds good to me! We made three piles, one for garbage, one to donate and one to keep and find a logical place for.
Richard learned how to deal with his paper piles more effectively and no longer wastes time looking for things. Denise made it seem so simple we felt a little silly but we were so overwhelmed we didn’t know where to start. It went so much faster than I imagined it would. When we finished with our “stuff” Denise also helped me set up a bill payment system for my computer which was really frustrating for me but she had the patience of a saint. I am so grateful for our experience with Denise and enthusiastically recommend her services to you.”

“I recommend Outside In Organizer to anyone seeking to make their business or personal lives simpler. On moving my office to Del Mar, I hired Denise Levine to assist me with organizing my new space and setting up business processes to maintain that organization. As you might expect, Denise’s approach to organization is… er… systematic… and… organized. She put in place organization processes to deal with potential clutter as well as business processes to make non-billable time more efficient.”
“I’ve been working with Denise on a regular basis, working to reclaim spaces in my house that became “catch-all” storage areas over the years. I’m pleased with the results as well as the process itself. Denise is everything you would hope for in an organizer: professional, caring, respectful, practical, nonjudgmental, discreet, and of course, organized.”
“Denise has been a huge help in getting my new home organized. Moving is so overwhelming, it’s been great to have someone to help me get organized. I’ve worked with her a couple of times, and I plan to have her back!”
“Loved working with Denise. In one hour, I had four bags ready for consignment and two for dry cleaning. Her professionalism, organizing expertise, and high energy was a great catalyst to clear up some clutter, set organizing goals, etc. I would recommend her without reservation to anyone who wants to organize their home or business.”
“Denise from Outside In Organizer worked with me in a series of sessions to get my clothes closets and home better organized in preparation for a series of visitors I was expecting. She color coordinated the organization of my clothes, convinced me to donate some clothing I didn’t wear, plus worked on clearing space in my garage.
Denise was very good about not being judgmental about all the clutter I had, which helped calm my nervousness in bringing someone into my house to help.
Along the way Denise would ask for feedback on whether or not I was comfortable with the process, and she was open to the suggestions I made. Each session she made sure we wrapped the work up in time to clear the area we had worked in.
I would definitely recommend Denise to anyone looking to clear clutter from their life, and be better organized.”
“Have you ever tried to fit cooked pasta back into the box? That is how I felt when my husband and I sold our large family home and downsized into our empty-nester beach house. There were days that I would rather pour hot molten lava over my body than unpack, but Denise would come and make unpacking and organizing actually enjoyable. Denise’s spirit, energy, and skills are worth every dime!”
“After considering hiring an organizer for several years I took the plunge and signed up with Denise Levine for a 3-month package to de-clutter my office and home. Although the price seemed steep at the time I am very pleased that I made the commitment. For me, I know that if I hired Denise by the hour I would procrastinate and likely not follow-through, but by making a financial commitment for a limited period of time I also made a personal commitment to finally moving ahead with the organizing I know needed to be done. I am very pleased with the outcome and also the process. Denise has a great sense of humor, is respectful of her client’s pace, is easy to work with and she kept me on schedule. During the process of working together I also learned a lot of great tips that now help me continue to de-clutter and stay organized. If, like me, you have been wanting to get organized and know you need the help of a professional organizer, don’t hesitate. Call Denise now! I know you will be pleased–and relieved–that you made the decision to move forward with your life.”
“After a major hospitalization and a sudden death in the family, the boxes I had piled in the garage after I moved were just too emotionally overwhelming to tackle. Eighteen months later, I was made aware that it was long past time to unpack! I went on Yelp and, based on Denise’s glowing reviews here, I made the call. What really sold me is that she is a retired teacher. Teachers *must* be highly organized in order to get through the day, so I knew I was in good hands. Denise came by for an initial consultation and a walk-through. Since I signed up on the spot, I got a hefty discount! Within a few days, she was back at my house, and we went to work. This was a major undertaking. Over the course of three months, with help from her assistants (women she is mentoring in the organizing business), we not only purged and organized the garage, but also transformed one of my spare bedrooms into a cute walk in closet/craft room. Denise also helped me to develop a system for dealing with daily mail, something I also find to be overwhelming.
I highly recommend Outside In Organizer to anyone who may be hesitating in calling an organizer, thinking it will be traumatic or shameful.Throughout the process, Denise was caringly professional. When I needed to vent or talk myself through getting rid of something, she listened as a friend would, and then we would continue getting the job done. She is the embodiment of organization, yet is compassionate and encouraging. I always felt satisfyingly exhausted, elated, and proud of myself after an organizing session with Denise. That is how it should be.”
“I worked with Outside in Organizer on two different occasions. I was so pleased with the results on both appointments. Having 3 small kids close in age has made my time to clean up very challenging. My closets, laundry room and playroom have all suffered due to the stuff we have accumulated. On both occasions we tackled closets.
Denise was very professional, caring, understanding and efficient. What I loved most about her was that she was not judgmental, and was very respectful of all the “things” that I wanted to keep. She was able to find a better place for organizing those items that meant a lot for me to keep. She didn’t make me feel like I had to throw away everything or anything, instead, she had great ideas on how to make my closets more efficient to keep those items.
After those appointments, Denise has inspired me to continue my organizing efforts throughout my home. But make no mistake, it is a challenge for me. Working with Denise made the process much easier and more efficient because we were able to tackle on a certain area together, she had a lot of great ideas, and it also forced me to do it (I couldn’t procrastinate).
I highly recommend Outside in Organizer to anyone wanting to have an organized home, or even just to get started. Once you start, you will be inspired to continue. I just wish I had the means to continue to use Denise on a regular basis. But for now, I am happy that she was able to help me out the times that she did. Denise is the only one I would call for my organizing needs. Feel confident that this lady will treat you and your things respectfully and professionally. Thanks Denise for all your hard work!”
