Hello, I'm Melinda Anderson. Welcome to our home online!

My philosophy is simple — to make each home visually pleasing as well as functional. Home is an important aspect of our health and wellbeing and is our haven from the outside world. What we see on a daily basis and what surrounds us at home affects our attitude, our mood, and our quality of life.

As a former hands-on professional organizer and home stager who personally moved 7 times in the first 11 years of marriage, I can show you how to successfully execute a residential move, from moving van to relaxed and resettled in no time.

After moving, unpacking, sorting and resettling my family during a series of corporate transfers, I developed a system to unpack and organize everything my family owned and get it put away so we could all start to adjust to our new life in a new city where we knew very few people and finding the best grocery stores in town is always a high priority on our list.

Essentially, life stood still until we put everything away with some logical semblance of order. The process for getting unpacked and settled-in quickly allowed us to “stop the horror show” and be able to focus on new job responsibilities and get back to the normal daily routines of cooking meals, doing laundry, going to work, exercising + a hundred other little things.

If you’re ready to eliminate unnecessary steps in your daily routine so you can save time and focus your energies and free time on living a full life, let’s get started by downloading the Southern Home Organizers Starter Guide and Bonus: Tools of the Trade checklist.

This will give you a head’s up, and it’s free.

Think of it as a welcome gift from me to you for stopping by.

Happy organizing,


Around here, however, we don’t look backwards for very long. We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things, because we’re curious … and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.
