About Amanda

Meet Amanda Gillies, owner of Proper Place Organizing

Dear Friend,

I’m Amanda and the owner of Proper Place Organizing. My background has been in Office Management, Accounting/Bookkeeping, Marketing,  Hospitality, and Technical Theater. Think how many moving parts are involved in organizing an office or a show!  

I understand the feeling of being overwhelmed – sometimes even I just want to sweep everything out the door, or close my eyes as I stumble around. Can you relate?  I want to be doing things, not chores. I want to get things done quickly, not spend hours looking for what I need.  Truly having less has made this easier. And having a proper place for everything has made all the difference. 

Getting to know you and using my experience to curate the right solutions to meet your goals is why I do what I do. My commitment to efficiency in organization has led me to want to share the freedom I feel.

I’m about making attractive yet usable, livable, happy places.

For me it’s not about matching tea cups. It’s about friends, family and memories.   But being my mother and grandmother’s daughter I have to have the matching tea cups too. 

I look forward to working with you!

Amanda Gillies
