Join US


We’re looking for a high energy, fun New Yorker to join our team as an Organizing Consultant. It goes without saying that a love of organization is required.

Other musts:
  • A positive, confident, easygoing, and detail-oriented nature. Being Type A is a plus!
  • Desire to work with people, rather than at a desk all day.
  • Experience in project management, event planning, or related organizing work.
  • A professional background and poise to interact with high-profile clientele.
  • An ability to handle the active and physical part of organizing work.
  • A proximity and desire to work in the New York metropolitan area, with the majority of work in Manhattan and Brooklyn.

This is part-time work with a flexible schedule that’s meant to fit your lifestyle and priorities. The schedule is driven by client needs so work varies week to week.

Sound amazing?! Please send your resume and a little about yourself to Korinne at kkb@UrbanSimplicityNYC.com

And, blog followers, please feel free to share with anyone you know who just might be a perfect fit.

By the way, you might have noticed that I've taken a bit of a break from blogging over the past several months, but we're still here and business is booming. You can still find us active every week on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest. Thanks for following along. I promise, I'll get back to blogging in the near future.

Daily Candy Names US Among NYC’s Best At-Home Services


I'm honored, albeit a bit sad at the same time. 

Just days after Daily Candy named US among New York City's best at-home services, they announced they were closing their doors after 14 years. 

I'm thrilled for one last bit of Daily Candy love before they shut down. You can check out the full profile here.

Our initial feature in Daily Candy back in 2011, just after launching the company, was a major bump for business and resulted and some of our best clients over the years. I'd be remiss if I didn't mention how much it helped US grow. 

I'm so very sad that Daily Candy is shutting down this week. I remember subscribing to the newsletter in my early 20s when I first moved to New York City in hopes of finding a sample sale that I could actually afford. That was a long time ago, and it's been amazing to see the site grow over the years. Then to be featured, well, that was the best.

MakeSpace Features Urban Simplicity

Life happens. We move. We marry. We make babies. And as I so often say, during life's big changes, our organizational systems break down.

I'm thrilled to be sharing my insight on organizing after a big life event over at MakeSpace's blog

MakeSpace is a company based in New York City that takes a unique approach to storage. They drop off the storage bins for you, and pick them up once they're packed. When you want something back, they deliver. Talk about simplicity!

Happy New Year + Big News


When I launched this company three years ago, I had no idea what to expect. I was walking away from a steady income and a career in politics that I never expected to leave. 

Thanks to the support of my husband, friends, family, and the coolest, most amazing clients a girl could hope for, I've built Urban Simplicity into the thriving and growing business it is today. I am so grateful to all of you. 

As 2013 ends, I'm so excited to tell you all that Urban Simplicity is expanding in 2014 to Cincinnati, Ohio. It's definitely a dream realized to expand our reach to another location. First, New York. Next, Cincinnati. Then, the world! :)

But never fear New Yorkers, we'll still maintain and grow our business in the City. With a team of organizers in the City every day, we'll continue to conquer New York City clutter. Personally, I will be in the City on a regular basis working with clients, taking new consultations, and growing the brand.  

So here's wishing you a happy, healthy, and ORGANIZED 2014. 

All the best,

Korinne

Give the Gift of Organization

The clock is ticking with only two weekends left before Christmas. I say, forget the stores. If you’re struggling to find the perfect holiday gift for someone on your list, then look no further.

Give the gift of peace of mind with an Urban Simplicity gift certificate.

A gift certificate is the perfect option for the loved one in your life. Think of a session with a professional organizer as a spa day in your own home. Clients finish the session feeling lighter, more centered, and most of all relaxed and in control of their life.

Gift certificates are available in any amount, but consider a four-hour organizing session as a good starting place.

Mention this blog post and receive 20 percent off a gift certificate for a four-hour organizing session.
