Who we are at Less Mess
LessMess is a Professional Organising business specialising in office and family management.
My name is Susanne and I created LessMess offering de-cluttering, organising and education service in 2006.
I was born in Germany, have an Engineering degree in Interior Architecture and am an award winning gardener that likes weeding and pruning.
For the last 20 years, I have been living in Sydney’s inner west, where fitting into a small house is a financial necessity – sharing the house with my husband, three (male) teenagers, three chooks, a (female) cat, lots of friends and (overseas) visitors.
In June 2017, I spoke at the world’s largest conference on happiness and wellbeing sharing my ideas about a simpler live to an audience of 1500.
In September I am invited to share my ideas about how to engage an audience and encourage them to make real changes to their life and thus to the world around them at the 33rd NSW Environmental Education conference.
I am a founding member of The Institute of Professional Organisers (IOPO) everyone in our team follows their Code of Conduct.
Confidentiality is key
Celebrating 10 years in business
“10 Years ago, on the 10th of August 2006, I worked with my very first client. A couple of weeks earlier I had joined my Industry Association (AAPO), brainstormed a business name and had my first version of this website go live. All in between caring for my kids, two in primary school one just started daycare.
Time flays, the oldest one will do his HSC this year and all are now in High School.
I have worked with over 450 individual clients and families, turned a part time business into a full time one and now have a team of Organising Assistants that can help out if a job requires.
I have been featured in the media, radio and on TV as an expert commentator.
3 years ago, I started running public workshops and can add over 2500 participants to that list.”

Organising is a skill everyone can learn.
