My Accountability Partner
"Working with Marni is like having an accountability partner and she does a lot of the physical work. She supported my decisions on what to take or leave, and packed out everything that needed to go. She is especially adept at placing items in their best future home, whether through consignment, direct sale, donation, hazardous waste drop off, or…gasp, trash. It is an investment in your sanity and working with Marni is money very well spent!"
Marni Saves the Move
I hired Marni Saves The Day to help me pack up a large 5-bedroom home in Seattle after which I moved out of state. I had been working on packing on my own, off and on, for approximately six months. I was at the point where I knew I needed a professional organizer.
Marni's business name couldn't be more accurate. She literally saved the day for me as I was exhausted and becoming overwhelmed with the work I had to do.
After contacting Marni she replied immediately. We discussed over the phone what needed to be done. We had three and a half appointments where she came to help. She was totally prepared with gear to help with packing. She was very punctual and communicated with me consistently.
Two things stand out to me the most: 1) Without instruction Marni would survey a room visually and went to work! She knew and could see what needed to be done before I did. And 2) Things I did not want to move across the country she found charities and organizations and other means to recycle and repurpose items I no longer needed. This service was great as I didn't want to have everything I didn't want hauled off to a landfill. She helped me lessen my carbon footprint and made others happy by giving them things I no longer wanted.
I could not recommend Marni more highly. Marni Saves The Day helped me deal with a difficult situation and made my moving experience go smoothly and with as little hassle as possible.
Marni was absolutely instrumental in making our off-beat, outdoor, weekend-long , community-powered potluck wedding happen. Despite a short timeline and tight budget, Marni was a fountain of ideas, resources, energy and enthusiasm.
She sat down with us to make lists of tasks, prioritized and delegated them. Per her suggestion, we created a large calender with tasks marked to be completed by day.
When our energy faltered, she was there to keep us focused. She kept in touch and kept us on track using phone calls, in-person meetings, texts and e-mails. Her experience with working and volunteering at festivals, art shows and Burning Man was extremely valuable, as she had a deep understanding of the logistical planning and labor that was necessary to make a major event like this happen.
The day before the event arrived, Marni was there with us; laboring to set up tents, tables and decorations, creating a working outdoor kitchen, offering assistance and advice, and directing people. She stayed calm, energetic and friendly in the face of exhaustion and stress. The result, the following day, was the most beautiful day of our lives. She acted as the event coordinator, and directed the throng of people with grace and enthusiasm. We did not have to worry about anything except marrying each other and having a great time. The following day, she assisted with pack-up and organization. Marni saved our day, and her expertise was worth every penny, and far beyond. Thank you!

Marni came over with all of the boxes, wrapping papers, tapes and tools needed to effectively pack up my kitchen to prepare for the remodel. She moved furniture, helped me organize where the boxes would go in my house during the project, made sure everything was labeled correctly (and on all sides of the boxes) and did it while keeping me focused and laughing the whole time. She worked with me to make sure when I needed to unpack the boxes that things would go smoothly – and they did. She even made sure the boxes weren’t too heavy. She was efficient, friendly, organized and on-task. It was a pain in the neck task and she made it fun and easy.

Such a great help
"I worked with Marni in prepping my last two homes for sale. She has strong knowledge and skills, is deeply honest and very hardworking, very kind and a joy to work with! She worked with me side-by-side, room by room, closet by cabinet, purging the house before I put it on market. This is physically and emotionally draining work – and it gets tedious. It’s easy to throw in the towel before we get far!"
Marni Saves the Year
"Marni has been invaluable to us for the last year and a half. She came to us and just stepped in and started working with us without question! She can do anything and she does it quickly and efficiently. We are amazed at what she can accomplish, she is extremely easy to work with! I wish that she could work for us all the time!"
Marni Saves the Details
"Whenever I am really in need and wracking my brain about who I can turn to…I remember that Marni can help or knows somebody that can take care of my needs! From planning to organizing to just a helping hand…she really does “save the day!”"
