Get to Know
The Organized House

Based in Portland, Oregon, The Organized House is all about organizing for the life you actually live. Got a playroom that looks like a toy bomb exploded? A closet you can’t walk into anymore? A kitchen that’s more chaos than culinary? Or maybe a garage that’s seen better days? Whatever the mess, we’ve got your back. We’re here to help you take back your space and make your home feel like a place you love and enjoy.

Hey there! I'm Michelle Urban. I'm a mom on a mission, an author who adores narrating stories through organized spaces, and the proud founder of The Organized House. You could say I have an uncanny knack for turning cluttered spaces into places of peace and beauty. Helping families get their homes back from the jaws of chaos isn't just my job; it's what gets me up in the morning (that and the promise of coffee).

My adventure through organizing has caught the eye of the media a time or two, but at heart, I'm all about keeping it real and relatable. I'm soaking up the dream life in Lake Oswego, Oregon, alongside my handsome hubby, our two lively kids, and an ever-growing collection of unread books that whisper my name.

I absolutely love sharing my discoveries, hoping to light up your day with a sprinkle of joy or a dash of inspiration. And believe me when I say a hearty cup of coffee, binge-worthy Netflix docuseries, and basking in a bit of sunshine can miraculously uplift the spirits. So, why not stick around and share in this adventure with me? Let's make every space a happy place, one cluttered corner at a time.
