Meet Deb Farnell
Deb is a St. Louis native who has lived on both the East & West coasts. The tight-knit community of St. Louis as well as family made it an easy decision to make St. Louis home. Organizing spaces & making them pretty AND practical comes naturally to her & is something she’s done since she was a child. Her education & experience have laid a perfect foundation for her to bring 2B Organized to St. Louis.
She graduated from the Fashion Institute of Technology with a major in Home Products Development & Marketing. She gained sales, as well as merchandising experience, from her time working in a home products specialty store, contemporary art gallery, along with a luxury department store. Most recently she worked in the purchasing area of a meeting & event planning company. In addition, her love of wine took her down the entrepreneurial path as an independent consultant educating people on the Clean-Crafted wine movement. This would be the catalyst in bringing her dream of owning her own business & love of organization to life!
Deb is a wife to an animated Aussie, mom to two precious little girls & a dog named Ozzy who is the current ruler of the house. She is constantly decorating & redecorating spaces in her own home. She loves to travel & collects cookbooks like they are pieces of art! And since she’s married to an Australian, she’s quite fluent in Australian Slang.
Deb’s favorite organizing mantras are…
- Decant, unbox, decant, repeat. Everything looks better when it’s in a clear container & out of the original packaging. Not only that, but it’s so much more functional.
- Deb also says matching hangers are a MUST! Space saving/non slip ones are her go 2, they make all the difference in a closet.”
Meet Amanda Stehl
Amanda is excited to bring her love for helping people to the St. Louis area! Her passion for organizing, her optimism & energetic attitude are some of the qualities we look for in our 2B team members & we know her clients will love her.
Amanda is eager to help clients live their best life by implementing organizing systems that work for them. Her goal is to create an atmosphere with less stress! As a wife & a full-time working mom of 2, she understands how easily a busy life can become cluttered & un-organized, which becomes a daily burden. Amanda wants to help clients by creating a lifestyle that removes the daily “time robbers” from their lives, so they can enjoy & cherish time with the people & the things that matter most.
Amanda graduated from Southern Illinois University Carbondale in 2007 with a major in Marketing & a minor in Business Management. While marketing has been her career focus for years that she has enjoyed, Amanda is beyond excited to combine 2 of her true passions, owning her own business & helping others. Amanda knew that owning her own business would be more fun with a partner, so that’s where Deb comes in! Deb & Amanda are co-owners of the St. Louis franchise & are thrilled to work together.
Amanda lives in Weldon Springs, MO, with her husband, Brett & her two kids, Parker & Sage. Her hobbies include spending time with her family, wine & cheese, playing volleyball & traveling.
Amanda’s favorite quote…
“Create a life you don’t need a vacation from.”
A few fun facts about Amanda…she’s played volleyball since she was 9 & still plays (almost) every week! She also learned how to play the guitar when she was 27 years old. #overachiever
Her favorite organizing hacks are:
- Store your fitted & flat bed sheets inside of it’s matching pillow case for a neater look.
- If you don’t have much bathroom storage, use command hooks inside of a bathroom cabinet door for hanging flat/curing irons & hair dryer.
- Small pantry? Use a shoe organizer on the inside of the pantry door to store items.
