Kari was the young girl who grew up on a farm raising cows, pigs, and goats but was also the girl who had a strong desire to be creative. She was always doing art projects, redecorating her room, and rearranging anything she could get her hands on.
Organization has always been a passion of Kari’s and she is excited to turn her lifelong dream into reality! Kari brings her high energy attitude, positive outlook on life and bubbly personality to run the Austin location of 2B Organized®. She is excited to work closely with clients to create a space that brings function and aesthetics together.
Kari graduated from Texas State University where she received her Bachelor’s degree in Interior Design. She was a practicing interior designer before she was encouraged to follow her dream to become an entrepreneur in the professional organization industry. She plans to use her knowledge of interior design to bring an added level of service to each client to create a pretty and practical space.
She is married to the most charming and supportive man, Oliver. Together they have the most adorable daughter and the most spoiled & handsome dog. They live happily in the heart of Austin, Texas.
- I am obsessed with candles. There is (at least) one lit in our house at all times.
- There is no such thing as “too much” when it comes to chips and queso!
- If it’s over 75 degrees, you can find me by the lake or pool!
- Texas Country concerts and tailgating at UT football games are two of my favorite activities!
- When something comes in (t-shirt, pair of shoes, etc.), an old one must go out. This is the best way to avoid overcrowding your space.
- Keep a donation box in your closet or garage. As soon as it’s time to retire an item, drop it in the box. Once the box is full, take it to your local charity.
- When in doubt, ROYGBIV. A simple color coordination can change the entire look of your space.
- Hide your cords with Command hooks behind your furniture. This will help make your space look cleaner and more put together.
- Trays for countertops. Placing your items neatly on a tray helps to define that space and it will also help keep you organized in the future since you now have a designated spot for those items.
- Drawer organizers! They help turn a messy junk drawer into a functional multi-purpose drawer.
- Shoe racks. Getting your shoes off the floor into an organized rack makes your space more functional and beautiful!
words from my clients:
I really don’t think that my words here will do proper justice to the amazing work Kari & Kelsey did to my newly-moved-in apartment. Although I had done a deep purge before moving, the sheer amount of STUFF I was unpacking had me paralyzed with stress and anxiety—& honestly put a damper on what should be an exciting time! Enter these gals, & they found a proper home for every.single.thing. Their thoughtfulness and attention to detail is unparalleled. If there’s a fan club, I’m running for President.
INCREDIBLE!! The team at 2B Organized Austin is amazing! They had a mess of a pantry to work with & made my OCD dreams come true. I keep opening the pantry for fun just to stare at their amazing work! Kari was quick to respond to all communication from the very start, throughout the process & even after the job was completed with tips & product links to stay organized. On the day of organization, the team was efficient & thorough & helped us purged so much useless stuff we had stored in there. We are thrilled with how the pantry turned out & excited that an organized pantry will also keep us in check with grocery shopping by first using the food items we have on hand. Totally worth every penny!
Had the best experience with Kari & her team! We love how organized & clean our kitchen, mud room & gym feels! Would highly recommend, & look forward to more projects with them in the future!
MIRACLE WORKERS!! These ladies came in & made my dreadful pantry look Instagram worthy. Not to mention they are the sweetest. Highly recommend & already trying to decide what project I can get them to tackle next. Thank you, thank you, thank you 2B Organized Austin!
Beyond impressed by Kari & her team! They completely exceeded my expectations! They came in unpacked & reorganized our kitchen & pantry after a remodel. We felt a little overwhelmed after having to move out all our kitchen & these ladies made the organizing & decluttering look effortless. They created such a great system for tons of items in a small kitchen & pantry area! I can’t wait to use them again!
Kari and Kelsey are THE best. I’ve used Kari & her team to help our clients in the past with their packing, sorting, organizing—you name it—& they always get RAVE reviews. When it was time to do our own organizing, we knew who to call. I went from a semi- organized pantry & kitchen to an Instagram-worthy pantry & a beautifully organized & super functional kitchen. We no longer keep the pantry door closed—it’s an incredible feature of the house now! If we could leave the kitchen drawers & cabinets open without looking strange, we would. They look that good! Thank you Kari & Kelsey for your creativity, hard work, & for really taking the time to understand our needs & vision for a “dream” pantry & turning it into a reality. And you make it so fun, too! Now I’m obsessed & looking at what we can do with you next.
Kari & her team will work MAGIC in whatever space they are organizing. My kitchen was overwhelming & cluttered but 2B Organized Austin patiently went through each cabinet to customize a super aesthetic AND functional system for me. Not sure how they managed it, but my nightmare of a junk drawer is in an orderly system now too. They will work with your budget/style when it comes to picking organizing products & take away any trash/donation items from the process. So worth the investment—they are truly the best!
I worked with Paige & Kari for our commercial business to make our space more effective & organized. They utilized our space very well & found a place for every item. Especially when you have multiple employees it can be hard to keep everything in order, but they put systems in place for our office to stay tidy for years to come.
Kari & her team are so talented! We were moving into a brand new home & needed some help organizing, especially in the kitchen. Not only was Kari super patient when it came to scheduling & rescheduling (we kept having to move dates around on her), but she was very kind, patient & knowledgeable. She met us for an initial consultation before our move & the entire process felt super seamless & smooth. Our kitchen & bathrooms look great! It was a joy working with Kari & her team & would absolutely recommend them to anyone in the Austin area.
Kari & her team completed two projects for me. First was organizing my office & dining room spaces & the second was my entire kitchen (cabinets & pantry). The ladies did a wonderful job of sorting everything, decluttering & creating a styled & functional space. It felt like the splurge I needed! I can’t wait for them to come back & work on our next project in the house. Quick tip, if they are organizing your pantry, be sure to review items that may have “expiration dates” but you still want to keep like expensive truffle oils. They will make you a shopping list of the expired food they throw out but ya know, there are some things that I believe the expiration is more of a suggestion.
5 stars do not do these ladies justice! I’d give 10 if I could! Kari & Amanda were nothing short of amazing! They were fun, professional & turned a cluttered mess into my dream pantry! My space is now clean, functional & aesthetically pleasing! 10/10 recommend for any of your moving, downsizing, or decluttering needs!!
Kari & her team came in clutch & organized my space top to bottom, immediately relieving some lingering anxiety I had due to the clutter! It really made a difference having a professional take control & get the job done creatively & efficiently. Highly recommend!
Kari walked I to a kitchen full of boxes. She & her partner quickly got to work unpacking & sorting. Then the magic happened & all the items were beautifully organized into functional cabinets & drawers. It was so helpful to have someone help unpack &, even better, organize a very important part of the house. I look forward to bringing Kari back in to help with the next organizational project!

Kari & Paige were amazing! They took on our closet, kitchen, pantry & new baby nursery & everything is just perfect! Not only do they organize & make everything look flawless, they also teach tips & tricks along the way that will help me keep it just like they did it! Highly, highly recommend 2B Organized—this team was amazing!
The girls from 2B Organized Austin transformed our new closet & found a space for everything. We really wanted to utilize all of the space in our new home’s closet & they built 3 furniture pieces for us from IKEA for shoe & clothing storage. Highly recommend them for any project big or small. We may just have to call them again for the garage.
I’ve officially taken 500 photos & I haven’t even opened every cabinet to capture it all. To say I’m OBSESSED is an understatement. Let’s start with how great the process is. Phone call to determine the needs, then the in-house call to measure & see all the things in my kitchen & pantry & then organize day! I love how the team measured width & depth but also height to make sure the trays & bins would not be too tall. Little things like that are things that the average person don’t think of. They started by emptying the kitchen on to my counters in an organized chaos. It helped me purge a little bit too! (They also do packing, unpacking & organizing same day, too.) Then they sort, label & start the process of placing everything in its spot. In the pantry they even label the oxo containers with the expiration date. (Who thinks of these things?!) So good. Everything is so good. I love how they were able to incorporate my special jars & showcase my special kitchen pieces. I get to see my granny’s bowl every time I open the pantry. I didn’t even mention that one so to see it up there made my heart smile. They did snacks at the level for my son & a huge color drawer for him to be able to grab his art supplies without my help. It’s the bins & drawers that make a mom’s life that much easier. This is worth the investment y’all. Highly recommend the 2B Organized team!
Kari & Kelsey are not only the sweetest but are also extremely talented! I’m so in love with my new pantry & kitchen & want to show it off!! Cooking will now be something that I enjoy in my new organized kitchen! I can’t wait to book her for my next room!
We were combining our things with purchasing our new home as a newly engaged couple. I wanted 2B Organized’s help to make our move as easy as possible by unpacking & organizing our kitchen, bar area, pantry & closet. Now my fiance wants our whole house organized by this team because they did a fantastic job! Walking into our new kitchen & closet feels so light and perfect!
2021 has started out with a bang! Kari from 2B Organized Austin kickstarted my New Year’s resolution of organization with a masterful pantry makeover! The day started with an extremely chaotic & messy space & by this afternoon, it was an orderly & functional area for all my kitchen and cooking needs. Thank you, Kari, for your organizational expertise, vision & execution! To anyone who is contemplating a similar task, Kari is your girl!
