Hey y’all, how are you? I’ve got soooooo much to tell you I don’t even know where to start! Things at 2B Organized and in my world have been CRAZY, but in a good way. 2B Organized has added 2 new locations & I became business partners with 2 awesome people. I’ve been working on my book, starting the barn at Dixie Hill Farm & wrapping up my 4th & final year as the President of the Springfield Police Foundation. Oh, and I just turned 50. WOW! My husband & BFF surprised me with an amazing party with everyone & everything I love, including 2 baby goats! Yes, you read that right! You don’t have goats at your parties? Hmmm…that’s lame. hahaha
Anyway, I’m excited to get back in the swing of things and I’m committed to doing more writing this year. Soooo…WHAT do you want to read about? I really want to hear from you. Will you give me a shout out on social media with your requests? More funny stories? Organizing tips? Excerpts from my book? Franchise locations updates? I really want to give you what YOU want…you’re my people after all!
So, until I hear from you, I’m gonna start by introducing my new business partners. They are, in a nutshell, the absolute BEST! Can’t wait to hear from you.
You’ve heard it before, right?
- Change is hard.
- People don’t like change.
- Change isn’t always good.
- If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
Yeah, I’ve heard them all too and agree. BUT… we’re CHANGING anyway! And it’s ALL GOOD!

Karlee Alves is the President of2B Organized® . She is extremely ambitious and very excited to share her lifelong passion for organizing in the Northern California area! While growing up, Karlee vividly remembers going over to her best friend’s house and reorganizing her parents’ pantry and kitchen. She also remembers reorganizing her bedroom frequently and color-coding her closet and hangers. Karlee was born with a strong entrepreneurial spirit and always knew one day she would own her own business.
Karlee graduated from California State University, Sacramento and worked in the insurance industry for several years. Most recently though, after committing to self-reflection and therefore discovery has decided life is much too short not to pursue her passion! After many hours of researching various options in the professional organizing space, Karlee found Betsy—the rest is history! She not only has opened her own location in Northern California, but has also jumped on board as a member of the executive team.
Karlee currently lives in El Dorado Hills, with her husband John, two daughters; Aubree & Claire and their dog, Jax. In her free time, she enjoys planning the next party, re-decorating her house, running, cycling and spending time with her friends and family!
