My Story

Welcome! I'm Debbie and I'm so glad you stopped by! Let me introduce myself.

As a kid, I had the most organized bedroom you've ever seen. I even created a Dewey decimal system for my beloved books, complete with check-out cards when friends borrowed them. While it was no surprise I was an English major at Texas A&M, I certainly never thought about organizing as a career after I got my degree.

 

It wasn't until 2017 when I started Basket & Bin after 20 years in the corporate world as a high-tech recruiter and account manager. While working for other companies, I'd built and managed teams and helped job seekers find their dream jobs. Eventually I decided it was time to do the same thing for myself.

 

With lots of prayer and much encouragement from family and friends, I switched careers and set out to launch my own business. Within weeks of that decision, Hurricane Harvey hit and my house, along with thousands of others, flooded. We rebuilt our home while our family of four lived in it, and suddenly I experienced what it was like to live among complete chaos. This helped me understand how different seasons of life can affect homes and the people in them, and the lessons I learned still influence every home I organize today.

 

It's a privilege to be invited into your home to help you enjoy it and the people you share it with. Whether you've recently moved, welcomed a new child, inherited things from your family, combined households or are downsizing, my team and I can't wait to help you get organized!
