Professional Organizer Turns House Into Home For a Single Dad and His Boys

For professional organizer Barbara Reich, no cluttered room is a challenge. With a 360-degree approach to organizing, Barbara can take any room from messy to magical! With more than 15 years of experience, Barbara has appeared on TODAY and has also written an award-winning book for Simon & Schuster, "Secrets Of An Organized Mom," where she teaches readers how to apply the four steps of organizing -- Purge, Design, Organize, Maintain. In HooplaHa's newest hit web series, "Life Organized with Barbara Reich," Barbara puts her organizational skills to work in an effort to improve the lives of those who need it most.

In this pilot episode, Mike McLeod is a 35-year-old single dad with two sons. Aside from his full-time job, he tries to make ends meet by working as a basketball trainer and referee. He gives back to his community by getting involved in many civic projects. His day begins at 5:30 a.m. and ends at 1 a.m. We surprised Mike and his boys with a visit from Barbara to organize the space in his kitchen so he can cook better meals and have space for his boys to do their homework. Watch this inspirational video as Barbara completely changes this room and gives the McLeod family an amazingly clutter-free space to enjoy quality time together
