About New Leaf Organizing Service
The age-old expression “to turn over a new leaf” is the inspiration for our name and logo.
The leaf refers not to a plant leaf,

but instead to a leaf of paper, or page, in a book. Therefore, to turn over a new leaf means to turn a page and symbolically start anew.




We believe it’s never too late to turn over a new leaf and become organized, and it is our honor and privilege to

help clients in that endeavor.
