Annie

Annie Traurig is a world renowned expert in simplified living, sought after for her unique ability to resolve the emotional root of material clutter.

Her training began at 5 years old, when her mom was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. Annie naturally assumed the role of family caretaker, designing paper systems, cooking family meals, and assisting with administrative tasks. Her desire for beauty and efficiency were honed amid the increasingly tumultuous family environment. Moments of crisis taught her to abhor the burden of clutter, and to become a champion for ease.

She spent playdates organizing friends’ closets and packing their duffle bags for summer camp. Friend’s parents began hiring her to help them, and Annie discovered that families everywhere sought to benefit from her knack for transforming chaos into calm.

At twenty-two, Annie founded her professional organizing company, a venture which merged her two passions: writing and organizing. In doing so, Annie established herself as a pioneer in an industry few people had heard of at the time. Over a decade later, Annie remains committed to her mission to lighten the loads of people everywhere, from her many clients, to her international audience of loyal readers.

Annie’s work has been featured such places as Buzzfeed, Good Housekeeping, and House Beautiful, among many others. She is regularly featured on news outlets, podcasts, and speaking panels.

Annie, a native Detroiter, is based in Seattle. She shares a refrigerator with dual-threat writer/ photographer megastar @2straws. She subsists on plants and chocolate, and is rarely seen sans electrolyte water. “Annie,” as it turns out, is just a nickname.
