Welcome to Jigsaw.
Hello! My name is Adeilah Dahlke and I am a Trained Professional Organizer with a lifelong passion for helping find solutions for everyday struggles with organizing, and I try to do so in the most eco-friendly way possible.
I am proficient in downsizing and helping you free yourself of items that have been holding you back, as well as with preparing you to move (whether to a larger or smaller space) and organizing tight spaces such as a closet or pantry.
What really sets me apart from other organizers is that my main goal is to get you organized and declutter your possessions, not to give you a picture perfect space that can be hard to maintain. I try to simplify your life without adding more items - as we can usually find a way to keep things tidy without new organizing supplies, or by using things you already have!
I also try to dispose of your items in the most sustainable way possible: either by selling, consigning, donating, upcycling or giving away for free to people who want/need items.
If you are needing some help to declutter and organize, but want to do so in the most sustainable way possible, then I am the best organizer for you!
I have always loved organizing. In high school I would colour-code my notes and agenda to make my academics more efficient. I always kept my room tidy and would even organize my friends’ rooms when I was visiting with them.
But I never knew I could make a career out of it! I stumbled across Professional Organizers in Canada after I had graduated Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo with a Bachelor of Arts in English Language and Literature. I was at a point where I didn’t know what I wanted to do with my life, but I was packing up my house to move at the time, and that’s what really got the ball rolling!

How Jigsaw Evolved
Jigsaw Organizing Solutions was not always the way it is today. I started my business just wanting to be an organizer, not really knowing where my business would lead. I focused on making people’s homes look pretty with brand new bins, labels on everything - like what a lot of organizers do - what is expected of you to make something look “organized”.
I started living a more sustainable personal life, and wanted my business to encompass those values as well. I now encourage my clients to live more minimally and in a sustainable way. Whether it is reusing what they already have to get organized, or just re-thinking their shopping methods, there are so many ways that I can help someone bring together organization and sustainable living!
