The Proper Place
Professional Organizer + Coach
Organizing NW Iowa


Michelle Kuiken is a Professional Organizer & Coach; owner of the company The Proper Place, located west of Orange City, IA in the Northwest corner of the state.

The Proper Place comes alongside women to help them restore order and alleviate the overwhelming feeling caused by clutter – both in their homes and lives. We work in homes and home offices to maximize space, create efficient flow, improve time management, and help you feel joy in your space again. No two people function the same in their households, so we are intentional to learn about your life stage and incorporate systems that are going to best help you maintain your organization ongoing.  

The Proper Place also offers Productivity Coaching to help people create improved solutions for their life situations, and uncover what may be getting in the way of reaching their full potential as a mother, wife, friend, or strong woman. (this can be done via phone or web)

Located in a rural area of Northwest Iowa, but originally a Phoenix native, Michelle enjoys working with women from all life stages, and especially has a heart for Farm Wives, as she is a proud wife of a hard working farmer.

The Proper Place cares about each client and wants them to learn to manage their homes and schedules so they can be free to spend time where it’s most important – with family and friends.
