Lisa Jacobs is taking over the organizational side of Tiktok and Insta with her fun, easy and valuable tips, hacks, and much-needed advice. Having organized spaces since 2004 as the founder and CEO of her business, Imagine it Done, Lisa knows what she’s doing– from organizing 2000s trends like juicy couture sweat sets to 2020s high-rise pant styles. Her followers quickly learn how to properly fold clothes (even chunky sweaters), store handbags, and generally get a sense of peace by seeing everything neat and ordered— like ASMR for your eyes. Whatever the task may be, Lisa has been there and done that.
Before becoming a Tiktok sensation and organizing for others, Lisa managed her spaces as a side hobby while working in the advertising and modeling industries in NY and Paris. As an assistant to chief creative directors of brands like Chanel and L’Oreal, Lisa realized more and more the importance of staying organized. Jump to some odd years later, and Lisa still believes that “an organized space is an organized mind is an organized life,” and she makes sure her clients and followers know that too. Today, Imagine it Done has a team of 12 professionals who work hands-on with clients in the NY and Tri-state area.
Read on for Lisa’s top ways to turn down, including organizing medicine cabinets, listening to music that flows through you, transforming your bed, and more.

What’s your favorite room/space to organize and your best tip for someone looking to tackle it themselves - feel free to link to any of your amazing videos!!
Medicine cabinets, adding acrylic trays and risers. You start by editing all items; check expirations, duplicates and whether or not still using. Then categorize by purpose and put everything away in its new home. Makes your routine so easy and streamlined for morning and night!
With such a successful business, how do you manage day-to-day obligations, family, friends, and your career while still staying organized?
I live by making lists - reviewing multiple times daily and updating as tasks are completed. I prioritize my tasks as well as my day to day social activities, doctors appointments, and most importantly family obligations. Love the feeling of crossing things off my list.
