Meet the founder of Tidy & White Ltd, Margarita (Maggie) Apaza.
Allow me to introduce myself: I was born and raised in Bolivia at the age of 13, when I started learning to organise the house by myself. I started using crafts to make things look beautiful and have always been passionate about organising! After tidying up and organising the house, I used to feel sooo….. Happy!
While my friends and other teenagers of my age were in a completely different world, I was already discovering the spark of joy that organising created in me! Without knowing!…. From the age of 17, I have been working in the field of financial accounting, where I have further honed my organisation skills. Having moved to London (still living in) where I have been raising a demanding family, working full time & studying, was not easy. Being organised for me was extremely important and it is still essential now. I found organising became natural to me. Tidying up my home gives me a sense of freedom, power and I feel confident and relaxed when I know where everything is, as well as helping me to save time & money.
My organising skills have given me the confidence to take on new challenges that I never thought I could manage before
My family, friends, & co-workers have encouraged me to share the life style I acquired in my life, therefore to bring happiness to other’s people lives. This is why I decided to start my business Tidy & White. So, on 25th May 2019, with the mission of assisting people who need help decluttering and organising at home and in the office, Tidy & White was launched
Tidy place + Tidy mind = Tidy life
