Vanessa Phelps – Founder, Modern Homemakers Society

Modern Homemakers Society is about embracing homemaking the way our grandmothers did, but modernizing it in a way that inspires women to let go of perfectionism and manage their homes in a way that works best for them. By equipping women with the knowledge and skills on how to balance their busy work and home schedules, we empower them to take back their time to be able to do the things they truly love to do.

Your house will not always look like the cover of a magazine….and if you have kids, it will never look like the cover of a magazine! We embrace our beautiful chaos here, take a breath, and do our best at conquering the clutter…. Every. Single. Day.

Welcome! I promise it gets easier 🙂 

Hi ladies! I’m Vanessa Phelps, a Certified Professional Organizer and founder of the Modern Homemakers Society. I help women who are overwhelmed by all their clutter, by showing them how to manage their homes in a simple, stress-free way.

I’m so excited you stopped by and hope you’ll stay a while 😉

I live my life by my 3 favorite quotes:

“When you get, give. When you learn, teach.” – Maya Angelou

“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.” – Henry David Thoreau

“Keep moving forward.” – Walt Disney

I have a great love for anything vintage, especially the 1920’s-1960’s era, and even some old-fashioned family values apply greatly here. I’m just your average girl who learned how to use the tools God gave her to create a life she loves and looks forward to waking up to every morning! I have an amazing husband, three beautiful little girls, the best friends any gal could ask for, and have learned how to truly enjoy my life and home, one day at a time. My mission is to help you enjoy yours 🙂
