Hack Decks™ is a woman-owned business created to help people connect to themselves and others. We believe in the ability to positively impact mental health. Our area of expertise is in home organization and time management, as well as productivity and efficiency. Our home organization company, The Uncluttered Life, Inc., offers in-home organization. We also work with clients on a virtual basis. 

Declutter Deck® was the inspiration for Hack Decks™. As we watched people struggle to get control of their living environment, we witnessed the emotional toll it took on them. Working with people on a one-on-one basis provided insight into the strain clutter puts on both individuals and families. Having trained in the KonMari® (Marie Kondo) home organization method, we have had the opportunity to work with many clients. Often times we've seen an emotional component that goes along with clutter, and the release people feel when a space is organized.

Primarily, our Hack Decks™ focus on topics that can easily lead to anxiety and isolation. These include transitioning into motherhood, going off to college, visual clutter and disorganization, date night ideas that help couples connect, and community impact. As mothers, we have seen the stress that transitions can put on an entire family. Change is hard for a lot of people, and we have worked to address areas that affect many.

Our decks are different from typical affirmation cards or prompt cards. Hack Decks™ empower users not only to think positively, but act on their own behalf to improve their lives. Our prompts encourage users to establish healthy habits that last, while fostering connection to others and themselves.
