Caralyn Kempner


Caralyn Kempner is the founder of CK Organizers, a company that sells its patented home organizers.

She was a professional home organizer with her own business, Organizing Interiors. It was fun for her to arrange people's space effectively, and she loves helping people by teaching them how to manage their space so they can find additional peace in an organized home.

Caralyn's passion for helping people get organized led to public speaking at various community centers, schools, businesses, and libraries throughout the Chicagoland area. She also published a home organizing reference book,Top-To-Bottom Home Organizing, in 2018.

While in the professional home-organizing business, she grew obsessed with home-organizing essentials such as bins, baskets, containers, etc. Her love for such products eventually led to the development of the company's patented jewelry organizers.

Her daughters, who were in college, inspired her to create a jewelry organizer that was compact and minimal in addition to offering a no-nails solution to hang in a dorm room with cinder block walls. Hence, the small board jewelry organizer.

Caralyn married her best friend, Scott. She has three children, Casey, Jamie, and Gina, the three best reasons to have kids. She also has two little white dogs, Aspen and Stanley.

Caralyn was fortunate to have a dad who displayed the true grit of an entrepreneur. Caralyn watched her father leave the house at 5 am in the dead of a Chicago winter to work outdoors shoveling off rooftops to work on house repairs for his roofing construction business that he needed to keep active all year long. His drive and ambition greatly influenced her hustle.
