FAQs

Why should I hire a Professional Organizer?

Think of me as a personal trainer for your home and lifestyle.  As a Professional Organizer I have the education and a special set of skills that allows me to help you with your disorganization. I also don’t have the attachment to or history with the items and spaces you need organized. This allows me to help you reach your goals. I am focused on you and your organizational goals and am not distracted by the memories that objects bring up.  

When do you schedule organization appointments?

Appointments for consultations and organization are available weekdays between the hours of 9am and 2:30pm. One weekend day a month between the hours of 9am and 5pm.  

How long will it take to get organized?

That depends on how large the space is that we are organizing and how quickly you make decisions. Each organizing session is different and each person is different. Organizing is a process, not an end result.

How do I get started?    

Contact me!  Let’s chat. I offer a free 30-minute in home evaluation where we can discuss your needs and wants for organization. During the evalutation, I will take “before” pictures and measurements of your space for reference. We will discuss the amount of time I think it will take to complete your projects, budget and discuss an organizing agreement.  

 

How much does organization cost?

Please check out my pricing page for details on pricing and packages. Materials for organizing such as bins, baskets and filing systems vary from person to person. I can help you find great materials to fit both your style and budget!

 

How to I prepare for my organizing appointment?

There isn’t much to prepare. However, if we are working in a closet please be sure your clothing is clean ahead of time.  Same goes for a linen closets or kitchen organization. If you have children that aren’t part of the organizing process I recommend getting a sitter so that you can focus of the project.  

What happens on the day of the organizing appointment?

The day is finally here!  I will arrive with my supplies and we will jump right in. We will sort and edit and finally organized your items into your existing storage bins or new ones that I have purchased for you.  


Will you help me dispose of unwanted items?

I can assist with removal of small items that can be easily donated to a local charity and will send you the donation receipt. For larger items or large quantity of items, I can recommend organizations that will pick up at your location. I can also recommend organizations for electronic recycling and other items that should not go into the regular trash or may not be accepted by a local charity.
