FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT DOES A PROFESSIONAL ORGANIZER DO?
Professional organizers provide an array of services from decluttering closets, pantries and playrooms to organizing a move, and creating systems of productivity to help save you time and money. Our ultimate goal is to help you simplify your life and create functional spaces that you love to live in and are also easier to maintain. We will create systems that work for you and your lifestyle. We want to make it easy to have a home you love to live in; one that brings you joy, and reduces overwhelm. We assess your individual needs and goals during the consultation.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING THE INITIAL CONSULTATION?
The first step to working with us is scheduling a complimentary consultation. During this initial meeting, we will look at your space and discuss your goals, timeline, and budget for the project. We will also snap a few “before” pictures for our own reference, and measure your space. Since our services are tailored to you and your unique situation, we want to get a good feel for you and your space, and what is working and not working for you so we can make personalized recommendations and create a plan together. This consultation lasts less than an hour, and you do not need to do anything to prepare. To schedule this consultation, simply fill out our request form, and we will contact you to arrange a suitable time.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO ORGANIZE MY SPACE?
Each project is unique, and timing will depend on several factors including the amount of items you own and your ability to make decisions. Once we meet with you for your initial consultation to discuss your needs and see your space, we will be able to estimate the best package for your project. We respect your time and your wallet, and do our best to complete the project in a timely manner; communicating with you throughout the project on our progress.
WHAT IS INCLUDED IN YOUR PRICING?
Our organizing services are packaged to include everything you need to complete your project start to finish, so there won’t be any surprises. Included with all services are the hours we spend in your home hands-on decluttering and organizing your spaces as well as any additional time spent sourcing or shopping for recommended supplies*, coordinating with other service providers, space planning, trip charges within our regular service area, haul away of donation items or arrangement for pick up, and any communication in between sessions and up to 30 days after for follow-up questions and support. We want to make it easy to achieve your vision for your space and take the guesswork out by including what you need to complete the project start to finish. *Cost of supplies are not included.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING A SESSION?
How much involvement you have in the sessions is completely up to you. Whether you want to work side-by side with us to declutter and organize your space, or simply want us to do it all for you, we will customize our services to meet your needs and desires. Either way, a typical session usually has four parts; sorting, decluttering, organizing, implementing systems. We want to ensure the space works best for you, and that you will be able to maintain them. Our goal is to create spaces that are beautiful AND functional.
ARE YOU GOING TO MAKE ME GET RID OF ALL MY STUFF?
We will make recommendations on what to keep or not based on your space and needs, but the decision to purge anything is always entirely yours. If you do decide to let go of anything, we have several non-profits we work with to ensure the items are passed on in an impactful way and lasting way. We like to think our services help more than just our clients, but our entire community.
