Answers to our most frequently asked questions…

What is a Professional Home Organizer?

A Professional Home Organizer is someone that helps you to overcome clutter and disorganization to make your life, less stressful and your time, more efficient.

Why hire a Professional Home Organizer?

A Professional Home Organizer not only helps you organize your mess, but they also create easy-to-follow systems to help keep it that way. They are there to help you through the entire process or to get down and dirty and do everything themselves. They are there to sit, sort, clean, file, de-clutter, and de-stress to help make your home a better place to live.

What are the benefits of getting organized?

EVERYTHING! You will find yourself having more time, less stress, you will know where everything is located (which saves time and huge headaches), and it will make your life easier and, more importantly, happier. Your environment plays a huge part on your attitude, outlook, and even blood pressure levels. When it’s in disarray, that will reflect and play an immediate part on your life. It makes life so much simpler when your environment is organized, clean, and it’s easy to find things.

Who hires a Professional Home Organizer?

Most people who hire Professional Home Organizers simply don’t have the time to do the work, aren’t able to do the work, or don’t know where to get started. Whatever your situation, I’ll be glad to help you! I enjoy teaching and coaching clients so they can maintain the progress but I am available for “maintenance” appointments as well.

Which areas do you service?

I will tackle anything from your children’s playroom to your kitchen pantry. Almost all areas of your home, office and vehicles are covered. You can see a full listing of areas and rooms serviced on the Services page. You can also view Before & After photos of spaces I’ve organized.

Will you work with me or just coach me?

It’s entirely up to you. If you don’t want to touch a thing, you don’t have to. But, if you or anyone else wants to help, it’ll get the job done faster, and in the end, save you money.

How do I get started?

Simply contact me here and tell me what needs to be addressed, what rooms/areas you’d like organized, and any other details you’d like to include. I will then get back with you and we can set up a time for a consultation.

What’s involved with the consultation?

During our first phone conversation, we’ll discuss your organizing project to determine your goals, expectations and timeline. We will discuss the problems you have with your space, what you would like to see change, and what is currently working for you. At the end of the consultation, we will schedule the organizing appointment, a minimum of three hours.

Will you be flexible and able to work around my schedule?

I’m here to work with you and your schedule.

What do I need to do before the organizing session?

Absolutely nothing! Clients always think they have to “pick up their space” before I come to organize. That is not necessary because it’s actually beneficial for me to see the space as is so I can see what’s working and what needs to change in your space. Don’t worry, I have seen all kinds of spaces and I am here to help alleviate the “embarrassment factor”.

What will happen during the organizing session?

We will work together to address your organizing challenges and the best use of your space. We will then sort items and put them in a system that works best for you and the space. Every client and every space is different which is why it’s important that the system fits your needs.  Some projects are quick and easy while others may take longer and I understand that everyone makes decisions at a different pace.

Will my sessions be confidential?

Of course! All meeting, conversations, and questions are between you and I, and no one else. To see other guidelines I stand by, please read the bottom section of my About page.

What are your rates?

Please see the Services page for details.

Do you offer discounts?

Yes! When you refer someone to me and they use my services, you will receive one free hour towards your next organizing session. If you would like to pre-purchase hours to save money, I also have package rates available. Contact me for details!

What if I only need you for a few hours?

That’s totally fine! There is a minimum of 3 hours for each project.

What payments are accepted?

I accept cash or check, and payment is due at the end of each work session (each day).

Do I need to buy organizing products?

I will make the most of the organizing items you already own. Based on your specific project, I may make suggestions for baskets, shelving, containers and other organizing tools that would add greater value to your space if used. You’re welcome to purchase these items yourself as we complete the project or add them later – it’s completely up to you. I will be glad to purchase organizers ahead of time for your particular space with advance payment. Any supplies I bring to the project may be purchased if desired and payment is due the day of service. Even though they’re helpful, buying extra organizers is not required.

Do you help people who are moving or recently moved?

Yes, I absolutely love to help people who are in the moving process! Getting organized before you move will not only help your house look better for showings but it may also help your home sell faster. Who wouldn’t want that?! If you have recently moved and still have moving boxes, I would love the opportunity to set up your new space. There’s nothing better than having an organized home right from the start.

Do you make people get rid of everything?

Nope. Some people have the idea that Professional Organizers make people get rid of everything but that is simply not true! I respect you and your possessions. I want you to enjoy the items in your home. It’s your stuff and it’s completely your decision on what you keep, donate, sell or toss out.
