A Professional Organizer is an expert in decluttering and creating organizing systems that work for you and your family. We teach you how to maintain your spaces after we are gone. Each Organizer is unique, bringing a special set of skills and life experience to the job. Professional Organizers can help you with small tasks like organizing a junk drawer, a kitchen pantry or your master closet ~ all the way to a full house declutter and organization.
An Organizer will support you as you make the tough decisions on what is important to you and what stuff you no longer use, need or want. Where an item lives or whether something stays or goes, is completely up to you! An Organizer will simply guide you through the process of making decisions and offer expert and objective advice to help you along the way.
Professional Organizers assist you with the physical work, such as emptying and clearing the space. We then establish organizational systems in your home. We can recommend, shop for and supply suitable storage options including basic or custom labeling. We are happy to use items you already have or assist you in acquiring new items to help create a functional space.
If you are worried that you will never be able to maintain an organized space, don't be!! Organizing habits can be developed over time. If for some reason you need a little extra help in maintaining those spaces we offer maintenance packages.
Organizing sessions are 4 hours. Additional time may be purchased as needed.
After our FREE 15 minute phone consultation we start with a 4 hour session. We will walk through and view the home spaces that you wish to declutter and organize. We briefly go over the contract paperwork and then get working
Yes of course! All meetings and sessions are between you and me or my team, if applicable.
It is tough to accurately estimate how long a space will take. Each project is unique in its own way. Each client is different. There are many factors to consider:
* the size of your space
* how much stuff is in your space
* how many other rooms get involved
* how quickly you make decisions to purge or relocate items to other spaces
* the number of distractions while working
Our job is to keep you on task working at a comfortable pace. All sessions start with a minimum 3 hour booking. Additonal hours may be purchased as needed or desired.
A very general idea of how long rooms take are as follows:
3-4 hours ~ Pantry, Hall Closet, Linen Closet, Bathroom, Laundry Room, Dining Room, Kid’s Closet, Nursery, Living Room
6-8 hours ~ Kitchen, Home Office, Bedrooms, Master Closet
Typically garages and basements take 10+ hours
Again, these are very general guidelines. Each situation is unique.
It is hard to say because there are so many variables. Every project and every client is different. Each client has different needs and expectations. However, all budgets can be accommodated. All organizing sessions have a 3 hour minimum booking.
I accept cash, checks, credit cards, or paypal. Please note that there is a $30 fee for each returned check. There is a 3% fee added to all PayPal and credit card purchases.
Payment is always due by the end of each organizing session ~ each day. Prepayment is also available on this website under "pricing".
