Frequently Asked Questions:
Answers to our most frequently asked questions about our services and home organization in general...
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, money, 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.
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.
What if I am too embarrassed to share my mess with you?!?
As a wife and mother first, I understand and can relate! As a professional organizer I come with a non judgmental eye. We all have spaces we'd like to close the door on and call it a day! But that is not the solution.I am here to help, not judge or criticize. It brings me great joy to alleviate peoples stress due to disorganization. I am most impressed by people who take initiative to make changes in their lives. By hiring a professional organizer, you are doing just that! Often, people are surprised by how much they've gained and are motivated to continue! Life is a lot more enjoyable when clutter isn't in the way! Remember, organizing is a learned skill (even for those who are "naturally" born organized), and professional organizers are trained in imparting that knowledge.
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 our initial meeting.
What takes place at the initial meeting?
I come and evaluate the space(s) as-is (no need to get tidy beforehand) and formulate a plan of action. Then, we will discuss what challenges you have with the space(s), what you would like to see change, and what is currently working for you.
Will you be flexible and able to work around my schedule?
I’m here to work with you and your schedule.
Will my sessions be confidential?
You betcha! 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 Rates page for details.
What if I only need you for a few hours?
That’s A-Ok! There is a minimum of 3 hours for each project. In our experience any less time than that did not do justice to organizing effectively with lasting results!
What payments are accepted?
I accept cash, checks, and credit cards. Payment is due at the end of each work session (each day).
