A professional organizer will help you clear your mind. Organized space helps you feel less stressed and can improve one’s mindset.

“A cluttered car equals a cluttered life, but if the space around you is clear you’ll have a clear mind throughout the day.”

I will be able to offer references for other home services, objective feedback, suggestions, and support along the way while making these changes. In the end you’ll free up more time and focus on what is truly important to you. After hiring a professional organizer you can invite guests over without thinking twice!

How do you charge for services? Hourly? Package deals?

Will you provide me with a written proposal or contract?

Can you outline your approach/process?

How much time will it take to get my space organized?

I can work as fast as you can make decisions. It is my goal to help get your space organized in an efficient and timely manner, while acknowledging every person will have different lifestyles and obstacles to consider. After our initial consultation, I will have a better understanding of what can be achieved in the designated time frame.

 

Will you make me get rid of all my things?

No. You have the final say of what will stay and go. I am here to assist you in making choices on what will be considered trash, donated, sold, or kept. My role is to help guide you through this process.

 

Should I purchase any supplies?

Purchasing organizational supplies is not necessary until after we have completed our initial consultation. Different supplies will pertain to each client and that can be determined after initial evaluation.

 

How will I maintain my space?

It may be difficult at first, but know that it takes 21 day to form a new habit. I suggest you maintain your best over that first 21 days to become fully engaged in putting items away before more and more items become out of place. If questions with maintenance arise, please do not hesitate to contact me.
