“You can no longer afford NOT to be organized. Organizing has become a survival skill for the modern age…” – Julie Morgenstern, Organizing from the Inside Out
WHAT’S THE FIRST STEP?
Let’s have a phone conversation to cover the basics – help me understand what you need to get done, and help you understand who I am and how I work. We then schedule a FREE appointment at the project site to meet in person and make sure all your questions are answered and you are comfortable with me. Once you sign on, we schedule an organizing session.
WHAT HAPPENS IN A SESSION?
First we determine your goals for the project and for the session. With those in mind we find the best place to start. Next, we declutter. With my guidance, you decide what gets to stay and what has to go. There may be many items that are let go, or there may only be a few. You always have full control! These are your belongings, and this is your space. I make recommendations, but you make the decisions. Once decluttering is complete, we organize. This involves reviewing your daily routine to determine the best place for the things that get to stay. We put everything in its place, using storage solutions that are easy, simple and right for you. Throughout the entire session we discuss how you can keep those positive changes going. When we’re done I will take your donations to charity and provide you with the receipt.
HOW MUCH WILL WE GET DONE?
A typical organizing session takes four hours, but I’ve done as little as two and as many as six hours. We decide on an appropriate session length when we make our appointment. How much we get done during our session depends a lot on how quickly you can evaluate my recommendations and make decisions. It is also important for you to be fully dedicated the entire time and keep distractions to a minimum. This having been said, we will work at a pace that’s right and comfortable for you.
HOW MANY SESSIONS WILL I NEED?
Working at a steady and comfortable pace, the number of sessions will depend on your goals, and the size and complexity of the project. Are we doing a closet, a room, a home, or an entire property, including outbuildings? Are we putting the finishing touches on a relatively organized space, or are we starting with piles and boxes? It’s entirely possible that your project is completed after only one session. Should you need more sessions to reach your goal, package pricing is available.
