FAQs

dreamstimesmall_26189170Are you the right organizer for me?

There’s only one way to find out: Let’s talk. Before we meet, we’ll speak for about 30 minutes so I can assess your needs and concerns. We’ll talk about your goals and your vision for your space.


What happens during an organizing session?

We’ll work together as a hands-on team in three-hour sessions, tackling the areas we discussed in our get-acquainted call. You’ll begin to see changes as we purge things you no longer want or need, make room for what you use and love, and craft a system designed to meet your needs.


How long will it take for me to get organized?

That’s hard to say. Some variables that affect the amount of time involved include the scope of the project and its condition, as well as your interest to take on “homework” between sessions. (No pressure, I promise.)


My space is a mess. Can I straighten up before you arrive?

It’s tempting, I know, but please don’t. I need to see what’s not working for you so I can create a personalized strategy that will remedy the problem. You’ll get the best results if I can see your space in its natural state.


Will you make me throw stuff away?

Absolutely not. But if you’re open to letting go of items you no longer want, need, love or even like, you’ll have a more productive experience. And you’ll be more likely to achieve the goals you envisioned when you first called me.


What happens to the items I no longer want?

I believe in recycling, reusing and repurposing wherever possible. I have many resources to find good “homes” for the items you no longer want or need. Adding to our landfills is always my last resort.


What about confidentiality?

As a member of the National Association of Professional Organizers, I adhere to its code of ethics. Your personal information is never shared, sold or discussed with anyone other than you.


I’m eager to get organized, but my spouse/partner/child isn’t. Will this work?

Any goal is easier to achieve when the whole team is on board, of course. But don’t worry. Once your significant others see how much more functional your space is and how much happier you, don’t be surprised if s/he becomes a huge organizing fan.


What supplies do I need to buy?

Nothing. At least not yet. I always try to repurpose materials including storage containers, shelving and furniture you already own. Then, if you do need additional items, I can recommend the best places to find goods that are ideal for your space and your needs.
