What is a Professional Organizer?
A Professional Organizer is someone who can meet you where you are in your space to help you reduce clutter and streamline your home to be more efficient and less stressful.
What are the benefits of hiring a Professional Organizer?
A Professional Organizer can help you in the areas you’re stuck or struggling in to help lighten the load from your already busy life! We can help you find systems that work for you and places for all of your things. This will help you decrease stress by regaining control of your time and space, improve the functionality of your space, and simplify your daily routine.
Who should hire a Professional Organizer?
Anyone who is feeling overwhelmed and anxious by the clutter and disorganization in their home. Anyone who doesn’t know where to start and would like to let a professional step in and take control. A Professional Organizer should be non-judgmental and we love to organize! We are here to help you work through the issues that have kept you from being able to organize on your own.
What should I expect from a Professional Organizer?
You should expect a Professional Organizer to be friendly and non-judgmental. They should be able to have a caring, courteous discussion with you about your goals and habits, and then make suggestions for systems that make your life easier. Your input is extremely important as this process is all about you! You should always expect confidentiality from a Professional Organizer.
What can I do to prepare?
No need to tidy up! I will need to see the space as-is so I can help you determine problem areas. Wear comfortable clothes and have a bite to eat so you can be ready to tackle the project at hand.
How long does it take you to organize a space?
That depends on a few things, and of course every situation is different. Part of the equation is how much stuff we have to go through, how quickly you can make decisions on what you want to keep or donate, and your availability. After our in-home consultation, I’ll be able to provide you with a scope of work.
Will you force me to throw my stuff away?
NO! A huge part of the process is purging things that are not useful or valuable to you, and I will encourage you to keep only what you need and what you love, and donate the rest to a good cause. However, I will never ask you to get rid of anything that you’re not comfortable with.
What if I feel embarrassed by my mess?
Please don’t feel embarrassed! I’m here to help and I get a ton of fulfillment from de-cluttering and creating a space that you love. My services are confidential so all the work we do together is just between the two of us. Plus, I’ve probably seen worse – trust me!
Will you clean the spaces you organize?
I will provide some light cleaning as I organize within reason.
Do I need to be present while you organize?
This is entirely up to you! It would be beneficial for you to be involved during the purging stage, but otherwise I’m happy to organize solo or with your help.
What areas of organization do you work in?
Just about anything! I can organize bedrooms, closets, kitchens, living rooms, home offices, kids' rooms, craft rooms, paper storage and filing systems – you name it!
Should I pre-purchase organizing products?
Usually we can use the items you already have on hand in your home, but if necessary, I’m happy to make recommendations for you or shop for you between sessions. Any supplies purchased will be billed to you at cost – I don’t charge anything extra for this service!
Will you take before and after pictures?
I love to see the comparison before and after, but I will only take pictures with your permission, and your personal information is always confidential.
How much do your services cost?
You can find all of my pricing here. I work in three-hour increments and offer package pricing so you can get the best value for your project needs. I accept cash, check, credit cards and Venmo.
What is your cancellation policy?
All sales are final – I do not offer refunds for purchased sessions, but will happily work with you on rescheduling appointments as needed and with enough notice. Cancelled or rescheduled appointments less than 48 hours prior are subject to a $50 cancellation fee.
When and where are you available?
I proudly serve the Dallas/Fort Worth area! I am available most weekends and some evenings by request.
How do I get started?
You can find all of my contact information here. We’ll schedule an in-home consultation and from there I will be able to create a game-plan just for you!
