Personal Organization FAQ

Why Do I Need a Personal Organizer?

I believe that everyone deserves a sense of peace when they enter their home; your home should be your refuge.  However, most of us are busy handling our day to day responsibilities, and big projects like cleaning out the garage or home office get pushed to the back burner.  Let’s face it, those projects can be overwhelming!  I will help you in two ways.  First, you commit to a date and time to tackle the project.  There is a sense of accountability once we set an appointment.  Second, and most important, you’re not doing it alone!  We will work together to do the heavy lifting, both literally and figuratively, and we will find a way to make it fun.

How Does A Personal Organizing Session Work?

Our sessions are scheduled in 2-hour blocks.  When you book your session you can book it for 2, 4, 6 or 8 hours depending on the size of your project.  If we cannot complete the project in the allotted time, you may be assigned “homework” and we’ll schedule a follow up session about a week later.  We will not stop until you are comfortable with the outcome.

I ask that you have extra bags or boxes handy and have an idea which area of your home or office you would like to start with.  Also, comfortable clothes and shoes are a must.

When I arrive, we’ll clarify what your goal is, then we’ll jump right in!  You control the music, whatever gets you moving, and we take frequent water breaks because hydration is important.  I will help you decide what gets to stay, what moves on to a new home, or what is just plain trash.  When we are finished, you will be surrounded only by the things you love.

Do I Need to Go Out and Buy a Bunch of Bins Before You Arrive?

Absolutely not!  Believe it or not, most of us already have all of the storage we need.  You will be surprised once we dive into your project.  After we sort through everything, if we need to grab a couple containers we’ll do it then.  It doesn’t make sense to spend money on things you’re not sure you’ll use.  I do ask that you have plenty of trash bags and bags or boxes for items you want to donate.

What Types of Services Do You Provide?

  • General – This is where we tackle your garage, the kids’ playroom, or any other space in your home that keeps you from having a sense of peace.  We’ll clean it out, put back what belongs, then do a little light cleaning, dusting and vacuuming, to make it a calm, welcoming area.
  • Moving – If you’re moving, it’s a great idea to do a purge before you move, especially if you’re paying movers by the pound!  We’ll work together to make sure you only pack and take what you love.  If you’ve already moved, that’s okay too.  We’ll unpack and find the perfect place for everything in your new home.
  • Post Loss – Losing a loved one is hard, and sometimes dealing with the possessions they’ve left behind will compound the emotions.  We will patiently go through your loved ones things to determine what you want to keep, and what you can bless others with.
  • Personal Shopping – Sometimes, you do need those bins! I’ll run out to grab just the right finishing touches for your project.
