Our Organizing Approach
We would love to talk with you over the phone first to assess your organizing needs. This phone assessment lasts about ten to fifteen minutes. We ask many questions regarding your organizing project, your current resources, time and availability, and what budget you had in mind. This ensures that our services are the right fit for your needs and helps us decide if we would be suitable for your project and expectations. We also are frequently able to give you a rough estimate on the price depending on which organizing service you’re interested in. Some customers will email or text us pictures. We welcome pictures but that is completely optional and not required.
On Site Appointment:
After speaking over the phone, we can proceed to set up an appointment. Each new customer can expect an onsite assessment at the start of their organizing project. This lasts about fifteen to thirty minutes depending on how big your organizing project is. During this step we are in your home or office and we talk with you in detail about the space, layout, contents, and current organizing issues. We’ll set goals and develop a game plan to reach those goals and decide where to start. We begin the organizing work right after finishing the onsite assessment and work alongside you to help you eliminate excess stuff, create new systems, and implement the best arrangement or layout for your space.
Frequently Asked Questions:
1. How long will it take to complete my organizing project?
That really depends on three things: the amount of stuff, the size of the space, and your participation in the process. After completing the phone assessment, we will have a better idea of the time frame and can give you a rough estimate.
2. What about organizing products? Will I need buy anything before you come?
You don’t need to buy anything before we come however, we do not bring organizing products with us. We always organize first and then buy exactly what we need to finish off the space. We can shop virtually with you and fill a shopping cart for you, leave you a shopping list, or shop and bring back products during a second appointment. Our suggestions & expertise will help you decide what products are right for your space. Read about our opinions on organizing products here.
3. Will you take my donations with you?
Yes as long as space is available in your organizer’s vehicle, regular donations (not furniture) for common charities such as the Salvation Army or Goodwill are included. We are not a haul away service so if our vehicle has a full load, completely filled with your things, there is a donation drop off service charge.
4. Will you share advice on room and space design?
Don’t know where to best place or use your furniture? Having trouble deciding how to use a space or shelve out a closet? We’ll share ideas to make the most of your space regarding storage usage, furniture positioning, and room layout.
