Free Initial Consultation (20 minutes)
Organizing is a collaborative process so it is important for both of us to feel that we are a good fit. I will ask questions, listen carefully and answer any questions you may have. Feeling overwhelmed? Do not worry! This is my forte. I will help you to feel safe and comfortable. This work is about you and your peace of mind.
Phase 1: Assessment
The next step is a three-hour assessment and decluttering session. During this visit, I will see the project in its entirety. We discuss your goals, budget and time parameters, then together create an on-site game plan and begin the process of purging and sorting.
It’s important for you to be present for this first visit so I can get a full understanding of your priorities, see how much you would like to participate in the process and together, determine our next steps. Please know that I am deeply sensitive to the fact that I am walking into your physical, personal and emotional space and all that this entails.
Phase 2: Decluttering
Keep. Donate. Discard. During the decluttering phase, we determine what to keep, what to throw away and what to donate. If there are items you would like to donate, I am happy to bring up to 25 pounds to local centers. I have numerous resources for removing larger quantities and selling items as desired.
Phase 3: Organizing
With decluttering complete, the organizing can begin! Tailored to the way you live and work, we’ll discuss the best-suited systems and tools to organize your space. Purchases of recommended organizing systems are generally made by my clients. Then, I return to set up, making sure you can easily find your possessions and maintain the neat and orderly space we have created.
Phase 4: Breathe
Need I say more?
Each situation is unique, however, 3-4 hour projects are quite common.
You may feel that monthly or quarterly maintenance would be helpful to preserve your newly organized space. Or you may find it helpful to dig a little deeper into decluttering and organizing. I look forward to supporting you in this ever-evolving process.
Larger Organizing Projects
Based upon the scope of the project and your specific needs and objectives, I will happily provide an individual estimate for larger projects. Once approved, 50% will be due prior to start of project, 25% midway, with remainder due upon project completion.
• Art Studio’s
• Living/Dining areas
• Home office: desk surface, drawers, paper, file cabinets and computer file management
Basement & Attics: in rare cases I am able to work in these areas. I can determine this immediately upon entering. If there is any detectable mold or air-quality issues I can refer you to top-notch remediation specialists.
