Frequently Asked Questions

What is a professional organizer?
Professional organizers help individuals learn the skills they need to solve organizing problems. Organizers design personalized systems and processes using established organizing principles. They provide services like home and business organizing, information and time management, as well as coaching and training.

What is NAPO?
NAPO stands for the National Association of Professional Organizers. Since 1985, NAPO has been the premier organization dedicated to the field of organizing. NAPO defines quality standards and provides education for its members, ensuring the highest level of excellence and professionalism.

How long will it take to get organized?
While organizing is a continuous process, how long it will take depends on several things. Among these variables are the size of your project, your ability to make decisions, your readiness for the process and how much of the work you would like to do on your own. We will break the work into manageable pieces and help you develop the habits and tools to keep your space maintained.

How long is an organizing session?
The initial one-hour consultation is free.  Ideally sessions are 3-4 hours in length.

What can an organizer do for me?
First and foremost I can give you the boost you may need to get started.
Here is what else I can provide for you:

  • Hands-on education
  • Information
  • Fresh ideas
  • Solutions
  • Systems which help reduce stress, save money, increase productivity which will result in a greater sense of control in your life.
  • Create a system or routine that you currently lack and keep you motivated to finish the project.
  • The ultimate goal is that I help you learn how to maintain YOUR system YOUR way long after I am gone.
What will this cost?
 The initial one hour consultation is free.  Organizing if $50 per hour.  For larger projects, discounted packages are available.  Payment is due at the end of each session. I accept cash or checks.

How does the process work?

  1. First give me a call and we will get to know each other a little bit. I want to learn your goals and priorities and what you want to change.
  2. The next step will be to set up a free one-hour consultation for an assessment of your project needs.
  3. I will help create and implement a personalized plan that will work for you and your lifestyle and that will be manageable for you to maintain.
  4. We will work in 3-hour sessions (minimum) to accomplish your goals. I will help you stay motivated and provide fresh ideas.
  5. I will follow up with you to be sure things are working for you. My job is to ensure your project success and simplify your life.

Will I have to throw my things away?
The decision is always yours, but I will help you sort through your items to help you determine what is truly valuable to you and what might be worth donating to someone else.

What if I’m too embarrassed to have anyone come into my home?
It’s normal to feel uncomfortable. I’m not there to judge you. I’m there to help.
Everyone has their own reasons for needing an organizer, and there’s no reason to be ashamed.
Be assured that these services are completely confidential.

How can I afford an organizer?
Remember, organizing is truly an investment that can change your life. Do you waste money paying late fees, waste time looking for things, lose important papers, tax documents, receipts or gift cards? Is your quality of life, your stress level or a relationship in your life suffering due to your disorganization? Then how can you afford NOT to hire an organizer?
