Questions you may have...
What's the benefit of hiring an organizer?
Hiring a professional will save you time and stress. I am educated in ways to make organizing simple and efficient. I have experience in optimizing spaces to make them work, I know the most effective materials and often overlooked strategies. I can provide moral support, offer suggestions, and be a sounding board for ideas. By hiring a pro, you are investing in your home and committing to improving your situation instead of just stressing about it. Plus, we almost always find money during a job. It literally pays.
How does it work?
Do you think you could benefit from some professional organizing help? Give me a call, shoot me an email, or fill out the contact form on my website. I'll contact you shortly to discuss your organizing needs. We'll talk about your goals for space and if you'd like to proceed, I'll send you a contract and we'll set up a date! You'll need to decide whether virutal or DIY organizing is right for you.
How about virtual organizing?
Virtual organizing starts the same way-- with a conversation about the issues you're having. We'll either talk on the phone or video conference. You'll show me your space and we'll braingstorm.
Next, based on our conversations and pictures, I'll walk you through making some changes in your space. I'll send a synopsis of our converastion through email with some "homework" for you and we'll schedule a follow up chat. We'll continue this until your space is done-- and we can work at a pace that works for you.
You will be billed at the hourly rate for the time we spent "together" generally 1-2 hours total per space.
What's Do-It-Yourself Organizing?
DIY Organizing is me providing you a written organizational plan based on your space and your needs, complete with step-by-step directions, a personalized Pinterest board, and a shopping list. Then, using this information, you organize your space yourself at your own pace. You can contact us with questions or issues you run into. And, of course, we'll want to see your fabulous "after" pictures!
Any other "fine print" I should know about?
I'm an insured small business. I have a business contract clients will need to sign. While the contract is standard, it protects me and it protects clients. Here are some clauses in the contract:
I am a member of NAPO and agree to follow the NAPO Code of Ethics.
I will not share any pictures or client information on social media unless I have permission to do so.
I have a 24-hour cancellation policy that I may choose to waive or apply at my discretion.
Payment is expected immediately following each session. Clients will be provided with an invoice. Check and credit (through PayPal) are accepted. Bounced checks and late payments are subject to fees.
