What to Expect

So how does this work?

The first step is to call me for a free 30-minute phone consultation. We’ll discuss your organizing challenges and how you’d like your home to function. We’ll talk about how we can work together to make your dreams come true. Then, you’ll decide what kind of organizing package you would like to start with. You can choose a multiple session package, or a single session. The next step is to make an appointment to get started in your home.

When I come to your home I am there to help you, not judge you.  You don’t need to worry that I will tell anyone about your clutter. I take confidentiality very seriously, strictly following the codes of ethics of my professional associations. And I won’t faint when I see your clutter. After more than 15 years in business I have seen worse.

If you have chosen an Assessment or a multi-session package, we’ll look at your entire home. I’ll ask you to show me your problem areas. We’ll talk about your organizing challenges and how best to solve them. I’ll take notes and when we’re finished, we’ll figure out what you want to accomplish and the best place to start.

There is a bathroom counter under all the clutter.
Mornings are so much easier and more pleasant.
Less frequently used items are easily reached while being stored out of sight.

What you need to know:

I will work alongside you, not for you. You’ll learn organizing principles by listening and doing the organizing as the principles are explained. We'll work on identifying habits that are useful and the ones that aren’t working for you.

Nothing will leave without your permission. I’m not going to tell you to get rid of all your stuff. You decide what stays and what goes. I can help you make decisions, but you make the final call.

DON’T clean up before I arrive! I can’t solve problems I can’t see. I promise I won’t tell anyone about your clutter. I take confidentiality very seriously.

DON’T buy anything before our appointment. If you already have organizing products, we’ll try to utilize them instead of something new.

DON’T worry about running out of time. Most appointments are scheduled for 4 hours. This allows time to work, and time to put things away. As a Professional Organizer, I know how much to take on in an organizing session. We will make progress, and you won’t be left with a half-finished mess when I leave.

You'll learn new principles, skills, and habits. You will have fun getting organized!

A Weight off my Shoulders

Every time Elizabeth came to my home, I knew that by the end of the day I would feel like a huge weight had been lifted off my shoulders.
