Frequently Asked Questions

What are the benefits of getting organized?

EVERYTHING! You will find yourself having more time, less stress, you will know where everything is located (which saves time and huge headaches), and it will make your life easier and, more importantly, happier. It makes life so much simpler when your environment is organized, clean, and it’s easy to find things.

How can an organizer help me?

A Professional Home Organizer not only helps you organize your clutter, but they also create solutions and systems to help keep it that way. They sift, sort, clean, file, de-clutter, and de-stress to help make your home a better place to live.

Why is it worth the cost?

Getting organized is an investment in yourself and a benefit to those close to you. By getting organized and maintaining an organized space, your time is spent doing the things you enjoy and that are important to you. You will enjoy increased productivity and a sense of accomplishment.

Ultimately, you will more than likely save money. You will no longer have to buy duplicates of things since you will be able to find what you need quickly and easily. You may free yourself from paying for a storage unit holding items you never used or unable to enjoy.

What should I expect?

Our process is 100% tailored to each client’s goals and availability. No step is taken without the client’s approval or request. We treat every project with sensitivity, enthusiasm, and respect. Please see the “our process” page for further details.

How long will it take?

Your project is unique to your situation, space, and personality. Each organizing project is different. The time it will take to organize a designated space varies. A lot depends on the size of the area, the number of belongings, and amount of time it takes to make decisions about belongings (keep, donate, toss). Once we get a better idea of what you’d like to get organized, your goals and availability, we will have a better understanding of how long it will take.

What happens to everything I want to get rid of?

Creating the space that’s just right for you will most likely entail some letting go of items. We support donations! If you have a preferred place of donation, let us know and we will do our best to follow through with your request. You make every decision and are in complete control of what stays and what goes. During the process, we want to support you in your decisions, and help provide guidance. Better to donate than to accumulate!

How should I prepare for your first visit?

You don’t have to do anything prior to our arrival. Although you may be tempted to clean up before the initial consultation, resist that urge. It’s important for the organizer to understand the disorganization you face. We will bring cleaning materials and rubber gloves so we can clean as we go, if required.

What should I buy prior to the start of a project?

Don’t buy a thing! You may already have containers and/or bins around the house that can be used as part of your final solution. Though you may end up making some purchases, let’s see what items you already have for store, how you want to store them, and where they will go.

Which areas do you service?

We will tackle anything from your children’s playroom to your office or kitchen pantry. Most areas of your home are covered. You can see a full listing on the “Services page”.

How do I get started?

Simply contact us “here” and tell us what needs to be addressed, what rooms/areas you’d like organized, and any other details you’d like to include. We will then get back with you and we can set up a time for our initial meeting.

What takes place at the initial meeting?

We come and evaluate the space(s) as-is and formulate a plan of action. Then, we will discuss what problems you have with the space(s), what you would like to see change, as well as what is currently working for you. We can also do this via FaceTime or Zoom.

Will you think my space is the worst you've ever seen?

We are non-judgmental, compassionate, and focused on you, not your stuff. We bring understanding, support, and encouragement to you.

Will my sessions be confidential?

Yes! When you work with a Professional Organizer, your sessions are confidential. All meeting, conversations and questions are between you and us, and no one else.

What are your travel fees?

None. Parking, toll fees, travel time, mileage and gas are factored into the flat hourly rate.

What areas do you service?

Fairfield County and Westchester County

What happens after we are done with my project?

Maintaining your organized space takes practice, and often needs tweaking over time. We will follow up with you via phone calls and emails in the weeks and months following the completion of your project. If you need help adjusting a system, we will happily work with you to refine your solution.

In addition, if after your project has concluded and you need to move on to other work or areas in your situation, we may be able to recommend other highly qualified professionals so that you can continue along your path smoothly.

Will you force me to throw things away?

NO! We will guide you into making decisions about what you’d like to keep and what you can let go of, and how best to store or display what’s left. We’re rather good at this bit!

What if I only need you for a few hours?

That’s A-Ok! There is a minimum of 4 hours for each project.
