​FAQ'S

Why hire a professional organizer?
For many people, tackling clutter is difficult yet living with it is stressful. A professional organizer can help you with decisions about what to keep or let go of, find the best solutions for practical storage, and get you organized.
 
Why do you require an initial consultation?
Every organizing project is different, therefore the best way to assess the scope of your project is in person. During the initial meeting we review your project in detail, your goals, objectives and timeline. We also look at the storage options you have available and discuss which items you will need to buy. For a small/single project such as a closet, you can email photos instead of an in-person meeting.

How do you estimate which package is right for me?
During the initial consultation, we estimate how much time would be needed to complete the project. However the pace we are able to work at is also dependent on how quickly you are able to make decisions about your items, and your comfort level. We aim to keep a good pace yet support you in working with what feels right for you. If it looks as though we may go over the initial estimate, additional time will be charged by the hour.


In order to maximize our time together, you must be committed to letting go the things you no longer need so that we can focus on organizing the things you love.

Why do you have a 4-hour Minimum?
In our experience we need at least 4 hours (including for small projects such as closets etc). We offer different packages for larger projects. Hourly rates are also available after the 4-hr minimum.


Do I have to be present during the organizing sessions?
Yes, we need you to be present to make decisions about your items during the decluttering stage of the sessions (we will not remove anything without your consent) and during the organizing phase so that together we set up the space so that it works for you.

You mention supplies. Will I have to buy a lot of supplies to get organized?
We aim to work with what you have as a priority and then top up with extra storage items if they are necessary. In order to work as effectively as possible, we ask that you purchase the additional items in time for the organizing session. An hourly rate of $50 will be charged for research and online shopping for standard organizing products or $70 per hour specialty or personal shopping.

Where are your services available?
Palm Beach, Broward and Miami Dade Counties. Other areas by request. 

Can I schedule sessions during the evenings or weekends?
Typically our sessions are Monday - Friday, 9am – 3pm. For evenings and weekends by special request - $75 Surcharge.
