"SOMETIMES THE QUESTIONS ARE COMPLICATED AND THE ANSWERS ARE SIMPLE" - DR. SEUSS
WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE A PROFESSIONAL ORGANIZER?
A professional organizer is a trained specialist who will design and teach you about the organizing principles and systems that will help bring order to your life.
WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE A MEMBER OF NAPO?
The National Association of Professional Organizers is the leading authority on organization. Its members are dedicated to continually educating themselves on the latest skills, trends and products of the organizing industry. We learn from one another and adhere to a strict code of ethics.
HOW LONG DOES GETTING ORGANIZED TAKE?
This will depend on the size of the project, and your involvement in the process. A project can take anywhere from a few hours to several days, so the approximate time frame is better determined after the first assessment.
DO I NEED TO BE THERE?
It is highly recommended that you be a part of the process. Learning how to make decisions and practicing the techniques of organization is the most effective way to stay organized. I am willing to do a project without you if there is a clear understanding of the expectations made in advance.
WHAT IF I FEEL EMBARRASSED?
No need! There are professionals for almost every area of life, this is just one of them.
Asking for help is the best start. Please do not clean-up before I arrive. I can best help you by seeing the original state of the area.
WILL YOU MAKE ME GET RID OF EVERYTHING?
Absolutely not. We will work together to make decisions that are best for you based on your desired outcome. I will make suggestions, but you will always have the final decision.
SHOULD I BUY CONTAINERS BEFORE YOU ARRIVE?
No. It is best to evaluate the area first. We need to know what is staying and what is going before we “containerize”. When it comes to purchasing supplies, I can offer suggestions and resources for you to do it on your own, I can do it for you, or we can do it together.
ARE YOU INSURED?
Yes. You can feel confident that you and your belongings are in good hands. I take full responsibility when I am organizing in your home. While I will take the utmost care of your possessions, if something were to go wrong, I am fully insured.
WHEN ARE YOU AVAILABLE?
I am available afternoons, evenings and weekends. I am available weekday mornings in the summer.
